Webcomic Review #7 - The End Of The World



Tethered takes place in a war-torn Britain of the future, where exposure to free-roaming green vapors can induce
paranoia and hallucinations. Survivors scavenge badly-needed power sources from the last remaining robots in the
scorched wastelands. The protagonist Cara finds herself in a precarious situation, when she needs to rely on one
such android for his life-support system as they travel to newer, more hostile destinations.

 Updates once a week.

Soul To Call

Soul To Call starts after a uncertain calamity wipes out most of Earth's population, and demons from an alternate dimensions wreak havoc among those left alive. Out of some desperate yet unknown purpose, the young Avril attempts
to summon one of these creatures in order to make use of his precious fluids. Tormented and pursued by a cult and
the occult alike, it remains to be seen if both her and her captive new companion will make it out alive.

Updates twice a week.

Bicycle Boy

 Bicycle Boy features yet another cyborg, who this time wakes up in the
middle of the desert, struck with amnesia and surrounded by fresh cadavers.
Wayfaring on a salvaged bicycle, he searches for answers about
his very identity, assisted by a curiously helpful travel guide.
Along the way, they contend with savage foragers who are keen
on retrieving certain items that he has stowed away in his chassis.

 Updates once a week.

No End

It seems that nowadays you can't have a post-apocalypse story without at least a zombies roaming around somewhere.
That's more or less the setting of No End, where the undead serve either as a foreboding yet off-screen threat, or as disturbingly sentient bounty hunters. This may delight those who have already grown tired of the continuing zombie trend
in popular fiction, or disappoint those who are accustomed to works where the corpses are nothing more than
background decoration.

However, this might just be one of the best zombie webcomics that I have yet read, and I've read quite a few
(well, there's literally only a few of them). The art is appealing and the characters are endearing, and the more
mature themes and dialogue are much appreciated in the ongoing Age of Robert Kirkman.

 Updates in batches once a week.
