Ava’s Demon is another webcomic that I’m into that has artwork like something out of Disney and Pixar. It’s something of a polar-opposite of Blindsprings, but it has it’s charm as a space-faring fic. Fair-warning, I’m not going to hide spoilers so read at your own risk, and don’t eat anything or you’ll regret it.
The story is about a girl known as Ava who, as pictured above, is possessed by the soul of a space-empress named Wrathia that constantly ruins her life with the intent to drive her into suicide. This has ultimately cost her all her friends, got her expelled from her previous schools, and generally left her miserable.
In fact, when she is eventually killed after her planet gets destroyed, her greatest relief was that she didn’t die by Wrathia’s hands. This leads to a conversation where Wrathia manages to convince her into a pact after explaining that TITAN, the current conqueror of the universe managed to take over her world so she used space-alchemy to reincarnate all her most powerful warriors into new bodies, in the hopes that they would be strong enough to best TITAN. It clearly didn’t go as planned, but the gist is that now Ava has to find the hosts of the other warriors, most of whom are conveniently around her without her knowledge, to overthrown the guy.
It goes without mentioning that this art is goddamn gorgeous, but this webcomic gets seriously dark and disturbing at times. Even the impaling scene from above pales in comparison to some of the later scenes.
Overall, it’s a decent webcomic that’s easy on the eyes, but has some seriously dark overtones. And while it used to update like twice every week, it’s been on hiatus for months with only a single 30-page update last month. That being said, I recommend it highly and you can go read it:
