With some 65 million Americans stuck inside this weekend due to the potentially devastating hurricane, what are you supposed to do but read some comics! While paper-based products will be the most useful if the power goes out, if you want to burn a few pixels, there are tons of great comics online to keep you busy.
ComiXology has just released a new version and from fooling around with it a few minutes on our mother’s iPad, it’s great. They’ve launched their own “Good books for bad weather” promo, so go dig in.
First issue of Spider-Island: I Love New York City
One free comic we already have given the Beat stamp of approval to: the debut oif Spider-Kitty above, written by Skottie Young with art by Dave Guertin and Greg Baldwin of CreatureBox. Nice to see one of the big two actually embracing the cutecore comics movement.
If you don’t know CreatureBox, check out more from this incredibly talented duo at their website.
The print edition just came out, but if you haven’t purchased it yet, preview over 250 pages of Kagan McLeod’s kung fu epic INFINITE KUNG FU, at the Top Shelf 2.0 website.
We’ll be back with some more suggestions and linkage (The Beat is stuck inside too!) but in the meantime, check out our epic webcomics recommendation thread from June with hundreds of webcomics in the comments.
