----
* ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'' takes Star Wars and tells the story a little differently via screencaps and added-in text. The premise is that Star Wars as we know it never existed, and the entire story is someone's TabletopRPG campaign. The characters are amazing, the rewriting of the story is fantastic, and the dialogue and situations are hilarious. It's the only place you'll ever see the words "Jar-Jar, you're a genius!" said ''completely in context.''
** Seconded! I don't know how he did it, but he manages to make the plot make more sense than it ever did in the movies, and anything that he can't make sense of is lampshaded within an inch of its life.
*** This is third'd to all infinity. The writing is just fantastically well done (most likely because, unlike most webcomics, it's written by multiple authors), the characterization is amazingly thorough, and the plot actually manages to flow together extremely well, considering that you have to assume that almost everything that wasn't in the Star Wars Canon was just made up on the spot.
* ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'' and ''Series/{{Reaper}}'' just genius in WebComic and TV form respectively. If a [[FanFiction crossover fic]] doesn't appear on fanfiction.net soon I may be forced to write one myself.
** The first thing I do after shutting off my alarm every weekday morning is open up my laptop and read the latest ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}''--except that one day that I stayed up so late, it was already up before I went to sleep.
* How good is ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''? Worth waking up at 3 am every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday just to catch the newest page right after the site updates, that's how good it is. I love the characters, I love the effortless shifts in tone the comic pulls off, and I love the way the story stays entertaining while juggling a million unanswered questions.
** Also worth checking when you are backpacking in Mexico (the only of around 20 Webcomics I read that I kept checking).
** Yes, yes, yes. Thank goodness for whoever {{Entry Pimp}}s it out, or I would have never discovered it.
** Ditto; in fact, I only checked out ''Gunnerkrigg Court'' after reading this entry. It's now one of my favorite webcomics for being absorbing and easy to read when it ''should'' have been incomprehensible and head-scratching. Proof that Entry Pimping really ''does'' work!
** Oh ''yes''. It has this great air of mystery surrounding the events, while still being straightfoward enough to retain interest, and all the characters are great to read (except Jones).
** Everything about this comic is wonderful. Except Boxbot, who is [[ButtMonkey terrible.]]
* On the Internet or off of it, there is little I've seen that rivals the scope, the imagination, the vision, and the all-out gaslamp awesomeness of Webcomic/GirlGenius.
** ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' is everything good about characterization. No matter whether you love them or hate them, the entire cast, from heroes to villains to bit characters, is complicated enough and human enough (even the monsters!) to be absolutely ''fascinating''.
*** At the very least, I defy you to show me ANYTHING with better art. Anything at all (except museums).
**** The Phoenix Requiem, see below.
*** Dat's right! De monsterz iz so handsome and schmott, how could you not be fascinated by dem? Girl Genius is one of those comics I recommend to all of my friends, with its witty writing, beautiful art, and awesome characters. Of course, that applies to just about everything the Foglios create. Even XXXenophile, the pornographic works they made, have such entertaining characters and amusing writing to make them worth reading for reasons beyond the obvious.
* ''ZebraGirl'' is just amazing. The art is all hand-drawn and unbelievably detailed, the characters are great, the plot is mysterious and exciting... the only bad thing I have to say is that the update schedule sucks.
* What do you get when you take ''{{Slayers}}'', add a dash of ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'', throw it in the oven with some FetishFuel, and marinade it in 90's anime and game influences? You get TL Welker's ''{{Heartcore}}'', this troper's favorite webcomic!
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' is one of the rare webcomics that's done CerebusSyndrome ''right'', still remaining funny even with its MythArc in full swing. By strip 300, you'll have forgotten that the characters are stick figures because their personalities are too rounded to belong to stick figures.
** Seriously, what other webcomic... or indeed, what other ''comic''... can make a slew of meta/D&D/FourthWall jokes and then ''successfully'' pull off a genuinely heart-wrenching death scene... ''on the same page?''
** Even better (if possible) is [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0496.html "Wanna play blocks with me?"]] That scene is a TearJerker and a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming at the same time.
** No other 'verse has gotten me so involved with the characters. Not Literature/HarryPotter, not Literature/TheLordOfTheRings, nothing. If you can make me cry like a baby over the fate of a STICK FIGURE, quake in fear when another major character seems on the verge of death, and then punch the air in exultation at her ally's massive awesomeness two strips later, you know you're a fantastic storyteller.
** Agreed. No other webcomic manages to pull off such a mix of comedy and drama with such success... and in spite of a thoroughly ridiculous art style too!
** I actually think the art style is adorable. OOTS combines a gripping plot, lovable characters, some serious moral questions, geeky gamer humor, and endlessly quotable dialogue full of a boatload of wordplay and double entendre. And the way it constantly lampshades, subverts, parodies, deconstructs, and otherwise plays with tropes is delightfully clever. I also enjoy that it has strong female characters without falling prey to RealWomenNeverWearDresses, and that it averts HumansAreWhite. (Heck, it's the only webcomic I know of with a black protagonist other than a long-defunct one written by two friends of mine.)
