Let's create a community answer for this, even though I can only put a small amount into context: Riddick's Ulak knives from The Chronicles of Riddick Soul Edge from Soulcalibur Scissor Sword from Kill la Kill Ruby Rose's Crescent Rose Alternate version of Stormbringer. See #6 below Elric of Melnibone's sword Stormbringer. This is a close match of the ...

Could be Unsounded. The girl is indeed very annoying to her guide. It's been a while since I read it but I do seem to remember something about a tree elemental as well. Smugglers do appear as well though I'm not sure if it's in the second chapter already. The girl also has a tail. The guide is a zombie.

Sounds like Kill Six Billion Demons. Here's the first page that properly shows the setting: Later, the protagonist's guide describes the nature of their world:

That is Karen Star, also known as Power Girl. The reason you don't know her, especially if you are reading Grant Morrison's Justice League, is she is NOT a member of the JLA. She is a Kryptonian from a parallel universe (the Pre-Crisis Earth 2, to be precise) and she would be an analog of Supergirl from the mainstream DC Universe. She is gifted with all of ...

Thanks to @jwodder's comment, I found it. They were right - the one I meant was not from Order of the Stick but The Noob Comic #25:

In the absence of an annotated picture, I am going to proceed upwards, by rows, in a zig-zag fashion (for reasons that become obvious given the row #1 to row #2 transition) starting from the bottom-right-hand corner. And Hurt counts, damnit! ☺ I, Martha, added this annotated picture and tried to put in the correspondences (in parentheses). Row #0, ...

This could be Blindsprings: This is the main character, Tamaura Llyn (of course) Her friend, Street: Here are the spirits, whose motives are (as of Chapter 3), dubious: Here's her other friend, who is the one with the connection to the spirits. She is qualified to be a priestess to a bunch of snake spirits.

I think it's this one called "Coupling" Found using the Google search site:www.smbc-comics.com hormones.

Slightly Damned? The humanoid is named Rhea and she is assigned to the ring of the Slightly Damned by Death because she was a bit of an asshole. They eventually meet an angel that can transform into a rabbit.

Wayward Sons: Legends. I enjoyed reading that webcomic -- all of it that was online at the time -- several years ago. I just now checked, and confirmed that it's still on hiatus. Its most recent page (if you follow the link) says it will be returning "Late in 2015." Obviously, that hasn't happened. The basic premise is just as you recall. The good guys (...

The very short answer is that canon within the Matrix-'verse is pretty complicated and certainly we should start out by pointing out that no-one within the production team has ever clearly defined what represents the official canon status of the film's subsidiary properties. On top of that, there's the additional wrinkle that some of the webcomics are ...

This sounds a lot like the first Act of Homestuck. The 'random kid' would be the main character of Homestuck, John Egbert, and a lot of the first act does involve him doing random things before the main plot gets underway. John texting his friends (in the form of 'Pesterlogs', in Homestuck parlance) forms a crucial part of the story going forward: almost ...

Searching the artist I found it pretty easily : From Left to Right: Hero, from Modmad’s The Property of Hate, Luna, from Blue-Ten’s Everblue, Credenza, from H.L. DeVera’s Archipelago, Vattu, the titular character of Evan Dahm’s Vattu, Charlie, from Melanie Gillman’s As the Crow Flies, Zandra, from Joe England’s Zebra Girl, Sulla, from O Human Star, ...

Because Sister Claire is full of homages to other media. As a longtime fan, the artist, Yamino is constantly slipping in nods to her favourite media. Star Wars, Big O, Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra, Harry Potter, Rose of Versailles, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, Utena, the Bat-family (Batman, Batwoman, Batgirl, Robin etc.), Mario ...

Martians are from lots of different things. War of the Worlds is referenced in the question, but A Princess of Mars also springs to mind, among myriad of other examples. Which one the artist was referring to can only be learned from the author notes The Cylons are the principal antagonists of Battlestar Galactica "Draconians" could refer to one of two ...

