Back in the day, I used to read about 30 webcomics a day. That was until I realized that 99% of them were about two wacky roommates who played videogames. I cut back on my webcomics to a small handful and it takes a miracle of coolness to make me read a new one.

Which brings us to my favorite new thing, Super Coven. Written and drawn by Tenebrous Kate, it tells the story of a group of friends who play music and are currently investigating the possibly true story of Werewolf Frogman. It begun in October and updates every Monday with an extra strip on the first Friday of the month. Currently the strip is at a horror convention where the characters have tracked down the writer of Werewolf Frogman. 

It is hard for me to be objective about this webcomic because it hits all my sweet spots. It involves a garage metal band, it discusses weird conspiracy theories, the characters are real people and not cut from the every-other-damn-webcomic mold, the art is gorgeous and most of the humor derives from things in the background. It baffles me that it took this long to get a webcomic that is the equivalent of a Euro-grindhouse approach to webcomics. There are hundreds of blogs dedicated to these subjects but never a webcomic until now. It is the kind of place any of my characters could cross over into and that it pretty damn cool.

So check out Super Coven. It strays into NSFW art so enjoy this in the privacy of your own lair.

I give it Five out of Five Pam Griers.
