Ten Comics You Should Be Reading

Here they are, in order of importance.

  1. Questionable Content – Far and away my favorite web comic.  I have stayed up hours to see the latest strip and I have yet to find a better strip.  But, you have to start at the beginning.  If you start reading the most recent comics, you’ll ruin the surprises.  There is a lot of important stuff that happens between A and Z, so start in the beginning and read through to the ending.  The indie rock references are often lost on me – mad props to Jacques for an excellent strip, regardless of what the Twitter cadre seems to think.
  2. Penny Arcade.  If you’ve been a hardcore gamer since SVGA was a big deal, you’ll totally dig this.  You don’t need to start at the beginning, but it’s cool to see how their art has changed over the years.
  3. Looking For Group.  As a recovering WoW addict, this strip has a very special place in my heart.  If you aren’t quite ready to look into the mirror, be careful.  This place will have you in the PvP queue in a heartbeat, if you aren’t ready.  If you ever rolled a ‘lock, you’ll know all about it.
  4. The true test….XKCD…Strips probably lost on most people, unless you have a physics or math degree.  Even then, references can be so esoteric that you have to retreat to Wikipedia to get a handle on.  Highlight of my Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
  5. PhD Comic.  In graduate school?  Then this strip is for you.
  6. Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal.  Another awesome strip.  For some reason, I find this strip ridiculously addictive.  Don’t start reading at #1 unless you have an entire weekend available to read through all of them.
  7. Anders Loves Maria.  Start here.  Read to the end.  It doesn’t get much better than this.
  8. Hijinks Ensue.  Pretty sure that Wil Wheaton is subliminally involved with this particular strip, but I don’t have proof.  Still.  Excellent strip.
  9. Scut Monkey Comics.  Unfortunately, the medical world doesn’t have the same sense of humor as the rest of the world.
  10. PVP Online.  More of the same, PvP comic goodness that makes me wonder why I bailed on a life of a gamer for a hardcore student.
Anyway.  Seriously folks, try your hand at the first 15-20 comics of each of these – you won’t be sorry.
