“Gaia : The odyssey of Ilias Oter and his friends” is a fantastic new webcomic that has been released by the creators of the comic strip Sandra and Woo. It deals with some students that are getting ready to graduate from the Academy of Cania that teaches both the martial and arcane arts. A school that will teach it’s students how best to deal with danger and prepare them for their life to come outside of the school. At the beginning we see the main characters as being Ilias, Lilith, Ryn, Alissa and Sandril. Each have their own unique and distinct personality, some of which clash quite a bit as seen in the conflict between Ilias and Sandril.
Sandril is the boyfriend of Lilith but Ilias wishes it was he who was her romantic interest. The main problem is the Lili, as Ilias calls her, sees him more as a very best friend instead of a romantic interest. At least he doesn’t push himself on her and doesn’t talk about her like Sandril. It is Sandril’s attitude that actually puts the two into a non lethal duel. I can see that these two are going to give a lot of interesting twists with the plot. Read more...

Discovered this webcomic a couple of years ago, when it first started as a link off of Multiplex. It’s a very fun story about a private high school filled with magical beings and monsters. The two main characters are two teen vampires, Nina and Layla Delacroix. Layla is the typical vamp teen, 16, not afraid of anything, except losing her popularity. She’s pretty and dark, and has hooked the hottest cat-boy in school, Kade. Nina is a vast contrast to her older sister. She’s 14, very, very innocent, overly cute. She won’t even drink blood, but may the gods help any chocolate that crosses her path. She was born on a Easter Sunday, and draws her nourishment from the decadent candy. With them is a naughty, perverted companion, Blair. Blair is a demon that is trapped in the body of a doll. The doll looks pretty tame, with its long golden hair and frilly blue dress, but the voice and the ideas that come from the doll are that of a lecherous male, like Happosai of Ranma 1/2. Blair is the instigator of much trouble for the Delacroix girls, but he’s not the only one who keeps them on their toes. Read more... (396 words, 1 image, estimated 1:35 mins reading time)
