A Month of Webcomics – Crazy Cal Presents

All throughout May, I spotlighted a different webcomic.

Enough to easily do THREE Month of Webcomics (and heck, I’m sure if I ever did another month, I’d get enough to do three more!). So obviously I couldn’t spotlight them all. Here is an archive of the webcomics that I DID do a spotlight on.

We finish the month with Crazy Cal Presents, a very fun comic anthology by Rob Peters, where he writes and draws a series of different strips in all different genres (all “all-ages” stuff, though and with a general humorous approach to all of them). Peters is a very strong cartoonist, and as a result, no matter what the genre is, you get a strongly written and drawn comic book story.
