As some have already mentioned, there's already a webcomic thread. The best webcopmic I can recommend is Gunnerkrigg Court. Questionable Content is also good.

If I see another thread of "We already have this thread down in this other section" every other post again, I'm stabbing the lot of you in the eyeball.

With a spork.

A wooden one.

So you get a splinter.

In your eye.

While I'm stabbing it.

Also, none of you bastards mentioned Darths and Droids, what the hell is wrong with you?

I recently discovered FreakAngels.

The navigation is a bit annoying in that there's no consistent "next page" button, but it's a good story

I am *shocked* that no one has yet to mention LilFormers.

I can only assume that there's a dearth of Transformers fans around here.

Granted, its original selling point was that you got to see adorable versions of the Transformers doing endearingly dorkish things, but the comic's branched out to poking cutesy fun at all sorts of popgeeklore now.

This is my favorite strip: http://www.lilformers.com/index.php/200 ... oyles-tng/

I've read about a thousand of them today, be sure to watch where he signs his name, that's my favorite part. :P

One of the comics I read (and which I feel the need to advertise because it's drawn and written by a friend) is grumble. It's a weird comic because... well the characters don't speak english. they speak Grumble (a gibberish script which isn't impossible to read if you figure out the cipher, but isn't english).

It's really well done though, because while you can't read it, that isn't the point. The basic gist comes through in action and mood.

So, yeah. check it out. Because my friend is awesome. Yeah, I'm done advertising. It's only been what? 4000 posts...

My favorite webcomic is definitely Boy on a Stick and Slither. Aside from that and xkcd, I read Questionable Content, Penny Arcade, Perry Bible Fellowship, Moo and Keo, and some of a bunch of other comics such as Dinosaur Comics and the Least I Could Do. I sort of read VGCats, but Scott is so lazy nowadays.

Edit: I recently got all the way through LICD. I also read A Softer World. Once I get through dinosaur comics, I'll start reading Weregeek, as I met the creaters at Calgary Comicon and have been instructed by some friends to read it.

I'm probably a complete dork for being partial to toy photocomics. I just discovered Irregular Webcomic! and (the recently concluded) Terror Island through TV Tropes. I also follow Darths and Droids (also from the creator of IW!), which I of course discovered through its spiritual predecessor DM of the Rings. As far as actual drawn stuff is concerned, I'm hesitant to try anything besides good ol' xkcd, but you'll never know.

Another recently-concluded strip I highly recommend: the not-so-common Stuck

XKCD, of course, and Questionable Content, and (hahaha) Dr. McNinja. And Gunnerkrigg Court. Those are the biggies. (Though GC's really best if you only check it out once in a while, so you can take a huge dose all at once.)

Also: I'm surprised that more people here don't read 1/0 (pronounced "one over zero," I think). It's hilarious, and philosophical, and just all sorts of wonderful. Its author stopped at 1000 strips, but he now does this: http://tailsteak.com/. It isn't quite as good, but there's still some great stuff in there. Tailsteak really just has a personality that comes across in everything he does. Pity it updates so sporadically.

Also: I've been thinking of crawling through the Achewood archives this summer. God help me. All I've read is that Leon Sumbitches storyline, but that was wonderful. Still, years of archives of that stuff... I'm scared.

Also: I occasionally check out Dinosaur Comics and Subnormality. I'd check out Subnormality more often, but it only updates once a week. That guy's got some more stuff on his site though, and it's worth a gander.

Also: Holy crap I just discovered Dresden Codak. I wish there was more. My life is meaningless.

Also: I used the word "also" far too much in this post, and it no longer looks like a word. I sometimes now want to spell it "aslo," but that just gets me thinkin' of Lion Jesus.

That is all.

Not much there, but it's pretty hilarious, imo.

I recently discovered Ursula Vernon's Digger, which is... hmm... humorous epic fantasy with talking wombats?

And (of course) I've always been an enormous fan of HERO, which is... uh... slightly surreal allegorical fantasy with a friendly shapeshifting motorcycle/duck/flying demon mount.

I checked that one out, but was put off. Like Errant Story, the text is just too tiny.

Huh,that's weird. I can see that the text is definitely smaller than, say, xkcd, but before I checked it seemed totally normal-sized. o.o Probably an individual thing.

