I keep meaning to get around to reading Grand Blue Door. It looks interesting. Is it? (Well it must be, seeing as it's marked in your favorites...)

mjkj - May 26, 2006 09:49 PM (GMT)
To tell the truth: I like that comic - but I did not check it out for - I think - the last half year. That is because that page had (has?) issues with FireFox (it seems to work right now) and was not updated regularly. But the art is great and the story also (at least in my opinion :P)

I have it still listed because of that :)

[Edit:] Just checked it out again - last update was in January [/Edit:]


Vriaeliss - May 26, 2006 11:02 PM (GMT)
Wow.... That's a lot of comics :P

I really only read this, 8-Bit, and Chasing the Sunset. Oh, and the Naruto Manga, but that's not a webcomic.

I'm such a slacker in that realm, mostly 'cause I'm lazy, and don't seem to have enough time to actively or passively read 4 webcomics, yet alone a dozen :P

mjkj - May 26, 2006 11:10 PM (GMT)
Yeah it is time consuming. (And that are not all the comics I read ...)

But I am glad I have FireFox so I open all links in tabs at once and then read one after the other until I am finished - that speeds it up a bit

Oh yeah, most time consuming are fora: you spend a lot of time posting and reading other peoples posts and then answering on those etc. :P But you will see soon for yourself :lol:

(But try and see if you like Terinu as Sly does. I can only recommend Terinu to you as a great comic - you have to read it for yourself :D)


Vriaeliss - May 27, 2006 01:45 AM (GMT)
I read the first chapter/book/big section of Terinu, then felt kinda webcomicked out... so I haven't started again yet. I'd agree that it's good, I'm just too lazy and too drawn away by the time comittment to catch up x_x

Oh, and yeah, I've done the whole being active in a forum thing... it really does take a decent chunk of time, that's if you get into it that is, and meet people you like talking to.

mjkj - May 27, 2006 10:07 PM (GMT)
Yeah, that is the danger :D of webcomics and of fora *hehe*

But I like them regardless :P


Sly Eagle - May 28, 2006 05:19 PM (GMT)
Of the top of my head, there are roughly two dozen comics I keep rabid track of... Time probably better spent drawing. :lol:

Of course, most of them don't update regularly, so I just run through the list and rarely see anything new.

The RRS feed notifier at Online Comics is definitely a time saver, but most of my comics aren't registered with them. :rolleyes:

Aarien - May 30, 2006 08:34 PM (GMT)
Uhm.... I read so many comic (wether on the net or on paper) that I'm not sure I can count them. :D
The ones on which I stay more focused are... (putting apart the one from which this forum is born XD )
Corner Alley 13
What would happen if fantasy creatured popped up in every day's modern life? ...Neat and funny ^_^

Operation: Neko
Interesting plot about wars, genetically modified creatures and bounty hunters, nice coloring and some good pieces of comedy! ;)

The B-Movie Comic
A totally hilarious comic from a great web-cartoonist... seriously, he's got some style! :P

The Order of the Stick
The product of a genious' mind... Joking about all the rules, the dynamics and the people of the fantasy world... :D

..and Spell Binder
a cute Shounen-Ai story for Shounen-Ai fans. Sweet and pleasant. :)

....then there should be MANY others that I don't mention for two reasons:
I don't follow them so much;
or they don't update from a really long time.
...well, this is it. ^_^

Gamecoder - June 7, 2006 06:07 AM (GMT)
I read only a couple few myself... "The Prime of Ambition" (XD), "8-Bit Theater," "Goblins," and "Darken." Out of all of these, "8-Bit Theater" is my favorite, and PoA and "Goblins" tie for second. Sorry, sis.

mekoveya - June 8, 2006 08:03 PM (GMT)
I read-
The Prime of Ambition
Dinosaur Comics
Chasing the Sunset
Souls Through Darkness
Fade to Black

There are a few others that I keep meaning to read. Most notably Terinu.

I also have tried to get into reading things like 8-Bit and that other one I suddenly can't remember that I was told to read. Uh.... it was.... oh well. Things people have told me that I need to read that I haven't.

nerissarain - June 9, 2006 07:31 PM (GMT)
Prime of Ambition (of course)
Dominic Deegan
9th Elsewhere

Elick - June 16, 2006 03:30 PM (GMT)

My staples are...
Prime (fresh, very good, sporting an amazingly hot dark-elf gent)
ctrl-alt-del (also very good, despite being several years old)
8-bit (been going steadily downhill for about the past ~400 episodes, only check it because it's quick and I have an obsessive personality :unsure: )
Dominic Deegan (great stuff up until the most recent story arc, still a 'page turner')
Flintlocke's Guide to Azeroth (the funniest thing out there for WoW fans, period.)

