Previously on Comics: Webcomic to Netflix, March to Awards

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s pretty darn cold. I’ve been keeping out of the Chicago winter with some warm comics reading, and I encourage you to do the same! Here’s what’s good, what’s bad, and what’s just comics:

Love Alarm

I, like everyone else with an ounce of free time and access to the internet, am a huge fan of Netflix, particularly their original series. While there are so many great things coming up, webcomic fans have a show that will especially please them. Love Alarm will be Netflix’s first original Korean drama, and it’s based on the webcomic by the same name. 

Love Alarm is written and drawn by Chon Kye-Young and tells the story of a software developer who creates an app that tells the user if anyone in a close radius has a crush on them. The Netflix series will be live action and you can binge it in 2018.


March by John Lewis, a Georgia Congressman, tells the story tells the story of the American civil rights movement in three volumes. It’s also the first graphic novel to ever win a National Book Award. The story is told from the point of view of Lewis himself, who was helped by an artist and a writer in creating the comic.


“Transrealities, a sci-fi superhero trans comic from trans writer Abigail Brady and Double D’s artist Steven Horry debuted a small print run at Thought Bubble last year.” Now you don’t have to be one of the lucky few who got their hands on the hard copies of the comic, it’s available in full color on Comixology. Only the first of five issues is out so far, but it’s already receiving positive reviews from big names in the industry. The story is about a trans superhero who is forced to confront her past.
