Would anyone object if we had a separate thread for webcomics?  I feel like they're a genre unto themselves.

Sounds like a good idea. Think people don't post comics in here much due to that reason, and having a seperate thread would be a good place to stumble onto new webcomics.

Maybe this is just crazy talk, but people who don't like it could always just ignore the Achewood postings instead of complaining about them and turning it into an argument.  tongue

Split.  I think it's fitting that the first page of our newest picture thread be arguments about what pictures should get posted instead of actual pictures.   awesome, for real

Don't worry Achewood has been really terrible (more than usual) for a while now to the point where even the diehards don't like it anymore.

I think it got to where even the artist didn't like it, as I believe it's been on 'hiatus' for a couple months now.

Good one, thanks for posting it.

This seems appropriate, as it's my birthday today. It's usually pretty good, but there can be off days.

This one is pretty much always good as well.

My first comic strip was about a bumbling Grade D batman and robin wannabe duo that ended up dead or in the hospital in every strip. It was a longer form than news strips, mine were full page (inspired by comics in Dragon magazine). Should have stuck with it, as with fine art, I never realized a lack of artistic talent wasn't a barrier to an art career.

Ogalf is one I like to forget exists for a while, so when I rediscover it I can read lots of archived material.  Updating only on sundays makes me a sad panda.

My first comic strip was about a bumbling Grade D batman and robin wannabe duo that ended up dead or in the hospital in every strip. It was a longer form than news strips, mine were full page (inspired by comics in Dragon magazine). Should have stuck with it, as with fine art, I never realized a lack of artistic talent wasn't a barrier to an art career.

If you don't have art skills, all you really need is the ability to update frequently and consistently.  (Which, honestly, is the hardest fucking part: Idea generation and cultivation.)   Some of the web comics I've followed over the last decade had fantastic art, but the artists couldn't be arsed to actually update so the audience faded fast.   Meanwhile, guys who couldn't draw for shit picked up good audiences because they were always on-time with regular updates.  

Anywho, some of my favorites right now are:
Least I Could Do
Looking For Group(Tho this one's begun to drag since the whole Legaria storyline came to be.
Menage a 3(Warning: Some have boobs and gay sex.. including that first comic link.)

In the "So terrible it's kinda fun to read" terrority, there's always Goblins! (aka. lumpy torture porn).

Go a handful of pages back to see how he statted a low level monster. He did it so terribly it will melt your brain if you have a passing knowledge of D&D.

Edit: Guess he removed it or moved it to a link or something. It was pretty hilariously bad. It was simultaneously ridiculously overpowered and laughably weak. It would either instantly wipe out a whole party or die in 1 round.

In the "great art but never updates" category, I've followed http://zebragirl.net since it was a wee baby comic.  http://dresdencodak.com is similar in that way.

www.gunnerkrigg.com is much more regular and is pretty excellent in every way these days.  John Allison, formerly of Scary Go Round and Giant Days, is one of my favorite internet people in general.  His site is www.scarygoround.com.

I have more... many more... maybe later.

Penny Arcade is the premiere example of the above, really shows how powerful being prolific and consistent can be.

I really like Giz's style.  Got into Eerie Cuties and Magick Chicks because of that strip.  (Though someone else does the art on Magick Chicks, she's just a writer, it's very similar style to hers.)

Hahahaha!  I'm really good at this!

Nedroid's Picture Diary is probably my favourite webcomic. The updates are a little sparse so it's one that gets checked every few months so there seems to be plenty to read.

Something Positive manages to be funny at times but the art isn't  particularly great and it relies on very NSFW humour. Regular updates mean lots of misses with the occasional hit. Ongoing storylines aren't everyone's cup of tea.

Edit: Link fixed. I'm abb code idiot not actually insane.

Fans! kept me interested in the plot for years and years... Also has very nice art. I'd suggest starting from the beginning.

Also, Girl Genius absolutely deserves a mention. (Although I guess that one started out as print)

Those are some I normally keep up with as well, good reads. Also, a few more:

Dominic Deagan Starts off as light humor based comic and develops well into a pretty goodfantasy story
Cyanide and Happiness Pure. Awesome.
Questionable Content Quite possibly my favorite web comic with a story line
Crimson Dark Pretty decent sci-fi
Errant Story Good fantasy based story. Little slow at times but overall it's been alright
Flip Side This one is just odd at times (NSFW at parts), and won't be for everyone

I'll start reading Does Not Play Well With Others today, don't know what to expect yet but it's from the same person who did Errant Story.
