Comic Spotlight: The Phoenix Requiem

228The Phoenix Requiem is a comic created by Sarah Ellerton. THIS COMIC IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Before I say much about this comic, I want to point out that Sarah has 2 other webcomics: Inverloch, which has been completed, and another comic currently updating called Dreamless (written by Bobby Crosby of Last Blood, Marry Me, and +EV). All of her comics can be accessed through http://seraph-inn.com/.

Comic Spotlight: Red String

redstring2Red String is a comic by Gina Biggs of Strawberry Comics. There are several other artists who create comics for Strawberry Comics that you should also check out.

Red String is probably one of the few comics I read that are targeted, in my opinion, at young women. Not to say that guys can’t enjoy this comic as well, but it certainly has that distinctive ‘shoujo’ manga feel along the lines of Hana Kimi, Hana Yori Dango, or Peach Girl. It is also appropriate for young teens, maybe 12 and up. On Gina’s Profile page, she lists the first two volumes as 10+, and by Volume 3 the rating increases to 13+. That’s very appropriate.

The two major characters incidentally are female. mages below are of course copyright Chris Hazelton.

Let me start from the beginning…

Comic Spotlight: Ménage à 3

mat20091017Hi all! I’ve been behind the scenes here at the blog but I have been asked to create some content for the site. The spotlight posts are open to all type of comics, be they web, print, or manga format. There are of course loads of indexes for webcomics out there, and tons of hosted comic spaces like Keenspot or DrunkDuck, but which ones are the good ones? Obviously, the choices I make for the Comic Spotlight are based on personal preference and whether or not I would recommend them to a friend or general audience. Also, since I am female, they may be slanted more towards female audiences, but I will indicate that in my review.

Without further ado, my first webcomic recommendation:
