((I think this goes here?))

What sort of webcomics do you read? Feel free to list titles! <3

I used to like Homestuck but the fandom became annoying. I quit as soon as my schoolmates started telling me to read HS when I was one of the first three people to read it and share it with others to begin with.
I actively read TJ and Amal (http://tjandamal.com/) (a few sexual scenes but I love the story), Always Raining Here (http://alwaysraininghere.com/), Olympus Overdrive (http://www.olympusoverdrive.com/), and Zoophobia (http://www.zoophobiacomic.com/).

For a while I read a TLK fanfiction comic on dA, it was excellent, and I never did finish it. Gonna have to do it sometime. :P

Also, I LOVE Super Effective! Such a great comic, also need to finish it, or at least as much as has been uploaded. SO MUCH NEED.

Edit: Super Effective finished, WOO

Super Effective? I might have to check that out! <3 Thanks!

There was this one comic by Tamberella on dA that I really liked, but updates on it are slow :c

I'm sure most people have already heard of lackadaisy but its one I really enjoy. There are a ton of others I've read but most of them have stopped production.

recently I've been getting into Unsounded and its really enjoyable so far. Self aware zombies are always a win.

I'm gonna check in as a token Homestuck (http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6) fan. Anyone who's been on Tumblr has likely run into the fandom or seen something related to it. It's a really long, but pretty damn intense, ridiculous, surreal and just all around awesome webcomic that has been running for about 4 and a half years. Its one of those stories that you can't really explain and just suggest people to go and give it a try themselves.

Some people have trouble getting into it because the first act is slow, but the pace ramps up once you get past it and you'll be glad you stuck with it once it does.

Beyond the Western Deep (http://www.westerndeep.net/2011/12/13/comingsoon/) is a totally jivin' comic that you should all read, yo.

I love me some TJ and Amal, man.

I read:
Gunnerkrigg Court (http://gunnerkrigg.com/) (Fairly well-known fantasy webcomic. Magic meets technology in a boarding school.)

Vattu (http://rice-boy.com/vattu/index.php) (Current project of Evan Dahm, who wrote Rice Boy (http://www.rice-boy.com/see/) and Order of Tales and is wonderful. Fantasy stories set in a world entirely of Dahm's own invention. Gorgeous.)

Zebra Girl (http://www.zebragirl.net/) (Which is currently on break, but the archives are well worth a trawl. Girl gets in the way of her friends messing around with magic, turns into a demon. Story and art both start somewhat shaky, but go somewhere beautiful as the author improved.)

Love Me Nice (http://www.lovemenicecomic.com/) (Toons working in showbiz, in a world a la Roger Rabbit.)

Awkward Zombie (http://www.awkwardzombie.com/) (Fun expressions. Video games.)

Manly Guys Doing Manly Things (http://thepunchlineismachismo.com/) (More fun expressions, video games, and more machismo jokes than you'd want to shake a stick at.)

I also occasionally go back to look sorrowfully at The Meek (http://www.meekcomic.com/), like a dog waiting for its owner to return. Author is super busy, but man, man, just look at it. LOOK AT IT.

I'm a huge fan of Lackadaisycats. So much in fact my character wears pretty much the same attire as Mordecai. Not because "lolherp I am badaz", but because I think his outfit is the most common one in the upper class of 1920's, a good generalization.

Another I'm quite fond of is Romantically Apocalyptic. (http://romanticallyapocalyptic.com/0) Great art with photoediting and funny writing makes it well worth the read. Stunning visuals. It is not furry.

Zoophobia (http://www.zoophobiacomic.com/Zoophobia/?p=170) swept me away with it's unique art style and lovely characters. A kind of a Alice in Wonderland type of story.

Then is a webcomic I like a lot. It's called Dreamkeepers (http://www.dreamkeeperscomic.com/). The webcomic spans hundreds of pages and features a ton of likeable characters, each with their own distinct personality. It revolves around a bunch of orphans and a girl who's effectively a prisoner of a high status skyscraper apartment. Being a child of a mayor (I think) doesn't allow room for errors, which this character is full of so she's locked away.
The actual comic is also 10/10, available as a physical copy.

