I just started going through A Doemain of Our Own and I've fallen in love. It makes me very happy, from both the jokes and the awww-factor, going through these.

As Alea has recently noticed, Doemain isn't all funny and awww. There's a certain point where it very suddenly becomes very sad. It doesn't stay that way, but it's a nontrivial stretch of comics.

Just a note, in case someone goes clicking on that to cheer themselves up from something. I think the first time I read through it I wasn't entirely comprehending what was happening for a few strips. Later, I think my reaction was similar to Sue's "What have you done??!", but maybe more of a "wtf". I'm still amazed that she... comic-ified that.

I read through the part zero is talking about. took an hour or two. it's a wonderful comic. but I was expecting the big sad thingy due to the current comic. I actually saw the whole thing coming the way it did from some of the earliest strips. :-p I don't know how much of a lag there was for her between her life happening and it appearing in the strip but there was definitely foreshadowing whether she realized it or not a couple years out from the big event.

I thought there would be issues but I never expected what actually happened to happen.

With that said, all is well that ends well, eh? I finished it after taking a break from the heartache of that sad year's comics and returned to a wonderful, new set of circumstances that left me more than pleased.

I loved it; the whole darn thing.

My dad was way more into torturing me via really bad math puns, though.

I spent the last 10 minutes trying to figure out how old they both are and I'm convinced there is no actual math involved in the comic and instead he just tossed in some numbers to make it sound good.

My general idea:

x = age of dad
y = age of kid

x+5 = 4(y-1) <-- First box
x+5 = 3(y+6) <-- Second box

Simplify it and you get

x - 4y = -9
x = 3y + 13

Substitute and simplify

3y + 13 - 4y = -9
-y + 13 = -9
-y = -22

Divide the whole thing by -1 and you get y = 22... but.. er... the kid can't be 22. I'm convinced that the comic math teacher sucks at math. Or I do. If I do.. ignore this. >.>

This is a very interesting article, and the videos at the bottom are some of the cutest, most interesting, and, somehow, strangest products of webcomics that I have ever seen.

If you don't want to click the link, it's an article about how ESL teachers can use webcomics as teaching aids, and it suggests Gunnerkrigg Court as one such aid, something I find quite telling and very endearing to the comic as a whole.

I was just shown this comic, like it more than I wanted to, and could easily link to many of them but decided to go with this one. I liked the last panel especially.

ETA: I liked this entire one quite a bit.

And this one.

I just want to note Lackadaisy again. Even if you don't want to read all of it, just please look at one of today's pages, because I just love it so much. It's just... oh man, Rocky's face.

Double post!

Whoever linked us to The Meek (I'm thinking Alea, but possibly not), thank you. This is quite a beautiful comic and I'm already loving its characters even though it's relatively short so far.

I missed mention of The Meek, before! I quite enjoy it, although I wish I could figure out its update pattern (and if it just plain doesn't have one, which I suspect, I wish it had one).

Lately I've been reading the archives of 1/0. It's an interesting take on the relationship between the comic and the artist.

And I'm enjoying Bad Machinery, done by the person who did Scary Go Round. I quite love the humour and style to it.

Thanks Unshelved for plugging http://www.darcomic.org . It looks like something I'll massively enjoy, if the first page is any indication.

ETA: Okay, so by #2 there's mention of Chai Tea (which I also <3) and a few more in, Coldplay's "The Scientist" (another thing I <3) is mentioned and I've been listening to that song again for the about a week now. I can't see me not loving this comic.

I read part of Xeno's Arrow awhile ago, and just recently resumed wasting large amounts of time reading it. For me, this was really good (it seems to have some of the feel of classic sci-fi, but not that I would really know; it appears to be originally a print comic of some kind?), up until about book 2 #3. It was still good enough for me to finish after that, but I think the beginning is where it really shines.

(warning: this is one of those comics that's currently on hiatus with no ETA on resuming, though it stops on the end of a chapter)

This is a really interesting comic. It's updated in weekly 6-page episodes, but they take a break every other week (or so it seems). The artwork is superb, the story is engrossing; the only problem I have (and so might others) is that it can be quite graphically violent. There's one point where they do the reverse-shot through a bullet wound in the head - looking through the gaping hole in the back of his head through the entry wound to the person standing in front of him.

It's worth the read, just be prepared.

Not a webcomic, but I present Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality!

Yes, it's a fanfic, but it's very well written fanfic. In fact a fanfic written by an Artificial Intelligence researcher which starts with the premise, "What if Petunia had married a scientist?" and goes from there.

Is at the same time reverent of JK and her work, and sadistically brutal with every decision made by the characters in the series for any reason other than "This is what an intelligent, reasoned person with this character's motivation would do. (Because if you were Voldemort, you would have Horcruxed the Pioneer Plaque.)"
"But at any rate, the point is that God is what nobody admits to being, and everybody really is."

Having just finished the aforementioned fanfic, I must agree with Janus. The other thing about it is the sheer number of EG references - from Harry wanting to name a team Dragon Army, to having 'The Enemy's Gate is Sideways" to him copying the whole gravity-orientation lecture.
