Yesterday, the nominations for the Eisner Awards, often considered the Oscars of Comics, came out, honoring five comics in the digital comics category. But there are dozens of amazing webcomics out there that the Eisners have completely ignored.
Eisner noms aside, this is a great list of #webcomics - I’ve read a few! As long as AG is on your lists- I’m happy :)
In the Eisners’ partial defense, I’m pretty sure a lot of these comics aren’t submitted to them with any regularity— and they need to be submitted to qualify. You can argue that’s a flaw in the system, but it does mean that not all the comics on this list were exactly snubbed. Still, it’s a great list.
I spent most of this list going “Mmhm that’s right!” and then other parts of the list clicking links for comics I haven’t read yet so now I have a bunch of new comics to read. But also, I’m so glad Melanie Gillman is nominated for an Eisner. Basically, this is a gateway to a bunch of great comics.

I never do fan art, and yet here we are.
The cognitive dissonance caused by a society that tells its children to “follow their dreams” through messages in films, literature, etc. and then punishes them for not choosing safe, money making careers in adulthood is fascinating, to say the least.
I see other artists on tumblr…
And they’re like:
And I’m like:
This was the best show in the universe.
It was on a whole other level.
I give all my love to you Dave the Barbarian.
When I see unsourced art I get uncomfortable, like I just witnessed a crime…
Charlottetown’s big anniversary is coming up! The 150th anniversary of the 1864 Charlottetown Conference, that is. That means there is a whole lot of celebrating Canadian Confederation history this year, in the nation’s wee-ist province. Fitting for “the Cradle of Confederation.”
Jeff Alward is running a blog about creating a graphic novel for the occasion! You can follow it here, and even if this piece of history isn’t what will keep you there, having an inside look at the making of an ambitious graphic novel should.
Jeff is the MAN!
A card for my sister! She just had a baby today, my new niece Lily has been welcomed to the world.
