Top 10 Best Webcomics
The Top Ten
Homestuck is just amazing. The characters, the art, the plot, the lore --- EVERYTHING. If you haven't read Homestuck, you are a waste of space who deserves death. Read or perish.
Honestly, Homestuck is amazing. It's a bit hard to get into (and the fandom is trash, y'all) but once you get used to the very strange way it's structured, it's one hell of a read. It's one of the those reads that'll change the way you look at comics forever.
Homestuck is the best comic ever I have read a few others but homestuck is the best of them
LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT HOMESTUCK
Homestuck is the most amazing thing I have ever read. It's about four kids who discover a game that can alter reality. Well, stuff happens and they end up entering a world with undefeatable enemies who enjoy random killing sprees, salamander people, and Andrew Hussies all over the place. It is hilarious, depressing, lovable, and also hate-able all at once. Homestuck to me is very well written and thought-out. Yes, it is boring during the first act. Yes, the animations in the first act SUCK. But it is totally worth it.
"Make peace with your god, hotdog froth, for this is the day he dies! " Man this comic is the bomb
It was very hard for me to decide between this and Homestuck. I chose Paranatural because even though I love Homestuck, Paranatural has made me laugh a lot more than Homestuck will.
This comic is full of humor and action, and it is completely relatable.
Just started it, and I'm already hooked. - Yoshilord
This is a web comic that the creator seems to know exactly what it is doing.
It takes imagination and lets loose. Fears, Lies, Doubts, Grief, each one a creature in this comic.
The trees are one of the most powerful things in this!
Don't take that as meaning the characters are weak though..
Seeing the things these characters can do is amazing! You ever seen a sock yell mutliple words at once? So loud it can stun two creatures more than 50 times it's size?
It was a first for me as well.
The characters though-
Each one is so unique in design and personality.
While a few may literally be a sock, or chair. Others are much more complex, such as Julienne, a bird like creature with ballerina shoes for her head and feet (her wings appearantly taste like candy! ). Or Melody, a large creature made purely of instruments!
Not to mention the plot!
At the time of writing this, the plot has yet to fully be revealed. But with what has been ...more
Strong characters, art different but sometimes hard to read.
Beautiful artwork, super imaginative.
Beautiful art and a story that reminds me of a slightly darker version of The Phantom Tollbooth. It deserves much more attention than it's getting. - Yoshilord
Complex characters, action, comedy, plot-driving questions...it has it all.
Hilarious - Not_A_Weeaboo
This webcomic is so awesome
Not just comics... its shorts and show so awesome too
Meh.Lots of dark humor sex topics but overall good, like the one with seagull man lol
This is way too high on the list. Lazy art, over-reliance on dark humor, and no punchline does not make a good webcomic. I'll admit that it does have its moments, but overall, this series is dumb.
Fun plot, snarky dialog, and MAD SCIENCE!
The plot is interesting. It's not really deep or anything, but it's a fun thrill ride and the characters are pretty awesome!
Best read chapter by chapter.
Great story the art is bad at first but as time goes on its gets awesome I read homestuck and in my opinon this is better homestuck is super funny and I love it for that but this has a better story and art
Some of the story lines aren't incredibly well thought out, but most of them are great.
You people have terrible taste.
Great art, good characters, hilarious and has lots of heart
Why are all the things I want to vote on not on this list!? - Maplestrip
Homestuck is somewhat better but this is good from beginning to end… even though, just like Homestuck is it not done yet. P.S some webcomics exists as regular comics too.
AMAZING art and characters!
Scandinavian post apocalyptic story, a slow read but good characters and art. Again, best read in large sections, not per update.
One of the best long running story webcomics around, with unarguably some of the best artwork.
Xkcd is AWESOME. My webcomic, gro0ftkcd, is inspired by xkcd. -Mason S.
Must read for every geek. Scientifically accurate and educational facts alongside interesting philosophical observations and pop culture references. Has spawned many memes and projects that go way beyond the comic. So deep that there is a community wiki interpreting every strip in detail. Interactive comics that can enjoy for hours.
He worked for NASA the writer of this comic. He also has a book, What If. Check it out
I usually vote for Homestuck but XKCD needs to be higher. Randall Munroe is a GENIUS.
Best coloring, weak story, some characters interesting. Let down by highly irregular update scheduile. Best to wait for it to finish to avoid frustration.
Ava's Demon has by far the best art style I've ever seen in a webcomic. Not only that, but the story is well written and organized. Parts of the story quite literally made me gasp at how amazing it is, along with the characters who deal with power struggles as well as pacts where both ends of a deal must be fulfilled. The only con I found while reading it is that you get so immersed in the story that you get sad once you're all caught up with the updates. This webcomic has much potential and it has only begun. There is a lot more to come, and I'm really excited for when Monday and Thursday stride on by
The artwork is some of the best I've seen in a webcomic. The story is alright, not great, but it is still worth reading for the art alone. - Yoshilord
This is my second favorite webcomic. It should be much higher on this list.
