So, what good SF webcomics are there, out there in the internet?

I already found Crimson Dark through the thread further down this subforum; I´m about halfway through, and enjoying it a lot so far.


If you liked Star Wars, you´ll probably enjoy Darths & Droids - the comic that pulled it off to make Jar-Jar Binks a likeable character:
http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0001.html

Servants of the Imperium is a Warhammer 40K stick figure comic. I know, "it´s better than it sounds" doesn´t say much here, but... well, just give it a try.
http://www.servantsoftheimperium.com/index.php

Then there´s Spacetrawler, featuring a bunch of humans from present-day Earth who are abducted by aliens in order to... but read for yourselves:

And of course there´s xkcd, for your daily (well, thrice-weekly) dose of science-related humor.
http://www.xkcd.com/


Do any of you know any other good ones?

If you like old school Dr Who, then Dalek Second Empire is highly entertaining and very, very funny. http://www.mechmaster.co.uk/cg-lair/dal ... -index.htm

Freefall is my favourite: http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff100/fv00001.htm. It's set on a planet undergoing terraformation, and the main cast are an uplifted wolf, an alien in an environment suit, and a gaggle of AI robots. Also, it might be worthwhile to check out Freefall's webcomics link page: http://freefall.purrsia.com/linkpages/onlinecomics.htm.

Buck Godot, Zap Gun for Hire isn't updating any more, but if you haven't read it already….

I suppose I could toss Legostar Galactica into the pot, just for the laugh value...

BTW, Beech... When is the next chunk of Burrowwolf gonna be coming my way? Last part was eight months ago, and was the first half of Chapter Six.

A Miracle Of Science was pretty good (it's a complete story too): http://project-apollo.net/mos/mos000.html

And there's Drive, which is also interesting (and funny): http://www.drivecomic.com/new.html

I know, I know. :oops: It will be back soon (and ready to go in Freelance Traveller) - I have had way too much in the way of RL commitment recently. Just so little time to spare... :cry:

Yeah, I figured it was probably the "I have too much hands on my time" syndrome - seems to be increasingly common these days...
