6 webcomics with deep archives to read in isolation | Etcetera – Daily Hive

At-home entertainment is having a big moment right now with isolation measures being put into place across the country.

YouTube, Netflix, and online books are getting a lot of attention from everyone staying at home, but lets not forget about webcomics.

Theres no shortage of webcomics available to read, but finding a series that has a large archive is another story altogether.

Here are seven picks with deep, deep archives to keep you entertained for a few hours, days, or even weeks!

Running since 2006, this bare-bones stick figure webcomic bills itself as a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language. Subjects range from the architecture of roadways, what your writing style says about you, coding jokes, and tattoo criticisms, among others.

A long-form webcomic about humanity and connection, mostly. It started with a standard three panel punchline but evolved over the years to become an absurdist, surreal, and sometimes melancholic meditation on human connection and the experience of existence. Canadian artist Winston Rowntree (a pseudonym) renders a vivid and detailed environment, then usually covers it with a mass of text, a monologue, or thought bubbles. The comic has also spawned a successful short animated series, People Watching.

A Canadian treasure, Kate Beatons hand-drawn webcomics tackle the absurdity of historical figures, literature, and more. Beatons comics have been collected into print volumes twice, and shes moved into childrens books with the publication of The Princess and The Pony.

Artist Abby Howard has a particular affinity for zeroing in on the absurd and illustrating them in a cartoony and sometimes grotesquely detailed way. Howards content ranges from one-off jokes to comics about her own life and experiences. Her long-form horror comic The Last Halloween is another excellent read, though it remains unfinished at this time.

Launched in 2008, Aaron Diazs visual storytelling about a cyborg scientist and her adventures has been a highlight on the internet. With several one-off comics and a fully completed arc, Dresden Codak is lush and dense, and well worth the read.

With 74 issues over 15 books, Atomic Robo has only five rules for itself:

With all that in mind, now is a great time to dive into the adventures of robots and monsters created byBrian Clevinger andScott Wegener.