Focuses on lighthearted parodies of Nintendo characters, and I became so hopelessly addicted that I read all 600 of them when I came upon it. - Garythesnail
A funny semi-popular video game parody internet web comic parody internet comic strip about Nintendo characters!
Good things everything
Bad things its ending
Excellent character and story.
One of the best, tightest storylines out there, with quirky characters, dry humor, and an eventually-epic scope...Digger is unforgettable!
Huh. Fifth place is exactly where I would have put it. Cool.
Why isn't this higher? - Yoshilord
I'm going to vote for Questionable Content, cause it is simply an engaging story with great characters that I think deserves to get more readership. The series starts out focused on indie young adults, then moves out over time to reveal a whole world filled with AI and their interactions with the main human characters. Definitely worth a read, especially if you like sarcasm.
also seriously how dumbing of age and dinosaur comics not top 20
Yes. Yes. Yes. YES!
There are so many small details that make this story great:
1) It is a story about internal struggles, and trying to make oneself a better person. It shows very realistically how that is very difficult; the protagonist has to deal with temptations, with overshooting her changes, with not noticing some things that she should change, etc.
2) It shows that even after a world wide catastrophe on the apocalyptic scale, human nature is still human nature. People will still want entertainment, there will still be the rich and the poor, cultural divisions, misunderstanding of geniuses, etc.
3) But it also shows how much people will fear the probable cause of the apocalypse.
4) It is also a puzzle, I like to try work out what is going on behind the scenes; the comment section is full of speculation. The author does not answer these speculations directly in the comments, but rather lets the comic itself answer these speculations or give further hints; which adds to ...more - StratThinker
Just a great story
I like them, they are different from other comics!
These are pretty terrible actually...a typical Tumblr comic with crappy characters. - pennyarcade
You learn something, it is super fun, and everyone can relate to it, because EVERYONE LIVES IN A COUNTRY, RIGHT? Thought of voting for homestuck, but this deserves more attention. Oh, also, beer ghost is cute.
Laugh and learn with the spirits of countries.
I hear you Blaze.
THE BEST COMIC SERIES EVER! MUST READ! I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO WITHOUT THEM! Sincerely, Lord Blaze
I'd vote on it, for one. - Maplestrip
It is a nice clean science fiction story, definitely one of my favourites. The only qualm I have with it is the uncanny coincidences that occur a couple of times, but many stories have those so I cannot complain. - StratThinker
One of the most underrated webcomics. The story, while still not entirely revealed, is great, the art is wonderful, the designs are simple, unique and fun to draw, and the characters are realistic with nearly every single detail planned out. The livestreams are incredibly fun, and the fandom feels like a family. Over all a very good webcomic.
WHY ISN'T THIS HIGHER!
Kiwi blitz is one of the best things I've ever read. Likable characters, plot twists, taking apart one of the most overused plot concepts and renewing it. This should at least make top 10.
I have no interest in 1920's prohibition era America but the excellent art and expressive characters make this readable. Length hiatuses, so again best to wait for the current arc to finish.
Has some of the best artwork I've ever seen in a comic, period, as well as a cast of endearing and interesting characters, each with their own backstory, personality, and struggles. Lackadaisy also has an awesome sense of humor, but knows when to tone it down a bit and get serious.
-Amazing Story line.
-Ten years in the making.
-Modern age references.
-Dungeons & Dragons references.
-Well done Humor.
-Store that sells the books and merchandise.
-Shocking and breath taking surprises.
-different characters point of views
-raised over $1M on its kickstarter.
-Made by one man Rich Burlew.
-The fourth book is awful (reasons below)
-Senses done in a hurry
-a new post takes up to a week to a couple days
-the series is better with one character in action not multiple
-art style changes further in the series
Reasons why I hate the fourth book
-plots too basic
-characters out of character.
-Objectives that should have been done ages ago
-The groups leader made himself look like an idiot
The only thing that is good about this is that the book gets better when everyone's back to ...more
As a student and a lecture, I can relate to this comic so much; I wonder if they put spy camera's on campuses just to make this comic so good. - StratThinker
Imagine Homestuck. Now imagine it makes even less sense. That's basically Problem Sleuth. - Yoshilord
Before MS Paint Adventures had Homestuck, it had this. And it definitely prepared people for Homestuck, with its extremely good quality, confusing plot, and what seems like 1,000,000 characters.
Only second to Homestuck.
Sure, Homestuck's good. This just kicks ass. BEST. WEBCOMIC. EVER.
Cool comic just started a few days ago very addicting to keep up with
This is better than any other webcomic in the world.
Gag a page, probably dead now.
