FRIDAY NEWSPOST - Completed Webcomics

A couple weeks back I did an “abandoned webcomics” newspost talking about some of my favourite comics on DD that have been orphaned over the years. As an antidote to that (and thanks to bravo1102’s suggestion), this week is a “mission accomplished” post highlighting completed webcomics

This newspost was WAY harder than the previous one. Partly because many webcomics aren’t really written as a single story arc with a planned ending (some DD classics like Charby have hundreds of pages and are still going strong!), but also because of all the obstacles to webcomicking that we talked about in this week’s quackcast. In any case, completing a webcomic is truly an amazing accomplishment. Here are some of my favourites!


The Optimist



Those of you who have been following the webcomics I highlight may have noticed that I'm a sucker for watercolours, which this comic used beautifully. The Optimist followed two Lithuanian children dealing with an oppressive government and an abusive father.


The Ends



This comic was very trippy, but in a really good way.


Ruby



Ruby quite suddenly finds herself in a mysterious dream-like land with no idea how to get home. She befriends a psychopath in a straightjacket.


Imaginary Daughter



A pretty creative concept…a man wakes up one morning to discover that he's imagined himself a daughter and now has to take care of her.


I've mostly included shorter completed comics here so that they’re an easier read for those of you who hadn't been introduced to these comics while they were still going, but there are some impressively long ones as well like SHELL, Mask of the Aryans, Crossoverkill, and Acrobat.

used books - I think that was "Beauty Into Beast"? A great horror story. There was another one...about 50 pages, really cool story about a guy's journey through some sort of dreamlike world...agh! What was it called again?

I was always partial to fern's "One Hundred Percent Of All Relationships End In Tragedy So What Makes You Any Different" and skoolmunkee's "Life in 5 pages". Both have since completed and been removed from DrunkDuck.

Ooh, good idea! Except that I think I would have a harder time compiling a list of those...I've probably removed them all from my favourites at this point.

Strains Persona 1 and 3 comics also are complete.

I read another completed comic on DD once but I can't remember the name. It was a murder-thriller staged with Sims 2 screenshots. The story was intense and fun to read.

Do a post on missing webcomics! I have too many of those too! (you know, the ones that the author deleted forever from the web and never appeared again, most of the time the author vanishes as well)

Man, another nostalgic awesome post! I'm loving these! Funny you mention Imaginary Daughter, a reader suggested it to me and I've been reading it, really crazy fun comic so far. I can't think enough comics from DD I've loved and are completed, but these come to mind: http://www.drunkduck.com/Ultimate_X (funny one, I own the two printed books of that one!) http://www.drunkduck.com/divine_leap/ (an epic tale of a man that can warp between fantasy worlds looking for his missing wife)

I also wanted to include Manifestations, but all its pages seem to have been deleted. :(
