In celebration of Mar10 (Mario Day!), we took a look at the Mario-like hop.dude by Dave Mercier. It’s … weird, and subversive, with characters you know and love from the world of Nintendo, but who you’ve never actually truly met. There’s no real way to describe this comic, so go view it on Instagram and judge for yourself.
Aristocracy! Pirates! Anime eyes! Crossdressing! If you want all of those things and more in your webcomics, you can’t miss Tiger, Tiger, a Gilbert and Sullivan-like romp in the confines of your browser, written and drawn by Petra Nordlund.
This week, we begin our look at Oddity Woods, a cute, creepy comic that harkens back to the best parts of comics like Broodhollow and The Last Halloween in giving us quirky, fun characters and pants-wettingly scary creatures with a story that you’re sure to root for. The second part of our review will post next week. Enjoy!
It’s possible that The Abominable Charles Christopher, an outstanding, quiet look at the animal world by Karl Kerschl, is back and that’s all Steve needs to believe in good things again. The guys also delve into the magical world of Judy Jong’s Cut Time, where we follow the adventures of Rel, Sol, and Nal. It’s much more exciting than it sounds, trust us.
There were so many great comics in 2018 that we couldn’t keep up with them all! So we’re using the early days and months of 2019 to get caught up, this time checking out the second season of Nothing Special by Katie Cook. What fun and danger have Callie, Declan, and the rest of the gang gotten into since last time? We’re telling you explicitly that in this episode, but you really should check it out for yourself, too.
We’re getting rolling in the new year with a longer look at a comic we first discovered last year, The 3 Pilgrims by Trevor Downs. It’s very reserved and sparse in its presentation, but the mystery and adventure it presents are well worth joining the three pilgrims on their journey.
Another year of Digital Strips is in the books, but before we move on, we’re taking time to remember our favorite comics from the episodes we recorded in 2018. What comics are we keeping up with? What are some stories we’d like to catch up on? We’ve got loads of comics to talk about, so dig in and see what you might have missed this past year.
Robin Kaplan’s Ushala at World’s End is a comic worth looking at … again. The work has expanded since last we saw this exceptional comic, in some ways that we never would have foreseen. Follow the sherp and don’t miss out on this story!
