As this comment went over well, I decided to make a longer, annotated list of women in comics, worldwide. Though I started with comics I like, I did some research to find stuff I didn't know about, and I'd love to hear suggestions for more. There are currently about 220 entries. [more inside]
Bullies? Drugs? Puberty? Some topics are important to talk about but hard to bring up. For the past six years, I've been making comics for my niece to start conversations on tough subjects and soften harsh truths with cartoons. Now they're finally ready to share. Behold my total lack of qualifications. Appreciate the editing of Consultant Kristine Chester. Read the comics online or order hard copies for giving, sharing, and adding your own notes. No matter what, get motivated to break the ice with a kid you love. The only wrong way to talk about these things is not to talk about them at all.
In this gorgeously illustrated, full-color graphic memoir, Stan Lee—comic book legend and co-creator of Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Avengers, the Incredible Hulk, and a legion of other Marvel superheroes—shares his iconic legacy and the story of how modern comics came to be.

I've been drawing and posting comics for a while, and I finally had enough decent material to make a book out of it. It's 26 pages worth of autobiography, dreams, and musings on the culture I live in. You can download the book (a pdf) for a buck fifty from my Gumroad page, or you can go to my Tumblr and poke around in my archive to see most of the stories included.
Sure, Lego has some Marvel minifigs mainly those from the movies. But what if you wanted minifigs of every character ever represented in Marvel comics.

I'm going to be exhibiting at Small Press Expo this year. I'm bringing the SF/F YA comics I've written, and I'm looking for other people who write or draw standalone SF/F YA comics whose work I can include at my table. Towards that end: Tesseract Comics, which will be functioning as, essentially, a zine distro for YA speculative fiction in comics form. [more inside]

Hi, folks! I am Dale Lazarov and I write and edit gay erotic comics drawn by distinctive and evocative illustrators like Steve MacIsaac, Drub and Chas Hunter, among others. Our smart, wholesome gay comics smut is full of man-on-man carnality and sweetness. They don't have dialogue or captions so they don't require translation; just your horniness! ;-D As you may know, I have published four hardcovers of gay erotic comics published and distributed internationally by Bruno Gmünder Verlag. Now we're selling both original-to-digital and digital-reprint homoerotic comics in PDF format directly to readers online using Selz, an Australian payment processor that's committed to distributing our art online for purchase and download. As you can imagine, direct digital sales to readers through the internet allows us to circumvent censorious apps and unadventurous bookstores. Also, we both keep more money from your purchase and drastically lower the price of the comics to prices competitive with mainstream comics. So go buy some now! Purchase and download at http://dalelazarov.selz.com/ ; NSFW page samples are available at http://www.dalelazarov.com/ [more inside]
Exploring strange byways of horror with author Max Sparber. I look at horror-themed art, cult films that never really found their cult audience, disquieting comics, and write two-sentence horror stories, along with a amiscellany of other oddities from the world of horror.
Since early this year, I've been writing periodically about the science and engineering details behind current and upcoming NASA missions; most recently, I've posted a 27-page comic about a trip I made to the Kennedy Space Center to watch a satellite launch. There's an enormous amount of exciting work being done right now, and I'm doing my best to give a small cross-section of it a little more attention. [more inside]

1. Everyone has stories to tell. 2. Anyone can make a comic (even if you can't draw) 3. People often surprise themselves by rising to a creative challenge. THUS: A monthly comic book (PDF) comprising comics I've solicited from friends and acquaintances. If that's not sufficient impetus to investigate, I'll add that the latest issue's theme is "Sex", and the resulting comics are appropriately NSFW.
A collaborative comic adventure, in which you are a cat. After each update, I take suggestions for what Cat should do — Investigate an object? Move into another room? Eat something off the floor? Then I read through all of the suggestions that have been submitted and select one as the basis for the next page. [more inside]

I was fortunate enough to be part of the first wave of Monkeybrain Comics' digital initative with my new monthly series Wander, featuring art by Grace Allison and letters by Josh Krach.

You can buy the 22-page comic directly from Comixology's website or through the app on your mobile device for $1.99 if if you so desire. [more inside]

Inspired by Metafilter's reaction to the reboot of the DC Universe, I've decided to spend my free braintime this summer rebooting my own version of the DC comics universe. I can't promise it will be any better than the "official" reboot. I mean, I'm no Bob Harras after all!
It's real. It's a thing. It's my webcomic, which I wisely named "Oh Shit, I'm In Grad School". I've been drawing comics as part of my grad work in Rhetoric and Writing (a subdiscipline of English that studies writing, the history of writing, the teaching of writing, writing that is awesome, and doesn't worry about literature) but they have all been photocopied print zines. As an installation I'm debuting at the Computers and Writing conference, I have started a webcomic version using Comicpress. [more inside]
PlanetSlade's latest little offering is an exclusive six-page webcomic drawn by The Squirrel Machine's Hans Rickheit.

is a new webcomic I've started. Jokes about books- so far I've done Rand, Mailer, Milton, Vidal, Thompson, and Tolkien. Lots more to come, with at least one update a week. Oh, and the "About" page features the most dignified picture of me ever taken.
I'm translating an indie comic book series with the intriguing name "Intake Tower". It's about urban exploration, military secrets, and [REDACTED]. I am requesting that people support the author by buying the comic from him, but click here before February 17. Contains risque artwork! Not suitable for people who cover Greek statues with veils!
A weekly humor webcomic I started a month ago. I can't guarantee anything, but it may have you hanging on the edge of your seat, it may reawaken your purpose in life, it may make you chortle. It's a semi-continuation of my weekly college comics (also on the site). [more inside]
Have you ever wondered "Does Batman's close cooperation with the Gotham police department make him a state actor for Fourth Amendment purposes? Is evidence that he gathers even admissible?" Well, I did. [more inside]
Just in time for Halloween, a six-page comics horror story in the tradition of EC Comics! This story is also available at Comics Alliance.
The pointless weblog is a place where I post scans of some of my old and partially forgotten things, like papercaft spaceships, 80s comic strips, top trumps, puzzles, and other nostalgic things, as well as a science fiction story my brother wrote when he was about 7, and photos of my nan growing up in pre-war france.
