I am now back able to work on getting updated on my favorite web-comics again. I have several who are no longer available. I have shared a few with you. Today I will share one that I am not updated on…but that I am slowly working through. I have to continue to clean up bookmarks, and get up to date on my favorites.
Today I want to share a comic based off of the writing of H.P. Lovecraft. You wouldn’t think that such deep philosophical writings could make anything resembling funny, but this web comic really has some great humor. Each comic has a bit of a stand alone feel, but I highly recommend going through the archives. It is very worth it.
This comic by Jeph Jacques is a near daily update. Weekdays only. It covers some tough topics with a bright sense of humor. A snarky and sarcastic vibe. I love that the characters all feel so real. He has given them flaws and personality. In the course of it’s run so far you can see growth in the main characters.
Reading this comic I have several times wanted to be in this world. I think that is the sign of a well written environment… The idea that the reader would want to climb into it and stay.
It’s been a while since I have done this, so I thought that it was time to talk about a new comic. Eventually I plan on covering all of my favorite ones. Last time I talked about Dominic Deegan. Today, I want to talk about a relatively new comic. She has been posting for a couple of years. Geekasaurus is an adorably geeky family of dinosaurs. A fun sense of humor and a very wholesome family feel to it.
The artwork is cute. The writing is inspired. I highly recommend reading through the past comics.
Ok… This is a segment that I have been considering. I used to follow hundreds of webcomics. I have gotten behind due to the small screen I am most often working with. It makes checking the pages more difficult. Add in chaos… And I am far behind. I want to change that.
Some of my favorite comics have ended. And I have been needing to update the links. I follow quite a few comic creators on social media. I find them to be fairly interesting people. Well one of my absolute favorite comics is being continued again.
The artist moved on to another comic. He has grown since the first part of his comic. I used to check in daily. He is still one of my favorite creators. His stories are amazing.
I asked if he was only going to update past the summer. He said that he intends to continue on until further notice. I am so excited! He is doing a m/w/f update schedule. His current continuation is called The Legacy of Dominic Deegan. Help me show him that his work is truly appreciated.
Well I said that I will be using this day for fandoms of all sorts. I am all over the place as far as what I geek over. My love of comics all started with xmen. I am fond of damaged heroes. It allows for hope that anyone can be a hero, not just the perfect folk.
I grew up with comic books, and the television bringing them to life. Not that I ever needed it, the books and their amazing stories were more than enough for my fertile imagination. And I was not alone.
I like to think that people like Stan Lee are where geek culture started. I am so grateful to have been able to see the stories, and I hope to see many more.
I have been letting this slide slightly. Too much this month to keep up on my pursuit to update my favorite webcomics… Current I am up to date on Questionable Content, Goblins, and Geekasaurus. I am working on getting up to date on Looking for group. So many great webcomics and I will eventually get back to having a list worth reading.
Ok… Now for the other part of webcomic Wednesday. Fandoms… I am all over the place in my fandoms. Naming the different ones that I enjoy would take forever. I have been trying recently to convince my teen daughter that being into kids stuff in a fandom way is okay. She is into monster high and was afraid that it was too childish. (Personally I love Cleo and Ghoulia.) So I present you a question… What is your favorite fandom and why?
So… In the past I have been awful about updating this blog. I am hoping that if I do a bit of a schedule it may help. So I decided to post my plan… Please be patient with me as I may still lapse.
Monday : poems. That will be the day when I share any poetry that I feel like sharing.
Tuesday : teasers. I have a children’s chapter book that I am working on currently, and Serena has her second book in her zombie apocalypse series. This is when I will be sharing teasers and updates on the work we are doing.
Wednesday : webcomics! This is going to be where I discuss webcomics and perhaps other fandoms.
Thursday : Reviews. Both tech and books. I am a geek who reads a lot. I really need to start doing a review segment on here.
Friday : writing helpers. This is where I will be talking about the technical difficulties that come with writing.
I am not scheduling weekends. And I may end up posting random other than the schedule… Cause life. You get it, I am quite sure. Also I may be less accurate to the schedule in November. I am doing the pad challenge and Serena is doing Nanowrimo. So I don’t know how much extra time for blogging I will have. But I will be posting. Just figure it will be less than I am hoping for.
Well webcomics are amazing comics that have been posted on the web. It really is that simple. Years ago I was following nearly two hundred separate comics. Then I lost access to a computer, and mobile phones were too hard to read on .
Some have ended. I am still sorting through my links. I am current on two… Working on a third.
These are the ones I am up to date on. I am going to try to post about this topic every Wednesday.
Ok, I admit part of the delay was my addiction to webcomics. I have been without a computer for about five years. I can’t read them on my phone. So I am trying to catch up with my favorite ones. Some I am finding no longer update (girlswithslingshots being one). Some are harder to update than others. I will attempt to do a post in the near future about my favorite webcomics and why. Just let me get caught up first.
I, so far have done a poem for each of the prompts that were given for Inktober. Then the prompt Angular came up yesterday. Weak…. Was late due to webcomics. Angular because I see nothing poetic in that. I’m sorry but I don’t see myself ever writing poems about angular. So I chose a different prompt. The prompt for the second one is cry.
I will be doing today’s inktober post in a little bit. I have the art done, and I have the writing area ready. I just need to eat something and come back to the writing.
