Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
In honor of the holiday we thought we’d focus on a few digital and webcomics by Irish creators. Enjoy!
SUPERHERO HELP DESK – Creators Tree Farrell, Kerrie Smith and Hugo Boylan have created a light-hearted, fun comic about the unenviable job of providing information, troubleshooting problems, and providing support to the peculiar problems of super heroes and villains.
BUNSEN BUNNIES – A webcomic by Ann Harrison, John Clerkin and Derm McGuigan that follows the misadventures of a medical student Frank N. Stein as he tries to become a doctor; however, his plans go awry and soon he’s hip deep in mad science lab rabbits!
HENBRA COMICS – Over on the Henbra Comics site (and on FIVE HOUR BREAKFAST) creator Mike Heneghan, along with fellow collaborators, is posting a series of one-and-done gag strips that often poke fun at the mainstream world of superheroes and pop culture.
Bonus! If you’re into excellent comic art you might want to check out the Eclectic Micks; a collaborative art blog by Irish professional comic book artists Stephen Mooney, Stephen Thompson, Len O’Grady, Nick Roche, Will Sliney, Bob Byrne, Declan Shalvey and Tomm Moore.
There are, of course, a wealth of Irish creators making great comics. Got a favorite of your own? Leave a link in the comments!