* ''RiceBoy'' is funny, weird, touching, and absolutely beautiful. And TOE is a badass.
** Amen to that. It's really a shame that more people don't know about it...
* ''Webcomic/KidRadd'' is the most beautiful, touching and amazing webcomic I have ever read - I would definitely call it the greatest webcomic ever.
* ThePhoenixRequiem might be one of the better webcomics on the... er... web. Its characters are interesting and real, its art excellent, its story compelling. [[http://requiem.seraph-inn.com/ Check it out.]]
* ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja''. Recipe: Mix one part adrenaline and one part nitrous oxide, put it in a can, and serve it piping hot Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Now in color!
** This strip manages to [[SerialEscalation escalate]] with ''every'' new arc. Every one. The sheer imagination and CrazyAwesome are just jaw-dropping,and the almost-but-not-quite straight-faced attitude of the characters to the MundaneFantastic is unique.
** This comic is proof positive that your plot can make almost no sense and still be fucking brilliant.
** Not only that, just when you think it can not get anymore ridiculous, something happens that causes your head to explode with the pure awesomeness of it. And just when you think that's the limit, IT HAPPENS AGAIN.
* ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' is great in general, but [[http://xkcd.com/505/ "A Bunch Of Rocks"]] is just incredible.
** That strip is so awesome, it hurts.
*** I edited that comic for the memorial of a friend... it's the sort of afterlife he would have wanted. And he was a big xkcd fan.
*** Seconded. [[http://xkcd.com/254/ Here's]] the evidence.
** Its first CrowningMomentOfAwesome has to be the conclusion of the Barrel arc [[http://xkcd.com/1/]][[http://xkcd.com/11/]][[http://xkcd.com/20/]][[http://xkcd.com/22/]][[http://xkcd.com/25/]][[http://xkcd.com/31/]]. Even its AltText agrees.
** As if you needed more proof, check out the [[http://xkcd.com/657/ Movie Narrative Charts]], and then [[http://xkcd.com/681/ Gravity Wells]].
*** And it even gave a ShoutOut to [[http://xkcd.com/609/ us...]]
** XKCD really deserves to be gushed over. It's not just that they know their stuff. They know much more than just their stuff, and they know how to make it all into a great comic. Reading the archive leads to instance over instance of "I wish I had thought of that", heartwarming, and just plain respect for the comic.
*** Amen.
*** I'm constantly exclaiming "That totally describes my LIFE!" when reading xkcd.
* There's a reason why ''PennyArcade'' is one of the longest lasting webcomics so far and one of the most succesful, spanning a charity, an annual expo and a videogame... a videogame (loosely) based on a gaming webcomic!
** I love ''Penny Arcade'' so much. I love their humor and their artwork, but the #1 thing I love about it is Gabe. I always love seeing what he is up to next, he's so funny (and cute too).
* I cannot sing the praises of ''[[http://harkavagrant.com Hark! A Vagrant]]'' enough. Kate Beaton can do quick sketches and amazing paintings and they'll all be fantastic. She's so funny and you actually LEARN something historical from them (well okay maybe not the Napoleon ones).
* ''[[http://comics.shipsinker.com The Ten Doctors]]'' is one of the most brilliant pieces of ''Series/DoctorWho'' fanfiction I have ever seen. It features absolutely ''every'' [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters Doctor, companion, and major villain]] since the series began -- and still manages to give each one something to do, ''and'' deliver a rousing story. It's like watching a juggler keep twenty balls in the air at once.
* ''[[http://www.twolumps.net/ Two Lumps]]'' is like ''Garfield,'' only about five hundred times funnier.
* ''[[http://www.kiwisbybeat.com/minus.html minus]]'' is pure fun and imagination distilled into single pages. It is funny, beautiful, entertaining and sometimes even terrifying. It is made of creativity and originality and win and everyone should read it.
** YES. YES. YES!
* ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' is a hilarious trip down a[[strike:n un]]necessarily-drawn-out memory lane for those who have played ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI''.
** ... and for everyone who hasn't, it's just a darkly hilarious sprite comic with brilliant writing.
** I almost can't express how much I love this comic. I only discovered it a few months ago, by which time it was effectively over. However, this allowed me to read nine years worth of strips in a matter of weeks, getting the whole story at once. It is truly the most hilarious thing I've ever read, from strip number 1 to 1225.
* ''[[http://www.sinfest.net/index.php Sinfest]]'' is awesome. Political and religious and JustForFun cartoons done ''right.'' [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=2945 Exhibit A]]. [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=3001 Exhibit B.]] [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=3022 Exhibit C.]]
** My own gushing consists of Sinfest being the first webcomic to make me -care- about the characters. I actually -cared- whenever someone had a problem and I truly hoped things would end up well!
