The 40 Comics of June 2021

Kevin Featured Comics • Jun 30, 2021

 

We're at the end of another month, so let's take a look back at all the comics featured during June. We started the month off big with our announcement of Heavy Metal arriving on GlobalComix, and the train kept rolling from there. We featured comics in the action, slice of life and crime genres, as well as comic themes like monsters and stories that were primarily historical in nature. We also featured two other publishers for the first time, with Bliss on Tap joining GlobalComix and Antarctic Press bringing a ton of new content to the platform.

Reflecting on the month as a whole, 'big' is probably an understatement. There were a lot of fantastic stories featured, and while we're sad that June is ending, we're excited about what the next month will bring. Let us know your favorites in the comments, and read on for all of the comics!
