Recently, I've been on a comic book kick (I'm sorry..."graphic novel" kick). In a recent issue of BATMAN DETECTIVE COMICS, I happened upon an interesting advertisement for a DC-sponsored website called Zuda Comics. Apparently it's a kind of talent search/YouTube...but for comics. There are a dozen or so, continually updated, independent comic books/strips. They range the gambit from romance (okay, they only have one of those) to horror/sci-fi. There are two that I think are absolutely worth checking out: HIGH MOON (vampire gunfighter who kills werewolves) and NIGHT OWLS (think THE X-FILES, set in the '30s--only funny).
You can view the comics in beautiful, full-screen glory (use your keyboard to flip through the pages). Check it out! It's free!