* ''{{Megatokyo}}'', KudzuPlot and all, can still make me laugh, cry, and feel shocked and ashamed at its tale of people stumbling towards relationships in an atmosphere of AbsurdityAscendant. I ''want'' these made-up people to find love and support whilst I giggle and gasp at the [[HumongousMecha mecha]] run by the division of the police that facilitates disasters run by someone whose wife [[spoiler:and daughter]] is a MagicalGirl and his daughter keeps a zombified Godzilla and harbours a crush on the protagonist whose sorta-girlfriend/idol was saved by an enigmatic ElegantGothicLolita magical girl from being blown up by the black-ops division of Sony... look, just read it. Keep clear of the BrokenBase, though.
** Seconded; I own all the books and am waiting impatiently for my first Megatokyo T-shirt to arrive. No other webcomic has absorbed me so deeply in its world; it's hilarious, touching, confusing, thought-provoking and ultimately very, very satisfying.
*** [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming It arrived.]]
* ''[[http://pbfcomics.com/ The Perry Bible Fellowship]]'' is the finest [[strike:Dead Baby]] Comedy known to mankind.
* Webcomic/DresdenCodak is perhaps the closest I will ever come to Franchise/GhostInTheShell and Anime/SerialExperimentsLain in the world of webcomics. The writing is brilliant, filled with [[ViewersAreGeniuses deep]] meaning and brilliant, half {{dada}} half [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic meaningful]] quotes and so many GeniusBonus and anti- LowReferancePools it's like a seventh irony powered secular heaven I refuse to acknowledge. not only does it have RichardPFeynmann, it has Richard P. Feynmann playing bongo drums.
* Webcomic/{{Girly}} is made of [[{{Firefly}} shiny]]. It has some very developed plots. It has the awesome [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters characters]], with great CharacterDevelopment. It PlayedWithTropes like it was made to do it. The FanService feels justified. Even the lesbian relationship is treated more like a relationship than a niche lesbian relationship.
** And don't get me started on the prequel CuteWendy. [[TemptingFate Just don't]].
* ''{{Terinu}}'' is a bloody brilliant, full page space opera, with well rounded characters, intrigue and friggin gorgeous art that's worthy of Marvel or DC. All done part-time by a nurse living down in Melbourne, Australia, a nation that is Made of Awesome.
* [[http://sodiumeyes.com/ Sodium Eyes]] has great artwork, humorous writing, and good characters.
* ''Webcomic/OzyAndMillie,'' of course. With ten years of archives to [[ArchiveBinge binge on]], even if it's over, there's always something you missed, or forgot about and can come back and laugh at-- and it's fun to watch the art and characters evolve. Fun and genuinely likeable (and often quotable! "The universe is both vast and wide. Why, then, do you wear pants in which you could smuggle Volkswagens?") characters, social satire, and wit all combine for a comic that I suspect will never get old.
* [[http://www.undefined.net/1/0/ One Over Zero]] is gloriously funny and well-characterized [[BreakingTheFourthWall three-walled]] enjoyment.
* ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'' is non-human centered, smart, consistently very funny, and has a deep story. Takes quite a few hours to read the entire archive, but it's certainly worth it.
* ''IrregularWebcomic'' is still the best thing on the internet in my opinion. Some days it's incredibly funny, some days incredibly clever, and some days it just teaches me astrophysics, but the things it does with it's own stories and the fact that, through nothing but humor, it has created a world that's just ''awesome'' are enough to keep me coming back to the website every single day genuinely excited to see the next strip.
** IrregularWebcomic is like reading ten awesome comics at the same time. Mindblowing.
* I spent the better portion of my afternoon making a TVTropes page for ''GoodbyeChains'', an underrated web comic, because I'm hopelessly addicted to it. True, there isn't much of a grand story (yet for all I know), but the clever writing and character interacts (especially between the two main characters) are a delight. Plus it has gay. Yes, I am a YaoiFangirl. Though it doesn't fall into the stereotypical gay territory and the story doesn't focus on that aspect.
** And I (a non YaoiFangirl!) am eternally grateful-- after discovering the comic on here, I went on an ArchiveBinge and now look forward to GoodbyeChains updating more than most of my TV shows (and for me, that's saying something).
** GoodbyeChains is awesome in every sense I can think of. And thank YOU TvTropes, for introducing me to it!
* [[http://alwaysraininghere.com/ Always Raining Here]] has amazing art, great characters, and looks like the creators and going to have a good, long, and interesting story.
* [[http://www.lr-comic.com The Comic Adventures of Left & Right]] is oddly compelling and I'm at a loss to describe how. What really makes it stand out is how conducive it is to [[http://www.chickensnack.com/randomlr/ randomization]]. At least 75% of the randomizer's output is gold.
* ''Head Trip''. Funny, kickass and with really good art, this is how you do LifeEmbellished, dammit! Oh, and it's ultimate CrowningMomentOfAwesome is that Literature/{{Twilight}} parody. Yes, [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20080505.html that one.]] I have it printed out and stuck on my wall.
