Why is a guy talking to a snake? Why are they discussing religion? Why is the comic called something as convoluted as Boy on a Stick and Slither? These are some of the questions you should not ask when reading web comics.
The Ku Klux Klan, for the uninitiated, were a secret cult who were obsessed with using terrorism and violence to downplay the rights of African-Americans in the US. They were a god-damn menace, no doubt about it, but I’m sure its not too early to joke about them and their methods. I mean no offence to anyone. From the comic Matter of Fact.
Comics that have a recurring storyline tend to get exhausting, you need to follow them regularly to get the jokes. So I tend to avoid these. Penny and Aggie however, captured my fancy a while back and is now probably my favorite story-comic. Save up some time, start from the beginning, and enjoy this high-school battle of egos, its a must read! Here’s the first strip as a teaser…
If only Bush had thought of this strategy, the Iraq war may have ended a lot sooner! From Superpoop, a disgustingly named photo-comic.
Married to the Sea is an unusual comic. It takes archaic pictures and captions them, resulting in hilarity. Check this one out for example, its my ode to Facebook, Twitter and Web 2.0 in general.
Subnormality is a unique web comic. Not only does it have breathtaking artwork, it also suffers from verbal diarrhoea. As its tagline claims, “Comix with too many words since 2007”. Do read it all, if you have the patience. Its worth it, as I found out.
