I am basing that on the Swedish women I already know. Hot, but not in that way.

RISE FROM YOUR GRAVE!

Discussing other webcomics, here are a few of mine.

MSF High, High School Changed Me, Out of Character, and Play Time are all by the same writer (Wraith) and various artists, and generally take place in the same universe. There's actually a forum RPG for MSF High (and it actually gets regular attendance), and a tabletop RPG in the works. It suffers from the fact that Wraith has no head for money or moneymaking, which gives it a Dresden Codak update schedule and occasionally incomplete (uncolored) pages. (I actually have done some writing for the tabletop RPG and some rules work for the forum RPG.)

Speaking of Dresden Codak, that one cannot be overlooked. There isn't enough "geek" in the world to explain the diverse academic geekdom of that title. While we're on the topic of "webcomics you probably know about", let's go ahead and mention El Goonish Shive and Girl Genius.

You might not have heard of The Meek. Warning: Comic is mildly NSFW (one character doesn't wear clothing much - it's not played sexy, though it does make people mildly uncomfortable). This one is pretty impressive - although it updates irregularly, it exceeds the Dresden Codak threshold, and the artwork is incredible. Plus, it's quite the interleaved story.

Exiern is also a standout. Although the humor is sometimes enough to make me facefault, it's hilarious and exciting at the same time. The evil wizard just can't catch a break, and the one real jab he made at the barbarian hero didn't help him much (the barbarian hero is having a slight crisis of "not-being-a-guy-anymore").

Several webcomics I rather enjoy have some really shoddy publishing schedules, I've noticed. :-\

Moved these two posts from the webcomic thread in the Graveyard to this active webcomic thread. :P The DAMNed

Heres a pretty new one that I enjoy, but admit the pace is kinda slow, but it has quite a few LOL and WTF moments, not to mention the main character's....interesting command of profanity.

Grrl Power.

I know its been said already, but I really do love Something Positive. I started reading it in '03 and have been reading it religiously ever since. I only have a few other webcomics I keep up on regularly, those being Red String, Cardboard Angel, and Looking For Group. I haven't been keeping up too well on LFG lately though because....its moving SO SLOW. I mean it, I can barely remember why they're even fighting this army.....

Meh, the only reason i read the LFG comic is because i check the forum daily. The rp subforum that is. :p
The comic hasn't been funny or interesting plot-wise in a very long time. :|

I AM SO GLAD this thread was started. Thank you Fen. MA3 was my very first web comic ever to read. Im new to it. I hopped over to Eerie Cuties from an add then to Penny and Aggie the same way.

Im a lazy internet user and hate hate hate to search web pages so Ive put off "looking" for more comics to read.
But now I have lots and lots of recommendations. Yay!
Though, its at such a bad time. I just got a new job thats going to take up so much time. Ive got an hour and half commute to and from work. Need to figure out how I can chat online, read webcomics and post on the forum all while driving.
I'm fine! Seriously! Thanks for asking.

Well, she might have a job similar in nature as mine, where there is no internet connected computer nearby at working hours.

Im a nurse at a hospital. I could get fired for getting online and reading comics. They told me in orientation that 2 people got fired for looking at "People from Walmart" pictures on an email. The person who sent it and the person who opened it and read it on a hospital computer. Im not going to push my luck.