* ''[[http://lackadaisycats.com/index.php Lackadaisy]]'' - Astonishing, vibrant art? Check. RoaringTwenties vibe in every page? Check. A varied and sumptuously intriguing cast of characters? Check. A winning [[TricksterArchetype trickster hero]]? Check. Who could ask for anything more?
** Also, if you are not a furry yet, you will be after reading it. * ahem*
* I am really surprised at all the flame that ''CtrlAltDel'' gets around here. It is funny in a way that all gamers (the intended demographic) can enjoy, yet still maintains some edge of seriousness that makes you want to care about the characters. During an ArchiveBinge when I got to the infamous miscarriage scene, apparently I was the only one to think it was a TearJerker.
** You be not alone! I was genuinely shocked with the miscarriage strip when I first saw it.
* LookingForGroup. Just...[[OmnicidalManiac Richard]].
* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary''. Consistently funny and well plotted and manages the potentially tricky task of making space mercenaries be likable, funny, a lot more competent than their enemies give them credit for, and badass. Particularly Schlock who is one of the finest protagonists out there. Also the other major mercenary figures, of which there are gratifyingly quite a few, as would be plausible for such a company. The art quality has also increased over time to actually pretty darn good as well and with its never missing a day all this adds up to one fabulous webcomic.
** Agreed. I lost soooo much sleep ArchiveBinging ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary''...it was just that good, though!
* [[http://wondermark.com Wondermark]] may reserve more than half of its real estate for text, but the punchline always pays off. Skeletons are funny. Skeletons with top hats are over the top.
* ''{{Concerned}}'' is a ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' fan comic which is quite possibly the funniest thing ever. Gordon Frohman ([[RunningGag No,]] ''[[RunningGag Frohman]]'') is a whole new kind of stupid, as in he stays funny, the characterisation is still spot on, and yet the DownerEnding is still a TearJerker. Its over now, [[http://hlcomic.com/index.php?date=2006-03-03 but it was great while it lasted.]]
** Seconded. Frohman, you and your lethally hilarious antics will be remembered. I will continue to stubbornly consider the events of that comic canon, even in the face of continuity.
** There is a reason male_7, the model of Gordon Frohman, is so frequently used in GMod comedies. The comic has inspired a lot of great comedy in the GMod community. It is to the point where there is some WMG that Valve has snuck some Concerned nods in [=HL2=]: Ep.2
* ''Webcomic/{{Sins}}''. It's hilarious, it has an interesting plot and a fascinating universe...the characters are great, and the art is simple but still awesome. Definitely a more obscure comic that SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove.
* ProblemSleuth was an absolutely amazing epic story mixed with wonderful random comedy, made even more random by the method in which the comic was made. Reading through the archives, it's hard to believe that it wasn't planned. The current [[MSPaintAdventures MS Paint Adventure]], Homestuck, is shaping up to be just as wonderful.
** ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has all but surpassed its predecessor by this point, thanks to its improved art style, use of flash segments, and wonderful music. It also helps that despite all the surreal humor it utilizes, the characters are still very relatable, and their conflicts and victories manage to elicit genuine emotional responses from the reader.
** It may well be noted that, unlike most webcomics which are just comics that happen to be on the Internet, MSPA takes advantage of its format. Animated sequences and ''[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome music]]'' are mainstays of the story by now. Add to that the CrazyAwesome fandom and there's a winner. (Oh, and genfic isn't a redheaded stepchild here!)
*** For all of its animation and music, perhaps the single most impressive achievement of Homestuck is making walls of text both enjoyable and central to character development.
** I am firmly convinced that the strip [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7Owq7SFehU Descend]] is the most perfect video ever. The combination of humor, epic, and sadness is absolutely absurd, and the fact that the music is so awesome certainly helps. I have watched it at least fifty times, and am not going to stop anytime soon.
** And I am now convinced that even ''Descend'' has been surpassed, with the truly fantastic [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/cascade.php?s=6&p=6009 Cascade.]] Thirteen minutes of pure, amazing, awesome, with even ''better'' music than before. Andrew just keeps topping himself.
*** All the flashes are awesome, really. [[RunningGag All of them.]]
** Seconded and thirded and fourthed ALL THE WAY TO INFINITY. Homestuck is without a doubt one of the greatest things I have ever read. I can barely find anything to complain about, and I criticize fiction for a hobby. I love the way it can be funny, dramatic, tragic and awesome all at once, I love the way the plot is insanely complex but can still be followed, I love the way so many things seem insane and random but always manage to makes sense, I love the limitless layers of hidden plot elements, symbolism and patterns, I LOVE EVERYTHING.
* Webcomic/DinosaurComics is both ridiculously clever and SoBadItsGood.
* No DaisyOwl? [[http://www.daisyowl.com/ For shame]].
