  • mezzacotta. Here's the first strip. Check out the date on the URL. Over 3.6 quadrillion strips to read!!! If this doesn't inspire Archive Panic in you, nothing will.note

  • Kevin & Kell has been publishing continuously since September 1995. It was weekdays-only for a while, but went to every day in the summer of 2000. The strip has had no break for 25 years, putting it over 8,900 comics in its archive. Bill Holbrook lampshaded it in 2013, showing Rachel being exhausted by an archive binge.
  • User Friendly has been daily since November 1997 and is now over 8600 pages long.
  • Superosity has been running daily since March 1999 and has over 8200 pages.
  • Jerk City averts this. It started in 1998 and has updated near daily since then. However, having Noodle Incident humour, detailed tagging and no plot means the best way to read it is by hitting the Random button (though there is the occasional sequential storyline, every strip still works as a total standalone). Now over 8200 strips.

  • Homestuck has concluded at 8130 pages as of 4/13, 2016. Its wordcount alone bests some translations of War and Peace without taking into account the visuals and frequent several-minute cinematic flash animations (the more important of these have been as long as 15 minutes) or playable flash game segments that can run anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours to completely explore. In addition, Hussie's sporadic but rampant update schedule and usual One-Man Army nature (since he does most of the work himself) means that by the time you catch up, he could have added any number of pages - he once claimed to be taking a break, and then updated eighty pages within the span of a week. It is worth noting that Homestuck actually has Save and Autosave buttons to return you to where you left off. It is also worth noting that, compared to nearly every other webcomic on this page, MS Paint Adventures is very new, only having started in 2007, yet had ranked up nearly 9,000 pages by 2014. To make matters worse, Homestuck starts very casually, and picks up speed after the first two Acts, which are easy enough to blow through rapidly. Thus, it is extremely easy to start reading in the evening or at night under the mistaken impression that it is easy to stop reading, and then look out the window and notice that the sun is rising. Most of that bulk of writing doesn't kick in until Act 5, whereupon to have any idea what's going on, you'll need to read about two thousand pages of dense content and sudden twists. What's even worse is that the comic is rife with foreshadowing and explanations which can be easily missed, so skimming often leads to having no clue what happened in already-confusing plot twists. Overall, this website provides an interesting analysis of MS Paint Adventure's total wordcount: the total number of words including transcribed flashes is 761,345, longer than the King James Bible, and when the images and flashes are converted into a wordcount (basically, the number of words it would take to communicate the same information in words) it reaches a whole 1,159,315 words, or 107% of the entire Harry Potter series. Now that's an Archive Panic! It's gotten to the point where its epilogue has a prologue, seriously.

