Quite possibly the single funniest entity on the internet, Penny Arcade has been churning out funny for as long as funny has existed in webcomic form. Sharp, biting, and never pulling a single punch, the legendary Arcade has become synonoumous with online gaming cartoonists. There is no other site of its kind on the web with as much respect from both the gaming and webcomic communities, and there is good reason for this.

Little old me gets a mention on his site in the bragging page- check it out! And, a little known fact- it was *I* who told the legendary Tycho Brahe about the page…
D+Pad is the last word in computer-store comics. They offer a fresh take on the tried and tested “gaming comic” by setting the series entirely within a video game store. They’re Canadian, and wildly funny. Take a gander, and be sure to email and ask if they’ll do your taxes for you.
HPB is the current comic by the former captain of the goodship Testicle da Barbarian. With his magical passwords of eternity stripped from him and his comic cursed to drift forever in the endless sea of the world wide web, Keir did not break and he is back in action with HPB. The artwork is done all in Photoshop with no graphic tablet of any kind- 100% mouse and click. They are definately worth checking out! Also, the “.” link has a particularily memorable newspost…
