Not really realistic but still seemingly modeled after our world. Only it's a world of animals with familiar human problems like drinking too much, intrusive advertising, and seeing your analyst... There's a lot of funny bits in many of the strips based on simply having the animals act like humans.And then there's Charles... He's a bit of a man-child really, well an abominable snowman-child to be exact, but you get the picture... ...There's a story lurking in this comic that we're only just getting the first true glimmer of......Kerschl has done a remarkably effective job of sketching out the world in which it takes place.The art is very well done......The Abominable Charles Christopher is a light-hearted, entertaining comic so far and one I can't recommend enough."-- Xaviar Xerexes at ComixTalk (May 2008 Issue)Comic 1 is a new blog where popular webcomics will be listed, reviewed, and rated.

Updates: Monday & Thursday



Description:
"Sandra and Woo is a webcomic about the adventures of the girl Sandra and her pet raccoon Woo written by Oliver Knörzer (aka Novil) and drawn by Powree. Its writing and style are influenced by Bill Watterson’s legendary comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, but Sandra and Woo shall also offer many unique features, like Woo’s trips to the nearby forest to meet his furry friends. Moreover, single strips or even small storylines will center on the minor characters, who are often disregarded in other comic strips. While most strips are just supposed to be funny or whimsical, some stories will also deal with more serious issues like the destruction of the environment. Of course in the most funny way possible."

Moose Mountain ComicsWebcomic URL: http://www.moosemountaincomics.com/Webcomic RSS feed: http://www.moosemountaincomics.com/feed/Artist/Author: Mark RickettsUpdates: Tuesday & ThursdayDescription:"MOOSE MOUNTAIN revolves around Ranger Todd, a nature loving do-gooder, and the wildlife that resides at Moose Mountain National Park. There's a brooding, love-sick blackfly, a New Jersey squirrel family relocated to the park by the wildlife witness protection program, a self-centered, passive aggressive black bear, and a moose whose four husbands were all killed in tragic car crashes. Most of the strips are set in the park, which, in many ways, resembles Maine's Acadia National Park, but sometimes the action takes place in the coastal resort town of Bar Harbor where Todd reluctantly shares his house with a beaver named Orson."-- WebcomicZReviews:"...There is no rush, no urgency to resolve the story and it will take as long as it takes to show you what needs to be shown. And that’s good. As part of the country theme, you can let life slow down and really savor the moment.Every comic has a decent punchline, driven by the characters......Moose Mountain starts out in black and white, with some grey tones. The linework is good, the characters are well designed with accessories and varying sizes for interest. Later comics have (mostly) color which I liked much more......the color gives a much better sense of the woods than other coloring techniques. It also provides some variation on the characters, making them seem more alive...Moose Mountain will be a fun comic to check up on... If you like nature, rural life or Maine then you’ll like Moose Mountain....Moose Mountain has masterfully done presentation. It’s full of great theming, with a great color choices of browns and greens. There is wood signage and the next/back buttons reminded me of official nature park signs. It has an open, comfortable layout which is easy to navigate..."-- excerpts from a great review by Delos Woodruff at ArtPatient.com"Make no mistake: Moose Mountain is no “amateur” comic strip.

WEBCOMIC: Luz: Girl of the Knowing

Luz: Girl of the KnowingWebcomic URL: http://www.transmission-x.com/luz/Webcomic RSS feed: http://www.transmission-x.com/luz/feed/Artist/Author: Claudia DavilaUpdates: currently on hiatusDescription:"She’s a city girl on a mission to gather “the knowing”: knowledge and experience about sustainable survival for humans, specifically in urban centers. Occasionally we’ll glimpse into Luz’s musings about the human condition and our connection, or lack thereof, to the natural world. You’ll meet her neighbours, friends, and mom and grandma, all of whom have knowledge of their own to share with Luz. Whenever it’s appropriate I’ll include commentary and links to more information relating to the content of each episode."-- (Claudia Davila) Luz: Blog ArchiveReviews:"...While it can be a tad preachy at times, this kid-friendly webcomic features Luz, a Hispanic girl, who is already thinking about life in the post-peak-oil world. Her vision is reassuring, not apocalyptic, with neighbors from a variety of Old Countries showing her how they preserve their own food, save seeds, rotate crops, and conserve water. A blackout means picnics and internet withdrawal, not panic and looting. Luz even demonstrates how to make an electricity-free refrigerator...There is an atmosphere of foreboding to Luz. She’s preparing for something that she herself can’t really visualize, but she’s sensible enough to talk to wise grownups about it. And there are a few hints of hard choices to come when Luz has to forgo a vacation trip, as well as when she eyes a friend’s pet rabbit as a possible protein source. Cartoonist Claudia Davila puts a lot of emphasis on simple measures, such as eating local foods, and self-reliance—walking and keeping a garden. The overall message is that less reliance on oil might actually be a good thing, if it strengthens communities.Davila’s clear, simple style makes the strip easy to read, and her light approach keeps the strip interesting most of the time. At a time when news about high gas and food prices may be making kids anxious, Luz presents some ways to take control of the situation... "-- Brigid Alverson on Good Comics for Kids(You'll also want to read Brigid's interview with Claudia Davila on Digital Strips from 2 Mar 2008)"...It might read as vaguely didactic, but I’m quite charmed by this webcomic. The linework is lovely; simple to process but with a solid use of visual flow and color, plus a great sense of pacing......it’s obviously kid-friendly... obvious potential for a dual audience. It’s new, kind of nascent, and I’m interested to see where it goes; it’s interesting, relevant work from someone with a long history working in comics and visual media. Take a half-hour or so to read through her archives; I think you’ll find it time well spent."-- Anne Thalheimer on FleenComic 1 is a new blog where popular webcomics will be listed, reviewed, and rated.

