If one was rating webcomics for awesome, one'd be duty bound to tack Ursula Vernon's Digger somewhere off the end labelled "Too Much Awesome, Is This Even Legal?" And you don't even have to take my word for it; it was nominated for a Eisner Award, and that is almost *official* or something!
The story's main character is a wombat - yes, that is correct, WOMBAT - so I assume now about 37% of those reading have made a high pitched "Eeeee!"ing sound and immediately injured the mouse-button in their excitement to get to the comic.
For those who are slightly less enthusiastic about moderate sized marsupials (*raises hand* sorry guys, but I must be honest) never mind the talking animals. The main character is a *structural engineer*. A structural engineer who stumbles into a fantasy-land adventure, complete with gods and prophesies and vampire squash.
She has... about as much patience for the circumstances as you'd expect.
Lord Ganesh: Do you know how old the Earth is, burrower?
Digger: 4.5 billion years, give or take. Why?
Lord Ganesh: Ah. Yes. Quite. I forget that it is difficult to be mystical and cryptic to a species with a highly developed science of geology.
Plus the art is really nice (and on top of nice - *interesting*), and the world-crafting is compelling, and the humour is intelligent *and* LoL-worthy. *And* the archives have recently been freed from subscription, so now is your chance! Check it out.
