Don't worry, I wouldn't want anyone to feel obligated. I just want to make it easy for people to keep up if they want to.

I'm gonna save this option for when I really don't have time to write an entry myself. And I'd probably need to approve the subject matter beforehand (wouldn't want someone to write a whole post on Webcomic A when I already had plans to write about Webcomic A myself, for instance). And I can't guarantee that I'll ever request guest posts.

Of course, if you want to write about webcomics, there's nothing to stop you from starting your own blog, or posting about them on your personal blog if you have one, or even just talking about them on the forum. :)

Upon being introduced to A Softer World, my reaction is....mixed.

It's quite...not dark, but rather depressing all the same. There's a ton of things that just make me feel really empty/sad inside. But, at the same time.....I kinda like that sort of thing. So...mixed.

Well, it's more that I want to check it out, but then I don't. It came out wrong :P Anyway it's stupid >.>

I'm not that big of a webcomic fan to have a whole blog about it, and I don't know, I thought maybe it'd help your blog stand out more :P

Then it sounds like we have different attitudes toward blog maintenance. :P

This is the one that actually gave me the impetus to start this blog: Broodhollow.

There's also a Kickstarter for this comic that you may have heard me going on about in the chat.

Next up: Bad Machinery!

I have a long and complicated history with this artist's work. It didn't exactly fit in with the scope of my blog, but maybe I'll tell you all about it sometime.

This one was harder to write than I was expecting. I think I wound up using the word "silly" entirely too often.

I love Kate Beatton. Some of her stuff was printed in my national newspaper for a.while.

(Also I can't comment on whether her stuff is more accessible to the average Canadian because I'm a big fan of random Canadian history but I for one get a kick out of it.)

Unshelved!

Fun fact: When I was reading through the Unshelved archives, which took a few days, I had a dream that I was a librarian who used to work at the Malville public library, and Dewey was sad that I didn't work with him anymore.

I liked your analysis of Dr. McNinja. Though I actually should catch up on it, I don't think I got to see the President of the United States actually.

She did show up relatively recently.

And can I just mention: I LOVED reading through the whole comic archive to write that post. Re-reading Dr. McNinja was equivalent to re-falling in love with Dr. McNinja.

I would like to let you know that the only reason I'm NOT reading this blog right now is because I'm so sure you would convince me to start reading all of these and then all of the time would be gone.

NO idea what you will think of it, but I can drop a link to the tropes page for it here: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Webcomic/TowerOfGod.

Mimsy read and enjoyed it, said it was pretty good, and I ran into a mention of it on TvTropes and figured I would drop it here, in case you agreed. Give you some more material. Written by a Korean, though, but it is translated into English or Mimsy wouldn't have been able to read it.

Wait, so Tower of God is actually a web comic? I though it was an anime or something!

Thanks for the suggestion, Sicon. I'll take a look!

And, anyone who wants to suggest anything (or who already has): I will gladly listen to your suggestions, but I may not get around to any of them, and if I do it definitely won't be for a long time. There is a bookmark folder in my browser labeled "Read These Someday" and it is so full of webcomics I can't view it all at once on my screen. I spend a lot of my time reading webcomics and there's still more out there than I can ever hope to get to, let alone look at thoroughly and in-depth.

So, I'm always glad to learn of more comics that I might enjoy, but there's quite a bit of a backlog, just so you know.

Wondermark!

Out of all the comics I've done so far, this is the one I'm closest to. I actually remember seeing some of those examples in the post as they were being made. I didn't put in any examples that I had any direct input on, though. That would have just been too weird.

This week: Girls With Slingshots!

Which actually would have gone up last week except I realized that then I'd have two comics with "girl" in the title in a row and I didn't want to do that.

And now, Diesel Sweeties.

Facts about Diesel Sweeties:

-This is the webcomic that I've been reading the longest. I think I started reading it when I was 11. I even own a card, signed by the creator, certifying that I liked Diesel Sweeties before it sold out. (This was a reward for writing to newspapers asking them to run the syndicated version of Diesel Sweeties.)

-Have you seen the Scott Pilgrim movie? Well, the skull shirt that Scott wears in that movie originated in this comic, as the shirt that Metal Steve habitually wears.

-Merchandise from this comic also shows up all over The IT Crowd, but so does merchandise from A LOT of webcomics because The IT Crowd is awesome that way, to the extent that if I do a comic on my blog and something from it has shown up on The IT Crowd there is no guarantee whatsoever that I will remember and make a note of it.

-I'm tired and not 100% certain that I'm being coherent right now and that's not even a fact about Diesel Sweeties it's just about me and maybe I should stop writing.

This week: Bob the Angry Flower!

This is the webcomic that I have been reading the second-longest, since I was 13 or 14. It fills me with nostalgia.

A webcomic I find highly enjoyable, and would fit perfectly with Halloween, seeing as a large part of it could be called 'horror' based.

Thanks for the rec. I haven't had a chance to read much of it yet, but it's on the list! :)

And there's a new entry on my blog, at last: I Do Not Have an Eating Disorder.
