Posts I've Made
10 June 2012 - 09:30 PMThis is my list, and I'll extrapolate on the ones I haven't seen up on this topic.
I categorize these by update schedule. The first one is called "Whenever the author feels pretty."
Awkward Zombie- going slow these days, probably exhausted all the easy jokes. The archives are amusing enough to read through every now and then, and will give you a laugh the fifth time you read through as surely as the first.
Nerf This- Highly amusing because it only gets serious to make room for more jokes.
Caribbean Blue- Was amusing at first but it drags on for far too long without doing anything and it updates far too infrequently, I think they do it by donations.
Hatefarm- has humorous nudity. I can't believe the stuff they come up with, they had me laughing for days when I first read it. Always laugh myself into tears when I reread it.
Las Lindas- A delightful little comic, updates by donations but it's good enough to get enough donated every 5-6 days to keep a steady flow of comics going
Slightly Damned- Author is going through 2-3 month "rough patch" which makes me sigh, but the art is beautiful and the story works pretty good at being original and amusing
There's only one comic on my list that officially updates once every two weeks.
Dreamkeepers Prelude webcomic- This is up there with my favorites. Unbelievable read, and the actual dreamkeepers books are well worth the $2 they ask for it. Unbelievable art, and such entertaining characters, worth checking in once a week because they give exclusive sketches from their next graphic novel in the series.
Category three is once a week.
Twokinds- meh, first webcomic and I used to absolutely love it because I didn't know any better ones. It's still good enough to keep caught up on, but not what the stridently passionate fans would have you think of it.
My Life With Fel- A strange furry comic I found recently that has some very odd artwork, some amusing characters, and some interesting plots. The artistic style changes almost every page, it seems to be more an artist's experiment webcomic, and it's worth watching for now.
Planes of Eldlor- One of the most memorable webcomic starts I've seen so far. Dragons. Me gusta. Artwork is fantastic.
Miamaska- Fascinatingly strange little story, basically just started. The page's head image says "You have dreamed too well, o wise archdreamer." Basically the story of a girl who loses her sense of self in the world and as a result gets sucked into another by some strange power. It was on hiatus for the longest time but it seems to have gotten back to it.
Earthsong Saga- Haven't seen this one on this list. Perhaps i didn't look hard enough. Oh well. Story of a planet that all planets put their accidental creations on. Light and fascinating.
Blue Milk Special- Star Wars original trilogy parody, written by starwars geeks who know a great deal of the extended universe and find ways to make almost every single strip amusing/informative. They've gotten halfway through empire strikes back with something around 1300 strips, and I don't see them slowing down.
Category 4: updated twice weekly
Full Frontal Nerdity- Geek humor! Laughs are in order! Some inside jokes but mostly the characters are enough to laugh at. If you are a nerdy sort... you will crack a rib. I know I did.
Selkie- Story of a strange little orphan girl who gets adopted by someone who appreciates the adoption process, being a recipient of it himself. Artwork is... well... improving. Mostly I come back because the story is good and surprisingly original for this sort of thing, and also because Selkie herself is highly amusing.
Original Life- It's funny to see what everyone's complaining about. Also, when you can ignore his porn advertisement over to the side it can be pretty funny. Not right now, though. He's going through some storytelling crap.
Eerie Cuties- about a pair of vampire sisters. One's the cool big sister, the other the little sister who drinks, not blood, but chocolate, because she was born on Easter night. It goes on to introduce a highly amusing cast of good-natured monster children at school. In all, pretty good. It has a branch comic that's linked to it but I never really got into that one.
BCB is on top of this list. Says something don't it? One of my favorites.
Girl Genius- It's got delightful insanity and mad-science. I enjoy the insane.
Freefall- Most of the comics on this list I read because they've got good art AND good story AND good characters. This one's characters and story is so good that the rushed/simple art style can be quite easily ignored. Set on a new colony world far from earth, it tells a tale of a stowaway troublemaking alien squid who's somehow "acquired" a spaceship, the squid-captain's slow robot minion friend, and an engineer by the name of Flo who is an experimental organic AI called a Bowman's wolf. Both the robot and Flo are by similar means compelled to obey all human orders... only Sam the space-squid isn't human. This comic is amazing in it's clarity and depth. Slightly wordy at times, might have to keep up the dictionary.com tab to use once in a while, but I can't believe how clear the characters are. This IS my favorite webcomic, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good sci-fi story and a good laugh.
Spinnerette- A webcomic that harkens back to the good old days of comicbook superheroes. Highly amusing and riveting. It's about a girl who sprouts six arms one day as a result of her work in a university laboratory.
Menage a 3- Characters are very funny, can't stop coming back.
Sam and Fuzzy- This has been updating three days a week since sometime in 2002 and has been going ever since. The early strips are nothing but one long running series of joke strips about a taxi driver and a talking teddy bear, but it eventually picks up into something of a storyline. And then it gets good. And then it gets hilarious. And then the art picks up very nicely. The author's even got his page set up to where you can skip to where it started to get good.
Flipside- About a split-personality female jester. Sometimes the storyline can get a LITTLE DISTRACTED, and you can forget that the original character ever existed once they get going into the main quest. But it's good nevertheless. Good artwork, and the character Maytag is fascinating.
I have more but they're mostly just something to whittle away the idle hours of my life, nothing worth sharing.
Except this one.
Updates every day, though at what time of day is irregular. Art not meant to be pretty. Yet another Fantasy Gamer Comic is hilarious, has a good sized archive, and is quite hilarious and diverse.
That's all, folks.
