Other Comics

Postby PortableNuke on Mon Jul 24, 2006 9:05 pm

It's the obligatory "Post your favorite webcomics" thread.

<a href="http://www.questionablecontent.net">Questionable Content</a>
Whether it's jumped the shark or not is debatable, but it's still a fun comic.

<a href="http://www.errantstory.com">Errant Story</a>
It's a fantasy comic that skewers and roasts genre conventions and formulas while sitting firmly in the genre. It's very smartly written with a very biting wit.

<a href="http://www.achewood.com">Achewood</a>
Chris Onstad is one of those brilliantly twisted minds that deserves every once of fame he gets. He kind of reminds me of Gary Larson a little bit in the esotericness of his strip.

<a href="http://www.misfile.com">Misfile</a>
By far one of the most original story line ideas I've seen in a while. Good plot, good characters, and good art work.

<a href="http://www.pholph.com/">Jack</a>
It's a furry comic with heavy spiritual overtones. It's very dark with horror themes at times; it makes 8:1 look kind of sunny in comparison. Also one of the tightest written and developed character comics I read. It does need to be read from the beginning though.

<a href="http://www.marilith.com/">Marilith</a>
It's a story about an assassin who is trying to retire. It's pretty good. Very noirish and sarcastic.

<a href="http://www.krakowstudios.com/">Krakow</a>
Krakow's original sillier comic.

<a href="http://www.angels2200.com/">Angels2200</a>
Another comic that spoofs it's genre while remaining reverent. Very good art work and very good plot, but sometimes spotty updating due to life.

<a href="http://www.ubersoft.net/">Help Desk</a>
The story of a boy who works on the helpdesk of the biggest software company in the world. Absurdity abounds.

<a href="http://www.malfunctionjunction.net/">Malfunction Junction</a>
Matt Milby's comic after he closed Gin and the Devil. Fans of Something Positive and Queen of Wands should check it out. Same type of humor except more about Matt's life.

Jack is pretty cool. I've met Dave Hopkins a few times at various conventions.

Well here is my favourites

http://roadwaffles.com/
I've been following this comic since 2000 and loved it through all the ups and downs there has been.

Ok so it was better before and all that, but it still makes me laugh

More to come

You people read other comics? Blasphemy! You're no true fans!


...that, or I'm too lazy to make a list. >_>

Eh.. okay.

From the top of my head (meaning in random order and incomplete), I read: Narbonic, Skinny Panda, Count Your Sheep, Peanuts (duh), Calvin & Hobbes, Penny & Aggie, Shortpacked, For better or for worse, Eat the roses, Aldus Maycombe, Todd and Penguin, Norm & Cory, Stuff sucks, aaaand some others I can't think of right now and I'm at work so I can't check.

Anyway. I read a lot of... cute, apparently. Well, SOMETHING needs to counterbalance the depressions resulting from reading 8:1, right? ;)

Were I ever to make a top five of the webcomics I read, 8:1 would be in it.

Count Your Sheep is good. I haven't gotten around to catching up on it after taking a year off though.

My faves, in no peculiar odor:

8:1
Sinfest
Scary Go Round
Modern Love
Stuff Sucks
The Perry Bible Fellowship
Diesel Sweeties

There are others I read, but I don't particularly like them all that much; I just kinda got hooked on the storyline. The above I read because I like them.

Oh, I read my own comic too. Because somebody has to check it for typos.

I stopped reading 8:1 because it's a shameless rip off of Ghost World.

It disturbs me that no-one has mentioned something positive yet.....

Other than that?

Dinosaur comics, Achewood, Bob the Angry Flower, Concerned, Digger, Girl Genius, Girly, Irregular Webcomic, Overcompensating, PvP, Rob and Elliot, Sluggy Freelance, Starslip Crisis, Order of the Stick... to name a few.

I don't read S*P, but I don't think there is anyone else who doesn't.

:) The world needs more shameless rips of Ghost World, and the rest Daniel Clowes' work in general.
