This article had about a hundred sources when I found it, but every single one of them was the comic itself, or its related "DJ Rapekit". Oh, apart fomr one interview on Pigdog Journal (surely a reliable source for something, I just can't work out quite what). Guy (Help!) 22:17, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Speedy keep. This has been covered before, and nothing has changed. If anything the article is far better sourced now. What a typical waste of time.  Xihr  22:44, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
Speedy keep. Excising most of the article's content and putting it up for deletion while the page is still protected from editing feels like a very bad-faith move to me. Who's been whining behind the scenes in the elite wikipedia inner circle, I wonder? Stromcarlson (talk) 23:23, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
Comment Since you are attempting to implicate me and possibly Ruhrfisch without directly saying so, I'll state for the record that I've had no involvement or discussion about the article other than public remarks to and from the original administrator Ruhrfisch, as I noted to you on the article's talk page. A little less of a conspiracy-minded attitude can only help your case here. I do think this deletion request is poorly timed given the then-existing protection and ongoing talk page discussion. -- Michael Devore (talk) 00:51, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
Comment I have de-protected it for now (and was the original protecting admin). Will comment on notability later. Ruhrfisch ><>°° 23:29, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
Comment Restored the article. Let's debate the uncastrated version. Stromcarlson (talk) 23:35, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
Delete, good webcomic but there are no reliable third-party sources cited in the article, nor can I find any in my searches. Nothing in the article nor the above "speedy keep" comments adresses sourcing issues at all. I see no claims that this meets Wikipedia:Notability or Wikipedia:Speedy keep. Thanks, Starblueheather (talk) 04:15, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
Keep, the article's topic is definitely notable, and the article is a decent coverage of the topic. There is no reasonble cause to delete it just because someone's pedantic feathers got ruffled. If folks want to find additional sources, more power to them. JoshuaRodman (talk) 07:26, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Delete. Fails WP:SIGCOV. --TorriTorri(Talk to me!) 09:24, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Delete For me the relevant guideline here is Wikipedia:Notability (web). I fail to see where this has "been the subject of multiple non-trivial published works whose source is independent of the site itself." There is a brief mention in The Comics Journal but this is an interview with one of the comics' creators and in 7,219 words, only 66 words (6 sentences) are about Jerkcity. There is also an article in Salon.com but it has one sentence on Jerkcity and shows one of the characters (not labeled). So these are the two best mentions in reliable sources, and both seem fairly trivial to me. There is a nicely written article on Jerkcity at Rotten.com but I do not see that as a relaible source and the article does not give an author or date or source (if it is a reprint from a RS). There is a Jerkcity book, but it was apparently self-published and I cannot find any reviews of it. I asked on the article's talk page a few days ago for reliable sources and what I have mentioned here were the best provided - I've looked but cannot find better sources. I do not see how the article meets notability and so !vote for deletion. If better sources are out there, please provide them. Ruhrfisch ><>°° 14:09, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
