In a time when comic book prices are high, you may feel the need to cut down on your weekly comic book spending; but that doesn’t mean you have to cut down on your weekly comic book reading. There are comic book artists who have their work available online for your visual enjoyment.

The Shiga Books website refers to artist Jason Shiga who won the 2004 Eisner award for “Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition”.  The site not only highlights Shiga’s work, but also links the reader up with some of Jason’s favorite web comics.

My Shiga Favorites:


Based on a true story, it’s a hilarious mix of high level mathematics and all out Dirty Harry gunfights. I read through the entire book in one evening and could not put it down. If you enjoy films like “Hot Fuzz” that pair up serious action sequences followed by smart satiric humor, then you’ll enjoy Bookhunters


A man struggles to escape from a telephone booth encased in concrete, and figure out how he came to be there in the first place. One of the most innovative approaches to the literary dilemma of how to write a story about a man trapped in a closet. Shiga uses the the phone as a way to perpetuate the story’s plotline, all the while keeping the reader on the edge of their seat.
