Incredible Indie Tuesday: Faith and Five Word Webcomics

For a couple days at the end of last week, a neat trend took over the webcomics hashtag: creators describing their webcomics in five words. Hashtags like these have popped up on Twitter and Tumblr before, and are a fun way to promote webcomics and independent creators, even though boiling a digital epic down to fewer words than your average sentence can be a challenge. This might not be anything new, but it presents us with the opportunity to play a fun game of Guess the Webcomic! All answers will be posted at the end. For bonus points, describe...

Incredible Indie Tuesday: Superhero Webcomics to Read Instead of Watching Batman V Superman

Last week, the latest installment in DC’s film universe hit cinema screens. And it was…not good. If you love superheroes but are looking for better ways to spend your time, try one of these webcomics instead.

With powers like super strength and jumping really high, she battles ninjas, skeptical fanboys, and mask tan lines. Though it ended in 2012, there is a full color collection available to buy.

Incredible Indie Tuesday: Vacation Reading

I spent last week visiting family in Florida, which meant I spent less time interacting with the comics community and more time actually reading books and comics.

Instead, I have been reading it exclusively in trades, which...

Horror shows for kids are a rarity and you’re very lucky to come across one of these gems. Horror shows are often to be thought of as “inappropriate” for kids. There are a couple of different reasons for this, but we can narrow it down to one fundamental reason: they’re just too scary.  But… Isn’t that what you want?  As a kid, and even as an adult, don’t we want the scary? Don’t we crave a fictional world of the weird, the wonderful, the horrible and the oh so strange? The campfire tales and the beautiful worlds that won’t let us...

Incredible Indie Tuesday: Crossover to the Max!

I’ve been a fan of Lumberjanes from the start. A ragtag group of queer ladies kicking supernatural butt? In a comic for kids? Yes, please! Since its launch in 2015, it has become one of my favorite comics. If I’m being honest, it’s what really drew my attention to Boom! Studios in the first place. Which is why I was super pumped to hear last Tuesday that Boom! has chosen our favorite hardcore lady-types for the publisher’s first ever crossover event with – wait for it – DC’s Gotham Academy.  The six issue limited series will hit comic shop shelves in June, and...
