and then Mike the Vomacka showed me Digger.

Powerful black-and-white art, fascinatingly bizarre characters, a gripping storyline, and arseloads of tongue-in-cheek references to geology and obscure religions. And it's about an agnostic wombat. And dead gods. And a wide-eyed silhouettey thing that eats shadows.

The cartoonist claims she was inspired by Bone, and I can see that--the world she creates is simultaneously dark and silly in that same kind of way, and is imbued with that same subtle sense of breathless wonder. This is a comic good enough to go commercial (and it sort of has).

ursulav's entries are generally great fun, too. And I love her DevArt stuff, as much for the art as for the captions that go with it.

Plus, she writes gearworld. omg.