* I am surprised that ''{{Newshounds}}'' is so obscure in this wiki. Thomas K. Dye's dialogue is clever and biting without being gratuitously cynical, his characters are awesome and the new format has truly shown how talented at writing Dye is.
* ''[[http://tf2.skyscrapersoup.com/?p=3 Cuanta Vida]]'' (link leads to first page) is probably the most well-known fanwork of the ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' fandom, and it's really not hard to see why. Its individual ''characters'' are even more distinct than the [=TF2=] classes, the story is well-constructed, and by the time you get to the end (so far), you just want more. Oh, and {{Slash}} fans? HoYay abounds, but ''even non-Slash fans'' can enjoy this.
** Seconded. ''Cuanta Vida'' is one of the best [=TF2=] fanfics ever written. Everything about it is great. I read it from beginning to end in just one sitting, it is truly wonderful.
* The merely whacky first strips of ''Webcomic/EmergencyExit'' were fun, but when the whackiness starts to form a coheisive plot, along with a greatly improved art style, awsomeness ensues.
* PicturesOfYou is my favourite Webcomic (sharing the podest with Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt). The way Gibson Twist protrays the relationsips of the group is just unbelivably natural. Go read it!
** Heartily seconded. The characters are funny, tragic, and so, so true.
* ''[[http://www.docrat.com.au/ Doc Rat]]'' is a personal favorite right here. It may get [[HurricaneofPuns a bit punny]], and may get a little preachy about video game addiction and smoking hazards, but it has defined characters, delightful dialog, and more than a few [[CrowningMomentofFunny Crowning Moments of Funny]] and (shockingly) [[CrowningMomentofHeartwarming Crowning Moments of Heartwarming]]. It doesn't take long to blaze through at the moment of writing, but you will find it charming and more than a little endearing.
* Anything made by Sandra K. Fuhr really; BoyMeetsBoy is webcomic classic, and the subsequent sequels aren't bad either
* Webcomic/SluggyFreelance. I was introduced to the webcomic a few months ago and have only recently finished the epic archive, and never once did the humour wear thin. It managed to pull off CerebusSyndrome remarkably well, and the serious moments thrown into the usually silly, happy plot are extremely poignant and occasionally heartbreaking.
** A webcomic where just about ''anything'' can happen (so long as it's PG-13) that runs the gamut of every genre imaginable without ever losing the humor and endearing characters at its core. Plus the thing's so frickin' huge that, by the time you finish your ArchiveTrawl, you'll be ready to go back and re-read your old favorites again.
* ''[[http://www.no4thwall.com No Fourth Wall to Break]]''. Like ''OneOverZero'' without the CerebusSyndrome. Cut down in the prime of life by ScheduleSlip. Ah, well. Things could always be worse. Like, what if you were covered in bees? That'd be pretty bad.
* There is no other webcomic like Webcomic/{{Paranatural}}. It's one of the funniest and best drawn comics around, in print or online, and there isn't even one strip that doesnt evoke multiple belly laughs. Not to mention that the creator, Zack Morrison is always up for a chat in the comment box, and is always exceedingly nice and funny.
* ''Webcomic/SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal'' and ''Webcomic/CyanideAndHappiness''. Yes, they're [[BlackComedy Dead Baby Comedies]]. Yes, they both [[CrossesTheLineTwice cross the line]] ''[[CrossesTheLineTwice at least]]'' [[CrossesTheLineTwice twice per comic]], but god''damn'' they're [[RuleOfFunny funny]].
** ''Webcomic/SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal'' is the only comic that makes me actually laugh out loud on every page. ''Xkcd'' doesn't even come close to making me laugh out loud. Nor does ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'', and I'm a gamer.
* ''[[http://www.reasonablyclever.com/ Reasonably Clever]]''. How many webcomics can you name that start with an asteroid hurtling towards Earth, then manages to work in a Mario Batali robot, The Matrix, a Doctor Who spinoff who is a Chilli chef, an entire organization of Red Herrings, Tony Stark, Advent Calendars (TWICE!), and cosplaying as Wash from Firefly during a [[Zombie Apocalypse]] as part of a semi-recognizable plot, and be made entirely from legos?
* ''[[http:thebookofbiff.com/ The Book of Biff]]'' is a wonderful one a day comic about the titular Biff's misadventures. And how.
* ''Webcomic/{{Digger}}''. A beautifully done webcomic with its own mythologies and backstories, as well as great characters that really make you feel for them. Also OMG the main character is a stoic wombat.
* I'd also like to mention ''Breakfast of the Gods'' a well-done story that takes a darker look into the world of cereal mascots, and is all-around very engrossing.
* You know what, screw the haters. ''DominicDeegan'' is an awesome comic with an interesting world and neat characters. It may not be perfect, but it works.
** Amen, preach brotha!
** It's by far not perfect, but that doesn't stop it from being one hell of a good comic that I spend days at a time reading and re-reading it.
