So that question again?

I know I've asked this at least once before, but I've been having a fairly hectic time at work, and I could use a new at home distraction with nice, perusable archives:

So, recommend me your favorite webcomics? Funny is preferable. (I get enough drama as it is.) Cute animals are a plus. Sanity is not required.

    "El Goonish Shive" and "Sequential Art" have animals and a frequently funny. (Leonard the pet platypus is adorable). "Girl Genius" is mastly animal free but hilarious (and scientific monstrosities are better, anyways). "Digger" has animals but isn't really funny. It's finished now, but is beautiful and fascinating enough to try out. Hope you like one!

    Most of the webcomics I usually recommend are full of drama, but if you haven't seen Riot Nrrd (www.riotnrrdcomics.com), you must try it!

    For funny, I'd say 2D Goggles (Lovelace and Babbage) (http://sydneypadua.com/2dgoggles), especially if you like Steampunk, and Freefall (http://freefall.purrsia.com), which has a genetically engineered wolf as a lead character.

    I just read the first trade for Love and Capes (http://www.loveandcapes.com) and passed it on to my kid and husband. We all really enjoyed it. Turns out it's a web comic. Heh. So...that.

    I'll give you 5 from my giant list

    Since it just got an Eisner nomination, Tracy Butler's
    Lackadaisy

    Then lots of mad science and talking animals with Shaenon Garrity's Director's Cut reruns for Narbonic and her and Jerfery Channing Wells' Skin Horse...

    Then the retro goofiness of Megan Gedris' I Was Kidnapped by Lesbian Pirates From Outer Space!!!

    And lastly more scifi with Christopher Baldwin's Spacetrawler...

    Most of my favorite comics are both humorous and dramatic. The two go so well together, after all...

    I second the recommendation of Girl Genius (http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20021104)

    May I also recommend Rich Morris' now-completed masterpiece The Ten Doctors (http://comics.shipsinker.com/?id=16) and Jukashi's Keychain of Creation? (http://keychain.patternspider.net/archive/koc0001.html)

    And for pure uncomplicated laughter, there's the old classic, DM of the Rings (http://www.shamusyoung.com/twentysidedtale/?p=612>DM of the Rings) and its spiritual successor, Darths and Droids. (http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0001.html)

    There isn't much yet but The Fuzzy Five is a super adorable webcomic with walking talking squishables having adventures. Here's the title art with the first comic on the next page: http://www.fuzzyfive.com/2010/comic/comingsoon/
    And when I was checking the archives I realized there were 57 strips, so more than I thought.

    Also, Bad Machinery from the author of Scary Go Round is really awesome and to quote, "Bad Machinery tells the stories of three schoolgirl sleuths and three schoolboy investigators." There are grammar school hi-jinks, evil spirits, endangered species of monster, and magic pencils. It's hilarious.
