I didn't mention Girl Genius because it's been mentioned previously.. but in "The Webcomics" thread, I guess that was kind of foolish. Yes, great strip so consider that a 2nd from me.   The illustrator should also be well-known by those who had Dragon magazine back in the early 80s.  It's Phil Foglio who did, "What's New with Phil & Dixie"

FANS I /was/ a fan off until the author stopped writing it a few years back and put it behind a pay wall because he'd gotten a TV gig and thought he was too big a deal to just give his work away for free.   Plus the whole idea got really wacked as this collection of geeks turned into the world's most awesome international/ interdimensional super-spies.   Ric just isn't that smart or believalbe as the super-genius tactician he's portrayed as when that all starts up.  awesome, for real

I'm pretty sure half or more of the illustration in GG is done by Kaja Foglio actually. (Her style is pretty similar to his in any case.)

She does the final detailing and coloring, I believe.  Since she's been in and out of the hospital a few times over the last couple of months he's put up non-colored & detailed pages when she wasn't able to work.

Something I stumbled over recently was Gunnerkrigg Court (www.gunnerkrigg.com), which I have really enjoyed.  The art goes through some pretty heavy evolution during the first 5-10 chapters, and I think it improves a bunch.  It's a long format story and benefits from starting at the beginning.

I really enjoyed Narbonic (www.narbonic.com), another fine Mad-Science themed comic, though Shaenon's artwork is really really rough especially in the first year or two.  I happened upon it midway through, went back and picked up the beginning later, and followed until the end.  She did a fantastic job of doing a 4 panel daily with a joke or two in every strip that also is a 6 year long-form comic (broken into a bunch of major stories).  Currently it's re-running as the "director's cut" with commentary, but you can read the whole original archive front to back if you want.  The commentary does contain story spoilers at times.

Doh, completely missed your post somehow!

GC reminds me a lot of Sandman in that it borrows existing myths and mythical figures and shapes them into its own version for its world.  Lots of subtle hints and foreshadowing along the way, and the world, while strange in many ways, seems to have its own internal consistency. 

+1 to John Allison.  I enjoyed ScaryGoRound massively and BrokenMachinery has been good stuff.  It's especially fun watching him play with different art styles over the years, going from all-digital to hand drawn and back several times, adjusting along the way.  Also, John writes fantastic dialogue.   I just love the way his characters talk to each other.

DresdenCodak is perhaps the pinnacle of just utterly amazing art (especially his insane landscapes) and even more insane (ly slow) update rate.

Evan Dahm delivers the epic long-form tales in Rice Boy (http://www.rice-boy.com/see/), Order of Tales (http://www.rice-boy.com/order/), and Vattu (http://www.rice-boy.com/vattu/).  I didn't find OoT quite as engaging as Rice Boy, but Vattu is taking things back to pretty epic levels of story telling and awesome color work:

Though frequently disturbing, Oglaf is awesome.
One of the best cartoon artists I've ever seen. The stylization is amazing.

The content... ACK!

My wife happened to wander by as I was perusing Oglaf, I thought it was awesome, she just thinks I am even more disturbed than she originally estimated.

It's not a real webcomic until you start clicking on the archive buttons and an hour disappears.

Exactly. Someone mentioned Something Awful above - I haven't looked at it in almost a year, because every time I do I end up wasting two hours of what should have been "work" time.

Another forum I read linked to one I'd never heard of before today - The Oatmeal (language is somewhat NSFW).  This one and this one too entertained me, sifting through more now.

An old favorite of mine that runs on and off is FLEM.  Not safe for work, significant others, or anyone with any taste whatsoever - but J. Grant does understand Texas heat and humidity (and apparently now tech support as well).   awesome, for real

I don't think they had to straw man the actual beliefs and philosophies of christians to make it funny. Especially as it invalidates it as something I can send to taunt actual christians.

My mother decided a couple weeks ago to have the Jesus talk with me. It didn't go well. For her. "I wish I could debate things, you seem to think of everything and I just can't keep up." No kidding.

Yep, it's why I don't bring up the subject. I feel really bad that she's going to die thinking I'm abandoning her for eternity and will suffer forever in fire despite leading a good life. Thanks, religion!

To lighten it up, for fun try mentally exchanging the word 'Faith' for 'Bacon' in your next discussion or debate about theology.

I like telling people to rephrase without using the word "should".  That pisses off some people quite a bit.

I think you've discovered the Oatmeal.  Apparently that's a large chunk of what it's about.

I'm an atheist, but I hate calling myself an atheist because it means I have to deal with people who think I'm throwing my lack of religion in their face. I'd much rather pretend that whole sphere of society doesn't exist at all.