* ''PennyAndAggie'' is my favourite online comic. It's a teen dramedy that plays with and sometimes subverts common TeenDrama and KidCom tropes, features three-dimensional characters whose personalities and lives actually change (no {{SnapBack}}s or {{ResetButton}}s here), alternates between goofy humour and angst (but not {{Wangst}}), and is woman- and gay-friendly.
* ''Webcomic/NatureOfNaturesArt''. It's not without its flaws (sometimes the SesquipedalianLoquaciousness works against the mood, for example) but it has beautiful artwork (done in '''oekaki''', no less!), an imaginative and well-thought-out setting, ''tons'' of creative fighting styles and names, a complete aversion of SmallTaxonomyPools, and it's very well-written. And every arc has something special to call its own, be it ''10%+ '' with its balance of humour and drama, ''Secretary'' with its endless [[MindScrew Mind Screws]], or ''Lycosa'' with its surprisingly likeable spider characters.
* ''WebComic/DeadOfSummer''. Sure, it has lots of blood and guts, but it's a ZombieApocalypse. What did you expect? Not only that, but it delves into issues rarely seen in other zombie-centric works, with sections about the animals affected by it too. Plus it has [[spoiler: Music/TheProtomen]] as major characters.
* ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily''. It is a hilarious, well drawn, and uplifting take on the characters involved in super smash bros brawl ,as well as Nintendo as a whole. It also manages to pull off being mostly a simple strip with little complexity, but when it wants to can pull off huge, complex and creative material in a way that never feels to different from the regular comic.
** And unlike most comics, the humor is probably the least inappropriate I have seen. It actually makes the pages more clever and more uplifting. Also now I want to [[EnsembleDarkhorse Andeleine]] is a future {{VideoGame/Kirby}} game. Also [[WordofGod Matthew Toronto]] has an amazing singing voice.
* ''HowIKilledYourMaster'' has interesting characters and surprisingly awesome action. But what puts it here is the orgasmic art - especially the new coloured strips. Liu Wong is slowly becoming extremely awesome as well.
* Webcomic/WhiteNoise. Art quality rarely seen on the web (which unfortunately limits it to one-a-week), outstanding characters, an excellent AfterTheEnd scenario, and heaps of sheer {{Badass}}ery? Sign me up!
* QuestionableContent is great. A constantly evolving art style, numerous, yet interesting, characters and a flowing story.
** Really? That's all you have to say? You didn't mention: The seamless intertwining of comedy and drama, the complex plots, or the FANSERVICE. I'm even writing a fanfic on it (Marigold/Sven), and I'm against fanfic of any form. Plus, Marigold is damn adorable!
** The quality of QC is blatantly obvious, but the greatness of it ''really'' hit me when I realised how much the story had gripped me. When reading through the comic for the first time, ''the'' event (you all know which one) made me cry and left me depressed for a good couple of days afterwards, that's how emotionally attached I had become to the characters. It's one of the very few webcomics to affect me like this, and if that wasn't enough, the humour is brilliant, the artwork has become amazing, and the characters feel more real than in any other comic I've ever read.

* [[{{Sylocat}} I]] love [[http://evanstanley.deviantart.com/gallery/ Ghosts of the Future]]. It is the epitome of DarkFic, but it is brilliantly written and breathtakingly illustrated, a heartrending reimagining of the [[SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]] storyline that will actually make you love and root for some of the [[TheScrappy most despised]] characters in the Sonicverse.
* As a huge VideoGame/MetalGearSolid fan, TheLastDaysOfFoxhound managed to make me look at the whole series in a different light. It's a superb comic, and like [[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Order of the Stick]], it does CerebusSyndrome right, still being awesomely funny a few strips away from a massive DownerEnding.
* {{Juathuur}}, the webcomic I made my mission to EntryPimp, is one of the best I've read. The characters ([[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters Loads And Loads Of Them]]) are complex and interesting, the conflict is never a simple good vs evil, and the world is deep and evocative. Best of all, it is frequently updated (3 times/week full color. When it was black&white it updated every weekday!). Go read it now [[http://oneway.juathuur.com/1/?strip_id=1 here]].
* MenInHats is one of the best webcomics out there. The comic is unrelentingly dark, with no chances for any of the characters to get a clue or be nicer. It shows complete hilarity at every turn, with amazing degrees of idiocy and sociopathy. Check it out when you can.
* [[http://www.catandgirl.com Cat And Girl]] is so introspective and sardonic.
* How is Webcomic/TheMeek not up here yet? Even for those of us who have just started, the art is ''so incredibly beautiful'' - all the characters are fully realized, it's funny, scary, touching, and a real page-turner, if it was printed on paper. Only in the middle of chapter 2 and I'm as involved in the story as I am in Webcomic/GirlGenius or [[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Order of the Stick]].
