August Feature #2: When fantasy overlaps reality

By KevinFeatured Comics • Aug 10, 2021 0

 

Walt Disney had a simple but elegant quote to describe our fascination with fantastical worlds: "Fantasy and reality often overlap." It's true, too. In many ways, fantasy is often a reflection of our real world, painted in a more adventurous or mystical way. Take for example recently featured The Arcane Cocktail Enthusiast. It's the story of a cocktail bar owner in San Francisco that is also a sorceress.

There are a multitude of ways to create stories based in fantasy worlds, whether it's creating an entirely new universe outside of our own, or keeping it grounded on an alternate Earth. We've picked out five fantasy comics that we haven't...

By KevinFeatured Comics • Jul 31, 2021 0

 

It's hard to believe that we're already another month into 2021. July seems like it went by so fast, and it's no doubt that having great stories to read contributed to time flying by.

We also took a stab at sharing what was new on GlobalComix as part of the feature series, and we welcomed BHP Comics to the platform.

In total we featured 34 great comics during the month of July, and we're excited to get into August so we can share more. Let us know your favorites in the comments!

Note: This list is not a ranking, it's simply the...

July Feature #7: You're the Best

By KevinFeatured Comics • Jul 30, 2021 0

 

You're the Best by Joe Esposito has been stuck in my head the entire time that I've been thinking about the feature theme to close out July. With that being the case, and the song debuting on the Karate Kid album, it's only fitting that we end the month's feature series with a handful of comics about fighting and martial arts.

In the words of Joe Esposito, history repeats itself. Try and you'll succeed! Let us know your favorites in the comics, and feel free to share any other fighting comics you enjoy.

BHP Brings Bold Books to GlobalComix

By EricTapperCommunity • Jul 22, 2021 0

 

BHP Comics tells us, ‘Be BOLD!’ Their stories and thrilling artwork deliver on that promise. We are delighted to share some of the UK’s finest comics with our readers, and find ourselves captivated by their catalogue.

While their work spans the gamut in terms of dark and edgy with titles like Maximum Alan, and perhaps preoccupied with the end of the world with many titles focused on post-apocalypse (notably Tomorrow), they also have work for younger folks in titles like Plagued: The Miranda Chronicles.

Their most well known series Killtopia is now being made into a full animated series by Studio Voltaku! Click the link to read the first...

July Feature #5: Admitting what we don't know

By KevinFeatured Comics • Jul 19, 2021 1

 

SciFiChick has a spotlight today on Mad Cave Studios, and we wanted to add to that selection of stories by putting together our own list. Think of it as extended reading to get the week started. We've picked out a variety of themes and settings, from stories grounded on Earth, to private detectives travelling the stars.

Is science really about admitting what we don't know? Or is it about embracing it? Let's be honest, admitting is just the first step in a long journey, so it's a good thing we've got some great comics to keep us busy.
