Old City Blues
Everyone (yes, everyone) should check out Old City Blues ( OldCityBlues.com ), a sci-fi thriller webcomic by the impossibly amazing Giannis Milonogiannis. Noir detectives, robot ninjas, badass mechs, violent cybernetic crime scenes, intense rooftop action, New Athens -- any of those would be reason enough to get excited, and Giannis combines them all in Old City Blues without breaking a sweat.
The comic is being released monthly, online and completely for free, in full, thick issues of stunning black and white. The first issue is up now, so if you want to be one of the lucky readers who can say they've been there since the beginning, now is your chance.

This is the comic for you. Is one of your favourite videogames the Hideo Kojima adventure Snatcher? This is the comic for you. Do you get the slightest pleasure from anything even remotely cyberpunk?
