Here’s a round up of some of the best comics we’ve seen online recently. If we missed something, let us know in the comments below.
Here’s a fun one to dive into — creator Matthew Dow Smith has been posting an amazing new comic, Johnny Chaos, on his Twitter feed. He’s currently up to chapter five, with new pages going up every Wednesday.
I read an article the other day about the high number of animals being fostered/adopted during the quarantine, as people looked for company. “I Got a Cat” by Gabrielle Bell for the New Yorker isn’t about that exactly, but it did come to mind as I read it. It is, more generally, about the love and companionship a feline friend can bring — as well as about crazy cat people and why cats eat faces. So it covers a lot of ground in a few panels.
Nate Powell looks at the fantasy vs. reality of being “sealed away” with someone during a catastrophe, in a beautifully drawn piece called “Hide Out” for The Nib.
Do you know how to tell a crow from a raven? It’s all about the barrel rolls in this comic by Rosemary Mosco, a naturalist, science writer and creator of the comic Bird and Moon. For more information on this topic, check out this article, which featured the above comic.
