See, I like quite a bit of the humour in Dresden Cosdak, and I find a lot of the ideas very interesting - it's stuff that the trippier end of hard SF literature is concerned with, which I haven't really seen addressed in comics before. And I think he is clever, though in quite a weird and autistic way.

I agree that his shit is often not at all readable though, which is a big problem.

I thought http://dresdencodak.com/2009/05/11/42-essential-3rd-act-twists/ was particularly excellent.

Is it me or has Achewood been unbelievably weird lately? I mean, great, also--the "becomes or already is" bit made me laugh for a couple of minutes straight--but the WTF factor is extremely high.

Also very fond of http://octopuspie.com , chiefly because it keeps hammering at its own boundaries.

Totally agree about Octopus Pie, seems to have improved greatly over the last year.

If you like that sort of stuff, but with a decidedly more misanthropic view (great characters, though!), try Anders Love Maria:

A difficult to navigate collective site, with a mix of French & English language works featuring some very nice looking artwork & probably some gems if you're willing to dig around.

"webcomics have been around for over a decade, and the more successful ones do at least try to do some self-published books"
What disappoints me is when I find out they originally started in print and are now using the web as a cheaper distribution/promotion system, which implies that even without the web, they'd still be around, though maybe less famous. (Though I'm not sure that's even true -- wouldn't Perry Bible Fellowship become as famous and popular as The Far Side in a pre-web marketplace?)

"he is clever, though in quite a weird and autistic way."
I would actually like to see webcomics by actual full-blown autistics. There was a print comic by a person with dissociative identity disorder that was semi-famous but I was never able to track it down.

Oop Oop boing,

Paradoxically, upon sipping my tea, I peruse www.nerdstrip.com - um, burp, whistle and fart your way toward financial independance like the monks do it!

Even my webcomic isn't a webcomic.

Though I read THE RACK and a few others. Oh, and OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS just when I want to lovingly caress my lips with the barrel of my .38 and wonder if I really have the guts to do it this time.

it's less twee than "inspirational dentist office walls" but i dig it somewhat

very good. i want to see her do some more serious stuff like that

Nhex, Tuesday, 8 April 2014 15:19 (five years ago) link

yeah i was about to post that, it's fantastic. If anyone hasn't seen her Christmas strip about her time there it's really good too, the video she linked of Fort McMurray at night in winter is otherworldly.

Justice League: Elementary School
so good

...what is the joke supposed to be there?

Charles, hatless (sic), Wednesday, 9 April 2014 02:52 (five years ago) link

Hal and Bruce had a bet about Bruce asking a girl out.

good find, thanks!

Sounds like a forks display name (forksclovetofu), Monday, 26 January 2015 16:54 (five years ago) link

i was not aware this existed: https://medium.com/tag/nib-longform

Read the Argentina one and the HIV one - so much text the cartoon aspect is pointless (not helped by the quality of the comic)

Kiarostami bag (milo z), Sunday, 8 March 2015 20:56 (four years ago) link

agreed in several cases but i think it's still worthy of note

there's some good stuff there, thanks
funny thing i just heard of Matt Bor (the editor of The Nib) recently because he did a great pin-up in Hop Hop Family Tree

Like this is kinda good as illustration/polemic:
