This is a fun webcomic I thought my readers would enjoy.  The strip has a real oldschool feel and would fit in well in a newspaper comic section.  The humor reminds me of something halfway between the Far Side, and Non Sequitur.  The art has an appealing simply style that is drawn with thick black lines, and the coloring is top notch.

“When a man starts out with nothing,
When a man starts out with his hands,
Empty, but clean,
When a man starts out to build a world,
He starts first with himself.”

Here are some book trailers I thought were cool.

And just for good measure – here’s some truly adolescent cartoony ultra-violence, provided for you in stop motion form.

Recent Webcomic Finds

5 Jun

Here are some recent webcomics that I’ve discovered.

Strong Female Protagonist by Brennan Lee Mulligan and Molly Ostertag

I found Strong Female Protagonist when The Beat recently did their 24 hours of webcomics stunt.  SFP is a story in comic book format about a college-age girl who has adventures as a superhero until she decides being a superhero isn’t the best way to change the world for the better.  She continues on her do-gooding path, however, and they are some surprises, like befriending the dude she once considered a super-villain.  It’s a fun comic, with a lot of warmth and humanity.

Tripp By Bill Taylor

Tripp follows the story of Tripp, who’s kind of a Joe Schmoe cubicle worker guy.  His life turns upside down when he’s visited by the ghost of Edgar Allen Poe.  The comic is full of romantic misadventures, visitors from outer space, and the emissaries of Hell, who want Poe to come back.  It reminds me of the 1980s indie comic The Trouble with Girls mixed with the tone of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Loading Artist by Gregor Czaykowski

Loading artist is a simple gag strip, without a continuing story.  I say that it’s simple, but it’s also very well done.  The jokes are actually funny,  and the art and color are appealing.  My favorite thing is the that the jokes are neither too vanilla or too full of the self-conscious crassness that the internet seems to love so much.  check it out.
