Still Frame: Webcomics, Vol. 3

These are some of my "sillies," comics that often have little to no plot, and are really just for stupid humor. It still works quite well, though. It's the quirks with these comics that grab my attention. They also seem to update when the artists feels like beyond one exception, so forgive the loose update information.


Nedroid | nedroid.com/
By Anthony Clark
Genre: Humor
Updates: Multiple Updates Weekly
[The sheer randomness of some of these comics somehow keeps my attention. I'm serious; read a couple and see what I mean. It's something along a comedian/straight-man skit, except they're both slightly mental.]


Cyanide & Dynamite | www.explosm.net/comics/
By Kris Wilson, Rob DenBleyker, Matt Melvin, & Dave McElfatrick
Genre: Dark Humor, Satire
Updates: Daily
[These are comics that sometimes make me wish I didn't laugh at them...and then I laugh again and get over it. 2000+ comics, flash animations, and millions of hits daily...these guys are rolling in it, on 3-shape characters, nonetheless.]


GunShow | http://gunshowcomic.com/
By KC Green
Genre: Humor, Satire
Updates: Weekly (sometimes more)
[There's the occasional plot and reoccurring character (the Anime Club being the most popular at this time), and that really suits the random structure of the comic; bring some kinda structure to some of the random stuff that Green puts in.]


Pictures for Sad Children | http://www.picturesforsadchildren.com/
By John Campbell
Genre: Dark Humor, Satire
Updates: Weekly
[The drawing style is jarringly simplistic, yet meshes so well with the dark humor just about every comic has. It's like a 10-year old emo kid draws these. That kid would get a gold star from me.]


AmazingSuperPowers | http://www.amazingsuperpowers.com/
By Wes & Tony (Can't find their real names anywhere)
Genre: Humor, Satire
Updates: Twice a Week
[Simple drawings, great material. It's tastes, though, are a bit limited; this feels like a niche comedy webcomic.]
