Comics have always captured my imagination ever since I was a kid – I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say so. From the Champak to Tinkle, from the occasional Phantom to He-Man, comics have been hours and hours of fun for me as a kid. I still remember the days when I used to hide the comics under my pillow, under the bed, inside my school books and steal a read every now and then. Well, I still follow many comics on the web – and since most of them have changed, I thought I’d give a rundown on them.
#1 Calvin and Hobbes
#2 The miserable world of Prometheus
Based on the mythological story, the comic is mostly a dialog between Prometheus and the Eagle that eats his liver every day. Though the comic has been discontinued, you can read through all the comics in one page here.
#3 Spud Comics
Spud Comics isn’t theme based. It is a comic about random stuff put together. It is one of the longest running comics starting in 2008!
Doghouse is a web-comic conjured by three friends which is also random musings about every day life. Many of their comics are very witty!
XKCD is a very popular, geeky web comic. Comics generally trend on Science, Internet, Geography etc. etc. 🙂
#6 Abstruse Goose
Abstruse Goose is also a comic that does not delve on a theme. Does lean towards the geeky side a little, but not always. Generally a fun read for all.
Dilbert is a very popular comic among us IT folks. Though whatever described in the comic (about the hazards of working in the IT industry) is mostly superlative, we can relate to it!
#8 Piled Higher and Deeper
PHD is similar to XKCD in its tendency to be geeky most of the time. But is a great fun nevertheless.
#9 Sunday Morning Breakfast Cereal
SMBC is updates on theology, science, history including everything in between and many times is not-safe-for-work (NSFW). So, some discretion may be advised.
#10 Urban Jungle
Urban Jungle is about the main character’s work hazards. Something unique to Urban Jungle is that it uses animals as civilized co-characters.
#11 Questionable Content
Questionable Content is a web-comic series revealing the lives of Marten, Dora, Raven, Faye and Hannelore. And not to forget, the awesome robots! 🙂
There you have it. Those are all the comics I follow regularly. Got any more suggestions?
