webcomics


I read some webcomics. They may or may not make you giggle.

  • www.questionablecontent.net
    A very long-running comic about Marten Reed, his robot, and drama that ensues. You’re going to have to read it. It would take too long to describe the plot. Also- the art gets much better. Updates Monday-Friday.
  • www.picturesforsadchildren.com
    A minimalist comic, it is full of dark humor and jabs at society. Used to have a bit of a plotline, now it is just random bits of sad humor. Updates erratically.
  • http://alternate.smackjeeves.com/comics/94055/chapter-1/
    Alternate is simultaneously strange and awesome. It follows a very driven student, Skye, who for some reason is determined to be “the best.” He meets the following obstacles: Happy sentences, Asian poker-robotics, a very interesting eye dissection, and one extremely creepy girl. Updates very erratically.

    Jam. That will be all. Updates weekly.

    The art here is magnificent and droolworthy and absolutely…um, um, well, I cannot think of adjectives good enough to describe how in love I am with this comic. There are zombies and vampires and small 24-year olds with strange chest configurations who wield hammers and Magic Markers. And werewolves. And ghosts. And selkies. Please read it.

    Drawn and written by two of my favourite artists ever, this is another “slice of life” webcomic. It’s about a Julian, who is positively in love with his favourite novelist, Sydney Morgan. Problem is, no one knows her real name. He’s continually annoyed by his “friend” Landon…stuff happens. It’s been on hiatus for a ridiculously long time.
  • http://www.xkcd.com/
    Just read it, okay? Updates sometimes.

    I love, I love, I love this comic. It is like history turned in to awesomeness and rainbows and mermaids and shit. Read it, plz. I have one of Kate Beaton’s other comics on my wall, the one she drew for the New Yorker, and every day I look up to it and think “Dannnnnnng.” Because it is great.

    THE CUTEST THING EVER man I love this comic, it is about Yuko and her friend Ananth and all the stuff they get up to, as well as some side stories about basilisks and girls with skeleton hands. I highly recommend. Updates Tuesdays ‘n’ Thursdays ‘n’ maybe Saturdays.
  • http://www.catrackham.com/
    Little vignettes about the titular Cat Rackham. I don’t think it updates anymore, but- very well done.
  • www.fuguuvijon.deviantart.com
    Drawn sort of strangely, but overall, quite solidly done. It follows the adventures of Jirou, who is somehow cursed, and his menagerie of buddies as they try to find stuff. Okay, terrible summary, but I tried. Updates erratically.
  • www.skeletallamping.smackjeeves.com
    Damn this is a good comic. All the dialogue is taken directly from the lyrics of the album Skeletal Lamping by Of Montreal, and the story is quite neat as well: Jacques Lamure is a sex addict who falls in love with a toy doll, Penelope- and then his alter ego (and real-life alter ego of Kevin Barnes), Georgie Fruit, pops up to give Jacques a good talking-to now and again. It is ridiculously well-drawn, captures the essence of the album SO well…there is nothing to hate about this comic. And I might be drawing a bit for Gallery Piece! OH EXCITING. EXCITING INDEEEED. Updates kind of erratically.

this page will be updated when I stumble across new ones.

    Hello! you didn’t leave me your e-mail address so i could respond to you so I followed your link here!

    I’m going out of the country for a few weeks but I would definitely love a critique.

    Yes, sometimes I would leave out repetitions of the lyrics because I could only put lines in so many places and people could just sit and hang around the page as well as have more time to look at the pictures I suppose.

    Thank you so much for leaving me a comment! They help me so much

      THANK YOUUU

      I just finished updatin’ the page, hopefully some people will click on it-
      and, just so you know, I am DameOfMaracas on dA, and I sent you a message about doing a few guest pages for Gallery Piece. I would love to maybe do one page, if it would be okay- if it is, I’ll send you my prototype page and see what you think.
      again, thank you!
