The Sphynx & viruscomix

I recently followed a link to viruscomix in a post here @LQ, there I discovered a set of (then) 10, now 17 so far, strips featuring "The Sphynx". The premise being how would the Sphinx of the OEdipus legend function in modern society. I wanted to keep a list of them:
  1. OEdipus Redux (oedipus redux) == (4: Oedipus Redux) [Sphynx I]
  2. The Further Adventures of The Sphynx (not really) == (23: Sphynx II)
  3. Friday Evening with The Sphynx (monsters playing poker) == (42: Sphynx III)
  4. The Ongoing Continuing Further Adventures of The Sphynx (Sphynx IV) == (59: Sphynx IV)
  5. Video Store Sphynx (Sphynx V) == (65: Sphynx V)
  6. Pizza Hut Sphynx (Sphynx the Sixth) == (78: Sphynx VI)
  7. The Further Additional Adventures of The Sphynx (Macerator) == (85: Sphynx VII)
  8. There's no good acting, there's only good casting. (Sphynx VIII) == (92: Sphynx VIII)
  9. The Further Adventures of The Sphynx (Sphynx IX) == (97: Sphynx IX)
  10. The Yet More Adventures of The Sphynx (Sphynx X) == (111: Sphynx X)
  11. Bored All Day (Thus misspoke Zarathustra) == (123: Sphynx XI)
  12. Oh the search for solace (Oh The Search For Solace) == (130: Sphynx XII)
    img title="the "Implausible Premise" franchise is dying for a reboot"
  13. Wandering The Earth in a Rage (Thus marks three years of my overbearing cynicism!) == (145: Sphynx XIII)
    img title="Thrill of the kill/ I know you will/ Feed the monster and the lady"
  14. "Down on 16th Street" (related) (Subnormality #150)
    img title="now you know where Carl Sagan got the idea from"
  15. "Monsters Playing Poker" == 154: Monsters Playing Poker
    img title="the minotaur had nothing interesting to say"
  16. Later With The Sphinx
    img title="to be continued"
  17. Sphynx XIV
