    I like to think of Power Out, a webcomic I do for the website Act-I-Vate, as a hybrid of Haruki Murakami's Kafka on the Shore and Dan Clowes' Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron.

    Fourteen and friendless, Justin doesn't want to run away from his family - he wants them to run away from him. A massive, extended power out grants him his wish, but without the video game he counts as his only friend, Justin is forced to interact with a world he has always preferred ignoring. As he figures out how to survive in his seemingly quaint New England suburb, Justin encounters a unique collection of friends and tormentors, including a brazen young neighbor uninhibited by her inability to speak English, a dead woman who cheerfully haunts his wet dreams, and the eccentric holdouts in a town that has been evacuated by the military.




    Thanks, and please check it out!

    Ana Chronistic is a whoop ass time travel spectacular. If you like what you see on that one, then hop over to the reading section. There's a half dozen other projects in the works.

    I do stuff like this from time to time. They're stupid and not good, but I mostly do it for my own fun:
    Karate!

    And then I post them here.

    Webcomics. I think I produce one of those.

    It's called Bunny, it can be found here.
    It concerns a small family of little marshmallow-like creatures that are desperately trying to make sense of their world and ours.

    It is supposed to be daily. Sometimes it is.

    who are you going to call
    null

    It's not always animated, but it is sometimes.

    DIN KRAKATAU is a comic I just updated (today) with new, re-lettered and edited pages. This is the final COLOR version of the work and as such I don't plan any further pages.

    I'd put it somewhere in the action/adventure box (with elements of horror, sf and fantasy).

    Two somewhat random preview pages

    page

    and a link to the entire thing (yes, the color version is finished). For those interested, I am finally working on a print edition (sent the files off to ka-blam).

    For those who would rather see the upcoming redrawn/b&w version, stay tuned, hopefully end of this year I can do that and follow it with a sequel.

    Oh, what's the story about? Hey, you have to see it for yourself.

    "Bug-Out: An Electric Drama In Black And Red". Thusfar has two pages, and I'm going on Holiday soon so it'll probably just pause.

    Here's the info that will go in the About Section of the site when it is finished:

    "BUG-OUT is set in an indeterminate time in the future, where mankind has been boiled down to a tiny melting pot of humans stuck forever in a 21st-Century twilight, lacking only Television and large parts of the Internet. Sealed inside the Black-Domed City of Sacrum, they are policed by the Chitin Guard, an elite taskforce of super-police whose behaviour and law-enforcing skills are enhanced and moderated by a selection of computerized helmets in the shape of black and red insects."

    "Once, they were the last hope for order within a city of mad stagnation; now, there are but nine, and the computer which must pick new officers refuses to work again. Disgusted by the lack of change within Sacrum's walls, Sergeant Aidan Marks deserts his post, declaring his intention to leave the city forever and find a new life. But, even if he is able to oppose his own friends, he little knows of the terrible tragedies the city has yet to endure..."

    Got a couple of projects going on at http://www.duckandcoverstudios.com

    Mere Mortal is about a guy in a world where everyone has superpowers except him. The art is by my partner in crime Chris Johnson. It has super powered strippers.

    Night Life is run as a webcomic, prose short stories on Blogger and a story done on Twitter (Which I will probably never ever do again because it was colossal pain in the ass.) It's set in a world were you have weird sciend, mystic horror shenanagans and superheroes all running about doing the sorts of things such folks do.

    I'd post some art, but I'm packing for Chicago and probably don't even have time to post this, but I did anyhow.

    I've just launched November Shift: seven students at the Goddard School of Astronautical Engineering aboard Strongwater Station in the year 2118 are tied together by their assignment to the November (or N) Shift for scavenging duty. Scavenging is a brand of work-study job wherein students retrieve and catalog space junk for the dual purpose of recycling precious metals and equipment as well as decluttering the low Earth orbit environment, which is becoming dangerously congested with debris.

