Hello! My name is Alkyone and in this article I’m going to explore two indie comics. Both of these comics are comedy. The first one has small chapters that are complete stories and the second one is in strip form.
So, let’s begin with the first comic, whose title is Princess Rosalinde.
This comic is very simple, and at the same time very sweet, as the princess and protagonist of this story is a small girl with a big fantasy, which is basically the content of these comics: how this little girl sees herself as a princess, and what kind of fantastical adventures she is living through simple daily actions.
Due to the simple nature of this comic, there’s no meaning in talking about character development and all that stuff. Nevertheless, each little story is extremely creative and adorable. In regards to the art style, this comic had changed artist for a small period of time but BOTH of these art styles perfectly fit the mood of this comic. I personally like how the colors have this watercolor effect and I also like how the shadows and the highlights are colored.
And finally, in regards of this comic’s updates, unfortunately it does not have a steady schedule. There’s a link at the end of this article if you wish to read it.
And let’s go to the second comic, whose title is Safely Endangered Comics, which is a strip comic.
These little comics are the type of comics you simply can’t stop reading! They are extremely funny and they usually have an unexpected ending; the final panel, in which the punch line is placed, almost always catches us off guard. Moreover, the theme of these comics, as well as the situations that describe, can be unbelievably surreal and funny but at the same time they can make us ponder and question and philosophize about the deep concerns and difficult situations that any lifeless object or animal (if it had the human logic and cunningness) undergoes on a daily basis.
In such a way, something that I really like about these comics is the fact that their protagonists are NOT just humans or animals… In these comics, every lifeless object can have a voice, such as the balloons, the toilet paper, the glass and the rocks, among others.
Now, in regards to the visual aspect of it, the art style of this comic is as simple as it should be for a strip comic. Its first few pages had bold lines, but the lineart quickly changed to thinner lines, which actually helps the eye in reading these comics quicker. Moreover, the colors are flat, which is another thing that helps in their easy and quick reading.
I overall like the element of surprise used in these comics and I honestly admire the fact that there have been more than 500 of these comics, and to this day they haven’t stopped being funny or authentic.
Finally, in regards to the updates of this comic, this comic updates a new page every Monday and Wednesday.
