Anyone on the street will tell you that “comics” mean “superhero comics.” With the rise of Batman, Captain America and the Avengers from the back of the dingily-lit comic store, to the summer blockbuster every year (forever) that person on the street might even be able to tell you everything about their favourite Hero, without ever having seen a comic book.
Come, converse with us about all things webcomics (and a few that aren’t)! Jason looks back on a recent JL8 story and sings the praises of Frank and Becky’s latest triumph, Bustletown, while Steve recalls the beautiful world of Scurry and the often humorously dark Things in Squares.

Tauhid Bondia (Goodship Chronicles, Epicsplosion) is working up something new, JL8 is leaving Steve wanting more, Broodhollow‘s 3rd season is off to a … start? And we bid adieu to the melancholy that was A Softer World. It’s raining outside, so let’s stay in and read some comics, okay?
