Webcomic Wednesday A-Z: Lucky Ducky

Webcomic Wednesday finds us feeling divided on the issues of the day. We turn to the Web to distract us — or inform us — with satire and amusing cartooning.

During a several-week period when Uncle Sam has revealed itself to be delving into some nasty business (two IRS scandals, the NSA spying stuff, etc.), we submit that the time is right for some biting socio-political satire. And since we’re on letter “L,” this means we have to cheat (just a little) and recommend Lucky Ducky — which is not exactly its own comic, but a recurring comic under the vaster heading of Tom the Dancing Bug, the wonderful full-pager by Ruben Bolling, hosted online by Boing Boing. (We did tease this last week in the intro; check it out, it’s true.)

Webcomic Wednesday A-Z: I Taste Sound

Welcome to Webcomic Wednesday; while all you people with “jobs” scurry off to enjoy the Geek Sabbath (a.k.a. New Comics Day), we weary Web warriors must make due with the free, online version. But that’s okay; today’s entry is better than 98% of the crap available on the spinner racks.

I Taste Sound is a damned funny (and largely NSFW) collection of comics from Mike Riley.

Webcomic Wednesday A-Z: Hicksville’s Monster Manual Week!

Welcome to Webcomic Wednesday, in which we embark on an epic quest for comics available in the mystical land of “online,” just in time for the Geek Sabbath (a.k.a. New Comics Day).

Hicksville.com is always host to whatever New Zealand-based creator Dylan Horrocks is up to — his books include Hicksville, and the site also hosts several online comics (American Dream, for one). It’s always a fine time to see what’s on Horrocks’ mind or drafting table.
