Favorite Web Comics

Anyone read web comics (since there are no good comics in the paper any longer)?

A few that I like:

Geek humor

Current favorite. The Earth is hollow and the reptoids that lived below have moved to the surface and work as cheep labor.

http://www.troopsofdoomcomic.com/
^^^
An action figure comic.

I always enjoy Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, Wondermark, and Hark, A Vagrant. As far as the artwork, I absolutely LOVE Lackadaisy. I can look at each comic for ages just enjoying the artist's abilities.

Honorable mention:

Channel Ate
Three Word Phrase
Amazing Superpowers
Buttersafe
Nedroid
Gunshow

What a drag. I was and still am considering an iPad, in part, for this purpose.

With the trend of more and more graphic novels going to the big screen (Sin City, Watchmen, et al) I thought it'd be neat to check them out. Cool thread topic

Yahoo! Comics has a generous selection of the classic Newspaper comics, over 120.

My favorite is Pat Oliphant. But if I posted one of his cartoons here, the whole thread would get kicked into P&R.

That's my standard stop for comics. Some of them aren't much but my favorites are Shoe, and Frank and Earnest. There are more that I read regularly.

I really liked Get Your War On http://www.mnftiu.cc/category/gywo/war81/
and GodToons http://godtoons.com/2008/07/01/god-meet-charles-darwin/
but don't think either has been updated recently.

I like:
xkcd
yehudamoon
the oatmeal
PhD Comics
Get Fuzzy
Pearls Before Swine

I don't care that the last two are still in print. I get them in my RSS Reader so that makes them webcomics for me. Of course I also get Calvin and Hobbes daily that way too.
