->''[[http://badwebcomicswiki.shoutwiki.com/wiki/The_Bad_Webcomics_Wiki:Review_Index "These comics are completely awful and without merit or a single redeemable quality. Be warned, as you read them you can feel a cancer slowly spreading upon your soul."]]''
-->--''The Bad Webcomics Wiki'', on the category reserved for only the absolute worst comics.

Webcomics offer a very low barrier of entry and [[DirectDemographic instant feedback]], but most humans will not continue to draw something or at least try to improve if people hate it. How do you suppose these webcomics managed to continue onwards in spite of this? ''Someone'' out there has to like 'em, but we're still looking for those (other than the authors/artists themselves) who'll come forward and admit it.

'''''Important Note''''': Merely being offensive in its subject matter is insufficient. Hard as it is to imagine at times, there is a market for all types of deviancy (no matter how small a niche it is). It has to ''fail to appeal even to that niche'' to qualify as this.

'''''Second Important Note:''''' A webcomic isn't horrible just because ''The Bad Webcomics Wiki'', TheWebcomicRelief or any other CausticCritic reviewed it. There needs to be independent evidence, such as actual, professional pannings, to list it. (Though once it is listed, they can provide the detailed review(s).)

!!Examples (more-or-less in alphabetical order):

* ''[[http://qntm.org/review_worst Angel Warrior Comics]]'' is a good example of the reason {{Sprite Comic}}s are so hated. It has the usual recolored sprites, illegible text, and clashing background. It began as a gag strip, but then created an incomprehensible story. It's no surprise that the author abandoned it in March 2003, although the last strip is the author vehemently saying the webcomic is ''not'' canned and will be updated in a month or so.
* ''[[http://assignedmale.tumblr.com/ Assigned Male]]'', a webcomic about an 11-year-old transgender girl and the different challenges and prejudices she faces as a result of it. Sounds good, right? Well, actually, the main character ends up coming across as a SpoiledBrat whose parents bend to her will at every given opportunity, who tries to shove the fact that she's transgender down the throats of everybody she meets, and says things that make it apparent that the author has no idea how kids think, let alone how they talk.
* ''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.
* ''[[http://d-sex.smackjeeves.com/comics/ D-Generation Sex]]''. What, precisely, makes this so bad? Is it the "doodles in the notebook margins in fourth period"-level "art"? The relentlessly-juvenile nature of what passes for humor? The comic's base gimmick, shamelessly ripped from a Wrestling/{{WWE}} [[Wrestling/{{DGenerationX}} angle]] that had (at the time of the comic's debut) been dead for over a decade? The first (and so far only) storyline consisting of the three main characters defeating an alien invasion by superkicking the aliens' leader? All of the above?
** Seems to be a StealthParody of what a middle-schooler might find funny. Speaking of the "doodles in the notebook margins" comment, the earlier strips were literally on a scholastic lined-paper background. Whether this is enough to redeem it is up to the reader.
* ''Faith Mouse'' is sort of a funny case. It's an evangelical Christian website that appears to be of the opinion that TrueArtIsIncomprehensible. Seriously, this probably sets a record when it comes to the sheer level of baffling. And yet while reading it, one gets the feeling that it would be entirely offensive if one actually could figure out what the hell it's talking about.
** ''Faith Mouse'' is by Dan Lacey, who is now more famous for paintings of things like a nude UsefulNotes/BarackObama on a unicorn, Obama in a [[VideoGame/{{Fallout}} Vault Boy]] outfit, and Sarah Palin (and various other political figures across the spectrum) with a pancake on their heads, often naked. Also, he was [[http://blogs.citypages.com/blotter/2010/06/dan_lacey_panca.php taken to court by Birther Orly Taitz]] for a painting of her giving birth to a pancake. So it's likely the baffling absurdity of ''Faith Mouse'' was at least partially deliberate.
** Lacey had a most unlikely relationship with the debate and discussion subforum at Website/SomethingAwful circa 2008. Against all expectations, given the content of ''Faith Mouse'', he responded cordially and patiently to being called out as a Christian lunatic. He rapidly won over the forum and they became fans and customers, encouraging his more bizarre election-time work and not bugging him about his personal beliefs. He was, in the goons' view, a terrific artist and total madman — someone worthy of support rather than scorn.
* ''Webcomic/GamerChicks'' follows Suiren, a hyperactive YaoiFangirl who plays too many video games, and Kirei, her snarky [[StraightMan level-headed]] roommate. They discuss video games and have wacky misadventures. Solid enough premise, right? Wrong. Most strips are about Suiren doing one of three things:
## "Assuring" the viewer that she "[[GamerChick totally is a girl and totally plays video games]] deal with it you silly boy".
