    Red Light Properties. Where most web comics are just “scanned” paper comics on your computer, Dan Goldman is actually working inside the browser. Making a comic book for the medium. And it’s also quite good. This is the type of book that print publishers _should_ be doing, but aren’t.

  2. says

    “Webcomics creators — post away!”

    Nice! If you insist!

    I’m the artist for Little Guardians – http://www.littleguardianscomic.com
    All-ages fantasy/adventure comic.
    We just launched last Friday.

    As for webcomics I read, a few on my mind would be:
    Cleopatra in Space by Mike Maihack http://www.cowshell.com/cleopatra/
    Cucumber Quest
    http://cucumber.gigidigi.com/
    Red’s Planet by Eddie Pittman
    http://www.redsplanet.com/comic/
    Power Nap by Maritza Campos and Bachan
    http://www.powernapcomic.com/

    All of them impress me with their art especially but they’re all great comics!
    -Lee

    Here are a couple, off the top of my head (in no particular order)

    • Bug
    • The K Chronicles
    • Hark! A Vagrant
    • Let Me Be Frank
    • This Modern World
    • Museum of Mistakes
    • Gabrielle Belle

    and if I could plug my own comic,
    The Blabbing Baboon: “My Daily Comic Journal”
    http://www.theblabbingbaboon.com/

  4. says

    Creator, not reader, here. I’m serializing a webcomic right now called Freedman. http://www.peterquach.com/Comics/Freedman/index.html

    It’s the story of a freed slave seeking revenge in the old West. It’s about what freedom really means, the experience of blacks immediately after the Civil War, and there’s guns and shooting at stuff, too. A new page every week. (Except this past week, when I was on vacation…)

  5. Patrick Scullin says

    Shameless plug for Super Siblings a comic for geeks and their kids that you’re sure to enjoy or my name ain’t Patrick Scullin. (but you don’t know my name cause you’re not reading it – but you should.)

    ..created “Captain Zap”:
    http://then.whatcomix.com/index.php?strip_id=1
    And coming up on CerebusTV (http://www.Cerebus.TV) July 8th: my comic “Captain Zap ” will be featured! And me and Dave Sim will be doing a “And Now I ask YOU one” leading up to it starting July 4th here:
    http://www.captzap.blogspot.com/
    Never heard of “CapZap” you say?
    Praised by:
    Jessica Abel, Donna Barr, Charles Brownstein, Howard Cruse, Will Eisner, Mary Fleener, Roberta Gregory, Dylan Horrocks, Nabiel Kanan, James Kochalka, Steve Laffler, Batton Lash, Stan Lee, Marcus Lusk, Jean Marc-Lofficier, Gary Spencer Millidge, Jeff Nicholson, Dave Sim, Chris Staros, James Sturm etc

  7. Schafe says

    Multiplex as mentioned above is good,

    Dr. McNinja, A Softer World, Looking for Group, Least I could Do, SMBC and Dinosaur Comics round off my regular read list.

  8. Six says

    There are plenty that I read on a regular basis, including:

    Least I Could Do: http://leasticoulddo.com/
    Looking For Group: http://www.lfgcomic.com/

    Dare Sensei(Doctor Who only if The Doctor were Female…and landed in Japan): http://comic.daresensei.net/index.php
    Alien Loves Predator: http://alienlovespredator.com/

    There are others that I read once in a while, but these are the ones I go to on a regular basis.

  9. says

    Shamelessly plugging myself: I write Split Lip (http://www.splitlipcomic.com), a horror anthology where I, in collaboration with artists from all over the world, have published 35 free horror comics–over 500 pages of scares.

    Other webcomics I like include A Softer World, Hark! A Vagrant, Destructor, The Hero Business, and others I’m no doubt forgetting.

  10. says

    I write both Matriculated, a slice-of-life college webcomic, and Another Videogame Webcomic over at DigitalPIMPonline.com.

    As for what I read… the Devil’s Panties, Girls With Slingshots, The Gutters, Penny Arcade, Glass Urchin… They’re just the ones I keep up with regularly. There are a bunch that I check in on from time to time.

