Editor Dwayne McDuffie got upset back in the day that all of the black superheroes appearing in Marvel comics at one point were young men on . . . skateboards: Rocket Racer & Night Thrasher.
So he pitched this:
Girl Genius is still one of the best webcomics in the universe.
Bird the MightyGodKIng does one of his trademark re-textings on DC's Countdown: Arena. A comic so dumb it can be described in one word: Arena. Though when Bird goes at it, there can be only one winner: us.
I love the page layouts of Dresden Codak. It approaches composition in a way unique among webcomics.
Sinfest is one of those webcomics that I read sporadically. Months pass by without a notice, and then I'll remember it's there and frantically read the entire archive. Amnesia then graces me again, and I forget about it.
It unabashedly steals Bloom County's style, while treading on ground that some would label "edgy." I find it enjoyable in short, controlled bursts.
#10 is Achewood.
Alas, Achewood's strengths are also its biggest drawback, as you really won't get much of the humor without reading six months or so of archived strips. Still, it's more than worth the trouble. The sight of Cornelius the Bear tearfully ripping at the Star Wars tattoo on his chest — the product of a prior night's drunken outing — only really makes sense if you understand what motivates the character, and is only funny if you're familiar with how composed and erudite he ordinarily carries himself. I can't imagine how the episode would read if you're coming to it cold, but it gave me one of my biggest belly laughs of the year. God damn but I love Achewood.
