Slice-of-Life Webcomics
For the webcomic/blog about Pinkie Pie and The Cakes, click here.

A subcategory of Webcomics. These are just normal linear stories told in webcomic form without any unusual elements to speak of — no sci-fi, no fantasy, no embellishments, nothing that couldn't happen in Real Life. That said, Mundane Fantastic and Embellished elements are fairly common. Informed Poverty is more common than not - few if any if the characters have any meaningful employment - working retail is common, or in a coffee shop or library - employment basically serves as a framing device. Homosexuals of various descriptions are statistically hugely over-represented and there tends to be a fair amount of "identity politics" agenda-pushing.

Ironically, these "normal" stories are far from the norm for the webcomic medium.

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.

  • Taiki The Webcomic

  • Tsunami Channel: unlike other sites, this groups several comics in the same place, almost all from the same artist. The most emblematic (and longer) of the works there is Experimental comic Kotone, a parody of The Unwanted Harem and its related tropes, with some serious moments. Other works are Magical Mina, a outlandish take in Magical Girls; and Love Situations, short histories who play in romantic stereotypes like the Unlucky Childhood Friend and the Tsundere.
    • Experimental Comic Kotone and Magical Mina don't really fit in with "couldn't happen in real life."
  • TVCIRCUIT: The story centers on the host of a tabloid style news show in Japan. When the show crosses her moral boundaries, she leaves to find something she can do with a clear conscience.
  • Tweep: Follows a circle of college-graduate friends living their lives. Remarkably low-key, even among the entries on this list: the first storyline is Milton (one of the main protagonists) getting a job as a barista as a way to meet a young lady working at the record shop two doors down.
  • TypicalStrange: Six Friends and their sketchy adventures.
  • Unshelved: THE webcomic that those of us who work in libraries read. That's right, all of us. Sometimes gag-a-day, more often arc-based, the strip focuses exclusively on the staff and operation of the fictional Mallville Public Library. The main character is the sci-fi & fantasy-loving, "determinedly ironic," lazy, Young Adult Librarian, Dewey, who always has a snarky rejoinder for every clueless patron. Strips are posted daily; on Sundays, the strip becomes The Unshelved Book Club, wherein one of the characters reviews a (real) book; readers are invited to suggest books for review.
