Go Check Out Eisner-Nominated Minus

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.

Shame on you, Xerexes! Minus

Shame on you, Xerexes! Minus is one of the best comic strips currently running (on the web or in print). At least you know that NOW, I guess.

Multiplex is a twice weekly humor comic about the staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas and the movies that play there.

Mentions

For such a great comic I'm surprised there were only two mentions of it at Comixpedia - once when I linked to a FLEEN writeup of it just this past December and once this February when you plugged it in the forums.

On second thought, let's not go to Comixpedia. It is a silly place.

I run this place! Tip the piano player on the way out.

I'm only one man :0

I'm only one man. I'll never be able to read all of the good webcomics out there all by myself.

I'm always excited to read great stuff though - so sitting down and reading Minus was a joy.
