Defunct Strips

These are strips and toons that seem to have completely disappeared off of the Web. In some cases, the server, or even the entire domain, can no longer be located. If you know of a current site for any of these, please send me email at the address below.

Abductee

Main page was at: http://www.abductee.com/

This is now an alias for Laugh Seeds




All is Well

Page: http://ccwf.cc.utexas.edu/~weldon/new/cartoon.html

A small collection of cartoons that have run in the University of Texas' daily paper the Daily Texan.

There is no longer a ~weldon subtree on that server. Perhaps he graduated and didn't leave a forwarding URL.



Anarchy Rules by Min Lieu

Main page was at: http://server.berkeley.edu/anarchy/,

Was updated Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I can no longer get a DNS resolution for host server.berkeley.edu.



Cartoons by Lok

Main page was at: http://www.geocities.com/TheTropics/3747/page2.html

I suspect it may have just moved without leaving a forwarding address...



Cyber Chicken

Main page was at: http://www.whoa.ca/strip.html

I suspect it may have just moved without leaving a forwarding address...



Cyberzine: WebComics !

This was several frequently updated comics, with options for delivery via PointCast or Netscape Netcaster (in addition to the on-demand Web pages.) But it looks like the Cyberzine domain has been taken over by a porn site.

Dimension X Cartoons

Main page was at: http://www.uq.edu.au/~cmgzubic/dimex.html
It was stagnant for about a year before the page disappeared completely.

Dithered Twits by Stan Waling

Main page was at: http://members.iquest.net/~waling/twits.html



Duffy

A long-running print strip about an office worker, syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate. It apparently ceased publication with the 19 April, 1997 strip. There is an archive.



Eb on the Web

Main page was at: http://www.ccn.cs.dal.ca/~ae645/toon.html

I suspect it may have just moved without leaving a forwarding address...



Hometown Heroids by Joe Gunsten

Main Page was http://www.incwell.com/Heroids/Heroids.html. It may have just moved with no forwarding address.



Illustrations by Bill Proctor

Main page was at: http://www.silicom.com/~proctor/index.html

Includes the Object Lessons series. No indication of update frequency.

Page is no longer available; and no indication of a new location.



Legal Insanity

Main page was at: http://www.review.net/insanity

Page is no longer available; and no indication of a new location.



Life Take 1

Main page was at: http://www.wisepub.com/take1.htm

Page is no longer available; and no indication of a new location.



Malice in Wonderland

Page: http://www.spacedog.org/Malice/index.html


Netoons Comic

Page: http://www.accessus.net/~kyle/THISWEEK.HTM
It was updating weekly for a while. Then it went stagnant; and now we are getting 'document not found' from the server.

The Nth Dimension

Page: http://www.nashville.com/~Prof.Vinnie/

Now returns 'Document not found'. It may have just moved to a new ISP without leaving a forwarding address.



Open Prarie Syndicate This is/was a showcase for various comic artists who are 'out of the mainstreem'. The main page was at: http://www.visi.com/~oprarie/

Now returns 'No such user' page.



Otto Gruff

These were below the Over the Edge strips at http://www.dreamscape.com/ovrdedge/. But the Over the Edge page has moved and re-formatted. It no longer mentions Otto Gruff at all.



Perky & Bruce

Main page was at: http://www.xs4all.nl/~parkview/P&B.HTML

A few weekly updates followed by a long stagnant period, and now the whole URL is not found, and when truncated to .../~parkview/ it returns a page about the 7 Tafels restaurant in Groningen, The Netherlands.



Radio Kazoo

Main page was at: http://www.xs4all.nl/~parkview/kazoo.html

A few weekly updates followed by a long stagnant period, and now the whole URL is not found, and when truncated to .../~parkview/ it returns a page about the 7 Tafels restaurant in Groningen, The Netherlands.



Rubes

This strip appeared on the Sega comics pages (http://www.sega.com/buz/comics/) Now gone without a trace.

Pluggers

Pluggers was hosted under the Jeff MacNelly home page. But he has passed the job of creating pluggers to Gary Brookins, editorial cartoonist for the Richmond Times Dispatch. There was no mention of a new URL.



Stan Waling

The page was at: http://www.iquest.net/~waling/cartoons home page

Now returns 'Document not found', and reducing it to .../~waling/ gets a 'Forbidden' error. He may have just moved to a new ISP without leaving a forwarding address.



Today's Gagline

The page was at: href="http://www.ecampus.com/enter/humor/cartoon/gl.cgi"
Now 'ecampus.com' is returning a non-existant domain error.

GameZero: Weekly Comics

Page: http://www.gamezero.com/team-0/comics/

The DNS entry still exists, but I haven't been able to contact the Web server or complete a traceroute since October, 1996. The IP address is assigned to UUnet, and the last host to respond to the traceroute is in the same class C subnet (but does not have a name registered with their DNS servers.)



Welfare State by Hal Stoner

The page was at http://www.welfarestate.com/

I can no longer get a DNS or whois resolution for domain welfarestate.com.



A Whole Other Country>

Page: http://www.goodbuys.com/awoc.htm
No longer on that site. No indication of a new address.

Zany Zoo

Page: http://zeb.nysaes.cornell.edu/z/zz/
Strip: http://zeb.nysaes.cornell.edu/z/zz/zz.GIF

This strip featured the exploits of the people and animals who work at City Zoo. Nominated for best strip on the Web in 1995.

There is no longer a DNS entry for server zeb.nysaes.cornell.edu. I could not find the strip on www.nysaes.cornell.edu.



Zoonmoon Cartoons

The page was at: http://www.swiftsite.com/zoonmoon/



Zstuff Cartoons

The page was at: http://www.psnw.com/~jmz5/cc/

It now returns a 'Document not found' error for any document under ~jmz5. I suspect that the artist moved to a new ISP without leaving a forwarding address.
