Welcome to the first episode of ComicsAlliance Presents Kate or Die, a new series of exclusive comic strips created by one of our longtime favorite webcomics cartoonists, Kate Leth!
Also a contributor to BOOM! Studios' Adventure Time line, IDW's Locke & Key and Image's The Strange Talent of Luthor Strode, Kate's self-published work, seen on Tumblr and comic cons and elsewhere, has earned her a dedicated following for its idiosyncratic blend of adorable irreverence and brutal honesty (often equally adorable) toward topics of all kinds, from dating to depression to Doctor Who. For ComicsAlliance, Kate or Die will focus mainly on the sort of subject matter you've come to expect from the site, but you should also anticipate Kate taking the strip to some unpredictably cool places.
In this episode, Kate takes on a topic that the forces of creepery will never lay to rest: cosplay and consent.

We've spotlighted the French cartoonist before here at ComicsAlliance, but every time we think we've seen the most amazing thing he's done, he comes up with something new that's just as jaw-dropping as ever -- and his latest, The Long Journey is good enough that unless you're, I don't know, performing surgery, you should probably go ahead and drop whatever you're doing and read it right now.

And just how do you improve Hamlet? Easy.

I talked to North about his approach to the book, why he wanted to try his hand at a chooseable-path adventure, and why he gave Ophelia a bonus to science.
Jeff Smith fans got two big presents at this weekend's WonderCon: The first is news that IDW is set to release a new Artist's Edition collection of Bone this fall. The second? Smith's working on a brand new webcomic set in prehistoric times, titled Tüki Save the Humans.
