Gone are the days of waiting for Sunday to read the funnies—thanks to the internet, you can get hilarious comics every day of the week! So what are you waiting for? Here are sixteen of our favorite funny web comics that you can start reading right now.
Sarah C. Andersen is the artist behind Sarah’s Scribbles, a fun and quirky comic about a girl just trying to get by. Andersen puts out a new comic every Monday and Wednesday. She’s also got a book called Big Mushy Happy Lump that’s available now!
C&A is really popular online, even if they are sometimes a little bit NSFW. That being said, if you enjoy dark humor and poorly-drawn cartoon boners (and WHO DOESN’T??!), you will love C&A.
Created in 2009 by Matthew Inman, The Oatmeal is the gold standard of web comics. The site features funny quizzes, articles, blog posts, and merchandise featuring The Oatmeal’s distinctive designs.
Safely Endangered is drawn by Chris McCoy, who states on his Twitter page: “I draw comics and sometimes they’re not so terrible.”
Fun fact: Doug Savage draws every witty, irreverent, and most importantly very FUNNY comic on Savage Chickens on a Post-It note.
Comic Dan Piraro has been making these hysterical comics since 1985, and they’re still seriously funny!
Did someone say “relatable?” C. Cassandra is a 20-something every-woman who is just like us. She procrastinates, she’s secretly disgusting when she’s alone, and she has the kind of self-deprecating wit that makes us love her all the more.
Natalie Dee herself draws this self-titled webcomic. The site features a new one-frame sketch every day, and each comic features a quirky, cute, and humorous take on an every-day event or situation to which many people can relate.
SMBC is drawn by Zach Weiner. Though a new comic is published every day, that’s about the only thing that is regimented about this series; there is no set format, characters, or themes, though the topics range from the ethereal (God, religion, the meaning of life) to the mundane (dating, science, and current events).
This Tumblr blog has a simple premise: It’s simply quotes from the HBO show “True Detective” placed over old school “Family Circus” images. Simple but so, so, SO effective!
In just three short panels, each Amazing Super Powers comic packs a wallop of good times. Guaranteed.
The Doghouse Diaries is a “commentary on life, love and sandwiches” run by three friends, Ray, Raf, and Will. Each comic is simple, creative, and absolutely hysterical.
Comic Monica Ekabutr writes about modern communication (texting) and what it feels like to be a secret recluse at heart. So basically, this Tumblr is a must for those of us who would much rather text than, you know, put on pants and have a real conversation with someone in person.
Created by Reza Farazmand, Poorly Drawn Lines is a crudely-drawn but extremely witty comic that sheds a humorous eye on every topic imaginable. New comics are posted every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
This site is what happens when two hilarious right-handed comics start using their left hands to draw. Good stuff!
