Eponymous is a modern-day superhero story from the monthly digital anthology VS Comics, written by Mike Garley, with art by Martin Simmonds, and lettered by Mike Stock. The story takes place in a time when super-powered individuals no longer permeate the population, though there are definite hints that they used to, and that they became something of a problem. So, when the superhero Eponymous comes onto the scene, we know it is a big deal, though it is not exactly clear why. There is a secret organization that believes Eponymous may be responsible for a horrible tragedy in the future and is determined to take her down at any cost, including sacrificing the life of Lucy, a young girl who has nightmares of horrible catastrophes that eventually come true.

Beginning as a student publication as part of UCLA’s Daily Bruin, C’est la Vie has since become a syndicated comic strip on the Internet. Since 2003, the comic has shown us the inner thoughts and feelings—such as they are—of a French expatriate woman in the Los Angeles area, working hard as an art columnist at a local newspaper and trying her best to ignore American culture while cultivating her own unique world. Full of sarcastic wit and cynical outlooks, CLV is good for a quick laugh, but there’s also plenty of involved storytelling and semi-drama to keep a person interested. While not one of the more well-known webcomics out there, CLV nonetheless has an excellent following and is shown to be of great quality. C’est la Vie updates every day at clv-comic.com.

Angel Falling is a graphic novel, written and created by Jeffrey Kaufman, about a woman named Angel who wakes up on a dumpster in an alley, half clothed and with no memory of who she is. The only thing she knows is a young autistic kid named Connor. She soon finds out, though, that she and Connor are two of the deadliest people on the planet, and that Connor also has the gift of a photographic physical memory that allows him to instantly be able to perform any task he witnesses. As Angel spends more time around Connor, the more she realizes that Connor knows where she (and he) came from, but doesn’t want them to go back, and that there are people who will stop at nothing to keep them from escaping.
