Stay cool this summer with some fantastic community art from keii4ii, creator of Heart of Keol (featuring Marduk from The Ferrin, Michael from Michael, and Eve from Littlelight Asylum) as well as a summer-y summary of what’s washed up on our shores!

Application Season, Convention Appearances, and New Releases


Massive thanks to everyone who applied for SpiderForest membership! We’re carefully reviewing all the applications now and will be making our announcement about the results the last week of August. Remember that regardless of membership, our forum and Discord communities are open to everyone who wants to share their webcomic work and get feedback.

G Pike of Title Unrelated will be tabling at FlameCon in NYC August 18-19. Stop by and say hello!

Promises, Promises – a collection of three short stories and a novella in The Brothers Martin universe – is now published!! The collection follows Tom and Steve as they try to get on with their lives after the events of Plague. Not as easy as it sounds when someone threatens what they’re trying to build!
You can get your copy in print or on Kindle Ebook! Check out the Amazon Listing for more information!

New Chapters and Milestones

Chapter 9 of XII: Of Magic and Muses will drop on the 15th of August. You can also get the PDF on Gumroad here!

Supervillainous celebrated both its five year anniversary and 500th strip on July 20th!

Chapter 15 of LeyLines is the first step in a whole new journey as the story shifts from a comic to illustrated prose AND audio-book form. We give a big salute to the amazing comic work Robin has done, and look forward to the future of LeyLines and Robin’s other projects!


Soul’s Journey is coming to print very soon, with books available for order August 30th. For more info, check out this public Patreon post.

The new chapter of Michael – Jury of My Peers – began on July 2nd! Already in hot water with his folks and the school, now he has to worry about killing his social life too? Better than another outbreak of M219 however! Guess he’s going to have to suck it up and pray no one recognizes him.


Cat Legend is celebrating 15 years this month! We can hardly believe it’s been so long until we look back at the first pages!


Sunset Grill celebrates its tenth anniversary on August 4th. At the time she started it, Kat gave it six months. Guess this story has legs after all!


Kez of What it Takes will be traveling to a far away land (not really, just a few states away) for an internship and will be away from her dear, dear comic making set up for an entire month! Any art of any sort to post during mid August to mid September would be ever so appreciated. Don’t want to leave What it Takes readers hanging for too long! Send to warofwinds@gmail.com
Arbalest will be on break for the month of August, with updates resuming September 3.
Title Unrelated will be going on break again until late August or early September.
Beneath the Clouds is going on hiatus for a month from July 16 to August 20 so Caroline can go on holiday. In the meantime, enjoy some sketches from the trip to Japan which inspired her story!
Andy is off on a wild wilderness adventure, so I, Mummy will be on hold for August. Go outside, enjoy the summer and come back in September!
Castoff is gonna be taking a hiatus for a few weeks while Star is away from her computer traveling! The comic will be featuring guest art and return to regular updates next month!
