[[http://meta.fireball20xl.com/sog Shades of Green]] is a webcomic by Ricky Bieniek. Meta Knoxville, a 17-year-old crime-fighting punk rocker, narrates the story of how, at 14, he came to date [[FieryRedhead Nilla Aferson]], and how he came to have [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair green hair]]. It's every bit as ridiculous as it sounds.

Updates very sporadically.
