Do you like bears? Do you like Russian bears? Do you like washed-up mercenaries fighting bears? And most importantly, do you like hats? If you said yes to any of those, you should probably check out the third installment of the Team Fortress 2 web comic. This bi-monthly comic… er, tri-monthly… actually, it’s been almost four months since the last one. Let’s just Valve Time applies to their comics too. Still, they’re definitely worth the wait, and add a lot of hilarious backstory to the Team Fortress universe. Check out parts 1 and 2 here, then jump into the latest one. Lastly, Valve also announced they’re making a moon base level for TF2. Just thought you should know. Because that’s awesome. Read more…

Broodhollow Webcomic Launches Kickstarter For First Book

Posted by Bob Muir on Jul 16, 2013 in Comic Books

Broodhollow

If you’re into webcomics, you may have heard of Kris Straub. The man has been working in webcomics for years, with one of his earliest projects being Checkerboard Nightmare, a meta-commentary on webcomics. Chainsawsuit is a near-daily loose parody of poorly drawn gag-a-day comics, and last year he wrapped up his seven-year sci-fi comic Starslip. But his latest project, in my opinion, is his finest work yet, easily surpassing anything else he’s done. Starting last year, Broodhollow is a story of a neurotic encyclopedia salesman traveling to a quaint town to receive the inheritance of a distant relative. Soon, he is begins to uncover dark secrets after strange events occur around him. As Straub puts it, it’s “Tintin goes to Innsmouth,” referencing both the adventure comic series by Herge and H.P. Lovecraft’s quiet town with sinister secrets in the Cthulhu Mythos. Read more…

TrekMovie Premieres TNG Webcomic

The Outer Light preview image

If there had ever been an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation that deserved a sequel, Morgan Gendel’s “The Inner Light” would be at the top of the list. Over the course of its seven seasons, we were treated to several such episodes, almost all of which served as a season finale. Instead, the studio felt single episodes would befit the series’ syndicated format. While it’s a shame we never had a chance to revisit any of our favorite plots while the series was airing, Gendel recently decided to pen a sequel to published online as a series of webcomics.

As a retro anime fanboy my heart warmed up when I came across the table of Tara Tallan at the New York Comic Con — her webcomic Galaxion is very inspired by Star Blazers which happens to be one of my favorite shows in the universe. Unlike most science fiction stories this manga isn’t dark and gritty, if you love indie comics you can show Tara your support by buying the first two volumes of the series: Read more…

Oscarina: A Sweet Scathing Comic Critque of Grownups

Posted by Michael Pinto on May 9, 2011 in Comic Books

oscarina by carolita johnson

I’ve been following a new web comic by Carolita Johnson named Oscarina. The one panel cartoons feature the precocious young lady who’s on a mission to showcase the hypocrisy of adults with cunning comments on everything from allergies to religion. Over the past few years Carolita Johnson has done some amazing work for New Yorker magazine, but what I really love about this strip is that she’s focusing on a single character who has a very strong voice.

Kirk’s Finally Met His Match; a Seventeen Year-Old Girl

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Aug 25, 2010 in Comic Books, Star Trek

Ensign Sue Must Die 

Have you ever wondered what Kirk would have done if he was stuck with Wesley Crusher? Actually, we already know the answer. All kidding aside though, Pot Luck Comics’ webcomic parody “Ensign Sue Must Die!” shows us just what happens when a seventeen year-old girl joins the crew of the Enterprise. While it has its fair share of cuteness, they’ve tossed in enough fan service to make it worthwhile for anyone who loved the original series, or Abram’s recent reboot. The strip has already finished its run, but you can still view all 32 strips online, or sport $6 for a printed copy via Interrobang.

Everyone loves Creative Commons-shareable webcomic XKCD, whether they’re geeks, nerds, or pretending to be one of them because they acknowledge that geeks and nerds now rule the earth. My personal favorite category of strips, however, are the pranks that the nameless characters of XKCD conduct upon an unsuspecting public. Here are five of the best prank strips. Read more…
