Finished:
Inverloch
A fantasy story with great art by Sarah Ellerton. It's been a while since I read it and I'm hazy on the details, so I'll just say that I enjoyed it at the time.
Dreamless
A semi-historical romantic drama. It was illustrated by Sarah Ellerton. Interesting premise, nice art, the subject matter is a bit touchy, but overall not a bad story.

Rice Boy
Evan Dahm's masterful start in the world of webcomics. It's a fantasy adventure in a world so weird and so alive it's really hard to explain, so I'll just link to 14-page short story instead.
Order of Tales
Second finished story of Evan's. It's of a different style, and I don't just mean that black-and-white art. It was more ambitious, but I liked Rice Boy more. Still very good, though.

minus.
An omnipotent child plays games, has fun, and sometimes does horrible, cruel things. Also, she plays tag with his food. You don't often see webcomics done in beautiful watercolors.

Ongoing:
The Phoenix Requiem, another fantasy world by Sarah Elleron. It's another drama with emphasis on relationships and a side-dish of some survival horror, this time in a victorian-era fantasy world with some magic but no magicians.

Vattu, another story in Evan Dahm's world first explored in Rice Boy. It has barely begun, so there isn't really anything to say about it. Go read his other works instead, to judge if his style fits you.

Gunnerkrigg Court:
Tom Siddell's weird magical world. There's the titular Court, which is all mysterious technology, and then there's the Forest, which is mysterious and all magic. The protagonist, Annie, is in the court, but doesn't quite fit in. She talks with ghosts, she knows several Grim Reapers by name, etc. It's a charming story whose simplistic art style hides dark undertones.

Girl Genius
Adventure, Romance, MAD SCIENCE! With emphasis on MAD SCIENCE! The story goes like this: there's Europe, which is different from our Europe because there are Sparks. Sparks are madboys and sometimes madgirls who do, you guessed it, MAD SCIENCE! Like, for an example, robots, frankensteinian monsters, graft extra parts into humans, death rays, egg-laying walking houses, rat-sized mammoths, etc. Good art, nice story; the only problem is that it takes forever and ever to get anywhere. That's mostly because they keep inserting jokes and references and side stories into it, though, so it's all good.

Something Positive: it's a sarcastic and pessimistic slice-of-life webcomic. It's also one of the first commercially viable webcomics. The art sucks and I'm not even sure why I keep reading it, but it was possibly the first webcomic I read so the habit is hard to break. It contains dark humour, black humour and dead baby comedy (the very first strip, the one linked to above, for example) - and occassionally people in comfortable relationships.

xkcd; a little of this, a little of that. Updates Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. No real storyline here, feel free to go backwards or whatever.

Looking For Group; a WoW/typical MMORPG parody that starts off comical and cliche but turns fairly serious, with some occasional comic relief stirred in. Does have a continuous storyline, so you'll want to go back to the first comic if you're a new reader. Updated every Monday and Thursday.

Blank It; a comic that starts off in a plane of nothing (somewhat akin to LFG's plane of suck) and quickly develops into a colorful and comical webcomic, where randomness and absurdity are the norm. Again, there's a storyline involved, so start from the beginning.

The Adventures of Dr. McNinja; with a name like that, do I really need to give an explanation? There are currently 20 mini-stories in this comic, each with their own amounts of pages- kind of like a television series, with each story representing an entire episode.

Axe Cop; 70 episodes of awesome.

New one, Bittersweet Candy Bowl.

I ironically actually found out about it through an advertisement on the McNinja website. Webcomics lead to more webcomics, it seems.

K guise I am a wuss, I just finished reading through all of the currently written 400+ pages of Bittersweet Candy Bowl and I think... I think I have developed feelings.

In all seriousness, it suffers from Cerebus Syndrome- it starts off lighthearted and generally plotless but when the main characters get out of middle school and start high school, shit gets dramatic. And not in the good way, either, like Chuck Norris suddenly bursting into your room riding a T-Rex with miniguns for arms- it's that emotional kind of dramatic that really tugs on your heartstrings and hits home.

...assuming you have a heart, of course, or at least some empathy. Maybe some of the older members with calloused souls could turn a blind eye to it, but my hormonally racked underdeveloped heart is waging all out war with the logical portion of my brain, which is screaming "THEY ARE FURRIES IN A WEB COMIC CALM THE HELL DOWN AND GO PUNCH SOMETHING, PANSY." :|

Anyways, my point is that drugs are bad for you and this webcomic has affected me a lot more than I expected it to, which is surprising. I can't even exactly pinpoint what I like so much about it- the plot? The characters? The underlying themes? Maybe everything rolled up into some kind of tasty, dramatic burrito? Regardless, out of all the comics I've listed so far, it's undoubtedly my favorite for having an actual story with characters I give a crap about rather than 2-D cutouts being destroyed in a flurry of testosterone-loaded violence.

Ragdollmaster, I just read quite a few chapters, and I have to agree with you. I have no idea why.

My favorite quote from it is "She needs reassurance that she has a vagina!"

Oh Yashy, you so silly.

There are even a few (amusingly) violent moments, like right here where they nearly beat a would-be mugger to death :lol:

And yes, those bubbles around Mike's head are there because he is drunk. He ate a bowl of liquor-filled chocolates earlier in the chapter :roll:

What is this comic called? Checking the filenames didn't give much of a clew.
And neither the URL's. (Pooponastick, wtf?)

I was like, 9, when I made it. I actually picked that name because I saw somebody with that name playing an MMORPG :/ Great logic, eh?

Also this;

I'm going to stop putting these up since they might spoil the story a bit, but yeah.
(And he has bandages on his face because blahblahblah read the whole comic)

EDIT: OK, this is just an intermission comic and isn't canon, so I might as well put it up.

Yea, if you ever go on their forums, never click on anything that says NSFW. It's ALWAYS furry porn.
