So, this economy sucks, yeah? I know I can’t get my weekly comic fix on as big as I’d like. No reason to despair though! There are a ton of great comics online to read, for free. That’s right — free.
Like most of you out there, I have my favorite webcomics that I read every morning over coffee at work. They are all humor strips, and they are a great way to start the day for me. But many of those don’t update over the weekend, so when I found myself bored a couple Sundays ago, I decided to catch up on some of the longform webcomics. For those unfamiliar with the term, longform webcomics are typically online graphic novels, or webcomics that are one complete story versus an ongoing strip.
Longform webcomics are great to read in one sitting, so with that in mind, I spent a recent weekend afternoon catching up on my friend Kory Bingaman’s webcomic Skin Deep. It’s a fantastic piece of work, where you can see Kory merging and melding all of the things that she loves into her own story and creating her own point of view of the world. Like most of us first starting out, her early pages show a bit of clumsy storytelling and rougher art. However, her new Halloween storyline blows me away with how far she has come in such a short time. The art is marvelous to look at, and I’m excited to see where the characters are headed. This lady is going places. Soon. I’d recommend getting an eyeful now so you can say you were a fan back when.
I’m going to be reading a new longform webcomic every weekend, which I’d like to “review” (in quotes because I’m not really a reviewer – I just like to point out stuff I like for people). Are there any out there that you would recommend I check out?
