20 of the Funniest Webcomics Online Today

While many of your favorite daily newspaper strips also appear on the internet, we've dug up 20 of the funniest comics and blogs available exclusively online. From sardonic bunny rabbits to weirdly unpronounceable ("xkcd," wha?), there is a webcomic for just about every humor fan. If you don't find something you like on this list, we've got more funny webcomics for you to try out. In the meantime, clear a few hours from your schedule and check out what we've discovered, below:

Happy Bunny by Jim Benton

 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 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.

Awkward Yeti Brain and Heart

 theawkwardyeti.com

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 experienced the battle between heart (emotion) and brain (logic) must check out Seluk's website.

Owl Turd comic

OwlTurd.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. 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.

The Adventures of Dr. McNinja

drmcninja.com 

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' 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

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." Neely combines pop culture references, clever humor, and an off-kilter worldview to produce crazy strips that you'd never, ever find in your local newspaper.

Superpoop comic

Superpoop.com 

"Superpoop" isn't really a webcomic at all but a collection of captioned photos—though Drew refers to his work as "photo comics." The photos are fairly random but feature political figures and depictions of current events more often than not. The result is extremely clever and completely hilarious.

Daisy Owl

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. It's smart, well plotted, funny, and popular—and, 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

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

Garfield Minus Garfield

This webcomic is exactly what it sounds like. Dan Walsh, with the blessing of "Garfield" creator, Jim Davis, removes the Garfield character from "Garfield" comic strips, leaving Garfield's owner, Jon Arbuckle, talking to himself like a schizophrenic. Hands down, this is one of the oddest and funniest things on the web.

Murray The Nut

Murray The Nut

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

Overcompensating

"Overcompensating" has one of the deepest wells of quality content online, webcomic or otherwise. With its blend of plot-based jokes, some scruffy lead characters, and some crude humor, it draws comparisons to the popular TV comedy "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."

Nedrioid

Nedrioid

"Nedroid" is a daily webcomic by cartoonist Anthony Clark (who goes by the pseudonym Nedroid). 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

Penny Arcade

Video-game fans rejoice: Here's a comic aimed at you. Created by writer Jerry Holkins and illustrator Mike Krahulik, "Penny Arcade" appears three times a week and stars a pair of slacker gamer heroes named Tycho and Gabe. Even if you don't play video games, the strip's easygoing humor and broad pop-culture references will have you laughing in no time.

Toothpaste for Dinner

Toothpaste for Dinner

Imagine if 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

"Perry Bible Fellowship" is hard to describe. Imagine a more twisted—and sometimes dirty—version of Gary Larson's classic "The Far Side" mixed with the humor of "Family Guy" and you're almost there. The award-winning strip by Nicholas Gurewitch is drawn in beautiful, hand-colored images that look like something you'd find in a children's book—but they're for adults only.

White Ninja Comics

White Ninja Comics

"White Ninja Comics" stars yet another ninja (the titular hero, White Ninja). But unlike Dr. McNinja, the protagonist of Scott Bevan's 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 grocery shopping and eating dinner. And it’s in these seemingly boring scenarios where the strip's humor thrives.

Buttersafe

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 twice-weekly strip. A must-read for fans of "Family Guy" and "The Simpsons."

Wondermark

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

"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 works as a web designer when he's not coming up with bizarre and absurd things for Lincoln to say.

xkcd

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 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 internet or otherwise.
