(and apparently connected with my nemesisiesies, the dude who does "Least I Could Do")

Wait, what? How is Kristopher Straub connected to Least I Could Do? He does stuff with PvP and Penny Arcade, but I've never even heard of him and Ryan Sohmer so much as be in the same room together. Where did you hear about this?

Oh, I'm sure they're not frat buddies or anything, I'm just being silly- he gets hosting from LICD and I think he knows Sohmer via the internet or something.

I’m enjoying Noelle’s (gingerhaze) webcomic “Nimona”. Maybe on one level it’s just another “odd couple” setup, but even working my way through the early chapters I see a lot of subversive jokes and deftly-handled characterization and it’s just a treat my dudelies. Plus Noelle’s art has that nice understated-but-surprisingly-expressive thin line style I vaguely and probably very wrongly think of as “Canadian”. All said, it’s nothing groundbreaking but still a pleasant read and so far seems to keep getting better as the story develops.

*breath*

We should talk about webcomics more often! I must be missing out on so many gems that get overshadowed by the Norths and Clarks and Beatons.

So, is this the official needles in a haystack thread now? Then check these out.

Paranatural is a story about a 12-year-old who moves into another town and starts seeing and interacting with ghosts. It sounds generic as shit and looks a bit anime, but it has some really cool humour and overall really surprised me positively.

Powernap is beautifully done, and centers around a guy who is allergic to the sleep-replacing medicine that has turned the rest of humanity into a 24-hour society. He then gets shanghaied by the devil and an evil mutt into becoming a reluctant superhero in his dreams, while his dreams start bleeding into reality, or something. It updates irregularly and there's not much of it yet, but it looks very promising.

Gone with the Blastwave is absolutely stunning, visually, and very dark in humour. It updates whenever the artist/author emerges from a bout of laziness and does not descend into a bout of depression right after, which is not very often. Some of the more recent instalments have been basically trolling the fans, so I recommend to start from the beginning.

Darwin Carmichael is going to Hell is pretty great, it is about the guy with the worst karma in the universe in a world where all kinds of legends are part of everyday reality. It's one of those comics that I started and read until wherever it was at that point, and didn't really follow afterwards, but I still recommend it very much.

The same applies to Spacetrawler, except that the story revolves around a ragtag crew of weird people on a spacecraft trying to free the Eebs, a telekinetic slave race.


I, too, really like Nimona. She is easily the most rounded female character I've read, and also a really awesome one. It's really well-told, the amount of characterization that goes on without the reader noticing is incredible. It is also just so, so adorable.

I had stopped reading this because of irregular updates and completely forgotten about it. Thanks for reminding me, time to catch up.

I second Paranatural, easily my favorite webcomic right now.

Cucumber Quest

Also my favorite webcomic. Young protagonist Cucumber is about to head off to Puffington's Academy for the Magically Gifted and/or Incredibly Wealthy, when he finds out that his dad has been kidnapped! Our meek hero boldly sets off is forced to go on a grand and majestic adventure weirdly tedious and confusing journey, though he'd much rather be at school. He soon learns that the fate of the world is at stake! Dang.

The comic is essentially an affectionate parody of RPGs/adventure games, and Gigi cites the Paper Mario series as an influence on the style and humor of the comic.

Gigi's art is gorgeous, the characters are great, it's funny as hell, and the facial expressions are wonderful:

So I know who Sam Alden is now. The man's work is mad disciplined, and clever in a reserved, sort of ego-free way. He could probably write strong literature or screenplays if he ever lost interest in cartooning, because more than anything he has amazing intuition as a storyteller.

Two of his comics (the first contains NSFW imagery):

A window into something sad! Also, kind of a long read for an example.

A window into something... else.

Apparently in the last link Sam was only responsible for the art.

A real second example:

I read it twice before I felt like I had a decent grasp of the story. Then I read it a third time and realized there were still some things I had missed or overlooked. It’s disorienting in parts because of the jump cuts and a timeline that shows effect before cause, but once I was able to sort things out I thought it was well done.

The elusive Bill Watterson spotted in the wild!

His appearance arc starts here, but to be quite honest, the comic it's in sucks balls and even he cannot salvage it, so it's more of a curiosity for the collection, I guess.

Back to good things.



Tuca the Toucan is the High Art Ebert was talking about. (nsfw for bird ass and tits)



Clementine Comix, AKA Terrible Terrible Terrible, AKA my favorite webcomic. Lauren Monger is such a talented lady.




I also like Gastrophobia. (nsfw occasionally)

You Should Know Where You Come From, a one-shot story by Celine Loup. NSFW. Tread lightly if you're sensitive to triggers, because whoa-ly moly.

This is one of the more punk rock comics I've read in a while. Loup's anger is infectious.

this series finished well. Noelle's a smart writer and I'm really glad their are so many good artists putting out work and promoting each other.
