Webcomic: Chopping Block
A darkly humorous webcomic by Lee Adam Herold documenting since 2000 the single-panel exploits of Butch R. Mann, a hockey mask-wearing serial killer who is equal parts "Jason Voorhees, Hannibal Lecter, Norman Bates, and Ziggy." Most of the humor of the strip comes from taking typical horror and slasher tropes, then bringing them to the most ludicrous possible applications. The strip is notable for both its gag skill in Crossing the Line Twice, and its unique gray-toned art style that is both inked and sponged before being scanned into the computer.

Definitely not for kids, as the subject matter swings freely from Black Comedy to Gallows Humor to Black Comedy and all steps in between. However, if you're in the mood for a little walk on the darker side of the mind, this is the panel-strip for you.
