Sci-Fi Webcomics
A subcategory of Webcomics involving science fiction-based plotlines. Pretty much anything that makes regular, plot-intensive use of objects which are scientifically fantastic qualifies here.

We know that drawing the line between these and fantasy can get a bit confusing, so just use your best judgement. However, if it's a modern-day setting with only a few sci-fi elements for humorous effect, then it's probably Embellished rather than sci-fi.


Feel free to add comics to the list in alphabetical order. All links should be Wiki Words, even if we don't have a page for the comic yet, or you'll break the new indexing system. If a page is added for a work, please remove the external link.
