Hello and welcome to yet another great edition of The Mighty Net! Today we'll be talking about web comics, a great entertaining and insanely time-consuming genre of the world wide web. They come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, but here's a list of only the best and biggest (in my opinion, that is). First up is
- VG Cats . COM
( http://www.vgcats.com )
A web-comic about videogames and cats, specifically. Lots of random entertainment here. It's been around for years, and if you read your way through it you'll notice that it just keeps getting better and better - in terms of graphical design that is. Anyhow, if you like videogames, this is the place for you. Another videogame related web-comic is
- FanBoys - Online . COM
( http://www.fanboys-online.com )
Despite the long domain name that I so often forget the "-online" in while writing, it's a great comic, composed of random witty jokes and a few inanely hardcore videogame nerds for all the major console brands out there. So once again, if you like videogames, give it a go. Another semi-videogame/more computer-related web-comic is'
- Apple Geeks . COM
( http://www.applegeeks.com )
A professional designer and a professional scriptor gathered together to make this, and just look at the great job they did. Not only is there a shitload of content here, but the drawings are amazing, as professional as they can ever get. Marvel - Style, and sometimes even better. The plot is a great one as well, with lots of witty commentaries and action-filled short stories. At the moment this is my favorite one, so go take a look. Another comic with great drawings, and a more military themed story ( still with insane and random action though ) is
- Alpha Shade . COM
( http://www.alphashade.com )
This comic combines modern and oldskool in an amazing adventure that will keep you glued to the screen daily looking updated! If you get addicted, that is. One way to avoid getting addicting is by simply not clicking the link, but you know you want to, go for it. Addiction is a good thing, it keeps you occupied if you have other things you should be doing (?). Anyhow, a few more comics you should check out are as follows
- Bonus Stages . COM
( http://www.bonusstages.com )
Yes, it's another videogame-related webcomic. Seems like most comics are infact videogame-related, and there's nothing that can be done about that!! Or is there?
- Girlyyy . COM
( http://www.girlyyy.com )
The official name is "Go Girly", and it's a long ( currently at ep519 ) and well-drawn comic featuring a bunch of girls and thier sometimes random adventures. Fun for all genders, so go look.
- Lang Lang . Comic Genesis . COM
( http://langlang.comicgenesis.com )
Nothing special about this one, really. Of course it has it's unique ideas as all others, but it doesn't stand out much. Regardless, it's a good comic, updated at rare intervals with short comic strips to read
- Mac Hall . COM
( http://www.machall.com )
Reminds me of Apple Geeks, and it is indeed very similar to apple geeks, even the main characters look alike. Also, they both involve macs, and they both have great drawings, great site layouts, and lots of witty action-packed adventures. If you liked Apple Geeks, you'll love this one as well.
- Smileville . CO . UK
( http://www.smileville.co.uk )
Drawings aren't the best, and nor is the plot, but I'll mention it anyway. Click link to remove curiosity.
- Blast Wave Comic . COM
( http://www.blastwavecomic.com )
It's about red blue and yellow. Three teams traapped in a ruined city, caught in battle for who knows how long. Clever, welldrawn and unique. It's a must to see. Now lets be random and reccoment
- White Ninja Comics . COM
( http://www.whiteninjacomics.com )
The most well-known random comic on the net. If you want random, this is the place to go. Like pineapples on a solemn day. Like gravy to my dismay. Anyhow, hundreds of comic strips already released, and thousands of fan-made submissions. It's big, getting bigger, and it never seems to lose it's sense of randomness either. Despite the sometimes completely crazy comical inputs, you can dig deeper into it, find underlying meanings conveyed from our modern day society. No need for me to continue blabbering about it, just go there, and take a look for yourself.
If you're looking for sprite comics, 8-Bit theater is the one and only ( well not only, but first, biggest and legendary ). You'll find it over at
- Nuklear Power . COM
( http://www.nuklearpower.com )
Another nice and randomly comedied sprite comic, with a similar name, is
- 8 Easy Bits . NET
( http://www.8easybits.net )
In other news, it's amazing what fun you can make out a little good photography, photoshop and speech bubbles. See for yourself at
- Alien Loves Predator . COM
( http://www.alienlovespredator.com )
Now, lets end this thing providing you with a link that will most definitely provide you with countless decades of reading if you somehow manage to get through all the great comics I've mentioned above. The place this link will take you to is a directory of web-comics, more specifically the Webcomic List. Have fun browsing around! Until next time of The Mighty Net.
