24 Hours of Webcomics, the Master List


On Friday we celebrated webcomics here at The Beat with a day completely devoted to the subject: 24 Hours of Webcomics! For your viewing pleasure, here is a master list of all the webcomics featured.

24 Hours of Webcomics: Thunderpaw In the Ashes of Fire Mountain


I’ve mentioned Jen Lee’s THUNDERPAW: IN THE ASHES OF FIRE MOUNTAIN before as a “Future comic” — the panels are animated gifs, a technique that is still being explored for its storytelling possibilities. Since I first wrote about it, a lot more has been posted and if anything it’s gotten more and more impressive. Bruno […]

24 Hours of Webcomics: Red Meat


There are only two newspapers in Tucson, which is surprising for a place with a population of a million people. Ever since I was old enough to read I picked up the alternative paper – the Tucson Weekly – and skipped all the way to the back just to read my favorite comic strip, Red Meat. […]

24 Hours of Webcomics: Oglaf


Oglaf – “Warning. This comic started out as an attempt to make pornography.” begins the opening page of the website. “It degenerated into sex comedy pretty much immediately.” Confirm that you are over 18 and we’re on our way!

24 Hours of Webcomics: Colonus


My great weakness is for stories set in space, which is where we are by the start of Colonus by Ken Pisani and Arturo Lauria. The concept is high concept… but also effortless. In a future where Earth is no more, the survivors have split into two groups. The prisoners, madmen, outcasts have been exiled to Venus, […]

24 Hours of Webcomics: VectorBelly


Sometimes you like a webcomic because it tells a story you can’t find anywhere else. Sometimes you like a webcomic because it’s NONSENSE.

24 Hours of Webcomics: David Fitzsimmons


Some of my most fondest memories were spending time at my great grandmother’s house during the brutal Tucson summers. My mother would wake my sister and I at the crack of dawn to drive us to my Nana’s house. We had a morning routine that included drinking dark roasted coffee, and scrambled eggs with burnt […]



STRONG FEMALE PROTAGONIST is a relative newcomer to the world of webcomics.  Written by Brennan Lee Mulligan and drawn by New York School of the Visual arts student Molly Ostertag, it was initiated in 2012 and already boasts three issues ranging in length from 22 to 50 or more pages. As the title suggests, the […]

24 Hours of Webcomics: The Phoenix Requiem

The Phoenix Requiem

The Phoenix Requiem is probably one of the most beautiful webcomics I’ve read. It is also now complete after 25 chapters and 800 gorgeous pages – the perfect time to sit down and start reading!

24 Hours of Webcomics: Nimona


Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona is the story of an impetuous, eager, and (most notably) successful villainous sidekick, who is also a shapeshifter. Set during a time of knights and black magic and lancing and people living in tents, Nimona is a silly but thoroughly charming webcomic which has grown impressively in style and content over the […]

24 Hours of Webcomics: TAILS


Ethan Young’s webseries TAILS has been running since 2009 and springs from a 2006 mini-series of the same title. In transit, the comic has appeared in a first collected print volume from Hermes Press, and a second volume is imminent, on Diamond solicitation lists this month. TAILS brings a fictionalized “cartoon Ethan” to life as […]

24 Hours of Webcomics: The Summer of Blake Sinclair


A gorgeous, slow, relaxed and delightful body of work, The Summer of Blake Sinclair tells a long-form story over a series of short moments. Created by Sarah Burgess, it’s a webcomic where the overall story doesn’t matter as much as the sense of evoking a mood, and feeling. In this case, that mood is of […]

24 Hours of Webcomics: SCHMUCK


SCHMUCK is the brain-child of pop culture man about town and award-winning photographer Seth Kushner. He sets out to tell a semi-autobiographical story  in the hands of a host of talented comic artists featuring the brutal honesty of real life when looking for love. One of the dominant themes is coming from a Jewish background, […]

24 Hours of Webcomics: Sinfest


Sinfest is most probably a comic everyone has heard of – Tatsuya “Tats” Ishida’s daily strip has been going strong for some thirteen years now but things have recently taken a surprising feminist turn.

24 Hours of Webcomics: The Ghost Engine


Just wrapped up by creators Danny Djeljosevic and Eric Z, The Ghost Engine is a funny, smart series told over the course of four chapters. Featuring great character work and especially zippy dialogue, the series is a buddy story following two people who have ghosts in their heads.

24 Hours of Webcomics: Sin Titulo

Sin Titulo

Sin Titulo is a master class in comics storytelling, courtesy of the ridiculously talented Cameron Stewart of Seaguy, Batman and The Other Side fame. It is also the only webcomic I’ve experienced genuine rage when reading, because my goddamn 16 MB/s connection wasn’t loading the next page fast enough.
