I think the fact that they have to explain each panel with a several-hundred word article just makes the whole thing more depressing. The whole point of comics is that they should speak for themselves. They don't need a separate readers guide to explain what the fuck is going on; it's a bloody comic after all, it's not opera.

All the Things!  http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.ca/

Looks like Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half is coming out with a book. I am very excited, ten new "bits" and eight reruns. Been one of my favorites for some time. Poignant, hilarious, and really badly drawn.

It's up for pre-order on Amazon right now.

So apparently PA ran some type of show to find a new comic artist and she won and got her own webcomic and for the love of fucking God don't waste any seconds of your life reading it since Jesus tap dancing Christ what the fuck.

This has been a Public Service Announcement.

Correctly; this webcomic artist won the PA thing to get marquee position on PA as well as shitty temp job with them.

All the artists were bad by the way; every one of them made retarded slice-of-life hipster comic shit.

The guy who does the Sci-ence comic was in it, don't know why he was bumped out (didn't follow the contest), but his regular comic doesn't fall into that category.

If you had a great, fresh idea for a webcomic and a strong command of your artistic skills, would you go anywhere near that contest? Or them? No. The contest requirements were practically "desperate also-ran" or "naive, sweetly trusting noob".

Then I apologise.  Yes, you're entirely right.  It's utter chum for the fan-sharks.

I wouldn't mind, but her comic isn't even good.  It is, in fact, really, really bad.

Hyperbole and a Half is partly awesome funny and partly utter desolate horror.

I've still not seen Clinical Depression described half as well by anyone else, but it was a hard read for a former sufferer.

I think it's a really useful (as well as bleakly funny) description of how all the things that people say to a depressed person sound to them. I also suspect that reading the comic would be a more useful tool for self-diagnosis than any number of clinical descriptions.

I only just learned about it a few months ago, myself.

When my clinically-depressed ex-girlfriend was telling me how excited she was about the book.  Put some nice perspective on things.

And now for something lighter: http://thepunchlineismachismo.com/

It's nothing amazing but on the other hand it's not terrible which immediately places it above 90% of video-game-related webcomics. Plot is "There's a temp agency where badass video game characters go to work when they're not in games and a random slacker turns up with his pet pokemon and begs for a job" but it's more of an excuse for jokes than anything else.

I don't know why it took me three attempts* to get through an archive binge on Gunnerkrigg Court but I managed it now. Good story.

(*The first one stalled about two chapters in, the second about six or seven. The third attempt was the one that got its hooks in)

I'm too lazy to search back beyond this page. In the last week or so I've been hooked on:

Stand Still, Stay Silent - Scandinavian post-apocalyptic fantasy. Intriguing world setup, tons of "landscape porn."

Namesake - A rabbit hole of fairy tales and family bonding.

Rise from your grave!

I've really been enjoying Erfworld and Dr. McNinja lately.

Erfworld is a comic/novel about a wargamer who gets sucked into a fantasy wargame.  Like in the old D&D cartoon or something.  It's great.

Dr. McNinja is just plain ridiculous and also great.



But mostly I wanted to bump this thread so that people with webcomics to share do it here instead of by pasting the entire archive into one of the picture threads.   Ohhhhh, I see.

Dr. McNinja is a ridiculously over the top walking cliche and yet manages to feel fresh and inventive.  And the guy who writes/draws it is a fucking pro.  Both in the sense of drawing really well and in the sense of almost never missing a day, despite having a lot of other projects going on.

I'm glad you mentioned this.  For some reason I thought Erfworld had ended and quit reading it after book 1.

Happened to check in on Penny Arcade and apparently they are off on some weird tangent that makes no sense at all, again.  http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2015/07/20/grace-part-one
