On the Web Comic

Given my love both for graphic novels (and memoirs and journalism and histories and essays) and for the serial form in all media, you would think I would be better versed in web comics than I actually am.  In fact, there has never been a web comic that I followed with any consistency.  I didn't even really know where to start.

But now I think I may have found the first: a Persian-Arab serial comic by the pseudonymous Amil and Khalil that clearly builds on the mainstream print success of Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis to talk about contemporary (current, even) events in Iran.  It is called Zahra's Paradise, and you can read it from the first episode here.

So here is the question that I put to you, o ye who are more knowledgeable in the ways of web comics than I: what else in this genre should I be reading?
