It’s Webcomics Wednesday! Every Wednesday, this “Comics by Niczka” blog showcases comics NOT by Niczka! And this week’s comic is…
This one is actually currently on hiatus while the author completely redoes it, but you can still read and enjoy the older version as it is rather long. It’s about… well, as far as I can tell, a self-centered jerk yet somehow still oh-so loveable girl named, well, Parakeet Jones. (For the record her brother is named Parrot) She’s a flapper who works for a shoe designer, with a rich best friend named Montana who keeps trying to set her up with the mysterious tall, dark, and handsome Edwardian. Also there’s a waiter named Morgan who seems to have a crush on her too, as far as I can tell.
Sounds like a fluffy romantic farce? WRONG. This is a well-written and well-drawn and often extremely surreal urban fantasy. Witches! Ghosts! Robots! And it turns out that one of the people Parakeet meets in the comic is a magic user, and another may even be a demon! It’s definitely worth checking out for the incredibly unique art alone, but the story is also top notch.
