You Know That Show: Web Comics
You Know That ShowWeb Comics

The purpose of this page is to allow contributors to post descriptions of half-forgotten shows, those old classics that sit on the edge of the mind, with details and images remembered but names tantalizingly forgotten. Whether to gather trope examples or just for peace of mind, post them here. Be warned that, due to necessity, all entries may contain spoilers.

Note that the page is divided into two sections: "Awaiting suggestions" and "Questions with suggested answers". If you're adding a suggestion to an item, please move it into "Questions with suggested answers". If you're the original poster and confirming that the suggested answer is correct, please move it into Confirmed YKTS. If you're the original poster and the suggested answer isn't correct, please move the item back into "Awaiting suggestions" (but leave the suggested answer attached, with a note saying it's incorrect, to stop people suggesting it again).

When you say something is correct, put in a timestamp in the format of [MM/DD/YY] in front of your line. Confirmed successes are being archived HERE.

Please put new edits at the top of the appropriate folder.

    Awaiting suggestions 
  • It was a subcomic (or fancomic) at Bob and George, that at one point (this wasn't the main focus though) Sakura from Street Fighter was insensitive to her friend, only caring about fighting, and both (and other video game characters) where brought to life by science and Sakura had forgotten(or at least it mixed up) her memories of her creation with the ones from the game and stuff. This was a short storyline (maybe?) but it's the only thing I remember.
  • It was about a boy who never had a dream before. But he wanted creative inspiration so he wanted to start dreaming because a lot of people get inspired that way. So he goes to a luck shop and he was given a charm that braided into his hair. After he left somehow he fell off a bridge into the water and was washed away to another place. In this place it was improper to have your neck uncovered but he didn't know then a girl explained to him and she gave him something to cover it. Sound familiar to anyone?
  • It's an adult manga-ish webcomic about a high-school girl who gets nourishment from daily blood transfusions and is frequently bullied by an Alpha Bitch. Also features light Body Horror. (Possibly) on hiatus because the author said she wanted to finish her other webcomic.
  • It was about anthropomorphic emotions. I remember love was drawn as a heart (of course) and hormones (spelled "hormoans") was a weird little bug like thing with huge eyes. I read it years ago so I'm a little fuzzy on the details.
    • Oh, god, I'm almost sure I know the one you're talking about, but I can't remember the name, either. Did it have Hunter S. Thompson as a guest star at least once?
  • It was a manga-ish style webcomic about magical girls who controlled the elements, but all the characters had Turkish names because the artist was from there.
  • A Mega Man Battle Network Sprite Comic where the first game is portrayed with a Cyberpunk bent. The author appears as Sean (the Big Bad of the second game) and makes a big to-do about the comic being made in Adobe Fireworks. The title may be a Shout-Out to Snow Crash or some other cyberpunk literature.
    • If it is about Maylu, then the comic is called Sakurai Diaries, if it is not about her then I don't know
      • No, not Sakurai Diaries - this one isn't even a Bob and George side-comic. And we don't call her Maylu. (Interestingly enough, both Sakurai Diaries and the comic I'm looking for use the Japanese names, though the target used Higsby as Higure's surname.)
  • A comic I went to the webpage to, but never found time to read. It had a tagline like "Where people find love", and had two girls commenting on it, with one saying "But there's only one guy. Who's going to find love?", and the other saying "Uhm...", implying it was a Girls Love comic.
  • Two girls are attacked by a demon, claiming one of the girls is an angel destined to save the world. The other girl throws herself in front of her friend. The girl supposedly an angel exchanges her life to save her friend. The friend wakes up with no memory of the other girl, but then a girl who looks like the other girl appears at school.
    • Is is Misfile?
      • No, because the comic I found was well before that started.
  • I'm looking for a specific comic, I think I was linked to it from here. It was a "No items, Fox only, Final Destination" joke, with the punchline being about sex (as you do). I think it was stick-figure style, but as far as I can tell it's not from XKCD.
  • I'm looking for a rather obscure webcomic here. My memory is a little fuzzy, but I'll try my best. The comic revolves around these two fox furries, brother and sister, both of whom are descended from a Goddess of some sort. Both of them also have a fair number of tails (the actual number eludes me). The two steal a magic ship that uses super-colourful roses as its power source in order to get enough power to travel to heaven. And yes, I'm perfectly aware of how weird that sounds.
  • I'm trying to remember an old, old, old Sprite Comic, from back in the Bob and George days when they were all the rage. I can't remember much, but I do remember it mixed Mega Man sprites with sprites from the Sonic games, and that the main characters were called Blitz and Krieg. That's as far as I remember, and I've found nothing in repeated searches.
  • I remember this photo comic made with Lego photographs and Photoshop that used the setting and characters from Star Wars, but the plot diverged wildly and got very weird. I remember one part on Endor where the Imperials had ships that turned into bridges or something, and later there was a Rebel (?) named Jesus. It wasn't Irregular Webcomic.
    • Legostar galactica maybe ? [1]
      • Nope. This one had the Star Wars characters as the main cast. If it helps, it started with Luke on the Second Death Star.
  • A webcomic, in strip format, about a lesbian librarian. It used a lot of clip art, and I think it was on Livejournal.

