Hello friends, and happy solstice!
Here are some webcomics to suit every occasion:
Perhaps you want to click around for five minutes and laugh your ass off
Toothpaste For Dinner / Natalie Dee / Married to the Sea : Husband and wife team from the midwest with a penchant for nail polish and rap music make with the funny in several strips. I particularly appreciate MttS, because it has old pictures that say absurd things. And that is amusing.
Hark! A Vagrant! : History! Literature! Hilarity! Canada! Brought to you by Kate Beaton!
Phuzzy Comics : Also from Strip Search, Monica Ray’s comics are both hilarious and adorable, much like Monica herself.
Dinosaur Comics : You guys. This comic might be…the best comic?!
Axe Cop: He’s a cop. With an axe. Written by a child. Drawn by an adult. The best.
Perhaps you would like to read a more character-driven plot-tabulous story
Questionable Content : Neurotic people trying to have coherent adult lives. Metal! Orbital space stations! Sentient robots! Coffee!
Girls with Slingshots : …Neurotic people trying to have coherent adult lives. Sexy times! Poly relationships! Alcohol! Talking cacti!
Narbonic : Office work at the office of the EEEVIL SCIENTIST.
Skin Horse: The follow-up comic from another perspective, viz. the government agents in charge of dealing with the evil scientists.
Perhaps you would like to learn some things while having fun
Bird and Moon: I showed this strip to my mom, it is that much about science. That sentence might not make sense with everyone’s mom. But it does with mine. So hah.
Science Comic: Maki Naro (also Strip Search, holler) writes about science! And other things as well! #beardwall
xkcd: This man graphs things. Such things.
Family Man: Dylan Meconis’ gorgeous masterpiece. Mostly it is about werewolves but it is in this section because you will learn about HISTORY, too.
Perhaps you would like some sexy times?!
Oglaf: Apparently this was an attempt at porn, but then it turned out really funny so they just rolled with it.
Oh Joy Sex Toy: Erika Moen (Strip Search again, hooray), writer of DAR!, is back with a sassy sex toy review comic. Highly recommended for both practical reasons and entertainment value!
Chester 3000: There is a sexy robot. It is pretty art. It is drawn by Jess Fink. I haven’t read a lot of it, but it’s pretty and sexy and deserves a shout-out here.
…and a special mention to Sinfest, which went from a funny-but-kinda-exploitative gag strip in the 2000s to a full on awesomesauce feminist manifesto in the 2010s. Totally worth a look.
There are so many more. But I must stop for now, for sanity’s sake. Enjoy! Post your faves in the comments!
