    GU Comics is a single panel webcomic written, drawn, and colored by Woody Hearn. Established July 10, 2000 and launched August 15, 2000, GU is published, free, five times a week on its own web site. The comic focuses primarily on popular video games; but, it also comments on gaming industry and community news, often lampoons gamers in general through the adventures of Woody and his fictional roommate, Ted, and occasionally parodies contemporary social, political, and personal issues related to the online and general video game world. Driven as it is by the ever changing videogame industry, continuity of the story line is not important, though it does have a few recurring themes.

    Penny Arcade is a webcomic focused on video games and video game culture, written by Jerry Holkins and illustrated by Mike Krahulik. The comic debuted in 1998 on the website loonygames.com. Since then, Holkins and Krahulik have established their own site, which is typically updated with a new comic strip each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The comics are accompanied by regular updates on the site's blog.

    Ctrl+Alt+Del (abbreviated CAD) is a gaming-related webcomic and animated series written by Tim Buckley. The name of the comic refers to the Windows command Control-Alt-Delete.[2] Premiering on October 23, 2002, the comic's focus has gradually shifted away from single strip gags towards longer story arcs and greater continuity through the use of video game references. Ctrl+Alt+Del currently is updated every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

    Looking for Group is a fantasy-themed Canadian webcomic written by Ryan Sohmer and drawn by Lar DeSouza. The Comic follows the adventures of Cale'Anon and Richard, as well as their companions. Since its launch on November 26, 2006, it has received positive attention from the webcomics community at large.

    Dark Legacy Comics is a series of World of Warcraft-related comics drawn by Arad Kedar (Keydar). The comic began in February of 2006 as a series of quickly drawn comics for the benefit of a few in-game friends. Since then it has gradually built up a large fan base.

    Hahaha, CAD. No. Just... just no. The only way CAD is funny is involuntarily.

    Other video game-ish comics: VG Cats, Order of the Stick, The Noob, and one that really deserves to be mentioned because Chris Hanel who works at Carbine (I believe he's on the cinematics team currently) is one of two people making it: The Daily Blink.

    I've thoroughly enjoyed http://trenchescomic.com/ which is a collaboration of the PA guys with pvponline. It is more of a story arc and only started up in March.

    For any of the old EQ players, the long running but slowly updated WTF Comics is a good read. I would think the general story of it is probably fun for everyone but if you get all of the EQ jokes (particularly from the early pages) it adds a whole extra element.
