This week will be full of comics by my fellow webcomic creators and the creme de la creme of visual entries to the FutureWorldProblems contest I mentioned the other day. If you like this charming entry, check out the original post with FutureWorldProblems here, or the first comic on the subject here.
UPDATE: Ah, dernit! In my sleep deprivation and idiocy I forgot to mention that today’s comic, while drawn amazingly by Ami (mentioned below) was written in the car while Dern from “Hello With Cheese” and I were driving back from Wild Pig Con last weekend. We spent half the ride writing jokes for our own comics, each others, and generally being clever. Hello With Cheese is an amazing comic I talk more about below.
Today’s comic comes from Ami “Auilix” B of The Glass Urchin. Ami and her partner-in-drinking Bree have been around the East Coast convention scene for the last couple of years, though I can’t remember exactly when we first met. I do know that I was a fan of her comic long before, as it is adorable. It is autobiographical, though she depicts herself and all the other recurring characters as adorable animals living in a normal-people sized world. Trust me when I say it’s worth reading from the beginning, as the evolution of her art as well as her storytelling has been amazing to watch. Maybe some day I’ll do something interesting enough in her presence to get drawn into the comic, though I wouldn’t ask for it. She’s already complained about people doing that.
The most recent news is that due to excess submissions from artists (and a lack of complaints from you the readers,) #FutureWorldProblems will extend into next week! I love the all the submissions I’ve received so much I may put all these and any others I find on their own site, as I know Registered Weapon has already gotten in on the action on their own site, and rumor has it a few others are in the works. If more artists send me comics, I will find a way to post them. SOMEHOW.
UPDATE AGAIN: In addition to today’s comic featuring FWP, Obsidian and his cohort Dern have put together a FutureWorldProblems comic over at Hello With Cheese today, as well as O putting together one of his own over at Commissioned Comic. Thanks to O and Dern for the posts, taking the idea a step further, and for being some of the friendliest webcomic artists I know.
