EDITOR’S NOTE; most of Nimona has been taken down and can only be read in physical book form. However, the first three chapters are still available to read online.
It’s officially the week of Halloween! So, what shall we dress up as this year?
A knight? A supervillain? A cyborg? How about a shark?
Oh, I know! Why not all of them.. at once!?
This is Nimona.
I am so sorry this is so late. I am such a terrible, irresponsible blogger.
Kids love dinosaurs. They love Godzilla and giant robots and space aliens. If they’re like me, they grow up on franchises like Pokemon, Digimon, and Monster Rancher. They draw fierce creatures and imagine them locked in epic battles for Justice, for the world, for sheer unadulterated awesomeness.
Kids, in short, love monsters. But what happens when a kid actually gets a monster of their own, one that they have to hide and care for on top of all the usual drama that comes with being a kid? What if that monster is literally a part of them?
This is Monster Pulse, by Magnolia Porter.
Alright, I’ll be honest – I can’t come up with a clever way to intro into the title. With that said, this week’s comic is…
Monster’s Garden, by Ash G.
Deep in the urban heart of Centro, the reigning heavyweight champion tended to his prized garden sanctuary. He enjoyed his solitary paradise in peace, until a simple act of kindness grows into the biggest challenge he has ever faced.
Luckily for the Kilo Monster, this time he will not be fighting alone.

Greetings, reader(s) and welcome back to Bedlam Reviews! This month we’re going to celebrate the “monsters” of webcomics. Be they social outcasts, unsung heroes, or simply unique, this month is all about those individuals who bring their own colorful – though sometimes dark – perspective to the world.
And as this month is about looking past first appearances, we’ll begin by revisiting…
Monsterkind, by Taylor C.
Hello reader(s) and welcome to another Fledgling Friday spotlight!
This week we get to meet
The Timeless, from Vivifica Studios.
In 2013, independent comic creators Jolene Houser, Dana Skvarek, and Andy Bohn banded together to form Vivifica Studios an “independent publisher of comics, short stories, and web-comics… from up-and-coming artists from all over the globe.”
Their flagship series, The Timeless, stars a pantheon of beings, each named after one of the signs of the western Zodiac. The comic follows these eponymous Timeless as they influence the world towards a particular goal. But is that goal salvation… or destruction?
In premise, The Timeless is very reminiscent of Neil Gaiman’s master series The Sandman (which I very recently finished yeah!). Some might even see this series as an imitation… which I’d have no problem with. It’d be great to have more stories like The Sandman and Neil Gaiman is a particularly bright star in the world of comics – shooting for that star only serves to show the ambition of the creators.
The art is a bit rough in places and the paneling’s very basic, but for a free webcomic, this is still a high quality production. I, for one, am most certainly interested in seeing more of it.
