2019 Big Webcomics Catch-Up: Tapas, Part #1

Previous post: Introduction – Next post: Tapas, Part #2

Tapas (formerly Tapastic) is one of my favourite platforms for webcomics. Before I finally set up an RSS feed and stopped relying on bookmarks last year, I had two big problems: discovering new comics to read and keeping track of which comic updates when, which are active, and so on.

I never had enough. It was quite hard to find new things to read, lots of sorting through crap, lots of artists who went on a perpetual hiatus and comics I lost my patience with for other reasons, but eventually, I accumulated about 80 that I followed. Not all of them were favourites, not all of them necessarily the best, a few will likely be DNF’d in the next few weeks or months or years, but it’s the current state of my list.
