Comics I enjoy

Most of the comics in my reading list are geared towards adult audiences and contain mature content. Please click at your own discretion.

A comic by Tiffany Ross that I sometimes work on as a colourist. She describes it as ‘Bambi with carnivores.’ It follows various winged raptors called shivae as they fight for survival in a rapidly changing world.

A long-running comic by Alex Kolesar and Joe Kovell that is a must-read for any shounen anime fan. Our action-packed story takes place in feudal Japan, though it is by no means historical. It is, however, absolutely hysterical. A mixture of absurd, awesome, and laugh-out-loud moments captioned with outrageous sound effects makes for one thrilling samurai comic. Orryah!

A breathtaking comic by Keiii, where every panel is a jaw-dropping work of art. Ethan, a huge, brawny teen with a broken heart of gold is suddenly transported to another world one evening. This world, which resembles a feudal Korea (albeit one with magic), is no stranger to sudden visitors from other worlds- in fact, it happens quite regularly. The only problem is, it will be at least a year before Ethan has a way back home. It’s a good thing he knows some Korean!

A beautiful graphic novel by Chikuto, set in a steampunk world on the brink of war, where magic is feared above all else. Bright, lively art and instantly endearing characters bring vivid life to a story about Cog Kleinschmidt, a boy with an uncanny talent for repairing watches. He’s a nobody, but finds himself swept into the turbulent world of politics, even though he insists that all of the events turning the landscape of his world ‘Have nothing to do with me.’

A beautiful sci-fi graphic novel (with a very unique viewing format) by Michelle CzajKowski. Ava is being haunted by a demon. It makes her say horrible things, and everyone (herself included) thinks she’s crazy. But when the ship she’s on crashes and she dies, Ava finds her ‘demon’ is not just a manifestation of her mental illness. It could save her… if she’s willing to make a pact. Is her life really worth making a deal with a demon?

A dark sci-fi by Melinda Timpone. Earth is left in ruins after an alien invasion. The aliens are long gone, but they left the world poisoned in their wake. A mysterious organisation is now expanding on the aliens’ dark experiments with human beings. Wren is a boy with incredible power, tortured by a past half forgotten, struggling to find where he came from while being relentlessly hunted. He is just one of the victims of these horrific experiments, and his own uncontrollable power terrifies him. (Inactive)

A post-apocalyptic romance by Erli and Kromi. The world has been ravaged by undead hordes and only the strongest survive, and most stay in the safe zones that still offer some semblance of civilisation. A group of people come together by chance, all of them roaming the wilds for their own reasons. There’s not much left to live for in this world, except for hope and each other.

A lovely fantasy by Meg Syverud and Jessica Weaver. A band of quirky mercenaries led by the orc Orrig are just trying to make a living, but the life of swords-for-hire is never easy. Especially for their mage, Thistle. She always has to hide her face because when people see her, well… let’s just say it never goes well. She hates hiding, but more than that, she hates people being afraid of her. She has a unique talent for growing flowers with her magic, and is a gentle soul.

A trilogy of graphic novels by Samantha Whitten and Stacey Pefferkorn. A young wolf-girl named Meela is on her own after her family was murdered. She has no idea how to take care of herself. Luckily (?) she runs into a bounty hunter named Feral and decides to tag along. (Completed)

A gorgeously painted graphic novel by Michael Sexton about a world of ocean where humanity lives scattered across the small islands dotting the seas. Join Luna and Ten in a cute puppy-love romance and high-seas adventure as they journey out into a dangerous world.

A stunningly drawn graphic novel by Anna Podedworna, Kate Redesiuk, and Aleksandra Wojtas. A pack of wolves carry a secret; one of their number may be they key to avoiding Ragnarok. If only they could get him to where he needs to go… without him screwing it all up first. (Inactive)

A richly written and beautifully drawn graphic novel by Der-shing Helmer. A young girl named Angora is sent on a mysterious mission by her ‘grandfather’ with nothing but a few cryptic clues to guide her. And she doesn’t seem to understand why not wearing any clothes is considered a bad thing to most people.

A vividly written graphic novel by Pascalle Lepas. A young man named Oscar Wilde moves into a house he rented off Craigslist in the rural town of Podunk, Oklahoma. He moved very spur of the moment- he just had to flee his demons back home in Chicago- and didn’t put much thought into where he ended up. Little does he know that his new town is kind of unnatural. One might almost say… SUPERnatural.

An astoundingly detailed graphic novel by Tracy J. Butler. It’s a gritty, sepia-toned story about prohibition during the 1920s in St. Louis, Missouri. Betrayal, murder, insanity, and desperation are all acted out by adorable and expressive kitty-cats.

Awkward Zombie is a video game humour comic by Katie Tiedrich. She does one-shot funnies that point out the failings and foibles of games that she has played.

A long-running newspaper style comic strip by the Carspeckens. It follows the adventures of Randy and Cindy, a pair of red foxes who live in a barn with a plethora of other animals.

MegaTokyo is a very long-running amerimanga series by Fred Gallagher. The beginning is laugh-out-loud humour, though it slowly transitions into just drama as the story unfolds.
