In which I put on my Nancy Drew outfit and search out deleted webcomics and their creators!
Locoma (of Anti Featured) recently suggested that I do a newspost about those mysterious webcomics whose archives are deleted and which disappear forever. I couldn't think of very many on my own, so I thought it might be more fun to spread this out a bit and you guys can leave suggestions!
This week I picked one that I had wanted to feature in my Completed Webcomics Newspost, only to find that all its pages had been deleted: Manifestations by Raffaele_Ienco, who also did Devoid of Life (also deleted).
This was a pretty easy one to find, because Raffaele Ienco appears to have gone into the professional comic making business!
Both Devoid of Life (buy here) and Raffaele's other comic Epic Kill (buy here) have gone to print. Manifestations was apparently released as a digital-only comic by Top Cow on the website Comixology, and can be found here for $4.99.
He has apparently been working on a number of other comic projects as well, including doing the inks for some issues of The Fantastic Four!
A very happy ending indeed! I like to hope that this is what happens to all comic creators who leave DD. :)

selecthumor's comic Hephaestus has returned from a 9-month hiatus and has passed the 300 page mark!
Have a comic milestone, a community project or some comic-related news you’d like to see in a newspost? Send it to me via PQ or at hippievannews(at)gmail.com!
