Trying to locate a space research webcomic which I can't find again.

The characters were all in semi-puffy jumpsuits, and looked somewhat indistinguishable from each other. They were all working on a space research ship or outpost. The main character, a woman, was a botanist I believe. There were images of small plants growing in a space lab setting. The tone was wry and understated from what I remember. [more inside]

Help me find this comic about people "tied to their phone" (but not)?

A while ago I saw a two-panel comic, probably on Tumblr (since it's a very Tumblry sentiment), which was a takeoff on the "people these days just stare at their phones" genre, but which showed that those same people were using their devices to connect to friends and loved ones. Help me find it? [more inside]

Early side scrolling webcomic in desert setting?

In about 1999, I came across a neat webcomic. It was in a desert/pseudo Egyptian setting and each story would be arranged in a side-scrolling manner, like a roll of papyrus. It was beautiful and extensive enough that I remember needing to read it over many days. It rearranged my thinking about what was possible on the Internet. My Googling skills are failing on this one; does anyone remember its name or (!) have a still-live link to it? [more inside]

Urgent unmet cartoon need

I saw a multi-panel cartoon (not full color) online somewhere and I can't find it again and it's driving me crazy (admittedly a short drive.) A guy is shouting into the forest, "I believe in Bigfoot! Bigfoot can do anything he puts his mind to!" and Bigfoot is hiding behind a tree smiling and shedding a single tear. Please help me find this so I can email it to everyone I love.

I'm looking for a webcomic.

Recently, I've seen a few strips of a webcomic around the internet. I am trying to figure out what comic this is, but can't figure out the right search terms. The comic is in black and white, says [something].tumblr.com in the lower right hand corner, stars a dude who kind of looks like a bug, generally involves mundane but awkward situations, and in the last panel the bug-dude's nose starts to look weird and he talks about his eternal soul dying or something along those lines. Can anyone points me in the right direction?

Let me ask you about a fandom

I'm super curious about Homestuck, and everything I've read leads me to believe I would probably like it a lot. Like, if I enjoyed Achewood and all the associated character blogs and etc. etc., Homestuck seems right up my alley. However! My partner's middle school-aged daughters are cosplaying megafans of Homestuck, and I don't want to appear to co-opt their fandom. Especially because I am an Old. [more inside]

Help me find this comic. Google-fu failed.

I'm looking for a particular comic strip--a web-only comic, I'm pretty sure. The plot, more or less, opens with a small child tormenting an animal (cat? dog? mouse? can't recall). The child grows up, becomes an upstanding member of society, a model citizen, an all-around gem of a human being. He eventually dies of natural causes, and--hello, plot twist!--goes to hell, which consists of a cat/dog/mouse torturing him for eternity. I'm googling my damned fingers off here, and can't track this comic down. Any help?

Was this a webcomic, or just a one-off?

Looking for a barely-remembered surreal webcomic

I'm looking for a surreal webcomic that I stumbled on a few years ago that I can now barely remember, so this is probably a long shot. I only remember one strip specifically, in which there was a (possibly levitating) goat/animal that suddenly spoke in Japanese, and one of the other characters (maybe a talking mountain?) said something like, "Oh, levitating goat only speaks in Japanese now." Much of the humor was similarly surreal and odd. It was drawn in black and white and most (all?) of the strips were three or four panels long. Thanks, MeFi!

Please help me identify this comic

Can you identify this comic/graphic novel? Coming-of-age type story about a girl who is gay, Canadian, has a degree in (I think) ceramics or something else she doesn't use, and makes ends barely-sort-of meet by working as a bike messenger until some art or writing starts to pay off. It was likely autobiographical or partly so. Looked like it was written and set anywhere from the late 80s to mid 90s. I believe it was offline originally, but put online maybe ten or so years ago.

Can you help me find this vintage (1999) web comic?

I am searching for a web comic I dimly remember seeing online around 1999. ("Garsh, they had the intarwebs back then, grandpa?") The premise of the strip was the daily life of people working in a software testing/quality department. The humor was pretty dark and cynical, and got increasingly bizarre as the series progressed. The visual style of the comic was photographs of little bendy cartoon figures. I seem to remember the primary protagonist was a blue rabbit bendy figure. Does this ring any bells? Thanks in advance for any leads!

Romantic Encryption WebComic

I figured this crowd would have the answer bookmarked somewhere. There is a specific issue of a web comic that has the story of a guy, who after his first date with a girl, sends her an encrypted note for her to decrypt. They continue to date and despite her asking, he never gives her any decrypting hints. When she finally breaks the code, it's him asking her to marry him. I thought it was an XKCD comic, but I couldn't find it via Google searches, so perhaps it's another site. My last resort is to go thru each XKCD comic one by one, but if you know what I'm talking about please give me a heads up. Thanks.

I produce a YouTube show about media literacy/criticism. Right now we post weekly, on a schedule which is driving me insane.
