If there's one thing we've learned from our years on the Internet, it's that there's no aspect of comics that can't be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there's no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we're taking it upon ourselves to compile lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
This week, we're heading away from the Big Two for a look at some of the scariest bad guys from the world of indie comics. The catch? We're also staying away from horror comics, just to make things a little more interesting!
When it comes to the holiday gift-giving season, comic book readers are notoriously difficult to shop for. I mean, most of us are down at the shop buying our favorite stuff every single week, so when the time comes for people who like us to get us something we want, well, a lot of times we already have it. That’s why we’re stepping in with a public service, bringing you comics-related items sure to make the season brighter, whether you’re browsing for a gift or just looking for something to drop hints about so that you don’t get stuck with a random assortment of back issues again.

It's been less than a week since creator Chris Onstad posted short teaser footage of a possible Achewood animated series went up, but YouTube user benhet has apparently already posted five full minutes (with voices included!) of animation that seems to synch up with the initial teaser video. Hit the jump to see (and hear)
Achewood, Chris Onstad's frequently hilarious and just as frequently terrifying surrealist webcomic, has been on an indefinite hiatus for almost a full year now, following an earlier hiatus through much of 2011. Thankfully for fans, Onstad has announced on his personal blog that he has been working with a
It's no secret that newspapers in print aren't doing so hot these days, a fact that has put the hundred year tradition of comic strips (plus Sudoku and the Junior Jumble) in danger. For some strips, the cold embrace of oblivion w
Last weekend, I joined the rest of America in going to see The Hunger Games. I haven't read the original novel, but I have to say that I really enjoyed the movie. The plot was compelling, the characters were engaging, and the setting had a great visual aesthetic that made it a really enjoyable film to watch. I've heard a lot of comp
If you're like me, in that you love both Achewood and delicious food, we have some good news for you: The Portland Mercury has announced that Achewood creator Chris Onstad will be taking over as their re
For some, Chris Onstad's Achewood has always been a bit of an odd duck. A webcomic starring a series of quirky anthropomorphic characters based on stuffed animals, Achewood has been a hilarious and often surreal journey with a cast of characters that includes depressed cats, painfully earnest otters and coke-addled squirrels. At least until March 2011, when Onstad announced that he was going on indefinite hiatus from the strip afte
As we move into the second installment of our weekly webcomic round-ups, I want to thank everyone for their suggestions, and to keep things as transparent as possible, mention a few things about how comics are included in each week's list.
