It was in the top ten not long ago, but then he didn't update for like a month. :]

Wait, he's not in the top ten anymore!?!

He got like, 17,000 or something pageviews in one day. Maybe it was 30,000. I don't exactly recall.
60,000 actually. But me being on the top ten was just a stumble upon fluke. I knew once stumble was done with me there was no way I could compete with the regular fanbase and huge archives of the top ten. Probably shouldnt of done the podcast right then though, since editing and resolving the technical problems with the player took about 2 weeks…

The Quiet Field by UsedBooks is really cute. Only 7 pages in, so it's a great place to jump aboard. Wordless and pretty ^.^

Really nice and moving, it reads almost like a film :) i wish the art were just a tad more refined though.

Whoa, Quiet Field and F_in' Tango are both silent comics, and Tango's hard black and white, too! Man, I'm glad I checked this thread, thanks for pointing those out.

I'm not the biggest fan of manga-styled comics, but Flamines is definitely one to keep an eye on.

In true Japanese style, it's a futuristic SciFi led-plot with big mechs and hints of government conspiracies. What sets it apart, however, is the attention to detail in the artwork (which is superb!), and the story is already developing several layers to pique the reader's interest.

I caught Flamines about a week ago when I was looking for features. :] I agree, it's definitely above and beyond a lot of other web-manga I've seen.

Unfortunately it's pretty dead, but I enjoyed Braceton while it was alive.

As a shameless promoter of the inarguable superiority of scratchy black and white comics, I love A Girl Called Hate. It's got a really unique style, and gotta love the misanthropic eponymous character. :)

Seconded! This one should easily sell as a hard back novella, actually.

Just finished the last bit of prologue at page 5 so anyone's guess as to where it goes from here. Not much to go on but what I've seen of the art style and premise so far seems interesting.

Updates Thursdays.

A short, children's book styled one shot. It's over now, but it's AWESOME, and I don't think many people saw it. Plus, DINOSAURS!

Louder Than Bombs is a new favorite of mine. It's got some great expressive art and is deliciously sick. >;)

I have to say, this one pulled me in, it's called Crossbones. Fun little comic…only about 12 pages in the archives. Get in on it now ;-).

Agreed. Weave looks promising.

ironic humor, while secretly praying for a miracle.”

Saltwater Witch is new (lots of pages, though, because the author uploads a bunch at a time) and very very pretty. The storyline has lots of unanswered questions right now - lots of drama and a nice dash of humor.

Memories from Requiem by Xatiav is fantastic :D. It's very unnoticed in my opinion :3.