  11. Theo Macdonald says

    Multiplex and I Fight Crime (blastosaurus.com) are both really good.

  12. says

    The Adventures of Dr. McNinja
    American Barbarian
    Awesome Hospital
    Bucko
    Double Fine Action Comics
    Fight!
    Ghost Bucket
    Hark! A Vagrant!
    Let’s Be Friends Again
    The Loneliest Astronauts
    The Magic Pen
    Nedroid
    The Rack
    Sin Titulo
    Three Word Phrase

  13. says

    I have a webcomic called Nathan Sorry which serializes a graphic novel that I am working on about a guy who should have been in the WTC on 9/11 but instead has gone on the run:

    http://www.richbarrett.com/nathansorry/

    As far as webcomics that I enjoy reading, I’ll second the first recommendation for Red Light Properties by Dan Goldman which is a really smart, funny, sophisticated read. More like a good Showtime or HBO show than the standard webcomic. http://redlightproperties.com/

    Ben Towle’s Oyster War is one of the most beautifully colored comics out there: http://oysterwar.tumblr.com/

    Also enjoy:
    Box Brown’s Everything Dies http://www.everythingdiescomic.com/
    and
    Christian Sager and EC Steiner’s Think of the Children
    http://comicsmakekidsevil.com/?p=88

  14. Keith B says

    My favorite webcomic is Erfworld: http://www.erfworld.com/

    But I read a bunch of great webcomics. Without links, here’s a list:

    The Abaddon
    The Abominable Charles Christopher
    The Adventures of Superhero Girl
    American Barbarian
    Awesome Hospital
    Bucko
    Destructor
    Ectopiary
    Ghost Throat
    Hi-Res Heroes
    Julia Wertz (Formerly Fart Party)
    [The Line]
    The Loneliest Astronauts
    Mimi and Eunice
    Max Overreacts
    The Princess Planet
    PVP
    Ratfist
    Sheldon
    Smooth N Natural
    Wizzywig
    Wondermark
    xkcd

  15. says

    Okay, trying for some comics not listed yet:

    Cleopatra in Spaaaace is exactly what you think it is, plus it has a talking cat as the straight man. Excellent all ages work that just completed its second chapter.

    Bug, which is similar to a old fashioned newspaper strip but actually funny. The titular bug talks about everything from his job fears to not wanting to be a vampire.

    My Cardboard Life is essentially a diorama every day, written with a razor British wit, usually at the expense of a Charlie Brown-like character named Colin. Lots of good visual puns, too.

    Those are just 3 off the top of my head!

  16. Kristi says

    Hijinksensue (hijinksensue.com)
    Girls with Slingshots (girlswithslingshots.com)
    Questionable Content (questionablecontent.net)
    xkcd (xkcd.com)
    Multiplex (multiplexcomic.com/)

    Those are the ones I check on a daily basis.

  17. says

    Girl Genius
    Something Positive
    SMBC
    Xkcd
    Shortpacked
    Dumbing of Age
    The Gutters

    A couple of other titles that have slipped my mind at the moment. They’re bookmarked at home…

  21. Johnny Q Doe says

    PS) Zebra Girl is good, but the irregular updates are a mild turn-off to a frequent follower.

  22. says

    My webcomic is called “Moon Freight 3,” a sci-fi/comedy strip that updates every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at http://moonfreight3.com.

    I also enjoy Schlock Mercenary, Evil Inc., Girls With Slingshots, Questionable Content, Weregeek, Remedial Comics, F Chords, Chainsawsuit, Starslip, Ralf the Destroyer, Stale Popcorn, Wondermark, Kiwi Blitz, World of Hurt, Joe Loves Crappy Movies, and Sticky Comics, among many others.

  26. says

    I’m the co-creator of Dressed For Success, a former black and white small press comic from the 90’s that took a break and is now back with new stories online. Two friends by chance try and make their way in the universe. Currently they have jobs as couriers and get involved in an Indiana Jones type adventure while making a delivery.

    Oops! Too many links seems to have gotten my post flagged. Here’s the unlinked version:

    Great idea for a post, Heidi!

