Addanac City

Addanac City is a comic about an annoying 7 year old boy named Hank. When you look in the dictionary under attitude, there's a picture of Hank. Hank lives with his parents and hangs out with his buddy, Tim. The comic has made me laugh outloud. The artwork is nice -- it looks better if you click on it. My only complaint is that the archive isn't very easy to go through. I couldn't find a logo, so I've stolen a comic to put here. I hope you enjoy it.

Happy Reading!

Geek Blather

I started reading Geek Blather thinking it was going to be a gaming comic and it was -- sort of -- for a little while. Then, I got hooked on the characters and the storyline and I've had to read the archives to the end. Despite the fact that Quinn - one of the Creators - hates Country. (How can anyone hate Country? That's just so WRONG!)
Moving on...

The story follows six main characters -- Ayen, Gwydia, Rae, Agate, Kipp (Sparky) and Marcus -- through the trials and tribulations of high school. The artwork is very good and the dialogue is realistic. I love the internal dialogues the characters have.

Anyway, this is a pretty good comic and I think you'll like it, so take some time to check it out.

Happy Reading!

Gone With Blastwave

Anyone who has read this blog through the years knows that I like bright, funny, happy strips. A storyline is okay, a little mystery is fine, but basically I'm not into the dark comics with heavy plots. I'll review them and post them for others to enjoy, but they're not really my thing. Also, you all know I HATE to post a review without a logo.

But, today, I'm going to break my rules.

I was recently surfing from one comic to another and -- sorry -- I don't remember how I found this strip, but I found a link to
Gone With Blastwave. I clicked on it and didn't really take it in until now.
The graphics on this comic are so undescribably good. I'm not even sure how to mention them to you. When I took a good look, I thought, well, I have to review this one, even though I was positive I wouldn't actually like it.

{Note to self: Don't judge a comic by it's cover}

I'm not really sure what's going on in the strip. I think it is about two guys in a war zone, but I'm not sure what war zone, but it doesn't matter. Something about blues, reds and yellows. It's dark and funny. And, the drawings are amazing. So, note to you: Don't judge a comic by it's cover and give this one a try.

Happy Reading

Deleted Scenes

I saw an ad for this comic and I figured what the heck, I'll click on it. What did I see? The comic below.

Now, that's funny stuff! I can't even write a better review that'll tell you how good this comic is, so check it out.

Happy Reading!

Another Dark Comic. You guys need to check this out. It's like reading a comic book right on my computer screen. It does have a much deserve Parental Advisory. It updates once a week on Thursdays and I think you should check it out. Anarchy is very well done and amazing.
Take time to check it out.
Happy Reading!

Bear Nuts

What can I say about Bear Nuts?
If you're looking for a strip that shows the cute interactions between humans and our furry friends -- this isn't it.
If you're looking for a strip that is classy -- um, this isn't it, either.
But, if you're looking for a strip that shows man's inhumanity to man, ah, no, that's not it, either. Huh.
Wait, I've got it, if you're looking for a strip about a bunch of bears living in a zoo -- this is the place. You are going to laugh your butt off. This is a funny, funny strip. It is well drawn and nicely done. It's like the Care Bears on acid. I've loved every strip I've read.
I predict you will too.
Happy Reading!

If you look close...

If you take a gander to the right, you might notice that I've always have links to comics there. (Not the Project Wonderful Ad spot, lower). You might notice some are missing. That's because I tested some links and discovered that those comics are gone. (cry)

So, if you have a button graphic -- png, gif or jpg -- email it to me, along with the URL and I'll post it there, provided you post a link to me on your site.

Now, if you saw the Project Wonderful, it would be great if you advertised here. Also, you should check out Project Wonderful as a great place to place inexpensive ads.

Happy Reading!

