View Full Version : Any good T/Th-updating comics?

2006-08-20, 11:32 PM
So a few of the webcomics I read update every day, but most usually update M-W-F. I was wondering if anyone knew any good ones that updated on tuesday and thursday, just so I can add balance?

One that springs to mind immediately is Tom Siddell's Gunnerkrigg Court. (www.gunnerkrigg.com) It follows the exploits of a strange young girl named Antimony who, after her mother's death and her father's disappearance, takes up studies at an even stranger boarding school. I suppose it's set in the present day, but the only way to arrive at that conclusion is by sort of averaging together the the fog-and-gaslamps atmosphere of a Victorian ghost story with the scraps of hyper-advanced technology waiting to be scavenged from forgotten storage closets around the school (or to be built from scratch by Kat, cheerful mad-scientist-in-training and intrepid best friend to Antimony.)

The art is exquisite, and supports the story masterfully. Through much of the story, the visuals and dark and a little clautrophobic, with a stylized edge that mirrors the protagonist's unfazable, slightly distant demeanor. Occasional intervals of bright light and vibrant color mark times when Antimony's defenses are beginning to drop...which, given her recent past, is not always a pleasant thing for her. She built those defenses for a reason.

And at the same time, the strip is funny as hell, in a character-driven way.

But enough babbling. Instead of listening to me try to describe what makes the strip so good, you could be checking it out for yourself. The strip isn't very old, so the archives are still a managable size; I 'd recommend reading from the beginning. (The current chapter probably wouldn't make a lot of sense out of context.)

If you decide to check out the comic, I hope you enjoy it.

(And yeah, it updates Tuesdays and Thursdays.)

Have fun.

In my entire bookmark list of three dozen or so comics, only two update on Tuesday/Thursday.

Krakow: (http://www.krakowstudios.com/index.php)
Lots of general random silliness and generally good stuff with a bit of Canadian-specific humor sprinkled in.

Marilith: (http://www.marilith.com/ )

Written by the guy who does Krakow, but he got an awesome new artist about halfway through. This one follows a pretty blonde assassin trying to get out of the business without much success.

Other than that, Tuesdays and Thursdays are dry days for me, except for those and the comics that update randomly.

A fairly good halflife 2 comic (done in Garry's Mod) called concerned (adress = www.hlcomic.com) has just moved to a tu-th schedule.
