Welcome, New Spider Friends! (Week 2)

Page 408 is up! (And if you're a patron, you can read next week's page, too.) ♥

The Spider Forest new member welcome party continues! Here are this week's featured comics:

Black Shallows

Hadian's world is sinking into the sea. As ever increasing amounts of land fall into the water, blame is cast on a hidden and secretive group of people whose strange ability to travel through dirt and time may be causing the devastating collapses. Hadian is one of them.

Ten Earth Shattering Blows

Lady Landabella Trastan, a noblewoman from the rich city of Vezenia, travels across the desert with a scanty escort. Her quest: to kill the “evil witch” that resides in the fortress of Saltfall. Her motives: unknown. What is certain is that she hugely underestimates the task. Caught between ruthless slavers and lizard riders, she soon discovers that the authority of her noble status is worth nothing in a lawless, unforgiving land.


Centuries ago, the survivors of a chemical apocalypse emerged into a world affected by radiation. Decades of gruesome war between the fire and water nations culminate in a reluctant treaty, as now both sides have a common enemy: swarms of spectre demons that destroy and take away lives regardless of power or faction.


Broken is a fantasy/horror story about a psychic zombie kid befriending a fairy general and trying to deal with guilt, grief, and PTSD. This is complicated by eldritch abominations, a genocidal dictator, the dictator's wife, and a panic-induced exit from the last known bastion of civilization.

Flaky Pastry: Fun - Danger - Romance - Frosting
Flaky Pastry

The button says it all. Almost. (I guess there wasn't room to mention "awesome characters" and "totally sweet artwork.")


Welcome, New Spider Friends! (Week 1)

Page 407 is up! (And if you're a patron, you can read the next 2 pages right now.) ♥

Also remember that you can vote on Top Web Comics to see a preview panel from next week's comic!

In other fun news: The Spider Forest webcomic collective just accepted some awesome new members, and we're all rolling out the red carpet to welcome them.



Angels Tiel and Iax accidentally release the Northwind, which results in their banishment to Earth.

Watch as they hilariously learn to fit in with humans, dodge the Northwind, and discover a potentially earth-shattering demon plot.

The Stoop-Gallants

When Ru discovers his necromantic powers one night while taking a drunken shortcut through the cemetery, his life is irreversibly changed, and he embarks on a quest to get rid of his desiccated new companion meeting a colorful cast of knights with social anxiety, wizards, and scholars with mysterious cheese allergies.

Flaky Pastry

Follow the unlikely adventures of three roommates: Marelle, Nitrine and Zintiel. Silliness and situational comedy, with a healthy dose of adventure, action, romance and outright craziness.

Ingress Adventuring Co.

Saving the world is a pretty big deal, but what do you do when no one needs you anymore?

Do you become a magic professor? Do you study a convoluted thesis that no one understands? Maybe you relive the glory days by starting up a one-man adventuring party to gather mystical artifacts for people who may or may not pay you.

If you're Toivo Kissa, you do all of these things.

(If you've been here awhile, you already know how much I love Northwind and Flaky Pastry. I'm delighted to see them join the collective and I'm also excited to discover the new comics that I hadn't read before. Please check out all of them and give the creators some love!)


Preview Panels for All!

Page 406 is up! (And if you're a patron, you can check out the next 3 pages, too!)

But hey, what if you don't want to see entire pages in advance? What if that's too much to handle? What if you only want a little peek at the next page? No worries, I've got you covered!

...Which is to say, after almost ten years(!), I finally remembered that I have a Top Web Comics listing and that I could be using it to show you guys some fun extra stuff!

For now, I've set it up so that you can see a panel from the next week's page whenever you contribute a vote (either by clicking here or by using that handy black-and-white button in the left-hand menu).

Adding your vote improves True Magic's ranking, which makes it easier for new readers to find it. So, any time you'd like to give the comic a little boost, now you can help out with just a couple seconds of clicks. ♥ Cheers!


Ten Years??

Page 405 is up! (And if you're a patron, you can check out the next 4 pages too!)

In other news, True Magic's tenth anniversary is coming up on September 16th! Whoa.

It would be neat to celebrate somehow. My spare time/energy supply has seemed almost nonexistent lately, but I'd love to at least make something like a fun sketch for you guys. Let me know if you have any ideas! ♥
