I hope you enjoyed my Hourly Comic Day comics this year (in case you didn’t see them, they’re here).
And if that whetted your appetite for this peculiar artform, here are some of my favourites from other people.
It was much easier to find the good ones this year than in previous years – it feels like more people are taking part, or maybe it’s just that I’ve had another year of making connections with comics people on social media, and I know where to find them… in any case, enjoy!
(Be aware, though, if you are a sensitive snowflake: some of them contain strong language and/or scenes of a racy nature)
Sarah Winifred Searle
Swinsea offers you lovely pencil crayon, fluffy cats and honest feelings.
Kristen Haas Curtis
Kristen (“American cartoonist in Switzerland”) tweeted me to say that we’d both felt parental guilt at exactly the same point of the day. :)
Robin William Scott
Robin William Scott is a new name to me but I really like his style. As far as I’m aware, these are only visible on Twitter at the moment.
Broken Frontier has gathered together Tillie’s comics, which I’m in awe of, because she actually managed to get something of a story arc in there, as well as having such an effortless-looking style.
Danny also managed to do something a little bit above and beyond with hers. Pfft, all these smart people.
Lucy‘s been doing hourly comic day since 2011, so no surprise that she’s also managed to raise the bar with a nice underlying analogy.
Vera is another new name to me, with a nice line in self-deprecating humour.
Joe‘s skilled drawings are always a favourite.
And of course Dan is a perennial.
Here’s Jeremy taking a loose line to the extreme — also features drawing while walking, which is impressive.
Moar Moar MOAR
And if that little lot wasn’t enough for you, surprise! Here’s Zainab Akhtar’s selection which includes several that I haven’t mentioned above.
What? You want even more MORE?
