Mary Catelli | 679 comments Most of the fantasy comics I read are high fantasy -- or D&D based -- but Endstone has an odd S&S world, based in a warped and altered world, where at one point a major character arrives at a shop that's a combined blacksmithy and beauty parlor.

Mary Catelli | 679 comments Endstone is coming to an end -- not just the webcomic, but its story line -- so if you want to read the complete tale, it's going to be soon now.

I also note that the world has its setting rather more justified, even though it stays as strange.

Ashe Armstrong (ashearmstrong) | 205 comments I'll have to check this out at some point.

Mary Catelli | 679 comments Well, it's rounded out the tale. May continue, but with a different storyline.

So you need not fear it will end without an ending. 0:)

Mary Catelli | 679 comments And for people who want a continuing webcomic, I can recommend Impure Blood. Been collected in three volumes thus far, but also found here:

Martin Christopher | 67 comments I am quite a fan of Inverloch.
It starts with a flashback about children and then introduces a very unlikely character, but gets pretty sinister quite quickly. It's quite low on action and the magic isn't exactly dark, so Sword & Sorcery isn't immediately what comes to mind. But it's about a covered up conspiracy including necromancers and kidnapped children and it becomes all a lot more complicated as the story goes on. The heroes are much nicer than the average S&S protagonists, but I think the story still has a lot in common with it.

Bill | 1 comments Daughter of the Lilies is another good D&D / fantasy webcomic.


It may not technically be S & S.

Mary Catelli | 679 comments There's also Thistil Mistil Kistil Volume One - also with Norse gods.

And Order of the Stick and Rusty & Co, being D&D comics.

Jon Ray (jonray) | 51 comments I happened upon this one while looking up reference images for the artwork in my Gorp the Goblin novel series. If you like goblins you're sure to enjoy this webcomic.

Goblins - Goblins is an ongoing webcomic that looks at a fantasy game realm from the point of view of the low level monsters, namely the goblins. The comic has been going for about thirteen years and has evolved over that time, so don't be startled by the older artwork.