I occasionally check a few others...
VG Cats (no regular updates, humor doesn't quite agree with me sometimes, amazing art, and kitties!)
WTF Comics (updates are rare, but countered with quality artwork, story turning into a "lookit what my cool characters can do!" fest)
Mana Theater (8-bit for the Secret of Mana universe - well-done flash animation, good humor, perhaps two or three updates in the past eight months... ouch)

And these aren't webcomics, but I still visit... (You got questions, Ninja's got answers :ph43r: . Some of the funniest stuff on the web, and a big supporter of Net Neutrality. You. Go there. Now.) (Once a wonderful site, it's now mostly a new "sbmail" every week, and occasional promotions of new shirts based on whatever they did recently. Still worth the check once every so often.) (A wide variety of... everything. Flash games, home videos, clips from pop TV and Movies, C3PO's vacation photos, 30-foot-tall-mechanical-time-traveling elephant puppets, they have it all.)

And I used to read Nodwick and 9th Elsewhere. Those are both very good. Don't ask me why I stopped. I don't know. I just... I don't know :(

Sly Eagle - June 16, 2006 08:59 PM (GMT)
Pardon? "An" amazingly hot dark-elf gent? ...oh right, the other ones haven't been introduced yet. B)

Hum, you seem to have the opposite view of 8-bit than I have. I personally think the first 100-200 were hit and miss and that the "episodes" have been rock solid ever since. Hum. Of course, you may be one of the few people in the world with wit on par with Sir Brian Clevinger... Perhaps you think yourself above him? :P

Mm...more incentive to read 9th Elsewhere. Do I need more incentive? Obviously yes, as I still haven't gotten around to it.

Elick - June 17, 2006 04:34 AM (GMT)
Since I seem to be running around replying to everything...

No, I wouldn't put myself on par or even above Brian. I mean Sir Clevs.

My complaint is mostly about the characters. There have been flickers of character development here or there, but by and large 700+ episodes haven't made the group any different from its original conception. They pass through various different situations, but Black Mage will hate and want to kill everyone/thing involved (while using obnoxious sexual innuendo if White Mage happens to be present), Fighter will be dumb and make a comment about swords, Thief will betray and/or steal stuff, and Red Mage will use some sort of obscure DnD-esque rule to form a plan to get them out of the situation that almost doesn't work, and yet doesn't quite work either. In the end, they're saved by their opponents being amazingly stupid in an unbelievable way.

I know, it's a humor comic (does that excuse it?), and you can pull up a dozen instances that break the above gross generalization. But I'm still getting a very "Same ol' same ol'" feel. It might be that he's been going at it for several years. Alternately it might be just me. It's an opinion, and there are tens or hundreds of thousands of people that disagree. Maybe even millions. And notice that I -am- still checking it thrice a week. And that there are several other mentions of people reading it on this forum alone.

Oh, and thanks for the spoiler. :o Now everyone knows that other dark elves will come into the story. And that they're hotties. B) It's all ruined. You might as well feed the whole group to a dragon and start again, because we see right through this plot. :angry:

The Prime of Ambition is the only web comic I can make time for. Maybe someday I won't be so dadgummed busy!

Luth'rai - June 23, 2006 03:54 PM (GMT)
Not so busy would be nice.

In addition to most of the comics we link to, I also tend to follow
8-bit Theatre
Dominic Deegan
Errant Story
Friendly Hostility
Return to Sender
...and I know there's more.

Of course, lately I haven't had time for anything but ours because of a workload. Being so muchedly busy kinda sucks, sometimes.

nerissarain - June 28, 2006 05:55 PM (GMT)
Glad to know I'm not the only one a little thrown by the current story arc in Dominic (I think what's getting me is that there are so darn many characters...)
And, yes, 9th elsewhere=good... It's a little slow in it's posting at the moment (seems the author has some form of a life or something going on.. so annoying)... but I'm much enjoying it! (Elick recomended that I look at it, as, from a brief viewing, it seemed like a "me" thing... love it when people know me well enough to recognize things like that :) )

Elick - June 29, 2006 03:59 AM (GMT)

I don't mind that there are a lot of characters. I do mind that only three of them are doing anything about what seems to be a world-wide event. Mookie (the writer) has introduced characters whose power and knowledge reach places beyond mortal comprehension, and yet they can't seem to do anything except sit back and hope everything turns out okay.

