Modern Tales announced the addition of five new comics to its lineup for the second half of 2007:
- Little Dee, by Chris Baldwin, a daily strip about a little girl raised in the woods by animals. Baldwin is best known as the creator of Bruno, one of the longest-running and most acclaimed webcomics, which ended early in 2007.
- Planet Saturday Comics, by Monty and Kelli Kane, a monthly comic about â€œchildhood, parenthood and memory,â€ based on the creatorsâ€™ own experiences as kids and as parents.
- Gothbunnies, by Joanne Wojtysiak, a whimsical fantasy about three rabbits dealing with their new home and its overgrown, magical garden.
- No Stereotypes, by Amber â€œGlychâ€ Greenlee, a sprawling fantasy about an immortal searching for his lost love, the ordinary girl who might be what heâ€™s been looking for, and the troublemaking gods who get in their way. No Stereotypes is returning to Modern Tales after a long absence.
- All Knowledge Is Strange, a new strip by renowned experimental webcartoonist and minicomics creator Daniel Merlin Goodbrey. All Knowledge Is Strange replaces Goodbreyâ€™s previous comic on Modern Tales, Brain Fist.
Editor Shannon Garrity promises interviews with the new creators - she's already posted one with Chris Baldwin here.

Hey it isn't everyday you get a webcomic-related Websnark post anymore so let's link to Eric's recent post on Something Positive and the passing of author Robert Jordan. A good read and an interesting point about being more upset about losing a novel-to-be then about the actual death of the author.
Are there any comic stories going on now that would provoke that kind of response? (My not-serious suggestion below):
What? Jim Davis died? Now we'll never know the ending of Garfield and whether Jon gets it on with Liz...

I've read all of those except for John and John and while I've laughed at all of them I'm not sure any of them would make my list for the 5 funniest webcomics. For me those would be the comics that flat out make me laugh the most and the most consistently. What 5 comics would you pick?
