Title: Weregeeks
URL: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
About: Geeks, nerds, goths, and fen, from the perspective of a poor mundane who never realized that he was a weregeek (dun dun dunnnn!) until somebody roped him into--but that would be telling. Also about love, secret societies, and soul-killing office jobs.
Audience: Geeks, nerds, goths, and fen who like to laugh at themselves.
Start Where? On the current day, then click back a few to get the beginning of the current story arc. Then go all the way back to the beginning to get the details about the series mythos and the relationships among the characters.

Title: Schlock Mercenary
URL: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
About: A far-future space-opera comedy-drama with human subspecies, genetically engineered gorillas and elephants, neurotic yet godlike AIs, bizarre fast food franchises, intrigue, corruption, galaxy-spanning wars, and next week's paycheck. All from the perspective of an iron-jawed but rather dim mercenary captain and his best sergeant, an ambisexual animated pile of silicates named Schlock.
Audience: Anybody who likes space opera with explosions.
Start Where? At the beginning, or you are going to be lost from the get-go. The art starts out extremely crude, but don't worry; it gets better.

Title: Punch an' Pie
URL: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
About: As the title blurb says, "Try a slice of life . . . then swallow." Growing up and getting on with life as a post-teenage working stiff. The bizarreness of ordinary life.
Audience: If you like romantic comedies or office sitcoms, but wish that the characters actually lived like people you know instead of in Giant Apartment TV Land, you might enjoy this.
Start Where? Current story arc. You should probably go back to the beginning, though, to get the backstory.

Seconding Punch an' Pie.

Adding:

Title: Sister Claire
URL: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
About: Take a very naive and young novice nun, add a buxom and flirty angel, a dash of martial arts, and a prophecy about the return of the Messiah. Then throw in a blender on frappe.
Audience: Like slapstick comedy? It's got it. Inside jokes and shout-outs? It's got that too. It even manages to maintain the humor while delving into a "the world is in peril" plot.
Start Where? At the beginning - otherwise what's happening now won't make sense. Be advised that the artist is currently slowing her output because of tendinitis.

Title: Fanboys
URL: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
About: A gag-a-day comic about two Nintendo fanboys on a couch, plus a girl that plays video games.
Audience: People that like video games, slaptick comedy, and inside jokes.
Start Where? Start here and ignore the old strips.

Or it would be if he ever updated on time. Seriously, what the hell is taking him?
I like Fanboys for two reasons: 1. The guy who writes and draws it was ripped apart by somethingawful and instead of throwing a massive shit fit like everyone else, he actually took their advice and greatly improved his comic. 2. The "gamer girl" actually has a personality that isn't "spunky tsundere that plays video games with the boys but always wins because if she lost it would be misogynistic". You know the type.

Here's a good one.

Seconding Kate Beaton/Hark a Vagrant by a factor of a thousand.

Title: Dr McNinja
URL: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
About: It's the adventures of a doctor who is also a ninja. His secretary is a gorilla.
Audience: It makes repeated comic book references, so it'd certainly appeal to comic book fans, the comedy varies from completely insane to biting wit.
Start Where? You could go back to the beginning of the current arc, but I advise going all the way back to the beginning.

Title: Dresden Codak
URL: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
About: A bunch of one-off strips about science and philosophy. One of the characters is Tiny Carl Jung. Plus the most gorgeous art out there.
Audience: Science geeks, philosophy geeks, history geeks, people who know more trivia than is good for them.
Start Where? Anywhere. There's a plot arc in the middle, but I'd honestly advise avoiding it. The one-shot strips are very good but the storyline is a bit weak in the section with a plot and it stars a total Mary Sue. WARNING: It hardly ever updates and you might need Wikipedia handy.

I've just started reading Skin Horse and I love it to bits. May be a bit silly for the tastes of some, but read this chunk of strippage and tell me you didn't crack a smile. Ooh! Warmy!

I'll second Gunnerkrigg Court.

I'll also toss in nominations for Metanoia and Kagerou. Both are variations on a fantasy theme, and both star extremely fucked up redheads.

Metanoia follows the life of Star Tyrian, introduced in his teenage years as a prostitute, at which point his boyfriend sold his soul to the devil and Star had to fight to get it back—with disastrous results—then skipping ahead about a decade to where he's trying to get out of the assassination business, only to get hired on by angels and stuck with a partner the spitting image of his old boyfriend. Star could be a total Marty Stu, but he's kept from it by his own acknowledgment of his flaws and others' calling him out on stupid shit that he does. Lots of guns, violence, and dark humor. The art is iffy to good, depending on who was drawing at the time, and updates are sporadic at best.

Kagerou is the story of Kano, who wakes up in a strange fantasy world and is hailed as the chosen champion of a goddess. Which kind of sucks for Kano, who's still not entirely sure he's not just having another psychotic episode, especially after he sides against the goddess in favor of her vessel—a lovely young woman who would just as soon live her own life, thank you very much. Gorgeous, psychedelic artwork, trippy characters, and the odd bout of zombies and/or hallucinatory episodes make the irregular updates worth waiting for.

How has nobody recced Something Positive yet? Pure genius.

Suicide For Hire is good if you don't mind furry comics - it doesn't make much of its furriness and it's not porn, the author's said he uses furries to disassociate the characters from any real-life racial groups because he's dealing with some very iffy subject matter. The author does have a tendency to go off on long rants about various social issues, but if you don't like those you can skip over them to get to the gore and gags.

