Review by David Ferguson Created by Gareth Gowran and Sadhbh Lawlor Ok. So I have been intending to look at webcomics for a while so I am finally going to review one. I’ve picked this one for 2 reasons: 1) co-creator Gareth Gowran contacted me made me aware of its existence and 2) once I […]
I wanted to take tonight to spotlight two online strips of Ollie Longuet. Residing in Kinvara, Co. Galway, he has two strips that are availble to view online called sheep Mentality and The Adventures of Megapixel. As Ollie told ICN regarding Sheep Mentality, “It can be best described as a the attempts of a surfing flock […]
I wanted to spotlight the work of Merryman, an artist whose work can be found over at http://merryman1975.weebly.com/ Having done a number of strips for ‘Sin’, the NUIG student newspaper, I wanted to show some samples of his work which you can see below.
Little bit of self-promotion. It seems like everyone’s doing a Cú Chulainn comic these days, but I’ve been at it for five years, less a month and a bit. That’s how long it’s been since I started serialising The Cattle Raid of Cooley online, a page a week, every Wednesday (with a few breaks) – […]
Paul H. Tubb’s Stanley launched on July 1st and has several strips up for viewing right now. Follow the link and take a look for yourself at the eccentric character. http://stanley-comic-strip.com/Current_Strip.html
We reported last year that the creators of Cyanide & Happiness, among them Belfast’s Dave McElfatrick, were shopping their critically acclaimed webcomic to various television stations with Comedy Central reportedly most interested in picking up the stip for an animated run. On thier website, they said earlier this year that they ‘ talked to TV networks over […]

I’ve highlighted this site before but in case some missed it here is a fantastic idea on a popular comic strip by Dan Walsh. “Garfield Minus Garfield is a site dedicated to removing Garfield from the Garfield comic strips in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle. It is […]
Have you been over to visit Space Avalanche recently? http://www.spaceavalanche.com/
http://www.theholynumbers.com REVIEW: (SOME SPOLIERS) Tommie Kelly’s new webcomic, The Holy Numbers began in earnest this week revealing an astonishing religious themed story upon the masses. Tommie was kind enough to let me read the first chunk of story and I must say for those who are following, you are in for a real treat. Beginning with […]
Paddy Brown’s webcomic The Cattle Raid of Cooley, the award-winning adaptation of the ancient Irish epic, took a bit of a breather for a few weeks when it reached the end of chapter 6. Now it’s back, rested and reinvigorated, ready to launch into chapter 7! The first six chapters are still available to read […]
County Clare artist John Cullen begins a new venture tomorrow when his new webcomic written by SFX’s Rob Power will begin a weekly webcomic on the popular pop culture web site SFX. Cullen, coming off a big achievement where he completed 365 consecutive art blog posts ending last year, has provided ICN with exclusive art sans […]
John White, the man who brought you Star Wars age 9, in which he reconstructed the whole of Star Wars as a webcomic out of his childhood drawings, is at it again. This time, it’s Alien age 11. A slightly older John takes on a more adult science fiction film, Ridley Scott’s Alien.

The online con will have a virtual artists alley, video conference calls, Q & A’s and more. You can follow the link below to get […]
I wish here to highlight Dublin’s Dan Walsh’s webcomic Garfield minus Garfield. As the site explains about its intentions; “Garfield Minus Garfield is a site dedicated to removing Garfield from the Garfield comic strips in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle. It is a journey deep into the […]
I wanted to throw a spotlight on Northern Ireland writer/letterer Tony McVeigh’s webcomic Better Angels. The strip is drawn for Tony by artist Jordan Kroeger. Going steadily since July of last year it tells the story of Faith Emory and her colorful cast of friends, family and jerks (angelic, demonic and otherwise). Updated three times a […]
I just wanted to highlight the latest edition of Space Avalanche titled Born Into Servitude, a webcomic which as usual throws up great strips from creator Eoin Ryan. http://www.spaceavalanche.com/
Cyanide and Happiness, the cynical stick man webcomic by Americans Kris Wilson, Rob DenBleyker and Matt Melvin and Coleraine’s own Dave McElfatrick (one of Dave’s strips above), is in development as a half hour animated show at Comedy Central, with all four cartoonists as executive producers. They’ve already been making animated shorts – here’s their YouTube […]
Andy Luke alerts me to a new webcomic - Better Angels, by Belfast writer Tony McVeigh and American artist Jordan Kroeger. Early days, but it seems to be a superhero comic based in Christian mythology, with the main character, Faith, having her angelic powers awakened by an encounter with another angel, and finding she’s being pursued […]
After going AWOL for a couple of weeks, The Cattle Raid of Cooley returns with a new instalment. Dubthach’s taunting has done the trick, but the Morrígan hasn’t given up. You might also want to read the interview I’ve done with Dublin underground paper Rabble about the series.
Spanish artist Benito Gallego (no relation to Blas Gallego) has taken on a bit of Irish mythology, which he’s freely adapted from a passage of Flann O’Brien’s At Swim-Two-Birds, over at DeviantArt.
Faraday is back! And worried by the news…
They think it’s all over – but Dubthach has other ideas…
John A. Walsh serialised the first 62 pages of his graphic novel, Go Home Paddy, on the web between March 2010 and March 2011. In response to anti-immigrant prejudice he encountered in the Boston Irish-American community, he wanted to remind people that the Irish in America were once an immigrant group looked down on and […]
