This month’s sponsor: Hunter Black Comics is the best damn hardboiled fantasy webcomic on the Internet, just ask series creators Justin Peniston and William Orr. If Tarantino, Tolkien, and Tartakovsky made a webcomic, it might be half the two-fisted tale of blood-soaked revenge that Hunter Black is. Maybe. There’s a new page every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday…and it’s absolutely free. What are you waiting for? Be sure to visit HunterBlackComics.com. Because you need a comic that’ll kick your ass.