I could go on for some time about webcomics, but I'll only list a few favourites here.

As an example of strong writing we have of course, Dinosaur Comics (http://www.qwantz.com/index.php). Every strip (5 days a week) uses the same crappy clipart but every strip manages to differentiate itself from the rest. Frankly I dont know how Ryan North does it.

Then the magic of Gunshow (http://gunshowcomic.com/)! Drawn and written in the inimitable style of K.C. Green it always manages to amuse. Most of it is either oneshots or short stories, but sometimes he'll attempt something darker like 'Graveyard Quest'.

Hark, a vagrant! (http://www.harkavagrant.com/) should need no introduction. Kate Beaton has a wonderful art style, knows her history, and goodness me that humour oh mai. If you archive binge on any of these please make it this one, you'll laugh and learn history at the same time! Forcing things you needed to know out of your brain because that is how brains work now.

Next is Wondermark (http://wondermark.com/), an illustrated jocularity. David Malki takes old Victorian style artings and repurposes them for to make a funny on you. It has a consistent standard of awesome/funny that'll keep you entertained for hours, the alt-text alone is usually funnier than most other webcomics.

As for comics with actual plot there's The Adventures of Dr. Mc Ninja (http://drmcninja.com/). He's a ninja who's also a doctor, his sidekick is a tween bandito with the most excellent mustache grown through sheer willl, has a goriila named Judy as a secretary, and once waged war on Ronald McDonald. Go read this.

There was a time that I read several webcomics (somewhere close to 20) but in the past few years I've whittled it down quite a lot. The only ones I read consistently now are Housepets and XKCD. I've not been as impressed with Gunnerkrigg Court of late.

I don't follow many webcomics, as inevitably even if I add one to my RSS reader I come to ignore it within a matter of weeks. My favorite is probably Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal (http://www.smbc-comics.com/?id=3043#comic).

Another would be PHD Comics (http://www.phdcomics.com/comics/archive.php?comicid=1620). I don't need to go looking for XKCD because inevitably I'll see every new strip in at least five random places within a week of it going online.

My suggestion on Homestuck is to just ignore the fans :I I understand why you hate them, but I don't think they should keep you from enjoying the comic. I mean, even Hussie hates them >:I They're pretty bad. But the story is awesome!

Ava's Demon (http://www.avasdemon.com/)! The art is gorgeous and it's such a cute story! Although it's still only in the beginning parts.

Also, xkcd (http://xkcd.com/) is pretty great. Computer and science knowledge always helps but is not mandatory to have fun with it.

Homestuck is a comic I really enjoy. I avoid the fandom like the plague, though.

Prequel is a great comic! Seconding Awkward Zombie upthread, too.

I'll have to check out some of these when I have time. Zoophobia for sure!

I enjoy Romantically Apocalyptic. Every page is amazing artwork, it has a great story line, and its incredibly funny.

I also like Poppy O'Possum. It has cute artwork and so far i love the story telling.

Contributing to the whole Homestuck thing...It's really worth a read, Andrew Hussie (the creator) is a really good story teller and doesn't leave any plot holes behind, he somehow always comes back to fill them in if there are any.

I think the key is to find the RIGHT people within the fandom. I have been fortunate enough to run into and befriend some great Homestuck fans who aren't batshit (heh what I did there) insane. There is no denying that there has been some I have really disliked and even put me off being involved with Homestuck for a while. But if you are truly interested in the comic, don't just listen about the fandom and decide "well shit this must be awful" because you could be missing out.

Oh, to add, I really enjoyed Ruby Quest (http://nepeta.mozai.com/Ruby_Quest/) if that counts as a comic? Same with the ongoing Nan Quest!

