KNIFEBEETLE is a curated webring for longform, narrative-driven webcomics. "Curated" means members must apply or be invited, "longform" means the comics are eked out over months if not years, "narrative-driven" means the stories have a focus on being stories, and "webring" means we list webcomics for you to find, read, and hopefully fall in love with. By joining KNIFEBEETLE, our creators can promote each other and find new readers just by linking back to this hub site.


We don't advertise, publish, or pay anyone to make comics. We are also not a collective, meaning creators aren't expected to collaborate or check in every few months. This is just a curated listing.
