Altermeta is a slice-of-life webcomic with fantasy overtones, made evident by the fact that all the characters are dragons. Started in November, 2001 Altermeta seemed to have disappeared into the bowels of Abandoned Webcomic Hell, until it was revived a short while ago, first as a full-fantasy reboot of the original comic, then rebooting again as a direct continuation.

This webcomic includes examples of:

  • Anachronism Stew: As Cavris is an alternate world, it does not mesh nicely with any given time period. 64-bit graphics are new and their neighbors recently invented the Internet, placing it roughly into the equivalent of the late 1980s or so, but then Josephine gets a fifth-generation Ford Mustang.
  • Archive Trawl: You will not understand what's going on without reading the original comics.
    • A few recap strips have helped this along.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking

 Josephine: No, um, you don't understand. He's come to devour little kids too! And... and... birds, and the number 4, and to scare the elderly, and make fun of weak ankled people, and become a Republican, and make everyone just really really sad!

 Ruth: And I shall call you... Abigail...

 Rutherford: Don't you walk away while I'm talking! I've not even begun to make you feel bad, you tubby bitch!

 City Guard: We are the law in this city.
