Webcomic special? yea sure why not!

Throughout the past few years I have had a sort of fluctuating interest in little things called WEBCOMICS. For many they can be useless generic boring, what have you. My interest was resparked again recently in the form of a few comics, one violent and hilarious, another with a downright odd storyline involving magic and shit, and the last one being diabetes inducingly high levels of pure adorable.

we'll begin with the adorable "Luv Peaches" by the extremely talented Miu. For those reading this ( if any one reads this at all) Miu is an artist, who is most well known for the furry porn he draws... I discovered him when an odd little picture of Sweeny Todd wound up in my email inbox. ( i'd post the picture but i think having one picture by him could be enough to get me a banhammer so i will be conservative with it).

Anywho... to those accquainted with Miu's stylings, this comic(from a content rating standpoint) is rather mellow. There doesnt seem to be any indication of anything perverted potentially happening. But miu being.... miu, you never know what will happen.

Next up we have the "sci fi" action comedy, Blade kitten, by Space Captain Steve.

I myself don't know much about its origins or the artist but the story itself is pretty damn good. It doesn't drag its feet, and the art is phenomenal. It even managed to spawn a video game(which might I add is a pretty damned good game). The series builds it's own universe, and continues to grow and expand. If given time it could become as big as if not bigger than Penny Arcade, or CAD. I won't give anything away on what it is about.... you'll just have to read it for yourself at

Finally we have Flipside.... by a guy who's name i seem to have forgotten. Well... anywho. The first few chapters can be pretty raunchy, but past that it mellows out and just kinda becomes violent.... but that is ok as the violence advances the story nicely. It can be dark, it can be sad, it can be a high fantasy comedy of magic, sex, and a dude who has no fucking clue what he is doing. The art constantly improves as the chapters roll on, and the story manages to stay consistent and readable.

An odd fact... the currently running 27 chapters available.... are not the whole story... infact the artist did a whole 26 chapters which he refers to as "Book 0"

Now that that whole mess is out of the way, the last thing I will say is, I really hope these comics don't become like megatokyo for me. I used to love megatokyo.... and still kinda do, but it eventually grew to the point that it just drags on and on and on. I really hope all 3 of these comics hold up in the long run. So now that I am finished with this stupid post no one will read, I will end it with one word


your psychotic blogging friend,
