    Sequential Art is cool. Whenever I read it I want to cat lady to get with the artist guy. Also the little shadows rock it up.

    Do you know what the update schedule is like?

    It seems once a week, give or take?

    Can someone explain achewood to me, cause i really dont find it funny at all. I haven't read every strip they've done, only a handful really, but i just don't like it.

    You can't explain it, you just have to understand it.

    I do enjoy Sequential Art, it's pretty funny, but I feel a little creepy everytime I read it thanks to the "sexy" female animals.

    The main character is an author insert which adds another layer to the creepy factor

    I can see both your points but honestly it doesn't bother me at all, I just think it's a funny comic with some suprisingly nice art.

    I agree. It makes me laugh. Therefore, it is good.

    Oh suck it up.

    Anyways... One comic that I've really enjoyed over the years has been http://www.gamingguardians.com/

    It gets's kind of bad in the more recent arcs since the comic was subject to long hiatuses after Web troll stopped doing the artwork for it, but it's starting to move along again, and I'm hopeful about it's future.

    But I think the resistance I’m getting more has to do with “rawr! Loklar said it! Rage!” than anything else.

    No, it has to do with the fact that you're done nothing but throw lies, blatant flasehoods, and downright dumb statements at us so far.

    Didn't the author of Sequential Art also appear in the comic as a hamster with a totally stacked human assistant?

    BTW, this is still my favorite SA comic.

    I used to read Sequential Art, but eventually stopped. It's one of those comics I don't want to like, but I find appeals to me on the same level that something like LOLcats does. I look at it and go, "Awwww."

    For another pretty good comic about geek culture, read No Pink Ponies. It updates sporadically, but there's a pretty huge archive.

    So it isn't used for hitting balls in sport, or it isn't a furry winged mammal that navigates primarily by sound?

    Either way, I'm not sure I understanding your rating scale o_O

    I am sorry Bri but jeez you have pretty bad comicery taste. Too much soap, too few jokes.

    Now, Daisy Owl that is choice.

    I've really been enjoying Lightyears Away, and Fat Baby. The first is a sci-fi story set in kind of a dystopian future, where a recent parolee is sent to a cutting edge rehabilitation facility, located on a terraformed planet. The art vaguely reminds me of Frank Quitely.

    Fat Baby's about a fat baby that eats things. It starts off with kind of a Garfield-esque repeated punchline, and then quickly branches off into three separate, thoroughly surreal stories. Each story fits into a different genre, and each has stylistic differences to set them apart from each other.

    Awesome Hospital also launched today. It's apparently going to be about awesome doctors who deal with awesome diseases in awesome ways. Which is a concept I can get on board with.

    I find that joke-a-day comics are incredibly shallow. There is a reason I don't read the ones in the news paper.

    I find that soap comics online inevitably devolve into author-inserts and poorly paced love stories sprinkled with fanservice.


    Okay okay I read some soap comics. I think I already linked Family Man, which has been excellent if slow paced. Gunnerkrig Court has also done a quite good job being interesting. It's not that I hate comics with ongoing storylines. It is just that those are all pretty bad comics.

    The answer is, and shall always be, MSPA

    Absurdly funny and an enjoyable storyline!

    It might not be apparent at first, but there is a method to the madness. Oh is there ever.

    Thank god MSPA has such a good update schedule (multiple small updates every day pretty much), because if it took longer than that it would probably make me crazy.

    I read Problem Sleuth once it was all over, but the "MSPA fan reacts to new development" late in the story panel cracked me up so so much.

    No, trust me.

    MSPA will be enough. Problem Sleuth, the completed story, is something like 1700 pages. It's goddamn enormous. Homestuck is pretty freaking long too, is still ongoing, and updates consistently and often times in increments of three or more pages at once throughout the week.

    I was more referring to Homestuck when I talked about enjoyable story and hilarity, mind you.

    Problem Sleuth has a story I guess but it's completely made up as they went along and off the wall. Still good, but there's no method to the madness there. Just madness.

    Goddamnit why is the music for MSPA so good

    Seriously you will grow to love the Flash based updates and their glorious glorious tunes. The beats, they are ever so fresh.

    SBurban Jungle Remix is amazing.

    MSPA is the one webcomic that would not work in any other medium. All of the flash stuff, the little games, the amazing songs, that stuff would be lost if it were printed.
