More recommendations, anyone? What's a good "Romance" comic that isn't just about flowers and pink candy hearts? I'm considering nominating Alexandros. But I'd love to discover some new favourites through this.

By far the best romance comic is Fetus-X:

It also has the advantage of being a short form and single panel comic!

fetus x was disqualified from romance last year

Hi! I am new here. I would like to point out an obviously obscure comedic cartoon that I discovered through a forum at It is called, The FLOOR. I like it so much I have found myself wandering through the archives again. I know for a fact others have found this out-of-the-way strip charming as well as Mr. Lindgren (The artist) has not forbid anyone to go and look at his web traffic info. I have see people enticed to read the whole thing on more than one occassion... either that or they just like looking at the same cartoon 50 times... :lol:

I think The FLOOR should be a consideration for one of your awards!

Oh! Oho!

Has Family Man been mentioned?

It's the sort of comic that can pretty much fill in many of the blank spots on my ballot--smart use of layout (I just love all of this), smart use of characters, smart use of smarts.

It's one I discovered when I felt I just couldn't fit reading yet another comic into the rotation, but every time I see a banner or other image from it, it pulls me right to it.
