Shiny Webcomic Thursday - Marlowe the Monster

Meet Marlowe the monster.  He's cute.  He's shy.  And oh yeah, he's single.  There is a catch though - he lives with his mom.  She might be a little attached.  This guy is just one of the quirky creatures you'll meet in Marlowe the Monster by Shing Yin Khor.

Before you say it, yes I know, it's photographs.  Sometimes I do notice the obvious.  It is not a traditional pencilled, inked, and colored comic.  Don't judge or hold that against Marlowe, okay?  No monster bigotry is allowed.

I came across Marlowe and his creator at Long Beach Comic Con.  I decided to buy the printed issue of the webcomic in about two seconds.  It grabbed me that quickly.  I like monsters, I like photos, I like funny and the comic has all of these things.  Each comic is situational.  We get a glimpse into Marlowe's life.  You get to meet his mom, his sister's kids, and his dates.  All of the monster designs are wacky/wonderful and right on that line between creepy and adorable.  Each scene is set amidst dollhouse furniture and lots of tiny polymer clay creations.  Tiny food, tiny books, tiny pots and all of them are lovely.  Have I mentioned I'm a sucker for miniature things and clay?  The photographs are accompanied by just the right words to make you laugh or say "Awww, poor Marlowe."

Just to make sure you get it, I think this series is brilliant.  I'm kinda in love.  I ask that you go over, click through a few strips, and give it a chance.  I just bet you'll like it.  Oh, and if you happen to be going to Designer Con 2010 on November 20 in Pasadena, CA, Shing Yin Khor has a table there. 

Check out the first strip of monster shenanigans right here.

Marlowe the Monster
Updates every Wednesday

Want your webcomic to be featured here or know of one you think I would love?
The requirements to be featured are few, but both are very important to me. The webcomic has to be shiny and updated on a consistent basis. It is not as easy as you would think to find a webcomic that's updated when the creators intend it to be. It can be newer webcomics or ones that have been around for months or years. Email me the info.

  2. The monster could be huge and he is eating the majority of the nourishment on the earth. The saint needs to come in and make all the difference before the world starves! online homework help websites The beast could be making atomic weapons, and the legend needs to stop him before he annihilates the world...
