Your Favorite Webcomics

So, what are your favorite webcomics? What's on your list of regulars, and why do you read them regularly? Drop a comment and let me know what you like to read, what strips you think are top-tier cartooning, what's funny, what's awesome. Have you ever had an experience where you trimmed down your check-regularly list and gained an increased appreciation for the comics you continued to read? I'm looking forward to hearing about your favorites.

I'm a big fan of we the robots! Just wish it updated more often.

What about Calamities of Nature? http://www.calamitiesofnature.com/ Good laughs. Nice coloring. Consistent schedule.

I prefer longer form comics; most of which only update once a week or ended :(

I read a bunch of webcomics but I can't say, honestly, that I enjoy all of them most of the time. Some stand up better when you read them in big chunks (like Wapsi Square).

The best, though, are Least I Could Do, Ctrl-Alt-Del, Penny Arcade, and Friendly Hostility.

I'd also give a passing nod to Girl Genius.

And an honorable mention to Culdesac, which is a syndicated comic that I happen to read online, but is more consistent and more consistently FUNNY than any webcomic I've come across.

Calamities of Nature and Rice Boy are also some of my favorites. I'm actually planning to mention Calamities in Wednesday's blog post. One Swoop Fell and Shi Long Pang both look very good, especially in the art department--methinks they merit further investigation!

LICD ain't my cup of tea, but I can't deny it's very funny and exceptionally well-drawn, especially considering that it's a daily.

CAD has decent enough artwork and some clever gags, but the one-note facial expressions and unnecessarily wordy jokes, and . Still, I really enjoy its "Ethan McManus, Space Archaeologist" choose-your-own-adventure installments, which I think have much stronger art and humor than normal. Fore example, there's one that is going on right now!

Anonymous, what is the premise of We the Robots, and where can I find it?

minus on kiwisbybeat is amazing...

but in terms of comedy, dinosaur comics, xkcd and tuna carpaccio p.i. are all awesome for different reasons

Jackson said...

Never heard of Tuna Carpaccio there, Gerry. Can you give us a link?

The Mansion of E - huge cast, rambling story, nearly 2000 strips and we're part way through day 2. It makes Freefall look positively speedy, but in a good way.
