Webcomics, definitelyScarygoround Though it might take a while to read that from the beginning. That said if you follow the link you'll see that it's recently changed and sort of been remodelled as Bad Machinery, so luckily not too much of that to catch up on.

Otherwise I really like Mulitplex

any recommendations for things youve either read before or keep up with on a semi regular basis?
I bloody LOVE Questionable Content.

other good stuffs: Daily Dinosaur comics, Diesel Sweeties, Toothpaste For Dinner, and Hark! A Vargrant.

Extra Awsomes Superrrr-aces mention for [http://www.catandgirl.com]Cat and Girl
.

That's it off the top of my head. Oh and there's a nice one called Patches but I always forget the url.

I don't remember when I got into QC, but I think it'd been going about 18 months and I stayed up all night reading 'em.

I fixed the linky for Hark! A Vagrant, too. Cand and Girl is totally oneof my favourites. I even PAID for books! And while I'm hear I think I'll meantion the workds ofthe AWESOMETASTIC mr Mitch Clem. He hasn't updated anything is aaaaaaaaaaaages, I hope he's writing books or something.

I'm into artwork that doesn't look like shit

it's a serious point too, I'm not just being an arsehole, I think of comic books and I think of a broad, broad spectrum of styles and approaches that together suggest a rich beautiful very human artform but then I look at webcomics and I see artwork that looks like somebody's trying to draw characters from the cartoon 'doug' using their mouse and an ms paint programme

I'd really like to believe that webcomics have as much potential and richness as comic books but nobody's shown me that yet and I haven't found it for myself and that's what I'm asking for

Curvy and Oglaf are pretty great and hilarious. NSFW though.

My other favorites are Diesel Sweeties and American Elf.

i like American Elf, but i paid my subscription and realised shortly afterwards that i wasn't reading it at all. i think i'm more inclined to read the collections than the daily postings.
Image

Kochalka rules though... stuff like Quit Your Job is great, and i've thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed Fancy Froglin's Sexy Forest, Pinky And Stinky, Monkey Vs Robot and the Superfuckers comics.
Image

The Cute Manifesto is a lovely collection of ideas too.

Yay Kochalka!

Ask away! I love Kolchalka. Quit Your Job is probably the best comic ever written ever! I like his records too - Plouf! once did a cover of Put Down That Gun Kurt Kobain.

I like the look of scarygoround (I've even got a strip on my wall...) and he changes his style from time to time, from hand-drawn to hand-stylused, to cut-and-pasted blobby bits and back again.

Of course a lot of web comics are probably more about the words than the art. Or you think so, until you see that the person who's drawn swearing stick figures for the last 12 years also wrote Maus. Or something.

What can people tell me about The Walking Dead? There's going to be a TV series on AMC, which seems to be the new home of awesome American television (I love Rubicon!). I don't want any spoilers, but is it a good comic?

The trailer looks good and one of the guys (Lennie James) from Jericho in it.

it's got egg from this life in it too

the comics are, I think, fairly highly regarded amongst them's that likes that sort of thing

here's some animated gifs

and here's a shaky bootleg video of the trailer shot over some dude's shoulder as it was being shown at some comic con, lennie james appears to be doing an american phil mitchell impression, egg looks pretty solid as the main character and the use of a rather apt walker brothers song is ace



when the crowd goes nuts at the end I'll admit I got goosebumps

zombies are really played out right now but I think this might just work
