Here is the thread for WebComics and talking about Webcomics. Because let's face it, webcomics are so cheap they're free, and you can read them at work.
Here's a listing of webcomics to get folks started. Submit the link to the official webcomic series and I'll include it here:
- Order of the Stick
- Looking for Group
- Least I could Do
- Schlock Mercenary
- A girl with an explosive blood curse goes on a journey. It's Disney-esque content, cute animal companions, talking animals, and really good art. Updates Mondays.
- The Abominable Charles Christopher
By Karl Kerschl, a professional comic book artist (Teen Titans Year One, Wednesday Comics: Flash) A dimwitted Yeti stumbles through a forest with hilarious results. There's a subtle ongoing plot with some intense drama at times. Updates Wednesdays.
- The Meek
Mild nudity and violence, the actual story is far less dark then the plot would seem. Has a plant girl put on a quest by her gargantuan salamander grandfather to go to a capital city. The land is recently recovering from a vicious war. But there's also a lot of humor even though the plot is dark. Tu/Th updates.
- Border Crossings
Another relatively new webcomic, a surfer girl gets sucked into a parallel reality full of horrible monsters. It takes a lot of inspiration from China Meiville's Bas-Lag fantasy books. Don't expect any elves or dwarves. You get horned otter men and hideous aquatic caterpillars that steal the personalities of creatures they eat. Updates Fridays.
- Evil Diva
Another Disney-esque story, this takes place in a modern world where the children of angels and devils have to go to a highschool like everyone else. Poor Diva is a devil but she just wants to be cute and nice. And Mr. Virgil seems like such a nice principal. But wait, he doesn't have a halo or horns, he couldn't be that Virgil could he?
- Guilded Age
Fantasy RPG comedy. Good art, excellent world design. Significantly better than Looking For Group. MWF.
- Gunnerkrigg Court
Seriously, if you don't know about this already go read it. Neil Gaiman's recommendation is printed on the back of the published volumes. The early art is really rough but it improved drastically. A young girl in a boarding school full of science and magic has adventures. MWF.
- Yon Kuma
BEAR WRESTLING. A poor boy gets his parents eaten by a bear so he has no choice but to become a world class bear wrestler to defeat the evil bear that ate his parents.
Written by modern comic personality Warren Bloody Ellis. Updates with five full color pages every Friday. Psychic children in a flooded postapocalyptic London. Violence and psychic shenanigans occur.
- Johnny Wander
Part journal comic, part short stories. You'd never imagine that a twenty something indian guy and his halfasian girlfriend could be so endearingly cute. Probably the best new webcomic of the year.
- The Zombie Hunters
A black comedy about young salvagers in a zombie ruled world. Uses Romero zombies with elite zombies like L4D. Strong gore and an eclectic cast make it unique. Updates Mondays.
Any other recommendations? Any webcomics to avoid?
