Online webcomics - graphic novel or manga style

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]

This comics newbie is confused

What is it? A Japanese Comic Book? Or something else?

We found this comic book (or whatever it is) in the house among the previous owners' things. It was in a box of papers from the 1930's and 1940's but I can't guarantee that it is as old as that. I scanned the cover and a few pages, but cannot read Japanese. It's as thick as a copy of Wired Magazine (many pages). Any ideas?

Y Cant Kats Spel Gud?

LOLcats teach us that cats can write, they just don't have very good spelling or grammar. The same idea has been used in advertising ("Eat Mor Chikin") and of course Far Side cartoons. Was Gary Larson the father of this concept, or were there other places where it was pervasive before he came along? [more inside]

Cheap comic books

In Nashville TN there is a great place called The Great Escape which used to, and may still, sell crappy old comic books for 15 to 25 cents apiece. Is there such a place in the NYC area?

What is the word for phrases such as "meanwhile", or "in an entirely different place altogether"? The sort of words you would see in the narrative box of a comic strip that contextualises the action. Do you have any rather verbose examples?

Adult (mature, not pornographic) comic books review sites?

I have just run across several good comic book series, in particular Chadwick's Concrete , Azzarello's 100 Bullets and the Sin City graphic novels. Its an area that I am unfamiliar with, and there does seem to be a lot of literate writing out there. I would love to find a site that could help me separate the wheat from the chaff and that would keep me posted of new good material. Any suggestions?

What's this comic?

I'm trying to remember what the name of an comic strip available online I saw several years ago. It was set in college and the main character was male and outlandish, always doing crazy things, etc. Towards end of the run, he doesn't like the "script" so he decides to make big changes before the comic ends, including leaving his wife and child. Any ideas? [more inside]

American Popular culture from the early 20th century?

I'm looking for sites related to American popular culture from the early 20th century: books, films, radio, magazines, music, dance, comic strips, celebrities — you name it. I'm particularly interested on the period between the wars, but open to great stuff from before (and during) World War I, as well. Little Nemo, Keystone Kops, the Lindy Hop, Enrico Caruso, Fatty Arbuckle, Al Jolson, Clara Bow, Flash Gordon, Alice blue, Teddy bears, etc. These are all the sorts of things I'm after, especially as they're represented on the web. Bonus points for sites with RSS feeds. [more inside]
