Hey folks,

I'm looking for any mystery webcomics (including ones that cross-over into other genres, like the supernatural) online.

Just the title and link are fine, I can take it from there. Any further data you'd like to include would be appreciated, of course.

Ones I already know (or which have been pointed out to me):

Couple I forgot:
Jazz Age by Ted Slampyak
http://www.graphicsmash.com/series.php?name=jazz

Reckless Life by Tim Demeter
http://www.graphicsmash.com/series.php?name=recklesslife
(This one's more "crime caper", so I'm not sure it counts.)

Here's a list of comics that are likely mystery:[:12d5a92f31]

  • seamonster - possibly suspense instead of mystery http://www.webcomicsnation.com/silus/seamonster/series.php
  • Deputised Experts - couldn't find much, but it's in the police/mystery/crime category at WCN. http://www.webcomicsnation.com/Spinneyhead/dex/series.php
  • Genre City: Lonely Information - quite possibly not a webcomic http://www.webcomicsnation.com/bb/gcli/series.php
  • Whisp http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eyetrauma/whisp/series.php
  • Nathaniel Bright http://www.geocities.com/frostjos/nbright1.htm

    Genre City: Lonely Information - quite possibly not a webcomic
    http://www.webcomicsnation.com/bb/gcli/series.php

    You would very correct in that assumption...

    Well, this webcomic is a complete mystery to me.

    I was wondering that myself and I make the damn thing. Thanks for the mention either way, Tim, I appreciate it.

    Wow! This is the coolest thread ever!

    Rapid Eye Movement is another mystery graphic novel by me. It's early work, but it's free-- http://amazingmontage.tripod.com/trespassers/rempro.html

    And Motel Art Improvement Service by Jason Little is a classy followup to his excellent Shutterbug Follies!
    http://www.beecomix.com/

    I don't know if The Spider Cliff Mysteries is really a mystery series, but it looks pretty damned cool!

    RE: Re: RE: List Mystery Webcomics HERE, please

    This is kind of a surrealistic experimental interactive mystery-- Ray Murphy- Detective of Dreams by Fufu Frauenwahl ( http://www.moderntales.com/series.php?name=mtlp&view=archive&chapter=9635 )

    --Joe Zabel

    RE: Re: Hmmm...

    Another quasi-mystery comic, at least it has a strong noirish atmoshere-- 319 Dark Street by David Wade ( http://319darkstreet.com/index.html )

    The subject line became "hmm" and people stopped posting.

    MORE! MORE MYSTERY WEBCOMICS! Ah-ha-ha!

    Thank you very much to everyone who's posted so far,

    This is not exactly a webcomic, but some of the episodes are more webcomic-like than others. The illustrator is Josh Neufeld, a well-respected cartoonist and creator of the truly great graphic novel A Few Perfect Hours. In any case, it's an honest-to-god mini-mystery: http://www.mysterynet.com/see/

    A Miracle of Science is an excellent sci-fi mystery/detective comic that's been one of my favorites for quite a while.

    Another cool comic which I've only discovered very recently is Agnes Quill, about a teenage girl detective who Sees Dead People. Creepy and strange, but fun.

    What if I drew in thumbs on the side of every page?

    Meet me halfway here!

    Very mysterious indeed ...

    Hey ya'll! I took that lovely list of mystery-type webcomics ya'll provided and checked all the links, dug up creator information, and turned them into a nice clean list: http://comixpedia.com/node/3044 Since I put together all that linky goodness ("show source" should make all the raw html appear), someone (anyone?) should feel free to adapt this over to comixpedia.org - which does NOT have a "mystery" subcategory (only a crime/noir one). If no one gets around to it, I'll do it myself when I have time (which probably won't be until the Xmas holidays; but in the meantime, I'm kinda running a 'zine here, in case anyone thinks I'm slackin' on the wiki).

    RE: List Mystery Webcomics HERE, please

    Mystery is classed as a sub-genre to Crime-noir, correct? I'm pretty sure that's what Wikipedia says, but I thought I'd double check it's true.

    RE: Re: List Mystery Webcomics HERE, please

    One more title:
    Lone Star State by Lonnie Allen
    http://www.webcomicsnation.com/LonnieAllen/lss/series.php

    RE: Re: List Mystery Webcomics HERE, please

    On the topic of mystery webcomics, this post in Bob Stevenson's blog is particularly intriguing? Anybody else see the spot?

    " Microsoft ran an ad during tonight's game four of the baseball World Series - for a webcomic! I feel a fool for not knowing who the guy was. Perhaps they made the whole thing up, but there were a solid 30 seconds of a guy talking about his detective webcomic and how he creates and distributes it using only a computer. The Microsoft angle was that XP lets you do anything you can imagine.

    "Any info on this one out there?"

    RE: Re: List Mystery Webcomics HERE, please

    I remember that commercial! But I think they were advertising the service with an actor (he didn't look like anyone I've met or seen pictures of) rather than a real webcomicker. Never heard anything further...

    RE: Re: List Mystery Webcomics HERE, please

    Despite claims that it is an Action comic, The Jaded is a Mystery comic