    Some of my recent favorites include $5 Vampires, Destructor, and Red’s Planet.

    And, of course, I would be remiss if I neglected to mention SMASH (SmashComic.com), the all-ages comic I co-created with my brother.

  28. says

    I’m launching a new horror comedy webcomic July 8th.
    ‘Detective Warlock, Warlock Detective’!
    (detectivewarlock.com)

    Come to our NYC launch event for free beer and a cursed artifact raffle!

  29. says

    I see The Secret Knots has not been mentioned yet, which is a horrible, horrible crime.

    I’m going to use my whole post here just to recommend The Secret Knots. It’s consistently beautiful, philosophically interesting, and will mess with your brain the more you read it…

    http://www.thesecretknots.com/

    Oh, and… I do a webcomic as well and will be updating again soon. It’s a photocomic called Hypothesis — click my username to check it out. 8)

    Over at PLAYBACK:stl, we host two current webcomics…

    Pangaea by Kevin Wolf, an absurdist “funny animal” humor strip that won the 2008 “Best Comic Book” award from St. Louis’ Riverfront Times: http://www.playbackstl.com/graphic-ink/pangea

    Father Blank’s Roadside Confessional by the anonymous Father Blank (which is not me), which takes real anonymous confessions submitted by readers and turns them into a 12-panel comic strip: http://www.playbackstl.com/graphic-ink/father-blanks-roadside-confessional

    And since no one has mentioned it, I’d like to give some more local love to Tracy J. Butler’s Lackadaisy, one of the most gorgeously illustrated comics I’ve ever seen: http://www.lackadaisycats.com/

  33. Jonathon says

    Holiday Wars:
    http://www.holiday-wars.com/

    The Easter Bunny kills Santa and declares war on all the other holidays.

    At first I thought it was going to be a bad satire/parody but they play it straight and it’s turned into a fun fantasy story.

  39. technecat says

    Ah, most of my faves have been mentioned but I don’t see Ellie Connelly, La Machina Bellica, Tiny Kitten Teeth, Para-ten or Shadoweyes out there yet. I double the recommendation on Cucumber Quest, Bucko and anything by Kate Beaton.

  40. says

    I’ve been reading and love The Gutters (the-gutters.com), which parodies current comibc book story arcs and general comic book news 3 times a week.

  41. Troy Wilson says

    Self-promotion: PANELS FOR PRIMATES

    Also: Cleopatra in Spaaaaace, Hark! A Vagrant, and Up All Night.

  42. says

    I’m the creator of MeatShield, a D&D inspired fantasy webcomic featuring Dhur, barbarian warrior and the fiercest knitter in the five kingdoms; Jaine, half-elf bard and the brains of the outfit, Ch’p, halfling monk and pastry chef extraordinaire and Becky Sourbottom, dwarven war maiden and caber-tossing champion!

    I read the following:
    PVP
    Sheldon
    Atland
    Order of the Stick
    The Legend of Bill
    The Non-Adventures of Wonderella
    Girls with Slingshots
    Evil Inc.

    Questionable Content
    Shadowbinders

  43. Abhay says

    I try to keep up on (but am bad about) Toby’s comic Kursk, Kate Beaton; Octopus Pie and Bad Machinery, but I’m not regular with those; and anything Harvey James does. I’ve gotten very badly behind on a lot of the good ones though (Sin Titulo, if that’s still a thing), and I’ve been meaning to make time for Bucko for a long time as that’s well-reviewed and I like work from both creators…

    Oh, and once in a while Cucumber Quest– that’s a kid thing, I think, but I like to look at the art (http://cucumber.gigidigi.com/) on that one– that one comes on my tumblr (http://gigifritter.tumblr.com/). And I really like SuperMutant Magic Academy (http://mutantmagic.com/) which is another one that comes on my tumblr when it updates– it’s a one-page gag thing. I’d look at more if they came on my tumblr feed, but either they don’t or I’m too dumb to figure out how to work that…

  44. says

    I write and draw “Rikonius’ Untitled Webcomic Relaunch” (http://lordhighrikonian.com/comix/default.aspx)

    I read a lot of webcomics:
    Choked Comics (http://www.chokedcomics.com/)

    Fantastic thread — I’ve temporarily eased restrictions on the number of links in a comment so hopefully no more will be caught in the filter.

