    Default Fav. Comic Strip

    Hi all! I thought it would be fun to get a favorite comics thread going. I couldn't post it in the misc. discussion area though, cuz I'm a newbie.

    Post your favorite strip or a strip from your favorite artist.

    Anyways, here goes (I think):

    Well, a splendid web-comic is Ctr+Alt+Del. It has a storyline and is basically a graphic novel in a comic strip format. Much better than the recycled to death, zombie corpses of the classic comics.

    Cool store, bro! I want some ham.
    No ham, pepsi.
    They make deli slices of frozen pepsi now? Awesome!
    You also need to purchase a small freezer for storage of your pepsi.
    It runs on batteries. You'll need a few.
    Uhh, I guess I won't have pepsi then. Do you have change for a twenty?

    Haha I love that comic strip, I read the updates every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Although, I sort of miss the standalone video game jokes, that seem to be increasingly disappearing from the circulation :(

It is therefore necessary for a prince to know well how to use both the beast and the man.

    Yeah unfortunately the gaming took a back-seat and I guess that is one of the reasons that I stopped reading it.

    There are several webcomics that I love and it would be difficult to choose just one.

    First on my list would be Schlock Mercenary by Howard Taylor. (Sci-fi Mercenary comic) The author has been updating this daily since June, 12 2000 so there is a massive archive. Latest book published has been nominated for this years Hugo Awards. (age 13+)

    Second on my list would be Girl Genius by Phil & Kaja Foglio. (Steampunk/Mad Science) Updates every Monday, Wednesday,and Friday. The comic has also recently been nominated for this years Hugo Awards.

    Really? I never got to that point yet. I began reading with the first strip in the archive. Hey, I don't care that much about the game references, as long as the comic remains so computer-nerdy. But if it is not, having degenerated to a mere life story, then I suppose I would not like it.

    Oh God,


    I swear on my honour that I fell stepped out of my chair and fell into a fit of uncontrolled laughter. No, I am not kidding. I am serious. It has been months since I laughed with such intensity. Thank you, AVSM, you made my day.

    Bah, the genius of Calvin and Hobbes stands alone.



    By the way, the above comic seems to have "borrowed" the idea from a C&H strip from "There's Treasure Everywhere", page 149. I'm trying to find the strip online for your viewing pleasure.

    Calvin and Hobbes is awesome but like all the greats it has been on the decline.

    Discovered Sinfest about four years ago and haven't stopped. It has its hit and miss moments like some of the Devil and Buddha mini-series and some 4th wall issues but this is one of my faves.

    Garfield by far, but they started to get really boring. I enjoy CTRL+Alt+Del as well, along with Calvin and Hobbes too.

    Been to:

    Swords Made of Letters - 1938. The war is looming in France - and Alexandre Reythier does not have much time left to protect his country. A novel set before the war.

    A Painted Shield of Honour - 1313. Templar Knights in France are in grave danger. Can they be saved?