Vae
01-06-2014, 04:43 AM
I like Homestuck, but I think the pacing in it is horrible. Even in the "serial" format that Hussie talks about, there are just pages and pages and pages and pages of absolutely nothing happening.
I also think that the humor is sometimes a detriment to the bigger story. It's not bad by any means to put humor in the comic, but a lot of times it just comes off as really forced an inappropriate with what's going on.


Some of the other things I read are:

- Drowtales (http://www.drowtales.com/). Was originally a comic about DnD elves that took a wildly different turn when the author decided to completely reboot it into its own thing. I really like the art and story.

- DMFA. (http://www.missmab.com/) Just a fun comic with fun characters. It's also furry.

- Slightly Damned. (http://www.sdamned.com/) Another fun comic with fun characters. It's also kind of furry, but more on the side of animu furry.

- Writhe and Shine, which I would link to but the website is currently down for reasons I don't know. Mostly goth humor.

- MSPixel (http://mspixel.blogspot.com/), if it counts. Mass Effect parody, although the author's stated that she might do other games, as well.


I also read Awkward Zombie and Manly Guys, but those were mentioned, so I didn't feel like linking them.

xkcd has nothing on Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal (http://www.smbc-comics.com/).

I've kinda been taken in by Gunnerkrigg Court (http://gunnerkrigg.com/) lately, too. Totally worth it just for the parts with Coyote (http://gunnerkrigg.com/?p=502) in them.

I just started reading Lackadaisy. I'm already in love. I'm pressed that not only is the artwork excellent, but She's a pretty talented writer. I've laughed out loud many times already. Oh yeah. This is a good one.

I also read Problem Sleuth and Homestuck, but I'm a little behind in HS. My roommate tells me the next HS update will be to the very end. Pretty exciting. I love HS because of how fucking grand it is. It's just impressive to read.

Ah Romantically Apocalyptic, I haven't read that in a while. It's good, I should read get back to reading it.

Right now I mainly read Awkward Zombie. (http://www.awkwardzombie.com/index.php) and Mokepon. (http://mokepon.smackjeeves.com/comics/458480/prologue/)

I also read Warrior U (http://warrior-u.com/?p=7) (thought it's on hiatus right now) and Ansem Retort. (http://www.ansemretort.org/ansemretort/index.html?comic=1) (Which hasn't updated in two years).

Yes :u The Gigapause. I'm kind of terrified to check in on the fandom and see how they're doing. I have the expectation that by the end of this hiatus anyone left who didn't already hate the Homestuck fandom will officially loathe it. Plus the final update will include over an entire act of material, so there will probably be several months of screams coming from the fandom just prodding the hatred of Homestucks.
But I'm excited to see what the final update will bring! <:

I do ignore them! I used to talk to a few of the crazies but not many. I love Homestuck regardless of the fandom. I just know that they're totally batshit and the rest of the world takes that as a comment on the work itself.

Another in the Homestuck column. I have just about all of the music. All of it. Nothing like syncing up a flash with the lossless version of the music file, especially Cascade (though Decend was also damn awesome, those were the two with names that I can easily remember since they're named the same as the songs).

Also XKCD, Gunnerkrigg Court, and Lackadaisy Cats.

A couple I haven't seen mentioned yet: Prequel (http://www.prequeladventure.com/) and Order of the Stick (http://www.giantitp.com/).

There are a whole bunch more I follow but I don't want to flood the thread with links :3

Problem Sleuth is so short compared to Homestuck :U It wasn't too long for me. It was pretty fun. Although literally half of the entire thing is trying to beat the Final Boss. :U Homestuck has a much more developed plot.

'Nother Homestuck here. Heh. ^^;
I also saw three others already mentioned that I also read (though need to catch up on), which would be Prequel, Skin Deep, and Ava's Demon.

However, the ones I am keeping up on would be:
Bittersweet Candy Bowl (http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/), which is a story involving anthro felines and canines in a high school setting. It actually brings up a lot of interesting topics that are very realistic considering it's about anthropomorphic animals. It has dealt with bullying, physical abuse from both family and in romantic relationships, depression, and just a whole mess of other things that contribute to all the drama that takes place between some of the characters. A few arcs have struck me very hard personally, as they are situations I've dealt with before.