  • Sinfest has a little bit of continuity, although it isn't necessary to read all of the over 7600 previous comics to understand the current strips.
  • Schlock Mercenary is a prime offender. A daily strip that hit twenty years in June 2020, it's amazing new readers keep coming to it. Mr. Tayler had never, ever missed a strip, even when his server blew up. He even once sold a fridge magnet warning about it. It ended with 7352 strips.
  • Sluggy Freelance consists of over 7100 comics, all of which (including the filler) are important to the plot. The comic started running daily since August 25, 1997. Including filler and guest strips (many of which are actually part of the plot), that comes out to 5355 strips at the time of this editing. It finally slowed down in early June of 2012, at least temporarily, to a less-than-daily schedule after a family health scare involving Pete's younger daughter and later Pete himself getting a horrible flu, which resulted in one week of pure filler followed by one week of no content (save for a guest sketch by his older daughter) and then the comic going onto MWF while he gets things back together, with plans to go to MTWTF rather than all seven days once things start to stabilize again. Lampshaded in this comic.
  • The Devil's Panties. A comic a day with rare exceptions since October 2001. Over 7000 strips.
  • Unshelved is a long running gag-a-day comic with over 6900 strips.
  • The Mansion of E has been updating daily since 2003. Over 6500 pages.
  • Phil Likes Tacos — started in 2002, hasn't missed a day since 2005. Now over 6300 strips. Good Luck!
  • PvP started in 1998 and is currently five strips a week rather than seven, but it still has over 6200 strips.
  • Least I Could Do deserves a mention, having run since 2003 on a primarily daily basis it's over 6100 strips.
  • Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal. Over 6000 comics. Though most of the earlier comics are single-panel and feature no continuity whatsoever, other than various running gags.
  • Cyanide & Happiness is a long running gag-a-day comic with over 5600 strips.
  • Legostar Galactica is a long running Sci-Fi Photo Comic with over 5300 strips.
  • El Goonish Shive has a total of over 5100 strips consisting of over 2900 main story strips (practically all of which are canon), over 1200 newspaper style strips (some of which are canon) and over 900 filler strips (non-canon). No wonder it's Trope Overloaded. It's over 200 chapters (counting main story and newspaper style strips, though several of them have 10 or fewer strips). It's one of those things where once you get going you keep reading because you have to know what happens next. Fortunately, Dan puts reference links in The Rant.
  • Diesel Sweeties has over 5100 strips to date.
  • Scary Go Round. Six years of weekday strips as of 2008 or ten years of strips if you read all of Bobbins as well - and Scary-Go-Round essentially is Bobbins with a new title and a spruce-up. This is part of why John Allison started Bad Machinery (which itself is 1928 strips). While it is a sequel to Scary Go Round, you do not have to know anything to get into it. 1791 comics for Scary-Go-Round, 1249 for Bobbins, and 4968 for the Bobbinsverse as a whole.

  • Requiem is a long running Sci-Fi comic with over 4600 strips.
  • Questionable Content has over 4600 strips, and most are of decent length, and the story is continuous (mostly), making it quite addictive. It's difficult to get through quickly since they're almost always 4-paneled, vertical, and all too often wordy.
  • Something*Positive currently has over 4500 strips.
  • Irregular Webcomic! has updated almost daily since 2002 and has over 4500 strips. Writer David Morgan-Mar once boasted that he had overtaken Freefall in number of strips and had stated a goal of publishing at least as many comics as Calvin & Hobbes creator Bill Watterson: 3,160. At least you can read them five at a time.
  • TRU-Life Adventures is a long running life embellished comic with over 4400 strips.
  • Wapsi Square has been running since 2001, has over 4400 strips, and has heavy enough continuity that you can't merely skim read if you want to be able to understand what is going on.
  • Square Root of Minus Garfield is a long running gag-a-day comic with over 4400 strips.
  • Castlevania RPG has updated most weekdays since early 2005 (sporadically since 2003). The main storyline includes over 2000 comics, and with the backstories (one for each of the main characters except Princess), bonus story arcs, filler strips, and the related Darkmoon's Silly Webcomic (updating since 2000 and existing in the same continuity), all of which are referenced in the main storyline, the total archive includes over 4200 strips and counting.

All that, plus other miscellaneous updates in the archive that aren't part of those stories, bring the total to over 3600 updates as of September 2019.
  • In order to compensate, Mae Dean has created a kind of Cliff Notes to Real Life Comics, only featuring the important strips. Of course, you have to pay for it and you can only get it if you live in the United States, but whatever. Over 3700 pages.
  • Dinosaur Comics not only has well over a thousand comics (now over 3700), but each is extremely wordy and contains little variation in art throughout. One of the most rewarding to get through but wholly unnecessary due to the lack of common plot.
  • Nukees has been running continually since January 1997 updating mostly 3 times a week with over 3600 comics. Good luck.
  • Freefall has been running since March 1998, on a three-strip-per-week plan (Monday, Wednesday, Friday), plus a very occasional bonus strip (usually shown in the archive on the same page as a regular strip). Passed 2,000 strips in 2011 (although a few fans considered it more significant when it posted its 2,011th strip in 2011). Over 3600 now.

