My Favorite Underrated Webcomics

Posted: March 14, 2014 in Writing

There are a lot of popular webcomics out there: xkcd, The Oatmeal, and Cyanide and Happiness are some of them. However, there are some webcomics that I follow that, while they have their own community, haven’t reached the widespread success of those webcomics. I really enjoy these webcomics and thought I’d share them with you all.

The Zombie Hunters

In a future zombie apocalypse, a group of survivors banded together at the Argus Research Campus, which is located on an island. The Zombie Hunters follows a team of zombie hunters that are infected with a dormant strain of the zombie virus—when they die, they will become zombies. The team goes out on scavenging runs and tries to live life in the zombie apocalypse.

Darths and Droids

The Star Wars prequels have been endlessly mocked throughout the internet; the movies were criticized for having plots that made no sense. However, what if the movies were actually a manifestation of a role-playing game? Then, the movies would make more sense.

In a nutshell, that is what Darths and Droids is. The webcomic depicts a universe where Star Wars is a role-playing campaign a group of friends created; in this universe, the Star Wars movies never existed and as a result, the resurgence in science fiction created by the movies never happened.

The Archipelago

This summary of The Archipelago from TV Tropes sums up the comic better than I could:

One cold night, Credenza discovers a nameless man washed up on the shores of Ruin Island. He is wounded and on the brink of death, but with Credenza’s help is able to recover. The only problem? The man has lost his memories as well as his sanity, even his very name. Credenza gives him a new one, Blitz, and earns his undying loyalty. Archipelago follows Credenza and Blitz’s story as they become involved in a colossal battle between good and evil, journey to new parts of the titular Archipelago, and make a few friends along the way.

So those are some of the webcomics that I enjoy. What webcomics do you regularly follow?
