Webcomics, pt IV

It is time for a few new recommendations!

If you liked Dresden Codak, there is a good chance you will like Gunnerkrigg Court. It follows the protagonist Antimony Carver’s adventures at the eponymous school/institute. The Court itself is greatly reminiscent of the castle Gormenghast from Mervyn Peak’s books but set in the modern day, with internet access, robots and science classes. It also has some parallells to Harry Potter with a boarding school setup, school houses and class room drama. Combine these two things, put them through a Dresden Codak filter and possibly you have something that approaches Gunnerkrigg Court. It is beautifully drawn with over 560 pages as of this writing.

In the vein of Questionable Content, we have the long running Least I Could Do, which is something so rare as a daily updated webcomic. It follows a group of friends and their somewhat inept attempts to live their lives. Rayne is the one most of the action circles around, his main motive in life appearing to be to get laid. It is not exactly a deep comic, but often very funny!

And finally this time we have Menage a 3. It follows comic book geek Gary and his troubles – which are plentiful. The name comes from the fact that he has to share an apartment with two other people, two very strange girls. The drawing style is western, but it has a certain japanese edge of hysteria that makes it stand out a bit.
