Full Story Highlights
Last month, I complained that it was difficult to dig up enough stories to fill a full column for an â€œall agesâ€ themed issue. I had no such problem this month! Of course, itâ€™s no surprise that fantasy stories are plentiful in webcomicsâ€”fantasy comics have long been one of the most successful genres among independent print comics, from Elfquest, to Bone, to Finder. Fantasy creators continue to explore every inch of the genre, from philosophical, to action-packed, to erotic, to the downright silly.
While there is certainly a wealth of all-ages material out there, remarkably little of it is in the form of short stories or completed series.
It seems all-ages webcomics tend even more toward the infinitely-ongoing format than webcomics in general do.
The spirit of cooperation is alive and well in webcomics. In that spirit, this month we present five stories that exemplify the value of cooperation: Agnes Quill, Vulture Gulch, Rip & Teri, After Days of Passion and The Archeologists.
The second installment of Alexander Danner's new column bringing you selections from the Full Story directory of completed webcomics. This month we look at firsts and beginnings, with five comics by Srdjan Achimovich, Andrew Dabb/Ben Templesmith, Hope Larson, Ryan North/Josh Rosen, and Raina Telgemeier.
Introducing a new monthly column spotlighting completed webcomics. This month covers Narbonic, Cooking With Anne, The Front, The Tyger and Europe's First Smoker.
