Comics

Divided by company, but in no particular order otherwise.

Marvel Comics

  • Ms. Marvel, by C. Willow Wilson. An American-Pakistani teenager finds herself with superpowers, and decides to follow in the footsteps of her hero and idol Captain Marvel and starts to defend her hometown of Jersey City. (Teen. Racism, violence appropriate to the genre.)
  • Hawkeye, by Matt Fraction. What does Clint Barton, Hawkeye and member of the Avengers, do when he’s not on duty? He rescues dogs and saves the people of the apartment-building he lives in. Also, he has issues. His issues have issues.  He trains his apprentice, Kate Bishop, the other Hawkeye. Maybe even the better Hawkeye. (Teen).
  • Hawkeye, by Kelly Thompson. Kate Bishop, the better Hawkeye, moved to Los Angeles and became a private eye (well, after she has the money to pay the fee). Things go south from there. (Teen.)

Image Comics

  • Bitch Planet, by Kelly Sue Deconnick. Set in a not-so-distant future, women who don’t conform to the norm get sent off-planet to a correctional institute known colloquially as Bitch Planet. These are their stories. (Mature, for violence, nakedness, sexual assault, the patriarchy.)
  • Pretty Deadly, by Kelly Sue Deconnick. It’s weird and wonderful and is about Ginny, a Reaper. (Teen. Some gory scenes.)
  • Rat Queens, by Kurtis J. Wiebe. A group of four women hirelings in a sword and sorcery-world. (Teen. There is some full-frontal nakedness.)
  • Ody-C, by Matt Fraction. A genderbent, spacefaring version of the Odyssey. The gods are dicks, there’s a lot of story-elements from other places, and the art will blow your fucking mind. (Mature, for rape, violence, nakedness.)
  • Sex Criminals, by Matt Fraction. What would you do if every time you have an orgasm you can stop time? Susie and John use their ability to rob banks. (Mature, mainly for nakedness and scenes of a sexual nature.)

Webcomics

  • Sinfest. Human nature, with angels, Buddhist dragons, and devils. (SFW)
  • Something*Positive is the story of a few friends – namely Davan, Aubrey, PeeJee, and Jason – and their daily lifes, struggles, and the occasional mass catgirl cataclysm. It’s just a comic about trying to live you life and bringing a few friends with you so you don’t kill anyone. At least, not anyone you might get in trouble for. (NSFW, depending on how you feel about bad language and erotic callcentres catering to nerds.)
  • xkcd. A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language. (SFW.)
  • Oglaf (NSFW for nakedness and scenes of a sexual nature). A weekly comedic webcomic centered on a medieval fantasy realm which is decidedly sexual in nature.
