Undescribable. Undefinable.

fantastic comic…but I think the main reason it is really unnoticed is because of the huge lack of, and gaps between, updates. But it is heads and shoulders above many web comics, IMO. I wish he would update more.

http://www.drunkduck.com/signifikat/

This is a B&W sci-fi/fantasy/superhero semi-manga-esque comic by Abt Nihil, currently 22 pages. The art and layout are both above standard.

However, the reason I'm recommending it is because I love the writing. Erol Intangibles has excellent writing. IMO, Signifikat's writing is just as good, in a different prose style. I don't say that lightly; IMO, in terms of raw prose, AFAIK these 2 comics are on the very top of my personal chart.

This may be a weird analogy, considering Signifikat's subject matter… but the writing reminds me of the novels The Catcher In The Rye and The Red Dragon (prequel to The Silence Of The Lambs). I can't tell you why it does… it just does for me.

You got that right Midge, it's pretty stunning!

Ok, I'm going to attempt to add one that I think should be read. It is completed, and happens to be by a wonderful woman, who I have come to believe is an alternate-reality slightly older version of me. X) Anyway, she's a wonderful story teller, and Castrating Bitch Girl is just a great read. Lots of mystery, philosophy, and more emotional content than you can shake a fist at. Give it a go, won't you?

echo this one completely.
The illustration is professional.
The comic needs to be read from the very beginning though to understand the full scope, because if one jumps in right now one would have some misconceptions about the content and storyline.

One of the top 3~5 furry comics on DD, I'd wager. It's pretty short on archives… just ogle at the art.

Dear God of Comic Books! Beyond Human is beyond wonderful! Thanks so much for pointing it out Kyupol!!

Nighfallen has some of the most wonderful coloring I've ever seen. I just wish the lettering/dialog was a bit easier to follow.

Just stumbled across this newly-arrived gem of a comic:

Doctor Stiletto

LOVE this guy's art.

Winterman has some fun strories with some fantastic art.
The current story line has to do with a modern day wizard trying to correct a horrible mistake.

Speaking of unnoticed… Erol Intangibles just got featured today :) I have a feeling Signifikat will be, as well. Sure deserves it! And another one I love is Hellfire:

http://www.drunkduck.com/Hellfire/

The artwork is truly spectacular. MonkeyMafia also did some pages for Heroes Unite, a community project involving several superheroes by several different authors:

if you like scifi action and really good art, you should check out JOHNNY SATURN!

Twilight Lady is also worth a look.

Not too much about drawing style. But I like the story of this one. If the drawing style was anime or realistic style so much the better. :)

Agreed. The story is fantastic. Shame about the cartoony style, but it grows on you/you forget it thanks to the story.


No idea if these are unpopular or unnoticed but I discovered these fairly recently, more or less. And, with my luck, I noticed them on this forum topic and am just being stupid:

Divine Leap
It's epic.

Triple Torture
Interesting and quirky art with an equally quirky take on christian mythology.

DIS
Speaking of mythology, this time it's Greek/Roman. Speaking of quirky, the art is insane, but awesome…wait, not “but,” insane implies awesome.

I'm always surprised about the number of people who get the lettering wrong. Bad lettering is something that will 99% of the time make sure your comic doesn't get featured.

I got to tell ya, on Nightfallen, its not that bad as ABG states.
I have seen way worse and on Comics which were featured!

Finally someone mentioned that comic. It is short (but he does other stuff outside of the comic), but the art is wonderful.

I know he's my little brother and I'm biased ^_^ but I do have to echo this suggestion. I think the fact it's a Civil War comic puts people off, but it really is an accessible-to-everyone, VERY funny, wonderfully drawn superhero comic.

He just got an unconditional acceptance to an art university in the UK. :) I'm so proud of him. :D

I'm bugging him constantly to start a non-CW comic so that more people will be interested in it, though.

Yeah sorry, I should have specified. :) It's all right on Nightfallen, not especially harmonious but it's clear and readable. It was more general statement.

I know it's new but I'm totally in love with Doplegager's Third Side. The inking is very polished looking and I LOVE the art style. The thing I find most interesting is that the whole thing is done in internal dialog.

It's got a guy getting a blow job on the new page to >_0 I feel sorry for the little kids, are at least me when I opened it up at the public library. >(


Thanks for the list lba, now I can actually suggest one:
Blip is freaking awesome, it's mainly really funny shorts, but has an interesting plot too:

The art is fantastic in this one! so much detail into such a tiny space!

KLOTECK OMEN

The most achingly gorgeous “anthro” comic on DD, I'd wager. Yes, it beats out whatever titles I had previously suggested. The author starts out a little shakey in the art dept, but by the last few pages your jaw will drop.

And then you will cry because the author has not updated since last June. This comic is dead, but you just have to see what's there.

I'm in looooove with Nightshade… the art is so evocative, I can almost hear her voice…

I'm gonna be stealing some comics out of here sometimes, even though I'll still be super picky. :) (Hopefully my admitting that isn't going to lower the quality of contributions…)

I feel like I can't share what comics I like best because I've already either featured them, am gonna feature them, or… hm. Well maybe I can share the ones I WISH I could feature but can't because they haven't updated or whatever… there's an idea!

Nintendo Super Squad Hand-drawn Nintendo hijinks. His take on all the characters is hilarious and his drawing style is so fun to look at.

The Confessional This was a one-off I found. The art is great, and I like the story too. He has a page size problem but I think you can deal with it for 10 pages :)

Er… hm. I guess I've forgotten the rest of them for now…

edit: ok here's two more:
The Battery Story
Sune By the same guy who does Prenna, but I like Sune more. I feel like I missed the boat on featuring this because I don't think he's going to update it for a long time now. :[

P.S. I don't think he was serious about 150 pokemon, it probably doesn't need to be on the list :)

FYI…less we forget, the thread was started to point out unnoticed comics and not recommend comics to be featured which may already have a fan base.

Yeah, I'm afraid a whole lot of the titles listed in Iba's list above, violates this rule. Either they're featured now, or they were popular comics to begin with. List needs pruning.

I just listed all the comics you guys have noted through this thread. I'll go back and cut it down though. I'll repost it later with any additions we've come up with by the time I finish.

Shhsh you. It meets the requirements and somebody suggested it. So I'm leaving it in. Other people in this thread have had their comics added to the list so I don't see any problem with including it. :)

And here's that updated list. Tell me if I missed anything. My criteria for popularity was if I could flip through the 5 most recent pages without counting 10 comments from different posters ( Excluding double comments and creator's comments. ) I kept it in the list.

Roadkill Theatre
Corpus Mustelarum
Vanilanila
