8-Bit Theater

Brian Clevinger is the cartoonist who creates 8-Bit Theater. 8-Bit Theater is a serial strip that follows the lives of a group of adventurers from the world of Final Fantasy™. Black mage, an impulsive person with homicidal tendencies, is one of the two original heroes that comprise the “light warriors”. Black Mage prefers to let his magic or his dagger do the talking for him, inflicting random violence on hapless passer-bys and only remains in the group due to his desire for ultimate power and his belief that he can use the group to further his goals. Fighter is a naïve, gentle soul whose blatant cluelessness (healthy denial or stupidity, depending on who you ask) is off sided by his awesome displays of physical prowess. Fighter enjoys swords of all kinds, and is working on a secret technique that involves using sword-chucks to his best advantage. Despite repeated attempts on his life, Fighter regards Black Mage as his best friend, and follows him everywhere. Unfortunately for Black Mage, Fighter entered into a contract deal with his new friend Thief, who is now the party leader. Seeing the “light warriors” as a way to further his own needs and make a little bit of money on the side through less-than-legal means, he continues adventuring with them. Finally, the newest member to the party, Red Mage, is a guru of various role-playing statistics, and has (or perhaps believes) the ability to change his statistics or skills around. He always has a plan for action, no matter how dangerous the situation, but for the most part doesn’t take into consideration all aspects, as they usually don’t work. Now the “light warriors” are being guided (whether they know it or not) by White Mage in her quest to save the world.

Alien Dice

Tiffany Ross is the cartoonist who creates Alien Dice. Alien Dice is a serial strip that follows the life of a Rishan named Shira Lexx. Rishan’s are a genetically engineered race that was created from the human race. Hundreds of years ago, aliens came to Earth and captured numerous women, in order to harvest their offspring. They chose Earth to be their target due to its relative obscureness in the Galactic Order. The Rishans were developed for slavery, but after people found out where they came from, they were freed. This was not the end of the exploitation of the Rishan race. Most orphaned Rishans were taken by the ADC, the Alien Dice Corporation, and trained in numerous training academies in order to become “productive members of society”, when in reality, they were screening them to see which ones would be best suited for their game. Alien Dice was originally a game that rich people played by using special dice to augment animals and have them fight one another. This, over time, became boring, as animals only had so much intelligence and unpredictability. It was only a matter of time before they started using sentient beings in their game. Lexx is one of those people, and has become one of the best players in the game. The ADC makes a lot of money through the exploitation of the players, and through contracts that the players signed as children; they are not allowed to reveal anything until they are able to fight through three sets of collecting dice. Lexx is on his third set now, and everything was going smooth for him, until he ended up having to take a human girl named Chel with him on his last set. Now everything that defined Lexx’s world is changing. Lexx finds himself torn between living the life that he so desperately wants to have, and finishing the game so he will be alive or not a slave, in order to enjoy it.

Bad Blood

Liriel McMahon is the cartoonist who creates Bad Blood. Bad Blood is a serial strip that follows the life of a troubled young man named Jared Jacobs. Jared’s family life is like many others, he comes from a broken home, as his father was sent to prison early in Jared’s life, and his mother, Jo Ann, decided not to wait for him to get out of jail. Jo Ann started drinking heavily and soon became an alcoholic because she was unable to cope with her husband’s sudden and violent outburst at a family gathering, the prospect of raising two kids by herself, and having to jump back into the dating world in her thirties in order to make ends meet. She didn’t have much opportunity to meet eligible men by hanging out at bars, so the quality of her boyfriends noticeably went down the more she drank. This left Jared to look out for his younger sister, Justine, and having both of them to fend for themselves, especially as their mother’s boyfriends became more and more violent. Jared was able to take the brunt of anything that his life could dish out onto him, which left him a little jaded and fiercely independent. It was these qualities that attracted a vampire named Eve to Jared. She wanted to create a living vampire, and felt that Jared possessed the qualities suitable for him to sustain the vampiric change without dying in the process. Afterwards, Jared wandered, half-aware of his surroundings, and feeling a strange new urge to feed off of the blood of the living. Months later, Jared returns to his home to take his sister away from his mother’s current boyfriend, J.D., in order to protect her, but little does he know that during the time he was gone, Justine has been at J.D.’s “tender mercy”.