## [[YaoiFangirl Obsessing over homosexual pairings of video game characters]], while assuming anyone who thinks she's strange for talking about it to complete strangers in public "must be crazy or stupid".
## Having to fend off silly boys who are only interested in her "boobies".
** The ones that don't follow the above range from [[http://gamerchicks.comicgenesis.com/d/20070512.html pointless]] to [[http://gamerchicks.comicgenesis.com/d/20061122.html completely pointless]], or else are recycling [[http://gamerchicks.comicgenesis.com/d/20070114.html ancient jokes]] in a manner devoid of humor. The artwork is only slightly better than [[Webcomic/{{Sonichu}} Christian Chandler's]]. It's usually frighteningly OffModel, often leaves it unclear what an object is supposed to be ([[http://gamerchicks.comicgenesis.com/d/20070922.html an infamous example]] being a crowd represented by a slice of CartoonCheese), and showed almost no improvement in its whole run — it started with [[http://gamerchicks.comicgenesis.com/d/20060228.html this]] and ended with [[http://gamerchicks.comicgenesis.com/d/20090801.html this]]. The comic is notorious for summarizing the obnoxious "[[GamerChick girl gamer]]" archetype perfectly.
* ''[[http://www.girlzngames.com/?tag=gaming Girlz 'n Games]]'', much like ''Gamer Chicks'', is a comic exploring the "comedy" that comes from girls liking geeky things and playing video games. The jokes are stale, poorly delivered, and unfunny (such as references to ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}''[='s=] [[MemeticMutation cake jokes]] about two years late), many jokes are misogynistic[[note]]Usually these are just [[RealWomenDontWearDresses genre snobbery directed at women]], but there have been some DomesticAbuse jokes that [[DudeNotFunny failed]] to [[CrossesTheLineTwice cross the line a second time]][[/note]], and the art's flat and underwhelming.
** The comic was discovered by [[{{Imageboards}} 4Chan]] and Website/SomethingAwful, with the predictable result of several comments left on the website ranging from constructive criticism to outright insults. Most strikingly is how people have compared the comic to ''Webcomic/CtrlAltDel'' due to the use of backgrounds copied from Website/{{Google}} Images, [[ArtEvolution lazy artwork]] [[DefiedTrope which has seen no improvement]] since it began, the use of the same facial expressions, [[DontExplainTheJoke poor joke delivery]] and terrible dialogue, obvious sexism and also complaints about the author's ego getting in the way of real improvements and accepting any constructive criticism, resulting in her being labelled as Tim Buckley's DistaffCounterpart.
* ''[[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. The comic only shows tolerance for [[AuthorTract Hathor's own views]] and [[{{Demonization}} demonizes anyone]] that advocates modern medicine, formula feeding, or sending your kids to school as an abusive parent. The author, essentially a hippie helicopter mom crossed with a {{Bizarro}} liberal Creator/JackChick, 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.
* ''[[http://headwound.thecomicseries.com/ Head Wound]]'' This thing is MS Paint scribbles with the story telling of a 15 year old attempting to copy South Park. Absolutely NSFW, obviously.
* ''[[http://jenffersshow.thecomicseries.com/ Jenffer´s Show]]'', a possible TrollFic by a user at the old [[ImageBoards 789chan]], combines hideous and poorly made artwork (which is bad enough to make the art from ''Webcomic/SweetBroAndHellaJeff'' look beautiful and detailed in comparison) with an unintelligible plot where it is ''very'' hard to understand what is going on in most of the pages. The dialogue constantly includes grammar mistakes (and on some pages, it becomes [[http://jenffersshow.thecomicseries.com/comics/837/ literally]] [[http://jenffersshow.thecomicseries.com/comics/838 unreadable]] due the small and confusing handwriting). Pretty much like ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}'' it doesn't seem to know its target audience, and despite being around the web since around 2010 (though the author appears to have been making it for ''decades''), it hasn't show any signs of improvement. The only reason anybody goes easy on it is because the creator apparently is severely developmentally disabled.
* ''[[http://web.archive.org/web/20100820150601/http://dir.salon.com/topics/kansas_oflaherty/ Kansas O'Flaherty, Secret Agent]]'' was a weekly strip for four months on Salon.com. Every episode was greeted by a string of reader comments complaining about pretentious cultural references, bad artwork, inconsistent lettering, [[RougeAnglesOfSatin occasional misspelled words]], non-sequiturs, and [[RandomEventsPlot general lack of a coherent plot]]. The strip's few defenders generally explained it as [[TrollFic an experiment in anti-humor designed to provoke strong reactions from readers]].