** Plus, Der-Shing's witty commentary and [[http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2010/144/f/f/y_hallo_by_alexds1.png warped]] [[http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2010/153/5/0/bigass_3_38_silly_panel_by_alexds1.jpg sense]] [[https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=477620281855&set=a.59800571855.82755.59174811855&type=1&theater of]][[https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=477619576855&set=a.59800571855.82755.59174811855&type=1 humor]] make it that much sweeter.
* No Webcomic/ElGoonishShive! TheChrisCarterEffect aside this comic is worth the wait. Lots of CharacterDevelopment all around (even for the AlphaBitch)and can [[MoodWhiplash seamlessly switch from funny to serious to just plain strange]]. [[GenderBending Gender-Bending]] Birthdays FTW!
** Seconded up in this bitch! This is my favorite webcomic, period. I LIKE the fact that the plot is a KudzuPlot! Just because he hasn't gotten to Lord Tedd and other things yet doesn't mean he won't. I L-O-V-E this comic, and Dan Shive is my hero. Nothing makes me laugh like EGS! George is king of hilarity, and Tedd of awesomeness!
** Third! When I heard that this comic had GenderBending, I thought I would dislike it, but I find even more endearing. The characters are memorable, if not by themselves, then by their interpersonal relationships. The art later on is actually some of the best I've seen in a webcomic. And all the main cast are likable, I don't even care if Grace is considered a MarySue, I still think she's awesome!
** I've always been impressed how meticulously thought-out late EGS is, all while retaining story flow, humor, and characterization. It's action is exciting, but the story feels like something comfortable to return to, like a cup of tea.
* ''Webcomic/{{Kaspall}}''. Not just beautifully drawn, not ''just'' filled with superb and subtle characterization, but the ''plot'' is ''astounding''. Comparable to [[OneOverZero 1/0]] for its fearless development of metafiction, but doing so in the framework of a ''supernatural suspense thriller''. Not to be missed.
* Why isn't BittersweetCandyBowl here? Never has the story of anthropomorphic dogs and cats been so gripping and heartwarming. A beautiful story.
** That only begins to describe it. Despite being anthromorphic dogs and cats, the characters feel very three dimensional that at times you forget that there anthropomorphic dogs and cats , aside from LampshadeHanging moments. The comic also has really nice art that leads to really well done expressions that will drive the emotional moments even more. It also deconstructs some very common, and sometimes annoying, tropes in romance stories such as {{Tsundere}} or DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale and the long-term consequences that can arise from them.
* ASofterWorld is the best argument for the continued existence of mankind.
* [[http://felonia.free.fr/mspfa/?s=132&p=1 A Beginner's Guide to the End of the Universe]]: an InteractiveComic that begins with a ''{{Myst}}''-reminiscent OntologicalMystery and develops into something quite unique and strangely compelling. The stick-figure-and-greyscale-clip-art style complements the surreal nature of the comic perfectly as you set out to explore a world of chilling desolation and inexplicably malevolent void creatures... and that's only the beginning.
* ''{{Goblins}}'': What starts off as a run-of-the-mill [[DungeonsAndDragons D&D]] [[RPGMechanicsVerse comic]] with average jokes and mediocre puns becomes an intense page-turner and one of the most triumphant examples of ''CerebusSyndrome''. While still humorous at times, there are [[{{Gorn}} no]] [[MoralEventHorizon punches]] [[ColdBloodedTorture pulled]] when [[FromBadToWorse bad things]] happen; which makes the [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome pay]][[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming offs]] all the more rewarding.
* TheDragonDoctors. Admittedly, it doesn't have the best arc, but the story completely makes up for it. What starts out looking like a standard TransformationComic really starts to get going during the Mr. Smith arc. Every PlotHole can be beliavably explained, every character is human enough to be relatable bespite the fantastic setting, and there are several awesome moments to boot.
* ''Webcomic/AxeCop'' is written by a 6-year-old. And it is awesome.
* WorstOfTheTimeLords is one hell of a good comic, whether you're a Series/DoctorWho fan or not.
* Toothpaste For Dinner and Married to the Sea are really good comics that just don't get enough attention. Why, I will never know.
* SlightlyDamned [[http://www.sdamned.com/2004/03/03142004/ (start here)]]: Initially, I was turned away by the title. The first 50 or so pages don't have great art. Its story starts in hell? But when I got past these things, I found one of the funniest, most heartwarming comics on the internet. The comedy is golden between DeadpanSnarker Rhea and TheDitz Buwaro, who for being a demon is an extremely lovable character. Also, the art in the more recent pages is some of the best stuff I have ever seen, of any comic genre, ever.
** Another noteworthy (and awesome) thing about SlightlyDamned is that, unlike many other webcomics, there was an actual plan for the overall story all the way from the start. Going back and reading some of the first strips, you notice tons of forshadowing and hints about events that would not be properly revealed until four or five years later in the comics run. That's pretty damn impressive.
