Gone Too Soon...

What are your favourite webcomics that either died in permanent Hiatus or just finished so long ago as to be forgotten?

Squid Ninja is one I liked. Quit updating right in the middle of a battle sequence.

I gave that a quick eyeball. I will have to add it to my list.

I really miss Green Avenger, not only because I think it ended too soon; but also because the archives are gone. Elf Only Inn is another one, along with Sortelli's lost 'Renaissance Ogre' and 'No Scrying'. And it would have been swell for Andy Mason to finish 'Special School'.

Ballad, by David Nytra (under the pen name "deadmouse") was absolutely gorgeous, and still one of my favorite comics of all time. It disappeared with the closure of Modern Tales, and now I wish I had saved every page. He's since gone on to make a couple of beautifully-illustrated children's books, so at least there's that.

Don't say it's gone, say it to a vacation to come back brilliant.

Trying to remember the name of it, but it was about a guy named Dave and his wife (Beth?). Very simply drawn, in the gag-a-day format.

I loved it until it just stopped being updated in 2002 or so.

Also another by Dan Wolfe. The name escapes me right now, but the first wife actually bought me a coffee mug from the strip that I still use.

Anyone hear from Sortelli anymore? The No Scrying domain has expired :(

Wow, I follow him there too, I just never log on. I always forget twitter exists on an interpersonal level. Thanks for the tip!

Twitter, Discord and Tumblr are where most of the still-active CGers are nowadays.
