Webcomic of the week: Hark! A Vagrant

It hath been many moons since I last posted.  Verily I am back, full in force and bearing strange humor!

Incidentally, it’s well past time for another Webcomic of the week!  And if you’re wondering why I was talking like that, it’s merely in celebration of this week’s webcomic flavor, Hark! A Vagrant.  For the record, I’m going to look up those letters James Joyce wrote to what’s-her-name. Continue reading

Webcomic of the week: Derelict

It’s time for another Webcomic of the Week post!  Now, I realize that these have by no means followed a strict weekly schedule, for which I apologize.  And that may or may not change.  SO…I felt like I owed it to you Nerds (with a capital N)–and myself–to find a doozie this time around.  And I think I did.

Webcomic of the week: The Path

This one’s got me intrigued, although I’ve yet to get current and see where the story goes.  From what I’ve seen of The Path, it already has a little of all my favorite ingredients; it’s a bit Arthurian, a bit Lovecraftian, and I think there’s even some of Mike Mignola’s artistic influence in the pen and ink. That’s a beautiful combination, if I do say so myself (queue Julie Andrews’ “Favorite Things” song).

Webcomic of the week: Space-Mullet!

It’s time for something a little more sprawling (and sci-fi!).  Not since Broodhollow has a Webcomic of the Week been a “long” story, and thankfully, this one still has miles to go by the looks of things.  PS and HOLY CRAP, Daniel Warren Johnson’s Space-Mullet! is a good one.  Here’s a spoiler-free intro for you to get started…and you really should.

Webcomic of the week: Alive, Alive, Alive!

This week’s webcomic is a short one (even for a lot of webcomics).  In fact, it was initially part of a 24-hour webcomic challenge–extended to 42 hours.  Apparently illustrator Mark Simmons couldn’t fit all the awesome that script writer Julie Davis put into the story in just a day, so I don’t blame him.

By the way, I couldn’t find a link to Julie’s website or other materials, which I will remedy as soon as I find something.  Sorry Julie!

Webcomic of the week: Sarah and the Seed

This week’s webcomic is an oldie but a goodie.  Sarah and the Seed is one of my favorites, and one I’ve read many, many times.  Ryan Andrews, creator of this and several other wonderful stories, has a knack for pulling the joys, pains and pressures of real life into his comics, in both art and message.   Continue reading
