The Top Graphic Novels On The Web
Top Graphic Novels Of The Web
While working up the nerve to start working on my own Graphic Novel, I joined the forum of Mr. Jason Brubaker over at reMINDblog.com and makinggraphicnovels.com. I was only a member for a few short weeks before restarting other projects. I have learned so much and awakened much more that had fallen asleep over the past twenty-five years of dormant artwork.
I feel like I owe these guys some publicity and more traffic to their own efforts. There are more than these that I want to showcase too, so keep watching this place, more are on their way!

I hold no rights to this work, (other than my own art at the left) it is completely for the furthering of these awesome artists careers in this field. Should they complain, I will remove them from this page, but I hope they don't! I owe them so much.
reMIND - by Jason Brubaker
This guy is first and foremost for me. He inspired me to put some of my written stories to graphic novel. His style had to grow on me a bit, but now I am waiting on each and every panel.
I'm not going to put any spoilers here, so I'll not say anything that you couldn't get from his excellent work in the first page or so. It is a story about Sonya and her cat Victuals. Or is it her cat? Read it to find out what happens! Very cool story.
He is put the first issue out a while back and is very close on the next one being ready. He's even putting together a box set of both issues!
Besides that he has some excellent tutorials on his blog/site! Check him out!
Misfile - By Chris Hazelton
I have not ventured into his eighteen published graphic novels, yet. I will be adding a review as soon as start though. Very interesting traditional manga-ish comic style. Looks very promising though and he's a great guy.
Keep an eye out here for more or shoot just go read it for yourself!
How To Draw Graphic Novel Style
Wormworld Saga - By Daniel Lieske
Simply put, a great artist with a great vision and a great presentation. I can't say enough about how I feel about Daniel's work. Of course I can say that about all of these artists!
(I am so far behind!.... sigh)
Anyway, there is nothing I can say that you won't find out for yourself in a quick visit!
In Maps And Legends - artist - Niki Smith, writer - Michael Jasper
Now as for this one being an online comic, they have gone to publish the third issue so they no longer offer the comic online other than for purchase. But I have to say, yet another very gripping style and uses reMIND's style of background texture. I will be purchasing these books as soon as possible!
But, first I would drop by the blog for your first experience with this graphic novel.
From the site: "In Maps & Legends is a 10-issue contemporary fantasy comic with hints of science fiction and steampunk. The comic won the Nov. 2009 competition hosted by DC Comics imprint Zuda Comics, where it ran in 2010 until the Zuda site closed."
Athra - By Nathaniel Sullivan
I have fallen in mad envious love with this guys pen style. I have to use this technique on one of my stories! So dramatic and no color, but it doesn't need it! And another great guy to boot!
Definitely make a stop at this one.
The Details Of Drawing A Graphic Novel
Spy6Teen - Simmons, Keawekane, Moore, Fowler, Kirkbride
Another bunch of talented guys teamed up to make a superhero/super spy graphic novel. All I can say is again, You must go see to appreciate! Another in print comic now, that had to recover from the close of the digital comic mecca, Zune. But, you are in luck, it is still in digital glory! Click through and read on!
These guys just keep them coming and I feel bad for putting them at the end! Another spectacular Graphic Novel. Trent definitely needs some love for this awesome project!
There are many more on the way! Stay tuned and let me know you were here!
