The Revolting Mushrooms sideplot is sort of the funniest thing because it is either going to fail horribly or succeed horribly.
I've been looking at a lot of new webcomics lately, here are some good ones that I haven't seen mentioned here.
http://www.shilongpang.com/ - As the about page puts it, "Shi Long Pang is an historical fiction/fantasy about a wandering Shaolin monk in 17th century China". Entertaining and even educational at times, without being dry.
http://70-seas.com/ - 70 Seas details the adventures of three privateers: Serra the navigator, Lewk the holy man, and Nikol the ninja. The setting is pretty interesting. The world is mostly ocean, and most of the land is made of coral, and moves around a lot. All the characters are animals, but it's not a furry comic. The writing's not bad, and it does a good job of balancing the focus/development of the three main characters.
http://www.larsbrown.com/ - Comics by Lars Brown. Most take place in the modern fanatsy setting of North World. There are various story arcs (which you'll need to use the archive to navigate), but the longest one so far is the Epic of Conrad, which is mostly about Conrad figuring out what he wants out of life.
http://spacetrawler.com/ - Not quite sure how to describe this one, so once again I'll let the author handle that. It can get verbose, but it's got an engaging plot and witty writing.
Please check out these comics and validate my opinions.
http://www.delilahdirk.com/ - Kate Beaton recently posted this on her tumblr. It’s about a crazy awesome adventure lady (and some more well grounded guy who can just barely keep up—he also makes the best tea in the world). And ZAKUL. (Zakul!) To some extent, you may really feel like you are in a low fantasy version of early 19th-century Turkey (right down to the ordinary people too modest to accept recompense for their hospitality). The author has a wicked sense of humor. Go read it.

definitely panic if there’s caviar
Okay I'm finally reading Gunnerkrigg Court.
All I have to say is, was I really supposed to only start getting into it after chapter 9 or whatever? I found it really interesting at like the third page already.
I for one honestly think the storytelling is a little lackluster in the first few chapters. Weird pacing here, a little too much exposition there, that sort of thing. And these sorts of hiccups really do get ironed out in a few chapters.
The art’s not great early on, but it is ambitious (so many perspective shots), which means ten points for Queslett it actually earns no demerits whatsoever from me.

I'd like to reccomend Archipelago. http://archipelagocomic.com/
At first it's not the greatest (the art is poor and the writing is interesting but not exceptional) but somewhere in between book 3 and 5 it gets very very good, with dramatic art and writing improvement. Seriously, compare the first page: http://archipelagocomic.com/comic/?id=1 with this: http://archipelagocomic.com/comic/?id=583 And that's not even the latest page. If you enjoy unusual, well thought out fantasy worlds, interesting characters, and a story that is more optimistic then not, I'd say give it a try. It doesn't have enough readers. Still updating regularly and frequently.
yeah archipelago is p cool guys
Also hey guys the Monster Pulse guest strip, I'm havin' laffs up to HERE with this.
ha ha what's all this old crap Past Me put in his signature, get that stuff outta there

Man, I'm debating whether or not we need a Captain SNES thread. There's so much to talk about, but I feel like it'd just be Solaris and me talking about it.
Yeaaaa, on the other hand, it isn't like thread space is SUPER LIMITED FOREVER and at worst it is you and me for a while and then we sort of awkwardly "forget" about the thread, best case is that it turns out there were other people who read it but didn't want to clutter this thread or something!
Is- is that a blood monster?
Also, how does Monster Pulse not have its own thread yet?
Anyone read the Tower of God?
I wasn't sure at first, but it really looks set out to be good.
Warning: TVTropes link
Okay! Sorry, should of done that, forgot.
Being a webtoon translation, it requires a lot of scrolling down.
I don't normally admit to reading The Oatmeal, but the feud with Funnyjunk that has raised obscene amounts of money for charity is pretty awesome.
