  1. Gunnerkrigg Court is a great webcomic. The worldbuilding, characters and art are top-notch. Go for it!

  2. This is a hard choice – they all sound interesting. But I’ve probably been wondering about Gold Digger for longest. (Thanks, Matthew)

  3. Gunnerkrigg Court!!!!! I have read this web comic for the last few years and it is amazing. Character and narrative is well defined and complex. Art is solid in vol. one but then becomes amazing as the series progresses. Vote for this!!!!
