Webcomics!
« on: April 15, 2012, 01:05:09 PM »

Which comics do people like to read? Here's a sci-fi one which is finished but really really good: http://www.davidcsimon.com/crimsondark/
And another sci-fi, with a very different character: http://www.schlockmercenary.com/

Heh, you could make an 'adventures of the useless' comic, a poor lonesome brawler's adventures life tale.

You won't be able to refit fighters and bombers at all. They're designed/balanced around having a particular set of weapons and would be very broken if you could change it. Which ones you pick for your fleet -out of quite a few that are available- is the choice here, not how they're outfitted.

Tha's my bunch

=) That's a pretty big list! Did you vote in the comic tournament recently? If so, did you vote for Goblins or Gunnerkrigg?

Comics I read:

LFG
Goblins
XKCD
Penny-Arcade
Unsounded
Romantically Apocalyptic (recently, I may drop this one)

Edit: I used to read BadGods a lot, but he doesn't update very often, and the website was even down for awhile...

Not voted in the tournament, but would probably go with Goblins. Been reading it longer, and feel it's got the better plot. Though that isn't to say that Gunnerkrigg is bad by any means, it's amazing, even. Goblins probably is my favourite out of the bunch, closely followed by Girl Genius

Probably not relevant to most of the people on the forum here, but a great insight into the organization:

I also keep up with Nerf Now, I'm fond of Critical Miss on the Escapist, and I occasionally drop in and read Penny Arcade even though I think the authors of those comics have awful taste and are far too accepting of industry practices.