    Launch consisted of a seven page prequel story, and Book One will start next Thursday night (NS updates Thursday nights). Though the prequel is in monochrome, the comic is full colour. If you like your science fiction with a healthy servings of character drama, technology based in current science, theory, and idea, and semi-realism, November Shift is right up your alley (((:

    I write and illustrate WORLD OF HURT, which I bill as "The Internet's #1 Blaxploitation Webcomic!"

    WORLD OF HURT is a black & white newspaper-style strip in the traditon of Rip Kirby or Modesty Blaise. It updates every Wednesday and a new blog entry that focuses on an aspect of comic art, funk and soul music, or Blaxploitation is added every Friday.

    Unlike most attempts to revisit the genre that pass off derision under the guise of "homage," WORLD OF HURT is a serious look at the Blaxploitation action genre. It follows the exploits of ISAIAH “PASTOR” HURT, a tough, mysterious, stylish and streetwise “fixer.” He can handle any problem you’ve got…if you’re willing to pay the price. Pastor never asks for money, but as payment for his services, he demands two favors to be named later, each to be carried out at a time, place, and manner of his choosing: No questions asked.

    @Brendan McGinley

    Yeah, I saw his work and loved the shadows and the starkness of it all and just had to have him on board. The setting of the comic has given a new lease of life to his art and he's really enjoying the challenge so far!

    This is a great thread. Thanks for starting it. My comic is After-School Agent.

    Gordon Levitch is a 13 year old kid who was dying of cancer until the government tested an experimental drug on him. Not only did it cure him. It made him stronger, faster, and tougher. Unfortunately now the government forces him to go on a series of black op missions for them. All the while he has to keep this part of his life secret from
    his family.

    After-School Agent is an exciting, funny and action-packed all ages webcomic that is updated every Monday. Check it out...

    I do a webcomic called Things Change: The Metamorphoses Comic. I just hit my third anniversary yesterday with other 320 pages published to date. My comic does not have superheroes, zombies, ninjas, monsters, or large breasted women in skimpy outfits. It's not fantasy, autobiography, horror, or sci-fi. I'm not sure what it is, in webcomics directory I end up having to call it "experiemental". I use Ovid's Metamorphoses as a structural conceit. It's a lot about me experimenting with formal elements of comics (style, color, layouts, pacing, etc.). My next chapter (up Sept 1) is a hypercomic (where you click on panels to move through the non-linear narrative). Sometimes it's a sequence of short stories, sometimes it's longer narratives, things are always changing.

    Here are two pages from the most recent book (which is done in a four panel strip format, previous books were done as regular portrait pages or landscape pages), one is the first page of the most recent story, the other is about 80 pages later.

    Things Change, first page of book 4

    I do the illustrations for Girl vs. Robot, a daily (Mon-Fri) alternative editorial cartoon, definitely on the progressive side.

    Here's one we did on the media deal between MSNBC & Fox:

    Well I just literally started my webcomix the other day, being yesterday, but what the hell, I'll give you guys a special sneak peek at some pages that haven't been posted yet and some back story into it.




    So it's a SPACE OPERA, starring a bounty hunter, an engineer, and sometimes a weapons expert and their exploits into a universe where time has become irrelevant thanks to being able to travel at the speed of light in space ships moddified out of space creatures that are kind of like sea life... except in space... yeah.

    Go to BANG BANG GOES HUNTER and read, NOW!

    Thanks for this thread Mr. Ellis. I am writing a Nigerian webcomic set in Lagos about the life, times and deaths of a sometimes reluctant assassin called Tenugo. Finished one story arc so far (five issues) and the next arc should be beginning shortly. You can find Tenugo here

    Hey, McLean -- are you just writing Ana Chronistic? Or doing the art too? If not, who is? It's FANFRIGGINTASTIC.


    The art is by Dexter Wee (silly name, serious artist) and, yes, he's fanfriggintastic.
