SAN FRANCISCOÃ¢â‚¬â€Modern Tales (www.moderntales.com), one of the InternetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s premier webcomics sites, is proud to announce the relaunch of its longform comics section, Modern Tales Longplay. Longplay will feature completed, self-contained comics of 24 pages or longer, as well as regularly-updating chapters of ongoing graphic novels. Like the Modern Tales Strip Lounge, MT Longplay will be free to all readers.
The first webcomic featured on the new Longplay is ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s About Girls, a serialized graphic novel by writer William G and artist Sahsha Andrade. A romantic comedy, ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s About Girls follows the protagonist, Icon, and his circle of friends, a group that includes a pro wrestler, a girl who runs a porn site, and a college freshman who sometimes fails to wear pants. Eric Burns of Websnark.com calls ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s About Girls Ã¢â‚¬Å“the kind of thing that makes me excited to be reading webcomics,Ã¢â‚¬Â and the Webcomics Examiner notes, Ã¢â‚¬Å“G is building a body of work that promises to have enduring appeal.Ã¢â‚¬Â
William G also writes and draws Bang Barstal on GraphicSmash.com, one of the Modern Tales sister sites. Sahsha Andrade is the cocreator, with Raymond Andrade, of Neko and Joruba (www.webcomicsnation.com/nekkoandjoruba).
Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been a fan of ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s About Girls for a long time, and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m thrilled to be able to feature it on Modern Tales,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Shaenon K. Garrity, editor of Modern Tales. Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the perfect way to debut the new MT Longplay section. Look forward to more amazing additions to Longplay in the months to come!Ã¢â‚¬Â
The newest chapter of ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s About Girls is available now at Modern Tales.
