Posted: Wed Dec 14, 2005 4:25 pm Post subject: Suggest a Story to be Indexed
READ THIS FIRST
This thread is for suggesting stories to be included in the Full Story index of completed webcomics. However, NOT ALL STORIES WILL BE INDEXED. This project has a specific scope, and no comic falling outside that scope will be included. Please consider whether the story you want to suggest falls within this scope before posting.
That said, even if your story does fall within the scope, I make no promise that it will be indexed in a timely manner or indexed at all. I read every single story before adding it to the index. This means that the process can be very slow, especially for longer stories. It could be a few days or a few months before your story is added. I do not send notifications--if you want to know if your story has been indexed, please check the index itself.
The criteria for inclusion are as follows:
It has to be complete.
Nothing currently being serialized. Nothing that was started, then abandoned unfinished.
It has to be available, in its entirety, online.
I don’t index previews of print works, unless the preview itself is a complete story. (Usually as a preview for an anthology of some sort.)
With former serialized works, there has to be an overarching narrative.
Strips that read as a collection of gags won’t be indexed. Strips that create a larger narrative using the daily format will be. Thus, Narbonic will be indexed once it’s finished. Dinosaur Comics won’t be. This is not an aspersion on Dinosaur Comics—it’s one of my favorite comics. It just falls outside the scope of this project.
I have to like it.
Yes, there’s a subjective element to this. There are too many comics out there for me to spend my time promoting comics I hate. That said, I have uncommonly diverse tastes, so “comics I hate” doesn’t really rule out any particular genre. But I do expect reasonably intelligent writing and reasonably proficient art. No incoherent napkin scribble comics. But again, I make no promise that I will like your work--please understand that there is always a chance that I will decide not to include the story you suggest.
All that said, your suggestions are welcome! Please include title, author, and URL when suggesting a story.

I don't know if you've ever seen "Slices" written by Andrew Dabb and drawn by a ton of artists.
The premise was one 3 pager a week for a year, and includes some pretty nice comics, I think...
It's definently a finished series, being completed a few years ago. A lot of the artists have gone on to do some print comics work and even Dabb himself used the series to broker some print work for himself.
Kid Radd by Dan Miller. The front page doesn't advertise it very well, but this is a pretty imaginitive and very funny piece of science-fiction with a well-made plot and some serious themes.
Fans by T Campbell (The currently running comic on the site is a sequel to the main story, which is complete.)
Nightmare World A collection of completed online "horror comics" with some sharp and funny tales.
Unicorn Jelly by Jennifer Diane Reitz. Another good science-fiction story. Also has two currently-running sequels at http://www.pasteldefender.com/ which are shaping up into great stories. _________________ I am large, I contain chocolate.
Dylan Meconis has a one-pager that's pretty. (EDIT: the page got moved in Dylan's recent redesign. I've updated the link.)
Diana Sasse's Saturnalia is a lot of fun. Weird as all Hell, but that's the joy of it. It's book one of her Kennedy Tales series, book two of which is currently running on Graphic Smash, but it reads fine on its own.
I second Unicorn Jelly, Irrational Fears, Little Creature, Kid Radd, and Demonology 101 (which incidentally has a completed spinoff story associated with it), and Queen of Wands (forgot that one!) My own recs:
The Boy Shop Pets: Three of Thomas Dye's early pre-Newshounds comics, rough compared to the modern strip but still worth a look. (The current spinoff Manifestations will be a standalone story when it's finished.)
Flick: A great series of separate science-fiction stories, now being run for free at Mikael Oskarsson's new site. _________________ I am large, I contain chocolate.

Hi, I do Stripped Books, which is an irregularly updated series of non-fiction strips adapting a book- or comics-related event into comics form. There are seven stories to date, all of them completed. (Stripped Books is on a bit of a hiatus, as of May, 2006.)
