The 41 Comics of May 2021

Kevin Featured Comics • May 31, 2021

 

As we wind down one month and get ready for another, let's take a look back at the 41 comics we featured during the month of May.

Outside of our official announcement of Source Point Press coming to GlobalComix, the month had a heavy focus on smaller teams and individual creators. We wanted to make sure that our features continued to align with the vision for the platform as a whole: to make it easier to discover the amazing work of indie comic creators.

No matter the size of the team that worked on the comics featured in May, there's one thing that rings true with all of them, and that's great storytelling. Let us know your favorites in the comments, and be on the lookout for the first June feature later this week!
