* [[{{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.

* There's one webcomic that definitely deserves more love and recognition, and that's ''Webcomic/{{Rain}}''. It's a SliceOfLife comic about a young transgender girl named Rain who deals with typical high school stuff, while also dealing with the hardships that come with being trans. Admittedly, the early chapters are rather rough, with unpolished art and one main character outing Rain as soon as he meets her, but trust me, after chapter 8, it gets really awesome. I'm not transgender myself, but when I first came across this webcomic, I read the whole thing in a span of two days, and it really taught me a lot about the struggles that transgender people go through, and while it does tend to lean on the preachy side every now and again, it still feels genuine. The characters are all flawed yet loveable (sans a select few), the messages are relatively well executed, the art gets much better over the course of the comic, it's realistic and down-to-earth, and the comic has resonated with a lot of people, me included. If you're looking for a webcomic that's well written and genuinely good, check it out!


* 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.

** Everything about this comic is wonderful. Except Boxbot, who is [[ButtMonkey terrible.]]

** 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.)

* ''[[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 UsefulNotes/{{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.

* ''[[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 [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Crowning Moments of Funny]] and (shockingly) [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments 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.

* ''Webcomic/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.

** 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.

* ''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.

** 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!)

* ''Webcomic/PicturesOfYou'' is my favourite Webcomic (sharing the podest with Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt). The way Gibson Twist portrays the relationships of the group is just unbelievably natural. Go read it!

* ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'': What starts off as a run-of-the-mill [[TabletopGame/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.

** Seconded, there is just one thing that´s quite annoying, the Christian AuthorTract, but the lampshade sorta fixes this.


** Seconded. And long archive binges are not bad, just spread them out. I really enjoy the mixture of real science, realistic drama, realistic portrayal of religion, Ms.Amrose is impressively kind, and it never loses the humor. Seriously, it's pretty great.



** 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!

* 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]].

* 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.

** If you have to read a webcomic, you have to make it ''Webcomic/{{Paranatural}}''. A lot of people have described it as [[XMeetsY Earthbound meets Gravity Falls]], and they're not wrong. It's intriguing, well crafted, and downright hilarious to boot.

*** 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.

* I spent the better portion of my afternoon making a TVTropes page for ''Webcomic/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.
