Webcomics. This is a list of my recommends. I love great combinations of art, characters and story. My preference is towards fantasy elements – comics with a dash of fantasy or the supernatural – as well as slice-of-life, and autobio comics.
I’ve been reading webcomics since the early 2000s, when a classmate introduced me to one (likely Avalon or Ozy and Millie). In the 2010s, I was reading them weekly, only slightly obsessively.
After gaining more confidence about posting my recommendations, I started this list in 2014, and have periodically updated it since then. This page was previously titled “YSK (You Should Know) about these webcomics“.

You might have seen the lovely comic illustrations on my post Lateness Culture, which I commissioned from a local artist.
I was happy in 2016 to see a rise in Brunei-created comics on Twitter. If I ever find the list again, I will post them here.This page was last updated 2022-01-12 10:27:07. Anything broken? Contact Me
