I don't do many webcomics, but I've been reading 8-Bit theatre since the beginning. Nothing but cool comes from that comic strip. :^)

I'm definitely intrigued. I'll have to check it when I have 400+ pages worth of time to spare. :^)

I try to avoid web comics since they either...

1) Try to hard

2) Don't try hard enough

3) Don't update enough to make it worth the time to check

Pac, start at the beginning on OOTS. The pages will fly by, especially if you've got RPG experience in your background.

Some other recommendations:
Mad Science Based:
www.narbonic.com (Narbonic, which ended at the beginning of the year, but the author is rerunning the 6 years of the strip. The early art is a bit rough, but it gets better. Plus, she's a fan of a certain cowtown puppet show.)

www.girlgenius.com (Girl Genius by Phil Folgio. Steam punk era mad science. Gorgeous art.)

http://project-apollo.net/mos/ (Miracle of Science, which also is juuuust about to end. )


Fantasy:
www.dominic-deegan.com (Dominic Deegan, Oracle for Hire- Fantasy. Starts small, gets quite epic. And quite pun filled.)

Sci-Fi
www.schlockmercenary.com  (Schlock Mercenary. Space opera-ish, with a fairly hard SF edge. Pretty funny as well.)

Slice of Life:
www.megatokyo.com (Megatokyo. 6 and a half years of strips and almost a week of time has passed! Generally good when the author remembers to advance the plot a tad.)

www.questionablecontent.net (Questionable Content- 20-something slackers talk about coffee, music and stuff.)

www.homeonthestrange.com/ (Home on the Strange - Very geekish slice of life.)

www.leasticoulddo.com (Least I can Do - Adult-ish content but often very funny. No nudity though.)


Just quick mentions:
www.moderntales.com/comics/anywherebuthere.php
www.webcomicsnation.com/snufflymonkey/yearone/
www.elfonlyinn.net
www.nopinkponies.com
www.irregularwebcomic.net
www.sluggy.com


And some undead strips, stuck in hiatus-land:
Casey & Andy
Melonpool

   Don't know the link but one I check on occasionally is Supernatural Law by Batton Lash, a comedy about lawyers representing all things spooky.

I've been ready Sluggy.com for years
I kinda like leasticoulddo.com...it's updated 6 days a week.  I don't much like the main character...but the daily hotties in the forum keeps me coming back for more!

At least one comic, every week day for two years.

Edit: Actually, on second thought, I removed the NSFW link, it is not really appropriate for this board, but if anyone wants to see it, they can PM me.

Oh, and while I'm at it, my girlfriends comics:

I must also agree that Order of the Stick is a great web comic. It's targeted at D&D geeks (like me), but aside from the occasional D&D rules references/jokes, it should still be easily enjoyable to anyone.

If you know who Tim is (the guy from Lucasarts and then made his own video game company, who made the awesome game called Psychonauts) and you like his stuff then you should like these. My favoirite is Raz's Epic Saga. Makes me laugh. Enjoy!

Penny Arcade (http://www.penny-arcade.com)
Sinfest (http://www.sinfest.net)
and occasionally White Ninja (http://www.whiteninjacomics.com)

I read Misfile but that's all.  I'm considering doing a comic myself.  I can't decide if I want to do start with a webcomic or go all out and come up with something to try selling to an actual comics group.

There's no reason not to do both!

A rather late note here, but a very long running webcomic, Irregular Webcomic posted its final strip today. Just a tad shy of 3200 strips, David Morgan Mar managed to update practically every day for close to 10 years.

Wow.

A great run, dude. And I still want  Jamie and Adam minifigs.

Here's a couple I read. I generally loathe webcomics, but these I enjoy.

Dinosaur Comics (http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=645) - I'm surprised nobody already mentioned this one. This is my very favorite webcomic. There's a new one out every couple days. This is probably because every comic uses the exact same panels.

Cyanide and Happiness (http://explosm.net/comics/1605/) - This is a wildly inappropriate, but often wildly hilarious webcomic. It's written by four different people, so there's a new one just about every day.

There's only one webcomic I follow, Edmund Finney's Quest to Find the Meaning of Life (http://eqcomics.com/). He just posted a Halloween comic (spoilered here for those that don't like to follow links)
