You should read these webcomics as well

Read the first round of webcomic recommendations here!

It’s finals week here at Northeastern. My orgo final is this Friday. I actually need to get stuff done. 

So while I’m doing that, go and read these awesome webcomics:

Cucumber Quest – An adorable comic about bunnies going on an epic adventure together that also parodies stereotypical fantasy stories.

Three Word Phrase – A series of random, often non-sequitur comic strips. Half the time, I swear, I have no idea what’s going on.

Kid RaddI’m recycling this from my super-old blog. It’s basically the comedic story of a fictional video game character who escapes his game and has to adjust to life in cyberspace. Somehow it turns into an existential-action-adventure epic. The entire comic, which was completed in 2004, is composed of 8-bit sprites all designed by the author. Though it’s a bit long, it’s definitely worth the read.

A Modest Destiny – While we’re talkin’ sprite comics, this is one of my first and favorite webcomics. This is another comic that begins as a humorous, fantasy RPG parody but turns into a much deeper, emotional story. All of the sprites and backgrounds, again, are created entirely by the author rather than ripped from video games. Unfortunately, the comic is on what looks like permanent hiatus.

ADDITIONALLY: Anyone have any recommendations? Seriously, though. Good webcomics are hard to come by.

  1. Questionable Content! XKCD!
    Me? Nerd? Never.
    Oh and hi Vy. How’s Boston? We didn’t talk much in high school. I don’t think. But I’ve been sporadically reading these. Pretty good. Lots of laughs. =]

    • Heya Ken!
      Pshh. Nerds? Us? Please.
      XKCD is the greatest! And I’ve heard a lot of good things about Questionable Content, but never got around to reading it. I’m adding it to my list!
      And I looooove Boston, it’s such a gorgeous city. Thanks for reading my blog! I’m glad you like it 😀 😀 😀

  2. I went through a phase where I used to read a number of webcomics, but I only remained loyal to one, Red String. I haven’t read it for a while, though…

    But some of these look fun (namely the first two). The last one just reminds me of a forum RPG I used to play once about aliens settling on Earth after humans have made themselves extinct, but there was an evil race that had taken over our planet that the characters we played were rebels against.

    Sometimes, I daydream of taking what I remember of that game and writing it down, but I don’t remember everything, so… I wouldn’t know what to do.

    • Hey, I think I’ve heard of Red String before. Maybe I should check it out!
      Oh, I know what you mean. When you remember something from waaaay back when but you can’t remember everything… it can be frustrating! Sounds like a fun game though 😛

  3. I haven’t read a lot of webcomics–but I definitely am checking out A Modest Destiny. 🙂

    How did your Organic Chem final go?!?!

    • AHAHA pretty badly! I got a C. Which was still 10% above the class average, soooooo….
      It’s alright, though. She’ll probably curve it!
      And have fun reading A Modest Destiny! That series definitely takes a while to warm up, but I really enjoyed it in the end. 😀
