During the worst of the pandemic, we here at comicon.com took the time to champion a good few independent creators creating comics without the backing of big publishers such as Image Comics, Dark Horse and Vault Comics. And so, on this new comic book day and every subsequent one going forward, we thought we would revisit this with a selection of previews for all new comics available online through comiXology.
So, in this inaugural new column we select three top picks for new books coming out today and available through comiXology.
Webster the Spider-Monkey #1 (Ah Yeah! Comics)
Written and illustrated by Art Baltazar
“Secreted Origins! – The secret origin issue!!! Webster reflects on what has happened to him and his friends. But one of his pals is not ready to reminisce. Next enters the villain… Doctor Octoplatypus! Looks like he has something against our hero Let’s hope his first issue won’t be his last!! Written, drawn, and created by award winning Famous Cartoonist Art Baltazar. True story.”
What connection, if any, do they have to local writer Emma Bates and a small town street called.. Lowry Walk?”
