Looks Good On Paper is America's newest and most off-the-wall comic feature by long time cartoonist Dan Collins. Dan is the James Kirk of cartoonists; he boldly goes where no cartoonist has gone before, seeking out new gags and new situations, occasionally stopping to kiss green alien girls and violating the Temporal Prime Directive. (That last part is mostly because he doesn't manage his time well.) Dan's crazy cartoon world is inhabited by Amish Yodas, biker cat gangs, frogs who eat out and basketball playing eyeballs. His unpredictable humor comes from some area of the brain as yet unidentified by medical science, so there's just no telling what marvelous madness you'll find here each week! So, if you like your comics throwing you curveballs from left field, then you're in the right ball park. His jokes are set on stun, his engines are definitely warped and his parting refrain is "Laugh long and prosper!" Visit the Website!

"Once every 5 or 10 years, a new comic feature emerges that's truly unique, breaking the mold of the tired, formulaic pack that populates most of the comics page. Mike Du Jour is such a feature. The art alone is a joy to look at, bringing a smile to your face and making you linger on it. That alone makes it special in today's comic field, but coupled with Mike Lester's whimsical, unpredictable wit, MDJ is a daily must-read. Mike Lester is truly a master of comic art." —Wiley Miller, Non Sequitur

Join HRH Queen Victoria as she daily levels her regal gaze upon the fools and tomfoolery of our time. Along with her classically-rendered co-characters Prince Albert, Anne Boleyn, George III (aka “Grandpa”), Mrs. Clipart and Maurice, Queen V grapples daily with the strange state of our affairs, whether it be resisting a vicious comic strip jihad, surviving a visitation by Howard Stern, or hosting a special edition of “Victorian Idol”. Never has a sovereign quoted the Marx Brothers with more aplomb, paid such heed to the fate of the lite-brite, or dared to go where a comic strip has never gone before: shopping for a Wii. Join the Great Lady as she dares to do battle with Oliver Cromwell and James Cameron, and rules with a steady hand over people who can’t tell the difference between the Virgin Mary and Mary Worth. “Curse you, historical accuracy!”

Owlturd Comix is a thrice-weekly humor webcomic which features a cute exterior but sometimes dives into dark subject matter. CAST INFO: Shen: Shen was originally the author’s self-insert character, which he used to voice all of the petty gripes he has about life. Since then, he has drifted away from the author in both appearance and personality, but still often voices all of the author’s petty gripes about life. Shen is, in short, the modern man. Life: Life is often personified as a buff dude that Shen combats on a day to day basis. So are student loans, winter, and many, many other things.

Ashleigh Brilliant's POT-SHOTS are illustrated epigrams, never longer than 17 words. They are written in very simple English, so as to be easily translatable into other languages. In the process of creation, the words always come first, and (as is not the case with "cartoons"), they are capable of standing alone without requiring any illustration. But the illustrations add a special dimension to the finished product. They should be appropriate, but not too literal – more in the nature of commentary than of direct depiction, which makes creating and/or selecting illustrations one of the hardest parts of the work. There is no cast of characters, and the range of subject matter is virtually unlimited. Originality is considered an essential factor. What is said must be really worth saying, but, as far as possible, never actually have been said before. There can be humor, profundity, poignancy, whimsy or a combination of all these. Another criterion is that the material should have lasting value and be capable of being appreciated in other times and other cultures. Because of this stricture, there can be no rhyme, no rhythm, no puns, no idioms – in fact, none of the conventional wordplay that makes writing short expressions fun and easy. There can also be no intentional topical references. POT-SHOTS have appeared in many forms, with and without the original graphics, but their debut on GoComics is a totally new adventure.
Errant sallies in history, literature, and thought.

Dreaming in black-and-white has never been so colorful. Read the latest thought-provoking work from Pulitzer-Prize winning cartoonist Tom Toles.

Sheldon is a weird, wonderful little strip...with geeky characters, all-ages storylines, and lots of pop-culture nerdiness. Twice nominated for "Best Humor" in the Eisner Awards, Sheldon centers on a wonderfully odd little family: A boy, his duck, and the grandfather that raises them both. But the strip is also famous for venturing away from the main cast and into stand-alone comics and storyline, too. So there’s occasional delightful weirdness.
A "shoecabbage" is a word in another language with the same sound as a word in English but with a different meaning. For example, in English a "shoe" is a covering for a foot, while in French "shoe" [spelled: chou] means "cabbage". Teresa Burritt and David Stanford’s single panel cartoon is both informative and entertaining!
