Sunday Comics | ‘Heartstopper’ will return in April

Plus: Get Dinosaur Comics texted to you! And check out some recent award nominees.

Here’s a round-up of some of the best webcomics we’ve seen online recently — and news about them as well. If we missed something, let us know in the comments below.

Heartstopper, the mega-popular webcomic by Alice Oseman that’s been adapted into a series on Netflix, will return from hiatus in April. The announcement came on Twitter from Oseman’s official account.

“The Heartstopper webcomic returns to Tapas, Webtoon, and Tumblr on the 1st April 2023! (I promise this isn’t an April Fool’s joke lol),” the tweet read.

Heartstopper went on hiatus almost a year ago, with the author citing “severe stress and burnout” as the reason. Several guest comics have appeared since then, and Oseman also posted a minicomic online at the end of 2022.

You can find Heartstopper on Webtoon, Tapas and Tumblr when it returns.
