Webcomic Pick: The Hero Busine$$
The Baltimore Comic-Con is now old news, but one of the cooler things that happened while I was there debuting Lilith Dark #1 (now available in the LD Shop) was having the opportunity to have my work on display right next to a true webcomic great, Bill Walko. Bill’s a great guy, and it was a pleasure to meet him. I even picked up a copy of his comic The Hero Business, an online comic about the marketing that goes into being a superhero. The tagline says it all, “With great power comes great marketability”.
Walko delivers in the art dept, with great clean linework and bright, smart use of color, reminiscent of the current crop of hit Nickelodean cartoons. The writing is witty, with plenty of superhero puns and all of the obvious comicbook cliches that you’d expect a hero parody to have.
This is a great read, and I highly recommend that you give it a shot. Well drawn, funny, and it has super heroes. What more could you possibly want?
