Webcomics Long-Runners

"There are people who are good at stuff and then there are the people who just stick around long enough."
Cat, Cat and Girl

Webcomics as a medium are fairly new. The first known webcomic began in 1985 ("Witches and Stitches"), but the medium didn't really take off until 1993, making it one of the oldest types of New Media, but still incredibly young compared to something like Literature or even Film. Running for over a year is still a pretty good chunk of webcomic history; running for 10 years means you've been around for a large portion of it.

Naturally, webcomics this old are a prime source of Archive Panic, so beware.

Since webcomics are prone to long hiatuses, please use common sense when adding an example: if the webcomic has not actually been running for at least 10 years, then please don't add it no matter what the start date is. Webcomics are sorted within folders, first by start year, then alphabetically. Discontinued/finished comics have a different set of folders organized first by how long they ran, then alphabetically.
