Graphic novels are great. Unfortunately they can also be really expensive, so online comics are super useful, when you don’t want to break the bank. Here are three online comics that I’m loving reading at the moment.
1. Lore Olympus
I’m a sucker for retellings of the Hades and Persephone myth. I’m not sure what it is, but something about that pairing gets me every time. Which is where Lore Olympus comes in.
Updated once a week, this is an updated version of Persephone and Hades, where everyone is still a god but they also have mobile phones and business cards and limos that vengeful love goddesses can stow drunk spring godesses in.
I really love the art style and the artist’s use of space in the strip, and I find myself checking for an update even when I know it won’t update till Sunday. I’m really interested to see where it’s going to go.
2. The Substitutes
There’s always a chosen one. Or a chosen group of friends. But what would happen if they were beaten to the punch by people who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time? The Substitutes follows two groups of three friends. One, a band of adventurers in a fantasy world poised to take up magical artifacts on their quest, the other, a band of friends from our world who nab the artifacts first, by accident.
I love the switching between our world and the fantasy world, and with updates every other Tuesday, I’m always excited for the next page to be uploaded.
Fairy tales always have a fairy godmother. But how do fairy godmothers get to be godmothers? Passing exams, of course. And Periwinkle desperately wants to be a godmother and help some humans out. Only problem is, she’s the only fairy in fairyland who doesn’t have any magic.
Periwinkle is a fantastic heroine, throwing herself into every challenge that comes her way. I’m also jealous of her outfits. Peritale updates every Monday and Thursday which means there is plenty of comic goodness to keep you going all through the
