I just want to thank you for suggesting this because I love!!!! Its my favorite now!!!

Okay, XKCD. :-)

Just hit the `Random' button a few times, to see if it's something you'd be into.

Not my favourite, but `Least I Could Do' has its moments. Like this one, for example;

I am excited to check out some of these comics - always on the lookout for more good ones!

The ones I am always up to date on, besides Candi (some repeats):
Questionable Content
College Roomies from Hell!!!
Penny & Aggie
xkcd
Shortpacked!
Savage Chickens


And the ones I like to check every 2 or 3 weeks:
Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal
Rob and Elliot
WTTF
Brawl in the Family
VG Cats/Super Effective
Bad Machinery
The Non-Adventures of Wonderella


And if you want to check out some awesomeness about breakfast cereal mascots, check out Breakfast of the Gods. Its told like a comic book, in 3 books, and is finished, so you can enjoy the deliciousness :D I thought it was fantastic, but it has it's gruesome moments, be warned!

Another one that's escaped my notice until now! Dead Winter

If you like zombies at all, do yourself a favor and read that one. Its about 325 strips in so it'll take a few hours to read all the way through (well this connection is slow...maybe less...) but the art is great and the story is really well done.

I have quite a few that I keep up with. There have been many that have already been noted [QC, MA3, Red String... etc]... but I didn't see these in your lists:

Sequential Art: http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php
- Not really based in real life, but cute nonetheless. The art is amazing, too.

Real Life: http://www.reallifecomics.com/
- Follows the life [sorta] of Greg Dean, the creator. He loves video games, Star Trek, and has taken some liberties with reality in order to get some awesome story lines. Tony is my favorite character. :D

Blip: http://blipcomic.com/index.php
- The characters are interesting, and although I get confused once in a while, it really does have some good plots. Plus K, the main character, is totally relatable. :P

Eros, Inc.: http://www.commonnamefilms.com/erosinc/
- Follows the life of real life cupids. Cute, and the characters are pretty cool. Deals with some real relationship issues, and has zany wierdness to balance it out.

Goblins: http://goblins.keenspot.com/
- For anyone into roleplay gaming [D&D, for example], this is a comic about gaming... from the monster's point of view. The art is pretty good, and at points there are a few too many characters to keep track of, but the stories are awesome.

Wapsi Square: http://wapsisquare.com/
- The main character is an archaeologist with mega boobs, who somehow manages to collect quite a few supernatural friends while trying to save the world. I got hooked on it after just a few comics.

El Goonish Shive: http://www.egscomics.com/
- Supernatural beings, saving the world, and people changing genders? Yup, that and more. The characters face serious obstacles, and grow/mature really convincingly throughout the comic. I like that. :D

And thanks, now I have ten more comics to get hooked on. :P

Accursed Dragon! I only just stumbled across it a couple days ago. It's a melodramatic fantasy adventure with one thing that makes it stand out: the comics still have funny punch lines.

Someone's probably told you about this one already, but just in case...

Ill Will Press, starring Foamy the Squirrel. :-)

Bitter, cynical, half-crazed squirrel ranting about pretty much everything. I like it. Has no place in this comic, but he could teach the squirrel mafia a few things.



Cheers,

Patrick.

I read a lot of comics. Many of them have been mentioned, like Packy, I cut my teeth on Sluggy Freelance. Since then, I've found so much awesome stuff out there. Here are some of my favorites that I don't remember seeing listed. Y'all have some great taste in comics!

The Devil's Panties (It's not satanic porn) http://thedevilspanties.com/
Punch 'an Pie http://www.punchanpie.net/cgi-bin/autokeenlite.cgi
Striptease http://www.stripteasecomic.com/
Evil, Inc. http://www.evil-comic.com/
PvP http://www.pvponline.com/
Shortpacked http://www.shortpacked.com/
Exiern http://www.exiern.com/
Brat-halla http://brat-halla.com/
Digger http://www.diggercomic.com/
Multiplex http://www.multiplexcomic.com/index.php
Lovecraft is Missing http://lovecraftismissing.com/
Megatokyo http://www.megatokyo.com/
Templar, AZ http://templaraz.com/ (which I am behind on)

Also, some that aren't around anymore - Friendly Hostility, Home on the Strange and some that if the are around I ddon't know where to find them - No Stereotypes, Nonpersons.

All this, Something Positive, GWS, LICD, Looking For Group, XKCD, Two Lumps, Gunnerkrig Court, The Dreamland Chronicles, Girl Genius, Zombie Hunters, and many more. At one point, I was reading about 50 comics a day. Insomnia may not be my friend, but it helped me find some really great comics. :)

Here's another one, not sure if it's been mentioned here before;
Accursed Dragon!

I've taken the liberty of linking to the first comic, so you can just start from there if you want.

Anyway, good story, great sense of humour, interesting characters, and like Candi's story here, the author treads carefully between cynicism and optimism without swinging too far in either direction. Updates are more regular [no offence Starline; I know you're busy]. The artwork sometimes leaves something to be desired, but he's working on that, and it's no XKCD [which I'm also very fond of].



Cheers,

Patrick.
