Default Heresy Webcomics Exchange

So here's the deal.
We want to know what you think is funny. We want to be exposed to new and hilarious things, and we want to learn about you, our beloved members.

So go to you bookmarks file and pull out all those demented little webstrips and humor sites and slap them in here.

If a site contains material might not be work-safe, them be courteous and add a tag onto the link, something like [NWS: Language, etc], but remember not to post anything that'd go against our rules (no porn, or sites containing lots of porn, messages of hate, racism, etc.)

So, here's mine. Behold as I bare my soul and empty out my comics folder

Cracked.com[language] Not really a webcomic per-se, but an often hilarious (sometimes disappointing) humor site, lots of great articles.

xkcd Sometimes brilliantly funny, sometimes way the hell over my head, this stick-figure comic is for the hardcore geek set. Very smart, often hits home. This is me... Oh, and on eof my favorite features: Mouseover text! It's like mining for extra funny. (Firefox users, grab the Long Titles extension to read it all!)

Daily Dinosaur Comics Another odd one. Every day it;s the exact same MS Paint image of dinosaurs stepping on things, but the dialogue changes...every...single...day... Again, it's often insightful and hilerious and often leaves me blinking and going, "Uh..?" Also, mouseover text!

The Adventures of Dr. McNinja Godly...no, seriously. Fucked up, random, loaded with cliches and insanity...but it works, it fucking works! The storylines are actually (in their own insane way) very coherent and well-plotted, the art is clean and sharp and it's just plain funny. Also, mouseover text! (last one, I promise)

Order Of The Stick I know the guy who does this, he used to be a regular on my tiny obscure little D&D boards, back before he became an internet/gaming idol. Rich is a nice guy with a really good comic about D&D. Read it, it's hilarious and well-plotted. I have all of his books personally autographed and doodled in

Nodwick.com Actually, it's Nodwick, Full Frontal Nerdity and PS238. I read it for FFN, more than anything these days. I grew up on Nodwick, but a man can only take so many duct tape jokes.

Penny Arcade Yeah, everyone knows this one. Local talent from the gray and damp northwest. They also pioneered the art of getting filthy fucking megarich off drawing cartoons on the internet, so yeah...go geeks.

PVP Online Ostensably a gaming comic, but really more of an office sitcom with trolls and random wackiness. Seems to have lost some of its edge lately, but, still one of the classics. (He's in guest strips for the moment, so don't take the strips at time of posting as what it's about)

VG Cats mostly about video games, usually funny...not often updated.

Turn Signals on a Land Raider Where would we be without this one? It's about 40k...the game, not the world. Life as seen through the eyes of a tiny plastic space man

So what do you guys read? Let's hear it, Heretics!

(Pssst...someone sticky this!)

Galahad covered most of the ones I like. So I only have two to add...

Pearls Before Swine: Daily Comic Strip about a naive god hearted pig and his group of odd friends. Some great characters like the selfish mouse and the stupid fraternity of crocs called the "Zeeba Zeeba Eatas".
http://www.comics.com/comics/pearls/

Perry Bible Fellowship: Kind of on the humour of xkcd, but much darker and not as nerdy. Hasn't been updated in a while.

Ctl+Alt+Del hilarious webcomic in the vein of Penny Arcade, but has an actual storyline, and funnier characters in my opinion.

Looking For Group great WoW comic. It doesn't have very many updates, but I was enthralled by it. GREAT storyline and artwork. "Rejoice, for very bad things are about to happen."

*sigh* I have to point out that despite what you see in games, lasrifles win wars. Just because lasrifles suck at killing superhuman killing machines in power armor does not mean that they are bad weapons. You are shooting them at the wrong targets. The most common enemy the Imperium faces is lightly armored humans armed with lasguns or autoguns, NOT SPACE MARINES.

LOL, I love pearls before swine in the paper, AA. I didn't think to look for the website. The crocks are my favorite. They remind me of kobolds ;-)

And my dad is hooked on LFG, Rain

http://www.elgoonishshive.com/: Read or the owl will eat you.

http://www.commissionedcomic.com/index.php: The life and times of a South American artist named O. Also has a storyline based loosely on his DnD group. Updates daily, and he's never missed an update.

http://www.questionablecontent.net/: Contains actual plot, and some very well developed characters. Basically your typical 'bunch of mates' style webcomic, but has a very good streak of humour running through it. Updates weekdays, and note that the art style in the beginning bears almost no resemblance to the current strips.

http://www.odd-fish.net/: The adventures of Lovecraft the octopode and Howard the puffer fish. Started out as a gag strip, but a couple of recurring themes/plotlines are starting to emerge, it's not been going all that long.

http://www.thedevilspanties.com/: Another 'life of the artist' one. Not Satanic porn.

http://www.somethingpositive.net/: I have no words to describe this webcomic, you'll either like it or you won't.

I also read xkcd, Penny Arcade and CAD.

Here's some funny non-webcomic stuff...
The Best Page In The universe lots of bad language/attitude, but often very funny.

The Book of Ratings Insanely funny, but sadly, never updated anymore...I miss it so.

"A weekly comic. The manga-esque adventures of a group of students on a computer games technology course in Scotland."

Has some funny moments, and the drawing is of pretty good quality, but be warned: in the middle its nothing but comics about WOW... they get boring fast.
