(Vanity) Which webcomics do you read?

Posted on 11/15/2008 12:53:05 PM PST by Tanniker Smith

I haven't asked this in a while, but what webcomics do you read? There are thousands of them out there these days, and little time to go through them all to find the good ones.


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Computers/Internet; Humor
KEYWORDS: comic; webcomic
Ones that I regularly check include:

Less often, but I try to catch up on:

And others that I'll add when I either remember them or look up their URLs. I think I still have Ctrl-Alt-Del, VG Cats and Three Panel Soul linked on my iGoogle page, but I can't remember the last time I clicked on any of those links.

What's everyone else reading?

Damn. I don't even know what webcomics are. I read the comics in the Stars and Stripes.

I am so behind the times. I'd better catch up. ;-)

Damn. I don't even know what webcomics are.

I read mine by candlelight, while the treadmill hamsters power the computer's generator. ;)

Highly recommended:

Schlock Mercenary. Far future mercenaries in space. It has a complex, witty, and a little bloody-minded story line. It is best to start from the beginning, and navigation is unusual, with the arrows to the right of the comic. Daily.

http://www.schlockmercenary.com/

Wapsi Square. About a short and busty Hispanic anthropologist who is surrounded by mythological creatures and demons. Another good one to start from the beginning. Daily.

http://www.wapsisquare.com/

Slow wave. The artist turns people’s dreams into a four panel comic. Weekly.

http://www.slowwave.com/

Sinfest. An odd comic about Slick, a short guy artist; his beautiful and vain muse who he is in love with but spurns him; God, the devil, Buddha, Jesus, and the dragon. Vaguely a Faustian story, which in the last few weeks has been harping a bit much on politics. Daily.

http://www.sinfest.net/

Bob the Angry Flower. Disassociated rantings of a supernaturally powerful flower creature. Weekly.

http://www.angryflower.com/

Strange Candy. The adventures of a group of mostly women through various alternative universes of Japanese manga pop culture. A little adult oriented.

I didn't think about the print comics that are online. To be honest, I know many of them are available, but I don't think to look for them.

I only buy the newspaper on Sunday, so I see print comics once per week. I should start bookmarking the ones that I like so I can read them daily if I want to.

Doing that, I'd probably make sure that I read Foxtrot and Get Fuzzy.
Too bad that Prince Valiant isn't online. (Seriously, PV is probably the biggest reason that I get the Sunday paper, followed by the Kakuro puzzle.)

I had never seen that before. It’s great, but warning to others: GV, AL, SSC.

A fair and representative sample, for any/all curious fellow FReepers:

Yes, that is a good sample. I had to bookmark this one for some undetermined future use:

http://alienlovespredator.com/?id=114

I thought I’d send it to someone to share the enjoyment but I can’t figure out any of my friends or family that would appreciate it.

Sorry I don’t have time to post links at this point.

Dilbert

Sheldon. The story of a kid who invents a way to speed up the internet and makes billions, and his pet talking duck. I recommend it highly.

Unshelved. A librarian’s comic.

Wondermark. VERY strange

For the artistically-challenged, there's stripcreator.com -- make your own webcomic!

I’m with Kent. Mike Ramirez and attackcartoons.com are not to be missed. I do like Day by Day a lot.

I forgot to mention Garfield Minus Garfield, which can be really, really strange.
