Instructions are simple: share your favorite web comics (those which you keep updated on), a link to their main site, and why you enjoy each of them. The goal is to help others find new comics that they would like and to find new comics that you yourself would like. I'll start.

Classical Music is Boring -- www.classicalmusicisboring.com -- A comic about musicology, music theory, and most of all, music philosophy. Very insightful and slightly humorous.

XKCD -- www.xkcd.com -- "A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language." Well, I'm a computer geek as well as a classical music lover. :D

StupidFox -- http://stupidfox.net -- Just some light situational humor in the form of a stupid fox and his friends.

TwoKinds -- http://twokinds.keenspot.com -- Partly because I like Hugo's saying that animals are the reflection of our own souls, partly because the fantasy setting is good, with a good, well-developed universe, and partly because the storyline(s) is (are) decently complex, with plenty of unexpected turns. Also has a good mix of humor and seriousness. Of course, I've read it from the beginning, so I'm quite attached to the characters, too.

Scandinavia and the World -- http://satwcomic.com -- Political/cultural satire in the form of anthropomorphic countries == epic win.

I'm not sure if I'm up to date with the concept. Would The Onion be considered one? If yes, it's the only one that I check out from time to time.

Ditto on www.classicalmusicisboring.com. I really enjoy a comic that kickstarts my brain. I often disagree with the creators, but it doesn't matter - the comic is just so intelligent and funny.

www.gunnerkrigg.com. Gunnerkrigg court is pretty much my favourite webcomic. Little girls explore adventures, relationships, philosophy, mythology, magic, horror and comedy, cruelty and innocence in a boarding school. Despite the huge and ambitious backdrops, the focus is firmly on characters and relationships. It's a very intelligent comic as well, but its intelligence is very subtle.

Then there are Order of the Stick (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots.html), Dungeon Master of the Rings (http://www.shamusyoung.com/twentysidedtale/?p=612) and Darths & Droids (http://darthsanddroids.net/) that you probably won't like or understand if you aren't into the whole Dungeons and Dragons thing.

Wow, I had forgotten all about XKCD. It's such a great comic.

I was going to do stuff today, but I got stuck on "Scandinavia and the World" instead. Great fun with all the Nordic stereotypes. I love how Sweden is portrayed as the uptight guy in glasses who always knows best, in contrast to free-spirited happy Denmark with a beer bottle glued to his hand. :)

I just wanted to chime in and say "anything but xkcd." Good lord, it is so trite and self-important. Generation Y epitomized. No offense.
How can a comic be self-important?

XKCD tends to polarise opinions a lot but I think that's quite silly. Most people who hate seem to do so mostly because lots of other people love it, and because it's cool to hate it. People who think every single comic is eye-wateringly hilarious I find have unimaginative senses of humour. Me, it makes me laugh often enough that I still read it, though it's always been of variable quality and imaginativeness and its best days have gone.

I like the old "Paul who is a ghost" storyline from Pictures for Sad Children, sadly the author just canned it one day and started doing more self contained strips.

xkcd is mildly amusing from time to time, but for the most part it comes across as something Zach Braff (or at least the type of character he usually plays) would make if he was well versed in maths and computers.

By far the worst stuff is that trash from reddit and 9gag where everyone puts "le" in front of every other word.
