This week’s comic in question is the super-cute and entertaining Sister Claire by Elena Barbarich.
Claire is a novice nun looking for her place in the convent as well as the world at large. Her perky, upbeat, klutzy and cat-loving ways are out of place among her fellow nuns, and she finds herself getting into more trouble than she bargains for when a blue-skinned blonde pops out of the convent toilet and informs her that she’s pregnant with the next messiah.
What follows is a cheery adventure involving evil cats and blue toilet-cherubs. It’s a very cute, quirky comic that seems to be headed in the right direction. The art is distinctly anime/powerpuff girl-esque, and the story telling works for the art and the format.
This webcomic is a little different than some of the others I’ve featured. For one, it’s relatively new, so there’s not a whole decade’s worth of archives to get through if you want to jump in. Second, it’s done in a format that is more like a digital comic book than some of the other webcomics, so it’s one you have to stick with to follow the story.
Overall, I think Sister Claire is a good new addition to my bookmark list, and I’m excited to see where it goes. Sister Claire updates Mondays and Thursdays.
