The Jellyfish

Odette has a jellyfish in their eye. The doctors don’t have an answer. It’s a mild inconvenience until the day a second one appears. A college dropout trying to navigate family pressures and an uncertain future, Odette works at a local bookstore, keeps their pet...

Office Gods

When Iris starts her new job at Olympus, she quickly discovers several things. First, the two demigods she embarrassed herself in front of last week work here. Two, she’s one of only a handful of humans working in the building (the rest are demigods and gods). And...

Dwellings

When most people think of horror anthologies in the comic medium, they might think of EC Comic’s Tales from the Crypt or The Vault of Fear. They might also think of Creepshow, a series of movies and television shows that were an homage to comics like Tales from the...

The Star Seekers, Volume 1

K-pop idols with magic are all the rage; those without magic are considered tier-two. Sadly, that means that boy band Star One barely gets noticed. Once the members turn 19 years old and still don’t have magic powers, their company assumes that they’ll never be a...

Glass Scientists

There have been plenty of modern takes and graphic adaptations of classic tales, but this new conception of Stevenson's story, Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, is an entirely new approach, mixing classic and historical metaphors, references, and settings with...

Scoop, v.1

Okay, right off the bat, this comic gave me serious flashbacks. I was a broadcasting major in Orlando, Florida back in the day and had three (non-paid!) internships BEFORE I graduated. They never let ME ride in the traffic chopper! BUT I carried a lot of very heavy...

The Horizon Vol. 1

JH’s The Horizon is not a tale for the squeamish or faint of heart. The story opens with images of intense fear. A mother hides her child. Images are lost behind chalk-like scrawl of screams and booms. The sky darkens. All is quiet as the boy emerges from his hiding...

The Villainess Turns the Hourglass

This time travel story started as a Korean webcomic and gained enough popularity that an English publisher picked it up to release in the US. The story starts with Aria facing execution for her misdeeds toward stepsister Mielle. Except Mielle reveals that she...

Advocate

According to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary, an advocate is one who defends, maintains, or pleads the cause for another. This word functions as both noun and verb—a role that Eddie Ahn plays out unwaveringly in his graphic memoir Advocate. Multifaceted and heroically...
