[DEEP BREATH OF SINCERELY HOPING THIS COUNTS AS A WEBCOMIC]

I say webcomic-type because webcomic is used for lack of a better term. But hey, if Wikipedia calls this type of site webcomics, then who am I to argue? The Family Circlejerk is a tribute/spiritual successor to Dysfunctional Family Circus, and works similarly- A Family Circus comic is posted sans caption, and viewers are invited to submit their own. It can be found at
https://familycirclejerk.wixsite.com/familycirclejerk (hey, I'm not made of money)

So, I guess check it out? I know this isn't the typical kind of webcomic you see on this site or any webcomic listing site, really, which is why I'm unsure if I'm pushing the limits a little. I dunno what else there is to say, so I guess I'll say no more.

It's a comic, it's on the web...it's a webcomic!

I mean I guess one could argue that it's a print comic that's been *pirated* to the web...but what am I, a lawyer? Hahaha! Oh dear me no. : o

a work created to imitate, make fun of, or comment on an original work—its subject, author, style, or some other target—by means of satiric or ironic imitation.

US Supreme Court wrote:
parody is the use of some elements of a prior author's composition to create a new one that, at least in part, comments on that author's works.

Although a parody can be considered a derivative work under United States Copyright Law, it can be protected from claims by the copyright owner of the original work under the fair use doctrine

Seems pretty airtight to me.
