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]
Collecting Superman is my archive of Superman-related merchandise and toys, domestic and international, from the 40s to the present. Updated frequently!
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. The first arc, entitled Wander: Olive Hopkins and the Ninth Kingdom explores what happens when a thoroughly modern 20-something finds herself plunged into a fantasy world straight out that section of Barnes & Noble she always avoided. A strip explaining the concept for the first arc is available here and there's also an eight-page preview of our first issue on the Monkeybrain site. 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]
This is a comic I made Detailing the ACA and Obama's health care reform. It is part of a larger series of news related comics I am working on in the style of the Strand Bookstore Labor Dispute Comics, previously featured on Metafilter in April, which can be read here: strandaskus.blogspot.com
A blog that attempts to mix original animation, writing, illustration and comics. We're a two person team and recently finished a setup stage that will hopefully allow us to post some varied and interesting content.
is my latest comic venture. An existential horror-comedy set in northern Minnesota on the shores of Lake Superior, it just wrapped its first storyline, which features a gang of foul-mouthed ghost sailors.
This is the official site for the continuous comic strip updates regarding the ongoing strand labor dispute by cartoonist Greg Farrell. Site also features employee testimonials, all updated about once a week.
After years of mulling around a comic w/a character I made in 7th grade, I finally 20+ years later have started an online comic about him. Meet Zany Guy. A perma-grinning, perma-tripping psychedelic "hero". [more inside]
A friend's been posting about "Speak Like Thou Wert Ye Odinson Day" on Jack Kirby's birthday for the past few years. This year I decided to celebrate it too.
if you like your adventure stories light-hearted, your action historical, and your comics colourfully-illustrated, you may very well enjoy Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant. Updated on Saturday mornings with four to six new pages. [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. The story was scripted by me from a David Attenborough radio programme about some bizarre and violent insect breeding strategies. Fratricide, cannibalism, identity theft, addiction, slavery and hundreds of dead babies: this one's got it all! [more inside]
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.

Breaking my years of MeFi silence (but I've been lurking all along!), here's a photocomic made up of conversations added to my own photographs. I'm making some efforts in my life to be less neurotic about certain things, and I'm in hopes that sharing these photos and dialogues with y'all will not only entertain a little, but also help me stop being such a hermit and maybe deal with some Stuff.

In the world of superhero comics, everyone is suing everyone else. Relatives of Jerry Siegel (the writer who created Superman) recently won a historic court victory giving them 50% of the copyright in Supie's first appearance. Relatives of Joe Shuster (Siegel's artist partner) are suing for the remaining 50% now. Meanwhile, relatives of Jack Kirby, Marvel Comics' most important founding artist, are using the same lawyer to challenge Marvel over characters like Spider-Man, Iron Man and Thor. Stan Lee, who worked with Kirby in creating all those characters, won his own lucrative victory against the company in 2005. And we've seen other comic book lawsuits from Steve Gerber (over Howard the Duck), Dan DeCarlo (Josie & the Pussycats), Marv Wolfman (Blade), Carmine Infantino (The Flash) and Gary Friedrich (Ghost Rider). It's partly Hollywood money that explains this rash of lawsuits, and partly a quirk of US law which is only now putting all the most valuable superhero characters up for grabs.

I'm drawing a page of comics once a day for the rest of the year. Most of them so far are autobiographical—things that have happened to me on that particular day. They're somewhat crude, but the quality is guaranteed to improve. They're also viewable as this Flickr set. Comics are usually posted late in the day, because I don't manage my time well.