"The Crown Prince is an ongoing comic strip which chronicles the adventures and misadventures, the trials and tribulations, and the sleepless nights and stressful days of new parents. In this case, the parents just happen to be royalty! With the strip’s meticulous research, it makes perfect reading for anyone who has wondered how child-rearing actually happened in the Middle Ages. As an added wrinkle, events in the comic move forward in time: watch the Crown Prince grow over time rather than remaining a perpetual infant, toddler or child. Just because the children will grow, however, you should not expect the adult characters to change in any way whatsoever, except perhaps their clothing and even then in very rare circumstances."

It's wild and domesticated reading!"-- The Webcomic List"Faux Pas (pronounced American-fashion, 'fox paws') is the story of Randy and his animal friends, most of whom were trained to be studio animal actors - the animals you see in movies, commercials and in live stage shows. Most of them are now retired, officially or through lack of opportunity, and eke out an existence as best they can while avoiding being hunted, eaten or sold. The main setting for the series is Green Mountain Studio Animals (GMSA), a run-down farm in the Colorado Rockies. They fully realize that they exist at the whim of their human owners, but Randy's new owners are content to let him and his friends live pretty much as they please.Tossed into the mix are a herd of housecats who think of Randy as their personal cat toy. Chief among the cats is Kira, who tries to help Randy when she can just to keep him from being so predictable. Also prominent in Randy's life is Cindy, a wilderness vixen who finds him charming and attractive, if confusing.The action mostly takes place at or near GMSA. Other settings include the surrounding mountain woodlands where their wild animal friends live; the nearby zoo, known as St. Mia Hatz; and the occasional trip to remote locations where one or another of the crew might actually get some work. Randy's adventures occasionally take him far afield, but he always manages to find his way back.'Faux Pas' - a social blunder brought about by miscommunication - accurately describes the tone of the series in its many forms: Randy working to hold things together in a world ruled by Murphy's Law."-- Faux Pas: An Overview"The comic takes place at the fictional Green Mountain Studio Animals, a run-down farm in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. Randy and the majority of his friends there are semi-retired animal actors. Although the humans in the series are rarely seen, the animals know that it is to their owners that they owe their existence. The animal characters are anthropomorphic in the sense of having human language and intelligence, but are non-bipedal, effectively similar in anatomy to "normal" animals."-- "Faux Pas" article on Wiki Fur"Faux Pas (pronounced "fox paws") is a webcomic about animals that were trained to act as studio animals, now retired living on a farm. Randy is a fox living at Green Mountian Studio Animals (beware peculiar critters), an ordinary animal-actor fox leased out to make commercials and b-grade movies. A charming fellow, with a few problems -- like cats (over a hundered of them, who think of him as a toy) -- and Cindy, a wild vixen who seems to like him and has moved in. The story takes place in the United States."-- Spiritius-Temporis.comReviews:"...Perhaps the first thing that strikes the reader is the art style, masterfully inspired in that of Disney's Robin Hood. R&M make the style entirely their own... The mastery of their craft seems evident not only in the fluidity of their artwork, but also in their skillful use of body language appropriate to each animal species......The background information that they have gone through the trouble of acquiring and sharing with their readership comes across clearly in the strip. ...well grounded and researched, as opposed to haphazardly put together.As strong as the art is for Faux Pas, its true strength lies in the writing. It may be tempting for some to lump it with the plethora of furry comics out there, but it is not a furry comic – this is a comic about animals and their unique observations on each other and the human w[...]

It's a game where you enter as the captain of a Freighter and run around the galaxy trying to make money by gathering resources and trading them between ports which want to buy them from you and sell you other things. You then get to take the money and spend it on numerous things such as a fleet of warships, strange devices, and even make investments. Your eventual goal is to get powerful enough to conquer three particular planets and win the game, but this doesn't just happen overnight. The galaxy evolves, other players might get in your way, and other distractions await! What's the catch?

