I just rambled into Plutocrat Coutry Club today and I was really impressed. This comic by Ryan O'Connell kind of helped me with the aching void that the hiatus of A Lesson Is Learned But the Damage Is Irreversible has left in my webcomic soul. The art is generally of a similar soft, almost-watercolor like style and O'Connell also seems to be aiming at a darkly humorous, maybe even slightly shocking tone -- but without employing formal gags. He has a small archive -- all from this year. Also, absent one two-parter, he hasn't been interested in storylines.
I like it and I hope he keeps working at it. He certainly has a vivid artistic style and I think with his sensibility he could create a pretty memorable comic series.

I never realized that Red String's creator Gina Biggs was part of a collective called Strawberry Comics. In fact she is, along with Robin Edwards and Amy Stoddard. It's self-described as "an all-female group of comic creators with the common interest of writing character driven stories of drama and romance. We have a growing selection of free online comics as well as print comics on the site."
