THE ONLY GOOD
COMICS ON THE INTERNET
I like webcomics. You probably figured that out
when I started my third one. There's nothing I
enjoy more than sitting down with a big piece of
marmite on toast and reading through the archives
of a good webcomic. The only problem is that the
good webcomics are all hidden behind pile upon
pile of testicle sweat masquerading as
hate having to roam around the internet looking
for a good comic to read. I find one, I read the
latest strip, I read the first strip, decide it's
lame and move on. Sometimes this labour can go on
for some time without me finding anything that
grabs me by the nuts and swings me around the
room. So for the benefit of future generations, I
have decided to form this list, the list of the Only Good
Comics On The Internet (coloured red because it's so damn
great), an ongoing project. You won't find this
list cluttered by dire author insertion sprite
comics - this is only the stuff I personally
would want to spend an evening digesting. Keep in
mind that this is only my opinion, but also keep
in mind that I'm always right. If you'd like to
submit a webcomic to consider for this list, then
drop me a line to the usual address. If you recommend a
comic I don't like, I won't hold it against you,
although I will do everything in my power to see
your family shamed and your body torn to pieces.
comic will also be assessed via the Six Webcomic
Cliches, as first referred to in my webcomic update that I understand caused
some people on the Sluggy Freelance forums to
completely miss the point and get cross. Please
note that having the cliches doesn't make a comic
bad - they wouldn't be on this list if that was
the case - they're just, from an academic point
of view, intriguing in their frequency.
summarise the Six Webcomic Cliches:
Insertion (AI); this could be either a
thinly disguised main character, a completely not
disguised main character, or an appearance by the
author so they can address the audience directly,
or to act in the capacity of a god-like being.
Inventor Character (MIC);
Little Mascot Character (ALM);
Characters Are Hot (FCH);
Characters Are Violent (FCV);
Characters Are 'Straight' (FCS); as in,
they observe the wacky antics of the wacky male
characters and respond by rolling their eyes in
an exasperated manner. And getting violent.
without further ado, let's get onto the list.
Stars mark the ones I REALLY like.
