One-offs are ok, but how about a good webcomic series?

Girl Genius - the adventures of Agatha Heterodyne in a Steampunk world complete with Sparks and other Mad Geniuses, Clanks, Jaegermonsters, Hive Machines, and any other genre cliche you'd care to wedge in...

Plenty of good fun for all.

Some of my favorites are already mentioned here. Too bad Elftor is not continued anymore.

My feed reader also delivers Daily Garfield, Dilbert, Cyanide & Happiness, Lunar Baboon and - maybe more on-topic here - Bonkers World:

Just found this one a few weeks ago, and lost some sleep catching up...  :up:
Beautifully drawn and artfully told by Minna Sundberg from 'A Redtail's Dream'.

Quote
"Stand Still. Stay Silent" is a post apocalyptic webcomic with elements from Nordic mythology, set 90 years in the future. It's mostly a story about friendship and exploring a forgotten world, with some horror, monsters and magic on the side.

The comic updates with one new page every weekday, Monday through Friday.

The Story So Far:
Essentially, some sort of virus or something has begun infecting people and animals in northern Europe, which transforms them into hideous monstrosities.  Some people and all cats are immune, so massive quarantines and nationalist hilarity ensues.  90 years later, a poor book translator catches wind that "The Silent Lands" (areas overtaken by the infection and its victims) harbor many libraries and the books therein are quite valuable.  He gets some friends together and petitions the government for a grant to hire a crew of adventurer/explorers to go explore, report their findings, and especially bring back precious books!  The grant is laughingly small, so their crew is ragtag to say the least, but...

The comic starts a little jerkily, as the ancestors of the main characters play out some of the events preceding the main story.  After the prolog, however, the pace starts to pick up and it gets pretty good.

Quote
It's been 90 years after the end of the old world. Most of the surviving population of the Known world live in Iceland, the largest safe area in existence, while the safe settlements in the other Nordic countries; Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland, are small and scarce.

Countless mysterious and unspoken dangers lurk outside the safe areas - the Silent world, and hunters, mages and cleansers will spend their lives defending the settlements against the terrifying beings. Because of a great fear towards everything in the Silent world no official attempts to explore the ruins of the old have been made, and most of the information about it has turned into ancient lore, known by few.

But now, at last, it is time to send out an research crew into the great unknown! A poorly funded and terribly unqualified crew, but a crew nonetheless.

Stand Still, Stay Silent

Aw man, smack me for not seeing it myself.... Yes, that is VERY Tolkien-ish.  When I was about 12, I got my hands on a hardback copy of The Hobbit with yellowing pulp pages and a forest green cloth cover, and it was full of his wonderful maps and illustrations.  I have no idea where it is now, but I still remember it fondly.  :-*

^ one of my older sisters had The Lord of the Rings so I got to read it at an early age -- unfortunately it had no illustrations. Have seen a book just lately with pictures / letters he sent his kids 'from' Father Christmas and Polar Bear:

Must have a look see if the illustrated Hobbit book is affordable...

Ok, I have to confess I've become a web series addict.  I've killed (caught up from the beginning) a few since posting SSSS, so it's only fair I share my latest obsessions.  Don't worry, I'll dole them out one at a time so nobody gets the shakes...

A strange-ish girl with an estranged father/teacher has many mis-adventures at an even stranger private school.  She makes friends, does homework, battles dragons, keeps a demon as a stuffed pet dog, you know... stuff.

Far to the North
A young woman in a fictional medieval-northern-european-ish setting punches a dragon(!), gets wooed by creepy woodland dwellers, and tries to save her family from being taken hostage by a band of foreign invaders by supplying them with dragon scales.

Quote
Check back every Sunday and Wednesday to see Kelu run, see Kelu jump, and see Kelu save her captive family (with maybe a little help from a scaly, fire-breathing neighbor or two.)

Mare Internvm
Mars colonist/AI scientist Michael is about to be fired and shipped back to earth, but possible mental health issues (among others) make this an uncomfortable string of events.  So, then this thing happens...

Author Der-shing Helmer is quite adept at setting atmosphere and environment with her artwork and all the characters have amazing depth that can only be handled by a skilled storyteller, whom she obviously is.  The story can be a bit drawn-out at times, but makes up for it when the action hits.  Her warning of "material that may be disturbing" is more related to the development of the main characters rather than any violence or blood or bare skin, so like I said... depth.

Quote
Mare Internum is an online science fiction graphic novel about the isolated inhabitants of the planet Mars. The comic updates as many times a week as I can manage, but most likely Monday and Friday.

Please note that this comic contains material that may be disturbing to sensitive viewers, but has been thoroughly researched and will never be used for shock value.

Descende, audax viator!