* ''Kit 'n' Kay Boodle'' is a very, ''very'' NotSafeForWork webcomic which stars a large cast of animals {{yiff}}ing in public [[EverybodyHasLotsOfSex all the time]] in a creepily cartoonish MarySuetopia. The listing at AuthorTract is a good summary — "It is entirely a vehicle for Richard Katellis' views on free love, yiffing, and the plight of the [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom furry community]]. The world outside of idyllic, nudist Yiffburg is full of monstrous dictatorships and ruthless capitalist states that criticize Yiffburg for being horny layabouts. Any character who doesn't constantly want sex with total strangers is either an evil fascist or a repressed soul, and the answer is invariably anonymous sex, either to defeat or convert them to the yiffy way of life." One character even looks like a giant penis.[[note]] He's meant to be some kind of lizard or cave salamander. Chew that over for a while.[[/note]] The strip is drawn in a cutesy-poo cartoonish style, turning any possible erotic content into extra-strength FetishRetardant. All sorts of horridness abounds, including a FantasticDrug which acts as both an aphrodisiac and contraceptive, [[TheImmodestOrgasm immodest orgasms]], ParentalIncest, RapeAsRedemption...and none of the Yiffburgians even bother to ''work'' because exporting the berries is enough to sustain their economy. There's also some UnfortunateImplications about the way the FantasticDrug works - it comes in two colors, indicating which sex is supposed to eat which berry...but the "[[{{Uke}} bottoms]]" of gay male couples eat the berries meant for women. Um...
* ''[[http://lessonsindistraction.comicgenesis.com/d/20070707.html Lessons in Distraction]]'', by the author of ''Gamer Chicks'', is just as bad and possibly even worse — a blatant SelfInsert comic where the main character falls in love with an obvious {{Expy}} of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]]. The art's worse than ''Gamer Chicks'' since it's all black and white, muddling the actions even more. The main character's harassed brutally by the AlphaBitch for no real reason, cheese is once again used as a lazy stand-in for crowds, and a confusing plot involving the two main characters turning into animal-things is introduced and dropped. It appears to be a desperate effort from the author to gain sympathy for her "dark and depressing" life. The comic stopped updating in August 2008, [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing to the bereavement of nobody]].
* ''[[http://lightbringer.comicgenesis.com/d/20060315.html Lightbringer]]'' is a superhero story about a young man who lives in a crime infested city and uses his entirely-unexplained light manipulation powers to fight a cell of thugs known as Slavers. [[ArtisticLicensePhysics The light powers also somehow give him the ability to fly.]] Many consider this to be one of the worst webcomics ever written, some even venturing to put it beyond ''Sonichu'' in its wretchedness. If ''Lightbringer's'' terrible, MS Paint-rendered art that is just shy of [[UncannyValley creepy]] isn't enough to make you cringe, then the painfully ham-fisted writing, railroaded plot and obvious rip-offs of other superhero comics will cause you to question whether or not some people should even be allowed to use drawing utensils.
* ''[[http://thedailywtf.com/series/Mandatory_Fun_Day.aspx Mandatory Fun Day]]'', a comic Website/TheDailyWTF ran for several weeks. Season 1 featured poor artwork, cut-and-paste characters, anemic writing, and humor so thin you could see through it; it was even colored in an eye-searing MS-Paint style. Season 2 redeemed it somewhat, but the general distaste and endless mockery toward the comic led to it being removed.
** The only humor to be found was usually the re-edited strips found in the comments. After some time, the comic's author started acknowledging the best-edited versions of the previous comic in each post. Not sure what that says about his attitude towards his own comic...
* ''Motherfuckin' Mario'' is considered by the few who have actually read it to be the worst sprite comic in history... despite never even passing seven comics. This could be attributed to the fact that it is one of the most disgusting things you will ever read. It's eye-searingly ugly even by the low standards of sprite comics, almost everyone is terminally out of character, [[TheyKilledKennyAgain the one character that isn't (Luigi) is frequently killed]] [[ButtMonkey and tortured,]] [[DudeNotFunny and the whole experience just isn't funny...]] unless, that is, you consider Mario keeping Birdo as a sex slave and accidentally killing her because he overcharged her shock collar or Bowser overdosing on Viagra until his penis explodes to be funny. Seriously. There's no punchlines in sight. Just pure, condensed, unfiltered offensiveness that would be enough to disgust even Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone.
* ''[[http://mylittleschool.deviantart.com/gallery/43166367/1st-book My Little School]]'' (no connection with ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'') would have remained in obscurity had it not been for the fact that the creator frequents the forums on Website/DeviantART, and it should have remained there because of how awful it is. The dialogue is poorly worded, the artwork is barely above elementary school-level, the characters are flat and unlikeable, and the comic tries to be dramatic but fails miserably. What you end up getting is a product so sub-par, it makes ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeMe'' look ''good'' in comparison. [[CantTakeCriticism And don't get us started on]] [[SmallNameBigEgo the creator's response to criticism]].