Ah, I just had a brainwave and remembered the name. I was thinking of Ironborn, by Olle Lindestad (who it looks like is currently working on another webcomic, "Current Culture"). The blurb: Robots aren't supposed to be able to use magic. But Opal is, and she's as confused about it as anyone. As conflict looms between a city of magic and a city of robots, ...

Pretty sure what you're after is Dogma by Kemi, hosted on Lezhin. A world where machines yearn to understand and become humans and where one human seeks to become as strong and indestructible as these machines. A jam-packed action SF that will blow your mind away. I can only read the first chapter without an account, but the robot does find a kid inside ...

Tozo (I'm answering my own question -- in the end, I found it while browsing through a Google image search for resembles tintin sci-fi webcomic.) Its first part, "The Public Servant" ran for 263 pages; the second part, "Empire of the Spider, had 13 pages published. It was originally at tozocomic.com (Internet Archive link) The new address for it is https:/...

Most of the stories were published in two volumes (printed in 2003 and 2004 respectively) by the Wachowski Brothers' company Burlyman Entertainment, along with three never released online. The comics published by the creators are considered canon, and reference that they were indeed published by an official source are here and here.

You can, up to a point Early text-only updates were, as you say, to make up for lack of artists; they were used both to advance the story and to expand on Erfworld's setting with other Sides in distant lands and some characters' background. Later on there are quite a few updates which are not in comic form and are central to the story. You should be able ...

Edit: not the answer, unfortunately, but a solid webcomic for sure. Was it Rice Boy? Certainly has your anthropomorphic TV, an extremely naive adventurer, and a dreamlike world.

Sounds like "My Hero" by Matt Rhodes.

The Miskatonic, a Lovecraftian game on Steam. I was apparently insufficiently alert the first time I tried Google Image Search - there's a section at the bottom specifically labeled "Pages that include matching images", which I overlooked.

The webcomic is MAD About U. by Teague Tysseling. It takes place at a university for mad scientists. The main character, with the outfit you describe, is Galileo Von Frankenstien. Krog introduces his square wheel in a history lesson from Professor Wells.

Sounds like On the Edge - features Alice Little working in law enforcement, and her demon roommate Mr Negative (Negs). On The Edge is many things; An Alice in Wonderland inspired tale where Alice has grown up in a Wonderland populated by Cats, Demons, and Elves, among other strange creatures. And it is also about our inner Demons, personified through Mr. ...

The Property of Hate? Description from TVTropes: The Property of Hate is a webcomic by Sarah Jolley (aka Modmad aka Fred aka Albionhands) that began publication in early 2012 and usually updates on Sundays. A young girl is suddenly awoken by a strange man who refers to himself simply as RGB. He is formal in speech and odd in the head, or in the television ...

This was covered on the official Erfworld website. In short, the author feels that the text updates are supplementary, rather than essential. But a lot of readers actually said they would miss the density of information and richness of story that came with the texts. And I realized that I would, too. The comic medium is great for many things, but it ...

The "Gardener" refers to the fact that it works by "neural pruning", i.e. eliminating useless thought pathways. The "in the Dark" may (canonically, anyway) be a reference to the Blind Watchmaker, but in practice it's also an ominous reference to the program's disastrously indiscriminate nature. Imagine an actual gardener in the dark, pruning away randomly at ...

I'm pretty sure this is Widdershins. From the About page: Widdershins is a series of Victorian-era adventure stories, set in the fictional town of Widdershins, West Yorkshire- England’s magical epicentre, home to bounty hunters, failed wizards, stage magicians, and more, besides. The stage magician with the round nose is Sidney Malik, and the smoking ...

The webcomic is, appropriately enough, The Monster Under the Bed, and started in 2014. I'll use the summary from TV Tropes. Tim is a perfectly ordinary 18-year-old boy, who has nothing special going for him. At least, that's what you would think if you didn't know about his nightly visits from his girlfriend, who happens to be a dark-skinned demon from ...
