    I really enjoyed Anders loves Maria. It is heartwarming, sad, fun, and all that touchy feely stuff, and also very very beautiful.
    Nothing to see here, move along.

    Snow by Night is an excellent little fantasy comic set in what is essentially early 1800's Quebec, following a small cast of people mostly on the edges of society.
    I would really like to see a game made by Obryn, Kurald Galain, and Knaight from these forums.

    I'm not joking one bit. I would buy the hell out of that.

    I just discovered Strive and the Star Shards the other day, a fan-comic for this music video. Both are surprisingly good, and I've watched the video probably more times than I care to admit. It's just got that good late-80's sci-fi/fantasy adventure anime look and feel to it.

    Since I don't think it was mentioned, I suggest Moon You. The art is fairly simple but nice, the humor is great, and the overall story is absolutely lovely. It's about the last surviving man being stranded on the moon.

    Is it completed, abandoned, or still in progress? I admit I haven't checked in a while since the story had stalled when I last looked at it, but it seemed to be being written (albeit slowly).

    I adore Snow By Night, but completed it is not. I wouldn't call it "abandoned" yet, but its hiatus is approaching the 10 month mark.

    I'd call it completed. They didn't throw on a "The End" page, but the last page is absolutely an appropriate ending point for a story, and it tells a complete story.

    It could be a great ending point, but only as the set up for a sequel. There are too many unresolved threads otherwise. Snow's heart, Jassart, and the European gods are the three big ones that come to mind, and while you could probably drop the first and last of those, Jassart has received far too much build-up to be swept under the rug.

    There's definite sequel potential to be sure, especially as regards Jassert. I'd consider the first pretty firmly finished; there's a satisfying ending there if not anything approaching a full denouement, the third I'd consider largely an incidental factor to the story at hand that really doesn't need more, and even the Jassert one works as establishing a far future threat, as how long Jassert is sealed in is unknown, but it could easily be a while.

    Point is, if it never sees another page I'll still recommend it as a complete story. It either hit an end point and didn't explicitly label it or stalled out at the perfect moment for an ending (which is made easier by the chapter at once release format).

    1/0 is a philosophical comics without the 4th wall. In fact, the interaction between the characters and the author is the key point of the whole work. It may have rather poor graphics and the early parts are randomly silly, but it is worth reading to the very end.

    A Quartz Bead - a light-hearted fantasy story with interesting characters and great hand-painted graphics. The same author makes other good comics now that are still running.

    Makeshift Miracle deals with dreams, hopes and coping with reality - great example in terms of art and the story itsels.

    Marsh Rocket is sadly not available for free reading anymore, but it is still worth mentioning as a great cyberpunk-ish heist story with multi-sided intrigue.
    In a war it doesn't matter who's right, only who's left.

    I quite enjoyed 1/0! It took the idea of treating your characters like real people as far as that idea could be taken, given the comic's crude start. Too bad the creator went in directions I didn't like nearly as much, afterwards.

    Having read the end of chapter 18, I don't think it is a good spot to end. It may be near the climax of Snow's story, but it has not yet been reached.

    Speaking of Misfile, Building 12, an earlier comic made by the chap who wrote/drew Misfile is in the wayback archive in it's entirety (I've read it through twice, so I'm sure of it). It's a lot of fun.

    I recently finished rereading Octopus Pie, and it's still damn good. It's a New York slice-of-life comic with undertones of magical realism, following a woman and her circle of friends through their dysfunctional twenties and thirties. The humor is sharp, but more importantly, it has a strong sense of empathy, with even antagonistic and joke characters receiving an ordinary webcomic's share of characterization. I think the front page is going through the comic's run again.

    Sorcery 101, and a few "short story" webcomics set in the same universe.

    The author is still writing some stories (or was last time I checked) set in the same setting but several decades away from the first comic (Sorcery 101 itself.)

    What impresses me of people who actually end their stories is how they give up a more-or-less certain livelihood, instead of Simpsonising.

    I wouldn't accuse Schlock Mercenary of Simpsonising. (That said, I'm not sure if you are).

    In case of the creator of Schlock Mercenary, I can bet he already has a solid work plan for the next years. For the whole run of the comics he delivered daily without missing even a single update. Only once there was a delay, when the servers cought fire and it took a few hours to set up a backup site.

    Besides, the universe he created is vast enough, so that some other stories could fit into it as well.

    I absolutely hated that comic. It started out alright, but that mid-story twist is so massive, so out there, so far removed from the first half that it ruins the entire experience. This isn't a story with a twist; it's two completely separate (and incomplete) stories crudely stapled together, and it just ruined both.

    If you want a lesbian love story with a twist that goes to weird places but is actually good, then read Girly (NSFW warning). That comic is amazing in every way and is far better than YU+ME.

    In the Sci-Fi/Comic Book/Super Heroes genre, It's Walky is now completely open to the public, with present-day commentary from the creator. Definitely an influential and fascinating comic, if a little outdated and goofy at times. Starts as a domestic college webcomic, becomes fate-of-the-world superhero stuff, then spins off back into domestic life because why not.
