Of the Eisner nominees this year for Best Digital Comic the one (I am embarrassed to admit) I hadn't gotten to reading yet was Minus by Ryan Armand. The first impression I had of reading it was how much it reminded me of Kazu Kibuish's Copper. Probably that was because of the formatting, the wonderful color scheme (although Minus is subdued compared to Copper, relying on more faded tones) and the similar viewpoint of a young person in a world more magical then our own. Minus is a bit more impish than Copper though. I think I really liked this one with Minus playing Cupid, this one waiting to play baseball with an asteroid, this one with bathtub mermaids, and this one with the littlest perrito.
Minus represents webcomics extremely well. It's a great read.
