* ''Webcomic/TheScumthorpeFiles'' is a collection of storylines that follow the legacy of the Scumthorpe family. Mainly written by [=MinghamSmith=] but had several expanded family branches that follows separate storylines.


"Machinomics" are comic-styled narratives that combine video game screenshots with player narrative to tell a story. They're like {{Machinima}}, only they're the static {{Webcomics}} version. They may crossover with other genres of media, or may be played straight. A straight-up Machinomic is one in which all the characters, backgrounds, etc. are created INSIDE of a video game or similar medium. However, a Machinomic may also [[RogerRabbitEffect import video game characters into]] PhotoComic backgrounds or may even place RealLife actors inside of video game backgrounds. [[http://digitalph33r.forum2u.org/machinomics-t2612.html?sid=772042fff4c18da50b50bea7f7d38e74 This forum]] bears an early example of this term being used. However, the term has now been adopted elsewhere, including on [[http://www.comixpedia.org/index.php?title=Machinomics Comixpedia]]. A Machinomic differs from a SpriteComic because the characters are fully 3-D, as opposed to using sprites like those in early video games.
