For those of you who enjoy webcomics, here are some that you may find worth your while. Almost all of them have not been online all that long and you can read up on the whole story without having to devote too much time to it.
The Wormworld Saga by Daniel Lieske. It only updates a couple of times a year, but the updates are massive and entirely gorgeous. That is truly a comic to get lost in.
Bug - this one has been around quite a while, but I only discovered it recently. Updates every weekday. A comic with bugs...I'm in love.
Runewriters - a fantasy comic that features a lot of magic, shape-shifting and a deaf protagonist. For that alone it's worth a look. And the necromancer has a pet zombie pony. Aaaw.
Demon of the Underground - I have no idea where this is going, but I love the b/w drawings. Also: ferrets.
Shiver Bureau - set in a Victorian-ish London, the world has a problem with Spooks. These ghosts cannot, for some reason, cross into the afterlife and it's the job of the Shiver Bureau to 'help' them. So-called Inspectres can make them cross over and Pickle is one of those people. He has just arrived to take up his new job and he's already up to his neck in trouble. I love the style of this comic.
Derelict - taking place in a post-apocalyptic setting, we follow Dang Thu Mai across the flooded remains of what used to be our world. Even without much dialogue, there's a lot of story to be discovered.
