1/0

Mason Williams (otherwise known as Tailsteak) is the cartoonist who creates 1/0. 1/0 is a serial strip that follows the lives of the denizens of the comic. They are self-aware of their situation, knowing that Tailsteak created them and the comic from nothing, and as the creator/cartoonist, he has the power to be omnipresent. Each of the characters has their own personality, but they derive that personality from Tailsteak himself, as he writes their dialogue, but the thoughts and decisions are their own. Tailsteak draws each of them, and when they aren't focused, they technically don't exist, but can still do things off panel. Originally, the main character was a man by the name of Barnacle Jones, a character from the comic, Absolute Tripe. Through the process of losing characters to battles with other webcomics, losing characters through thought bubbles, and the creation and destruction of other characters, the cast has settled to as follows: Junior, a former living eye with fangs, now a ghost with telekinetic abilities; Ghanny, a former living molecule, also a ghost; Mock, formerly a golem that thought he was Tailsteak, now a shapeshifting ghost; Zadok, a woven golem made from native grass; the running gag, the actual word gag that runs around shouting catchphrases; Marcus, a living molecule; Terra, formerly a bear's tapeworm, now an anthropomorphic (animals that are attributed human-like qualities) earthworm; and finally, Petitus, a golem created from mud and rocks. The group currently knows that Tailsteak will finish the strip at the 1000 mark, which leaves them with less than 50 to go. This raises the problem of deciding what to do with their time left, and the question of what happens to them when the strip is over.

11 Will Die

Chris Farrington is the cartoonist who creates 11 Will Die. 11 Will Die is an anthropomorphic (animals who take on human-like qualities), serial strip that follows the life of a barbarian dustdragon named Jith-Rith-Ng. 11 Will Die also followed the idea of having a cast of characters go through a plot, where the audience would make votes each week to see which one of the characters they wanted to vote (kill) off. Jith is an inquisitive individual and a studious student, following the teachings of his master, a horned lion named Cl'th'Roth (the cl' th' is pronounced with clicking sounds). Jith can be impulsive and brash at times, but fortunately, Cl’th’Roth is there to help balance him out, and to remind him of his teachings. Cl’th’Roth is a spear master who has been rasing Jith ever since he was a very young child (he still is one), and is teaching him his ways of discipline in order to help instill proper values and morals in Jith. While he is still in training, Jith receives word from a talking taco, that only he can destroy the Crown of Nexino. Following the Taco’s advice, Jith and Cl’th’Roth embark on a journey to find out more about this crown. Little do Jith and Cl’th’Roth know, but they aren’t the only ones who are seeking out Nexino’s Crown. In a land fraught with danger and uncertainty, Jith must find the strength to become the warrior he strives for, and to resist the darker side of his nature that lurks just beneath the surface.

24fps

Chris Ward and Stephanie Burrows are the cartoonists who create 24fps. 24fps is a serial strip that follows the lives of two roommates, Jack and Matt. Jack is the resident film critic for the magazine “Stage & Screen” and absolutely loves his work. He constantly goes to various movies, seeking out their visual splendor, and then frankly stating his opinion to his reading audience. His favorite time of year is the Denver International Film Festival, where he spends eleven straight days watching movies and conducting interviews in a state of bliss, as he views the bulk of the movies being untainted from most of mainstream Hollywood. On the other hand, the Oscars are usually the cause of Jack’s bitterness for the year, as his opinions usually differ from the choices of winners. Despite this, Jack maintains a childlike innocence each time he sits down in front of a movie, usually dragging Matt or Lisa along with him. Matt is laid back, enjoying where life takes him, and enjoys watching a lot of porn along the way. Lisa, a fine arts major in the local college, is the whimsical sort, full of creativity and imagination. Recently, Jack’s sister Mary moved to the area in order to start college. She and Matt hit it off almost immediately, and this inevitably creates some mild tension between Jack and Matt, since Jack has known him for so long can see all of his faults. Fortunately, being friends for so long, they can work out their differences, and then everything goes back to the status quo, with just a few minor changes.

Now God has to enter Irving and search it for the manual that her sister tossed inside in a fit of anger. God meets up with two adventurers named Anathus and Roxy. After befriending them, they joined God on a pay-by-job contract and along the way picked up God's first convert and high priestess, Manami. Now God has to finish finding all of the pages of the manual, convince the people of the realm that she is the new God o the realm, and kick out all of the godlings (a form of parasitic god-like being) that are infesting her universe.

Such as her former lover Stanley, a reclusive writer whom she looks up to, as he helped inspire her to finally finish the book she was agonizing over writing.

Bernard is heterosexual, but his werewolf form (named Buster), Bernard, is openly gay, and there is nothing he likes better than hitting the clubs and partying.
