Top 10 Must Read Web Comics

6. Garfield Minus Garfield:

Garfield Minus Garfield

These web comics are part funny and part downright traumatising. They go as far to suggest that Garfield was nothing more than a figment of Jon’s imagination, and go on to remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips to leave a poor lonely Jon babbling to himself. The website characterizes this as ‘a journey deep into the mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb’. Have a look for yourself!


7. Hyperboleandahalf:


You know this website is different when the author introduces herself with the picture of a unicorn. This website has blog posts peppered with pictures and drawings that make for quite an entertaining time. The comics come across as eccentric, crazy, and way-too-much-fun.


8. ButterSafe:


Made by Raynato Castro and Alex Culang, this website, unlike the other web comics, doesn’t really have any recurring characters, with each strip hardly bearing any relation to the other. But, trust me, each of these comic strips are guaranteed to have you chuckling. This one is updated every Tuesday and Thursday, and make for a great read! When you visit this website, do make sure to check out their ‘amazing things’ page, which, not very surprisingly, does have some pretty great reads which you can spend hours perusing.


9. The DogHouse Diaries:

When I go to their website, their ‘about’ section says that the web comic is ‘all about love, life and sandwiches’, and I think there’s no better way to put it. This comic, which gets updated every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, deals with a variety of topics, varying from humour about relationships and friends, the occasional sarcastic remark and quite a bit about science and pop culture.


10. Indexed:


A great one for those math enthusiasts out there. This web comic uses cute little Venn diagrams to put the point across, which is done pretty effectively, if I say so myself. These are mostly daily life observations, made by the author/illustrator, who notes that ‘I use it (the venn diagram) to think a little more relationally without resorting to doing actual math.’ The diagrams are drawn by Ms. Jessica Hagy, and if you love her work like I do, do check out her book ‘How to Be Interesting (In 10 Simple Steps)’ as well!
