Unknown Webcomic Cavalcade

It's been called to my attention that I usually only promote webcomics on my own server. Well, you know, duh. That's my job. Besides that, for the most part, webcomics on my own server are the only ones I read -- for no other reason than that I'm busy, busy, busy, and spending time working on my server necessarily causes me to read the comics there. I don't have a lot of time for any other activities, period. My PSP is languishing! My books go unread! Argh!
But every now and then somebody recommends a comic to me from outside my little world that I can't resist. I Am a Rocket Builder is one of those. It's odd and funny (I mean truly funny, but not in an obvious punchline-driven way) and experiments just enough with the form of webcomics to intrigue, without self-indulgence or pretension (though I suppose some would disagree).
For example: Click the Octopus's body. Go ahead.
The artist has said that this kind of silly interactivity is "cheap," and has resolved not to do it anymore. I guess I agree. But go! Click! Anyway!
