Cartoon #5 - North & South  
OK, I'm very, very, very, very sorry that I have not updated since forever, but look here! A new comic! And it's got that ol' hunk'o'spunk Thornton (newly designed - didn't like the old one).

I am so sad that there are hardly any active cartoon communities anymore. Pray tell me if there are!

Read from left to right, top to bottom. ;D

NB: Watching Little Britain Abroad on telly the other day got me all nostalgic for "Margaret! Margaret!"

Also, FYI, the portrait featured is of Ford Maddox Brown, one of my favourite English painters at the time of the Industrial Revolution.

Oh, I was going through old entries at foolish_passion and reacquainted myself with your excellent cartoons! :-D

As far as cartoon communities go, I think it's mainly individual cartoonists posting on their own journals. One of my favs is Kate Beaton...her lj is beatonna and she's got a website @ katebeaton.com She also has some links to other cartoonists buried in her journal.

Some of my favorite cartoons of hers:

Most of her comics are history-related, but she has a few of Jane Austen and possibly a few other authors, IIRC.

Her community, history_time started out as an avenue for her fans to do comics, but it's devolved into just history entries as of late. (Wait until I unleash my lame Booker T. Washington "comic" on everyone! Bwaahahaha! I cannot draw...so it should be *excellent*. ::snort::)

Here's one of the best comics from there:
