Zita the Spacegirl

You MUST have a look at this short comic (three pages) of Ben Hatke’s Zita the Spacegirl. I love the character design of the young heroine and this particular comic is absolutely fantastic in every way. The second comic is also very funny. A Zita graphic novel will be published in February 2011 which is already available for pre-order on Amazon.

Webcomic tips: Buni, Lackadaisy and Skia

It’s once again time for our popular feature “Novil recommends other webcomics”:


Buni (→ read from the beginning) by Ryan Pagelow can be described with the tagline “Bad things happening to a a cheerful bunny”. Buni never loses his optimism in this gag-a-day strip which is obviously inspired by The Perry Bible Fellowship. Buni is not a bland copy since it’s also making use of character-based humor and lacks TPBF’s cynism and adult-oriented jokes. Buni is a quick read, though, with only 56 strips in the archive and one update a week.


Most of you my already be familiar with Lackadaisy (→ read from the beginning) by Tracy J. Butler, but I want to recommend it anyway.  The comic is set in St. Louis during the prohibition era and follows the exploits of the Lackadaisy crew, a formerly (but now less so) prosperous crime gang. The story is nothing special, but the characters (all cats) are lovingly designed, and the artwork is absolutely incredible, especially the facial expressions of the characters.

I'm A Rabbit Rabies

The last entry is not a real webcomic, but a link to Skia’s DeviantArt gallery. Skia’s famous fox doodles with their silly facial expressions are always lots of fun to look at. If you want even more foxes, also have a look at the drawings in the gallery of her friend Culpeo-Fox which are almost as good as Skia’s.

Happy Halloween

Powree drew this picture of Woo for Halloween since we’re not doing a Halloween strip this year.

Good news regarding my mom

My mother is out of the hospital and home again, much sooner than we thought. She’s still feeling weak, but she’s already able to walk around a bit, etc.

Thanks for the get-well messages in the last post.
