-->-- '''Burk'''

''[[http://www.neorice.com/ A Path to Greater Good]]'' is an original PixelArtComic created by Guido "Neorice" Bos. The comic follows the stories of three people: Burk, a quixotic hero who has set out on a seemingly impossible quest, Noah, a young man who seems to be developing magical powers, and Tobi, an extremely unlucky young woman whose life falls apart in an instant. The three heroes have not crossed paths, but they all exist in the same world.

As of the beginning of 2013 it has been rebooted as ''WebComic/HeroOhHero''.