Catharsis

Jennifer Boeke is the cartoonist who creates Catharsis. Catharsis is an anthropomorphic (animals that are attributed human-like qualities), serial strip that follows the life of a woman named Gwenivere Ivy Dahlgren and her strange collection of roommates. Gwen was originally in a relationship with a guy for whom she moved away from the big city, to a quiet suburban town. Not long after she moved, she ends up being dumped by the very same person who she moved to be with. This didn’t really leave her alone, as she always was with her stalwart companion, a Labrador-sized dragon named Rremly. Rremly was the runt of a clutch of dragons that was hatched over 400 years ago, and not long after he hatched, he was sent off to live in a castle, as it was the custom at the time. Rremly wasn’t so much used for his dragon prowess as he was more used as a playmate for the princess. Rremly grew up with the princess, and developed his loyal and carefree personality, which he maintains to this day. He continues to act silly and impulsively for the amusement of Gwen, as she is easily in touch with her inner child and can romp with Rremly whenever real life doesn’t intrude on their time together. On a whim, Rremly “adopted” a squirrel named Baxter, who continually puts up a sour front, in spite of which has come to care for his newfound friends, even if he doesn’t show it often. Of course Baxter has to be careful of random biting attacks from three sentient balls of dust named Romulus, Remus, and Bitey, or from stealthy ninja attacks from the newly acquired kitten named Aya.

Corner Alley 13

Emily Ryan is the cartoonist for Corner Alley 13. Corner Alley 13 is a serial strip that follows the lives three residents of Corner Alley, Greycity, USA. Greycity is a teeming metropolis similar to most major cities, and like most places, is teeming with the relatively recent additions of non-human residents. In a span of three months, humanity was shocked to find out that all manner of supernatural and fantastical creatures (such as dwarves, trolls, elves, and faeries) exist. Even more to their surprise, humans have found that these new races have found new homes and hope in the human cities of earth. One such newcomer to Greycity is an elf named Noelle Manchides. Having left her homeland of the Elven Republic (no human really knows where that is), she has become a US citizen, and finds life among the humans very satisfying. Being a sort of aficionado on human society and culture, she enjoys emulating human styles (clothing, food, hairstyles, etc.), and hopes to rise in human society. Currently she is struggling against the current system, as humans see the other races as either equivalent to monkeys or questioning their existence in the first place. She doesn't lose hope, but she does need to vent from time to time as her temper flares. She frequents a particular bar (Corner Alley 13) down the road from her house, where the bartender serves a peculiar memory-inhibiting beer. Disgusted each time she arrives, she always seems to forget that she has been there before. It's here that she meets two people who are about to be entangled into her life: a shrewd dwarf named Dusty Sturdy Stonebriar and a naive faerie named Rosie. Rosie, being a newcomer to Greycity, had her luggage stolen when the first arrived, but was “fortunate” enough to meet Dusty, the self-proclaimed ruler of the area. Now Noelle has to find a way to get rid of these new problematic people as she strives to achieve the prestige and wealth she feels she deserves.

Diesel Sweeties

R. Stevens is the cartoonist who creates Diesel Sweeties. Diesel Sweeties is a gag-a-day/serial strip that follows the lives of a loving couple. There is nothing very unusual about this couple, unless you think a large robot and a woman dating as "nothing unusual". They strive to keep their relationship going, despite what people might say, and really don't have many problems with the fact that Clango isn't human. Aside from the stigma against people dating and having sex with robots, Clango has other problems to deal with ranging from the jibes from Indie Rock Pete, to the rampaging tendencies of Red Robot #C-63.
Dominic Deegan: Oracle For Hire
Michael Terracciano is the cartoonist who creates Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire. Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire is a serial strip that follows the life of a seer named Dominic Deegan. At an early age Dominic learned that he had the power to see the future, but he soon learned that this made him special, yet an outcast at the same time. As he grew up, Dominic uses his gift of second sight to divine futures for money. This has probably made him a little cynical; as many of his customers ask him questions they probably could have answered on their own. At times his second sight works without his prompting, showing him visions of an unaltered future (meaning that he could still change it if he wished) that might be of importance to him. It's through these visions that he becomes entangled with another lonely soul by the name of Luna Travoria. Luna was born with slight tusks, a rare human birth defect, indicating that orcs were located somewhere in the Travorian bloodline. This constant reminder of a secret shame, coupled with the fact that her mother prided herself on being the fetching beauty with lovely daughters, prompted Luna's mother to enact a terrible plot. If Luna would end up killing herself after a visit from a Royal Knight of Callan, then the Callanese government would owe Luna's mother recompense for the death of her daughter. Her plan of belittling and diminishing her daughter's self esteem almost worked, if not for the timely intervention of Dominic. Dominic not only foiled Luna's mother's plot, but also managed to save Luna's live twice in the process. Perhaps sensing a kindred spirit, or because his second sight lead him to her, Dominic allowed the now abandoned Luna, to become his apprentice and help him in his theories of magical research. Now they travel together, their lives enmeshed with one another, as they continue trying to find a place of peace and quiet, but only if Dominic's visions will allow him to do so.

