Throughout the year I review the very finest of the crop of webcomics for your discerning palette. However, due to the way that I review things many wonderful comics get left by the wayside. I only review books, films, television, games and comics on the basis of their story; that is the lens through which I view them. As such any webcomics that do not have a single continuous narrative get overlooked. In this time of rampant commercialism, take a moment to glance at the wonders that the internet offers you for free. For your end of year pleasure here are the best webcomics that I will never review.

Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal is a daily comic with a different cerebral joke for every occasion. Sometimes the jokes are scientific, sometimes they are philosophical but you are guaranteed to find something amusing in every single one of them. The artwork is bright and simple and the writing is so sharp you could cut yourself on it.

XKCD is one of the oldest webcomics on this list, created with complex ideas distilled down into jokes as simple as the stick figure artwork and graphs that are used to deliver them. If you have spent any amount of time on the internet you have almost certainly come across one or more of these comics, normally with the source scraped off of the bottom so that some other buffoon can take credit for them.

DIARY

Before she began The Last Halloween, Abby Howard chronicled her adventures through life as a dinosaur scientist and all around horrifying person in her irregularly updating diary comic The Junior Scientist Power Hour. It is drawn in a simpler style that the Last Halloween but retains all of the clever design elements that make her new comic so memorable. Also she may be accidentally romancing the devil?

This may seem like an odd choice in a veritable ocean of diary comics but for me Tasha’s comic is the quintessential diary comic, there is no self-deception or misdirection, it is just Tasha’s daily life while she worked at Double Fine Games. Also quite a lot of complaining about getting stuck in video games and talking about the gross things that cats do.

SILLY SCIFI

If you want a comic about robots and the people that love them but you do not want to end up in a far kinkier part of the internet then Diesel Sweeties is the comic for you. If you are looking for the sweet robot loving, don’t worry, I will be doing a sexy webcomic list just like this sometime next year. Expect simple pixel styled artwork, snooty indie music elitists, bodily function jokes and some weirdly on point comments about dating inter-racially.

Featuring exactly what it says on the title, Scenes from a Multiverse is the latest creation of Jon Rosenberg, who’s other webcomic Goats has been running for a very long time with some substantial success. In every strip we visit another planet in the multitude of universes that make up reality and generally there is a topical joke in there somewhere. Thanks to the format there are jokes that can take several months to set up in real time but that while ploughing through the archives you get to enjoy almost instantly. Just stay away from the Bunny Planet and Donald Trump.
