Comic list


Skepticism and atheism





  • Oh Joy Sex Toy. Sex toy reviews and other sex-related topics. Sometimes NSFW, depending on where you work.
  • With Fetus. Life at an abortion clinic. Uneven, but worth checking out. The artwork is horrible, but some of the characters are engaging and the writing can be thoughtful, when the author doesn't let himself get bogged down in mansplaining feminism (especially in the blog posts). People involved in pro-choice activism will dig it; pro-lifers may read it and learn not to see their ideological enemies as monsters.
  • Oglaf Sex and Dungeons and Dragons-style swordplay and fantasy. Not even remotely safe for work.
  • Try It, You'll Like It. Comic guide to kink. Try it. You'll like it.

General comedy

  • Dinosaur Comics, in which the same six dinosaur clipart images are used over and over again to tell new and hilarious stories, five four times a week.
  • Hark a vagrant; a webcomic that makes jokes about history and literature.
  • The Oatmeal; a webcomic that makes jokes about pop culture.
  • Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal – a non-serial webcomic about all sorts of topics, especially academia, sex, and the occasional superhero. Has some excellent take-downs of creationism. Updates daily at smbc-comics.com.

Inactive/on hiatus

  • Cectic used to be another comic focused on skepticism/atheism comics; as of January 2014, the author is considering restarting it; a full archive is available at the site.