    Questions with suggested answers 
  • The premise of this comment is stuck in my mind: "HE'S a cantaloupe! SHE'S a rabbit with a heart of gold! Together — they fight crime!" Though it's possible it was the cantaloupe with a heart of gold. IIRC, it was called "Bunny and Cantaloupe", but Google is failing me on this.
  • I'm looking for a webcomic I used to read years ago. It was in b/w and manga style (but I might be mistaken here). The plot was about a half-elf girl who was on a quest to find... something, a place I think. It had to do with a school assignment. She had a talking black cat as a familiar and the cat constantly mocked her. In her world, humans and elves were at war and the protagonist was considered an outcast by her fullblood elf (or possibly human) grandfather, because she aged more quickly (or more slowly - again I don't remember which way it was) than the rest of the family.
  • What if Oz was real? The dead body of Scraps is found so some organization sends a group into a portal thing above Gale household. Do any of you know what webcomic that is/was? I can't remember thus cannot refind it.
  • It was shown to me by a friend after it had finished, and I had read it all in one sitting, so fairly short. There were three girls, representing magic, strength, and intelligence (or technology) who were like reincarnations of past heroes fighting some evil. As I recall, it was 4-panel, and they were selling a book of it (trying to find the site to hopefully buy the book, in fact), but neither me nor my friend can think of the name.
  • A slice-of-life comic with two teenage sisters who bantered. I think one had blonde hair, the other was a brunette. And maybe one was named "Jen." There was a four panel layout, at least for the first strips. I saw a picture on a trope page, so it might have it's own page? But I forget the name, so...
  • It was a series of short stories set in a very dark future. The only one I can remember out of all the stories is one about mass producing human weapons. They would abduct people off the streets and torture them almost Clockwork Orange style into hating human faces; they'd put them in this apparatus where their head was in a box with a viewscreen and their body was kept outside, numb and maintained. Their eyelids were removed and shockers were placed on their temples. They'd be shown picture after picture, and when one with a human face showed up, they'd be shocked. After that, a partition would slide up in the middle to reveal another person in an identical situation. From then on, the shocks never stopped. The person the character in focus was across from was already completely insane; because of the chemicals being injected into them, they couldn't sleep and their voices never wore out, so the crazy man never stopped screaming about ripping off/destroying the character's face. Eventually the character went completely mad. He was then released into the public with a special bag over his head that made him blind and gauntlet-claws. The bag became transparent, the man saw faces, and destroyed them because of the rage and physical pain he'd been conditioned to feel. He killed about 5 people before the police gunned him down.
  • There was a webcomic featured on "Your Webcomic is Bad and You Should Feel Bad" which is unfortunately down now. This was supposed to be a thousand-page epic, but stopped midway through. The comic had decent art, which is why I'm trying to find it.
    • The Broken Mirror? (YWIB review archived here.) Unfortunately it's gone offline, and archive.org seems to only have a few pages, but you can still check out the artist's Deviantart site.
  • A webcomic that combined Slice of Life with the random adventures of a group of students in battling demons, though when I remember reading it, there was more Slice of Life than demons. One character was a gay, Ambiguously Brown not-so-Badass Longcoat who also wore a leash and dog collar everywhere. At the time I stopped reading us, he was doing a gig with the band he used to be in, and one of the members was his ex-lover; his female friend was berating him for going back to said former lover when he'd been so bad to him.
  • A sprite comic in the Final Fantasy VI World of Ruin on an isolated, off-map continent. A mysterious ghost is involved.
    • Probably the Fortuna Saga. Completed a couple years back? Rather hard to follow? Page seems to be having some SQL problems right now, but here it is.
  • A Magical Girl comic with a strong focus on Snow Means Love. The Big Bad is a yuki-onna or Snow Queen of some kind that freezes people to death in her sleep. The heroine wants to be a cop and is interested in crime (I remember her fangirling "Murder, murder, murder!" while reading the paper), and the Magical Girl is sealed inside a mirror and can only come out to switch places with said heroine. I think the Mysterious Protector was named Mamoru and was in love with the Magical Girl, in some kind of Sailor Moon reference.
    • I think you're talking about Bound: Yukionna! One of my friends on Livejournal was one of the two working on it.
  • A post-WWIII comic in which the hero beats up some thugs with a stale baguette. Haqd the word "Ghost" in the title followed by a four-digit number, and I think the big bad was some skelewton-looking guy that's immortal.
    • This is most likely Ghost 2138
  • A gag-comic (based on the artist's life?) with heavy use of light blue for color. Some comics I remember include the main character opening a banana and discovering a spider, her friend buying toys for his sister and being crushed on by a guy with dreadlocks, and a girl cosplaying as Belle from Beauty and the Beast screaming about not being able to find an escalator/elevator.
    • Well, I don't remember any of those particular strips being in it — not that I read it much — but the first thing I think of when I hear of a blue-colored, autobiographical gag strip is Boxjam's Doodle.
      • No, that's not it. I think it was part of the artist's main site. Another comic had a title page (more blue coloring) with a full-bodied woman on it. Someone mentioned that it had a very "Spumco" aesthetic.
    • "Shrub Monkeys?"
  • A slice-of-life comic hosted on deviantART, with very clean and professional-looking artwork, about a four-year-old girl in the 1950s. There weren't many strips and most of them were just sweet anecdotes without a real punchline. I remember one involved her doing laundry with her mother, and maybe there was one about playing in the rain.
  • A bizarre Feghoot comic about a sci-fi would where a facility grows Artificial Humans to produce some sort of liquid sustinece. It was narrated by one of these creatures, and the final scene had him escaping by crashing through a wall and revealing that he looks like the Kool-Aid Man.
    • This? Seems to be a one-shot.