* ''[[http://oneframegags.smackjeeves.com/ One-Frame Gags]]'', an obscure webcomic that ran a little under a year from September 2012 to July 2013, had terrible artwork, unfunny "gags", and [[HurricaneOfPuns way too many terrible puns]]. The only thing it has going for it is that [[Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic David Morgan-Mar]] actually wrote a [[http://oneframegags.smackjeeves.com/comics/1619666/71/ guest strip]] for it. The creator became a ''Webcomic/SquareRootOfMinusGarfield'' creator after it ended and made some '''slightly''' better strips.
* 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 comic made a poorly executed attempt at CerebusSyndrome by dealing with a character's past, witnessing her mother being raped. This was intended as serious and gave ''Shredded Moose'' some well needed character development but perhaps it was too late. This, combined with every other comic seeming to be a {{Filler}} strip of a nude girl (even in the middle of storylines!), made the comic even less readable toward the end. Mercifully, [[OrphanedSeries it seems to have finally died]]. The domain name expired, and the creators have made no effort to find a new site. Still the memory of such a comic scars the minds of many a critic forevermore. [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes While we in some ways regret having almost no evidence of such a comic existing, save for few scraps on the internet, and the words of critics left in its wake,]] [[TakeOurWordForIt we inform you that the internet, however, takes solace that such a comic is finally gone...]]
* ''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. Oh, Internet has an article on it as well, also with strips and with more serious analysis.
** To make matters worse, other racists started [[{{Irony}} using this comic to justify their racism towards Asians]]. [[note]]Protip: Spewing racist garbage because of a racist rant only [[StrawmanHasAPoint proves the original racist's point]] and still makes you a racist.[[/note]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}'' is the purest form of BileFascination condensed into a single webcomic, and nothing else can be said here that the rest of the Internet hasn't already covered through rants, reviews, parodies, spoofs, articles, and even ''[[TheWikiRule an entire wiki]]''. The comic lacks even the most basic aspects of creativity, artistry, composition, sense of proportion or comedic timing. Its reliance on hackneyed exposition reaches ridiculous levels, as sometimes ''entire pages'' are dominated by impenetrable [[WallOfText walls of text]] that [[ShowDontTell explain the events instead of showing them]]. It also contains some of the ''worst'' ProtagonistCentredMorality in all of fiction. Jokes, ideas, character concepts, and entire plotlines are all either flagrantly plagiarized or an obvious attempt at venting the author's spleen. It didn't seem to know its target audience (childish plots and humor were combined with unsettling violence and graphic sex), it had pretty much no set schedule by the time it finally stopped updating in February 2010, and devolved into a self-righteous, disturbing vanity project in later issues.
* ''[[http://www.stalag99.net/ Stalag '99]]'', authored by Kelly "[=STrRedWolf=]" Price, focuses on the adventures of a hermaphrodite wolf-skunk hybrid [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom furry]]. Not only is the artwork rather stiff, the dialogue's horrific and the site layout is very outdated. Despite copying and pasting panels constantly, the strip also suffers from frequent ScheduleSlip.
** And to make matters worse, despite the fact that the comic started in 1999, it has shown very little improvement in the art department even after 10 years.
* ''[=THe FReCKLeD FINGeR=]'' has a very good, professional art style. Too bad it's [[DudeNotFunny 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''".
* ''[[http://warmage.comicgenesis.com/ WarMage]]'' [[OrphanedSeries (On hiatus since 2009)]] is an MSPaint-spawned harem porn monstrosity covered in a hash of superhero ([[InactionSequence in]])action, TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture cyberpunk, and whatever Wicca and Hindu mysticism the author feels like tossing in. Bad enough on its own, but the author decided to [[RecycledPremise clone]] it for different genres — ''[[http://monsterlover.comicgenesis.com/ Monster Lover]]'' (a mishmash of RPGElements) and ''[[http://madgoblin.comicgenesis.com/ A Call To Destiny]]'' (a mishmash of RPG elements ''[[RecycledInSPACE in space!]]'').
** For extra funtimes, the antagonists of ''[=WarMage=]'' tend to be assorted flavors of Judeo-Christian fundamentalists.
** The creator also had a fourth comic that breaks the pattern, but is otherwise just as bad: [[http://shadowroot.comicgenesis.com/ Shadow Root]] - which is basically ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGray'' meets UrbanFantasy.
