I hope others, registered voters or not, can join me in this little initiative...
I know chances are slim-to-none that anyone will respond to this thread, but since nominations for this year's WCCAs have begun, I figured I'd at least thow out some good webcomics I've read, and the categories they might fall under. I've also approximated the "where this comic was one year ago" mark as best I could.
The full list of categories can be found here.
Bruno the Bandit
has had consistently well-done art, long-form storylines,
and satire-based humor
But it's the past year we're concerned with, so you needn't let the huge archive scare you. (Plus, the "weekly" reading option currently lets you see three strips at once.)
I really enjoy the humor
of Maxwell the Demon,
and the environments are often really nice, too. It used to be in short form
format, but the most recent story arch has become pretty long.(Sometimes not safe for work, occasional adult references.)
I can't explain why I'm drawn to the character-writing
of pretty much every character in Rabbi Encounters,
but I am. If it didn't have sepia tones, I'd think it could also qualify for black and white art.
I believeHim & Her's Drug Smuggling Vacation
qualifies as a new comic
insofar as it was fully colored and put on the web this year. (Mostly not safe for work due to curse words and the use of illegal substances and the smuggling thereof.)
is compelling, though it takes some getting used to--particularly when the setting jumps back and forth in time. But then, that sort of disconnect tends to evoke the entire situation--"laws of physics and nature out the window"--pretty well. The environment
is also definitely "out there," but I'm not sure enough was shown within the past year... (Some gore and other unpleasantries.)
Anyone else? Come on, I know you're reading this. Please?
NOTE: I'm not sure if there are still rules for update frequency, or if all of these would qualify in that case, but I'm sure that bridge will be crossed if there's a need to. ...Right?
