Alex Norris’ webcomic name is Webcomic Name and each instalment ends with the exact same punchline. It shouldn’t be funny but there’s something really great about the innocent way Alex approaches each idea. Have a look at some more below!
I love this. American cartoonist Lynda Barry has just been immortalized in The Family Circus by cartoonist Jeff Keane (aka Jeffy), who took over the strip created by his father Bil Keane (love seeing their signatures together). I would have assumed Lynda Barry would hate a comic like this, and Jeff Keane even asked her friend why she liked it so much, saying “It’s not a ‘cool’ comic strip”. Lynda posted this reply on her blog:
“Dearest Jeffy K,
Know this: Love is ALWAYS cool.
Cousin Lynda B.”
Melbourne-based artist Grant Gronewold aka HTML Flowers (previously featured here) explores life with chronic illness through a series of narrative comics and personal drawings.
Living with Cystic Fibrosis himself, Gronewold is particularly interested in how corporations use charities related to life-threatening medical conditions to market themselves, often turning young patients into unwitting mascots. Check out more images as well as excerpts from the second issue of his comic strip “No Visitors” below!
