Whats your favourite Non-Mainstream Comic?

My favourites are ones that my girlfriend has gotten me into. She mainly reads indy stuff, and there's some excellent stuff there.

Gloomcookie - surreal, and well written.

Courtney Crumrin - funny little series.

Blue Monday - funniest comic I've read in years.

What's your favourite undiscovered gem?

Homepage for 8-Bit Theatre

It's a twice-a-week Internet comic strip and it uses characters from Final Fantasy's early days. Except here, they are all either insanely stupid, extremely sarcastic, psychotic, or a combination of all three. Truly hilarious. Anyone who has ever played a Final Fantasy game needs to read these.

Bear from Slave Labour Graphics. Absolutely hilarious comic in a bizarre sort of way.

Is that Hero Bear and Kid, or a different book?

Different book entirely. Go here to learn more. (I like Herobear & the kid though. It's the Disney movie of comics that Disney tie-ins fail to be)

On the SLG front, they've had a couple of good new series out that aren't the A typical goth teenager crowd type of stuff they usually publish. Street Angel just came out, about a young girl who defends the streets of her town against ninjas, quite funny and well done, and Tupelo, about a punk band member who turns into a type of superhero who can only access his power by shooting drugs. Again, funny, and well drawn.

Not sure if it counts, but Metabarons from Humanoids Publishing. Alexandro Jodorowsky writes the tragic history of the Metabarons, a line of super mercenaries from humble beginnings. It's set in the same continuity as Incal, somewhere in a dark and distant future. Think Dune, except a lot more space opera.
