World of Webcomics is a series devoted to exploring the world of online comics and their target audiences, as well as their art styles, storylines, and the general enjoyment that they provide.
The best way I can describe this comic is a slice-of-life with some very unusual aspects that one normally wouldn’t find in reality. The titular character, Art, has a couple of friends/housemates who he keeps getting involved with when they have weird adventures, much to his dismay, but he seems to be able to handle it quite well. Sequential Art tries to update on a Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule, but it isn’t always doable, at collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php.

If you have played a Tomb Raider game before, you are familiar with the character of Lara Croft. Honestly, though, even if you haven’t, you might have played the excellent Uncharted games or seen the incredible Indiana Jones trilogy, which were inspired by and inspiration for Tomb Raider in that order. So, tough-as-nails archeologist/action hero fights bad guys, confronts supernaturalish forces, and rescues artifacts for preservation or profit. What the Tomb Raider reboot does is retell the origins of this character in a very convincing way.
Terrorists have weaponized a time machine, using it to send a nuclear bomb sometime into the future in the middle of Washington, D.C. As a result, the city is now largely abandoned, with the remaining population depending on government aid and food to continue to stay. The city is now home to gangs and junkies, as well as a few honest people who don’t want to leave their homes behind. This is the sort of environment where a man can make a lot of money, and that man is Nate Lawson. Lawson’s business plan is to go into the most dangerous city in the world and retrieve the things that people had to leave behind.
While Whistler and his demonic partners may be threatening the world with a rapidly approaching apocalypse, one event has been even more pressing for the heroes (and readers) of Dark Horse Comics’ Angel & Faith series: the potential resurrection of Rupert Giles! With this week’s release of Angel & Faith #22, writer Christos Gage and artist Rebekah Isaacs continue their nearly flawless work on the series and finally deliver what could easily be the most anticipated issue of the season!
Come on, who doesn't love clowns?
With their bulging, maniacal eyes and grotesque, painted-on smiles, their shrill shrieks of delirious glee and their frantic desperate caperings . . . who doesn't like that?
Besides most people with half a brain. Go to any circus and for every kid laughing with glee, there’s another trying their damnedest to throw mom and dad in front of them and make a mindless escape. Because let’s face it . . .
Clowns can be freakin’ scary.
Each book in Pathfinder’s Ultimate series of roleplaying supplements takes different aspect of the game, and expands it, offering new abilities, options, and story ideas to enhance your game. Ultimate Combat looked at battle and the characters that excel at it. Ultimate Magic looked at the spell system and offered new opportunities to weave sorcery into your game. Ultimate Campaign looks at the campaign as a whole and explores new ways to improve and expand your roleplaying game from a series of strung-together adventures into an in-depth look at the character’s life and the adventures that are the highlights of it.
When somebody emails you and asks if you would like to read a sneak preview of Clive Barker's new comic book, you pretty much have a moral obligation to say yes; I mean he is Clive Barker. So, when my Managing Editor emailed that she had it available, I responded as fast as I could. It wasn’t long before I found myself reading Issue #1 of Next Testament from Barker, his writing partner Mike Miller (not to be confused with Mike Millar of Kick-Ass and The Ultimates fame, among other things), and BOOM! Studios.
When war finally leaves Cybertron, a few Transformers are left behind to fend for themselves on a dying world with little energon, archaic weapons, and many others willing to fight to take from others what they can get.
City Fall is the first big event storyline in IDW’s newest Ninja Turtle series. Two years ago, IDW brought back Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creator Kevin Eastman to oversee a new story that takes the best elements of everything that came before and incorporates them in an action-packed cowabunga-fest. They’ve taken their time introducing the turtles, Shredder, the foot clan, other rival gangs, and fan-favorite character Casey Jones. Now that all those elements are in place, it is time for Eastman and series writer Tom Waltz to take all their toys out of the toy bin and tell an epic adventure.
A few months ago, IDW relaunched all their G.I. Joe lines with new titles that are designed to be easy for readers to jump right in and follow the adventures of the Real American Heroes. I decided I would start reading and reviewing the flagship title, G.I. Joe, by Fred Van Lente and Steve Kurth. We are four issues in, and the previous 3 issues have been amazing for all readers and really terrible for the Joes. The Joes have been split up, pinned down, and under siege since halfway through Issue #1, while their leader Duke is tortured by the evil Baroness and Dr. Mindbender.
