My personal favorite , Order of the stick a fantasy role play comic spoof. With a decent spin on all the D&D cliches.

Looking forward to hearing of other peoples favorites.

    If you were ever a fan of Larsons FarSide stuff, try SMBC, it's twisted and the art is simplistic, but god it can be hilarious.

    There's a special place in my heart (the one that secretly loved Days of Our Lives when he was like 8 years old) for Questionable Content. It's heartwarming - and often hilarious - drama of a modern day soap-opera-mixed-with-comedy variety.

    I love Order of the Stick just as much, but it's already been mentioned. =)

    Let's be friends again is 60/40 hit/miss when it comes to making fun of comics and not their side stuff like their own heroes.

    And there's a new comic called Gutters that seems to be spearheaded by the Least I Could Do guy. Some of the comics are really funny, others less so.

    Haha, found this comic the other week. I linked the one with Quesada and the child-spiderman-fan in the bitching thread a couple of days ago, actually had me laughing out loud work.

    That webcome is awesome. It's NSFW as hell, but it's also funny as fuck. It's basically fantasy comedy porn most of the time, though there a fair number of SFW strips.

    Kate Beaton would like you to stop saying things like that.

    Anyhow, some of my favorites:

    Gastrophobia, a comedy series set in ancient Greece, with mythological trappings. It primarily focuses on the relationship between the outcast Amazonian Phobia, and her son Gastro. Very, very funny, and laden with terrific/terrible puns. Currently the creator's running some short one-off strips that, while funny, don't really give a good indication of what the series is really like. So read it from the beginning.

    Wonderella, a superhero parody that always manages to be a lot more clever than you'd think it'd be.

    NSFWDAR!NSFW, a now concluded comic based on the real life of cartoonist Erika Moen, mainly detailing her relationships, and daily struggles with the mundane misfortunes we all encounter.

    Gunshow, KC Green's non sequitur humor comic. I think the main strip's been in a bit of a slump lately, but the dude always brings his A-game for his Anime Club strips. So, definitely check those out.

    NSFWEffort ComicsNSFW is basically what would happen if you combined Who Killed Roger Rabbit, Scott Pilgrim, and gratuitous sexual content. Set in a world where cartoons live side-by-side with humans, it mainly revolves around twenty-something layabout Samson, and his handful of friends and coworkers. The first few strips are mostly one-off things, and it doesn't really find its footing until the actual story kicks off. But it's probably my favorite slice-of-life comic currently going.

    Love Me Nice is a comic in a similar vein. Again, people and cartoons live side-by-side, yadda yadda yadda. But, this one focuses on the life of Mac, a surly cartoon monkey and star of a popular children's show, and his girlfriend/agent Claire, who's forced to curtail his obnoxious behavior at every turn. Part slice-of-life, and part Hollywood drama. I only recently started reading it, after being wary of it for a long time, but it's actually a really cute, funny comic.

    Dr. McNinja's one everyone's familiar with, but it still needs to be mentioned. It stars Dr. McNinja, a doctor who is also a ninja, as well as his sidekick Gordito, gorilla Judy, and velociraptor Yoshi.

    Johnny Wander is another slice-of-life comic, based on the lives of the artist and writer, as well as their friends. Really, really funny and endearing. The current strip's not very good, but go look at this one, as it's a favorite of mine.

    Spinnerette's a fun superhero comic, that mocks traditional conventions of the genre while still embracing them. If you like Adam Warren's Empowered, you'll probably like this. It's also notable for being a really good comic with a really shitty website, which seems plucked directly from 1998.

    Awesome Hospital has that kind of straight-faced absurdity that reminds me of Dr. McNinja. Basically, it's about a hospital where everything's awesome. The awesome doctors fight awesome diseases and deal with awesome personal problems.

    Also, Centipede Damascus and CorporateLogo have excellent taste in webcomics, so listen to them too.

    When she used to post on Something Awful, I seem to recall her talking about how she lived and worked at some off-site place with a bunch of dudes, and had to put up with a lot of sexual harassment. So I can see her being a little more sensitive to that kind of thing than others.

