Webcomics: “dream*scar”, “Panthera”, and “Sidekicks”

Three webcomics I have really enjoyed.

dream*scar (by Heather Meade)

cover-1

“Set in a post-modern alternate reality, dream*scar shows a world where Unhumans, the creatures of myth and lore, live openly amongst humans. The Reveal only happened some 20 years ago, and so times are still relatively chaotic for everyone involved [racism especially rampant]. Amidst all this is a girl named Vix. She knows she is an unhuman, and she knows how they are treated, but she is lucky — she’s an empath, and her powers easily hidden. But when something goes wrong, and people end up dead, she begins to realize that there’s more to her abilities than she can even comprehend…”

Panthera (by D. Z. McRoy, Jeffrey Kan and Jon Bennett)

2008-10-28-2008-10-28

Four teenagers are granted elemental powers as well as the ability to turn into huge felines in order to fight the past sins of their recruiter, Richard Reynder, an eccentric yet brilliant teacher at Bridgedale High School. However, as they start to understand the nature of their abilities, a terrible truth starts to arise. An exciting story full of action, humor and drama.
