We launched this column last week, hitting several well-known webcomic titles. This week, we’re pulling in some of the lesser-known webcomickers as well as some saying hello again to some not-quite-forgotton friends!
5. Caffeinated Toothpaste: Reality is broken!
4. Uncubed: Krishna’s diary comic returns!
3. Moth: Chapter one concludes!
Kat Rush is studying animation right now, and that’s brought her webcomic Moth to some people’s notice because she’s been incorporating animations in her webcomic pages. They’re just up to the point of going beyond comics and into cartoons, but not quite there. She’s doing a fantastic job of adding animations that improve the storytelling without the story being dependent on them. Plus, it’s a really intriguing story! She just wrapped up her first chapter this week, so it’s a great time to get caught up before she dives into the next!
2. Please Rewind: The 2004 webcomic returns!
1. Multiple comics: Muffins!
Senator Wendy Davis’ filibuster in the Texas state legislature earlier this week was seen as a major victory against anti-abortion legislation. While various media outlets’ reporting varied in the specifics of their coverage, CNN was talking about… muffins. A numebr of comics picked up on the theme and utilized it in an assortment of absurd contexts. Having to choose one image to include here, I’m opting for Scenes from a Multiverse since Jonathan Rosenberg went the extra mile to tie the muffins gag to the Supreme Court rulings later in the week. But be warned: muffins–while tasty–can be fattening!
