The final Opus comic strip appeared online a couple hours ago,
but the final reveal of the beloved penguin's 'final paradise' had to wait for the Humane Society to update its website. (An interesting strategy for Berkeley Breathed, who started the eponymous Sunday Funnie as absolutely-paper-only... I'm sure Opus fans who acquired newsstand "Saturday Preview" editions of their Sunday papers are especially pissed) Well, the waiting is finally over because here he is... [more inside]

No "Preacher" for you.
Many of you did not
think a "Preacher" miniseries would end well. Would fans prefer to be disappointed by the aborted attempt at an adaptation than disappointed at its not meeting viewers' expectations?

! A new online comic book is now available
*, and three feature-length films are in development. Remarkably, the comic was developed as a combined effort
between producers and fans; fans voted on five different stories and even contributed art. ReBoot
was one of the first TV shows to feature 100% digital animation and has a warm place in the hearts of many children of the 90s.
* sign-up required and their web-viewer is a pain, be warned.

The Hole in the Wall [via mefi projects]
is our own interrobang's
surrealistic cat story now being serialized at Top Shelf Comics
as part of their new Webcomics section, and it's definitely something special - pen & ink & watercolor adventures of two cats exploring a mysterious and dangerous underground landscape. More comics like this will be posted there depending on the popularity of this one, so if you love art, great comics, or cats, you will
want to check it out. This was a part of interrobang's Year in Comics
project, so if you fall in love with the Hole in the Wall kittehs (you will!), go have look at his other stuff, as well.

The end of Rice-Boy.
T.O.E, Angel Eye, Calbash (alas we hardly knew ye) and Rice-Boy have ended their adventure. 2 years 1 month and two weeks after the start.
Evan Dahm produced one of the most engaging and beautiful webcomics over the past two years and it has concluded. A moment of silence.........
Ok now, the good news. Rice-Boy is done, but further Overside stories are likely. YAY. [more inside]

Imagine a world without lightsabers—where, instead, every big Star Wars finale consists of a 10-minute slap fight. Thank the maker we’ll never have to witness such a spectacle, because magical and impossibly high-tech weapons are staples of nearly all of our favorite entertainments!

is a lovely and strange webcomic by Tom Siddell
. While its scenario bears a passing resemblance to Harry Potter (magic school, main character with a strange destiny, etc.), there's something quite different going on here. Chapter One
, for instance, deals with how to get an anthropomorphic shadow back to its forest home, using only a box of discarded robot parts and a young girl's initiative. And that's just the beginning. Need a more trustworthy endorsement than mine? Neil Gaiman likes it
