Webcomic / Ink Proof Cannon
Ink Proof Cannon
is an anthology webcomic
updating Monday to Friday. It features a mixture of genres, from drama to comedy, all with a science-fiction, fantasy or horror spin on them. The comic is the brainchild of writer/artist Zoe Kirk-Robinson
, creator of The Life of Nob T. Mouse
and co-creator of All Over The House

- Bounty Bunny: In the future, mutants will hunt down their creator and try to sue him in a class action suit.
- Dave Wetherby and the Devil's Accountants: A man nearing retirement discovers his greatest rival is Satan himself.
- Dudes With Swords: Four nerds can't tell the difference between the real world and the live action roleplaying game they adore so much.
- Sol Invictus: In the far future, four species of human are locked in perpetual conflict.
