No Planes or Supermen Here

Hey, all, happy Tuesday! It may still be winter here, but we are inching ever closer to spring and all of the bugs and allergies it brings. I prefer winter, is what I’m saying. But in any case, at least we can enjoy our comics all year round!

Riot Recommendations

Today’s Riot Rec theme is: birds! Maybe don’t watch any Hitchcock movies before picking up these comics…

The Gullfather Birdsy Seagull cover

The Gullfather: Birdsy Seagull by Jeff Sikaitis and Jake Wheeler

Birdsy Seagull and his gang are determined to rule Shoretown with an iron wing (or have a nice lunch and take a nap, whatever is easier). But when the local humans start stepping out of line, can this band of misfits and layabouts get it together in time to protect what is theirs?

The Flamingo cover

The Flamingo by Guojing

Through stunningly beautiful illustrations and almost no words, this comic depicts a young girl’s magical visit with her grandmother. Shortly after arriving, she finds a flamingo feather with an amazing story attached to it — a story that will bring grandmother and granddaughter closer together.

I have to fly off now, but I’ll be back on Thursday with more comics for you to feather your nest with!
