Okay... a lot of people seem to like CAD. I used to read that, and then I found xkcd and Penny Arcade within two days of each other. Come on, people CAD is not funny.

Meh, I still read it. What you find funny is not necessarily what I will find funny. I do not find him consistently funny, but there are enough laughs to make me continue to check it every now and then.

I realise that many people find vgcats to be intensely amusing; I do not. This does not mean I will tell them to stop reading it.

Also, I checked the rules link that William posted. Most of those seem fairly legitimate, the only one I don't agree with is necroposting, because that can be funny, but I can see how it might get necessary. None seem unreasonable.

Ah! I can't believe that no one has posted Simulated Comic Product yet.

It's not very well known, but I think that the author has a truly brilliant mind. His strips range from hilarious, to ingenious, to though provoking, to just a little sad. I highly recommend it.

Yep, it has been, and I've bookmarked it. Quite poignant stuff.

I tried to check out CAD, but it had too many words, and I've had this song in my head (okay, playing in the background) for 36 minutes now, which makes it hard.

Templar, Arizona is a damn good strip. Spike's brushwork and characterization are both fantastic.

I don't think anyone has mentioned KCGreen's comics yet.

[/url=www.DELETED.com]Droop[/url] His main comic at #660 so far. Take an afternoon some time and read all of them. You're bound to find some gems in there.

[/url=www.DELETED.com]Horribleville[/url] His newer comic all about his life. Definately read all of these too. Doosty is the best cat ever.

I LOVE webcomics.

Someone already mentioned Order of the Stick (D&D spoofs ftw!), and Misfile (for anyone that loves racing). So I'll just second those. Plus SomethingPositive.

College Roomies from Hell
about college students that get mutated, have to fight the devil, and survive college. the story line is really good. The art really develops to be pretty (check current comics) although it starts off not so great as most long comics have.

El Goonish Shive
Random name for an AWESOME webcomic. Great story. Highschool kids, dealing with Genderswitching Rayguns, Aliens, Supernaturals, Magic, and just being highschool kids.

Flipside
It's about a Nympho-Jester and her lesbian Sword-Dancing lover as they go through a world with magic. Um, and some kid that likes to cheat at cards.

Kevin and Kell
It's about a Rabbit that runs his own Internet Service Provider, and his life being married to a wolf, and their children. It's awesome.

Least I Could Do
Rayne is a guy that likes sex. A lot. And these are his tales. (The art starts off badly but ends up really nice, and the stories are fun and full of sex, but not porny, althuogh some might be NSFW. They aren't Sexy-Loser like.)

There are also some more that I love, plus some that I just think are worth sharing. But I don't want to overwhelm you guys too quickly!

oh and I recommend using http://www.thewebcomiclist.com to keep track of your webcomics if you're like me and have a lot you enjoy reading. It keeps track of them for you and tells you when they're updated so you don't have to try and remember all their complicated schedules. (plus if some comic hasn't updated in months, it will still tell you when it finally updates, so you don't have to worry!).

It's not really a "funny" comic, but this is amazing:
http://www.lackadaisycats.com/

It's basically a comic about a 1920s speakeasy. With anthropomorphic cats. And it's really good.

I don't think it's been mentioned, but my first webcomic was Dominic Deegan
http://www.dominic-deegan.com/

More recently, I've started reading Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal and Perry Bible Fellowship.

Also, the Red vs. Blue site has a comic which can be a laugh occasionally.
http://rvb.roosterteeth.com/home.php

Others include Yosh! and twokinds.

edit: El Goonish Shive is good, if a little unpredictable with the updates.

Blank Label Comics has some definite awesomeness. In particular Sheldon and Starslip Crisis are favorites of mine. I rather like over compensating and company.

For some that aren't humorous unicornjelly is amazing. 9th elsewhere and Mindmistress are good too.

The day they did that Randy posted a link on the main page, talking about how he'd taken down one webcomic, and it sparked a discussion on a webcomics war here in the fora.

One of my favorites, but not well known at all. It has exactly 1000 strips, and is officially finished.

http://oneoverzero.comicgenesis.com/d/20000827.html is the first one, you can go from there. I warn you, it starts out great, and by the 50th, it gets even better and better from there on out.

These are the comics I read daily (Albeit, not all of them update on the same day. I'm simply to lazy to memorize when, so I just look at them all):

DELETED x8

Ctrl+Alt+Del
Cyanide & Happiness
VG Cats
Penny Arcade
xkcd
Perry Bible Fellowship
Something Positive
Punch an' Pie
Looking For Group
Least I Could Do

I know some of them have been mentioned, but I was too lazy to edit them, save for converting them to BBCode.

These ones are good as well, though they've finished already:
DELETED x2

Queen of Wands
Concerned

> We've got rules, and even announcements about rules. You should try reading them someday (either the rules or the announcement about the rules, would be acceptable).
Fine. Is that better?

Much, thank you.

what was that one comic about tech support or something? anyway...

I really don't read many webcomics commonly(that was useless..) but...

This is by far the funniest one I have seen(surpassing xkcd in my book) http://realitymachine.net
This is actually done by a user here...dunno...my friends love it too(not to)


(sometimes, I like to talk in parentheses...Steven Wright is hilarious)

edit:
Pearly Infinite, you need to read the rules first, you must post 10 times before you can post links(This doesn't count signatures and WWW profile link, those are OK..)

Actually, we do our best to edit sig links until the user has 10 posts.

I'm surprised that it hasn't been mentioned yet: Sluggy Freelance.

It's updated daily and usually follows a story arc of some kind, though the author tries to put in a punchline each day. It's also been around for nearly a decade (anniversary is next month), so you have plenty of archives to read through.

I hope it didn't descend into crazy tomato throwing. Webcomic drama happens so quickly sometimes :(

Also, no-one has mentioned Cat and Girl? (no link because I'm a good boy who totally reads the rules). Travesty.
Errant Story is also worth a look if you're into fantasy things, but the update schedule and pacing make for a very slowly evolving story.
I do keep an eye out for comics which are about different subjects, so Graff, which is a webcomic about graffiti is pretty neat. To me anyway.

<edit> Wow, how did I manage to miss the great big ALL CAPS on that thread? No-one will ever know that I was confused!
...Except you, me, and anyone else who reads this thread.

If I mentioned Cat and Girl, can I also mention Donation Derby, which is a journal comic that exists on the site but I actually think deserves to be thought of as a separate entity in and of itself (...keeping on topic see)

The websnark, for meta-webcomic criticism and links.
Ghastly's ghastly comic, and his buddy tang.
Monkey Law is good and obscure.
That one with Joel and Damien and Beefsteak - I'll have to edit.
Filthy lies.
Some of these update rarely or never.

People have already mentioned Least I could do, Penny Arcade,
Sinfest. These are pretty much my daily reads, linked at my blog
http://vark.blogspot.com, one of those blogs no-one reads, but it's useful to me as a portal.

Edit: I forgot to mention friendly hostility, which is the current incarnation of what was boy meets boy, and also dex lives, went on hiatus years ago but still good.

Tailsteak is one I found just today. http://www.tailsteak.com/archive.php?num=402

My own imitation webcomic,
http://www.stripcreator.com/comics/arbi
is not funny and rarely worth reading; its the sort of thing only my friends would read, except i don't actually have friends, but it's a useful creative outlet for me.

Not updated anymore, but Concerned is a sweet Half-Life 2 comic created with Garry's Mod. It's about this happy guy, Gordon Frohman, who's completely oblivious to everything. Especially the horrors going on around him.
