More Webcomics you're probably not reading

I feel that seven days is enough time to wait until my second entry in this project. Without further delay, here it comes, 5 more webcomics that I feel I need to inflict on the world

MSpaint Adventures:
You are sitting in front of your computer, with your favorite search engine open. What do you do?
> Search for clever web comic that relies on its fans to suggest the next action that should be taken

The top result is for "Your web comic is bad, and you should feel bad" You feel cheated by the search engine and the idiot who suggested this action. What shall you do now
>Quite dicking around and just go to MSpaint Adventures
You are faced with the first page of a new adventure. Your task, name this child.
This is how the latest adventure starts. With four adventures in it's archives, with one complete, and one active, Homestuck. Very reliant on in jokes from previous adventures, and with an incredibly extensive archive, the major drawing factor of this comic is the user generated commands. Every adventure is presented like a classic point and click adventure in the vein of Monkey Island and day of the Tentacle. A unique experience you'll have trouble duplicating
is when the author uses your suggestion

Daisy Owl: Daisy Owl is one of the most serene web comics I've come across on the entire internet so far. It's stars Daisy and her brother Cooper as they are raised by their single adoptive Father. Did I mention he was an Owl? It's your standard slice of life sitcom, with the occasional awareness that their father is a talking owl who is best friends with a bear working in a honey factory run my a giant Queen Bee. If your tired of all the over the top, expletive laced comics you find every where else, give this soothing strip a chance.
Lil'formers: What started out as a bunch of single panel comics about Transformers most people wouldn't recognize has evolved in to a bunch of single panel comics about Transformers most people wouldn't recognize and with the occasianal multi-panel comic about more well known properties ranging from Megaman to Battle Star Galactica to more obscure references like the Centurions or Visionaries. With adorable art work and a nostalgia factor for thise young at heart, you'd be a fool to pass this up.Hijinks Ensue: Another pop culture Centric one here. The Main players in this are A stright White guy with a beard, a straight Mexican guy with a beard, and a gay White guy with a beard. Joel, Eli, and Josh, in case you were wondering what their names were, cover pretty much anything that cathches their interest, which might be why I like it so much. I'll let the final panel from one of their early comics speak for their interests as a whole. Rooster Teeth: Did you know that the guys behind Red vs. Blue, the most Awesome thing to happen to Halo, also have a web comic? Well they do, and it's great. Imagine Penny Arcade, only set in an office with the added bonus of trying to pin each character with their RvB counterpart. Seriously though, if your a fan of either party you owe it to yourself to visit thier website and browse thier archive.

Webcomics you Probably aren't Reading

This a series I to continue in the future, but first, here are five comics you probably aren't reading.

Dr. McNinja: The simple story of a private practice doctor treating patients, trying to earn his parents approval for his life choice, and investigating the raptor that found it's way into his office. Oh, and Ronald McDonald is using his name to sell hamburgers that encourage flatulence. You know, common problems.

Anything by S.Sakurai: My first exposure to her work was the comedy about dead kids, Muertitos.Rvolving around Honeo, the adopted son of The Grim Reaper, and his friends as they struggle through the eternal hell of High school. Though this has since been placed on indefinite hiatus, she does continue to update her earlier work of Gorgeous Princess Creamy Beamy, a parody of the Magical Girl genre of Anime. Instead of the cute little Lolicon girl in a sailor suit, she cast a chubby student named Tsugumi as the titular Princess. Finally theres her current work, Intragalctic, her Sci-Fi parody. It is not my personal favorite, probably because of my dislike for the Main character, Captain Benjamin T. Glee, the feamle equivilant between Captain Kirk, William Shatner, and Zapp Brannigan. S.Sakurai's work is comprable to Douglas Adams work, in that it's absurdist situations and does get referential often.

Oglaf: A NSFW comic set in a Swords and Sorcery world. While it does contain a lot of nudity, there are some work safe comics. Mostly sentered around a so far unnamed apprentice to a sexy sorceress, and the stress of not being able to get laid in a castle that makes Sodam and Gomorrah look like an an Abbey. It has been known to do stories about a couple of adventurers looking for the fountain of youth, the Farm boy with magic cum, Oglaf, and an invading force of Shape shifters, as well as several one shot characters like Simon the Wanderer.

Enough putting it off already

Alright. First post for my first blog, and only three days late. My teacher suggested I keep a blog about my interests, so I hope I can keep your attention. I'll consider myself successful if I can get at least one follower. I should not have to much trouble doing that. Wish me luck!
