Favorite Webcomics

Something Positive  Not really sure how to describe this one.  It started out as a group of seriously deranged friends going through life… and they’ve kind of grown and mellowed and moved apart in their 30s… I dunno, it’s kind of like life.  But with a boneless pink cat named choochoobear who can go through the plumbing to steal panties to sell on ebay.

Questionable content  About a group of 20 somethings disaffected hipster youth… or something like that, but with AI.  The AI are awesome.

Gunnerkrigg Court    Love this story-based comic about kids at a very large very strange boarding school, and particularly about one girl with an interesting past who seems to attract things.

Unshelved  The webcomic about librarians for librarians, and you know, everybody interested in reading a webcomic about librarians.

Sheldon Comics  This comic gets better and better all the time… it is totally different from, but also reminds one of Calvin and Hobbes, because of the awesome.  Oh, it’s nominally about a kid-software-whiz-billionaire living with his grandpa, but it’s so much more.

xkcd  The web comic for those of us who feel most comfortable with other people who read xkcd.  (You know… nerds.)

Penny Arcade  The web comic for gamers.

What are your favorite web comics?

    Used to always love the Funny Section of the paper…then I stopped getting the paper…these are great to get my fix! And since they’re online apparently they can be a bit more morbid which is always good. :P Thanks!

    OMG I can’t believe you didn’t list PhD Comics (Piled Higher and Deeper). When I was in grad school, I commiserated with the characters. Now I’m out, it’s a good reminder of why I left academia entirely.

    I also like Toothpaste for Dinner, and Cyanide and Happiness.

    Depends on what you mean by comic. Does The Oatmeal or Very Demotivational count?

    For webcomics I like Two Lumps and Simon’s Cat. Does

    BTW, you’ve been pinged: http://bit.ly/yhJE31

    I also love xkcd and PhD comics. But my most favorite one is 2D googles (http://sydneypadua.com/2dgoggles) I think you will enjoy it too ;). And although I’m not sure if you could call it a webcomic, I also enjoy indexed (http://thisisindexed.com/). And recently discovered Beatrice the biologist (http://www.beatricebiologist.com/) and highly recommend it!

    There are so many but if I was to distil it down to absolute faves there’s couple in the super hero genre –

    Magellan – http://magellanverse.com – a super academy with a vast legacy… serialised, long form, not your usual superhero comic!
    Wonderella – http://nonadventures.com/ – she’s the best worst superheroine ever

    Also –
    Endtown – http://www.gocomics.com/endtown – Cute toons meets the apocalypse
    Bad Machinery – http://scarygoround.com/ – Scary-go-round meets teen sleuths/famous five (kind of)

    I used to read a lot of comics…now I’m down to xkcd and sheldon. I think Penny Arcade used to “speak to me”, but no longer. And Sluggy Freelance too.
    Once in a while I catch up on Dominic Deegan.
