88 Lines About 44 Webcomics by Xaviar Xerexes

with major apologies to the Nails

Shaenon K. Garrity was quite Narbonic
she couldn't stick to just one project.
Meaghan Quinn was a different type,
no John Troutman webcomic could she reject.

Meredith Gran was a superhero girl
and I was afraid of a girl like that.
Dorothy Gambrell had no Superfluous Leisure
to sit and chat.

Amy Kim Ganter had a Reman Mythology,
with science and magic and an ancient memory.
Donna Barr had Enemies and Friends,
her Desert Peach was quite the mystery.

Declan Meconis had this special way,
of making vampires seem quite kooky
Gisele Lagace who didn't write,
drew Penny & Aggie and was no rookie.

Amber Greenlee had No Stereotypes,
But she had a purple cat named Spontaneous.
Spike and Lucas and Odessa,
equaled serious combustion.

Liz Walsh was a hacker,
she really had that Tao of Geek.
Jenn Manley Lee's point of view was this:
roll the dice for what you seek.

Maritza Campos' College Roomies came from hell,
that Margaret can ring your bell
Ching N Chan has a monkey soapbox,
and she put Asali through hell.

Faith Erin Hicks enrolled in Demonology 101,
and made Ice melt down.
Erica Moen wanted Coffee To Go,
went to the Big Apple town.

Ping Teo was quite Jaded,
looking for webcomics throughout the night.
Raina Telgemeier was a twisted sort,
her Smile had a special sort of light.

Eve Grandt liked to bake,
was never ever satisfied.
Liriel McMahon liked Bad Blood,
on a ham and rye.

Denise Jones lives in a zen garden,
where it's forever summer's eve.
Jenny Yu lives in Australia,
sits at CafeTengu and won't ever leave.

Liz Powell took the Road Less Traveled,
filled it up with webcomic worlds.
Lea Hernandez was much too smart,
to rumble with girls.

Uh-uh. Not Lea.

Jenny Lui had Random Thoughts,
dot dash dash dash dot.
Leigh Bader drew shounen-ai,
liked her gratuitous, complicated plot.

Isabel Marks was the perfect colorist,
always kept her furries straight.
Zoe Stead was an English lit major,
coffee, chocolate and the Eighties.

Vanessa Satone was pretty vacant,
loved Wasted Minds,
Svetlana Chmakova was Chasing Rainbows,
of all kinds.

Andrea Peterson chased out the wicked,
while burying the moon.
Mary Bowman's strange obsession,
was for certain demons and a loon.

Maggie McFee was a salvage man's daughter,
the galaxy shook her up.
Sara Turner was on the run,
took the file and had to jump.

Monique MacNaughton knew no boundaries,
past the frontiers she'd roam.
Julie Keene had Okay Pants,
lived in Canada, that's her home.

Victoria and Katrina pledged Tomodachi Forever,
and played Girl Heroes.
Celeste and Jessica yelled Oriyan!,
made webcomics with memories zero.

Sarah Ellerton ran the Seraph Inn,
for Acheron finding Kaynedar was his wish.
Naomi Lewis was much more my style,
she hunted demons just like this.

Rebecca Veverka had a Grand Blue Door
when it happened she would not say.
Onezumi dropped her Wacom Intuos 2 tablet
into the San Francisco bay.

Gianna Masetti was no Noob,
she's got a webcomic with a fantasy twist.
Reva Sharp created The Epilogue,
with which I chose to end this list.

Eighty-eight lines about forty-four webcomics.

Xaviar Xerexes really enjoyed reading lots of great webcomics the past month, quite a few of them new to him. He is, however, pretty embarassed that he tried to pull off a parody of 88 Lines About 44 Women. Please forgive him.

Wandering webcomic ronin. Created Comixpedia (2002-2005) and ComixTalk (2006-2012; 2016-?). Made a lot of unfinished comics and novels.


  1. saving the best for last, eh? 😉

    Thanks for the link 🙂

  2. I can’t stop hearing Bruce McCullough’s voice reciting it. I may need chemical assistance. 30 Second Stories won’t get out my head now!

  3. Oh, thankee thankee thankee!
    Even if I’m not “Monica”. 🙂

    Monique MacNaughton

  4. Thank you very much for the mention! It’s nice to know that someone noticed I’m a girl, since some emails I get from readers start with “Dude!”.

  5. Xerexes: You’re forgiven? 🙂

    Seriously, this was pretty cool. Even if I’m not familiar with the source material.

  6. I didn’t get plugged in Xaviar’s little ditty, but I thought it was a very cool and creative way to talk about webcomics!

  7. Okay..leave it to me to find this seven months after it was written. Thank you for giving My Comic Naomi Lewis: Demon Hunter a little mention! that made my day!
