Do you know about webcomics?
Have you ever read any?
Honestly, it doesn’t matter if you answered “yes, no, or maybe” because these webcomics will knock your socks off with their unique art and story lines.
Up first is a great comic that consists largely of weekly one shots of Manly Men from comics, tv and video games making a go of it as civilians in our decidedly less macho world. Manly Guys Doing Manly Things also has the great set up of the latest page being on the home page [just as the other two] so you never have to search. You can start from the beginning of Kelly Turnbull’s series here. Another great thing about this artist is that she’s super active on the interwebs and you can follow her on Tumblr and Twitter as Coelasquid. Be sure to check out her latest and greatest: Platinum Black.
Second up to bat is a comic I discovered a few months back called Namesake. The story follows Emma Crewe, a woman who can travel to other worlds that we all know through fairy tale adventures in books and movies alike. Worlds such as Oz and Wonderland to name a few. The creators, Isabel and Megan, go all out when it comes to rich details and intriguing characters. They’ve been posting regularly 3 days a week since 2010, so find a comfy spot and get ready for a great adventure! They also have a store to satisfy your knew found love with some sweet merch.
As the trend has been, comic three is an entirely different chocolate box of feels and quirky times. Meaty Yogurt is the tale of Jackie, a woman following every zany train of thought in order to find a path the will keep her free of a mediocre existence in her small town. Definitely read the About page for a richer explanation and the origins of the title. So it’s time to stop reading here and go jump into Megan Rose’s fantastic comic from the start, right now!

I think the stories behind the art are interesting – thank you for sharing these webcomics. I thought it was interesting that Meaty Yogurt’s artist said that readers helped buy her a home. I had not imagined that there could be such a large following of fans. I don’t know much about webcomics. How does a webcomic artist build such a following? Do they get exposure through other mediums? Or is it word of mouth on the web? Or talent? Or luck? Maybe there is not one “formula” for success. Something to think about.
Hello, I had never heard of Web-Comics before but they are great! As soon as the Manly Guys Doing Manly Things loaded, Guile and Kratos popped up. This is wonderful work and funny to boot.
Do you have an online portfolio or a way to follow your art?
Click here for my current portfolio. It’s still a bit of a work in progress but it has quite a few of my illustrative works and a few paintings. I’m also working on making this website more of an easy place to follow current work I’m doing and maybe even a webcomic of my own. Life’s been uncharacteristically crazy, so a lot of ideas have been forced onto back burners until I get more settled.
I love the artwork. I have always wanted to be able to draw and animate, but I don’t have that talent. I admire those that do.