  46. says

    I am also the co-author of a LoZ parody comic… if anyone is interested, check it out at http://www.artofkoden.com

    One should remember to leave anything resembling logic behind while reading this. My co-author and I don’t take it too seriously so neither should our readers!!

  47. deanna davis says

    Above all, Hijinks Ensue by Joel Watson is my favorite web comic. But from time to time, I also read Multiplex and Girls with Slingshots

  48. says

    I’d heartily recommend Zahra’s Paradise: “Set in the aftermath of Iran’s fraudulent elections of 2009, Zahra’s Paradise is the fictional story of the search for Mehdi, a young protestor who has disappeared in the Islamic Republic’s gulags.”

    The writing is informed, emotional, and authentic, and the artwork is simply beautiful.

    Print editions in multiple languages will be coming out in September, with First Second doing the English edition.

  49. says

    @technecat: thank you so much for reading Shadoweyes!!! much appreciated. :)

    i like serialized kind of webcomics rather than gag strips, which are fine but not usually my cup of tea, so here’s a few that i read that i don’t believe have been mentioned:
    Sister Claire by Elena Barbarich: http://www.sisterclaire.com
    Meaty Yogurt by Megan Rose Gedris: http://rosalarian.com/meatyyogurt/
    Sacred Heart by Liz Suburbia: http://lizsuburbia.corkyberlin.com/

    Subnormality
    Chainsawsuit
    Bad Machinery

  51. says

    I’m Jackson Ferrell; I create Sketch Comedy.

    One of my favorite strips is Kris Straub’s F Chords, about a pair of struggling musicians and the compromises they have to make just to keep their dream alive. It’s unbelievably funny and relatable.

    Also, as far as art quality, humor, and general storytelling are concerned, David Willis is absolutely knocking it out of the park with Dumbing of Age. IMHO his best work to date.

    This thread is an awesome idea–thanks for opening it up!

  52. says

    Hoo, boy. Here we go.
    The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal (EK Weaver)

  53. says

    Schlock Mercenary, Shortpacked, Errant Story, Does not play well with others, Looking For Group, Dumbing of Age, MegaTokyo, ErfWorld, Girl Genius, El Goonish Shive, Waspi Square and Olympic Dames (which I write).

    And then there’s my webcomic over at Flim Flam Radio but it’s nowhere near a regular update schedule yet. Sigh.

  55. says

    I write and host a comic called Blaster Nation. We’d love to have more readers and critique, because we’re still kind of in a learning process with the whole thing.

    I have an extensive list of over 50 webcomics bookmarked that I attempt to follow on and off. But at the end of the day, these are all the ones I never forget and consider to be worth mentioning. Not in any real order, but the top 3 listed ARE my personal top 3.

  61. priellan says

    Let’s see, I read…

    Red String
    The Dreamland Chronicles
    Johnny Wander
    Everblue
    The Meek
    Gunnerkrigg Court
    Sheldon
    Earthsong
    Basic Instructions
    Three Panel Soul
    Drawn Butter (recipe comics!)
    Kiwi Blitz
    Lackadaisy
    Cucumber Quest
    Modus Operandi
    Romantically Apocalyptic
    The System
    Strays

  62. priellan says

    I’ve also read Rice Boy, which is currently finished. And I also read Shrub Monkeys. And I could continue for a while, probably.

