Comics


I've decided to finally start reading some comics on the web.
Here are some of my faves.
Do you know other good ones?

This guy is a bit over the top, it might take some backreading to get his humor.

I'm glad Liberty Meadows made your list. Frank Cho is a great artist.

You might want to give Sinfest a try as well. http://www.sinfest.net/

I've always liked Calvin and Hobbes. Yes, Waterson retired, but I haven't read them all and have a bad enough memory that even the familiar ones can still give me a chuckle.

The only one on your list I read is Dilbert, and I don't consider that to be a comic so much as social commentary. There are plenty of times when I read that strip and rather than laugh said to myself "That's so true."

I've read Larson in the past, he was often funny but sometimes just a bit too weird for me (hard to imagine, I know). However, there is a very special place in my heart for another sadly deceased artist. Carl Giles was the daily cartoonist for the Daily Express here in the UK for more than 40 years. The true test of Giles' cartoons is the fact that even one's from the 1950's both are funny and ring true today. They have not dated, despite catching the essence of British daily life for so long. There are scores of books of his cartoons available, and I warmly recommend them to you.

I'll try it for a while, though I never really got the popularity of that strip.

Thanks to everybody for the tips so far!

So, Eolake, you dive into the world of web toons by reading paper strips on the web, hmm. Well, anyway, given those selections my best bets for you are: Ozy and Millie; Freefall; Absurd Notions. More of my favorites are listed here.
