Body And Soul: Should You Be Reading ‘Always Human’?

PrideWeek-AlwaysHuman

When you look at the sheer range and number of original stories being told in comics form today, it’s hard to imagine a better time to be a comics reader. Online and in print, from all around the world, artists and writers are telling stories with their own voices and styles, and there’s so much to choose from that it’s sometimes difficult to know what to read next. With Should I Be Reading… ?, ComicsAlliance hopes to offer you a guide to some of the best original ongoing comics being published today.

Imagine a future in which you could easily modify anything you wanted about your body. You could have feathers instead of hair, give yourself wings, enhance your memory, stop sweating in the summer. Imagine a world in which this is totally normal, and you could purchase body modifications as easily as you can grab a cup of coffee. Now imagine that you live in this world where everyone else can get mods, but you can’t. Welcome to Austen’s life.

Dave Sim’s Cerebus Returns In New Miniseries ‘Cerebus In Hell’

Cerberus-Featured

Dave Sim's iconic and often controversial self-published epic Cerebus was a testament to the creator's determination, and proof that a black-and-white independently published satire about an aardvark could span three decades and three hundred issues. The series finished in 2004, seemingly never to return --- but Sim has now announced a brand new collage comic, Cerebus In Hell, due for publication later this year.

Lost in Transition: ‘Cucumber Quest,’ Rosemaster, and the Making of a Transgender Villain

lostintransition-cucumberqu

But sometimes a comic conquers these obstacles, finds an audience, excels at its craft on every level, has wonderful characters, and in the process showcases how to navigate that sticky quandary of how to write a marginalized character as a villain. The webcomic Cucumber Quest by Gigi D.G. is just such a series. There will be spoilers for the third chapter and third interlude, if you haven’t read them.

Abby Howard Invites Her Unsuspecting Readers to ‘The Last Halloween’ [Back Pages]

lh1

Abby Howard's The Last Halloween is a distinctively-drawn webcomic; one that seems childlike, but has this increasing undercurrent of creepy tension and unpredictable weirdness flowing through each extended sequence. Through stark inks and bold panel layouts, Howard is able to convey silliness as powerfully as she can convey real horror, and the result is a singular piece of work that resonates in genuinely unnerving ways.

It's certainly found an audience --- having just launched a Kickstarter to bring the first volume of her series to print, Howard has already sailed beyond the initial funding target. ComicsAlliance spoke to her about how it came about.

Windows Update: A Short History of Dagger’s Implausible Costume

dagger_featured

Cartoonist Kate Beaton, in her always insightful webcomic Hark, a Vagrant, recently published a page of comics about Marvel's Cloak and Dagger, and specifically about the obvious problems with the dagger-shaped cut-out in Dagger's costume. You should read the whole thing, much of which we can't post here because of the cartoon nipples.

Obviously Dagger's look is coming under increased scrutiny because a Cloak and Dagger television series is on its way to the Freeform Network. It says a lot about the weird standards of superhero comics that we don't even have to wonder if Dagger will be dressed similarly on television; there's simply no way the TV show will use the same costume. A plunging dagger-shaped cut-out that reveals cleavage and navel simply isn't something a television superhero might wear. But in comics, it's a costume that can last for thirty years.