I've seen this sort of thing happen in other works (Church and State, anyone?), and I feel that the writer has, to a certain extent, betrayed the characters. Or at least lost a notion of them as I (and other readers) understand it. It can really ruin a piece of work, and I'm mostly going on about this in hopes that it doesn't happen here, or with anyone else reading it. Not that just reading this will make a difference, but hey, I have to feel good for something, right?

And, yes, 9th elsewhere=good... It's a little slow in it's posting at the moment (seems the author has some form of a life or something going on.. so annoying)... but I'm much enjoying it! (Elick recomended that I look at it, as, from a brief viewing, it seemed like a "me" thing... love it when people know me well enough to recognize things like that  )

Well, when some of her first lines of monologue are an almost exact duplicate of things you've said in the past, it's hard to miss the connection.

nerissarain - June 29, 2006 08:53 PM (GMT)
It's good to be good for something :) You are good for many things. (And I think there will be a mass uprising if such betrayal of characters occurs here... yup.. remember I know where you live Sly and Luth).
Ah, yes... I suppose the "exact words" bit woudl be a big tip off...

In addition to most of the comics we link to,

How many comic's do you link to these days?

Luth'rai - June 30, 2006 06:50 AM (GMT)
What? You can't just go and hit the "Links" button? ;)
At present, we link to 11 other webcomics.
And I pay attention to at least 9 of them. The 2 I don't, it's only because I don't have the time.

...cripes, a lot of you know where Sly and I live. <o.-.O>
Good thing no betrayals of character shall be going on, then, yeah?
.....except for the purposes of joke comics.

Sly Eagle - June 30, 2006 06:04 PM (GMT)
...the characters can still betray each other, right? ....right?

Aarien - June 30, 2006 07:34 PM (GMT)
Uhmmm.... this last phrase sounds... intriguing! :D :P :lol:

Hey! I already READ the comic, and click on the silly forum tab....

Okay, I totally forgot the 'links' button was there.

nerissarain - July 1, 2006 12:18 AM (GMT)
Ah, Mekovya.. open your eyes to the wonderful world of links from webcomics. Through they you can experience endless lines of webcomics awaiting you to find time to read them... and occasionaly an odd surprise (I found my Historical Fiction message board through a webcomic link list!)

And Sly.. yes, of course they can betray eachother. It's expected.... they must... unless I don't like who betrays who or how they do it, because I have that power...umm..yeah.. I can pretend, right?

I seem to read completely different webcomics than the rest of you. I used to follow a lot more, but I was without an internet connection for a long time and when I got back I felt overwhelmed by the amount of catching up I had to do. I have slowly been catching up with a few of them, and as I do I add more back into the mix. This is my current list:

Count Your Sheep:
Faux Pas:
Lackadaisy: (the site seems to be down, but it's mirrored on DA)
The Prime of Ambition. :)

Hmm... It's about time for me to add another into the roster, I think.

Tuviana Sirion - May 12, 2007 03:40 AM (GMT)
To join the group!

I read...

Girl Genius
8-Bit Theatre
The Dreamland Chronicles
Cynaide and Happiness
Prime of Ambition
Gone with the Blastwave
One Question
Culture Shock
Hurrock Fardel
The Dragon and the Lemur
Demon Eater
Purgatory Tower
Twisted Mirror
Demonslaying Heritage
White Noise
Prime of Ambition
Drow Tales (techinally not a comic, but collection of thereof)

Hmm... I think thats all.. >_> Dang its longer thatn I thought, the list keeps growing.

Mycaelus - May 14, 2007 04:05 AM (GMT)
The comics I'm currently keeping up on are as follows:

A Lesson is Learned but the Damage is Irreversible (on hiatus)
A Softer World
Dinosaur Comics (definitely one of my favourites)
Dresden Codak
Last Blood
Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal
Silent Kimbly
The Dreamland Chronicles
The Order of the Stick + Erfworld

There are a lot more I've fallen behind on and haven't gotten back into yet, including Earthsong, El Goonish Shive, Sore Thumbs, and 9th Elsewhere. I'll get back to them someday, though. :)