  63. 0alexander says

    Homestuck would have to be my number 1 – hussie plays with the medium incessantly and brilliantly, in addition to having fun characters and dialogues.
    Penny Arcade comes in a close second – even though I am not a gamer by any stretch, those two are just so good at writing and humour that I love the comic.
    Dr McNinja, another favorite and always very funny along with
    xkcd, etc. Mainstream stuff.
    Dropping off the radar more, there’s also:
    OOTS, Darths and Droids, and Goblins, all functionally DnD comics and all very well done
    Awkward Zombie, another gaming comic that I can enjoy because it’s well written and funny faces are drawn with regularity,
    Spacetrawler is a scifi comic which is very very good,
    vattu, by Evan Dahm is another comic from him taking place on his constructed world of Overside, and is fun and decompressed
    amazing super powers has offbeat, unique humour that never fails to elicit a chuckle
    gunnerkrigg court is fascinating and intricate, with an expansive myth arc and pervasive mystery. Also fun and funny!
    Three Panel Soul, by the people who also created Machall (which was one of my favorites, though I discovered it post-humously), makes interesting a funny haiku out of their comics which are dedicated to one single rule: Only 3 panels.

  64. KatiaRai says

    I fully support covering more webcomics!

    Questionable Content
    Least I Could Do

  65. Peter Persy says

    The EVERYWHERE Anthology published on ACT-I-VATE written by Chris Miskiewicz and drawn by various artists is a great read. It’s hysterical and scary.

  66. says

    I read way too many to list in a comment, but my two favorites are MegaTokyo and JohnnyWander (http://http://megatokyo.com/ and http://www.johnnywander.com/). The former is has an amazing deep story and great art working together to keep me hooked despite relatively slow update schedule. The later tends to stick towards the humorous end of the scale, but they’ve experimented with a few brief story arcs to tremendous effect.

    I would also suggest AppleGeeks (http://applegeeks.com/), but it hasn’t updated in quite sometime, and I understand it was on its way to conclusion anyway. It starts off quirky and fun, but it gets pretty intense story-wise for a while, and there’s one portion of that, “AppleGeeks: Exodus” is one of the most powerful pieces of narrative I’ve ever seen online.

  67. likefunbutnot says

    Chris Onstead’s Achewood speaks (spoke?) to me like nothing else. I hope he comes back soon.

  68. says

    I create West of Bathurst (http://www.westofbathurst.com). It is technically a slice-of-life comic, but it gets weirder as it progresses.

    Most of the comics I read have been covered above. However, I’ll also mention Lit Brick, which I recently discovered (http://www.litbrick.com). The creator has taken on the task of covering the entire Norton Anthology of English Literature in a series of four-panel comics. He’s up to the middle of the seventeenth century. I wish him well.

  69. says

    …and last but certainly not least…
    Modest Medusa

    Also my daughter’s comic, which, being a proud mom, I will mention: Love in Idleness

  71. says

    I write and draw a mess of comics at http://catnose.com/ and http://velvetrasput.info/ and I have several webcomics I adore:

    Heidi,
    Great idea! But over 140 comments in under eight hours shows just how many regular readers of The Beat are webcomics readers and/or creators.

    I love the latest stuff you’ve been doing about webcomics in contrast to the DC-NU, but I think this might be a suggestion to add a regular webcomics review to the other features at the site. As more and more cartoonists turn to the web for the freedom of expression they can’t always find in print publishing it seems there’s a pulse here that The Beat shouldn’t only monitor, but shout out about. A very healthy pulse people should know more about.
    Thanks,
    -R

  77. says

    I will hold myself down to my top 5 favorites:

    SINFEST (hard to describe but easy to love; a very lovely & whimsical look at spiritual values…with bikini devil girls thrown in…)
    http://www.sinfest.net/

    SAVE APATHEA (serialized gn about a small town

  78. says

    Hello! I write KEEPER, a sports-crime thriller which has gotten some attention from people like Ian Rankin, Phil Hester and Jacen Burrows! Drawn by Jeff Simpson, lettered by Jim Campbell! http://keeper-comic.com

    I am also but one of many creators at HADRON COLLIDERSCOPE, a sci-fi anthology comic which is on a bit of a break at the moment but we’ll be back stronger than ever! http://www.hadroncolliderscope.com

    Everyone should also read:
    – World of Hurt
    – Awesome Hospital
    – God Hates Astronauts

  84. Erin says

    Black Adventures (a Pokemon fancomic)
    Hark! A Vagrant
    Homestuck (or really all of MS Paint Adventures but Homestuck is the only one currently running)
    Oglaf
    The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal
    The Super-Gay Adventures of Ross Boston
    Todd Allison & the Petunia Violet

    honorable mention to Mahou Shounen Fight! only because I’m not reading it right now but I keep thinking about it and that probably means I’ll pick it back up again soon.