Housepets (http://www.housepetscomic.com/), which is about, well... houespets. And all their shenanigans. It is kind of an AU type deal, where all the pets are able to talk to their and owners and stuff, but, it is very cute and also kinda heartwrenching on occasion (to be honest, I was shocked to see that no one seemed to have mentioned it here yet).

and finally, TwoKinds (http://twokinds.keenspot.com/index.php). It has some sexual moments on a occasion, but, you don't really get to see much of it. I feel it deals a lot with racism and kinda shows that it's pointless in a lot of cases, because you think something about someone and they can completely prove you wrong. So much character development is involved. Like, oh my god this comic makes me so happy in regards to its characters. <3

A lot of my favs have been metioned so far, so I'll toss in one that's fairly new and very good so far.

Poppy O'Possum (http://www.poppy-opossum.com/about/) Linked to the about page, cause the current front page is a giant spoiler.

I also read Gene Catlow (http://genecatlow.keenspot.com/d/20000717.html) (although the story progression has gotten irritatingly slow as of the past couple of years). This one is a furry comic, the main comic is PG, but he also does side things that are adult themed.

Sluggy Freelance (http://www.sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/970825) (really I'm just too invested in it to stop reading now...it's definitely had better days). This comic started in like...1999 or something like that and has until the last year or two had a very consistent schedule, so I would tread with care if you decide to start reading this one, you'll be stuck in the archives for a very very long time.

Three Panel Soul (http://threepanelsoul.com/) which isn't a story comic, it's more a weekly 3 panel comic that is generally amusing, makes jokes, or observations about things. Very cute art style.

Hotblood! (http://hotbloodcomic.com/post/61301867401) another fairly new comic, "A comic about Centaurs in the American West"

And Cucumber Quest (http://cucumber.gigidigi.com/) to name a few. This one is very cute and has lots of very bright colors.

There are others, but this seems like a long enough list as it is.

Oh I forgot to mention another one I only recently started reading. I'm not sure that it has a name, because the creator seems to be working on a multimedia setting with lots of stories, the page in general is called Floraverse (http://floraverse.com/), and the current story is called Seeds though. Some people may be familiar with it if they know of Purplekecleon, she recently decided to pursue her personal creations more and I'm rather enjoying her original work so far.

Ooh, gotta plug Foxena's Overlord (https://www.weasyl.com/submission/370698/isla-aukate-001) comic. A neat story, and she's got a RP forum set in the universe as well.

Man, Sluggy's still going? I can only imagine how convoluted the ongoing plot is now.

It's "coming to and end" so it's trying to tie up loose ends quite a lot now, but yeah...that could still take a good 5-10 years by my guesses lol.

I don't really read too many webcomics, but I finished Problem Sleuth, Bard Quest, and Jailbreak, and I was keeping up with Homestuck until sometime last year - I was thinking of going back and rereading the whole thing once it's finished. I've been considering reading Lackadaisy and Ava's Demon as well, but I'll probably put it off until Homestuck is done because I usually get kind of stressed if I start one thing before I finish another.

Ooh! I also really love A Softer World (http://www.asofterworld.com/) but it just effects in me this horrible, terrible combination of sobbing and hysterical laughter. I can't read it because it makes me feel so many emotions at once. But it's so great.

Zoophobia is the best:
http://www.zoophobiacomic.com/Zoophobia/?p=221

Anywho, besides Zoophobia, I read Brawl in the Family and Twokinds. Brawl in the Family is this funny Smash Bros. comic featuring various Smash Bros. and other Nintendo characters and their various everyday shenanigans. It's pretty funny.

As for Twokinds....Describing it is a bit difficult. It's a very anime-esque story based webcomic written by a teenager (at least he was a teenager when he first started on it). It's writing is....eh and the artwork is...eh, but its not bad and I've been told it improves. I enjoy it though, even with its silliness.