From his previous marriage, Kevin brought with him his adopted daughter, a hedgehog named Lindesfarne, and Kell brought her son, a wolf named Rudy. In order to stay as much out of public scrutiny as possible, they moved to the suburban town of Domain, which bordered the great Wild, where animals still held the traditional ways. Kevin started up his Internet Service Provider, Hare-Link, and Kell continued to work as an executive for Herd Thinners, a company that specializes in products made from prey species as well as trimming down the prey species population. Together, they had a child, a carnivorous rabbit named Coney, who looks just like a rabbit, but behaves like and has the same diet as a wolf.

Krakow

Case is a computer science major at the local college, and is a pretty normal guy, save for the fact that he summoned a succubus named Kia to be his girlfriend. Kia has lived for quite a long time, having known King Arthur back in 900 AD. Kia is a little naïve to how the world works, having lived most of her life in Hell, a fact that Tom takes advantage of.

This doesn’t mean that he tries to kill her, but rather plays little pranks on her, or generally gets on their case. The tables are turned later, however, when Tom starts dating Hanna, a neo Nazi, and Case wants to break up the relationship because he finds Nazi’s are evil! Once Tom breaks up with her for being taller than him, Hanna swears eternal vengeance upon him.

Ryan Sohmer and Lar Desouza are the current cartoonists who create Least I Could Do, while Chad WM Porter and Trevor Adams are the former artists who worked with Ryan on Least I Could Do. Least I Could Do is a serial strip that follows the life of a writer named Rayne Summers. Rayne believes he is God’s gift to women, and frequently feels the need to share his gift with them. Aside from the pursuit of getting laid, Rayne spends a lot of his time scouting out new conquests and playing pranks on his friends. Rayne hates the idea of a continuous relationship, and for now plans on being a bachelor on the prowl until he dies. Rayne continues to chase his best female friend, Isse Alie, as they have been friends for years and she has been the one woman who he hasn’t been able to sleep with, not that he hasn’t tried. Isse prefers to keep Rayne as a friend, but seems to be secretly in love with him (due to the similarity of men she dates), but doesn’t want to ruin their friendship. Rayne rooms with his friend, John Gold, an elementary teacher, who is almost the exact opposite from Rayne. John seeks a long-term, stable relationship, and his sudden statements of asking women he just met to start a serious relationship, tends to keep him single. This has caused John to become a little bit desperate to find the right person for him, but not as much as his friend Mick Alfa. Mick is a mutual friend of Rayne and John, but ends up receiving the most abuse from they guys because of his almost utter failure to even get a date, let alone keep one.

Little Gamers

Christian Fundin and Pontus Madsen are the creators of Little Gamers. Little Gamers is a strip in the gag-a-day format (having no ongoing storyline, but keeping the same characters) that follows the lives of the incarnations of the creators of the comic. Christian typically runs the comic with his poking stick and access to the scripts. He is known for his skill with Tekken and his biting political commentary about the United States. He enjoys most games (or at least making fun of them if he doesn't like them), when he can get the controllers away from Madsen. Madsen is a longtime friend of Christian, and prides himself on his pr0n (porn) collection. He even accepted his current job with the understanding that they had high-speed Internet access. Not known for his spelling, or personal hygiene, he rabidly defends his pr0n collection with his life. Fortunately for him, Marcus doesn't know too much about computers, and is slowly being ushered into the idea that the Internet has vast access to pr0n. He is an avid fan of the Final Fantasy series, and is slowly trying to fix his reputation between Christian and Madsen's ribbings, but they aren't making it easy for him. They all have to beware of the Cute Ninjas and their perchance for playing various ninja games on the Playstation 2, lest they be duct-taped to the ceiling again.

