Is there a particular webcomic you are a follower of? Do you know of an obscure, visited-by-three-people-a-day webcomic that you think is totally awesome, and would like to share it with the world at large?

Personally, aside from occasional forays into xkcd, my webcomic of choice would be Brian Clevinger's 8 Bit Theater. If you haven't heard of this one, and at one point in your life have preoccupied yourself with role playing, Final Fantasy and other video games, sci-fi and other nerdy stuff like that, give it a chance. There is a good porbablity that you might find it hilarious (personally, i picked it up in the lazy summer of 2008, and was enticed to such a degree that i marathon read it to the latest panel in the course of three days).

Before anyone else does it, I want to provide you with the link to Order of the Stick: the most awesome webcomic I've ever read. While it creates a magnificent D&D story, it is hilariously self-aware of nearly everything related to making a webcomic.

The Noob was my favourite before I found the Order of the Stick. The Noob is a parody of the entire MMORPG genre written and drawn by a MMORPG veteran. It is filled with unforgettable characters and scenarios, references to popular culture, and at the same time it is a great portrayal of the gaming community.

"Often I get the feeling that deep down, your little girl is struggling with your embrace of filmfaggotry and your loldeep fixations, and the conflict that arises from such a contradiction is embodied pretty well in Kureha's character. But obviously it's not any sort of internal conflict that makes the analogy work. It's the pigtails." - Merridian

I absolutely adored The Last Days of Foxhound, because it went from a genuinely funny comic with exaggerated versions of Metal Gear characters to developing an actual plot with developed characters, all while still being a riot. I think every MGS fan should read it.
"Now, from Nature we obtain abundant information about ourselves, and precious little about others. About the woman you clasp in your arms, can you say with certainty that she does not feign pleasure? About the woman you mistreat, are you quite sure that from abuse she does not derive some obscure and lascivious satisfaction? Let us confine ourselves to simple evidence: through thoughtfulness, gentleness, concern for the feelings of others we saddle our own pleasure with restrictions, and make this sacrifice to obtain a doubtful result." -The Divine Marquis

GG Guys and Brawl in the Family.

Brawl in the Family's 200thcomic is pretty kick ass and definitely worth a read.

I read quite a few through my RSS feed, though nothing too obscure. I had to drop a few, as they were taking too much time.

# Megatokyo
# FoxTrot
# xkcd
# Penny Arcade
# PHD Comics
# garfield minus garfield
# Real Life Comics
# Anime News Nina!
# Hark, A Vagrant!
# Everybody loves Eric Raymond (defunct)
# Spamusement (defunct)
# The Perry Bible Fellowship (mostly defunct)


Dropped (but still enjoy):
# PvP
# VG Cats
# Dinosaur Comics
# Peanuts
# Dilbert

I have a few newspaper comics in there. Don't really see a need for a distinction these days.

The only webcomic I read that's still actively updated is Achewood. It's one of those comics where most of the strips don't really seem very funny if you're new to reading it, but as you get more familiar with the different characters it becomes pretty consistently hilarious.

I'm glad to hear it. The best part is that Jim Davis himself is a fan (even published a book of them).

Garfield minus Garfield's are epic

also, OOTS is awesomeness but it was already mentioned...
ran1: Oh gosh this sentence gave me an internet boner. You're so tsundere.
Mugwump: Goddamn it, Xard! Take me in your arms, you magnificent sex god bastard!
And don't forget to wear the Ran mask.
Eva Yojimbo: You really are the Otaku equivalent of a Catholic and Jew rolled up into one giant dakimakura of guilt.
Gob Hobblin: Sanctimonious, subtly racist, vaguely misogynist, somehow says something while at the same time saying...nothing, really, at all....

Nice, Xard. That's nice.