Your ultimate task: Develop your own massive fleet and conquer planets with the credits you earn while living the life of a trader, and then take over the galaxy for yourself!Along the way you will find Pirates, Starbases, Orbital Shipyards, hidden Secrets, Investment Opportunities, Spy on other players, and come to understand why this game is called Galactic GAUNTLET. If you think can handle running the maze that is space congested with all sorts of challenges and eventually dominate against all odds, then prepare yourself and get in on the action now!This game is free, requires no special software to run other than the latest version of Internet Explorer or Firefox, and uses a multi-player, mostly text-based interface.

Project XPASE



Comic-1 has recently joined "Project XPASE"!

XPASE is a new search engine, and the folks there are beginning to build a list of webcomics. The best part is that they offer listings for webcomics, and have a special category for those. If you are a webmaster or otherwise have a hand in a website that has anything to do with webcomics, then all that you have to do to be listed at XPASE is create a link -- EVEN a "nofollow" link (XPASE doesn't care). And the link can even be temporary. XPASE will find that link, and you will be added to their collection of webcomics. That's it. It's that easy. No registration, submission forms, or e-mail requests -- just link to them from somewhere on your site. :-D

http://www.xpase.net/

While they're really just getting started right now, the site should prove to be quite popular, so you might expect some decent exposure from your new listing there.

Angie draws it. A lot of people got to know us as bear and kitten but that got creepy and people started sending us links to furry conventions and stuff so we decided to end that whole thing. Not that we have anything against furries, it's just not our scene.We both went to art school, are in our lower to mid 20's and we have two cats. We ride bikes and go to shows and drink a lot..."-- Bear and KittenReviews:"Conceived by two people who don't reveal their names but go by Bear and Kitten in the news section, thecomic has odd humor centered around these two characters......slightly surreal. The comic's themselves are set against a stark white background that is the website... The characters themselves are cute... Subdued colors work here as well, because the comic doesn't have a happy wacky colorful world feel.The writing however is hard to explain. The jokes don't really come across as jokes to me. That is to say that I don't really find them funny... I get a bit of black humor from the writing, but more black than humor.I really liked the art for it's sense of uniqueness... I did however have issues with the writing, as I didn't understand what the point was... Cute, in a dark and uncomfortable sort of way."-- Webcomic Asylum"...It’s a cute comic, and the edgy material and humor nicely contrasts with the simplistic, mostly black and white art.The humor’s where this comic shines. There’s no story per se, but the individual gags work well... the humor manages to stay light. Each strip is a fairly quick read... The only complaint here is that the text is a bit small and occasionally hard to read. The art’s a plus, and works perfectly with the characters. Mostly black and white linework, it uses color sparingly, but to its maximum effect. It’s almost abstract in appearance, and it still communicates the idea and gags well..."-- wayofthegeek"Bear and Kitten, though it sounds cute and cuddly, is quite a quirky little disturbing romp... Each strip is a quick read as even the most verbose consist of only one or two sentences a panel......There is a simplicity to the writing, certainly, but simplicity shouldn't be mistaken for poor form... a great deal of the writing takes place beyond the scope of dialogue - it's the totality of the scene that tells these short stories...The artwork is a soft comfort that lulls the reader into a mindset that makes the disturbing aspects of the comic even more so... the relatively mild violence and uneasy concepts come across as much more tantalizing when everything else is so warm and fuzzy. It's an excellent blend......The comic isn't twisted - in fact, I suspect that if you took any of the scripts and drew them in a realistic fashion they would loose not only their charm, but also their punch. It's the mix that makes the comic work, the parts aren't all that spectacular when taken alone, but the sum of those parts makes for a great read."-- BetaPwned's Wednesday Webcomic WeviewComic 1 is a new blog where popular webcomics will be listed, reviewed, and rated.

Melonpool?

