    Been through a few pages and couldn't see one already, so thought I'd step up on this...

    Simple enough, post up your links and thoughts of any webcomics that you might be reading recently, whether they're hidden gems or ones to avoid.

    One I really recommend to everyone is FreakAngels: http://www.freakangels.com/... Updates with 6 pages on a friday, hasn't really missed an update since it started, a good story with lots of potential... but best of all, it's a free comic written by Warren Ellis!

    Anyone else have ones to recommend?

    Shortpacked!

    Ok, not really. Actually...http://badwebcomics.blogspot.com/ I'd recommend going and reading this. They (or at least he) absolutely tear a new on various popular or not so popular webcomics. Go back and look through the archives to see which webcomics have been on there, and then read some and you'll be either amused or filled with fanboy rage. Some notable webcomics that have been on there are Shortpacked!, Dominic Deegan, Ctrl+Alt+Del, PvP, Sluggy Freelance, VG Cats, and Dresdan Codak.

    Anyway, actual Webcomics that I like include Order of the Stick, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, Cigarro & Cerveja, Goblins, Girl Genius, Penny Arcade...others.

    I love "Shortpacked!" Seriously. I do.

    I'm also reading "Bob and George" even though now it's just "re-runs" with commentary. It's a good commic, and I love commentray.

    Also a huge fan of THE webcomic, "Sluggy Freelance."

    Others include: "Real Life" (I'm in one!), "Something Positive" (so wonderfully wrong), "Sheldon" and "Antiseptic Poetry" (when it bothers to update), among many, many others.

    Ctr+Alt+Del.

    There are no other webcomics. Hell, I'm even a subscriber of the animated series. Tim Buckley is pure fucking genius.

    VGCats is good from time to time though.

    Lets see what i got...

    Least I Could Do & Looking for Group (done by the same people, LICD is semi-adultish with a hero most of us can relate to except he gets laid more than this board combined and LFG is his take on WoW/fantasy adventure)
    Penny Arcade (nuff said)
    3 Panel Soul
    VC Cats & SUPER EFFICTIVE
    The Adventures of Dr.McNinja (it has everything from banditos on raptors to Dracula living on the moon with Bruce Lee as his guest)
    Perry Bible Fellowship (needs some updates... hasnt been updated in months)
    Dark Legacy Comics (a WoW based one, its current arc is funny as hell)

    I think the artist retired or is on hiatus. There was an announcement somewhere about it.

    Sluggy Freelance is so epic.. I just started reading it a few months ago and it took so long to catch up from the start to the current comics. It really is a great read.

    I also enjoy Sabrina*Online, and not just because it features walking talking Transformers. :) 
    Didn't know the creator was a member here though. If he sees this, kudos to you sir.

    (Useless fact: I had a co-worker named Sabrina last year, and I would often greet her the same way comic Sabrina's sister would.)

    I had a conversation about this comic at the comic store yesterday. I should really check it out.

    Also, anyone here read "Boy Genius" about Doctor Octopus and Spider-Man in the second grade? I realy wish that would update.
