Martians, Nazis, Ghosts and Demons



Since January 2010, Westward has published a full color comic strip every weekday. Westward is a serial space adventure about mankind's first reckless steps into deep space in a starship torn by conflicting agendas and deep conspiracies. Complex and mind-bending, the story is inspired by classic sci-fi but delves into a tangled web of intrigue, revelations and existential horror.

As Westward nears its 1,000th strip, a Kickstarter campaign has been launched to fund its further expansion: The production of not one, but two full color comic strips every weekday. The goal is to tell a parallel story, related to the main Westward storyline but distinct in tone and setting: A post-apocalyptic supernatural family drama.



If a daily dose of original sci-fi adventure appeals to you, and a double dose appeals even more, check out westwardcomic.com and its October Kickstarter campaign, where you can watch a video explaining more about the project's history and goals. Westward is completely free, and its entire archive of nearly 1,000 strips is open for viewing.

This might be moved to an art forum, but I wanted to say, nice work...

Re: Martians, Nazis, Ghosts and Demons

I respect your judgement, Borgminister! I posted it in this forum because Westward is original sci-fi published for entertainment, not fan art of an existing franchise. It does make copious use of tropes, but always with a twist as the readers will attest.

So this isn't a History Channel thread?

I thought it was going to be one of Readyandwilling's threads.

For a more comedic space opera that still deals with "big idea" science, check out Schlock Mercenary. It's a great webcomic that publishes 7 days a week. Been reading it for a couple years now.