Girl Genius is a recent addition to my webcomic favourites list. Pretty artwork, complicated steampunk technology, adorable monster things ...

...and this seven-page aside, which was apparently written just for us--and, coincidentally, by one of the writers of Skin Horse.

Eh, after a while Something Positive just got too bitter and angry for me, not to mention vicious. That's why I listed Weregeek as my first antidote; it's more taking the piss and less pissing in somebody's bloody eyesockets.

...how, exactly, does a webcomic that features the main character sending his ex a coat hanger as a baby shower gift in the first strip manage to become bitter, angry, and vicious?

No, seriously. Explain this to me. If anything, Something Positive has become more compassionate over the years. Characters like Mike and Monette have been allowed to grow and redeem themselves where they would've been left as just comic relief in other strips, he's used Fred to touch on the abuses of organized religion in a way I found honestly touching, and even Kharisma has a fuzzy blue thing looking after her in prison. The strip established its brand of humor, again, from the first strip. Why would you continue past such a clear warning if, like you proved in the bad webcomics page, you're an utter pussy about that sort of thing?

We get it, you prefer comics to be a warm, enlightening, and painfully unfunny experience. But don't pretend it's anything new and shocking. If you really want the emotional experience of watching someone "pissing into someone's bloody eyesockets", read Peanuts. No, better yet, watch the movie. At least Something Positive's viciousness is meant to entice a chuckle, not strip down the insides of your soul with a melon baller.

P.S. those opening links were not important enough to devote a fresh post to each. We have an edit button for a reason.

Besides, gory and/or deeply cynical comics are what got me through some hard days at work. Those and murder ballads. Mentally playing "Culling of the Fold" or the SFH death scenes helps a surprising amount when dealing with dumb co-workers.

:hmm:
Are you serious right now. Or are you trollan.

Suicide for Hire is literally one of the stupidest web comics online. It reeks of "hurrr hurrr! we're so hardcore!" 15 year old faux goth bravado that uses badly executed violence to cover up the fact that they can't write a story line to save their life. Unless the story line is "EVERYONE IS DUMB BUT ME NO ONE UNDERSTANDS ME" soapbox tirades. The only people who identify with this are high school attendees with an acne/bully problem and too much eyeliner.

There ARE edgy comics out there that aren't terrible,you just happen to like one that is.

There's a differences between not being part of a target audience and simply having abhorrent tastes. This comic is genuinely bad in it's own self-righteous way.

And I'm still baffled to see how anyone can call Girl Genius' artwork "good". Mediocre at best, cringe worthy at worst.

Are you A_Note_Chaotic under a different name?

Title: Misfile
URL: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
About: A filing error in Heaven causes young street racer Ash Upton to become female, and the very studious Emily MacArthur to lose the last two years of her life (just after getting accepted into Harvard no less). Enter Rumisiel, the Angel that screwed them, who's trying to earn his way back into Heaven to make things right and you've got Misfile. Car racing also plays a big part in the story, and of course, self-discovery for the main characters now that their lives have been completely changed. (Sorry if the description sucks, I'm posting this while tired.)
Start Where? At the beginning.

@Knight: I am entitled to read comics you don't like if I want to, by virtue of the fact that I am not you and nor am I seeking your approval. Why would anyone try to read a comic with a title like "Suicide For Hire" expecting depth, anyway? Sometimes I just wanna see splatter, and there's enough of that in it. And, for the record, I LIKE the Foglios' artwork.

I should probably bring up Ralph E Hayes' "Tales of the Questor", even though I don't read it anymore. I despise the man on a personal level and stopped reading his work because I disagree with just about every opinion he ever expressed, but I can still graciously admit he draws better comics than I can. (It's a very simplistic style, but it's still better than anything I can do because the characters look the same from panel to panel.)

And just to prove that I have found more offensive comics than Something Positive, I highly recommend "Sexy Losers" and "Ghastly's Ghastly Comic". Squick is fun!

It's one thing to enjoy mindless things for fun's sake an another to support a shitty webcomic with an asshole creator. WHAAAA MY GODBROTHER KILLED HIMSELF SO I DRAW A SUPPOSEDLY HUMOROUS COMIC WHERE I CAN KILL OFF PEOPLE THAT PISS ME OFF IN THE MEMORY OF MY BROTHER OH AND ANYONE WHO HAS ANY SORT OF MISFORTUNE BROUGHT UPON THEM TOTALLY DESERVES IT!

Just read this article and try to resist the urge to punch him in his selfish self-righteous face.

Edit: seriously, what a cunt.

Quote :
This was more in keeping with my feelings towards my godbrother's situation, and that no matter how temporarily overwhelming the situation may be, the path he chose is hands down the most selfish and most idiotic way to go. There are so many options open to these individuals, and yet they are so absorbed in their own self-pity and perceived misery that they cannot see the vast alternatives that lay before them, some of them blindingly obvious. But instead of relying on their logic and reasoning, people let the heat of their emotions get the better of them - and it's a problem for every aspect of society, not merely the suicidal.

Nice furry art on your dA btw.

Fucking classics. Although I heard that Uncle Ghastly went crazy and decided he was a woman or something.