Road Crew

I'd like to say that I love the tagline for this comic "Not everyone can be a rock star." It's so true. And, not just in rock star life, but in everyday life. Too many times the real work is done by people who never get any credit. So, when I was asked to review this comic, I thought, "Yeah, I'll do it -- for the ones who never get the spotlight."
ahem...Sorry, I got a little carried away.
I'd, also, like to start this review by saying right upfront, this is most definitely NOT a comic for the young fans. The language is a little rough, there's some nudity and I wouldn't read this one in front of my grandchildren.
The artwork isn't slick, but you can see improvements as the strip develops. The jokes can be a little crude, but sometimes, I like a crude.
I think if you like rock music and you want to see a comedic reveal of what's behind the scenes, you should check out Road Crew.
Happy Reading!

Logo Contest

Okay, comic fans, I'm going to do a little begging. See that crappy online comics logo up at the top of the page? Take a look, I'll wait.

It's horrible, isn't it? You know why? Because I can't draw -- those who can't, critique.

So, I got this great idea -- starting March 1st, I will hold a contest for a new logo design. Each week (or day if I get a lot of entries), I will post the entries. The one that gets the most votes (or I like best if there is a tie) will be my new logo.

And, what does the artist get?

You get to post your site's logo at the top of my page for one year. If you run an online comic - and I haven't all ready reviewed it -- I'll post a review. If I have reviewed it, I'll review it again. The only catch is that once you submit the logo, it's mine to use -- on my site, in advertising, whatever. You can use it where ever you want to showcase your work, but the one year of free advertising on the top of my page is the only "payment" you will receive. I would prefer a logo that is 600 pixels by 480, however, if you produce one that's awesome and doesn't fit the banner mode, I won't protest.

When you submit your logo to, please remember to submit the logo for your website, so I can post it, too.

Thanks in advance!

News Release: The Black Cherry Bombshells Season II Begins

Girl Gang vs. Zombie Web Comic Returns with "It's a Man's World!"

New York, NY -, DC Comics' On-Line Imprint, is pleased to announce the return of The Black Cherry Bombshells' Season Two: It's a Man's World. The girl-on-zombie action comic's return coincides with the creative team's return from New York Comic Con.

When we last left the post apocalyptic bad girls, the fate of several series' leads remained in question. In a world where women are an endangered species and men have been mutated into flesh eating zombies, nothing is guaranteed. Philadelphia Creators Tony Trov and Johnny Zito say readers can expect plenty of answers by way of flashbacks this season.

Read the Comic that describes as, "Zombies and kick ass women in every episode... Black Cherry Bombshells is like the early days of Sex and the City but awesome!"

The Black Cherry Bombshells can be read at Be their friend at

Gene's Journal

Before I even began reading the comic, I thought to myself that this has to be one of the strangest premises for a comic. The comic is based on Gene Roddenberry -- you know, the creator of "Star Trek" -- sort of based, I should say. Cartoonist David Reddick has created a comic on what Roddenberry's life might have been as a child. No, that's not right -- yes, what his life might have been like as a child if he had aliens for friends. That's better.
The website is very professionally done. Nice graphics, nice set up. I really like it. The comic updates every Monday and Wednesday.
And, this'll come as no shock, I love it. I laughed outloud. Now, I do have to say a couple of things were just slightly racy, just a little, so I wouldn't let the under 10 set read it, but the comic is safe for the over ten set. I don't think that matters, as I don't think the under ten set would read it anyway, but kids grow so fast these days, so who knows. I realize that that logo I've swiped from the site also advertises Rod & Barry, but sadly, I forgot to ask them for a logo to use for this review. However; I just might be reviewing Rod & Barry, so this'll work.
And, yes, I know I said I wouldn't post the review until tomorrow, but I couldn't wait.
Happy Reading!

What the Hell Happened?

Well, I'll tell you what happened... Life happened. I got busy at work, I was trying to read all the comics that were suggested and I just shut down, which is what I had said I wouldn't do -- so I'm sorry about that.

So, keep the comic suggestions coming -- I'm back and this time I mean it. It is time to start setting my priorities right. Work will just have to wait. I have to come home sometime. So, I have a couple of new suggestions in my email. Today, I'll read one comic and tomorrow, you my gentle readers will have one new review.

Happy Reading!