Oh I just remembered another comic that I'd forgotten about because it's been finished for a few years now.

Suburban Jungle (http://suburbanjungleclassic.com/?p=10) (linking to the first page, cause the final page has spoilers)

It's quite a fun little slice of life type of story.

I read Gunnerkrigg Court (http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/) almost exclusively. Have been keeping up with it for about 2 years now and it keeps getting better. Starts off really magical-girl-ish but then winds up being a fantastic combo of sci-fi and fantasy with many other elements. Also, a lesbian relationship later on that is adorable. :3

lorenith
01-28-2014, 02:40 AM
I think of Gunnerkrigg Court as probably one of the best webcomics out there at the moment. Not only is it quirky and fun, but it's also an amazing example of artistic growth.

Rico
01-28-2014, 03:48 AM
Yeah, I'm absolutely amazed at how much the art has improved in Gunnerkrigg.

Also my favorite character will always be Zimmy. Such an interesting character in both looks and concept, can't wait to see her develop even more.

...Also, a lesbian relationship later on that is adorable. :3

tbh I found it a bit A Very Special Episode-ish, but the few punchlines that Reynardine had were gold and made it all worth it.

I'm waiting until the next chapter to finish to continue reading because I can't stand being stuck in the middle of a plotline.

The webcomics I'm following at the moment are Paranatural, Ava's Demon, Floraverse, and Plume!

A couple people have mentioned ava's demon, and I have nothing to add haha. It's a gorgeous comic and I really love the story, so definitely check it out if you haven't already.

Paranatural (http://paranatural.net/) is definitely one of my favourites, and I've been following it since it began haha
"Paranatural is best described as “X-Men meets Ghostbusters except everyone’s twelve.” It’s a comedy/action comic about a group of middle school kids with ghostly superpowers fighting evil spirits and investigating paranormal activity in their hometown."
It's really dang funny, Zack has an amazing sense of humour. And he's a good storyteller to boot!

Plume (http://plumecomic.com/) is another one I've been following for a couple years now!
"Revenge is like a plume of black smoke. It seems tangible, but when you reach for it, you're grasping nothing but air."
"Plume is a story set in the Old West about a girl named Vesper Grey and her supernatural companion, Corrick. On their quest to recover her father's life work, they encounter new friends and new foes, and learn that the Wild West is anything but tame."

And lastly, Floraverse! I've been following PK's work for a very long time, so I remember her early flowercat works. She's come a loong way since then, and she recently returned to working on her Flora stuff.

The comic can be found here (http://floraverse.com), and it's in essence a series of short stories set in her world. The site isn't much to look at at the moment, but the comic itself is really dang goegeous, particularly ch2 of Seeds. Those blues!

But! Flora is not just a webcomic, it's also a group (http://floraverse.deviantart.com/).
One of the coolest parts of it all is that it is licensed under share-alike, meaning you can do whatever you like within the group as long as you use the same license. This includes making your own species, stories, stuff to sell, whatever!

I admit and sometimes regret that I read Bittersweet Candy Bowl. My high school period up until the very last bit of my senior year was incredibly boring, so reading about fictional cat and dog people having some good ol'-fashioned high school drama is pretty alright.

I find biblical fiction interesting so I also like reading Jack. Plus it's pretty fucked up and is a nice opposite to colorful cats in high school.

Back when it still updated my favorite webcomic was CheapThrills, but that's long since dead and it makes me sad. I hope the author comes back to revisit it sometime because it was a really nice, down-to-earth and gritty story basically following your average pothead teens and watching them grow, make mistakes, and learn. The art was also really great too.

