More of the Best Webcomics

One of my most popular blog entries was "The Best Webcomics" back in 2009.  It was only a matter of time before I decided to write a sequel.  When I was a kid, I wanted to be a cartoonist.  I loved doodling.  I would fill notebooks with sketches and even wrote a few original comic strips of my own over the years.  If I had grown up in the age of webcomics, with its helpful software tools, online distribution engines, and worldwide audiences ready to be tapped, who knows what might have been?  But it is pointless to dwell on "what ifs" -- instead, I choose to enjoy the creative humor and wonderful imaginations of those comic artists who embraced the new medium, sharing their writing and drawing talents with us all.

In my original post, I listed a few great webcomics as my favorites: Sinfest, PvP, Theater Hopper, Penny Arcade, and Diesel Sweeties.  They all still hold up as the best of the best, in my opinion.  But there are many more that bring a smile to my face and cheer me up every time I want a good laugh.  Without further ado, here are some more of the best webcomics out there:

Cyanide and Happiness by Kris Wilson and others - Not always safe for work but almost always safe for good amusement, this is an inventive and innovative strip with some intelligent ideas thrown in among the sometimes controversial shock-and-awe subject matter.

Dinosaur Comics by Ryan North - Of all the comics that people recommended to me after my first post, this was the one that came up the most frequently.  The simple, repetitive artwork is elevated to genius level thanks to the superb writing.

The Joy of Tech by Liza Schmalcel (a.k.a. Nitrozac) and Bruce Evans (a.k.a. Snaggy) - Tailor-made for geeks like me, this is one of the finest pop culture and technology webcomics out there. 

Questionable Content by Jeph Jacques - QC has become a merchandising phenomenon, and for justifiable reason.  It's hilarious!  The artwork is excellent and the writing is topnotch.  Jacques has invented characters that seem to break through the two-dimensional confines of the medium.

Xkcd by Randall Munroe - This is another often recommended webcomic.  It's arguably the smartest strip out there.  Who knew stick figure drawings about math and science could be so funny, and so profound?

Any other webcomics out there worthy to be called "the best"?  Let me know.  There might be a threequel to this series of posts on the horizon.