* {{Archipelago}}: A fantasy world that starts with a man waking up with no memories, and actually does this trope well! While the art at the beginning leaves a bit to be desired, from the very get-go the characters are charming, humorous, and lovable. And I mean ''all'' the characters: the main villain is a sadistic pirate king who loves to torture and raid, and yet he is one of the most AffablyEvil characters ever. A beautiful mix of heroism, comedy, and romance.
* See, [[Tropers/WragnaroqRMaggeddon I]] know I really shouldn't, but I just have to recommend AnsemRetort. Yes, it's BlackComedy at it's finest. Yes, you can feel yourself getting a bit closer to hell every time you laugh. Yes, you will be offended if you have had a pulse at some point over the last fifteen years. Is it still ''freaking hilarious?'' YES.
* Most Korean webtoons, but especially {{Noblesse}} is awesome. It is filled with extremely {{Badass}} actions who are responsible for many cool fights, AMAZING art style and [[TheBeautifulElite very VERY attractive]] male characters, fascinating story that picks up quickly, and has a very good balance between humor and action.
* Webcomic/{{Bug|Martini}} is definitely one of the most hilarious web comics ever made.
* For [[Tropers/FashionistState me]], ''Webcomic/ElfOnlyInn'' was an instant favourite, particularly regarding the comics before the GenreShift. While cynical and hilarious at times, the main reason for this is that it captures [[SturgeonsLaw 90%]] of online roleplaying so well!
* Have any of you ever heard of ''Webcomic/UnionOfHeroes''? No, you probably haven't, as it is a Germany-based photocomic. And yet, it is awesome. It is currently the only webcomic I have found that takes a superhero theme and plays it straight. The photomanipulated special effects are seamless, and the story has me hooked. It is a little simplistic, but that's part of its charm. The action sequences are very well done. If you can forgive some awkward dialogue that results from translation from German, and you like superheroes, I can guarantee you will not regret giving ''Webcomic/UnionOfHeroes'' a shot.
* AlienDice. I just fell in love with these characters. The story beautifully portrays the suffering of an alien gladiator, but mixes in a good bit of light-heartedness as well, turning a blue battle-weary slave into a beautiful [[TheWoobie woobie]]. I could really sympathize with them as they struggle against an organization determined to keep them oppressed, along with several other random forces in the universe. Mix in an array of cute critters, spaceships, and beautiful-looking art,and you have a webcomic that has held my interest and not let it go for the past two years.
* NextTownOver. This comic has gorgeous art, great fight scenes, and takes ShowDontTell to it's inevitable conclusion. Seriously. There is not a line in the thing that doesn't need to be. All the character relationships are unspoken, but obvious through the use of echo, paratext, etc. Did I mention it's a SteamPunk {{Western}} UrbanFantasy?
* ''WintersInLavelle'' is desperately in need of a mention. The plot, so far, is sort of like that of [[TheChroniclesOfNarnia Narnia]], but with the awkward religious themes removed and a concentrated dose of awesome pumped in. The characters are well-written and realistic, but also [[WhamEpisode mind-bendingly unpredictable]]. The artwork is already good and working its way through [[ArtEvolution subtle-yet-amazing improvements]]...why are you still reading this? Go [[http://wintersinlavelle.com/?p=13 read the comic]] already!
* ''BlackAdventures'' is so deliciously random. Can be viewed here [[http://blackadventurescomic.com/]].
* ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'' is an AffectionateParody of sci-fi tropes with a surprisingly lovable RagtagBunchOfMisfits as they strive to become the greatest spacers in the galaxy. Also features a {{cyborg}} red panda and a hilarious and surprisingly adorable BigBad. [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/ Read it here]]!
* Excuse me, but I just totally [[ArchiveBinge Archive Binged]] on ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' and ''Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor'' and I really, really need to squee on how funny, clever, and even moving these [[MassiveMultiplayerCrossover Massive Multiplayer Crossovers]] are. They are each in their own way wonderful meta-commentaries on a bunch of beloved characters and what makes them (and the readers) tick. My only problem now is I'm stuck waiting for the updates like everyone else.
* SupernormalStep deserves way more attention than it's gotten so far. The art and dialogue were a little wonky at the start, but it has a killer (and deceptively simple) concept that has developed into a well-written, multifaceted genre mashup -- the best way I can describe it is an alternate-universe, science fiction/fantasy, slice-of-life, magic-superhero, fish-out-of-water, viva-la-resistance-or-maybe-not kind of thing -- with well-rounded characters, a deep and engrossing plot, and an exceedingly fun-to-look-at art style. You can find it [[http://www.supernormalstep.com/ here]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' is one of the very, very few sex comedies that does it ''right''. Witty, funny, intelligent, excellently drawn. The twisted fantasy land with its equally bizarre creatures itself makes me laugh every time. It also manages to avoid being sexist or disgusting. If you don't mind NSFW stuff, you should check it out - you might be in for a surprise.
* BadMachinery and before it ScaryGoRound are fantastic; funny, clever, bizzare and often tangibly, endearingly, British. Joh Allison is a genius.

... boom de yada boom de yada...
