Eightland is the website of the artist known as "Eight". He has created several comics, most of which were hosted on Keenspot. The comics are often experimental and random, balancing between genius and not genius. (The artist also has a bad habit of leaving them discontinued.)Notable works, among others, include:Road WafflesRoad Waffles is a webcomic ran between 1999 and 2005 at roadwaffles.com on Keenspot. It is one of Eight's few finished works, and could be called his flagship series. It was followed by three very loosely related sequels, of which the two latter were left unfinished. However, the storyline has recently (as of 2010) begun moving again, and continues as of this edit.The original story chronicles the adventures of Haley, a young blonde female comedic sociopath, and Bruno, a thirtyish-looking bearded man in a cowboy hat, who embark on a random and surrealistic road trip, meeting Loads and Loads of Characters who randomly join and are just as randomly killed off. It primarily ran on Road Movie and Comedic Sociopathy tropes, and grew a bit of a background plot during time (not that the main characters cared very much) involving alternate universes, Time Travel and a Zombie Apocalypse.
This comic provides examples of:
