Arctic Circle

AUTHOR:Alex Hallatt
ABOUT: daily cartoon strip about three penguins, Oscar, Ed and Gordo, who have emigrated from Antarctica to the Arctic. They join a small community that includes a polar bear, a lemming, a snow rabbit and an Arctic tern. commenting on environmental issues and anthropologic actions.

My dears, i come to you today with a webcomic that merges together two of my greatest and almost total passions in life.
That of art trough comics,  and that of love for nature, along with the necessity we have to try and preserve it as far as we can, dispite all the damage, wrong turns current society has taken.

Its a strip, with very clever jokes and a strong connection with the many wrongs in our society.
unfortunatly we cannot see all online, but we can periodically check the updates trough the newspaper website it cames out in and their website provides a decent (thought short) samples.

I leave you then with this green revolution hint, maybe it will inspire you to search and make your own mind about the current situation on homo sapiens VS mother gaia :)

Stuff sucks

AUTHOR: Liz greenfield    
ABOUT: life .. its turns in and out..sucky turns

a boy, working in a record store owned by a fanatic music-holic. a hot girlfriend soon to be ex-fiance, under-aged crazy girl with strange priorities, dubious friends and stuff
beautiful art, this graphic novel is depicted in small spaces, using the background uniform color to ascertain scene changes in the story line. wonky drawings and well versed dialogs.
it won the 2006 Clickie Award for Best Narrative.

just 6 chapters, but its enough for the well build characters enter your mind and its impressive ending leaves nothing untold.
RATING: Splendid!

 

*Note: update on x-mas evening would be blahh so im updating early this week, and not on a saturday ;) happy hollidays!

Order of Tales

AUTHOR:Evan  Dahm
ABOUT: “an adventure story that follows Teller Koark, the last member of a society of storytellers, as he becomies involved in a complex plot dealing with secrets lost in the history of Oversid.”

DOES NOT GET BETTER than this……………!!!!

awfull lot to say but few words can describe these works of art. Evan  Dahm (DAM! ;D) is
absolutely one of the greatest artist now in existance, comic wise.
he created a new exciting and strange world, that borders on our own imagination with characters so wild
and far off, that still you can related to them very strongly.

he has two completed stories, rice boy and the order of tales. i havent read the first, but order of tales is
amazingly put together with a intricate story and astonishing artwork, B&W granted, but once you start
you cant stop. the only problem… its too short for me! i could’ve gone reading it forever!
An adventure voyage along a new world, in order to save a story.

RATING: ASTONISHING!!!!

Evil Diva

AUTHOR: (concept) Peter Menotti, (art & writting) Brinson Thieme* and (inking) HAI

ABOUT: in a world where one can be either an angel or a devil, a nice devil girl conflicted by she should do receives a powerful scepter.

This webcomic i must say, is hard to classify.  the story line is pretty great, very funny, with parallel stories about Loki (north god) and the “old man”, Satan, Jesus (bartender ;] ) etc!

The main character is a little devil girl with a kind heart! actually perfect representation that good and evil are not black and white. she has a lunatic hell-hound for a dog, a super-never-lost-a-case-lawyer for a mom, and the right arm of Satan for a dad.
Pretty funny with beautiful art, it’s refreshing and very expressive. I loved it until it changed: unfortunately, things happen and the artist couldn’t draw it anymore*, so the style changed along with the artist. the new artist tried to make a smooth transition, and almost did before changing the style completly and making a break in the story.
After chapter seven, it can’t be said that it’s the same webcomic.
i recommend reading the first chapters, specially the side-comics ;) as they are amazing. mom kicks ass…

 

RATING: STUPENDOUS ! (1st to 6th chpt.)
