12/13 of my future classmates agree: XKCD is a really awesome webcomic.

If I were you, I'd punch the one who doesn't like it. And call me to take his place.

It's not exactly naive. And it can happen. But it's tough. And definetly worthwhile.

XKCD is variable. At its best it's wonderful; at its worst, Randal is barely trying and doing little more than pander to his nerd audience.

Still, better than most on average.

Charlatan, you wrote off Gunnerkrigg Court too quickly. Does this look emo to you?

I didn't write any of that.

I need to go back to Gunnerkrigg Court and catch up. Another victim of my hating the page-by-page dripfeed but liking the story.

I just really, really didn't like the fanwank in the related thread, same as Order Of The Stick.

Yeah, well, if I judged a work by it's media thread, well...let's just say I wouldn't be a fan of anything.

I'm a fan of Kagerou. I read the current strips of Penny Arcade, but I'm not about to go back and Archive Binge. I also have a bunch of other comics on my to-read list.

Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?

I'm generally quite capable of ignoring a work's media thread.

I couldn't ignore the OOTS thread, since that's how I learned when it updated. (does not know how to use RSS)

I've asked for advice on how to do it, but never got a response.

1) Get an RSS reader. There are some standalone apps, and some that are addons like Sage and Feedly.

2) Find the RSS button on your preferred website. If you use Firefox most sites with RSS will have a button in the address bar, and you can use that to click on it and subscribe.

3) Run your preferred reader.

If anyone here doesn't read Freakangels, you should start. It's fantastic.

Digger had its last update today. I love that webcomic, and I'm sad to see it finish, but it was a good ending.

Be not afraid...

Er, Charlatan already mentioned Homestuck, but I'd like to point out it's positive qualities.

It's not entirely a webcomic. It's a lot more, it's not just a genre bender (and boy does it do that), it's a media bender. Very few of the images are static, all of them are gifs, it has entire animated sequences, entire animated sequences set to music (which I personally like), and entire playable sequences.

Yeah, us fans are annoying, but that's just because it's sunk it's fangs that deep into us. It's very much a comic about the internet, for the internet, and can only be enjoyed via the internet.

I found it boring and rather confusing, honestly.

I'm big on Dada Comics. It's a shame most people aren't.

Favorites include Listening To 11975 Mhz and if it counts, A Softer World

I'm liking Problem Sleuth. It's been pretty funny.

Is it different from Homestuck, or is it the same but less popular?
