Comic’s name: Blue Yonder
Creators: Richard Pulfer, Luke Perks and Diego Diaz.
What is the comic about: A teen superhero on the run starts a new life and searches for his family in a city full of former superheroes.
How is comic drawn: Very expressive, semi-cartoony style in the same vein as Darwyn Cooke and Michael Avon Oeming
How often updated: new pages every Wednesday.
What else does the website offer: There’s a comix blog by Pulfer that offers some cool opinions on the industry.
What do I think of the site’s overall design: The site is about as clean as you can get. Only two big banner ads to speak of, so there’s no clutter, and the decorative art is well-placed and unobtrusive. The ever-changing “updates Wednesdays” pic is a nice touch. Very simple, but well-designed site.
What do I like about the strip: I’m always a sucker for “Heroes are the norm” stories like Astro City and Welcome to Tranquility. Seeing how guys with world-breaking powers try to coexist with each other in a “normal” setting fascinates me. This story is no different.
ESRB Rating: ages 13 and up
Why should YOU read it: If you ever wondered how superheroes live when they’re not fighting crime, this is the story for you.
