Desperately searching for new webcomics

I am currently obsessed with O Human Star
, which has so much of what I enjoy in a comic: a feeling of personal warmth (as opposed to 'cold action'), no convoluted action-y shading/perspective art-wise, unique storyline, science fiction vibes, no purely 'sinister' atmosphere, and nuanced gender elements. What else might I enjoy?
I know I am unlikely to find something else so perfect, but if there are other webcomics out there which incorporate some of these elements, I would be very thankful to be pointed in their direction.
Other things that I have enjoyed, for varying reasons and to varying degrees: Templar AZ, Achewood to a degree, xkcd (if that even counts), some aspects of Shadoweyes, etc. In print: the perfect Lynda Barry, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, Gilbert Shelton's Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, aspects of Adrian Tomine, Robert Crumb, Daniel Clowes, (but only sort of. I don't like general sinister surreal-ness very much.)
I am really out of the loop on this stuff, and would appreciate any leads on new things! (Also, I am open to getting things in print or buying digital copies. They don't have to be online, but I'd be especially happy to find some of those.)
