I want to talk about one of the longest running webcomics I've had the fortune of reading
Questionable Content is a webcomic created by Jeph Jacques, having started at 2003, and still running strong and interesting up to this day, with five updates a week (Jeph, if you read this, I'm in awe).
Slowly, the cast grows to include Faye's boss Dora, Marten's friend Steve, and many more.
The comic goes from simply about Marten's life, and about interactions between all characters, their struggles with life, relationships, employment and in general just about this group of young adults trying to figure out life.
While it starts with lots of music-based humour (after all, the author DID get a music degree in college), mostly poking fun at indie bands and hipsters, it has grown, and thanks to having such a varied cast with different backgrounds and rich personalities, many different topics have pop up, leading to it being a very interesting read.
Not to mention how much the art has improved in its 11 year run! Paraphrasing the artist, if you don't like the artstyle, just wait a week or two and it'll change again.
|Give me your contexts for this image, I would love them.|
Be warned, though, that it is a LONG read, getting dangerously close to page 3000. I can assure you, however, that it is completely worth the time you'll sink into this. And if the art at the start of the comic puts you off, I'll just say again, the artist improves an impressive amount.
|You also don't want to miss out on these two.|
I hope you enjoy it!
For another read that is getting crazy huge that also has MOST INTERESTING character dynamics AND a huge cast, I recommend Homestuck.
For yet another long-running comic to have a delicious archive binge on, yet in a MUCH more sci-fi tone and nature, I recommend Freefall. I will write about this in the future, sadly I could not find a decent logo, so I'll just present you with a panel.
|A wolf AI, a squid alien cleptomaniac in a humanoid suit, and a slightly naïve robot.|
I hope you enjoy this webcomic as much as I have, and that you have a week as wonderful as you are!
Thank you for reading, Dreamers, and see you next week!
