In the variety of things we’ve geeked-out about, recommended, and discussed here on Comparative Geeks, we somehow have missed talking about webcomics!
For years, webcomics like Penny Arcade and PVP-Online have been a major face of geek culture. But while the commentary, and near-blog quality of these comics have talked about the culture, many others have functioned more like comics as well, with an ongoing story, and with little or less to do with real life.
Many webcomics have been going strong for many years, and show no signs of stopping. Others come suddenly to an end, when the authors run out of ideas, or maybe failed to take off. It’s amazing, really, how many people can actually do this as a full-time job – though it is kind of like visual blogging, and plenty of people make a living blogging too.
What I’d like to do here, though, is recommend a couple of webcomics that are complete: finished stories, start-to-finish. One is Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire, by Mookie, and the other is 8-Bit Theater, by Brian Clevinger. I’ll try to avoid spoilers, and instead just give you a sense of both comics! Because I think both are well worth the read!
