Here they are, in order of importance.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- PhD Comic. In graduate school? Then this strip is for you.
- 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.
- Anders Loves Maria. Start here. Read to the end. It doesn’t get much better than this.
- Hijinks Ensue. Pretty sure that Wil Wheaton is subliminally involved with this particular strip, but I don’t have proof. Still. Excellent strip.
- Scut Monkey Comics. Unfortunately, the medical world doesn’t have the same sense of humor as the rest of the world.
- 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.
