With the success of the Starfighter: Eclipse Kickstarter and the previous success of MegaTokyo, it is clear that webcomics have potential to be major EVN titles. I can say, without patting myself on the back, that this is something that has been on the horizon for years now. As I have said on the podcast, between the webcomics and Telltale Games, it is only a matter of time before more developers start looking at this medium as a profitable way to expand their audience and the life of their work. But I have spoken at length on that, so I won't bore you again. After all, if we're going to see more webcomic creators make the jump from comics to gaming, then it's about time some raging Internet asshat begins speculating on when we're going to see the GOOD ones make that leap.
Ah yes fans of MegaTokyo and Starfighter: I went there. That isn't to say both are bad per se, however the creme has yet to rise to the top here. There are fantastic titles out there that could easily make the leap: some still active, others on hiatus and still some finished entirely. Regardless, as a fan of both mediums, I figured that now would be the proper time to shine a spotlight on some of my personal favorite webcomics that could also be visual novels. Oh and, to be clear, this is all my opinion and I haven't read every single webcomic in existence. So, if you don't see what you like on the list, that sounds like a problem outside of my department!
With all of that said, let's take a look at the Top 5 Webcomics That Should Have A Visual Novel!