    I think she's overreacting, but I imagine that she has to listen to that kind of thing a lot, and probably gets a lot more enthusiastic e-mails and such that go a step further.

    Imagine that every time you posted a comment here, someone replied, "Oh shit, that was awesome. Dude, I want to marry and fuck you like there is no tomorrow, brah!" It might be flattering at first, but you'd probably get sick of it pretty quick.

    The whole "want to marry you/have your kids" thing is just so common as a compliment these days I don't see it as sexist anymore.

    Because otherwise Kurt Busiek's home would constantly be surrounded by people wanting to marry him (and who wouldn't want to marry him?)

    3. Nedroid
    4. Gunnerkrigg Court

    I can't read Achewood, though I appreciate it. I have enjoyed Order of the Stick when I come across it, but I'm blatantly missing half the jokes. I love Oglaf but I think the best jokes are the ones without sex in 'em.

    I'm forgetting loads of comics, but FreakAngels is something you guys should check out.

    Gunnerkrigg Court started off kinda eh for me but then right around
    the chapter where Kat falls in love with the guy that "decides" to become a bird
    everything clicked and now it's probably one of my favorites behind Achewood and Penny Arcade.

    Coyote is the best.

    Eh, I wouldn't call it uptight. Sure, it seems uptight from the position of "we're just joking around dude", but think about how many times she has probably heard it.

    The people who say it probably think they are so clever, so witty. "Here I am expressing the fact that I think she is kind of hot I mean I know it would never happen but I'm gonna put it out there anyway as a joke and see what happens"

    I mean who wants to put up with that over and over?

    Anyway, yes, her comics are great.

    Thanks to this forum in general, I've become invested in MSPA, which was perhaps the best idea of all time. I don't know why it took me so long to get into it, but it is definitely worth it.

    Yeah. agreed. I sure hope it picks up again soon :\

    Aside from Achewood, some of my other faves:

    Meek
    SMBC
    Nedroid
    Hark, A Vagrant
    Octopus Pie
    Pictures for Sad Children
    The Abominable Charles Christopher (effing beautiful)
    Cat Rackham (fantastic, and you should all check it out!)

    There are a small handful of others that I check out less frequently, or just stopped checking for no real reason (Lackadaisy is also a beautifully drawn comic).

    Oh Cat Rackham, yeah, thats #5.

    I also think Charles is great, but I'm up to date on it so I think for my own sanity I'm going to avoid it for like four months. No plot in any other media moves as slow as TACC.

    But I think we can all say what the better webcomics are, what is your favourite webcomic that isn't that good?

    For me it's Kagerou, which is only now picking up, though it's had great moments if you have the time to trawl through the archives, which are extensive. It was one of the first webcomics I came across, so it holds a place in my heart, but I've seen no one else ever speak of it.

    A good page to start you off:

    That's true...I actually haven't checked it out for two months or so, now, for that exact reason. :P

    For comics like that, I like to take a break from them for awhile, so that when I come back I have a handful to read through.


    [edit] In terms of "eh" webcomics, I read Questionable Content, even though I think it's pretty mediocre-at-best. A lot of it is predictable, and aside from a few very minor tweaks, it seems that every single character in the comic has the exact same super-indie, super-witty, goofy personality. I wish they were a bit more distinct from eachother there...and also in the art, to be honest. All he really does to differentiate them visually is to change their hair color and make Fay vaguely "plump", which really just makes her look like the only one in the cast who isn't ridiculously thin.

    Homestuck is probably the best webcomic there is at the moment. It's one of the few that could only exist online making use of animated gifs for most of it's pages as well as frequent Musical interludes and even the occasional interactive section.

    That is pretty much exactly how I feel about QC. I mean, I'm curious to see what happens, but I don't really like the characters personalities that much. With that said, I do think they've seen some character development, but still.

    Achewood has just been awful lately. I still donated 55$.

    I think of Achewood as that really good friend I used to have, who ran into some life problems, and borrowed 200 bucks and never paid me back. You know, I'm cool with them. If I see them at the bar, we have a beer together. I don't get the tab, however.
