Writer David Gallaher and artist Steve Ellis are no strangers to the world of digital comics, after all they were the team behind pioneering digital series like High Moon and Box 13.

Cartoonist Brad Guigar knows a thing or two about web comics having been producing them since 2003. Starting with Greystone Inn, Phables, and relationship advice strip Courting Disaster, he has been producing weekly comic strips for over a decade, but perhaps his best-known work is the brilliant web comic Evil Inc, which is set in the offices of a company run by villains – the aforementioned Evil Inc. Mixing brilliant jibes at superhero culture with the inanities of modern office life, it’s monthly anthologies are available on DriveThru Comics and will soo be available on ComiXology, so we got in touch with Brad asked him for some tips on the best way to run an evil conglomorate.
We love stories of self publishing digital comics here at Pipedream Comics, and we also love seeing what brilliant artwork talented artists can produce on their iPads. What’s even better though is finding out about a comic that’s written, produced and published on an iPad – which brings us to Little Robots by Raheem Nelson. A weekly web series published online every Sunday it features the antics of a group of robots, led by main character Addo and features satirical digs at pop culture and the modern world. But what’s even better the artwork is all produced digitally on an iPad. You can see the latest adventures of Addo and co at Raheem’s site and check out more of his work here, but in the meantime we got in touch with him to find just how he goes about creating his robotic adventures.
