I'm a bit surprised that there's no thread on tis topic yet. It appears so obvious.

Which other webcomics do you read, besides Earthsong?

Which comics can you recommend?

Do you read lots of different comics or just a handful?


I'm currently following 36 different webcomics. Naturally, I'd recommend all of them; after all, I read them because I like them.

Some of these need to be marked "For Mature Readers". I'll do this with coloured exclamation marks following the comic's title:
! Violence/Gore
! Nudity/Sexual Themes
! Bad Language
You've been warned.


Girl Genius !
The Dreamland Chronicles
The Phoenix Requiem
No Need for Bushido! !
Codename: Hunter !
Shadowgirls !!!
Xylia !
Rival Angels !
Garanos !
Key
Twilight Lady !
Flipside !!!
UnchaineD !
Circle versus Square !
Paradigm Shift !!!!!
Striptease !
The Road to Eden
The Dreamer
Strays
Of Snakes & Apples !!
Lizzy !!!!!
No Rest for the Wicked
Sarah Zero !!!
The Far Reaches
Nahast: Land of Strife
Doctor Insano
Gun Baby !!
Cwen's Quest

Fantasia Arks !

Undertow

Faust

Alright now, I just (don't ask me why) read about the first 65 pages of Twilight Lady, before I started clapping and shrieking. As it turns out, the comic contains the lovely charaters of Eleanor Rigby and Father McKenzie, both from the lovely song approriately entitled Eleanor Rigby. Ahhhh... i love the 'Dirt Poor Robins'

ANYWHO, I double the recommendation on No Rest For the Wicked- even though the comic most likely dead at this point. . . .

Mirf, you read Marry Me? Did you read their vampire comic "Last Blood"? That one's pretty good, though it's pretty gore/horror inspired...

I actually don't follow anything but Earthsong anymore. I used to have about 20 I followed, before I dropped the internet for a while. Now that I'm back, I'm just here, exclusively...

I know almost all of the ones you listed, but I only read (past tense) a handful. Now, I only follow these:

Earthsong
Crowfeathers
Lawn Darts (new, only five pages)
Requiem (by Sarah Ellerton)
Hereville - "The best comic about an 11-year-old troll-fighting Orthodox Jewish girl you'll read all day."

These are the ones I check weekly, not expecting an update, and my expectations are usually fulfilled: (And no, I'm not going to give you links to the marked ones. If you want to find them, I won't be responsible. The other two are already linked here.)

Vampirates !!!
Metanoia !!!
Kagerou !!!
Lackadaisy Cats
Family Man

Hmm, that's more than I thought... And my response to Lope's comment about not having this was, "But we do! But... not anymore. >.<" So yeah.

I'll put up my own list later on, because it keeps changing, but if it's the same Vampirates that I'm thinking of Asa, then it definitely needs a nudity warning as well as violence.

Squee only follows a select few regularly...a bunch that Squee dabbles in every couple months when Squee feels like it, but can't remember. These are just the select Smile

The Dreamland Chronicles
Applegeeks
Ctrl-Alt-Del
Penny Arcade (well, actually, Squee mainly follows this comic to read the blog posts and keep up-to-date on game industry, rather than because of the comic...only the very occasional comic is funny imho)
Order of the Stick
Earthsong (of course)

I edited it - it probably is, and I couldn't remember if it was bad or not. Also, Murphy's got a pretty dirty mouth too, as I recall.

I just found a new one today- FreakAngels. It's kind of a steampunk post-disaster story. Very, very professional, and I just devoured the archives in the last 1.5 hours. Partial nudity and language warning.

@ Tenshi: Yes I read Marry Me and also read... No Pink Ponies, but that one went on a hiatus. I'll be sure to check out Last Blood!
