My Favorite Webcomics

November 30th, 2008 by

Here is a list of some of my favorite webcomics. as the title indicated. I hope that it covers enough genres to entertain everybody.

Questionable Content

A well drawn comic centered around pretty much nothing. It has a very consecutive plot, and is quite hysterical. This is a rather generic description, but I can’t think of anything else to say. sorry. just check it out. The art starts out pretty bad, but one nice thing is watching the art advance. it gets very good by the end.

XKCD

A geeky, sarcastic, intelligent, stick figure comic. it has a rudimentary recurring cast, but definently no plot. it is absolutely hysterical, and all the humor is very intelligent. The beginning of the archives is just a bunch of pencil sketches, but eventually he figures out photoshop or something, and the drawings get nice and crisp. for a little bit extra, don’t forget to check the alt-text by mousing over the comic.

Partially Clips

A comic for grownups. That’s how it bills itself. Each comic is a series of repeated frames with word bubbles. that’s it. but the comics are so bizarre, so out of the ordinary, you can’t help but laugh. the humor is definately sarcastic, cruel, and sardonic.

Goblins

An unconventional comic, following a party of D&D goblins, as opposed to the party of heros. It gives the reader a different perspective, something new. it has decent artwork, but starts out in black and white.

Looking For Group

This is one of my favorites. A fantasy based comic with great artwork, sequential plot, and hilarious dialogue, there are no flaws with this comic. it places the epitome of good, a light elf named Kale, into a party with the epitome of evil, an undead warlock named Richard.

Commissioned Comic

A well drawn (usually) non-sequential comic following the main character O. it pretty much about nothing, and every once in a while it comes up with a mini arc. it is just a kind of laid back comic. sometimes they play D&D.

Dan and Mab’s Furry Adventure

A comic featuriang a wide variety of anthropomorphic characters in a fantasy setting. the characters have very nicely set personalities, and are all very well defined. As per usual, the art starts out like crap, then progresses. it has a very sequential plot, but sometimes jumps into self reference when the artist doesn’t feel like making a strip. or is sick.

The Peons

A great comic centering around the denizens of Antarctica. there are three human characters (to begin with). the King, and his two servitors, Meryl and Balthazar. Meryl is basically the straight man for Balthazar’s EVIL tendencies. the rest of the cast are penguins, who are all unnamed and basically interchangeable, save for the fact that a couple of them have odd personality quirks. like the one who only says “Q-tip”. ever.

One Manga

A massive compendium of manga, all readable online. what else is there to say?

The Webcomic List

If all else fails, then you can check this website out. it is an archive of pretty much ALL the webcomics out there. seriously.

    I’m going to try and give each of these more than a cursory glance in the near future. I’ve already checked out Commissioned Comic a bit, the art is really good. (And of course, I’ve already read all of XKCD.)

    I like questionable content. It mixes silly but mostly mundane relationship plots, with silly out of nowhere elements such as the tiny profane helper robot.

    You’ve got LFG but no leasticoulddo love? I keep hearing about Questionable Content, I’ve gotta give it another chance (I just couldn’t get into it). One you missed, though, is Night Zero (http://www.nightzero.com), which has a REALLY cool look to it, which makes it worth RSS’ing on its own.
