Webcomics you should read

Reading webcomics is almost always an enjoyable experience. Sit down with a good webcomic, and you might not stand up again for a few hours. One of the great things about the Internet is that anyone can distribute their work without much difficulty at all, resulting in an abundance of self-published webcomics.

My two favorite webcomics of all time are John Campbell’s pictures for sad children and Jeph Jacques’ Questionable Content. Questionable Content is one of the best “slice-of-life” comics online, and pictures for sad children… well, it’s special. Both of them are nothing short of glorious art.

I also love a softer world, which is a popular webcomic about… a softer world — just check it out, okay?

Nothing Better and Dumbing of Age are two great webcomics about college, the former more dramatic and the latter more comedic.

For the gaming crowd, there is Order of the Stick, Erfworld, and Ctrl-Alt-Del, for RPG gamers, strategy gamers, and video gamers respectively.

XKCD has appealed to geeks, nerds, scientists, mathematicians, and losers like me for years now. Don’t pass this one up.

Real Life is perhaps the slice-of-life comic, created by Greg Dean. It was my first webcomic, the second being OotS. I loved it years ago, but admit that I haven’t read it in a long time.

Other webcomics of note include Something Positive, Octopus Pie, Sam and Fuzzy, Patches, Wasted Talent, and Least I Could Do. Of course, this is by no means a comprehensive list of the Internet’s vast webcomic offerings.

Which of these comics is your favorite? Have I missed one? Leave a comment!

EDIT: Can’t believe I forgot Full Frontal NerdityNodwick, and Dork Tower! Three great gaming webcomics to match the three listed above. I haven’t read PS283, but I have heard good things about it.
