It’s time for another look at what comic strips and webcomics I’m currently reading. While it’s similar to my previous list of comics last fall, there have been some changes.
Note despite several below being newspaper strips, I read all of my comic strips online. I use either the Feedly RSS reader or updates via social media to keep up with my favorite comic strips.
Daily newspaper comics
- Pearls Before Swine
Weekly newspaper comics
- The Boy in Pink Earmuffs
- Kate or Die!
- Diesel Sweeties
- Dinosaur Comics
- Hark, A Vagrant!
- Not Invented Here (currently on hiatus)
- Scandinavia and the World
- The Joy of Tech
- The Non-Adventures of Wonderella
- The Oatmeal
- Bloom County
- Questionable Content
- My Cage
Similar to before, I’m still just reading two traditional daily newspaper strips, “Monty” (available here) and “Pearls Before Swine” (available here). All the other strips are either weekly/alternative newspaper strips or webcomics.
The webcomics, of course, are much more diverse and cover a wider range of content than what daily newspaper comics can or will cover. Physical newspapers are still carrying reruns of popular but cancelled strips like “Calvin and Hobbes” and “Peanuts.” GoComics, a website that offers online versions of newspaper strips, does also offer some webcomics on its site, at least. GoComics is owned by Universal Uclick, a syndicate that’s the result of the merger of several older syndicates, and one of the few big syndicates left (besides King Features Syndicate and Creators Syndicate).
