If you’re new to this, here’s the scoop: Each Wednesday we will showcase five indie web comics. Each will be categorized and will be judged by ART, STORY and APPEAL. This will give you an opportunity to support indie artists and the amazing work they do.
Story & Art: Chris Noeth
About: Maya is a science fiction story with superhero elements. The first thing you will notice in the book is that everything ‘feels’ like a book for children or a fantasy story, but believe this comic is a cinematic science fiction story with a lot of action… so don’t quit reading!
Maya is the name of a girl, the main character who has… oh… I don’t think I can really give too many details yet. You will have to read it for yourself and I don’t want to spoil anything here.
Comic: Evil Diva
Story & Art: Pete Menotti & Honoel Ibardolaza
About: Diva Beelze is an average fifteen-year old girl. She likes the color pink, her first purse, and Justin Bieber. She loves cute dresses. She may not be the smartest cookie, but she certainly is the sweetest. There’s only one problem with that.
Diva is a devil.
You see, Diva has a small problem. A goodness problem. She has these compulsions — uncontrollable urges to just be nice. She knows there must be a twelve step program, somewhere. She wonders when her parents are going to ask, ‘have you ever tried not being good?’
Clearly, the best solution is to become a superhero.
Comic: Grrl Power
Story & Art: David Barrack
About: A comic about super heroines. Well there are guys too but mostly it’s about the girls. Doing the things that super powered girls do. Fighting crime, saving the world, dating, dieting, shopping, etc. There’ll be explosions, cheesecake, beefcake, heroes and villains, angels and demons, cyborgs, ninjas, probably pirates.
