7 (who?)
This month is a special feature of some of my favourite comic artists!

Despite only having posted one page so far, I am very eager to see what will happen next in her beautifully drawn comic for the theme of "Lost and Found." She manages to convey in a single page a more profound sense of loss and desperation than many artists can achieve in fifty pages. The visuals are striking, and her characters are both aesthetically and emotionally appealing.

Equal parts humour and sincerity, her comic "Kay and P" is full of creative, well-conceived characters and engrossing dialogue. The interactions between the diverse cast members will leave you hungry to learn more about them... plus, where else have you seen a more charming and expressive animated skeleton?

Despite having a number of comic series under her belt, "Souffrance de Coeurs" remains my favourite from this artist. The trials - both mental and physical - that the main character seeks to overcome are, I imagine for most people, easy to relate to, and the moral of the story is hopeful without being saccharine.

Her comic "Last of the Polar Bears" portrays personable, charming creatures juxtaposed against a backdrop of the harsh, unforgiving Arctic region. It is an instantly engaging read (at least for the pages posted thus far) both for the innocent dialogue and the gorgeous visuals.

His comic "Riceboy" is both visceral and surreal. The visuals are striking, the dialogue is poetic, and the storyline is the Hero's Journey portrayed in one of the most beautiful ways possible. I highly recommend reading the full comic here:

The various arcs in his comic series "Nature of Nature's Art" are some of the most psychologically rich and engrossing comics that I have ever read. Be fore-warned; there are no easy answers to be had in his work! His comics will challenge you and force you to draw your own conclusions. I highly recommend starting with his arc "10%+", although my favourite of the various arcs was "Secretary." You can read the full comics here:

(Please feel free to share your own favourite comics with me! I'm always looking for new and interesting reads :))

Another comic, this time with tigers: [link] from :icontigresadaina:

Oh, yes, I watch her! I LOVE her tigers. They are even my favourite subspecies, the Sumatran tiger. :D

I almost thought you would :D Really? I'm so bad with telling those different subspecies apart. I've never thought about those, I'm just very good with telling a rattus norvegicus from a rattus rattus and both from a mus muscelus :XD: And I'm good with rodents in general :D

Honestly, the only tigers that I can tell apart reliably are Sumatran, Siberian, and Bengal. I think it's because I haven't see the others in real life, so I don't have as good a grasp on their subtle differences... it's hard to learn things like that by looking at photos alone, at least for me! I can usually tell black rats from Norway rats unless they are very, very young or skinny! Then they sort of look alike to me. :lol:

I bet it is! I know there are subtle differences, yet I guess that's the same with cars, since I never deal with that stuff, I really can't tell those apart. Sure, I know the most popular brands but when it comes to other ones I usually fail :D

Haha ^^ No wonder, the differences are so tiny. Yet I'm confident with telling them apart :D It's more difficult with other rats since there are so many!

I'm really late to commenting, but I'm honored you featured me! :thanks: I'm glad you liked SdC, that was my favorite to draw too :D

Ha ha, no worries, I'm always a week or more behind in commenting! And your comic definitely deserves more love. It has actual thought-provoking elements and moral ambiguity, which is something that we don't get to see often enough, in my opinion. :)

These are some good recommendations! Definitely a few I'll have to make a point to check out.

Cheap Thrills is hands down my absolute favorite webcomic. It's gritty and real with interesting, diverse characters and a plot that keeps you hooked (though it is a slice-of-life story!) The art style changes every chapter and is simply brilliant to look at. One of my favorite artists, as well. :)

Ooh, thank you for the suggestion! I added that to my bookmarks, so I will remember to sit down and read through it next time I have a few extra hours online. I'm really digging the art style... and it's interesting to see how that has progressed from the first page to the latest one! :)