Thu, 03 Apr 2008 01:37:00 +0000

Melonpool?Apparently the webcomic Melonpool has been discontinued, in favor of Steve Troop's latest project, "Zero Worship." Here's excerpts from the blog on Melonpool's official site -- or Zero Worship's official site -- http://www.zeroworship.com/ -- where Melonpool.com now redirects its visitors... February 08, 2008"I thought I'd post some thoughts on why I haven't done any new Melonpool's for awhile... it's mainly to give you the best possible ending to the strip. My inspiration is tied up in another project right now and given the amount of time I have for Melonpool, I could probably wrap it up in 4-8 more strips. But, to do the story justice, I should give it about 24 strips. I hate it when endings are rushed, but on the other hand, I'm pretty tired of beating this dead horse.Regardless of how you look at it, Melonpool is very close to the end -- whether it's 4 installments, 8 installments or 24 -- the end is in sight...Anyway, toward the end of February, I plan to get back to Melonpool and see it through to the end. Whether that's 4, 8 or 24 strips, remains to be seen, though!"March 31, 2008"Welcome to the site formerly known as Melonpool. As you can see, there have been a few changes. I hope you enjoy my new webcomic, 'Zero Worship,' which chronicles the adventures of an eight-year-old boy and the father that tries to convince him that he's a superhero -- even though he's not!You'll be happy to know that I've finally settled on an update schedule that I think I can manage. I've tried daily. I've tried, weekly. I've even tried monthly. Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy the annual adventures of 'Zero Worship!'"If you're not familiar with the strip, here's some stuff from the Wikipedia entry for "Melonpool"..."The storyline centers on a cast of alien misfits and their adventures in space and on Earth. It has been published on the web since April 28th, 1996, making it one of the first webcomics. Regular updates ceased on December 20, 2005, with just one update since (on April 28th, 2006, marking the tenth anniversary). From October 9, 2006 Troop began posting a page a day from two successive 24-hour comics. The comic restarted on the 29th October, 2007.The comic parodies many popular television shows, movies and other cultural phenomena, such as Back to the Future, Star Trek, Star Wars, The Jetsons, and Gilligan's Island. Although it has a strong story arc, most strips end with a punchline.The comic was part of the Keenspot collection before Troop became one of the founding members of Blank Label Comics."-- WikipediaAn April Fools' Day prank?

TwoKindsWebcomic URL: http://www.2kinds.com/Webcomic RSS feed: http://2kinds.com/tk_rss.phpArtist/Author: Tom FischbachUpdates: 1-3 times per weekDescription:"Twokinds is an ongoing manga-styled webcomic that involves a human named Trace Legacy, a previous Grand Templar and guardian of the land, and Flora, a keidran. After losing his memory in a mysterious battle, Trace finds himself in the company of Flora, who, as Trace gradually begins to learn, belongs to a race of people who are enemies of his kind. As friendship conflicts with racial differences, Trace and Flora find themselves in a situation more critical then either of them can imagine..."-- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TwoKinds"After losing his memory to a mysterious battle, Trace Legacy, a former leader for an organization of mages called the Templar, finds himself in the company of Flora, a girl of strange, tiger-like qualities. As Trace gradually begins to re-learn what he once knew, he soon discovers that Flora belongs to a race of people who are enemies of his kind. As friendship confects with racial differences, Trace and Flora find themselves in a situation more critical than either of them can imagine.Twokinds is a webcomic that takes place in a world conflicted with racial tension, primarily between the human-like Humans and the animal-like Keidran. They have dramatically different societies and ideas on how to live and act. It is because of these differences that the two races are almost always in some form of conflict. The story begins as the world hinges on the brink of another war. However, unlike before, this time war seems to be the result of a single man, manipulating the two races for his own personal gain - though he no longer has any memory of doing so."-- http://2kinds.com/Comic 1 is a new blog where popular webcomics will be listed, reviewed, and rated.

WEBCOMIC: Ardra

Tue, 01 Apr 2008 00:25:00 +0000

ArdraWebcomic URL: http://ardracomic.com/Webcomic RSS feed: http://ardracomic.com/feed.xmlArtist/Author: Jason Dunstan, with Trevor Adams, Fesworks, & guestsUpdates: Tuesday & FridayDescription: "It's about a rather unique concept wherein Dr. Ardra Renelsior, a brilliant scientist, decides to raise twins as a sort of lifelong science experiment. The humor comes from the fact that Ardra tends to think along logical, scientific lines (her many quirks aside) and is extremely clueless when it comes to actually raising children. Eileen and Lenore, while both super-intelligent and rather sarcastic, otherwise couldn't be more different from one another...Ardra found a suitable "paternal donor" and surrogate mother because, in Ardra's completely scientific view, "Childbirth is really sort of disgusting!" Ardra then conducted the appropriate genetic manipulations to create two super geniuses. These two would, hopefully, lead the world into a new Age of Reason, a new Renaissance....And so, Lenore and Eileen were born. After the girls spent about a year with their surrogate (to handle all the "messy baby stuff"), Ardra became a full fledged "maternal care-giver". The grand experiment continues today, seven years later. But the question is: Can Ardra overcome maternal instincts to raise the girls in a completely logical, unbiased scientific manner? Stay tuned, as our favorite "Iron Chef" loving, cell-phone hating, Libertarian Woman of Science tries her hand at motherhood."-- http://ardracomic.com/faq.htmComic 1 is a new blog where popular webcomics will be listed, reviewed, and rated.
