YMMV: Sunstone

  • Animation Bump: Granted, it's obviously not animated, but there are some pinups that are far more realistic, rather than slightly stylized.
  • Anvilicious/Author Tract: Stjepan himself notes that he had to work over parts of the early strips for publication because everyone went on and on (and on) about the meaning and underpinnings of BDSM. This resulted from the disjointed writing process, since he generally worked on the webcomic one strip at a time between other jobs.
  • Awesome Art: The comic looks spectacular, but the realistic-style portraits take this Up to Eleven.
  • Come for the X, Stay for the Y: Come for the well-drawn fetish artwork, stay for the characterisation, story-telling and sense of humor.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Cassandra, who stands out as the snarkiest snarker in a World of Snark.
  • Moe: Ally and Lisa are terrific at ratcheting up the "Aww" factor.
  • Narm: Lisa's habit of dropping "Dear Reader" into the otherwise well written narration.
  • Rewatch Bonus: The author will occasionally revisit older strips and add new material, such as adding framing story details to the 'how we got here' Chapter One, and expand previous 'pin-up' teaser pictures into full strips giving context to the original art.
