With the welcome return of Hyperbole and a Half, I'm realizing that the comics folder in my RSS reader has dwindled over the past couple of years as several favorites have been retired (e.g. Mr. Wiggles) or near-retired (Achewood). Can you suggest some replacements? [more inside]

Trying to find a Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal where the character menacingly quotes lyrics from a Train song (IIRC, Drops of Jupiter).

I'm working on a graphic novel. Should I submit it to publishers, or just run it as a webcomic? And if I were to submit it, I have a bunch of secondary questions. [more inside]

[Vague Webcomic Filter] I'm looking for a webcomic from the early 2000's. It was black and white with maybe a slight anime style to it. [more inside]

Several years ago I saw a webcomic about distinguishing between those who falsely claimed to be unpopular in high school from those who actually were. There was a young female narrator / investigator, maybe identified as the author of the comic but maybe not, who talked about interrogating friends and acquaintances to see how unpopular they really were. I think the last panel showed her writing in a note pad.
Anybody remember this? Google is getting me nowhere. I may have stumbled across it by following a link from here, but more likely from a comment than a post.

What is the webcomic whose characters are depictions of buildings? Or ... something like that. I'm sure this exists. For some reason I'm convinced that Khrushchev is a character.

Looking for a specific comic strip from an unknown (to me) source. The upshot is a woman calls her boyfriend/husband about her car not starting. Next panel is her fantasizing about him coming home and taking care of her during her troubles. Last panel shows him telling her tow truck is on the way, cab is on the way so she can get to work, and he has to rush to meeting.
I think I first saw this linked from Reddit and vaguely recall someone mentioning it may be used in one of those relationship books (Men are from Mars type).

Most comics on the web seem to be just scanned in print comics or the equivalent of same. Can you point me to any web comics that are making use of web/internet technology to make the comics reading experience different from print comics?

Can webcomics fans point me to some good online manga or graphic novel type comics? Bonus points if the story is complete and I don't have to wait for an update every week (side question - why is it so hard to find webcomics that are completed?). Sex, violence, serious, silly, whatever, as long as the story is engaging and the artwork is well done. [more inside]

Is there anywhere online a writer can find artists searching for a story?
Something Positive strips have reminded me that I've got several ideas for webcomics, but I lack some of that 'Artistic Talent' the kids have these days.

Webcomics: If just about anybody can make one, what tools/resources would I need? I have a good mental picture of character design, but my hand drawing is hardly worth scanning, so I might as well do it all on my compy (Yes, XQ, you can try to talk me out of it). At least at first, it'll mostly be standing-around-swapping-punchlines, so nothing too complicated. So what's out there to make me a webtoonist?