  85. says

    I read Jack Cayless’ ‘Chimneyspeak,’ Vas Littlecrow’s ‘Rasputin Barxotka’ and ‘Dissident Priest’ and Bodil Bodilson’s ‘Oglaf.’ Uh. Jeph Jacques ‘Questionable Content,’ Warren Ellis’ ‘FreakAngels.’ ‘Order of the Stick’ by Richard Burlew. Um. Just started reading ‘Walking on Broken Glass.’

    So yeah, a lot of webcomics.

  86. says

    AFFECTED is a long book-in-progress about the disintegration of urban America, the Iraq War, and how dangerous sex is in Los Angeles

    http://affectedcomic.blogspot.com/2011/05/blog-post_9848.html

    “Flash Roughs/In A Hole: Jul-Aug 2010” is a deconstructed superhero comic that chrinicles an adventure of the Flash while explaining why it never came to fruition as a finished piece of work

    http://mattseneca.blogspot.com/2011/04/flash-roughsin-hole-jul-aug-2010.html

  87. says

    Sinfest is probably one of my favorite comics, but also on my list is Dr. McNinja, Sam & Fuzzy, Three Panel Soul, Least I Could Do, Johnny Wander, and Boxer Hockey among others.

    And actually I just stared drawing my own comic again, Aloof. http://www.oleetkustudios.net/aloof.html

    It looks ragtag up to this point, but that’s because I did maybe 30 comics in 6 years. Now I’m looking to get a new page every Tuesday, and a single panel comic every Thursday (Not-Aloof, also on the site).

  88. says

    Yay, I’m at the bottom of the list!

    I write and draw a weekly serialized long-form graphic novel called Rose Madder. It’s a sorta-kinda deconstructionist romance comic, for those who like those kinds of things:

    http://www.rose-madder.com

    Or click on my name if I screwed up on the links in messages thing.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who made it down the thread this far and checks out my webcomic.

  93. GreenLantern9999 says

    I love me some Weapon Brown at http://www.whatisdeepfried.com the comic takes place in the world of the funny papers after the Apocalypse! It starts the once Block head who could never quite kick that football, Chuck, who rides around this miserable desolate place on his motor cycle with his trusty dos sidekick Snoop. It is not for the faint of heart, it is pretty hard core and is not shy about sex, violence, nudity, and killing off some beloved comic strip characters in… unique ways. but if you can look past all that it is a really amazing love letter to old comic strips and a commentary on where they have gone. Did I mention Chuck’s Bionic Arm? Awesome.

  94. David T.G. Riches says

    Not to be confusing but how many people visit on a regular basis and how many people save up and visit a month or mores worth of strips at a time?

    Currently I visit about five strips on a regular basis and the others are all when I get around to it I will dip through the archives.

    Well, I author and draw two webcomics. Melvin’s Domination and The Fall: Divinity over at my site: http://www.punkinstudios.com. So obviously I gotta pimp those out there. But also, I enjoy reading the following web based comics.

    Gin and Comics, by Ryan Fisher, over at http://www.ginandcomics.com/. It’s a buddy comic but with genuine humor in it.

    220 comments. Holy crap sticks!

    Most all of my fave webcomics have closed up shop.

    Fart Party is gone but Julia Wertz still posts something almost every week. Not really webcomics but still ha ha funny. http://juliawertz.com/

    Hark a Vagrant is knee slappin’ funny. But everyone knows that. I kinda don’t think of it as a webcomic though. http://harkavagrant.com/

    I still read American Elf every day. Still funny. http://www.americanelf.com

    And, while we are on the subject, I just say to all you webcomicsers- if I can’t read your webcomic in my blog reader, then I probably won’t. Make sure the little RSS icon button thing is easy for geriatric old dudes like me to see.

