02/26: Nothing to Ad
Several webcomics to update you all on.
Cyanide and Happiness is a comic that I found through a guildmate from my world of warcraft guild forums. Its a standard comic strip gag style comic that likes to poke fun at the things that society says are off limits. Because I am off kilter and hate the world, I enjoy these kinds of comics.
Family Man is a comic by the same artist who drew Bite Me, although I don't think you can really compare two. Bite Me is cliche, has little or no story, and is a (self-admitted) means for Dylan Meconis to make silly jokes. Family Man suffers from none of these things - it is pure polish. The art is gorgeous, the characters and world are fleshed out, and there are some serious strings that seem to be hiding just beneath the surface as the story builds.
I don't remember where I found Gossamer Commons, its just one of the links in my bookmarks I check occasionally. Most likely, some combination of the creators did a guest strip somewhere.
Anywhoo, Gossamer Commons is about a would-be writer named Keith who becomes marked for death after he sees an unglamored Fairy. But because he saved the fairy despite knowledge of his fate, he's been granted a boon. Before he dies, Keith decides that he wants to become immortal.
But the main star of tonight is Misfile. While I don't want to say really much of anything about the story, because doing so would mess up the flow and mood of the intro, let's just say that "In one little corner of the universe, there's nothing more irritating than a misfile."
I found Misfile off of a thread in a Myspace Group for webcomics. And I was not disappointed. Misfile is one of those rare gems that you find every now and then, and quite a bright, bright gem it is. I am very dissapointed that I found Misfile last week instead of two weeks ago, because then I could have voted for it as Best Character Writing, Best Writing, and Best Long Form comic.
The depth and execution of character I found in Misfile is unmatched. I read through the entire three year archives of the comic in the day that I discovered it. If you read nothing else on this website, read Misfile.
