Toasted Pixel -
Hackles may be over, but Drake's little brother Tod now has his
own online comic strip. It's nerdy, edgy, and super cool, so check
Aford - A comic
strip about a turtle and his woodland friends. Unpretentious, funny,
and very subtly trippy.
Technology - This is one of the better gamer comics out
there. Barry Smith's artwork is great, and his characters all
have likeable qualities.
Basics! - Super-smart kids take on the world. In a time
when so many comics glorify stupidity, it's nice to
see the geeks get the spotlight.
Cat and Girl - Every
class-conscious, introspective girl should have a pipe-smoking
cat of her own. Read this one while sipping wine, pinky extended.
Nightmare - Probably the most self-referential comic strip
in existence. With a scheming marketer as its main character,
it (literally) sells itself!
Exploding Dog - You
write the caption, he draws the picture. The simple art
possesses an odd charm and is strangely addictive. Also home of the
World Domination conspiracy. Evil!
Fight Cast or
Evade - A party of animals embarks on Dungeons and Dragons
adventures. It really doesn't get any geekier than
this! Fun stuff.
Funny Farm -
This comic differs from the
movie with the same name, in that it is funny,
and it doesn't actually take place on a farm.
Get With the
Program - This used to be another comic about computer games
and the gaming industry, but it's evolved into a sort of epic
sci-fi/fantasy story. Contains a grumpy penguin, which is always good.
Goats - A very
popular webcomic, and for good reason: It contains lots of beer
drinking and a satanic chicken! In his college days, Drake
played in a band with Phillip, one of the Goats guys (He can
sing like Michael Stipe! Sorta). Heh, small world.
Hound's Home - Teens,
high school angst, a droll monkey, a pointy-eared cat, oh my!
Poignant cultural commentary can be very cute indeed.
Kell - A carnivorous lady wolf is married to a big male rabbit.
Excellent social analysis of predator/herbivore dynamics
in a technology-obsessed culture. Hilarity ensues!
Ko Fight Club - You
never know what you're getting with this esoteric strip- board
games, Shakespeare, benches, it's all fair game. If comic strips
were beer, then this would be... one of those strange imported beers.
Newshounds - Did you
ever wish you could get the evening news from dogs and cats?
Of course you did, and here's your chance.
Paranoid Joe - The
delusional adventures of a tortured man. Paranoid Joe proves
that the mentally imbalanced can be funny!
The Parking Lot is Full -
Dark, demented comics that will keep you awake in terror at
night. Well, maybe that's an exaggeration, but they are pretty
twisted. If you're not easily offended, go have a look. Note:
the strip has officially ended, but the archives are still available.
Penny Arcade -
These guys have a permanent link on the front page of Slashdot, so
they certainly don't need our endorsement ;-). It's the
original gamer comic, featuring great art and belligerent humor.
Just plain funny stuff. Nothing is too wacky or unrealistic
for this cartoon. Features a comicly disturbing art style.
User Friendly -
It's very likely you already know about this one.
Wigu - Funny characters and
great art from the same artist who brought you
When I Grow Up.
