Are you a fan of original web comics? I most certainly am. Creators featuring their work online are among the most unique, visually arresting, and interesting out there. They enjoy the freedom to play by their own rules and establish a style all their own. Not to mention that as a fledgling creator myself, it is inspiring to see others follow through and do it. And although I enjoy many of them, by the very nature of the internet, it can be difficult to find those worthwhile, high quality projects that consistently deliver a great story, or great humor, or great art and writing.
Thankfully, there’s a new website up called “Just the First Frame,” which focuses on presenting the first frame of a ton of comics collected from around the internet (some popular, some unknown), all in order to simply expose readers to something new and get them clicking. If you’re looking for some new comics beyond the usual (Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, XKCD, and the like), I think this is the place for you.
There are many unique and beautiful stories to be found among those listed and I’ve already discovered some that I will definitely be sticking with for the foreseeable future. Besides the fact that they’re awesome, they’re all completely FREE, but I do recommend supporting the creators if you like what you see. A copy of reMIND is already ordered and on its way to my home. You can find my top picks listed below (each one of the links takes you to the first page). Please take a moment to support these dedicated creators and enjoy!
