Shadow Sprinters

Shadow SprintersDo you like shonen manga? How about shonen manga with action scenes and a sci-fi theme? If yes, I suggest you read a few pages of Shadow Sprinters by Smackjeeves user Minyi. The comic's got the characteristics of a shonen manga, the spirit of a shonen manga, and the story of a shonen manga. The art looks professionally done, and the action scenes also look professionally done.

Here's the introduction that Minyi uses for the comic:
A universe alternative to our own, technology being far more advanced. The Shadow Particles, or dark matter as we know it, has dominated most of Earth's atmosphere. People developed a certain gear which allows the user to 'touch' and 'control' these molcules. Over time, a certain dangerous sport was made from this. Shadow Sprint.

Shadow Sprinters launched on Smackjeeves in early June 2009, and has updates about once every few weeks.

Death Brigade

Death Brigade
I'm not good at putting things into genre, but with demi luv's webcomic called Death Brigade I've got to put it into humour. The comic is about a trio that specializes in services like search and destroy, and object/human retrievals. Each member works in a different department [according to the artist]: Demi is a 13-year-old in the departments of espionage and beatings, Kami's in assasination and genocide, and Cappu, the leader, is part of the brainwashing and extractions departments. The comic's got its funny moments and some serious moments to them, so I'm still unsure if humour is the best category to place it in.

The manga art style suits the fun yet serious story well and the characters' situations and personalities make the comic. The comic is hosted by Drunk Duck and updates every few days.

sunshinable comics and stories of average broken-hearted kids

sunshinable comicssunshinable comics is a series of comic strips by gra[s]ie b. hosted on Blogspot. It had its first comic strip posted August 26, 2008. Updates are usually monthly. The art style looks like [I think] a mixture of abstract cubism and modernism done with traditional medium. The dialogue to the comics are about random fictitious moments or people in real life-like situations and how deeply affected they are by it.
