Jeeeeez, do NOT try Jerk City!

There are a myriad of other comics out there on the web. Try some of them in Plug Ur Comics thread, as well as some of them on front comic page like Something Positive (...which used to be there, I swear), Sam and Fuzzy, or Xkcd. You can also use the search function for other reccomendation threads.  You could also use someplace like Buzzcomix to find good comics to read.

Others I personally like are Girls With Slingshots, and Chugworth Academy on the occasion.

This link page has a lot of good ones.  Some others that I like that aren't on there are 8-bit Theater, Gunnerkrigg Court, and xkcd.

I've found almost every webcomic I currently read by going through the link pages of other comics that I enjoy.  It's a good way to find comics that have similar/complimentary senses of humor to what you already like!

Try SGR. It gives me giggle fests and is becoming one of my favorites. Sinfest is another one I read on a daily basis.

Dr McNinja makes me laugh more reliably than any other webcomic but you have to be a bit cracked to really enjoy it, Scary Go Round is collossal as well, but don't expect quite so many laughs. These ones are on most lists but I find it difficult not to recommend them with all my heart.

I like the following:

Turnsignals on a Landraider - especially if you play either WFB or 40K
Girl Genius - compelling storyline and awesome art
Something Positive - damned funny
Schlock Mercenary - there is no such thing as humour overkill...
Order of the Stick - for the geek in all of us
Brat-halla - The mighty Thor was a kid once, and these are his stories...

I started with TSOALR because I'm a gamer, but I quickly found the links to Questionable Content, and Schlock Mercenary on the links page and NEVER looked back.

That historical figure comic is hilarious. Thanks man!

Yeah, I love her stuff.  The way she draws people, and facial expressions in particular, really cracks me up.  Also her jokes are hella smart and funny.

Has Anders Loves Maria been mentioned yet?  It's kind of like QC but Swedish and all the characters seem practically hellbent on ruining each other's lives.  It's delicious.

Also, the madnesses of K.C. Green are worth checking out.

For some reason that I cant really fathom, I almost never really like comics that are titled with the "[Character 1] and [Character 2]" convention.  Sam and Fuzzy is the only exception that I adore, and Ill occasionally check out Cigarro and Cerveja but for the most part, they never hold my interest: Cat and Girl, Beaver and Steve, Able and Baker, Boy on a Stick and Slither, Joe and Monkey, etc.

I do like Anders Loves Maria, and will catch up on Girl vs. Pig when I remember.

Abel and Baker is pretty cool I think, though if you've got something against puns you won't like a lot of it. That said, I thought many of them were brilliant.

May as well throw out http://www.jaynaylor.com/betterdays/. It's also pretty good for the most part, especially if you can get past the occasional awkward probably NSFW scene. It's not really explicit thankfully but he does apparently do such stuff on his site for micropayments.

it refers to the ancient canadian tradition of soaking bacon with tree sap.

plenty of diners around here are adept at dishing out the sarcasm.

[/derail] im going to put my seal of approval on Something Positive. its great and despite me reading it late into the night for the past few days, i am still 5 years behind the current post. hell of a good and big archive to sift through. the art is almost unchanged as of yet though.

Natalie Dee - A thousand (and counting) one-panel comics that typically have no continuity or reason.
Updates daily, M-F

[email protected]$ - Mostly video game references. I don't like it nearly as much now as I did last year, because he shifted from a cartoon style that fit the random humor of the comic to realism which is completely unsuitable for the writing. Just compare this one from January to the most recent.
Updates Monday and Friday

Real Life Comics - The everyday occurrences of a couple, retold as 4-panel comic strips. (This one's not for fans of art development; he draws it in Illustrator and hasn't changed much in several years.)
Updates daily, M-F

Geeks Next Door - Not much to say about this one. It's good, but kind of generic.
Updates Monday, Wednesday, Friday

SuchRubbish.com - There aren't many strips up at this time, but it's off to a good start.
Updates Wednesdays

xkcd - It's xkcd. 'nuff said.
Updates Monday, Wednesday, Friday

Ctrl+Alt+Del - I'm gonna get chastised for listing this one, but it's consistently updated, has its moments, and is the only webcomic I know of that updates on the weekend.
Updates Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday

VG Cats - Video game references... With CATS! How could you go wrong?
Updates Mondays Whenever.

The Joy of Tech - Tech comics. Mostly Apple-related, but they also touch on technology in general.
Updates Monday, Wednesday, Friday

AWKWARD ZOMBIE - Another game-related comic. Lots of parodies.
Updates every so often

Dave's Dailies - NSFW Comics from Dave. that guy who makes those foul-mouthed baby animal cartoons on Newgrounds!
Updated Monday, Wednesday, Friday, but was put on hold when he started the next RAB cartoon and didn't pick up again after said cartoon was finished.

hell, i read Order of the stick, but i have never played D&D. closest i came to it, is when we picked random phrases from an old D&D book(we got from the free store), and used them as lyrics for our drunken jamming.

penny arcade is great, the old archived stuff is kind of lame though. much smarter than most.
Ctrlaltdel is pretty good too. really clean drawing style, some sort of story, and frequently has really hilarious stuff. not always though.
VGcats, probably the funniest of the "gamer" comics, nearly everyone is immensely funny, but the guy never NEVER updates.
Looking for Group is okay as well. some of the WOW referencing and plot stuff is super lame, but the one character Richard is sweet enough to read for. besides, fairly small archive, doesnt take long to catch up on.
XKCD is probably one of the funniest, smartest ones out there. dont expect to get all the jokes though.
obviously QC is awesome. period.
Dr McNinja, is one of my new favourites. twisted, hilarious, some plot, ridiculous scenarios, ninjas, its got everything.

and Something Positive. i just finished reading the archive. holy crap, took me like 8 times as long as the Q archive. really funny though. lots of great characters, decent drawing, offensive humour. some of the storylines are incredibly sad though.
plus the best ever small comedic sidekick! sorry pintsize, but you arent a cute boneless pink cat like choochoobear.
