Adventurers! is a webcomic authored by Mark Shallow and hosted by Keenspot. The comic is set in the world of a stereotypical console role-playing game filled with every single cliché imaginable - it probably wouldn't make a very good actual game. Though crudely drawn, it offers a large amount of jokes at the expense of all kinds of RPG games. Adventurers! is also the oldest and likely the best known of the scarce few comics of its kind. ...more on Wikipedia about "Adventurers!"

Contemplating Reiko is a webcomic by New York born artist Vincent Grisanti. A celebration of dark humor, the Contemplating Reiko comics primarily consist of single-panel, black and white cartoon gags, with the notable addition of the sparing use of the color red. There are also some Contemplating Reiko animated flash cartoon shorts, very similar in style to their comic strip counter-parts. ...more on Wikipedia about "Contemplating Reiko"
Digital Purgatory or DP is a webcomic created and written by Nix Karcel. It originally began with illustrations by Scott Ramsoomair of VGCats but later changed artists and is now currently drawn by Donald Lozen. The name refers to the idea that we live in a 'Digital' age and that technology has made things worse, not better, by causing people to rely heavily upon it, so much so that they have become grossly incompetent and lazy. The main character Nix therefore is trapped in his own personal notion of " Purgatory" since he is forced to deal with them. Published once a week on its own web site every Monday, it features the often Office/Politics geared antics of a rag-tag group of social deviants working at a Corporate Software firm in Canada. ...more on Wikipedia about "Digital Purgatory"
Written and drawn by Josh Sortelli, Elf Only Inn is a webcomic set in the virtualization of a fantasy chat room. Though its cast represents a broad spectrum of gaming, fantasy, horror, and science fiction genres, each character is actually an avatar for a chat room participant. Represented through their characters, it is about the relationships, neuroses, and sub-cultures that grow up around online communities. The Inn itself is a room within a larger BBS, though the exact technology involved -- whether it is chat or an Internet forum -- is vague. It is ostensibly dedicated to fantasy role-playing, and elves in particular, but in reality, very little quality role-playing takes place, and elves are in the minority. ...more on Wikipedia about "Elf Only Inn"

The site updates irregularly. ...more on Wikipedia about "Neglected Mario Characters"

No Need for Bushido is a webcomic started on April 11, 2002 on Comic Genesis (then Keenspace). The comic is drawn by Alex Kolesar and written by Joseph Kovell. Its content and title are based on various influences from such anime and manga as Tenchi Muyo! (which has a series of volumes titled "No Need for Tenchi") and Rurouni Kenshin, on which the series is most obviously parodied, though there are many other references that may be more easily missed. Alex's artistic style too is influenced by, but not restricted to, the manga and anime styles, while Joe's writing style is famously humourous, unique and random. The series is a mixture of anachronism, exaggerated action, and comedy based in a parodied feudal Japan. ...more on Wikipedia about "No Need for Bushido"