Namir Deiter

Isabel Gonzalez-Marks is the cartoonist who creates Namir Deiter. Namir Deiter is an anthropomorphic (animals who take on human-like qualities), serial strip that follows the lives of four girls. Tipper, a white and light orange cat, the youngest of the four, she is used to “benefiting” from the other girls advice, if she wants it or not! Tipper struggles through high school trying to find the right person to fall in love with, but hasn't had any luck as of so far. Fortunately, she has her sister, Snickers to help with her problems. Snickers Namir, a purple cat, is the oldest of the Namir sisters, and is one of the most levelheaded and responsible people around. She usually gets flack for sticking to the rules and tendencies toward mothering her younger sister, but she surprised them all when she married her boyfriend, Twix. Twix, a white and orange spotted cat, is eccentric in that he takes his mannerisms and manners from an earlier age of wearing tails and a top hat. He ended up taking the Namir name (much to his surprise) and moved into the Namir home when Snickers and Tipper's mother left the country on an open-ended trip. This amuses Blue Deiter, a blond cat with blue hair, to no end, because she gladly verbally spars with Twix from time to time. Blue is a free spirit, enjoying the moment, and the company of boys, but without the commitment. This stems from having come from a broken home, and running off to live with the woman she believes is her older sister. Fortunately, she has friends like Joy Satu, a formerly pink rabbit (now white), to amuse herself with. Joy loves computers, but is a shy person, as she felt self-conscious about the fact her fur would turn white in the winter. She is growing to accept this fact, but she seems to meet with several setbacks ranging from her longtime boyfriend leaving her and her friend Mallory having betrayed her. At least the others can take comfort in that she is getting better.

Newshounds

Thomas Dye is the cartoonist who creates Newshounds.

Ozy And Millie

David Craig Simpson is the cartoonist who creates Ozy and Millie. Ozy and Millie is an anthropomorphic (animals who take on human-like qualities), serial strip that follows the lives of two best friends, an artic fox named Ozy and a fox named Millie. Ozy is introspective, submissive, and philosophical about life in general. This is probably because of his unusual family structure, having been adopted at an early age by a red dragon named Llewellyn, whom has been his father figure ever since. The differences between Ozy and Millie are like night and day, where Ozy is passive and serene, Millie is active and rambunctious. This tends to get Ozy dragged into various tangents that Millie finds herself on. Millie constantly questions the social order, and continues to operate outside of the norm, which is fine with Ozy, since his background firmly puts him there. It's obvious where Millie gets her streak of rambunctiousness when you look at what her mom used to be like before society started wearing her down, and the fact that her father is a pirate captain. Where Ozy and Millie tend to go against society's norms, some of their friends (or more at times, acquaintances) firmly stick with their places in the social order. Avery, a raccoon, is an advertisers dream, as he follows all of the constant ads and looks at famous figures for cues on what is cool. Stephan, an aardvark, became disillusioned with the crash of the dotcoms but still struggles to show that being a techno-savant will firmly establish his popularity and financial security. Felicia, a sheep, is a typical “popular” girl, taking her cues from pop-culture, fashion, and famous individuals, she travels with her clique around the school and makes fun of those on the outside of the class social order.

Pearls Before Swine

Stephan Pastis is the cartoonist who creates Pearls Before Swine. Pearls Before Swine is an anthropomorphic (animals who take on human-like qualities), daily serial strip that follows the lives of two best friends: a rat named Rat and a pig named Pig. Rat is very enterprising, being ever on the look out for ways to get rich, meet women, and acquire fame. He feels himself as sort of an intellectual, but also feels that his plans and ideas are wasted on his friend Pig. Pig is pretty naïve, and a little slow witted, but he is quite happy with his current lot in life. Rat will get infuriated with Pig's little questions and his games with various people and objects, like his fruit club. So Rat tends to spend more and more time showing he is above those games and showing that he is better than Pig.

Player Vs Player

Scott Kurtz is the cartoonist who creates PvP: Player vs Player. PvP is a daily serial comic strip that follows the lives of the staff of PvP magazine. The PvP staff is as follows: Cole Richards, the owner and administrative head of PvP; Brent Sienna PvP's creative director; Jade Fontaine, a staff writer who writes about women's point of view toward the video game industry; Francis Ottoman, a staff writer who knows all there is to know about gaming; Robbie and Jase, two “sports writers” who critique sports games, but end up doing more playing than working; and finally, a large blue troll named Skull who has become PvP's unofficial mascot. PvP deals with topics from the gaming industry to relationships by using intellectual humor mixed in with slapstick.
