Happy Bunny by Jim Benton
Via JimBenton.com.

You've no doubt seen Jim Benton's most famous creation, Happy Bunny. This perennial favorite features a cute cartoon bunny who says exactly what's on his mind... even if what's on his mind is frankly, a little bit rude.  Some of Benton's other comic creations include Dear Dumb Diary (soon to be a Netflix show), Dog of Glee, Franny K. Stein, Just Jimmy, Just Plain Mean, Sweetypuss, The Misters, Meany Doodles, Vampy Doodles, Kissy Doodles, and the jOkObo project.

Benton is clearly a prolific cartoonist! You can't go wrong with a visit to his website.

Oh, how we love the adventures of Heart and Brain! Nick Seluk has been penning The Awkward Yeti, a daily comic that follows a blue yeti named Lars, since 2012.  He's come up with a few spin-off comics as well, including Heart and Brain and Medical Tales Retold.

Anyone who has ever personally experienced the daily battle between heart (emotion) and brain (logic) MUST check out Seluk's website.

Owl Turd comic
Via Owl Turd.com.

Owl Turd is the brainchild of Shenanigansen, who was a Massachusetts college student when he started drawing comics in Photoshop. The story goes that Shenanigansen chose the odd name, Owl Turd, at random, because the URL was cheap. (Go figure, right?)

The comics feature a protagonist called Shen, the comic's alter ego, as he moves through the world. The comics are goofy but oh-so-relatable. Give them a try!

Though reliant on a continuing story and laid out more like a comic book than a comic strip, The Adventures of Dr. McNinja is a free webcomic that remains an essential read for its action, writing, art and, most importantly, its humor. Chris Hastings' six-year-old comic stars the titular character, Dr. McNinja, a ninja who is also a doctor and follows him on adventures that are equal parts exciting and hilarious.

Creased Comics

Brad Neely, who shot to Internet fame with his animated rap video “George Washington,” is the creator of the incredibly random and at times very twisted Creased Comics. As with other webcomics, Creased Comics combines pop culture references, clever humor and an off-kilter world view to produce crazy strips that you'd never, ever find in your local newspaper.

Superpoop comic
Via Superpoop.com.

Superpoop isn't really a webcomic at all, but rather a collection of captioned photos, though Drew refers to the work at Superpoop as "photo comics." The photos are fairly random but feature political figures and depictions of current events more often than not. The humor is, however, entirely random and completely hilarious.

Daisy Owl

Ben Driscoll's regularly updated webcomic Daisy Owl is a narrative strip about a bear named Steve, his good friend Mr. Owl and Mr. Owl's two kids, the adopted humans Cooper and Daisy. Driscoll's comic is a rare entity in the webcomic pantheon -- it's smart, well plotted, very funny and popular online and yet, unlike, say, Penny Arcade or xkcd, you don't need a deep knowledge of video games or computer programming to get the jokes.

Dinosaur Comics

The foibles of a T-Rex and his dinosaur pals are played out in traditional strip form. Except each strip's artwork and layout is exactly the same, with brand new writing each day. The repetitive nature of the strip forces its writer/creator, Ryan North, to come up with outlandish and hilarious dialogue for each and every strip. Be sure to read through the comic's archives.

Garfield Minus Garfield

This webcomic is EXACTLY what it sounds like. Dan Walsh, with the blessing of Garfield creator Jim Davis, removes the character Garfield from Garfield comic strips, leaving Garfield's owner, Jon Arbuckle, talking to himself like a schizophrenic. One of the oddest and funniest things on the Web, period.

Remember back in grade school when you would doodle in the margins of your notebooks? Now, what if those doodles had accompanying word bubbles that were sometimes crude, sometimes off the wall but always hilarious? Welcome to Murray The Nut

Overcompensating

With five years of regularly updated, high-quality strips, Overcompensating has one of the deepest wells of quality content online, webcomic or otherwise. And with a blend of plot-based jokes, some scruffy lead characters and some crude humor, it becomes easy to draw comparisons to Overcompensating and the popular TV comedy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Nedroid is a daily-updated webcomic by cartoonist Anthony Clark (who goes by the pseudonym Nedroid... go figure!) The comic is somewhat serialized, in that it follows the adventures of Bearato (a bear) and his friend Reginald (a bluebird). But the humor of the strips, while enriched by the familiarity of the characters, doesn't rely on any prior knowledge of plots or narratives; it's just really funny stuff.

Penny Arcade

Video-game fans rejoice: Penny Arcade, the funniest comic strip ever, is here to save the day. The 10-year-old comic strip, created by writer Jerry Holkins and illustrator Mike Krahulik, appears three times a week and stars a pair of slacker gamer heroes, Tycho and Gabe. But if you don't play video games, don't worry -- the strip's easy-going humor and broad pop-culture references will have video-game virgins laughing in no time.

Imagine Gary Larson, the cartoonist behind the classic newspaper strip The Far Side, had a mental breakdown and lost his ability to draw. That's more or less what Toothpaste for Dinner is like -- off kilter, shakily drawn but retaining pure wit at its core.

Perry Bible Fellowship

Perry Bible Fellowship is hard to describe. Imagine a more twisted version of Gary Larson's classic "The Far Side" meets the humor of The Family Guy, and you're almost there. The award-winning strip by Nicholas Gurewitch is drawn in beautiful, hand-colored images closer to a children's book than anything you'd find in the Sunday Funnies.

White Ninja Comics

White Ninja Comics stars yet another ninja (the titular hero, White Ninja). But unlike Dr. McNinja, the protagonist of Scott Bevan and Kent Earle's strip doesn't really do much in the ninja department. Much of the strip's understated but classic humor comes from placing a ninja in completely mundane situations, such as going shopping and eating dinner. And it’s in these seemingly boring scenarios where the strip's humor thrives.

Buttersafe

Raynato Castro and Alex Culang find a happy medium between the cleverness of xkcd and the off-kilter twist of Perry Bible Fellowship in their own twice-weekly strip, Buttersafe. A must-read for fans of The Family Guy and The Simpsons.

Wondermark

Wondermark is a regularly updated webcomic by David Malki that's comprised of scans of 19th Century woodcuts and engravings composed into a traditional comic-strip format. Think the animation segments from Monty Python's Flying Circus, in webcomic form.

Thinkin' Lincoln

Thinkin' Lincoln is a weekly webcomic starring the head of former president Abraham Lincoln, former president George Washington, the queen of England and various other characters. It's the brainchild of cartoonist Miles Grover, who's a web designer and college student when he's not coming up with bizarre and absurd things for Lincoln to say.

xkcd

When a physicist who's worked as a NASA contractor starts drawing a comic strip, you'd expect the jokes to be smart. But who knew they'd be this funny too? Randall Munroe's strip consists of some stick figures, some sharp jokes steeped in intelligent and original thought and little else. Which means it's one of the more perfect comic strips, on the Web or otherwise.
