I don't make plugs on this site often these days (so busy!), but I wanted to mention a comic called Atomic Robo. It's not a webcomic, but there are some free comics up on the web, so take a look! Also worth a look is their list of simple rules for things they'll never do in Robo, a list that often informs my own approach. There are 5 trade paperbacks currently out, all of which I own and I've read and reread. Each story is self-contained and fun, so you can jump on at any time. And it's all ages! Which always surprises me - a comic this smart being accessible to kids.
I find that webcomics readers don't necessarily identify as comics readers, but believe me when I say that the spirit of webcomics is alive and well in Atomic Robo - as it should be, considering that Brian Clevinger is webcomics alumni. Give it a look!
Anyway, bottom line: we're Atomic Robo fans. So when Brian and Scott Wegener (Team Robo's artist) asked Yuko to do some pages, she was understandably thrilled! After she submitted those, Brian and Scott asked her to ... well, let me just quote Yuko's Tumblr,
For an upcoming issue, Brian and Scott requested that I (and a few of their other female artist friends) design 50’s fighter pilot versions of ourselves. This is stupidly exciting and I’m stupidly excited. Omigosh omigosh omigosh I’m gunna be in Atomic Robo
On that note, we're out! Catch you Thursday!
