* ''Single Asian Female'': The dialogue is so badly written that it would be painful to read even if it ''wasn't'' overwhelmingly racist. The author stated that this was ''intentional'', and was probably trying to portray racism ''against'' East Asians... but instead exposed himself as racist against non-Asians through ethnocentrism ("Asians should marry other Asians! [[MightyWhiteyAndMellowYellow White men are creepy and all have an Asian fetish!]]"). Reading the comic makes it seem far less like an {{Anvilicious}} anti-racism screed gone wrong, and more like a racist complaining that he can't get a date because "all the good Asian sisters are dating white guys". The way the "married a white guy" friend of the main character refers to Asian guys as "abusive, sexist losers" seems an awful lot like [[RealLifeWritesThePlot the author had been on the receiving end of that comment himself]]. Unsurprisingly, the webcomic was taken down. Encyclopedia Dramatica has an article on it, with many of the strips contained. Their analysis, when not blatantly false, is not particularly exaggerated.

* The now thankfully defunct ''Webcomic/ShreddedMoose'' is/was, along with being irredeemably offensive, devoid of humor or any point behind its [[HeManWomanHater misogyny]]. The artwork is somewhat competent, though an obvious rip-off of ''Webcomic/PennyArcade''[='s=] style and often glaringly unrealistic where female anatomy is concerned. This comic was a TwoGamersOnACouch comic about two fratboy gamers. A backwards hat wearing Totally Radical "Alpha Male" named Brew, who represented the writer, and, representing the artist, Trip, a youngster fratboy who looked up to Brew. Together they were Mary Sue protagonists to the extreme. The average comic strip was always about either Brew one upping their strawman targets with a talking point followed by violence, or having sex with multiple women, and all the women in the series were either bimbos, Orcs (if feminists), or Lesbians (if they did not want to have sex with Brew). This made Brew an aggressively unlikable Jerkass character who epitomizes the worst of the Fratire genre without any of its redeeming qualities. The most redeeming thing to be said about the comic is that it ended many years ago and the creator has since renounced and disowned it.

* ''[[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/THe_FReCKLeD_FINGeR/ THe FReCKLeD FINGeR]]'' has a very good, professional art style. Too bad it's aggressively unfunny, needlessly offensive, and as spiteful as humanly possible. The bald-faced contempt for all that feels joy is clear in the writing, making every single strip a soul-crushing experience in and of itself. It's often described as "''Webcomic/CyanideAndHappiness'' if it took itself ''dead seriously''".



* ''The Loco Bandito'', by none other than Creator/MikeMatei. Downright racist to extreme levels, the strips also make almost no attempt at humor (one, in particular, has the punchline be the titular Bandito ejaculating on a penny arcade, while another has him expose his testicles and threaten the host of ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' after he loses). They also contain graphically NSFW imagery (which is why there is no link here) and egregious language. The only mildly twinge-inducing strip sees the Bandito spray various bodily fluids over ethnic stereotypes, then [[BoomerangBigot realise he himself is an ethnic stereotype...]] [[{{Squick}} and defecate on]] [[MoodWhiplash his own face]], but even that is ruined by the disgusting nature of it all. Apparently, Matei tried to get the comics published, but "no one had the balls" to put this horrifically racist garbage on the shelves.

* ''[[http://badwebcomicswiki.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Hathor_the_Cow_Goddess Hathor the Cow Goddess]]'' revolves around real-life naturalist feminist Heather Cushman-Dowdee in a cow mask and bottle-nipple hat preaching her views on child-rearing, healthcare, and public as well as long-term breastfeeding. This alone wouldn't necessarily make it a bad webcomic, but the comic only shows tolerance for [[AuthorTract Hathor's own views]] and [[{{Demonization}} demonizes anyone]] that advocates modern medicine, formula feeding, or sends their kids to school as an abusive parent. The author, essentially a hippie helicopter mom crossed with a Bizarro liberal [[ComicBook/ChickTracts Jack Chick]], has earned the enmity of many an amateur Egyptologist for re-purposing a cool goddess for her deranged views.
** There's a parody comic in which she accidentally suffocates her infant son by letting him sleep in bed with her. Rumor has it that the parody was made by her older son, whom she promptly disowned.
** The comic's dead, replaced by a link to ''[[http://www.mamaiscomic.com/ Mama Is...]]'', which is just as bad.

* ''Webcomic/BillyTheHeretic'' is widely considered to be ''the'' worst webcomic on the internet. It's an allegedly-autobiographical work about a young boy who was adopted by a "rich international Jewish" family. The writing is identical to, if not dumber than, what you'd find sifting through [[ThoseWackyNazis Stormfront]] (quite fitting, as the webpage bears a link to it). The artwork is spectacularly awful there's not a shred of color anywhere, backgrounds are never anything beyond blank white stretches, and every character is poorly drawn. Special mention goes to the characters, all of whom are [[StrawCharacter overblown caricatures or stereotypes]]. And the sad thing is, the comic makes it clear [[DesignatedHero the reader is supposed to]] ''[[DesignatedHero like]]'' [[DesignatedHero Billy,]] but makes no effort to portray him as anything but a spoiled brat with extremist political views. In Website/{{Cracked}}'s [[http://www.cracked.com/article_17607_5-circles-baffling-web-comic-hell.html 5 Circles of Baffling Webcomic Hell]], this one gets a special mention at the bottom of the pit.

* '''Webcomic/TheEasyBreather''' was written as an AuthorTract against smoking. Fair enough, but the execution falls totally flat. First of all, the art is done entirely in an ancient 3D program called Poser, thus resulting in a great deal of UncannyValley. The writing is just as bad, as the anti-smoking material is constantly sidelined in favor of having the characters get naked for no reason (supposedly because the author is a naturist). Even when the comic remembers that it's about non-smoking, it results in weird things such as the main protagonist having special breath powers due to being a nonsmoker, paper-thin villains forcing others to smoke, and infodumps on the hazards of smoking that come off more as a PSA than a story. ''Website/{{Cracked}}'' placed it #10 on their [[http://www.cracked.com/article_17607_the-5-circles-baffling-web-comic-hell.html The 5 Circles of Baffling Web Comic Hell]] article, and [[http://badwebcomicswiki.shoutwiki.com/wiki/The_Easy_Breather Bad Webcomics Wiki]] has more to say.