  97. says

    Awesome post! I’m the artist for Walking on Broken Glass, a supernatural office dramedy about murder. :P We’re sort of half-print and half-web, in that it’s designed page by page with both in mind and we are just starting issue 3 on Sunday. Anyway, come check us out!

    I read webcomics daily but all the ones I follow have been mentioned here at least twice already, so I’ll just mention the two I’m involved with creating. Both are sci-fi continuing-adventure series, updated 5 days weekly:

    ESCAPE FROM TERRA

    I write two webcomics. BORDER CROSSINGS is a dark marine fantasy where a salvage submarine’s strange crew must redefine freedom for their drowned world. You can read it here:
    http://www.thelastisland.com/

    THINK OF THE CHILDREN is 24-page, one-shot, satirical horror comic about the events leading to the original Comics Code Authority. You can read it here:

    I really like drawnbutter.tumblr.com by L. Nichols. Recipe comics, gorgeously drawn!

    I wish I could recommend more comics but at over 200 comments, I think all my favorites and buddies are covered.

    OH! I used to do a comic at littlegardencomics.com but I killed that site by accident so I guess I’m going to update the next season of Little Garden at letsgoayo.com. Computers, how do they work??

    ginandcomics.com
    zorphbertandfred.com
    lifeon66.com
    Kimecan.com
    dynagirlonline.com

    American Elf James Kochalka, Vermont’s comics laureate. If you are not familiar with his whimsical take on the world, let me know! I have all his books. Is he the American Trondheim? http://www.americanelf.com/

    “Supernatural Law” by Batton Lash currently in reruns, but still a chuckle twice weekly. Also available in print. http://www.webcomicsnation.com/supernaturallaw/slaw/series.php?view=current

    The Mad Tea Party at http://www.jonathondalton.com/ is a really good science fiction story.

    I’m the creative director of a scifi space opera with the best art you’ve ever seen in a webcomic:

    CarpeChaos.com

    We tell short stories, bouncing around within the same universe. If you’re a fan of scifi, you’ll probably gobble us up. We have over 200 pages posted, go read them now.

  106. says

    I’m the writer, colorist (and sometimes artist) for Cosmic Hellcat Adventures. http://cosmichellcats.com

    It’s a manga, sci-fi parody about alien catgirl ninjas in space. The blog also features photos of professional models in cosplay as the characters from the strip.

    We’d love to know what other people think of it.

    254 comments. A record!

    Note: some of your posts are going into the spam filter but I’m cleaning it out every few hours.

    Some of these comics I’ve read and even covered here before, but I definitely have a lot of reading to do, and I think I’m going to enjoy it.

  110. says

    Wow, is this a Beat record for comments? It looks like there is a need for more webcomic coverage!

    Kate Beaton is a no-brainer! Hark! A Vagrant is one of the best…

    I love Save Apathea by MK Reed and Johathon Hill
    Freewheel by Liz Baillie
    Vattu/Riceboy/Order of Tales by Evan Dahm

    and I’ll cast my shameless plug into the ocean of self-promotion;

    Symptom of the Universe at symptomcomics.com is where I write ’em and draws ’em.

  111. says

    Oh, my question was answered before it was posed…

    but I forgot the gorgeous Dicebox by Jenn Manley Lee!

  112. says

    I co-created Death Boy with Dan Butcher, so I’ll shamelessly plug that – http://www.deathboycomic.co.uk

    Other stuff I read:

    Jake The Evil Hare

    And far too many others to mention one by one, so I’ll throw a shout-out to the Independent Comics Alliance members on Twitter:

    Is this where we shamelessly plug our webcomic? I got a memo…

    In His Likeness – inhislikeness.com

    Minimalistic talking dots. Tada.

    Oh, and you should read The System. (systemcomic.com) and Hello With Cheese (hellowithcheese.com)

  114. says

    This is a massive list! A lot of these I’ve never heard of before. What a great idea for a post!

    Right now I’m digging on:
    Hark! A Vagrant

    OH! And if I make a shameless self promoting suggestion, check out my Lovecraftian sibling rivalry comic ELDRITCH!, which you can find at http://www.heartshapedskull.com/ELDRITCH

    Then check out Serenity Rose. Same brilliant writer.

