June Feature #4: Tales of Yore

Kevin Featured Comics • Jun 14, 2021

 

For June's fourth feature we wanted to take a look at stories that reflect on moments from the past. We've featured plenty of modern day comics and stories based in the future, so we thought it was a good time to hone in on tales of yore. The five comics picked out include both fictional and historial stories. Some of them even put a new spin on well-known tales from folklore.

Let us know your favorites in the comments, and be sure to hit the 'Like' button on the comics you enjoy so you get updates on new issues.
