So one of my favorite webcomics has ended. We the Robots hasn’t been updating at all lately, so it’s not really a surprise, but it’s still depressing. That makes two of my favorite comics that have ended this year (the other being Ugly Hill). I’m pretty impressed and happy with the way both have ended, though I’d much rather them keep going.
Ending a serialized story in a way that is satisfying to the die-hard fans is a pretty tricky thing. I remember a lot of people hating the way Seinfeld ended, but I thought it was brilliant – how else could you end a show like that but with something completely unexpected and pointless.
All that being said, I know exactly how As the Grass Grows will end when the time comes. Don’t get me wrong, I’m hoping that day doesn’t come for a long time, but the idea of how to end it came to me before I even committed to doing a regular strip. It’s one of those things that just makes sense (no I’m not telling… you’ll just have to stick around to the end).
So anyway, if anyone has any suggestions for good webcomics that will get me out of my current depression let me know.
