Fruit Fuckers and Purple Pussys.

I'm Just Drinking is Paul Kahn's attempt at making a bartending guide to webcomics. Here you'll learn how to make any one of several Penny Arcade themes drinks, a Diesel Sweetie, a VG_Cats and my personal favorite, a Something Positive (whose latest comic is how I came across this project).

Modern Tales unbound

Modern Tales, the subscription-only webcomics site, today makes most of its content available for free. Joey Manley explains why. Any recommendations?

Apparently, partying in the park is a really good idea

I guess there is a lesson here for us all. From Ryan North of Dinosaur Comics, OhNoRobot, and RSSPECT fame comes a new project, based on one of his comics: the amazing Regret Index.

Geek Life, Illustrated

Mike Russell's CulturePulp is a rare example of journalism through comics. Driven by a love of obsessive, slightly geeky subcultures, the Portland-based reporter/cartoonist offers probing answers to such vital questions as Are pirates the new ninjas? What would Tom Jones do? How do you feed a penguin? And which donut shop is best-suited for a voodoo-themed wedding

White Ninja Comics

White Ninja Comics are not for the weak of mind. They are a brilliant satirical commentary on controversial worldly issues.

So many webcomics, so little time

Comic Alert is a free, elegantly designed service that provides RSS feeds for just about every comic with a web presence, allowing you to track updates from the newsreader of your choice. And since it links directly to artists' webpages without copying their images, it neatly sidesteps any pesky copyright issues. Those who prefer a dedicated comic viewing application might want to check out Comictastic or iComic, although some comic creators would prefer you didn't. (Via)

The darkside is so cute!

The Dark Side Is The Best Sauce I'm not sure if the cartoonist has their own personal LiveJournal, but the one for the comic is rather adorable and funny. It's just a handful of strips thus far, and they're terribly spoilery for Star Wars: Episode III. But still worth a quick look.

YOU BUY IT!!!

The rights to Pokey the Penguin(archive)-the entire body of work, characters, likenesses, etc.- are for sale on eBay. Is this the end of an infrequently updated and incoherent era that spanned nearly seven years?

Intro, setup, gag

The Daily Grind Iron Man Challenge. How hard could it be to post a comic every day, 5 days a week. How long could you keep it up. How about for a $1000 prize? Some big names are playing. (because they axed)

Bee is Back

Return of Bee. After several years Jason Little has started posting weekly Bee Comix again. If you missed the original, make sure to check out the first 13 episodes. There is something very Tintin-ish about the animation that I find attractive.

Non-Sequitur takes another jab at webcomics.

Non-Sequitur takes another jab at webcomics. With Garfield now dropped from the LA Times, once again Wiley Miller has renewed his ongoing battle against Scott Kurtz of Player Vs. Player and his challenge to syndicated strips; offering his own for free.

As usual, the best comments are from the boys @ Penny-Arcade.

She thinks Steve Albini is an Olympic rower

"11. Wilco — A Ghost is Born: Wilco is a band for people who think they are intellectuals about music, the Wilco man is always unhappy so his songs start very quietly in order that people don't wake up with a start. It is all for nothing because halfway through someone will play a guitar solo with a chairleg." Shelley Winters, of Scary-Go-Round, reviews the Top 20 albums of the year as picked by John Allison (the creator of Scary-Go-Round). (Oh, and the rest of the archive is worth a gander too, as is John Allison's previous strip Bobbins.)

Your source for furry Japanese stick-man hijinx

While Keenspot picks and chooses the webcomics it hosts like a newspaper comics syndicate would, their Keenspace service is the Geocities of the webcomics world, providing hosting for whoever comes along. Or so I thought. You must experience for yourself these samples of webcomics that haven't quite got Keenspace approval yet.

Who are you to question Zombie Joseph Beuys?

The University of You Suck! While the newer comics are lacking a certain something, oldschool Cat and Girl should still be ranked among the Best of the Web. Please keep in mind, Cat and Girl are Not For Babies.

