News In Webcomics: 5/3/09

This is the start of a new feature, News in Webcomics. It’ll basically just tell what’s happening currently in a few webcomics, as well as linking to them. It’ll probably show up about once a month. Yes, spoilers are contained! (And before you ask, I will be getting back to book reviews shortly…)

XKCD: (First Strip: xkcd.com/1, First Good Strip: xkcd.com/10) The Current Strip is #576, PACKAGES. The last truly amusing strip was #574, SWINE FLU. At the top of the strip, it states “Twitter is great for watching uninformed panics unfold live,” and then it shows some examples. I burst out laughing. XKCD is good for a laugh, although sometimes the jokes fall flat. It follows no plotline, but sometimes characters recur, including the iconic Black Hat Guy.

Order of the Stick: (First Strip: http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0001.html) The Current Strip is #650, A Lot Can Happen in Ten Minutes. I won’t comment too much on this, as it is extraordinarily plot critical and a BIG spoiler, but it’s getting VERY dramatic around here! The humor hasn’t been lost, though, and Belkar continues to give us the jokes we want. I’m looking forward to seeing Team Evil again…

Erfworld: (First Strip: http://www.giantitp.com/comics/erf0001.html) The current strip is #158. The end of Book 1 appears to be near, and things are drawing to a close. Ansom has been decrypted by Wanda, as has the whole army. I sense some struggle ahead, especially when Wanda, Stanley, Ansom, and Jillian reunite.

Irregular Webcomic: (First Strip: http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/1.html, First Good Strip: http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/5.html) The current strip is #2289. Well, the whole universe has been destroyed and then brought back, and everything’s starting from the beginning again. But a bit … different. Steve wants to shoot the Allosaurus?

Darths and Droids: (First Strip: http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0001.html) The current strip is #252, Dex Role. ┬áSally, having stopped playing Jar Jar, is now playing a new character. And he’s just as ridiculous as the first. I wonder how long this will last?
