The Meek is a fantasy webcomic written and drawn by Der-Shing Helmer. The Meek takes place in a fantasy universe and focuses on the protagonist Angora, a young girl with a magical ability to control plants who is trying to reach a place she calls "the center". However, The Meek follows multiple narratives with several different characters from across the world. Each chapter exclusively follows one of these separate narratives. The plot concerns a war that is brewing between several of the world's ethnic clans, notably the Carissi and the Pasori people.
The Meek used to update once or twice a week. The last update was on November 14, 2012, and the comic has since gone on a hiatus. It is also translated into Russian, French, and Slovene.
Der-Shing Helmer is a high-school biology teacher, and writes The Meek in her spare time. Helmer says she draws inspiration from biology when designing the world of The Meek.
