Over the next few weeks, two national events will take place to help put pressure on our elected officials to enact legislation to combat gun violence. Organized in part by the student survivors of the horrific Florida high school shooting, the National School Walk Day is scheduled for Wednesday, March 14 with the national March for Our […]
We’ve praised Jed McGowan’s webcomics here several times in the past – with their bold graphics and science-based themes, they are smart and thought provoking. Well, he’s got a new short story: “Uninhabitable“. It’s about what happens when billions of terraforming nanobots are set loose on a planet. It’s one of his best yet, tapping into […]
There’s a reason why I chose Carta Monir as the cartoonist of 2017. She’s an incredibly talented artist and is capable of illustrating deeply personal story. There’s always this sort of bittersweet quality to her work that I find appealing. There’s this palpable trauma and sadness underlying her work, just as there’s this sort of […]
With a cover price of 10¢ and a 250,000 print run, this comic, first published in 1957, shows the power of the medium to inspire and educate.

Specifically Glynnis Fawkes’ Greek Diary, which is kinda what it sounds like – an Award-nominated look at a […]
Noelle Stevenson posts a “year in review” comic every December. The creator of Nimona and now showrunner on She-Ra doesn’t do many comics these days, which is sad, and these show her in a rare autobiographical mood. It’s not Stevenson’s usual genre, but when she goes there it’s powerful stuff. This year’s directly addresses how […]
Despite not actually posting a free comic EVERY DAY in 2017, we wrote a bout a lot of free comics – but there are still so many to write about, so free comics will continue (almost) every day until they shut us down. To round out 2017 I thought I’d look at some of the […]