The History of Online Comics

The History of Online Comics, by T Campbell. A painstakingly annotated eight-part series [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8] ranging from the first webcomics through the inception of the collectives and on to the present day. A good read, even if he does seem to think that Boulder is in the Midwest. [via Websnark]

Heartwarming cartoons, gone horribly awry

And now, the Everything Old Is New Again Dept. brings you the The Dysfunctional Family Circus Archive. It's been five years since Spinn (a.k.a. Greg Galcik) took down the DFC; but back in the day, the DFC was probably the funniest site on the Web (and might even qualify as the funniest since.) Imitators have sprung up since, of course; and Spinn still runs a similar site, A-1 AAA AmeriCaptions. But somehow it's not quite the same... [Possibly NSFW, if your coworkers can read text on your screen.]

Ralph Snart Returns!

The return of Ralph Snart...to the web and to print! This is Marc Hansen's outrageous story of a mild-mannered alcoholic accountant gone completely mental, featuring Dr. Goot (evil scientist and nemesis), Mr. Lizard (thanks to radioactive crickets) and Holly Hornswoggle (evil lab assistant and love interest). It originally ran from 1986 to 1994 and of course there is always the obligatory unofficial site.

Rippin' And Scrappin'

Tivo for Webcomics? Found by way of Comixpedia, this Sun-Times article finds shareware that rips comic files off the web to be something of a God-send. As a web-comic creator, I have no problem with my readers writing personal scripts that pull the .pngs from my front page. But when the rippers begin asking for money for their app that distributes someone else's content (without asking the creators' permission), it seems as though somewhere, there are some enormous balls just a'swingin' in the breeze.

Thank you, and goodnight

Leisuretown has disappeared. Except for the about, contact, navigation, and most important, the donation page, there are no Christmas suicide balloons or Winter solstice parties. I just found out via this Comics Journal thread and I wonder if there any other favorite web cartoons of mine that are about to bite the dust.

You can call me Ray

Ray's Place: Ever since Jeremias turned me on to Achewood back in November, I've been hooked. Some of y'all at that time objected to Chris Olmstead's drawing style, which is, admittedly, an acquired taste. Well, now in the interest of not doing as much work, he's given popular character Ray a weekly advice column, "Ray's Place." Bearing in mind that Ray is a self-centered cat with a swingin' lifestyle, this almost redeems the whole well-worn format of Internet advice column.

Girls! Girls! Girls!

Girls! Girls! Girls! Girlamatic features webcomics created by women, (mostly) for women. Today's featured comic is Kris Dresen, a Xeric grant award winner and an Eisner-nominated comic artist. Some of the Girlamatic site is subscription, but the free section changes every day. (mostly safe for work)

Same Difference at last

Same Difference, Derek Kirk Kim's great online comic has come to it's conclusion. For Kim it's been "2 years. 79 pages. 9 pens. 2 countries. 3 computers. 4 residences. 6 conventions. 725 lonely nights." But for us it's been nothing less than the slow episodic revelation of an amazing talent. I love his elegant line and the depth of his characters. It's funny as hell, but touching enough to make you cry.

Webcomics news coverage

Comixpedia is a new site dedicated to discussion of webcomics news. The Comicon.com Pulse is normally a comic book news site, but they're currently running an interview with Keenspot Prez Chris Crosby. Are webcomics finally getting some decent coverage?

Weird Emma

What happens when crude Flash animation meets an absurd sense of humour? The surreal serial Weird Emma, that's what. If Emma's not up your alley, maybe you'd prefer the static cartoons of Wulff Morgenthaler.

Comic books on the web.

Comic books on the web. So Crossgen comics is starting their fee-based webcomics initiative, and for the first few weeks, EVERY comic they've published is online for free. Does this turn those of you who couldn't care less about comics onto something? Would it get you into your local comic book store? Can these replace physical comic books? And is the interface better or worse than on Marvel's dotcomics?(Main link does not seem to support Mac.)
