My Six Favourite Online Comics

Most online comics are terrible. Just really, really terrible. But because there are so many of them there are bound to be some that generate glimmers of hope from time to time, others that represent real talent, and finally a tiny number that (like comedian George Carlin) actually have something to say while being insightful and funny. Here are six of those.

Unashamedly geeky, poorly drawn, and a dead-on reflection of geek culture.

Simple and squiggly with a pleasantly vulnerable sense of humour.

Basic Instructions
An ironist against the world.

Although it's discontinued, the hundreds of archived comics are distressingly good.

Dinosaur Comics
Verbose dinosaurs discuss densely intellectual topics like stoned frat boys.

A Softer World
Typestrips over photographs. Whimsy with a sting in the tail.
