Sunday Comics | ‘Scoob and Shag’ returns from hiatus

Check out webcomics by Diego Casasola, Jes and Cin Wibowo, Simon Roy, Bev Johnson and more.

Here’s a round up of some of the best and most interesting comics we’ve seen online recently. If we missed something, let us know in the comments below.

The crew behind the webcomic Scoob and Shag are back in action after taking a bit of a hiatus that encompassed most of last year. A lengthy new episode appeared on the last day of Dec. 31, with another new popping up earlier this month.

The strip started as a joke on Tumblr back in 2014, and has since grown into somewhat of an internet phenomenon. Created by Diego Casasola, aka Dingo, and the Misterie Krew, the story is … wow, how to describe it? It’s definitely a parody of Scooby Doo, or at least it started that way, but since then it has grown to encompass an endless cast of your favorite cartoons who are participating in an epic story that’s filled with action, intrigue, horror, comedy and some great character moments. Imagine if all the cartoons you watched as a kid were actually broadcasts from another planet …

It’s kinda insane, and is worth experiencing for yourself.

Following a successful Kickstarter and an announcement about an upcoming collection from Image Comics, Simon Roy has kicked off a sequel to his Griz Grobus webcomic titled Refugium.

This past week was Valentine’s Day, and love was in the air — and on the internets. Heartstrings by Bev Johnson, a new webcomic featuring a rising pop star who secretly used to be in a punk band, debuted this past week on the big Day of Love. There’s a bunch of pages already up for this one, so there’s plenty to check out.

Jes and Cin Wibowo — they’re twins who write, draw and color comics — are the creators of the upcoming graphic novels Lunar Boy and Weirdo, and they’ve also done this super-cute fan comic starring Superman and Lois Lane. “Who is Superman? A Private Interview with Lois Lane” can be found on their social media.

(And if you dig that, you might also like their 40-page Martian Manhunter fan comic).

Speaking of love and superheroes, let’s move from comics’ most famous super couple to one that artist Tenshi conceived but makes a ton of sense — the all-clone couple of Ben Reilly and X-23. Check out part one and part two on his social media.

Let’s end today with a quick one from Greg Pak, which he wrote AND drew:
