Para-Ten is a webcomic by William Gibbons, a.k.a. Ashwara.
It concerns Paveline, a girl who falls off a bridge and washes downstream after forcing her brother across. Waking up in a shack greeted by an old woman, she's soon told that she's over a month's travel overland from her family and home. After learning some survival skills from the obliging couple, she starts trekking her way back through the jungle-like environment to get back home.
The comic is now completed, with 291 pages. It's certainly worth checking out, both for the story and for the unique watercolor artwork.
