Not sure if this is a good thread but hey, I have yet to see a webcomic subsection.


Anyway here is the deal, discuss any webcomics you see, this serves the duel purpose of:
a. Finding those among us with shared interests
b. Introducing webcomics to others.

For example I read Dr Mcninja, 8 bit theater, Homestuck, and Shortpacked.

These are very good and I recomend them to anyone who is vaguely cool.

Shortpacked has gay people though, but Gays are cool so whatever.


Just a warning.

Just read through all of this over the past couple of days, it's funny stuff.

Very very good comic, but not updated too regularly. It's fantastic though; well worth a read.

EDIT: Oh and naturally http://nuzlocke.com (http://nuzlocke.com/)

I'm currently reading Dr. McNinja, Homestuck and the Nuzlocke comics.

Just finished 8-Bit Theater. D;

Still can't believe it's over.

I'm getting into Cyanide & Happiness. It's daily, and some of it's really funny.

I write my own webcomic, Stickman and Cube. My mum says it's cool.

First page. (http://www.drunkduck.com/Stickman_and_Cube/index.php?p=243766)

Other than that, I'm into El Goonish Shive, Magellan, a buncha things on DrunkDuck... I like webcomics.

Hahaha. Oh crap, plane. I know there is one by a fellow PC user. I'll have to find it. It's Pokemon HGSS oriented, but it's funny as hell.

Why has nobody mentioned xkcd? The power Randall Munroe holds over the internet is staggering. In fact, I don't think I even need to link to xkcd. A quick google search will get you to xkcd in no time.

Aside from that, I also read Wondermark (http://wondermark.com/), Questionable Content (http://questionablecontent.net/index.php), and Lackadaisy Cats (http://www.lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=99). All of them are good.

Oh yes, VG Cats and Super Effective, but they update so slowly so I don't bother. Lackadaisy Cats makes up for it's update schedule with it's superb art, and pedantic attention to detail.

Holy crap, that's rad. I used to read your comic all the time, but I've recently slipped with the reading of it and whatnot.

The comics I mainly read are Eight-Bit Theater, Order of the Stick, and my personal favorite is Schlock Mercenary.

I don't read a lot of web comics, but I do read "Super Effective" from time to time.

I'm somewhat surprised by the lack of mention of Penny Arcade, though they do tend to have an older audience, having been around 13 years and largely being oriented around PC gaming for much of that time.

Others I keep up on are Super Effective, VG Cats, and Blip.

Others that I've read more than 100 of and would like to catch up on/complete:
Homestuck
Allan Comic
8-bit Theater
MegaTokyo

And others that I've read but haven't read in ages:
Order of the Stick
Brawl in the Family
SMBC

Webcomics I have completed:
Problem Sleuth

All those lists are incomplete, though. There are a lot of webcomics I've read that I can't remember the names of right now.

@Otaku
This is what I mean.

I was unaware that Nuzlocke was a existing comic till this moment.

So now I've been able to read it.

It's totally radical.

@Don: Ooooh, another Homestuck fan I see. :3

I subscribe to Brawl in the Family, Buttersafe, Ctrl+Alt+Del, Cyanid & Happiness, Dueling Analogs, Garfield Minus Garfield, Kawaii Not, Penny Arcade, Super Effective, Surviving the World, The Oatmeal, VG Cats, and xkcd.

I thinking Dueling Analogs is the weakest from that list.

In addition to more traditional comic strips. Nice way to start the morning.

C&H (www.explosm.net) (Because xkcd is for Elitist Jerks)
Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red/ (www.dizzy.pestermom.com/thcomic)SWAiJR (Pronounced "Sway-jur." Maybe.)
The Flintlocke Comics (http://pc.gamespy.com/articles/578/578287p1.html) (Back when they still ran...)
Scarlet Webcomic Rhapsody (http://forums.warscentral.com/index.php?showtopic=2898) ("It's also a fetish!") (Similar to SWAiJR, and heavily based off of it. Like SWAiJR, it was made with Create.swf)

Penny Arcade is one of those required reading things for nerds though. It's like the handbook and ****.

I can't go too far back in the archives though, or else I have to read everything I come across. D:

These are my favorites:
Dinosaur Comics (http://www.qwantz.com/)
Least I Could Do (http://www.leasticoulddo.com/) (warning - contains extremely adult humor & language)
Lucid TV (http://www.lucid-tv.com/) (hasn't uploaded in ages, but still awesome)
Overcompensating (http://www.overcompensating.com/)
Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal (http://www.smbc-comics.com/) (some adult humor)
Bear Nuts (http://www.bearnutscomic.com/)
Girls with Slingshots (http://www.girlswithslingshots.com/) (some adult humor)

I also read QC and Dr. McNinja, but someone already said those ones. :)

For me . . . xkcd, Shortpacked!, Dumbing of Age, Ctrl+Alt+Del, Wondermark, Cyanide & Happiness, Questionable Content, El Goonish Shive, megatokyo, Super Effective and VG Cats. There are a few more, I guess, but those are the main ones.

Katie Tiedrich's comics... Awkward Zombie (awkwardzombie.com). Amazing stuff.

I read Doctor McNinja, xkcd, MegaTokyo... all kindsa stuff. Oh! And one of my favorites, Schlock Mercenary (www.schlockmercenary.com). And Least I Could Do (leasticoulddo.com), which is not always entirely appropriate, but amazing nonetheless.

Triffy asked me to post here because he felt awkward listing so many. So here we go...


