Reading through this thread, it's a pity that a lot of the comics mentioned are gone. Some die off early like Geist Panik after its first arc, while others suddenly vanish after years of plotlines, like Blip.

Ah, well.
I like that one.

A comic I've been following with a remarkably straightforward name: How to Be a Werewolf.

The protagonist's a woman in her twenties, Malaya, who got bit by a strange wolf as a small child. Ever since, her family has helped her hide her periodic Lon Cheney episodes, but Malaya grew up afraid to do much more than go to work and come home each day. Then, another werewolf finds her and offers to teach her all the things she doesn't know about her situation...and warn her about something very wrong in her town.

The art's good, and it's what caught my eye. The writing's thoughtful and very character-driven, with characters dealing as best they can with unnatural situations. It's also rather fresh in avoiding a lot of well-worn ground in horror and "urban" fantasy. A lot of cliched beats get skipped to go more interesting places, which I always enjoy. It has dark and even eerie moments, but it's also the most charming possible comic I can imagine about someone deeply afraid she'll lose control and hurt the people she loves.

Images are linked, in case they get cut off:

(Really, this sequence might be the best "two guys held captive in a basement" scene I've ever seen in any medium...)

Well, at least the archive on that one wasn't too deep. :)

Just in case you hadn't come across it, Calvin & Muad'Dib. Calvin and Hobbes installments with Dune quotes. It really should not work so well.