I also read Questionable Content, User Friendly, and sometimes ctrl alt del.
I discovered Questionable Content at 11:00 pm, on a day when I had a 1 page spanish paper to write by the next day. I didn't finish the paper till around 5:00 am. But it was a fun six hours!

The only one I read that hasn't been mentioned here is pear-pear. It's good, confusing at times but it's just so damn cute :) Updated....once a week/fortnight/whenever he feels like it.

On a side note, does anyone recognise which webcomic this is from? It's the first page, and the rest of the comic isn't like this. I can't remember anything else about it though, I started reading it a few months ago but only had the time to look at the first couple of comics.

Sorry. I'll keep that in mind in the future. I actually only keep up with XKCD regularly. The rest are read intermittently.

I was keeping up with 8 Bit Theater for a while. It was good if you like FF and D&D jokes a lot. It was my introduction to webcomics.

Does anyone else read Subnormality? It's impossibly verbose and seems like an acquired taste but (or maybe because of this?) it deserves a mention.

I'm assuming it's been mentioned, but I can't find it so (probably) again.
Oglaf! NSFW. Describes itself as 'sex comedy' And I'm thinking it just got popular because the server has started going down on Sundays when it updates.

I've been reading all the top quality stuff for years—Penny Arcade, XKCD, Starslip—and have recently gotten into some really top notch stuff such as Bear Nuts and The Adventures of Dr. McNinja.

I find Dr McNinja kind of infuriating when it's page by page. Because some pages have plot, and some pages are just six panels of Dr McNinja walking carefully across a temple or something. I just check it every month or two.

Three things:

1) Spoiler'd for length. I spend way too much time on the internet.
Spoiler:
xkcd, of course
Cyanide and Happiness
SMBC
CAD
Penny Arcade
Dueling Analogs
Buttersafe
Nedroid/Beartato
Awkward Zombie
Surviving the World (it's sort of a comic)

Amazing Superpowers
Brawl in the Family
Doghouse Diaries
MT Your Mind
Chainsawsuit
VG Cats
Space Avalanche

2) Does anybody remember A Simple Apology? It's one the greatest webcomics I've ever read, but the site went down a few years ago. :( The only remnant of it that I could find is this comic.

3) There really should be a giant list of webcomics at the beginning of this thread. Or something. Stumbling through eight pages of text wasn't fun.

I can't do anything to the beginning of the thread, but right now I have the time and inclination to start building such a list.

Geek Culture:
xkcd - A stick figure comic about romance, technology, philosophy, science, maths and other random things
Abstruse Goose - A stick figure comic about maths, romance and science

Shock and Horror
Cyanide and Happiness - A stick figure abou... Oh me yarm THATS DISCUSTING EWWW!!!!

Video Games
Ctrl-Alt-Del - A story based comic about two roommates who enjoy video games, occasionally interspersed with comics based on current video game related events
Penny Arcade - A story based comic about two friends who enjoy video games, occasionally interspersed with comics based on current video game related events
VG Cats - A story based comic about two cats who enjoy video games, occasionally interspersed with comics based on current video game related events

Original Fiction
Gunnercrigg Court - A story about a girl with magical abilities, at a strange school
Girl Genius - A story about the adventures of an amateur mad scientist in a steampunk world
Looking for Group - A fantasy story about a group of adventurers, in a tolkienesque world
Questionable Content - A story about a group of middle class American young-adults, and their lives
Scary-Go-Round - A story about a group of middle class British young-adults, and their lives, with occasional fantasy deviations
Digger - A story about a talking wombat lost in an old east asian empire

Dungeons and Dragons
Order of the Stick - A story about a party of adventurers, and how DnD rules affect their lives.
Darths and Droids - A series of screen caps from the Star Wars movies, with captions that reference DnD rules

That's basically all the comics I'm familiar with, feel free to copy and update it if you want.

Regularly, I read:

  • xkcd
  • PvP
  • PA
  • Sheldon
  • Cat and Girl (not regularly, regularly, but quite)
  • Dinosaur Comics
  • Hark, a Vagrant!
  • Starslip

...plus a bunch of Spanish-language ones.

Occasionally, many others...