Ansem Retort (http://www.ansemretort.org/mainpage.php)
Aww man, why is my list alphabetical. I don't want this first. :( Oh well, it's a sprite comic that I used to love but don't... like as much anymore. Either my sense of humour changed or its did or both. Who knows.
Awkward Zombie (http://www.awkwardzombie.com/index.php)
These can be a bit hit or miss for me, but mostly hits. I love the art.
Brawl in the Family (http://www.brawlinthefamily.com/)
Haven't really been as interested in this lately but it has a lot of really good comics. The artist has a lot of neat ideas.
Buttersafe (http://www.buttersafe.com/)
This one is really weird. XD; The comics are strange so you have to have a bit of an odd sense of humour to like them.
Candi - A College Story (http://www.candicomics.com/)
I only read this one a few weeks ago because I was procrastinating on studying (like I am doing this very moment) and I was pleasantly surprised.
Eerie Cuties
Mostly just keep up with this because I love the artist so much.
F@NBoYS (http://www.fanboys-online.com/index.php)
Doesn't update much. Went almost a year with nothing but creator has updated a few times in the last few weeks? Yay?
Flaky Pastry (http://flakypastry.runningwithpencils.com/index.php)
Sort of a fantasy mixed with sci-fi sort of thing? I think? I dunno. It's pretty good.
Garfield Minus Garfield (http://garfieldminusgarfield.net/)
...title says it all, really. I don't read the original comic (it doesn't... fit my sense of humour at all? idk) but this is so quirky and out there that I love it. XD
Goodbye Chains (http://www.goodbyechains.com/)
GAY COWBOYS. Or a gay one. Or something. idk. I lost the plot ages ago. I need to reread this since I've only been skimming for ages. XD
Gunshow (http://www.gunshowcomic.com/)
A lot of them don't make sense. They are awesome.
Hark, A Vagrant! (http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php)
Mostly touches on literature and history but there's something for everyone. I love this artist and her style.
Heart Gold, Soul Silver Adventures (http://heartgoldsoulsilveradventures.smackjeeves.com/)
DEAD. ;_; But still a great read. I check it from time to time hoping there'll be an update but I'm too much of an optimist.
Hipster Hitler (http://hipsterhitler.com/)
Hitler as a hipster. I only added this to my list this week. XD;
Indexed (http://thisisindexed.com/)
Kind of like Surviving the World (below). Updates with graphs. :)
Manly Guys Doing Manly Things (http://thepunchlineismachismo.com/)
Was introduced to this by Kotaku. It's pretty good!
Menage à 3
...as the title suggests, this one isn't worksafe at all (but not overly explicit) but it's done by one of my favourite artists (Giselle :D) and it's hilarious.
Namir Deiter (http://namirdeiter.com/)
A friend submitted fanart for this yeaaaars ago and it was my introduction to webcomics. I kind of keep up with it mostly out of loyalty. o_O
Penny and Aggie (http://www.pennyandaggie.com/index.php)
The first comic I stumbled upon with Gisele as the artist (does Menage à Trois). I really liked it early on but now it's gotten silly and hard to follow. :s I don't want to attribute that to the new artist but I don't think he works well with the writer... idk.
Penny Arcade (http://www.penny-arcade.com/)
Nerd staple. Not much more to say. Sometimes the news updates are funnier than the comics.
Pictures for Sad Children (http://picturesforsadchildren.com/index.php)
I don't know anyone else who likes this but I discovered it last year and I love it. ._. Dunno how to describe it though, lol.
The Phoenix Requiem (http://requiem.seraph-inn.com/)
EVERYONE GO READ THIS. The art is gorgeous and the story is intriguing. It's just amazing, and updates a couple pages at a time, which is nice.
You Say It First (http://www.soapylemon.com/)
Only picked this one up because it overlapped with Namir Deiter once. :s I really only skim it everyday now...
Surviving the World (http://survivingtheworld.net/)
I recommend this to everyone. It's by a university prof & it's not a typical webcomic but it's still brilliant.
xkcd (http://xkcd.com/)
'Nother nerd staple.


Did not link to the ones that commonly have a bit of nudity or sexual jokes. You can google those for yourself if you want. Am also currently flipping through the history of SMBC. And I have about 6 more bookmarked that I've been rec'd but haven't had time to sit down and read anything from them yet. And I also read C&H sometimes (only when Kris posts his stuff on deviantART... I don't much care for the other artists).

I know I'm probably missing a bunch. ;_;

And augggh totally adding a bunch of the ones from this thread to my "potentials" list... XD

I'm quite suprised no one has metioned Pokemon-X (http://[URL=http://pokemonx.comicgenesis.com/) yet. Another webcomic I quite enjoy is Pokemon Contest Challenge (http://www.drunkduck.com/Pokemon_Contest_Challenge/index.php). Nuzlocke Comics are pretty rad in their own right as well, I'll refrain from posting a link as Nuzlocke's main site links to a forum, but it shouldn't be too hard finding the site with access to Google.
EDIT: How could I have forgotten about Super-Effective?

Really trying hard to get around the "Three Strikes" rule with webcomics, but...

Basically, I see three webcomics that I hate on your list, I throw the whole thing out. :P

Yay, webcomics!

List of the ones I follow:

The Meek - meekcomic.com - Fantasy, I guess, ongoing, exciting story so far with great art and great characters, pretty new.
Hark! A Vagrant - harkavagrant.com - Comics by Kate Beaton, witty, mostly about history and other fun things that pertain to my interests.
Manly Guys Doing Manly Things - thepunchlineismachismo.com - Fun videogame humour strip about ridiculously macho men.
xkcd - xkcd.com - nerdy humour.

I tried to read Homestuck and aborted after a day of going through it with no end in sight. I may go back to it when I have some time to read it (aka when not procrastinating for something else). I've also recently discovered Dinosaur Comics (qwantz.com), and I am beginning to love it.

(sorry about urls everywhere, can't directly link stuff yet)
