I finally read KSBD. It's super good. The plot reminds me a lot of The Property of Hate (which I mentioned above), and the religion reminds me of Bokononism from Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle. There's a lot of symbolism and background lore, so I wish I had started reading it back on the MSPA forums in 2014 so I could discuss it with people.

Unfortunately though, I've read through three years of work, and I can't recall if Allison has managed to kill one demon, let alone six billion.

the tree husband got killed

the religion draws heavily from dharmic (hindu, buddhist) mysticism and from death metal

"demon" is used as "bad person." operant said that they might have called it "kill seven black emperors" but that isn't as catchy.

plus the alt text for that page is "demons killed: 1"

O Human Star - I read it, it's good, and you should too

It's occasionally NSFW and will be back from end-of-chapter hiatus in three days

O Human Star is one of my faves. Its really, really worth the read

Actually while i'm in here i'm going to recc On A Sunbeam which updates a chapter a week(!), is absolutely gorgeous and has super well written characters! Its a sort of scifi futuristic type thing where there are a bunch of space ships shaped like koi and the main character seems... Kind of adrift, in life. It switches back and forth between her time in a boarding school and the present day, where shes part of some sort of... Archaeology? Building? type restoration group that repairs old temples and things out in space.

I've actually read Oh Man Star, but forgot all about it. I really should pick that up again (Al's mysterious tragedy is calling out to me). I've found out about the comic from Bicycle Boy's link page.

SPEAKING of Bicycle Boy (That was a terrible transition), Bicycle Boy is also a pretty good comic. It's about this cyborg amnesiac that is basically a sheltered nugget despite being stranded in a deserted apocalypse where a lot of murder happens. He has a bicycle and can miraculously ride it across sand dunes. Also bandits. Lots of bandits with a ridiculous amount of bandannas and belts. It's a good one if you like Borderlands and color-coded scenery.

On A Sunbeam seems pretty darn interesting. I'm checking it out right now and I really like the spaceship designs. Just imagine how those ships can move if they were animated!

My friend JR/TheCeoofDeath just recently completed the first book of his webcomic Demon Kings and brought it out of a two year hiatus. I finished reading chapter 6 which is the last chapter. I highly recommend you read it.
Here is some cover art for book 1, as incentive (too big, hidden under spoiler):
