Ashleigh Brilliant's POT-SHOTS are illustrated epigrams, never longer than 17 words. They are written in very simple English, so as to be easily translatable into other languages. In the process of creation, the words always come first, and (as is not the case with "cartoons"), they are capable of standing alone without requiring any illustration. But the illustrations add a special dimension to the finished product. They should be appropriate, but not too literal – more in the nature of commentary than of direct depiction, which makes creating and/or selecting illustrations one of the hardest parts of the work. There is no cast of characters, and the range of subject matter is virtually unlimited. Originality is considered an essential factor. What is said must be really worth saying, but, as far as possible, never actually have been said before. There can be humor, profundity, poignancy, whimsy or a combination of all these. Another criterion is that the material should have lasting value and be capable of being appreciated in other times and other cultures. Because of this stricture, there can be no rhyme, no rhythm, no puns, no idioms – in fact, none of the conventional wordplay that makes writing short expressions fun and easy. There can also be no intentional topical references. POT-SHOTS have appeared in many forms, with and without the original graphics, but their debut on GoComics is a totally new adventure.
Errant sallies in history, literature, and thought.

Sheldon is a weird, wonderful little strip...with geeky characters, all-ages storylines, and lots of pop-culture nerdiness. Twice nominated for "Best Humor" in the Eisner Awards, Sheldon centers on a wonderfully odd little family: A boy, his duck, and the grandfather that raises them both. But the strip is also famous for venturing away from the main cast and into stand-alone comics and storyline, too. So there’s occasional delightful weirdness.
A "shoecabbage" is a word in another language with the same sound as a word in English but with a different meaning. For example, in English a "shoe" is a covering for a foot, while in French "shoe" [spelled: chou] means "cabbage". Teresa Burritt and David Stanford’s single panel cartoon is both informative and entertaining!

When pictures of a naked corpse are left for processing, Bee’s curiosity goes into high gear. "...Like a Nancy Drew mystery adapted by Brian de Palma...He's a great illustrator, and he tells a convoluted story with economy and flair..." —Nick Hornby, The New York Times “Weirdness abounds in Shutterbug Follies—a giddy, splendid weirdness that makes the book a page-turner…It sits comfortably on a shelf between Daniel Clowes’s Caricature and Kim Deitch’s Boulevard of Broken Dreams.” —Marc Weidenbaum, The Comics Journal ➜ Email Jason Little This comic updates Monday & Thursday

Somewhere in this great nation is a top-secret government agency in charge of providing aid to America's nonhuman citizenry. Perpetually overworked and underpaid, these dedicated civil servants soldier on with a dedication exceeded only by their respective passions for heavy rifles, stylish footwear, and good sturdy squeaky toys. They're not our country's best nor our country's brightest, but to all the lost and lonely creations of misguided science wandering the wild places of this country, they are a beacon of minimum-wage hope. This is their story.

Christiann MacAuley's Sticky Comics is a humor comic about relationships, technology, eating, hangovers, work, caffeine, and other problems. Originally drawn on sticky notes starting in 2006, the comic is still handmade on paper, warts and all. Often it's funny, cute, and irreverent. And sometimes it's a little depressing. But endearingly so... right?

I get to cut loose and draw anything."

You don’t have to be an art lover to appreciate Steve’s sticking it to the man on a regular basis – especially when that man is someone like Caravaggio, who when you look a little closer, was really kind of a jerk.
