WaPo wants to know what your favorite webcomic is


The Penny Arcade guys tipped me to this poll going on over at the WaPo’s Comic Riffs blog – they’re asking what your favorite webcomic is. If you don’t read any then that makes for a pretty easy vote, but for those of us who *cough* spend perhaps a little too much time *cough*cough* reading web comics every day it can be a harder selection.

I’m a little disappointed that Schlock Mercenary isn’t in there, and somewhat surprised too, given our military population. However it’s just about made up for by the fact that Scott Kurtz’s PvP is currently sitting at 0%. Spend a little less time sniping at the print comics on web board and more time drawing and maybe you’ll pick up some readers, Scott.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have never heard of some of the other candidates so I need to go do some ummmm research.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  1. Had “Cat and Girl” made it to the voting, it would have been a hard choice – and really, how did it not? – but of the ones in contention, “Hark! A Vagrant” gets my vote for sure. SO GOOD.

  2. In Scott’s defense (and I can’t believe I’m defending him), he is requesting any votes for PVP be put toward Penny Arcade. At least that’s what he posted to twitter yesterday.

    Of the list they present xkcd gets my vote. Wish Looking for Group was included though.

  3. I was hoping to see a larger list of comics because many of the ones that I read weren’t on there, like:

    Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal (http://www.smbc-comics.com/)
    Amazing Superpowers (http://www.amazingsuperpowers.com/) or
    Dinosaur Comics (http://www.qwantz.com/)

    One of my up and coming favorites, though, is the Port Sherry Ballad Collection – http://portsherry.balladcollection.com

    From what was available I voted for XKCD because I’m also a redditor and he built a school from some of the profits from his book sales.
