One of my favorites which had previously been featured but seems unnnoticed by the lack of comments is j giar's SoulDriver. He had been on a break for the last month or so but is about to start up with weekly updates this coming week. Has a sizeable archive which people could get crackin' on right now! I love the story…a mix of mysticism and gun fights!
check it out!

And then when you're ready for light-hearted goodness: Dis: Life is Hell. Parody, slap-stick humor, and wonderful irony.
Haha I love this! XD I normally hate the comics with the freakishly stylized faces, but that became part of it's charm :)

I know it's new but I don't think this comic should go unnoticed for long.

Engine is starting off very strong with fantastic inking and attention to detail in the art department and a solid story to boot thus far!


The author claims to have a buffer of around 100 pages of this marvel ready to be shown so now would be a great time to start reading before you get lost in a sea of updates!

You want to get in on a great series EARLY before this series turns 25? Go and check out AHAB!

Just 23 strips in the archives - masterfully done!

It's written and illustrated by the gentleman who does Bird & Worm - with a eerie touch! He's been away for a bit, but the creator is back and he just hit us with four new updates!

Get in on this nugget not now…but RIGHT NOW!

Sharp, gives me 2000AD vibes in an excellent way.

I really have to echo this one!
fantastic comic.
The art, story, characters, etc…everything is so right on!
check this comic out.
He updates quite often and has a huge buffer.
Definitely should be featured real soon! :)

Ahab deserves to be featured, too, in all its creepy coolness. :)

Al Schroeder of MINDMISTRESS http://mindmistress.comicgenesis.com—think the superhero genre is mined out?

Think there are no new superhero ideas?

Think again.

I came across a comic today which I believe has been featured previously but from what I can tell not a lot of people read it. It may be due to inconsistent and large gaps in updates. But Daemonslayer Heritage is one fun read. The artwork quite stunning, but even more than that the story has got me hooked. Its fantasy with a dark spin. The characters are intriguing and likeable. From the lack of comments I would say this one is unnoticed, but should definitely be checked out!

I agree. Daemonslayer Heritage is a nice looking series. It reminds me of old creepie or eeries, with that moody, grim, grey toned look. Pretty cool. :-)

I don't want to sound conceited, but I'm pretty sure it was through my efforts alone that Our Time In Eden got featured.

I don't know why this comic has not been featured yet, and there is a small group who regularly read and comment on this fantastic comic, but I think Bulletproof deserves more love than what it appears to be getting. It first follows the recruitment of a college student who has special powers into a corporately run protection service of superheroes and then follows her training. The current story arc details the debriefing of a battle that went bad for our heroes. The archive is a good size and not intimidating like some comics.

well it appears I was wrong. Someone pq'd me advising Bulletproof has been featured, even though there isn't a trophy on spacehamsters user page. But that may be a glitch on DD's part. Also this person advised me that even though there is a lack of comments on the pages the comic is actually second when it comes to superhero comics right after Hero By Night. So my apologies for posting a comic which in fact even though appears by lack of comments to be unnoticed it is in fact definitely noticed by its ranking and previous feature. :(

Its a great comic none the less. :)

I keep a master list and Bulletproof isn't on it. So it seems that it hasn't been featured.

I shall take it under consideration. :)

Seems we need a "Comics which are not unnoticed but which are way overdue for a feature anyway" thread!

Go and check out Wordsworth!

It has all the sensibilities of the already featured A Bit Cheesy (Great comic by the way). Except with people and not mice - a soft tone in storytelling about family.

Destined to be a featured comic as well.

Just found another comic I am in love with yet seems to have very little commenting action.

http://www.drunkduck.com/THE_RANCAT/

The only thing off about it is that the english seems a bit messed up on occasions. But the art, story, and characters are really riveting.

You should check this comic out!

I agree on RANCAT. Very cool, in an updated, old school way.

The trouble with most comics that address topical issues is that you so often feel like the creator is preaching at you. The “worthy message” is allowed to overshadow any entertainment value and the end result is nobody reads it, so the comic ultimately fails on both fronts.

So … on that note, here's a recommendation for a comic that addresses a topical issue but succeeds - The Walk.

The story of an ordinary soldier's experience of doing service out in the Gulf, it captures many nuances but - most importantly - it makes the characters feel as real as the situation they're in. Definitely one to check out.

Wow, I completely agree with Wordsworth, what a beautifully painted comic. I love it already. Good find, that.

Wow the Walk just blew me away with just five pages, I'm guessing the writer is not actually junglebean himself, but nevertheless the dialog blows me away. *.*
Great find :)

Too bad The Walk isn't gonna be longer…
This is the kind of comics newspapers no longer dare to print.
