    Geektastic Webcomics That Deserve More Attention Than They Have Received

    There are an absolute plethora of webcomics out there. Some have lasted for years while others are only just now starting out. Some are known for their humor, their brevity, their wit, their unique style or really any combination of these and many more. Some follow strict linear plots while others are just a jumbled mass of comics with a sort of tangible reality stretched to cover them. So, the chances are good that there’s at least one that will strike your incredibly niche fancy. Due to the ways in which the geeky demographics mix, if you’re reading this list on this site, chances are even better for at least one if not a whole bunch to be spot on.

    Earthworm Jim Creator Makes New Webcomic, Ratfist

    Earthworm Jim and The Neverhood creator, Doug TenNapel, recently released a new webcomic entitled Ratfist. Though Ratfist's power hasn't yet been described, the two panels above, coupled with the hero's name, pretty much let us all know where the comic is headed, barring some kind of rat-based twist. Funnily enough, Ratfist also has a pet rat that I'm hoping spars with his probable future fist-rat. Why should anyone care about Ratfist? Because it's by the creator of Earthworm Jim and The Neverhood, man! If you don't know why that matters: a) shame on you and b) read on past the break.

    “Axe Cop” Creators Trade Seats, Results Amazing

    Axe Cop found the perfect comedic alchemy between brothers Ethan Nicolle (age 30) and Malachi Nicolle (age 6), and has become a mainstay of webcomics since its debut in January 2010. The strength of the comic is not so much the story, but the production process. Each comic is written by Malachai and then drawn and interpreted by his older brother. The result has been that violent, anarchic kind of humor that only young boys can generate, spawning such memorable phrases as:
    We should put these heads on a stick and hide bombs in them.
    All of that changed on Thursday, when Malachai and Ethan switched roles putting the adult in the writer's chair. According to Ethan, who runs the website, the final product was not quite what he had intended.
    I had a lot more I wanted to do in this story, but Malachai made an executive decision three panels in that he was bored and did not want to draw any more. So, my story about the Moon Warriors fighting a bear became the story of the Moon Warriors being eaten by the God of All Bears.
    Frequent Axe Cop readers should note that while the comic is considered canon, the Moon Warriors are much beloved by Malachai, and are likely to return some time soon.
