Webcomics, read any?

Postby Qwertyuiopasd on Fri Jul 24, 2009 8:35 pm

I regularly read the following webcomics, in alphabetical order:

- 8-Bit Theater. Good, but wrapping up :(
- Awkward Zombie
- Buttersafe
- Circle Versus Square
- Ctrl+Alt+Del. I like the one shots that make fun of games, and little else.
- Cyanide and Happiness
- Darths & Droids
- Diesel Sweeties
- Dominic Deegan. Less and Less impressed daily.
- Garfield Minus Garfield. Originally was good, but sort of running out of steam, I think.
- Girl Genius
- Multiplex
- Penny Arcade
- Questionable Content
- The Adventures of Dr McNinja
- The Dreamland Chronicles. Sort of slow and for kids, but entertaining enough.
- The Order of the Stick
- the WAREHOUSE
- Thinkin' Lincoln
- Warbot in Accounting
- xkcd. Not as always funny as people say, but there are really good ones often enough. Like Apple.

Yours?

The Adventures of Disgraph T. Dwarf
XKCD
VG Cats
Penny Arcade
Flintlocke (recently had its series finale, but still a funny series to read through if you haven't before)
Cagle's political cartoons (technically not web comix, but a good source for political cartoons)
The Scout Report
Get Fuzzy (again, technically not a web comic, but who reads physical newspapers anymore?)
Dark Legacy Comics
Looking For Group (it starts as just a goofy WoW-based comic, but the writer caught a case of Illustrations of Grandeur, when a web comic artists decides to get serious/arty/dramatic with what used to be a comedic strip)
WoW, Eh?
NPC
Cru the Dwarf (warning: some of the content on that site is NSFW)
Experience Points
Teh Gladiators

God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

Lately, I've only been reading four.

Questionable Content
Menage a 3
Eerie Cuties
Khaos Komix (the only one I care at all about, though they haven't updated in a good while.)

And PK, I get all of my news from physical papers. I also read Get Fuzzy in the Post's Style section quite frequently.

Wow, I've got nothing on you guys. And I thought I read webcomics a lot.

xkcd
Least I Could Do
Looking For Group (sort of)
The Adventures of Dr. McNinja
Ctrl+Alt+Del
Questionable Content
Hark! A Vagrant.
Pictures For Sad Children
Order of the Stick (sort of)

I also read the (almost) weekly updates of Bleach, Naruto and One Piece on Onemanga.com.

Questionable Content and XKCD. I also enjoy Surviving The World which describes itself as a webcomic but it doesn't really fit into any standard description.

None of you guys read Jesus and Mo? It's blasphemously hilarious.

Here's my list of regulars:

Basic Instructions
Pearls Before Swine (also not really a webcomic but a comic found on the web)
Dilbert (not as consistently funny as he used to be)
xkcd (of course)
Questionable Content
goats (Just recently added this one)
a softer world
Dinosaur comics
"Oook." - The Librarian

Basic instructions and Jesus and Mo are good, I've seen a fair bit of those comics, but I don't read 'em regularly. That may change, though...

Dr. McNinja was at one time a personal favorite.

I read Warbot in Accounting. Very depressing stuff.

I used to read Questionable Content.

Flintlocke was good too, especially since I used to play WoW a lot. :/

Cyanide and Happiness is always pretty good.

There are others, but I've forgotten 'em.

I believe there was a thread by a similar name once, but it has sinec sunk into the quicksand that claims most threads...

Order of the Stick
XKCD
Jesus and Mo
Medium Large
Basic Instructions
And I used to read Cectic, and SPQR Blues, but neither of them has been updating regularly.

I'll also check in with Comics I don't Understand from time to time. And I read the daily comics in the Post, even though they have shrunk them so far as to be almost unreadable.

This forum is not a comic!

...

Yet...

Someone with more time and way more artistic ability should create a webcomic of this forum.

One could do just a sprite comic stealing all our avatars as playing our characters.

But what would we do for a setting?

[quote="Qwertyuiopasd"]...xkcd. Not as always funny as people say, but there are really good ones often enough...../quote]

Actually there are a lot of them I wouldn't get if I hadn't had as much math and physics as I did in college. Usually XKCD is hilarious, and it's funnier the more over-educated you are. They recently had one about Erdos numbers, and I didn't even have to look it up. I am such a nerd.
