Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

Recommended Posts

I used to read Girl Genius but got tired of it not going anywhere, with plot lines veering off and never reaching resolution.  Sometimes read xkcd, but not every day. I generally prefer to sit down with a book.

Do you read any web-comics?  If so, which ones and why do you like them (please provide links if they are SFW and do not have commerce issues)?

 

Only one I've ever really read was Darths & Droids which was absolutely hilarious.  www.darthsanddroids.net (I believe, can't actually access at work). Should be relatively safe for work if memory serves, been a while since I've read it though (see the above mentioned can no longer access from work comment).

I used to, way back in the day. I think I fell off for two reasons:

 

1. The comics I liked tended to slow down and eventually disappear before their time, which I think made it harder and harder to start on new ones.

 

2. I once had a more flexible desk job where I had normal breaks during the day, where I would check up on the comics I was following. I now have a job where I am being more closely monitored and people do not seem to know exactly what a break is.

Imma recommend PS238. It's the tale of the public elementary school for metaprodigy* children. I'm not sure if it's still being published in print as well as online, but the entire run is online.

 

*Superheroes. And a few villains.

I occasionally peek in on Surviving The World, XKCD, and Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal. It should be no surprise to know that these are all very math-science-tech nerd web-comics with a smattering of philosophy. 

 

I've sometimes peeked in on Looking for Group (D&Dish one), and MA3 (a risque one about 3 bisexual roommates).

I randomly (meaning when I remember) check a few comics on webtoons.  Then ones I read the most are Aventures of God and Behind the GIFs.

I've got this WebToons app on my phone. Right now I'm following a few comics, some of them are short run (like Melvina's Therapy (a psychological horror, very good)), some of them are long run (like My Giant Nerd Boyfriend (super cute, funny, and relatable af)). I used to follow others, but lost track of their stories for a while, then it became hard to pick it back up again.

 The only thing that saddens me about Girl Genius is that we haven't seen Krosp for such a long time. ::(:

A few... Not as many as I used to though because with so many of them, they've died off or were abandoned.. 

 

TwoKinds, Dark Legacy, Codename:Hunter, The Whiteboard, XKCD, Druids (NSFW), VG Cats, Housepets, and Furthia High are my current main ones that I follow. 

 

I used to follow Ctrl Alt Del but hated the reboot, Megatokyo was good but I fell behind then stopped caring about the story, Mac Hall ended, Concession ended (Immelmann wanted to do something different after so many years), Better Days (NSFW) ended, DSV Nautica was backburnered indefinitely (also NSFW), League of Extraordinary Furries (aka LXF Furries) wound up dying off.... 

 

That's all I can think of for the moment..  I'll edit in links when I get home, trying to do that on mobile isn't fun at all.

@WhiteWulfe 's post reminded me.  On the list of web comics I read when I remember to: Three Panel Soul (done by the same people as Mac Hall).

 

I really enjoyed Mac Hall when it was running.

I was always meaning to check out their new comic, just always forgot to....  I'll have to do such when I get home!

I used to read a lot of web-comics, but most long running web comics lose me after a while for one reason or the other. I currently read no web-comics.

I did for a while.  Then I realized I was spending way too much time online, so stopped reading them.  Fast forward a few years and now I think I spend way too much time on Facebook.
