Sin


This time around, I'll be reviewing Sin, a webcomic by Drake Tsui, a freelance illustrator from Canada. Sin is the tale of a post apocalyptic world where the world is under a totalitarian government and the people are split up in a rigid class system. With resources becoming scarcer humanity faces a bleak future, unless something can be done.



The story follows two groups of people, one a group of freedom fighters with a mysterious agenda, and another, a group of outlaws, just trying to eke out a living away from the oppressive government.

Dream*Scar


It would seem that I am most drawn to comics (ha ha! “Drawn” to comics! Oh, I crack myself up!) that have an element of the fantastical about them. I'm sure that at some point I will write about a “slice of life” comic, but today is not that day.

So let's talk Dream*Scar! Created by Heather Meade, Dream*Scar is a fantasy webcomic set in a post-modern alternate reality, where the creatures of myth (vampires, werewolves, dragons, and so on) are real. In fact, their existence became public knowledge some twenty years before the comic takes place.


The story follows Vix, a regular high school student. Or is she? Weird and tragic things start happening around her and she keeps having the strangest dreams. When something horrible happens at her school, she is forced to flee her family, her school, and her friends, everything that she has ever known, and follow that mysterious guardian angel that has been looking out for her her entire life.

Updates, yeah!

Ok, so after an awful time in my life known as finals or alternately, end of term, Webcomics, Yeah! shall be updated once more!

Expect to see more awesome comics shortly, like Dream*Scar, which is next on my list of comics to review. Also, Webcomics, Yeah! will soon be seeing a facelift and redesign and a general overhaul, so keep your eyes peeled.

A final update: as it is now May 11, Final Arcanum (my review can be found here) is now updating again, as the artist has now finished college. Congratulations, Stephanie Stober! Also resuming updates is Next Town Over, which shall once again pick up the tale of Black and Hunter, tomorrow, May 12.
