The weekend is here! Take a look back at what’s happened in the past seven days. New comics, new stories, new podcasts, new art being made — it’s all part of the ComicsAlliance Weekender!
If the dream of the '90s is alive in Portland, then the decade's nightmare is alive in Drugs & Wires' cyberpunk post-Soviet eastern Europe. Cryoclaire and Io Black's webcomic envisions a futuristic 1995 where virtual reality and cyborgs are as fashionable as JNCO jeans. Unfortunately, that future kind of sucks. Especially for Dan, the comic's battered and weary protagonist.
ComicsAlliance spoke with Cryoclaire and Io Black about the comic's unique setting, and its eclectic fashion and black humor.
What if you were a big deal at your high school, but haunted by something you did as a kid? And what if you were a kid nobody noticed, but haunted by actual ghosts? And what if those two people were meant to be together? That's the story that drives the Korean webtoon Oh Holy.
In Starfighter by HamletMachine, two young men are thrust into the inky blackness of space, forced to work together to pilot their ship against the enemy and make it out alive. They couldn’t have less in common at first --- but things heat up very quickly between them…
Oh Joy Sex Toy began in 2013 with a simple comic reviewing one of the most popular sex toys out there -- the Magic Wand Original, a vibrator of much renown. From there, the comic has spiraled out to cover every subject related to sex in a joyful, informative, and very funny manner.
Ordinary blue-collar worker concerns may include low minimum wages or job automation. Repairman Logan Ibarra's concerns, however, aren't as ordinary; he just want to escape his night's last assignment without getting beheaded, assaulted by flowery parasites, or stabbed (any further).
With nearly two years into its run, Tessa Stone's horror-comedy webcomic Not Drunk Enough is now set to be published as a trilogy by Oni Press. ComicsAlliance sat down with Stone to talk about Not Drunk Enough, claustrophobia, and the debatable merits of actually being drunk during a horror scenario.
Imagine Pride and Prejudice, only Darcy is a handsome young doctor, and Elizabeth Bennett is the daughter of anthropologists who grew up in the rainforest, only just now returning to “civilization.” Fighting with propriety and their own feelings, the protagonists of Miss Abbott And The Doctor must learn that maybe the other isn’t so bad. Maybe they’re actually kind of cute.
Fighting is often an expression of love. It means defending and protecting and sacrificing for what matters most: your home, your family, your right to love, your right to exist. It means enduring adversity for what matters.
The Order of Belfry is a webcomic about an order of female knights who protect their kingdom and defend what they love — which often happens to be one another. It is through this knight's order that creators Barbara Perez and M.J. Barros create their own space, one that's inclusive and centered on queer relationships, that also fights for love. Webcomic Q&A spoke with Perez and Barros to learn more.
With Should I Be Reading… ?, ComicsAlliance hopes to offer you a guide to some of the best original ongoing comics being published today.
What would you do to achieve your dreams? For the Rock Cocks, the answer is anything --- so long as they’re together.
I don't know what we as a people have done right to deserve this, but we are currently living in a time of unprecedented Tom Scioli content. Not only is he doing his incredible, offbeat take on Super Powers as a backup in DC's Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye, and not only is he doing a one-shot adaptation of the movie based on his epic, thirteen-issue Transformers vs. GI Joe --- a movie that does not, in fact, exist --- but now, he's launching a brand-new webcomic, too.
It's called Princess, and it debuted today with an amazing page of hard-hitting, space-faring action.