Rico
01-29-2014, 06:18 PM
I miss Cheap Thrills a lot. I understand them leaving it but it was such a good comic that even notably ~anti-furry~ forums recommended it and mourned it being cancelled. :c

I reeeeaaally hope they get back to it someday because the story was a breath of cigarette smoke fresh air that offered something you just don't really see anymore? Like, it's not too hard to find webcomics like the other two I listed, or fantasy-based ones. It actually stood out without being ridiculous and I loved it for that. The characters were believable, not super-flawed or marysue like you find in a lot of other stories. They actually grow up and change from their experiences. The last page was a hell of a cliffhanger too. ]:

Since I read a lot in order to procrastinate, the list is long. I'm on Mangamagazine and a lot of the time the people there are telling you to read their comics.
I found it easier and nicer to meet the comic artists and read stuff that way. Usually a friend's webcomic will take precedence over any stranger any day so if my friends have webcomics, I'll stick to it and read it.
I go to a comic convention in my city called TCAF so there are dozens of new artists as well as long time artists (though I hate that this convention falls on the weekend after Free Comic Book Day... that's when items like the Iron Man special is 70% off... and Dr Who merch is 50-60% off... urgh)
But anyways the comics I read are these:
Teahouse (http://www.teahousecomic.com/), Star Fighter (http://starfightercomic.com/), Two Rooks (http://two-rooks.com/), Polterguys (http://www.mangamagazine.net/read-manga/Polterguys/1810/0/0?lang=en) (I met her too and asked her a TON of questions, then got my friend to buy her manga LOL I was broke from free Comic day since I bought too many Iron man things haha) and Always Raining Here (http://alwaysraininghere.com/) (since I met the artist and I thought she was pretty awesome as well.) I also read a buddy of mine's comic Buddy and Friend (http://buddyandfriend.com/).
And most of them I own physical copies of since internet is a major distraction of mine XD.

(http://strongfemaleprotagonist.com/issue-1/page-0/) I also keep track of True Magic (http://www.true-magic.com/view.php?id=1) and The Fox Sister, (http://thefoxsister.com/) but those have somewhat sporadic update schedules. If anyone likes their comics with a bit of Finnish mythology, a Redtail's Dream (http://www.minnasundberg.fi/comic/page00.php) has fantastic art and a completed storyline (and the artist has a new post-apocalyptic comic, Stand Still. Stay Silent. (http://www.sssscomic.com/))

I read quite a few but I'll post my personal favorites here.

The Dreamland Chronicles (http://www.thedreamlandchronicles.com/) is probably one of the only 3D comics I read. It's just so well done and looks like stills from a movie. I just hope it does get turned into a movie eventually.

Schlock Mercenary (http://www.schlockmercenary.com/) has been updated everyday since 2000 so good luck reading all the archives. There is just so much there and the art drastically improves in that time period. It's insane. The author seems like a cool guy also.

Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. (http://www.biblecomic.net/) The artwork and storytelling are wonderful. It takes place in the afterlife, somewhat, and seems to be just getting started with the actual plot. The creature designs are what drew me in at first but stayed for the story.

Trying Human (http://www.tryinghuman.com/) is about aliens and alien abduction. Pretty darn entertaining and quite an interesting take on the subject. The artist just redrew all the old pages so it's worth rereading.

Here are a few of my favorites from my bookmarks

Seconding A Redtail's Dream (http://www.minnasundberg.fi/artd.php) and Stand Still. Stay Silent. (http://www.sssscomic.com/) The artist's work is beautiful! She draws and inks all her pages by hand, then adds colors on the computer. The result is each page being stand-alone work of art. Redtail is a finished comic, SSSS has just recently begun and will be ongoing for a while.
Skin Deep (http://www.skindeepcomic.com/), a fun comic where Mythical creatures are real and are hiding in plain site alongside humans. Ongoing comic.
Boxer Hockey (http://boxerhockey.fireball20xl.com/?id=1), a strange comic following a team who plays the sport Boxer Hockey. The beginning pages are 8years old, but his current quality is reflected on the sites banner. The comic is currently on hiatus.
Gone with the Blastwave (http://www.blastwave-comic.com/index.php?p=comic&nro=1), an apocalyptic comedy. The updates are when-ever-the-artist-feels-like-it, but hey, the art is fantastic.

