Kiwis by Beat!

Kiwis by Beat!

A reimagining of the Kiwis by Beat! web site by Ryan Armand.

Thanks to the hard work of essdee, there's a Discord server for fans of Ryan's work. Whether you're actively looking for Ryan or just appreciative of his work & would like to chat, join us using the link below! (It should be an open invite but reach out if not.)



This site was lovingly pieced together by Michael V. Colianna. In most cases, I have tried to keep the names of parts intact per appearance on the original site, whether those were errors by Ryan or otherwise. In some cases I had to guess, though. Feel free to send me a message on GitHub/Twitter/Facebook if you have any of the missing images, or if you have better names for some of the series/parts.

Since the original domain expired, this is a fan archive of the content from, based off the hard work of Toggle. You can view a mirror of the original site here. It also includes some content from another mirror by KiwiEnquirer.

If nothing else, please read minus! and/or The Mildly Inconvenient Journey of Pelen Purul. All of Ryan’s comics are great but those two are truly phenomenal.

This page has direct links to the comics, featuring some cards I put together for them, and there is a menu to access them from anywhere, too. Each comic has a button to begin reading. If it's a series, then there are multiple buttons with the names of each portion. When you're going through the pages, the previous & next buttons are at the bottom, along with a full list of all the pages.

A huge goal for this site to make the comics more accessible. A scant few have descriptions right now. It's a long process to add image captions, but worthwhile so everyone can enjoy Ryan's comics. If you're able to contribute some, please reach out! Any help is appreciated!


  • 2022 Nov 12: We have a Discord server now, thanks to essdee (of the Ribald Youth videos update). Added the note about that to the top of the page.
  • 2022 Nov 1: I created Facebook & Twitter profiles! Links are in the footer. I also added captions to the short comics in Verse & Stuff.
  • 2022 Oct 27: As a (late) birthday present to myself, I redid the site! I moved away from a PHP-based system. I'm now using Gatsby to statically generate the site. It was a much longer labor of love than I thought it would be but I'm happy with the results.
  • 2021 Nov 23: Added a "Ribald Youth Videos" page to the "Other Comics" section. Many thanks to essdee for those, which were on an "extra stuff" page from the original Ribald Youth site.
  • 2020 Apr 21: Added an image to Socks that was sent to me by bluffy!
  • 2020 Jan 28: Fixed some missing images in part 10 of "Great!" (They somehow didn't make it into the HTML even though they were physically present.) Thanks to the heads-up from dijtro-echo!
  • 2019 Aug 26: Added a few extra images to Socks that were sent to me. Pulled a couple of other images in from Toggle's repository.
  • 2019 Apr 13: Added a section for some incomplete/hidden comics that were sent to me.
  • 2019 Mar 11: I've gotten some submissions that fill in a couple of small blanks. However, someone anonymously sent me what looks like the complete "Regarding the acquisition of hats!" children's book that Ryan made! I'll get that and the other small updates in as soon as possible!
  • 2019 Mar 4: The primary goal of this site is to have a reliable hub for the various comics Ryan made until such time as he (hopefully) reappears.
