4 Web Comics You Need To Read Right Now
Among other things, this is the age of the Web Comic. There are a lot of great comics out there, but I decided I’d like to highlight my current favourites. You may notice some geeky trend in this short list, but that’s not going to surprise anyone, now, is it?
- Tree Lobsters. Not only can you not prove they don’t exist, they’re funny. Geeks and skeptics welcome, invisible space pickles, too. No, really. Updates, um, when it updates. Every three or four days, I think, usually.
- XKCD. ‘A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language.’ Skeptics and geeks welcome. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes touching, always worth the read. Updates Monday, Wednesday, Friday.
- Galaxion. Captioned ‘Life. Love. Hyperspace.’ Galaxion is an ongoing SF story that defies being easily pigeonholed into a subgenre or type, but it’s easy to call a good read. The link will take you to the archive page for Book 1. Currently nearing the end of the first chapter of Book 3. Updates on Tuesdays.
- Darths & Droids. What if the Star Wars prequels were the result of an insane role playing campaign? Things might start to make a lot more sense. The link is to the first episode which, strangely enough, begins in the opening frames of Episode I. Updates Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday.
So those are my picks for some fun and entertaining web comics. I’m open to suggestions, though, and always looking for something interesting to read in my copious amounts of free time. Anyone want to run one by me?
