    I have significant doubts that there's anyone left on the Internet who hasn't heard of Sinfest.

    In any case, it hasn't really be any good for several years now. Ishida should try starting something new already.

    Good call Geebs. I'd been wanting to pimp some various underappreciated webcomics, but I hate making threads.

    If anyone's not reading North World, Red Mask, Dr. McNinja, or Horribleville, you really should be.

    North World is kind of like what the baby of Scott Pilgrim and Dungeons and Dragons might look like. It focuses mainly on a slacker adventurer named Conrad who's been called back to his hometown both for his ex-girlfriend's wedding, and to handle some monster-related trouble they've been having. I highly reccomend it.

    nw01003sg8.jpg

    Red Mask is kind of an odd, lesser-known comic that I first saw whent he artist was pimping it out in the Artist's Corner. It's about a world populated by these amorphous cloud-like beings that wear masks to characterize themselves. The entire comic's also done in CGI models, giving the comic kind of a surreal feeling that's really appropriate to the subject matter. As for the plot, while there's only a few dozen pages up so far, it's just been following the title character, Ab Redmask, a adventuring mercenary with a very Hellboy-like disposition. So far he's been hired to retrieve treasure from an ancient tomb, hired a prostitute, and then called away to a meeting with the wealthiest blob in town, a man who seems to think Ab is more important than he might seem.

    redmaskqf7.jpg

    Horribleville's just.. weird. It's a semi-autobiographical comic done by KC Green. A lot of his comics incorporate some very self deprecating humor, as well as a lot of dream-like, crazy fantasy stuff. It's probably the single funniest webcomic out there. That may seem like a bold statement, but once you read it you'll understand.

    Does this mean I'm allowed to joke about finding this cool new comic called "Penny Arcade"?

    Anyway, I guess I'll get things started by tossing out a few names. I'll avoid the obvious, like PBF and 8-Bit Theatre.

    I've always enjoyed the work of Drew Weing, particularly Pup and the Journal Comic. He does seem to have a huge problem with starting projects and never finishing them, but the things he actually gets around to making tend to be pretty spectacular.

    Count Your Sheep by Adrian Ramos is another good one; very simple, but it plays it more as a strength than a weakness. The whole thing is very cute with the occassional touch of something deeper.

    Ryan Estrada doesn't have a webcomic in the sense of having something regularly published, but he does have a lot of good comics on the web. The only problem is that the navigation for them is pretty horrendous since he redesigned the site.
    I have significant doubts that there's anyone left on the Internet who hasn't heard of Sinfest.

    I, uh, hadn't heard of Sinfest.

    My favorite webcomics are Lackadaisy and Gone with the Blastwave.

    They have great writing and absolutely wonderful art.

    Of course, largely as a consequence of the latter, their updates are very infrequent.

    Also, Achewood, but again, I think most people are already familiar with that.

    Three Panel Soul's pretty good. It's made by the dudes who did Mac Hall, but in a much more realistic style, and it has more of a slice-of-life kind of humor to it. It also has the distinction of being the only webcomic to get the author fired and have police show up at his door.

    020zy2.gif

    Also, for anyone who hasn't noticed my obnoxious, self-promoting sig, there's currently an Artist's Corner Battle Tournament going down here. There's a lot of cool stuff going down over there, and there's even a few Graphic Violence regulars participating. It's pretty plot-driven at times, but it's also fun to just enjoy the face-punching. Check it out you homps!

    Jack
    An utterly amazing comic that depicts the lives of various characters that exist in heaven, purgatory, earth, or hell, and frequently follows the life of Jack, the grim reaper. If you can put aside the fact that it's furry, You'll quickly come to appreciate the complex story tha is being told.

    I tend to like whatever comes out of Realm of Atland. It has a sort of a generic fantasy "group of heroes go a-questin'" story...but with more awesome and voluptuous women included. It only updates once a week, though.

    Multiplex is great for...you know...movie-related comics. Artwork isn't as good as other comics, but the humor more than makes up for it.

    Ah, and I just saw that somebody already added Team Special Olympics. Some of it's really random and weird (Okay, all of it), but most of the daily blurbs are great.
    Also - AVOID "HUMANIMALS" AT ALL COSTS. REPLACE INSTEAD WITH "A STEEP PRICE FOR PIE." Harry Osborn says that the pie is "so good."

    Oh yeah. Aaaaaand....Rob and Elliot has some of the most consistently hilarious stuff...ever. Plus it's had some pretty good artwork even from the beginning. Yeah.

    That's about it on my general list.

    www.somethingpositive.net is a pretty amusing comic with occasional gaming humor thrown in, but does not center around it.

    www.flemcomics.com is the first webcomic attempt by James L. Grant, the illustrator from Two Lumps. I got into this one during the early days of the "Jay" storyline, so naturally that's the one I'm going to suggest you start out with. It's extremely hilarious, and quite offensive at most times.

    http://catmydog.comicgenesis.com/ Edible dirt. The name really says it all. It is brilliant in every sense of the word.

    Sexy Losers is worth looking up, too, but isn't as good as either of these. I feel the same way about The Devil's Panties, which ironically isn't about the devil or panties at all.

    Comics I read that haven't yet been mentioned:

    Overcompensating

    Jeffrey Rowland, being hilarious. Known for making the first Snakes on a Plane shirt.


    Looking for Group
    , and Least I Could Do


    Two comics done by the same people, one with WoW flavor.

    Toothpaste for Dinner

    Everyone's probably heard of this one, or at least seen a few. Guy manages to fit a great deal of hilarity into some stick figure drawings, and do it every day. Oh, and his wife has a comic, too- Natalie Dee


    Something Positive
    (Edit: Beat'd)

    'Nother ridiculously well known comic. To see if you'll like it, read the first comic. It's a good filter.

    Diesel Sweeties

    Read it for the shirts alone.

    Warning: The following are D&D themed comics, in order of most story driven to least.

    Dominic Deegan

    Goblins (secret to enjoying this one is to pretend it updates 4 or so days late, because it usually does.)

    Order of the Stick

    VG Cats seems more miss than hit for me these days. That's probably just a consequence of me becoming more and more distant from the whole videogame culture though.

    Anyhow, everyone should read Return to Sender. It's a fantastic comic about two friends, the somber, put-upon Often, and the spastic, though oddly capable Colette. Often, after moving into his new apartment, discovers a mysterious mail slot in the wall. Every so often a piece of mail will drop from the slot, directing him to a specific location, where he accidentally triggers an event; sometimes with a positive outcome, sometimes not. It's really just a beautiful comic, with some neat monochromatic coloring, quirky character designs, and an offbeat sense of humor that's 70% Doug Tenapel and 30% Jhonen Vasquez.

    Unfortunately, the artist abandoned it at the end of the second chapter, and has since moved onto other projects. Nevertheless, it stands out as one of the best, albeit very short, webcomics I've ever read.

    I enjoy spreading good comics around. And yeah, I catch that same Ed vibe.

    Speaking of good comics, how about Minus? It's a very random kind of comic, following the adventures of an omnipotent adolescent. The comic basically follows her as she does sometimes horrible, and sometimes kind things to people, all with a very childlike sense of ambivalence and enthusiasm. The comic itself is beautiful as well, with each page containing numerous panels that slowly reveal the punchline, and illustrations done in eye-catching watercolors.

    Here's a comic that best captures the tone of the series, linked for H-scroll rape.
