With everyone sheltering in place, it’s been a time to share recommendations. A long time ago, I had the idea of posting something weekly about online comics that I was discovering. For various reasons, I never did and a lot of those old links are either dead or lost. But I have a few more recent ones that I’ve saved, so here they are…
Amelia Onorato “Sorgin”
A story that is sweet on the surface, but is actually about war and its consequences.
Connor Willumsen “I Needed the Discounts”
Willumsen always has amazing drawings but his stories are often obtuse or unfinished. This one is like a Dark Mirror episode. It’s focused and thought-provoking.
Dakota McFadzean “Soon We’re Both Screaming”
A real story about a stay-at-home-dad.
Dylan Horrocks “Words Are Gas”
A little piece by Horrocks in Poetry.
Lauren Weinstein “Being an Artist and a Mother”
Art history and parenting from one mother (and cartoonist’s) perspective.
Leela Corman “The Blood Road”
An autobiographical story about a visit to Berlin and Buchenwald.
Sophia Foster-Dimino Sex Fantasy 4
Don’t let the title mislead you. It’s hard to describe this story, but it’s one my favorites from Foster-Dimino. Surprising emotional.
Will Tempest “No Longer Ours”
A sci-fi story about humans struggling to survive on a planet that no longer wants them.
