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.
