When Farah, star of the webcomic Shattered Starlight, was younger, she was able to deal with her problems by hitting them with her magical hockey stick.

In the world of Mari Costa’s webcomic Peritale, the most exciting job a fairy can have is that of godmother, making sure that fairytales come true. Few want that job more than young Periwinkle, but there’s one hitch: She has no magical powers.
Long ago, humans thrived in the great city, using golem-like demons to do their bidding. But after the demons rebelled, they forced humans to abandon the city and live on the fringes, dreaming of the day they’d reclaim their home.
Boulet has done it again. The cartoonist’s latest installment is a quasi-animated pixel comic that challenges the notion that science has somehow robbed the universe of poetry.

Sarah Graley’s webcomic Pizza Witch is as silly and fun as the title suggests. It’s all about Roxy, a witch who brews magical pizzas that make people fall in love with her.

In the year AD 62, the exiled Roman Empress Claudia Octavia was sentenced to death by ritual suicide by her former husband Nero.

Chloé C.’s webcomic Headless Bliss reveals what happens to the stories we make up after we forget about them.

The comic is by turns funny and sad, but it’s also just plain gorgeous.
You really can find anything on the Internet, and in the case of Toril Orlesky’s webcomic Hotblood!, that’s a pretty cool phenomenon. After all, where else are you going to the tale of a centaur trying his luck in the American West and his attraction to his caddish, amoral employer?

Miyuli’s webcomic Lost Nightmare has the feel of a malevolent children’s book, one where the classically wicked characters, like the Bogeyman, are less frightening than the luminous shepherd known as the Sandman. And a sweet little nightmare named Ink is about to learn the truly scary aspects of the dreamscape.
On its face, Natalie Riess’ webcomic Snarlbear sounds like a candy-coated fantasy: a young girl is transported to the Rainbow Dimension, where she ends up fighting monsters and trying to help a cursed unicorn prince reclaim his throne. But the world Riess creates is actually much more sinister.
Samantha, the young heroine of Angelica Maria’s webcomic Solstoria, wants two things in her life: She wants to become a knight and she wants to find out what happened to her older brother, an alchemy student who went missing.