Back in the old days(5 or so years ago) I used to read a furry webcomic called "Two Kinds" It was really my introduction into the furry community. When I stopped reading it, it was about 500 pages, but I haven't checked it in yeeaarss.
I'm actually thinking about looking it up again. Hopefully the artist didn't give up on it, because around the time I stopped (I finished what'd been published) the artist was having some difficulties.

I've got several that I like. (I'll have to post just the links with the names, though, as I don't know how to fix the link so that you see the name rather than the actual link.)

Anyway, one of them has an actual website where it's posted, and I think that the others are on DA and/or FA. The first that I mentioned is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles one, set when the original Turtles are in their mid-thirties, and there's a fifth Turtle (the newbie of the team) named Renoir, and the others are My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic ones.

(There were also a couple of SWAT Kats ones out there, but I've kinda lost track of them over the past few years. I'll add them if I find them again, though.)

(Same goes for the Biker Mice ones.;))

Anyway, here are my fave Web-Comics:

MNT Gaiden by Tigerfog: Set in the near future when the original Green Teens are now in their thirties, and have been joined by a mysterious newcomer Turtle teen by the name of Renior:
http://www.mntgaiden.com/wordpress/comic/mntg-prologue-01/
(You have to star with the Prologue, or else the whole 23 (so far) chapter story won't make a lick of sense.;))
(Actual website URL: http://www.mntgaiden.com/wordpress/)

The others, all My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic ones, are as follows:

Metal-Kitty's (DA)/Metal's (FA) MLP_Project Comic (doesn't really have a solid name (yet, anyway), but if it did, it would either be The Dark Crown, or Red Eclipse (the title of Chapter 3(/)), which is on both Deviantart and FurSAffinity:
DA link: http://metal-kitty.deviantart.com/gallery/39490537?offset=264
FA link: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8052889
(Since FA doesn't have Gallery-folders like DA does, this is Page 1 of the comic. Just follow the links to read the rest of the comic, okay?)

ArofaTamahn's Friendship is Magic: The Night the Magic Died:
DA Link: http://arofatamahn.deviantart.com/gallery/38603698?offset=0
FA Link: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8566064/
(Again, with the FA link for this, start at Page 1, then just follow the links to the other pages)

joelashimself's MLP: The Forgotten Element:
http://joelashimself.deviantart.com/art/MLP-FIM-The-forgotten-element-Prologue-1-300692566
(Again, start at Page 1 of the Prologue, and follow the links to each page)

GatesMcCloud's Cutie Mark Crusaders 10k:
http://gatesmccloud.deviantart.com/gallery/44585809?offset=72

Aaaaaaand that's all that I can think of for now. If I run across any of my other favorites, I'll amend this post with them.

So, til next time, enjoy.

Ooo webcomics! I've looked at some of the posts here, and I know GC has been linked to, but I don't know if the rest of these have. So I'll link my other favorites.

First off, everyone should read Delilah Dirk (http://www.delilahdirk.com/). Once upon a time, the creator Tony Cliff had the entire first graphic novel available to read online. Now he's only offering the first couple chapters to encourage sales of the comic. I've read the whole thing, so in my opinion, if you like the first few chapters, you'll love the rest. Pro art, pro storytelling, awesome characters.

I also love, love, love, love The Order of the Stick (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots.html). I've never even played D&D, but this comic is still my favorite out there due to its strong story and compelling characters. I've followed it for years.

My second favorite is probably Bad Machinery (http://www.scarygoround.com/), by John Allison. The guy has a ton of comics all set in the same universe, and right now he's working on a spin-off arc called "Bobbins." The main comic, "Bad Machinery," focuses on a bunch of plucky British kids who solve mysteries.

