Comics Wrap-Up - We're Drawbridges Closing

 

'Comics Wrap-Up' with lined-notebook-style background and speech bubbles containing heart symbols

It's Thursday. Let's get some awesome-sauce comics-y, superhero-y goodness!


Webcomics



I've been reading Cursed Princess Club (for free) over on WebToons, and I love it so much!

It's about Gwen, Princess of the Pastel Kingdom, who isn't conventionally physically attractive - something which comes to her attention in a devastating way when her father makes arrangements for her marriage.

By chance, she finds herself meeting the Cursed Princess Club - an affirming and positive group, dealing with a range of disabilities and unconvential physical appearances caused by magic curses.

The 'episodes' (which is what WebToons calls the pages, sections, whatever) then go on to casually destroy stereotypes left, right, and centre, while being super-fun and often wholesome (though there is some drama!)

(And I love Jamie - Gwen's femme-presenting brother who literally sparkles! He's amazing.)

It also literally comes with its own background music - I mean, how many comics come with their own background music?! Lol.

  1. I have actually made a webcomic before! I went to a really techy high school and they used to make us do them all the time for assignments.

    1. I don't know if that's lazy or innovative on the part of your teachers... maybe both! Lol :)
