This one is truly amazing. Unequivocally.
It's the first truly amazing comic I've seen since, um… (checks)… Sept 2007. It was a comic by the author of Scorch which she had since taken off the net.
I'd say Erol has a slight edge over that comic purely because Erol has excellent writing, as well as excellent colors and art.
Definitely faving this. Even though the new DD format makes me extremely irritated and much less likely to browse thru DD for fun, now.

I know one. It hasn't updated in a while though but CDLM. Done by a friend of mine from Gaiaonline. Riz was one of the people who originally helped me with my comic and that's why I got into doing guest comics and crossovers was because o' her. Short and very much a strip, but fun. I think Banky said it best “Good, chick stuff, but good.”

But I'm biased because it's a friend's comic.

cs3ink: Yeah, I said these guys should be doing Whitewolf's interior webcomic design for their Exalted 2e line of RPGs.

Stunning stuff.

If I ran a studio like Whitewolf, I'd snap them up in a shot!

One AMhttp://www.drunkduck.com/one_am is a noir crime story done in black and white. It's about 50 pages in and you have to read from the beginning… but it's worth it to get caught up.

This one is a bit new, but I think it's shaping up to be a nice little love story:

Ugh - linkies don't seem to work as well as they used to…

Hmmm…I'll be on the lookout for romance comics for Skullbie! Have you read Valiant? I just found it–it's complete (as in ended now :(..), but it looks pretty good!

www.drunkduck.com/valiant

I found a comic today that has great art, and from what I've read the story is pretty nice, too.

As far as I know, Gott Gauss hasn't been featured, but there're enough pages there to get a good feel for it. It has some of the best and most-detailed manga-styled art on DD, I believe.

Gott Gauss is the one of the few manga I've seen on DD that actually seems printworthy. Most the rest of the manga, while obviously created with a lot of love & passion, tends to be from wannabes.

This is pro-level stuff. Gott Gauss is only the second DD manga I've faved.

I'm surprised it hasn't been featured.

Thanks for the tip.

Try this one. It's a fantasy comic with a good sized archive. Art style is greyscale with heavy blacks, and greys that look hand-painted (but I think the author said is CG).

The art in the beginning is good, but I browsed at the latest pages and it really looks magnificent. I dunno about the story; haven't read it yet.

Now if you say that about Made-Up Stories (whenever I get around to posting it) I'll be happy :)

I just said it has *shakes fist* Last April actually (So was Daemonslayers Heritage which Mlai just mentioned)

It's kinda sad that even though we try and feature good comics, not enough people know about them even a year later :[

Well if the features had been WORKING last week you would know if it had been or not T_T

Holy fook…

Everybody needs to check out Our Time in Eden. It's drawn by Ben Steeves of ZomBen, and the first page alone is one of the best I've ever seen.

It only has seven pages up, so now is a perfect time to start reading. You will not regret it.

At first glance, the art style seems to clash with the story… but because the artist puts so much effort into the backgrounds and shadows, you should be able to overlook it soon enough.

While there is a lot of effort put into the prose as well… now that I've graduated from college, that sort of self-absorbed monolog kinda puts me on Emo Alert. But it's only for the 1st 2 pages. Afterwards you return to cinematic storytelling.
