A sprite comic is a type of webcomic that is constructed using video game sprites. Mega Man, Mega Man X and Final Fantasy sprites are especially popular in the sprite comic world. Since sprite comic artists spend less time on art than hand-drawn webcomic artists, you'd think that means they have more time to concentrate on writing, right? Right?
Wrong, for the most part. Sprite comics are a dime-a-dozen and usually not funny. There are few rare exceptions such as 8-Bit Theatre.
Some sprite-comic artists spend a fair amount of time modifying the sprites they use, either to show poses not found in the game, or to create visibly different characters. These are, usually, also the ones who put more effort into their writing.