I also regularly follow Gunnerkrigg Court, Ava's Demon, Cucumber Quest (http://cucumber.gigidigi.com/), Earthsong (http://www.earthsongsaga.com/), and Octopus Pie (http://www.octopuspie.com/). I like GC and CQ, though I feel like they've been slow lately. Ava's Demon I follow for the gorgeous art, but the story isn't actually that interesting to me. Similarly, I still keep up with Earthsong even though it doesn't have my interest anymore; I just want to know what happens. I feel like we're so close to the end. And I hate all of the characters in Octopus Pie (except Marek, who is probably being Put on a Bus in this arc). But I'm hooked on this dumb comic! I have to know what happens to these unlikeable character augh >:|

I also love Lackadaisy, but its the kind of comic I ignore for months due to its slow update schedule, and then I binge-read it when I remember it exists.

I tried reading Homestuck several times in the past several years, but I could never get through the first arc (?) or develop any attachment to the characters. Everyone had always told me "wait until the 3rd arc" or whatever, but it's just too slow. I also have a sneaking suspicion that the window of enjoyment has closed (in other words, I'm probably too old for this comic by now).

Anyway, now to dive into the rest of the thread to see if I can find any new comics to read! :)

I read far too many webcomics. I'm also the writer/artist of one that's been updating online since 2009, called Fera.

Fera (http://angelk.at/fera/): it's an LGBT romance tale, set in a world of myth and adventure. Three girls set out on a quest to rescue their mentor, finding a world of love, loss, and themselves along the way. May contain traces of cat girl.

Webcomics that I read regularly include;

Girl Genius (http://www.girlgeniusonline.com) - steam punk, mad scientists, a talking cat, monsters, and the lost heir of the most powerful of those mad scientists, off on a strange adventure to retake her family home whilst pitted against the Wulfenbach empire.

Misfile (http://www.misfile.com/) - a mix up in the celestial filing depot causes one girl to lose the last 2 years of her life and end up back in highschool rather than off to her dream college, and one guy to wake up as a girl. It's got a good mix of comedy and emotional moments, and plenty of drag racing too.

Mysteries of the Arcana (http://mysteriesofthearcana.com/) - LGBT comic, two girls exploring a multiverse based on tarot, with the help of a dog boy, robot, and a pile of blue goo.

Star Power (http://www.starpowercomic.com/) - a sci-fi super hero series, after an accident a researcher on a spacestation absorbs the "Star Power" and becomes the last living Star Sentinel, with the usual array of bounty hunters, arch villains, and robot creatures from other dimensions.

El Goonish Shive (http://www.egscomics.com/) - a group of highschool friends deal with life, love, magic, morphing, anime style martial arts, furries, aliens... the list really does go on to be honest.

Love Me Nice (http://www.lovemenicecomic.com/) - essentially a less PG version of Roger Rabbit, where toons are actors working for the big Hollywood studios. Follows the children of an ageing cartoon super star as they have to take on the family business and keep their fathers image intact as he goes into retirement.

Footloose (http://www.footloosecomic.com/) - a fantasy comic that plays with narrative theory, in a fantasy world where being a protagonist is considered an affliction, and filled with plenty of mythical creatures, the cast attend a dojo to learn how to be the best heroes and sidekicks they can be... by practising the ancient martial art of kung shoe.

I notice that Strays (http://www.straysonline.com/) has yet to be mentioned :3
Super cute webcomic. Semi furry too.
Plot Synopsis:
Meela is a young, orphaned lupian (a race of people with wolf-like features) who is struggling to survive on her own. A chance encounter on less than pleasant terms teams her up with Feral, another lupian who happens to be a mute as well as one of the best mercenaries in the land, and who is not quite so welcoming of her forced company as she would like to believe. Fun, danger and plenty of humorous situations follow the two on their wayward adventures, however the seemingly peaceful world they reside in is not quite the paradise that its reputation makes it out to be. When a taboo topic and a dark secret collide, it may unravel their already tattered lives and force each of them to face the reality of the truth, requiring each to make decisions that could alter their lives forever.
