Web Comics...

For some time now I've read a great many web comics on a daily basis. Some are good, some not so much. I thought I'd post a few here that have relevance to our current Savage Worlds campaign.

Darth & Droids

Darth & Droids is about a group of gamers playing through several extended sci-fi campaigns, with greed and blood-thirst mixing with the humor. What makes it extremely funny is that the players are playing through all the Star Wars movies (starting with the prequel series), and the person who makes the comment is basically just editting it together with word balloons. Funny stuff, but you should really read it from the beginning.

Servants of the Imperium

Servants of the Imperium is set in the Warhammer 40k universe, and the story follows an inquisitor named Lord Severus Hunt. With a team of goofy (yet incredibly violent) individuals, he tracks down aliens and heretics throughout the human universe. It's art style is very similar to the Order of the Stick.

Schlock Mercenary

Schlock Mercenary follows the adventures of a space mercenary company as it goes about it's job, centering mostly on a Sergeant Schlock, an amorphous blob creature with a penchant for carrying around a gigantically overpower plasma pistol. This comic has been around for a long, long time, and the creator has an extensive array of things to buy in his shop (including a calender showing some of the axioms of a successful mercenary, my favorite being the merc captain dressing down Sergeant Schlock with a city in the background burning, and the line underneath says 'FIRST pillage, THEN burn!').

  1. I almost forgot one:

    Weapon Brown

    This is Charlie Brown and all those older comic strips from the old newspapers, crossed with Fallout and Judge Dredd. Charlie Brown is now Weapon Brown after a horrible atomic conflict destroys most of the world. He's eeking out a living as a mercenary, fighting horrible mutated people and monsters that look a great deal like OTHER comic strip characters.
