    any good sites for web comics?

    For years I've been on the look out for a good place to at least read comics on line. No luck so far. I know of plenty of places to post for critique, but nothing for reaching out to fans and building a readership.

    The only thing I've found so far is nerds complaining about nerd issues, but nothing serious, unless you can take Weaboos and Furries seriously. I'm not sure if such a thing really exists.

    Well, most "serious" webcomics are hosted on private sites or at least semi-private, like Wordpress etc, generally places where you have to know them to find them. Then there's places like DrunkDuck that offer free and easy hosting for specifically webcomics, which means that you can easily find comics and have yours be seen in the front page but most of them are done by amateurs and beginners.

    If you want to read webcomics, your best bet is to look for listings and review sites that link to them.
    And of course there's stuff like marvel Digital Comics http://marvel.com/digital_comics

    I was really hoping there was a site where all publishers Big, small and independent alike could prowdly promote their work together. It would really give readership a boost. Hopefuly some Zuckerburg type guy will steal this idea.

    I did cross Drunk Duck a few times and ran away once I saw furries. Now you can narrow down the search. Too bad it's so sloppy. I narrowed down the search to Realistic+War and still saw furries.

    I think that's called a comic book shop.

    Well, you can't escape anthro animal comics even with comics from big publishers, so what makes you think you could get a site with hundreds of people without any animal comics? It's the same with manga style, you can't escape it, but nobody forces you to read it either.

    Anthro/furry comics have been around, well, since comics really. The 80s saw a big boom in anthro indie publications.

    Well... nobody wants to share their fans. You get your own fans! Go! Shoo!
    (You don't want mine. They're all furries anyway.)

    Anyway, everybody finds comics by word of mouth and Reddit/Stumbleupon.

    Some body pointed me in the right direction at Pencil Jack. These are a huge step up from the dark pit called Drunk Duck. These sites actually have some enjoyable content. I've only had time to browse around, but I bumped into a few things that peaked my interest. Creativity seems to be buzzing.

    Sorry If I sounded closed minded. I don't hate munga and one of my favorite comics is about a pride of lions in Bagdhad. But you'll have to excuse me for being creeped out by Weeaboos and Furries. You can't deny Drunk Duck has less charm than a methadone clinic.

    I never really enjoyed web comic hosting sites/magazines. Some of the best webcomics that I've found so far host their own stuff. Except for maybe this: http://girlamatic.com/shrubmonkeys/ Maybe I haven't been looking around enough.

    As for the furry thing, just a recommendation: http://lackadaisycats.com/

    The whole reason I started this thread is good web comics are hard to find and there's not much word of mouth going around. The only word of mouth I've gotten is for PVP and penny archade, which I have trouble relating to. I do enjoy all of the stuff in the cheer me up thread though.

    I would totally get into lackadaisy cats, if they weren't furries. I ran across a stack of furry porn when I was a little kid and have never been able to unsee it since. Now I puke in mouth a little evertime I see them.

    haha, was that one your favorite? I find I'm stuck between really dark violent humor and dumb quasi slapstick types. It was somewhat intimidating getting started

    Also, have you read anticshttp://www.anticscomic.com/

    I like it a lot, mostly silly humor but it's very relaxing to read.

    ... Really? I ran across some disturbing stuff myself, but... Oh well. It's a shame though because it's pretty good.

    Um... what do you call this then: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=210987

    And well, gotta echo velderia. It's sad that you saw disturbing stuff (though, who hasn't, considering that back in the day Googling anime did bring up hentai and DA is full of utterly awful fetishes that are capable of curling milk) but sometimes it's good to try to get over bad first impressions, instead of letting them limit you so that you can't even read Donald Duck because of something you saw in the internet.

    And well, those seem to also be content restricted, as in not everyone can post there, so big surprise?
    They do seem pretty interesting though.
