What are the most UNIQUE comics and cartoons in existence?
I don't mean "weird" or "artistic", though they can be those it really doesn't matter. I just mean the comics and cartoons that there's really nothing else like. Whether in terms of theme, content, format, structure, concept, or some other element, just as long as they're one-of-a-kind.
Comics / webcomics off the top of my head
Orc Stain, bizzarre world where everything's alive
Decrypting Rita, weird format & art style
MSPAis unique in its own way
Bottom of the Ninth, animated comic for tablets with audio snippets & videos
Also, bottom of the ninth is about baseball. That's not very common.
I guess the Sandman comics are unique
The Intrepid Girlbot is a (mostly) silent webcomic by Diana Nock
Many classic Euro comics like Corto Maltese have their own unique feel
The Hertzfeldt cartoons are bizzarre
Fantastic Planet is bizzarre
Chris Ware's comics
Empowered is pretty unique. It's a superhero soap opera dramady that evolved out of fetish art, drawn by one of the most egregiously manga-influenced artists working in Ameirca. Also it it is in pencil, which is also pretty rare.
Like imagine Ally McBeal with superheroes only if it started out as porn. That's pretty unique.
Then again, there's another comic done by an autist that looks like something between male, female and swamp monster. It's called Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. Sonichu has better art, though.
There's a difference between fanservice and fetish fuel
Like, feet weirdos might like Quentin Tarantino's movies, but not as much as they'd like a weird foot fetish video on youtube, and Empowered started out like the latter
I'm trying to remember a comic that was basically a collection of different stories from different writers and artists published by DC that was really unique cause it had basically nothing to do with the DC universe.
It had a really fluid and non-conventional art style to all of it.
What a Cartoon had a lot of unique shorts. Though most can be considered weird as fuck.
Tales of worm paranoia
And then... there's this...
I wonder sometimes if /co/ has ever even HEARD of Basil Wolverton.
>Empowered started out like the latter
Are you still selling that "Warren just salvaged an unpaid commission" story?
I think he's selling the "Warren is writing his bondage/exhibition/humiliation fetish and passing it off as superheroics" story instead.
You know, the one that is blatantly and undeniably true.
Well the official line is that it started as a parody of all the bondage commissions he was getting.
I could easily believe he's a foot guy though.
John K wishes he could come up with shit like this.
Soft city by psuhwagner.
It's written by a former hobo who got discovered by chance and is now a bigshot in the norwegian art scene.
I don't think I habe ever seen his stuff mentioned on /co/ and I've been here for a while.

These are probably the most unique things in the thread.
I'd also throw Ultra Comics on there for being a unique take on the relationship between the reader and the material being read.
I'd say Torpedo is pretty unique. I haven't run across any other short-form gag comics with the same kind of fatalist black humor. Or any gag comics that manage to balance the humor and story so well, let alone with such good art.
Also anything by Miller and Darrow together. Or even Darrow by himself. Shaolin Cowboy is on a whole different plane of existence.
I've been awake for 20 minutes today. I turned off my alarm, took the dog out, and hopped on this thread, and my day has already been made.
That was easily the funniest thing I've seen in a good few days.

Also, Tails gets Trolled gets my vote.
