5 Recommended Webcomics
“Some dead men tell tales, and some little girls have tails…
Daughter of the Lord of Thieves, Sette Frummagem is on a mission, and she’ll lie, cheat, and steal to make sure it’s a success (she’ll lie, cheat, and steal anyway). Condemned to aid her in her rotten endeavours is a rotten corpse who seems oddly talented with the supernatural, and oddly not laying motionless in the dirt.
The road is long and no one is what they seem. Never trust a thief, and never trust anyone who won’t let you look into their eyes.”
Unsounded by Ashley Cope is what got me into the webcomic world. It’s a fabulous story with a thousand plot twists and fantastic artwork. Cope is very professional and is always consistent with her updating schedule. This is one of those comics that you could read over and over again and learn new information each time. I would highly recommend this comic. Please bear in mind, however, that it does contain quite a lot of violence and gore.
“Leftovers examines the lives of 4 childhood friends as they struggle to overcome love, loss, and the overwhelming need to find their place in the world.”
Leftovers by Moose is an adorable comic that tugs at your heartstrings. I originally stumbled across this comic on Tapastic, but when they decided to move to a new location, I had to follow along. It is a fantastically well-written story so far, and I can only imagine the laughter and tears that it will bring as it continues to develop. This is a comic that anyone could enjoy.
“Lost Nightmare is a little comic about the young nightmare Ink who is supposed to be the next Bogeyman. However, Ink does not want to be scary so he seeks the Sandman’s help.”
Lost Nightmare by Julia K is another comic that has an adorable vibe to it. The art style is very unique, capturing a mystical (or whimsical) rendition of classic fairy tale characters. I’ve been following this comic off and on since its debut on Inkblazers. It is now located on its own site which I happily stumbled upon via Hiveworks a few months ago. This is another comic that I would recommend to any and all ages.
“In a post apocalyptic future, a young assassin with extraordinary abilities awakens with amnesia, finding himself in the middle of a global conflict.”
R: Il Persona by Starlight City Pro is an action-packed stunner. This is one of those comics that deserves more attention than it is currently receiving, and gives off a highly professional vibe. If you like dramatic action scenes and a classic comic book feel, then I would definitely recommend picking up this webcomic. Please keep in mind that the action scenes do not hold back on violence and gore.
“Tistow is a fallen city hustling through industrial revolution. Life at the busy docks under martial law is hard and with few rewards.
In order to scrape together enough coin to eat, Jack and Omar resort to working in a rather dubious trade involving bootlegged goods, extortion and larceny.
The underbelly of Tistow opens up great many opportunities for those with grey morals and quick fingers…”
Tistow by Elli Puukangas is on this list for a number of reasons. Although the artwork is to die for, the main reason I would recommend this comic is the highly unique concept. This is another webcomic that is extraordinarily professional in its mannerisms and is definitely something that you would be able to pick up off a shelf and buy. Another great read for anyone to start (it can also be found on Tapastic).
