"A wombat. A dead god. A very peculiar epic."

Digger by Ursula Vernon is a story-driven comic (I mean, as opposed to a gag-strip) that has been going for quite a while at a rate of two pages per week.

The main character, Digger, is a wombat, who apparently by nature are very sensible. She finds herself far from home, where things seem a lot weirder...

I'm afraid I'm not very good at summing up things. What I like about this comic:
  • The simple but effective art.
  • The humour, which hinges on "oddity", which however usually are part of the story, rather than degenerating to pointless gimmicks.
  • The feeling of a larger world Ursula Vernon creates by making references to the made-up peoples' mythologies part of the story
  • The fact that Digger is sensible and pragmatic.
My favourite webcomic. Make sure to have some spare time if you delve into the archives, it's over 600 pages.
