7 Talented Web Comic Artists to Follow on Google+
The visual beauty of images on Google+ means that it's not just a great place for photographers to shine, but also serves as a befitting promotional space for web comic artists. Below, 7 talented individuals who have utilized the Google+ platform.
+Ryan Estrada made a name for himself on Google+ when he created the very first comic to explain that Google+ would not be ripping artists off with their Terms of Service. Since then, he's gone on to create more Google+ exclusive tutorials and comics, demonstrating why Google+ is awesome, and how other artists can use it to promote their work.
+Matthew Inman's work The Oatmeal has been showcased just about everywhere. His comics frequently comment on the state of the web, and he always seems to know exactly what's annoying you at this very moment.
+Randall Munroe is the hyper-intelligent, incisive creator behind the stick figure comic xkcd, which covers nerd jokes in a way that's not only accessible, but often really insightful and funny. On Google+ he wrote a detailed, reflective post dissecting why public gender disclosure on the Google+ profile was a bad decision, and Google+ eventually reversed that initial requirement.
+Alex Heberling draws and writes a comic called Alex's Guide to a Life Well-Lived, which focuses on slice-of-life details and lessons gleaned from her own life. She's a busy bee and also hosts podcasts on webcomics.
