Top 10 Best Webcomics

The Top Ten

1 Homestuck

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.

I think that Homestuck is the best comic because of the variety of characters and the unique story line (although it is quite confusing..) Homestuck does not fail to make people cry, or smile depending on where you are on the comic. I cannot say I am good at picking out all the details but I myself can say this is an amazing comic.

YOU CAN'T FIGHT THE HOMESTUCK! I am only in act two, but it has already gotten so entertaining (and my friends spoiled a lot)! And Dave Strider is the best, most awesome character (in my opinion) and, so yeah, just pass act one and stuff gets way better!

I've sold my soul to homestuck. At first the first and second acts were a little boring but then it became more exiting and awesome. It's a very well written web comic and I just love it.

2 Paranatural

"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.

3 Unsounded

Just started it, and I'm already hooked. - Yoshilord

Yes!

4 The Silver Eye

Complex characters, action, comedy, plot-driving questions...it has it all.

5 Cyanide and Happiness

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.

6 The Property of Hate

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

I love the characters.

7 Girl Genius

The plot is interesting. It's not really deep or anything, but it's a fun thrill ride and the characters are pretty awesome!

8 Supernormal Step
9 Cucumber Quest

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!

Some of the story lines aren't incredibly well thought out, but most of them are great.

You people have terrible taste.

Crap circle so stupid.

The Contenders

11 Xkcd

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.

Randall Munroe is quite the veteran in the webcomic world. - egberttheegbert

12 Stand Still. Stay Silent
13 Brawl In the Family

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

14 Girly
15 Ava's Demon

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.

A I FINISHED READING IT IN LIKE 2 DAYS AND NOW I NEED MORE SO MUCH MORE I HAVE TO WAIT TIL LIKE THURSDAYS AA

16 Devil's Candy
17 Questionable Content

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!

18 Cut Time
19 Humon Comics

I like them, they are different from other comics!

These are pretty terrible actually...a typical Tumblr comic with crappy characters. - pennyarcade

20 Not A Villain

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

21 Scandinavia and the World

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

22 Snow by Night
23 Digger

Huh. Fifth place is exactly where I would have put it. Cool.

Why isn't this higher? - Yoshilord

24 VG Cats
25 Misfile
26 Twokinds
27 El Goonish Shive

I'd vote on it, for one. - Maplestrip

28 Bi-Morphon

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

29 Red String
30 Godslave
31 Garfield Minus Garfield
32 Kiwi Blitz

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.

33 Colorless

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.

34 Girls With Slingshots
35 Problem Sleuth

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.

36 The Order of the Stick

Good Reasons
-Amazing Story line.
-Ten years in the making.
-remembering characters.
-Modern age references.
-Forums.
-Dungeons & Dragons references.
-Well done Humor.
-Store that sells the books and merchandise.
-Shocking and breath taking surprises.
-Fan art
-different characters point of views
-fantasy
-raised over $1M on its kickstarter.
-Made by one man Rich Burlew.

Awful reasons
-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.
-lacks adventure.
-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

37 Random Doom
38 PHD Comics

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

39 Extra Ordinary
40 Slightly Damned

Cool comic just started a few days ago very addicting to keep up with

41 Galaxion
42 Commander Kitty
43 Lackadaisy

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.

44 Tripp
45 Lilith's Word
46 Fluffernutters
47 The Oatmeal
48 Bittersweet Candy Bowl

It mixes two of my favorite things, cats, and deceptions of high-school! - egberttheegbert

This should be #1. Homestuck sucks

So funny
