Hark, a new webcomic!
November 12, 2012 7:36 AM   Subscribe

Because Hark, a Vagrant has slowed her publishing schedule, I need some more similar web comics to fill the void. Help!

Things I like about her comics:
- Actually nice, real drawing! Not stick figures, and not too glossy either.
- Sometimes "educational" but never pedantic
- Not about computers/video games/math
- No twee highschooly relationship dynamics

I also like/d Three Word Phrase, Achewood, and Sin Titulo.

Basically I'm looking for the opposite of xkcd. Thank you kindly.

You do follow Kate Beaton's Twitter feed (@beatonna), right? It's more family oriented than history oriented, but it's still great.

Perry Bible Fellowship (updates are few and far between, but there is a huge archive of awesome).
Wondermark (very funny and great-looking strips collaged out of Victorian illustrations).
Cat and Girl.

Wondermark is a good stepping-off point.

Gun Show is probably my favorite web comic. It might be too stupid though?

More specifically, I follow her Twitpic feed, in which she posts rough sketches.

Response by poster: I should clarify that I do follow Kate Beaton's twitter and tumblr but I'm looking for some fresh stuff I can stick in my RSS reader. Keep it coming!

@theodolite Gun Show is not too stupid! I mean, I enjoy this. I think the non sequitur violence is what prevents me from getting hooked on Gun Show, though.

Best answer: Noelle Stevenson and Nimona

MeFi's own Nedroid? It's the Gun Show I would read to my kids.

I think I learned about Buttersafe from another "recommend me a webcomic" thread here.

Happle Tea generally likes to play with history and myth.

Best answer: Bad Machinery, by notorious Beaton associate John Allison.

I'm glad you asked this question, because it made me remember the awesome Sinfest.

The Abominable Charles Christopher is one of my favorites.