    Well… it seems shameless plugs are all the rage here… I’ll get to mine in a minute.
    First off, I regularly check out The Gutters and Neko The Kitty… mostly ’cause I recently drew guest strips for them both. I’ll check out pretty much any webcomic though… I’m new to the scene and like to check out what folks are up to.
    All right… shameless plug time: I draw Remedy and write/draw Wonder Weenies over at http://remedialcomics.com Remedy is about a Gulf War vet that now fights crime along with his super powered cat named Ash (and is written by Rob Tracy). Wonder Weenies is about a group of fast food workers that gained super powers after exposure to irradiated hot dogs. Remedy updates M-W-F and Wonder Weenies Tu-Th (that’s five comics a week! hoo-boy am I a busy guy) Hope ya check ’em out and keep reading those webcomics… I know I will.

  117. J. Szarabajka says

    As a follower and lover of a good many of the comics mentioned thus far, I have to say I’m shocked to see so few mentions of

    Red Light Properties

    which is so far past the rest of the pack there’s no point measuring. How the Walking Dead is a mediocre AMC show and RLP is still hiding in webcomic obscurity is beyond me. The pitch is killer, the conceit rich, and the characters so warm and three-dimensional that their decisions sometimes affect my mood. For days. If you’re not reading this comic, you’re missing out on some of the best art online.

    Nathan Sorry is also pretty promising.

  118. says

    Every few months, I post my continually evolving list in a blog post on the site of my own webcomic. Here’s the one I posted in May. I’ve added some and taken some off since then, but it’s still a solid list:

    http://eatthebabies.com/?p=281

    Bad Machinery & Octopus Pie are probably my favorites these days, tho normally I don’t like long form.

  119. says

    Hi! Here’s my list:

    Wulffmorgenthaler
    Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal
    Questionable Content
    Xkcd
    Cyanide&Happiness
    Spiked Math

    There’s a group comic called CROSSOVERKILL I help with that’s great fun…an interdimensional grouping of superheroes fighting a group that is crossdimensional doppelgangers of each other. That’s at http://www.drunkduck.com/Crossoverkill/index.php

    The heroes include Captain Perfect of BAD GUY HIGH at http://www.drunkduck.com/Bad_Guy_High/

    ENERGIZE at http://www.drunkduck.com/Energize/

    FUSION of http://www.drunkduck.com/Essay_Bee_Comics_Presents_Fusion/

    HOODOO of MAGALLEN at http://magellanverse.com/

    MAJESTIC KNIGHT of http://majesticknightcomic.com/

    My own MINDMISTRESS at http://mindmistress.comicgenesis.com/

    And SPARKLING GENERATION VALKYRIE YUUKI at http://www.sgvy.com/

    It’s sort of like CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, except we’re having FUN with it. We round-robin the art chores, so it varies from say, the Red Death’s excellent art, to Essaybee’s Bruce Timmish-inspired art to my photoreferenced stuff to Xmung’s excellent unique art. If you don’t like the art, just wait. You’ll encounter something you will like…updated usually on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

  124. Pishposh555 says

    Well, I have a webcomic I’ve been doing called Tom Boy Tara, found at http://www.tomboytara.com which is a comic strip about a 19 year old who hasn’t changed into a stereotypical girl in her adulthood and dealing with college life with her total opposite of a roommate and her best friend who is a guy. Fictional but mainly deals with observations seen every day about gender roles and how people think they should act.

  125. says

    I’m partial to:

    Eddie Pittman’s Red’s Planet

    Steve Ogden’s Moon-Town

    Tom Dell’aringa’s Marooned

    Mike Maihack’s Cleopatra in Spaaaace

    The Bolton brother’s Smash Comic

    Dani Jone’s My Sister the Freak

    And now for the plug: I work on this one here: http://mightymartianstudios.com

    It’s been rebooted and is in the prologue stage at the moment.

    Anyway, I’m having fun with it.

  126. says

    I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back in the future. Cheers
