I don't rate every comic five stars. It's just that I only comment on those that totally blow me away. ;-)

Below is a list of comments made by Hmpf, in date order (newest at the top).

Comic: It's Walky 5/5
IW! is fun because somehow it manages to go completely over the top in several mutually exclusive (or so one should think) directions at once, and as if *that* weren't enough of a feat it somehow manages to be genuinely funny, exciting and touching while doing so. Elements like toilet humor and theological discussions, apocalyptic action and romance don't impede but rather heighten each other here. It's a strange mix, but it works.
Comic: Zebra Girl 5/5
Zebra Girl has some of the best black-and-white artwork around. Also, it has extremely engaging characters and exciting storylines connected by the underlying (or overarcing? hmm.) theme of the characters's personal journeys.
Comic: Gunnerkrigg Court 5/5
Gunnerkrigg Court - the place - is kind of what you'd get if you crossed Hogwarts with the endless abandoned industrial structures of BLAME. Annie is a great protagonist, the secondary characters are interesting, the plots are fun, and you get the feeling that there is deeper, darker stuff going on 'behind the scenes' that is going to be revealed little by little. The artwork is beautifully stylised and rather professional.
Comic: Templar Arizona 5/5
Templar Arizona: dust storms. Clay bars. Fried cavy to go.

It's hard to say what's more fascinating in this comic, the characters who seem so alive you expect them to jump out of the computer screen, and who are all deeply weird, or the city they live in (which is also deeply weird). Templar is a comic in which, most of the time, not a lot is happening - you're just watching the everyday life of a bunch of strange people in a strange place. But that's enough, really, because both the people and the place are so intriguing.

Plus, Spike's extremely expressive artwork is great to look at.
Comic: Otter Soldiers 5/5
Otter Soldiers is Scandinavian dark fantasy with an ironic twist. It manages to turn things as unlikely as raisins and Santa's elves into something sinister; it has unique characters like Tassukorva, a naked, invisible-to-most woman with a face veiled by long hair and a smiley-face that appears on the back of her head when needed; it has an epic battle waged not exactly between Good and Evil but between forces mostly outside the human realm of moral judgment. It is, in short, deeply original, captivating, and genuinely edgey. Also, it has gorgeous, very unusual art that complements the story perfectly.
Comic: HERO 5/5
Combines a sense of restrained lyricism with occasional, surprising touches of dry humor. Beautiful, minimalist Japanese watercolor-like artwork underlines the dreamlike, surreal feel.
Comic: rice boy 5/5
An acid trip with plot. Enchanting, mind-boggling, exciting and oddly touching, like a cross between Yellow Submarine, Donjon, Lord of the Rings and The Little Prince. Or something.
Comic: Dicebox 5/5
Brilliant art, great writing, characters that feel utterly real, and a thoroughly intriguing universe - truly one of the best sf comics out there.
