Sinfest

Postby Ishindri » Fri Aug 22, 2008 1:59 am UTC

http://www.sinfest.net/ (may not be safe for work)

I discovered it a few days ago, and have spent most of the intervening time indulging in an Archive Binge (well, and playing Morrowind too). I quite like it, I get a very Calvin and Hobbes-esque feeling from it (if much more adult). What do you all think?

The updates are daily, and all high quality. Of course, the Sunday ones are best, with the full color and everything. I'm surprised it doesn't have a bigger following. It's definitely worth adding to your RSS feeds.

The confusing one. I think you should pick a different fence.

I like Sinfest; especially the dog and cat ones...

his art has remained inhumanly consistent and sometimes he takes a couple months off but otherwise he updates every day exactly on schedule.

Tatsuya Ishida is the ninja of the webcomic world. His work is great but only a select few know it ever happened.

I just found Sinfest thanks to a comic posted in one of the other threads (I think it was the Women's thread) since then I have binged myself on the archives and I have made it through over 800 of the comics already. My favorite ones are usually the ones with God mocking Satan, or Slick and 'Nique questioning God. The four strip "High" segment (starts on 08/02/2006) I found hilarious, having... um... "known" a few people who smoke.

I love this comic. Probably my favorite non-XKCD webcomic.

Also, it updates more often than I can check it, so I get multiple comics at once. SCORE!

It was the first webcomic I ever read. Now I'm reading 30+ of them. But it was the first.

I love sinfest. Percy the cat and Monique are probably my favorite characters, cause I can see a bit of myself in each of them. It's a delightful social commentary! I love the god hand puppet things! Whee!

It's great, and I took the time to go through the whole archive (though not without some webscraping). I now read it daily.

Wow, this comic is incredibly cute. I've only read a few, but I already love the characters. And yes, very big Calvin and Hobbes vibe. I need to read the archives, but it probably has three times the amount of content that Achewood has (and that took me forever to read).

It's definitely adultish, but not what you'd expect from the name.

I find this comic incredibly condescending. Sorry.

I love Sinfest. I only read it about once every month, and everytime I go back to read the updates it makes me feel a little bit happier. It's developed more of a political edge over the last year or so, without that feeling like a bad thing. But yea, I highly recommend reading it, it's wicked awesome, even if you disagree with its politics it's quite funny.

I like Sinfest. It's one of the few comics I try to read every day. But in recent weeks/months his work has been very feministic. Which isn't bad but it's just not something that works all the time, just as xkcd works really well because it's not math jokes all the time.

I do love the whole Fuchsia/bookworm budding romance, though. It's very touching without being overly sappy.