  • Nerf NOW!! is a gaming comic with over 2900 strips.
  • Girl Genius averted this for a while — it started out as a print comic before moving to the web, and Foglios eased new reader access considerably by including a "101 class" (which started from the beginning) and an "Advanced Class" (which started where the print series left off), and updating them concurrently. Then in June 2007, the 101 class caught up with the beginning of the Advanced Class, giving 101 readers and newcomers a couple years of panic-laden archive trawling to catch up on, promptly breaking the site for a few days. Over 2900 pages.
  • And Shine Heaven Now was published for eight years, with updates at about six times a week and ending at 2918 comics.
  • Two Evil Scientists ended with 2909 pages in total consisting of 1993 pages in the main comic, 82 in Out of Continuity, 334 in the Lost Chapters, 363 for the spin-off Chrono Crossover, and 137 for the semi spin-off Mega Girl. Happy reading.
  • Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic has been updating daily for 4 years and has over 2800 strips. Also given the story format, is not likely that it will be over any time soon.
  • Survivor: Fan Characters: While the comic itself is broken into seasons, each one a separate story, it has continuity and characters will often reference past seasons. Veteran fans also assume everyone read every season. It currently has over 2800 strips.
  • Guilded Age is a Heroic Fantasy comic with over 2800 strips.
  • Bruno was a Slice of Life comic that ran from 1996 to 2007 and ended with 2840 strips.

It quickly became It's Walky!, which ran weekdays for 5 years, followed by Joyce and Walky! and Shortpacked!. The latter ran every weekday from the beginning of 2005 to 2015; the former ran three days a week from 2005 to 2015, with only one out of every three of those strips for non-subscribers. If you want to read that archive, it's 10 years’ worth of reading and well over $100 in "donations." There are about 2800 freely available strips.
  • Flipside has over 2700 pages, counting both its incarnations. Luckily it's quite the easy read.

  • The Order of the Stick has over 1200 online comics. (This is not including the "bonus comics" included in the print editions, or the prequel books.) While this may not seem like much, keep in mind these are full-page comics with 12 or more panels each, and it's probably one of the wordier comics out there. And except for a few of the first 100 strips, every single strip is part of an arc and will contain important plot points, so it’s unwise to skip any. In fact, it is so dense and Troperiffic, it is one of the handful of webcomics that are not just Trope Overdosed but Trope Overloaded containing about quadruple the number of tropes to strips.

  • Blood Is Mine is a horror themed Interactive Comic that ended with 1200 strips.
  • Accursed Dragon is a fantasy comic with over 1100 strips.
  • Sequential Art has over 1100 strips. Plus with how easily the series jumps from Slice of Life comedy to full blown story arcs that can last for dozens of strips while also often introducing new characters, skipping ahead at any point can leave newcomers very confused.
  • MYth is a fantasy comic with over 1100 strips.
  • Captain SNES: The Game Masta has over 1100 story strips. That seems small in comparison to the others, but they are very dialogue-heavy, and it's written in small letters.

  • Mayonaka Densha is a Historical Fantasy comic that ran from 2010 to 2013 with 1049 strips.
  • Goblins is relatively short, with only about 900 strips or so, but they're full-page images that simply cannot be skimmed.
  • The Bravoman webcomic was the only ShiftyLook comic to reach 300 strips. As such, it's a significantly longer read than the other ShiftyLook webcomics, many of which never made it that far.
  • Averted by the "first comic created specifically for web distribution", Argon Zark. It has been running since June 1995, still updates almost every year, and has a grand total of 78 strips as of 2020.
  • Volklore averts this, in a sense, by running backwards, so that taking an Archive Trawl is actually moving forward in the story. The last known page (and thus the earliest in the story) can be found here. If it turns out that it only ever had 8 strips (which seems to be the case) then it averts this in the normal sense as well.
