Zortic is a Science Fiction webcomic by Mark Mekkes. The comic focuses on the adventures of Zortic, a Little Green Man who's a huge Fan Boy for Earth pop culture; through winning a trivia contest, he finds himself the owner and captain of a spaceship. Along with saner and wiser female companion Zoie and Zen-like mechanic Splink, they set out across the galaxy where they engage in affectionate parodies, send-ups, and spoofs of all kinds of Earth sci-fi and pop-culture material.

The original run of the comic, now known as Classic Zortic, ran from 2000 to 2008, updating usually three times a week; it ran to over 1200 comics. In September 2008, Zortic underwent a Continuity Reboot, becoming The New Adventures of Zortic, otherwise known as Z2. It updates weekly on Saturdays and has reached over 200 strips.
