Under appreciated comics.

Just wondering what comics you all think deserve more recognition.

I'll link to my list here.

Re: Under appreciated comics.

For all you news junkies, "Beyond the Punchline" is a pretty good web comic; especially during those weeks when The Daily Show is on hiatus Smile

There are many. I think that the completed, manga-influenced webcomic Estancia (first page, home page, my spotlight) is one of the most under-appreciated of all.

I don't know how (under)appreciated it is, but I just discovered Rice Boy and I'm completely enthralled.

Nerdcore: The Core Wars

Again, I would second Journey to Mt Moriah

Seriously, it's great.

 

And if you must, why not have a look at The Flowfield Unity

  Visit The Flowfield Unity - www.theflowfieldunity.com – it's OK.

Code Name Hunter

Code Name Hunter deserves more notice.

Unicorn Jelly

It's been finished for a few years now, but Unicorn Jelly is a wonderful comic that is almost never mentioned. A really charming and well thought out sci-fi/fantasy comic.

Not Completely Unappreciated

We reviewed Unicorn Jelly in 2003 at Comixpedia. Sometimes after a comic is done and it's good there are new waves of people discovering it - another cool wrinkle of being on the web and always available (never out of print!).

On second thought, let's not go to Comixpedia. It is a silly place.

I run this place! Tip the piano player on the way out.

It's one of the best

It's one of the best science-fiction stories I know in any medium. And JDR is doing two brilliant ongoing sequels, Pastel Defender
Heliotrope
and To Save Her, which follow up the ideas and universe of UJ in different directions. Her art's developed wonderfully too.

Wonderland

Wonderland by Chrissy Delk and Mia Paluzzi has a nice look and feel. The pacing is what makes it stand out to me. http://amadteaparty.net/wonderland/index.html

I also like Kevin Burhalters journal comic, http://kar2nist.livejournal.com/

Yes, my comic. Well, it's virtually unknown and I don't think it deserves that. Right or wrong, you be the judge of that...

Minus and Jonny Crossbones

Gordon McAlpin's picture

Minus and Jonny Crossbones are two of my favorite comics right now, on the web or otherwise. Both of them have elements that are throwbacks to old-school comics, but with their own, unique, distinctly modern flavor. Gorgeous stuff.

Multiplex is a twice weekly humor comic about the staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas and the movies that play there.

Nice

I'm a big fan of Minus too.great stories. I'll have to check out Jonny Crossbones though.

Add Shades to the under-appreciated list!

Well, since I'm not the first to do it, I'm going to mention my own flagship comic Shades.

Despite all my efforts, regular readers still average just over 100 a day (and were a lot lower pre-ComicSpace!) Compared to some of the comics that regularly haunt the higher reaches of the top lists, I'd say that was "under-appreciated".

On a less personal note, Elf and Troll is "often ignored"? You should sue, AP! Elf and Troll deserves to be enormous!

Much appreciated :)

Thanks for the kind words. Eye candy? I'll ave to tell Monique that. LOL. Here's one that I've always liked that needs more attention The Nice Guy. I've always said it's like every John Cusack movie from the 80's that you ever watched and enjoyed, like "Say Anything. Give it a try.

I'll also mention, and agree

I'll also mention, and agree with The DeeMan that G.A.A.K is grosely overlooked as well. It's a crime. Great eye candy, great stories...do not be afraid of these comics folks! Surprised

Pewfell Porfingles by Chuck

apfurtado's picture

Pewfell Porfingles by Chuck Whelon has been around for years and seldom gets any mention. it's a shame.

Elf `n Troll by Me. LOL Often ignored. Perhaps I'd have more fortune if I went all manga-like with this.

Ballad by Deadmouse is one that got some brief attention but I don't see much on this anymore. I'd love to see this in a print collection.

Ballad probably needs a good

Ballad probably needs a good printed version to do it justice - the fine line-work doesn't always come out well onscreen.

A few which deserve some love

Imaginary Friends

Slightly Damned

Death and the Maiden (Slightly wobbly translation from German, but a wonderful read nonetheless)

Fight Cast or Evade

Nightmare World A classy series of short online horror and thriller comicbooks.

As do...

Man-Man

Furmentation

The Curious Adventures of Aldus Maycombe (young comic but very promising)

My suggestion.

Lancaster: The Ghost Detective is quite a good comic.

Same can be said for Culture Shock.

JOURNEY TO MT MORIAH

The strip's creator is a quiet and humble guy and his work is unique, beautiful and, often, fucking hilarious.

I tell Monique (GAAK artist) that folks won't fully appreciate GAAK until it's gone. Then everybody will be like, "Damn! How did I miss this?! It was genius!" LOL! Dee G.A.A.K: Groovy Ass Alien Kreatures It's like The Goonies meets The Invaders from Mars. Updates on Mondays.

How about Horribleville by KC Green? It's about to come back from a month-long hiatus, and it's pure, concentrated funny. http://www.horribleville.com

Don't hesitate to procrastinate.

Okay, this'll sound

Otto_Germain's picture

Okay, this'll sound egotistical, but I've always thought my own comics could use a little more lovin'. Granted, they're still in their first year, and traffic has been slowly increasing, but it can still be frustrating at times.

On the flip side of things, sometimes it's nice to see a brand new comic take off right away. Gotta root for the underdog.

Another comic that I haven't heard mentioned much but seriously like is Thingpart: http://www.jsayers.com/thingpart/thingpart.html
