I just discovered Diesel Sweeties, a very cool, very pixellated Web comic.



Anyone here have any other Web-based comics they enjoy?

I highly recommend Achewood. It will take you some time to get up to speed, but I think it's worth it. That might just make me weird, though.

Those are really bad comics. Not much going on. You could get worse stuff.

For example:



The new Opus strip is utterly horrible.

But enough negativity already!!

Here's some good smack if you haven't already checked it out:

Try some stuff by James Kochalka at http://www.americanelf.com/

Ted Rall is okay: http://www.rall.com

Anything by Lay, Bolling, or Spain at Salon's comics page is good stuff.

Trobletown by Lloyd Dangle is always a hoot: http://www.troubletown.com/

And my all time favorite is Maakies by Tony Millionaire: http://www.maakies.com

Some of these links may not be work safe. Be cautious when viewing!

No, it's horrible. Putting swear words into a comic doesn't make it great. It's like a cross between Boondocks and Cathy.

That's why they're online, and not in your daily newspaper.

Most of the comics on the site don't have profanities. Understand that in this case, it's in context.

One of my favourite comic book artists, Peter Bagge, has a few of his strips online at

http://www.peterbagge.com/comics/online.html

Rumpy and others will appreciate his commentary on the gentrification of drinking dives. ;)

SAC will appreciate his take on malls. ;)

If you like these, go to your comic shop and buy the back issues of Hate.
