Hey everyone!

I was inspired by another discussion, and decided to make a thread where the ComicFury users (that's you) can make recommendations as to their favorite comics every two weeks.

All of the genres under the search functionality are listed here. Every two weeks, one comic of each genre will be picked by you folks, and placed here in the opening post for curious readers to check out.

Comics picked will be first-come-first-serve, assuming the poster follows all the rules.

RULES:
1. You cannot nominate a comic that you are listed as an author on.
2. You must say which genre you are nominating a comic for.
3. You can only nominate one comic per two-week period.
4. You cannot nominate a comic for a category that has already been filled for this cycle.
5. You must include a blurb, at least one sentence long, telling people why they should read the comic in question.
6. The genre you nominate for must be the genre the comic is actually listed as (this means that off-site comics can't be nominated. sorry! you can still participate by supporting your friends!)
7. You must include a link to the comic.
8. You cannot nominate a comic that has already been nominated in the past 10 cycles (see list below).


If you accidentally forget a part of your submission, you can edit your post/make a new post, of course- but keep in mind that if someone else correctly nominates a comic in that same genre before you get around to fixing your post, your nomination will not count.



- - - - With that out of the way, here are the NOVEMBER 30-DECEMBER 13 ComicFury User Picks! - - - -


GAG-A-DAY:



HORROR:



COMEDY:



ACTION:



FANTASY:



ROMANCE:



EROTICA:



SCIENCE-FICTION:



SURREAL:



DRAMA:



REAL LIFE:



CUBE:



OTHER:





- - - - And here are all the comics from the previous cycle, NOVEMBER 16-NOVEMBER 29: - - - -


ACTION:

Vitreous
imageimage
Content Flags: None.
Recommended by khkddn: "Vitreous takes place in a world where humans live alongside mages - people with magical powers. They don't exactly get along. The story follows a mage with light-based powers who wants to prove to humans that his kind can be good. He does this by fighting as many bad mages as he can, so if you like sick fights and special moves, this comic is for you."



FANTASY:

Marblegate
imageimage
Content Flags: V! S! L!
Recommended by Chippewa Ghost: "A pious farm girl and a jaded dwarf risk the labyrinth in this lushly drawn dungeon crawler! For anyone who ever plugged away at the infinite floors of a procedurally generated RPG, this is your comic!"

nominating Imp for Fantasy! c: one of my favorite underrated comics on here.

i'm weak at hell at "reasons you should read this," beyond i find it enjoyable (i'm a very unfair and unbiased critiquer, as we all know /s) but, ah...

It's a story filled with so many interesting concepts- particularly in the plot- that are executed well. It's always interesting to see what's going to happen next. If you've heard of "the brick theory" (which basically means you just keep throwing bricks at characters you love to see how they react) I feel as if this comic embodies that- but in a fascinating way. The art isn't anything spectacular, but I love the color palettes and the art is constantly greatly improving.

ah man that's so weak and generic but i swear guys its a great read

Snuffy, I think one nom per category per month will not work. There are FAR too many fantasy-oriented comics, for just one example. And almost no one is going to nominate a Surreal comic or a Cube comic (whatever the flippin' heck that is).

That said, here's my nom:

Science-Fiction:
I can't say enough good things about the wonderful character work and the subtly clever reimagining of superhero tropes exemplified in Pulse. I want to call my own comic the best superhero comic on the internet, but Pulse's awesomeness prevents me from honestly attempting to do so. And, yes, the story's focus on the lead's bust size could seem off-putting on the surface to the uninitiated, but Annie Chang is three-dimensional in so many more ways than are obvious at first, and her brain easily outshines her other attributes. Of all the comics on the web, this one makes me say "Damn -- I wish I'd written that!" more than any other. I really can't recommend this one highly enough. You should binge it in one big go and then cackle maniacally that you got to read one of the best superhero comics anywhere FOR FREE BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!

...seriously, it's shocking that you aren't paying Image $2.99 a month for the privilege of reading this comic.

I don't expect there to be a Cube nomination every month (or ever, for that matter), it was just unfair to exclude them.

The point is just to limit the amount of comics recommended per month. The top few genres have roughly the same amount of comics, so it's not completely biased against Fantasy. If you want the thread to refresh more often (say every week instead of every month), then that's a different issue.

(Also, one aspect of the rules I haven't mentioned yet, because it isn't relevant yet, is that once a comic has been nominated, it can't be nominated again for a few months. Of course we won't get to every Fantasy comic out there, but we won't be stuck focusing on a few)

If I'm remembering correctly according to someone who told me, Cube comics are like those Dilbert gag-a-day comics. Except being in a cubical makes it deserve its own genre.

I've literally only seen one of those since I've been here and its punchlines are usually waaay more hit than miss.

.. Mostly misses.

.. Barely any hits.

.. Never any hits.

.. The comic is never funny at all, okay?

Huh, odd that it's a separate category. Were there so many of those kinds of strips at some point in the site's history that the categories needed to be separated?

-edit-

I nominate Satan Ninja 198X for Surreal



An extension of the long arm of the 80's, this fantastical comic blends together the charm of a PeterParker-esque lead, with the insanity of nearly everything that made the 80's great.

You do need to specify the category, as well as provide a link and a blurb about the comic.

I nominate SwordCat Princess for action.

Great series, with awesome art and scenery, really worth checking out if nothing else than just to look at the artist's style.

Okay, technically I never said you had to include the name of the comic in your post. But I'm watching you, kelty.

Both added.

There are only 2 pages of cube comics. This "genre" needs to be done away with*. The only decent one I could find is Oneiric, and it hasn't updated since last year. Almost all of the Cube stuff is dead.


(*Kyo.)

Merged Doublepost:

RaccoonEyez:I nominate SwordCat Princess for action.

Great series, with awesome art and scenery, really worth checking out if nothing else than just to look at the artist's style.

...but whatever you do, don't READ it.*


*I'm kidding, of course. Thanks for the nom, Raccoon. I really appreciate it. And deities or lack thereof bless you for getting the stylized capitalization right -- I think you're literally the first one.:)


P.S. SCP will return with new pages after I finish relocating my ex, and then relocating myself.

I haven't read a lot of horror comics, but Blood is Mine is a really good one. It's a sprite based comic, and it's interactive. It feels very tense and kind of creepy, which I guess is the point. It has an interesting plot and it's just a fun read. My only problem is that it updates too fast for me to keep up.

Sean and Bailey, drama (at least it is listed as such). Why? Because it is interesting. You are asking from me, you are getting my answer...

Also month feels rather long time...

All three have been added.

I want to give the selected comics some undisturbed time in the spotlight- give curious readers a chance to stumble upon this thread and check them out. But that might not be very helpful, because without this thread being bumped to the front page, those comics won't be visible at all.

Any ideas?
