Comics I Love – BACK

 Posted by Bob the Hamster on January 2nd, 2021

In the year of 2020, one of my favorite ways to relax and de-stress was to read web comics and graphic novels. So for New Years 2021, here are some of my favorites, and why I love them

BACK – by Anthony Clark and KC Green

Why I Love It

BACK is the tale of a mysterious cowgirl who traverses a desolate landscape fraught with peril in order to fulfill her destiny to END THE WORLD. Somehow it feels like Stephen King’s Gunslinger by way of Garfield — No, I kid, the fantastic artwork in BACK does not bear any comparison to the relatively dull Garfield, other than the fact that Agatha’s eyeballs do rather resemble the lasagna cat’s for whatever reason (my delight. The reason is my delight.)

Another thing I love is the series of increasingly epic battles with the evil King’s bizarre henchmen, and I would be remiss if I failed to mention the creepy and/or silly cults, and the way Clowns are treated like a fantasy race a la Elves and Orcs.

It’s wonderful, and it is very close to reaching its final conclusion, so if you like comics with a well-planned arc from beginning, middle, and end, with satisfying conclusion, read BACK. That conclusion is almost here, and I can hardly wait!

Comics I Love – Harpy Gee

Harpy Gee – by Brianne

Why I Love It

It’s a story about Harpy, an Elf who is living in a human town, and it is full of adventures, friendship, crushes, magic, silly delicious food nonsense, and both battles with monsters, and trying to keep your friend’s secret that they ARE a monster!

The artwork is vibrant and colorful, and full of life and joy. The character’s facial expressions and body language especially make me love this comic. They all emote happiness, disappointment, excitement, concern, annoyance so wonderfully.

It is also relentlessly cute! Even the horrible monsters whom Harpy occasionally needs to battle are simply adorable!
