Any Masters of 'Go'?

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.

If I were looking for print comics, Bone or Fables could fit the bill

I need more story-based webcomics (or at least, comics available online)! Ever since I stumbled across Gunnerkrigg Court recently, I've been on a long-form webcomic kick. However, I've now made it through all the archives, and it's going to be cold and rainy here for a while yet - so what else should I be reading? [more inside]

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!

what is this webcomic

Webcomic, drawn in a typical newspaper cartoon panel style, sort of raunchy, with a douche-bag main character who is sex obsessed. Ongoingstories, not gag panels Every weekend there is a retro strip, of the same character as a boy. What is it?

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.

How often should I post to maintain an audience?

I produce a YouTube show about media literacy/criticism. Right now we post weekly, on a schedule which is driving me insane. Does frequency of publishing new content matter (whether it's for a blog, a podcast, a comic, etc) so long as you publish regularly? Could I do it every other week or monthly without losing people's attention? And what do you suggest doing to help make up for less-frequent publishing? [more inside]

This webcomic meant a lot to me when I read it, now I've lost it...

Tracking down a specific webcomic: Starts with the protagonist hiding from his landlord, then details his past ambitions towards working in the tech-industry--eventually culminating in a trip to a futurism convention that sours him on the whole thing. He finds a typewriter at a garage sale and resolves to live a simple, working-class life and write a lot... sound familiar? Thanks.

Looking for the URL to a comic on a site that sells swords.

A while back someone posted a link to a web comic in one of the threads. unfortunately, I failed to bookmark it and cannot find it via searches. It was unusual in that the main web site was a eshop for swords and other fantasy weapons. The comic was a bit of an afterthought and difficult to dig up through a series of links within the site. The comic itself was a tale about a son of a blacksmith who wasn't good at smithing himself. His companion was a cheeky intelligent sword that uttered acerbic opinions frequently. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

[Comic Filter] Help me locate an online comic strip

Hi, I'm trying to locate a web-based comic strip that I had read sometime ago. The main protagonist is a young girl who works in a photo developing shop/lab. One day a customer submits some gory photos featuring violent acts (possibly murder? ) and the girl decides to investigate the matter on her own. That is all I can recall. Does this strike a note with anyone else? Additionally, I would welcome recommendations for other webcomics that are favorites with the MeFi community. I enjoy stuff like PhD. and PVP. Thanks
