Our June issue is going to look at steampunk in webcomics. Our cover art from Klio takes a departure from the traditional Victorian-era imagery of steampunk to imagine an alternate world technologically-advanced Roman empire. Klio’s webcomic, SPQR Blues, however, is not only a rollicking good story but historically accurate.
We’ve also wrapped up our May issue with the last of our reviews of the nominated webcomics for the Eisner Best Digital Comics category: The Abominable Charles Christopher by Karl Kerschl, Understanding The Process by Joe Infurnari, PX! by Manny Trembly and Eric Anderson, Immortal by Dean Haspiel, and SugarShock! by Josh Whedon and Fabio Moon.
It’s a strong batch of nominees this year and I recommend folks check them all out. Although they range in subject and approach, they all have very strong writing and art — basically they’re really good. It’s a ways off to Eisner night (Friday, July 25th) but in the meantime why not share with us your prediction on who will win this year’s Digital Comics category (and any other category you’re interested in writing about).
