2. Box Boy, 215 Ink, (cc/ @215Ink)

On a crisp autumn morning, beneath a pile of fallen leaves, a strange creature made of cereal boxes and paper rolls awakens. He doesn't know where he is or why he is, only that he must make it home. His way back is filled with dangers, surprises, and a dark secret that could change the world. Box Boy is a comic about friendship, the pursuit of purpose, and the adventures that happen along the way. His quiet determination and desperation to find his place and way in the world is evident in this cute but inspiring comic.

3. The Verge - Last Touch, ComicZona, (cc/ @ponchara80)

Sarah has found a very old amulet in archaeology excavations. That amulet changes Sarah's life inside out with a gift and a curse, starting with some strange and terrifying dreams! What is in store for her in the future? The amulet brings only trouble to those around it so it can’t be good, whatever it is. Unlike that amulet, this comic is harmless, enjoy!

4. Aikonia, Aikonia, (cc/ @Aikonia)

Aikonia is an ongoing, fantasy adventure webcomic filled with magic, suspense, and political intrigue. True and powerful magic is unattainable for most, no matter how hard they study, but some members of this organization will do anything for that power. Power drives a lot of people to do crazy things, especially in groups! Nobody is truly safe here and our heroes aren’t going to let fear stop them from solving the mystery of magic. Best of luck everyone, just watch out for that nasty council!

Created by Andrew-David Jahchan, David Baron, and Alexandria Smith

5. Demon of the Underground, Bob, (cc/ @bob-artist)

Pogo, a big-mouthed young thief from Chicago, falls through a hole in the ground and finds himself in a brutal underground world of warring factions that all want him for different reasons. His only hope for escape and survival is his telekinetic ability—and the help of a stray ferret named Annie. He doesn’t seem to have much choice in the situation, but lucky he got a chance. You’ve got a chance too, to read this comic, let’s do it!

I honestly cannot recommend Demon of the Underground enough. It's wonderful! Bob is so great at blending silliness in with the darkness, even on the same page! The artwork is gorgeous and has so much detail. The characters are loveable and flawed, but still trying their best in the harsh world of the underground. 10/10. SO good!

Oh yes, I've been a fan for years, but it's exciting to see DOTU featured here. I'm always recommending it to people. The world building is incredible.

Agreed. @bob-artist seems to, as we say, know what they're doing. :) And we're honored to have their work up here, as well!
