Webcomic Wednesdays is a weekly feature here at Girls Read Comics Too. Each week, we like to shine a spotlight on one of the webcomics that we happen to keep up with on the interwebs.
Pumpkin Spiced is an adorable little webcomic. Okay, maybe calling it “little” when it is already on its fifth issue and has two volumes in paperback isn’t exactly accurate, but somehow the adjective still feels fitting. Despite the longevity of the webcomic, there is a closeness to both the characters and the story that makes the reading experience an intimate one.
Through the entire length of my binge read I felt like I was being allowed to be a fly on the wall witness to the lives of Violett, Penelope, and Isabell. Despite the supernatural elements of the story (Penelope is a zombie and their neighbor Skarlett is a vampire), everything feels grounded. The creator, Paige Lavoie, was the one who dropped a little note about this comic into our inbox and I am eternally grateful to her for it. This was the perfect remedy for a stressful work week, being both sweet and funny all in one go. Each page is laid out in a way that makes it easy to read, the cute drawings colored in a pastel, almost watercolor style that is different from other comics I have seen on the web.
If you’re in the mood for a little Halloween fun, despite the season, then I recommend taking a look in on the lives of two sisters and their housekeeper as they cope with roommates and being young adults with a twist. If you’re anything like me, then you’ll spend some quality time wondering where you can find a pumpkin spice latte in April just so that you can fit right in (preferably in a panda mug).
Are you the creator of a webcomic? Do you have a webcomic that you love and think more people should check out? Then drop us a line either here in the comments or shoot us an email! We’re always looking for new things to read and get excited about!
