This is a review of a comic that almost didn’t get written. This comic is called Blomix and it covers the daily adventures of a Peace Corp volunteer. As it turns out, there are many troubles and trials these folks go through. This being a form of diary comic, I found it very interesting to […]

We’re just going to look at a few of the updates from The Daily Sketch by Jason Luper and Stark White Studios. (I suspect these are not, in fact, daily updates but let’s play along. The last update on the Facebook page was from 2012.) The first is this one, which is a little touchy-feely […]

Comic lovers, I recently received some comic news about Sandra and Woo’s milestone and it’s worth taking notice about. Here is the text: “On 19 October 2013, our comedy webcomic Sandra and Woo (http://www.sandraandwoo.com/) will celebrate its fifth birthday. The comic strip features the 12-year-old girl Sandra North, her mischievous pet raccoon Woo, and their […]

My first comic work, the Frog Pond, was destined not to be a commercial success right out of the box. My experience is what you would call “typical” but I’ve always wanted to know why it wasn’t working conceptually. A comic’s concept may or may not be possible to rework, but how to know what […]

What Did I Learn? I glanced at the latest Vorto the Pirate comic by Martin Pope, was intrigued enough to visit the various information pages and when I saw the promotional piece, I knew just had to read this comic. It has a Flash Gordon vibe for me, which I’m translating as being almost as […]

What Did I Learn? Today’s comic under review is Joe! by Michelle Billingsley. The About page informs us that this comic is based on Joe, a wise cracking ten year old getting into trouble based on “imaginatively-exploited everyday shorelines,” which is pretty accurate up to the current comic of #112. However, the rest of the […]

I do, believe it or not, have a review almost ready to post. In the meantime, I have been contacted by some folks for promotional items related to my other work but I thought some of you might be able to make use of what they offer. Here’s a pic they sent me… now imagine […]

A week or so ago, I received a missive from Ucreate Comics, which is aiming to be a new Comic Book Developing company. From the look of things on their website, they seem like they are doing something Zuda-ish. Their official web-site is planned for launch on March 11th at www.ucreatecomics.com where members will have […]

In order to be timely with this news at all, you need to just take a look at this: This is just one of Grimm’s fairy tales that Gina Biggs, Elle Skinner and Louisa Roy have adapted and illustrated for us. It’s called “A Tale with A Riddle.” It’s a story full of suspense about […]

I think you all might like this. The previews look interesting… What if the greatest heroes on earth were teamed up to take on the world’s biggest threats? Or at least whoever was available was thrown together to deal with some shizzle? In their Avengers-parodying debut, the mysterious WHITE OUT has brought together a dysfunctional […]

This is a copy of the review I did, minus the star rating and with a few edits, for Comic Fencing back as far as 2008, which seems to have gone offline sometime in the last few months. Calamities of Nature, by Tony Piro, is about the absurdities of life and ourselves. Politics, world events […]
