Mare Internum didn't do much for me, but the strip is still young so I may have to come back to it.
In the mean time here's a better representation of The Fancy Adventures Of Jack Cannon than what I gave last time.

My top 3 right now would be EGS, The Last Halloween, and Sandra and Woo.

I don't know about the comic as a whole, but this was a *good* strip.

Very, very good. In fact, I'll probably dig into this one later, because it's doing a lot of interesting things.

My problem with it is the terrible, terrible archive. I can't find the starting point of anything. What kind of comic doesn't have a functioning "first" button and is numbered randomly so you can never find the first strip?

While looking for horse puns for dueling with razorborne and RavenoftheBlack, I came across a page of Cyanide and Happiness about a... miscommunication. Someone didn't send it the Trojan Horse. I am now definitely going to go read some of it. That had me laughing very loudly for several minutes.

A couple for me.

What Birds Know is a webcomic I only discovered very recently. It's close to finished, it seems, but it is WELL worth the read. Because of its pacing, which takes time to build beautiful atmosphere, I'll be showing a few consecutive pages.
Spoiler

Part of the beauty is that moment, much more recently of course, when we start getting answers. It ties together amazingly well, but it gives you mystery and menace long before


Stand Still, Stay Silent has been mentioned before. I was pretty sure it was going to rock after, towards the end of that comic's run, I picked up A Redtail's Dream. But it's easy to display why, in two parts

Penny Arcade is almost as bad, so despite it being right up my alley I've never been able to read it due to literally no archive to speak of.

At this point the only webcomic I can still say I'm following, despite having five other tabs open on webcomics and two more that I have read but haven't checked up on for several months, is Paranatural.

I love every. Single. Page. Of Paranatural. Moreso than Homestuck, Paranatural has captured my attention and held it for a long time now. I have not yet read a single page of that webcomic that hasn't made me smile or care for the characters or get my adrenaline pumping or something. I know I'm not doing a very good job of selling it, but I don't think I can recommend it more highly.

Paranatural has spent waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too long on a dodgeball game.

No seriously. The last 50 pages, which is the entire comic since April, has been an in-depth analysis of all the events that happen within a single period of gym class, where they are playing a game of dodgeball.

Um, dodgeball hasn't appeared in the comic except for passing references. The characters are playing hitball.

And can I just say I am saddened that the extra page about drawing a fruit bowl as a shounen anime protagonist didn't have the rant uploaded with it? I really liked that rant but then I came back like a day later and he had taken the page down, and now that he uploaded the page in the Extras section the rant isn't there.

I love a lot of Paranatural, especially the worldbuilding. The only thing I don't like is the characters being stuck in ridiculously-over-the-top gear over incredibly minor things. At times it's so outrageous it actually breaks the flow of the story for me.

Okay, Banished does look interesting. I'll have to go through the archive at some point.

Also, TPMan said something about Cucumber Quest and a quick look at it makes it look positively delightful, in much the same way as Steven Universe. I haven't yet looked into it but we should all pressure TPMan into saying more about it.

Oh noes not more pressure! But, yeah, I've been wondering about getting back to this thread for ages. I have a staff party tonight though, so you'll have to wait. Appies ahoy!

The story is probably best appreciated if you start from the beginning instead of jumping around. Here is the first page. The good art doesn't start until Chapter 6.

Can I lobby a general complaint (not just against this comic)? Why do I keep coming across websites that have empty spaces on the left and right with nothing in them? I see no reason to not have things take up more space; as it is, I'm zooming in to 125% to have a sense of normalcy to the pages.

Okay for some reason I've made it past Book 1 of Banished and can I just say that I keep imagining Rak's voice as Zim and Timbo's voice as GIR?

Okay I think I'm going to keep up with Banished now. If I had been shown it in the early bits (with the not-so-great art and the real-world terminology like zounds), I wouldn't have cared, but having caught up to where it currently is, I'm awfully curious where it will go.
