Dungeons & Discourse

a_rpg.jpgHere is a great comic, at least if you like roleplaying games and philosophy: Dresden Codak casts Magic Missile.

Overall Dresden Codak is one of the better webcomics in terms of quality, weird content and design. The boustrophedonic layout is confusing at first, but works as soon as you figure it out.

While still on the subject of webcomics worth examining, Dr McNinja is another excellent comic that manages to reach great levels of action weirdness ("Well, if I may whip up an ectoplasmic slide projection?"). Gunnerkrigg Court is more poetic and gently humorous. In that neighbourhood I would also place Minus. In the category "best/worst use of scrolling" Nine Planets Without Intelligent Life is a good contender. Finally, Irregular Webcomic demonstrates the power of Lego.
