5 Top Web Comics for Adults

Reading web comics on the weekends could be a nice way to freshen up your mind after five days of busy schedule.

This list contains some of my top web comics for adults, especially geek adults. My love for all things tech is reflected in this list too.

1. The Joy Of Tech

The Joy Of Tech is a popular web comic based on pop culture and sarcastic technology jokes. The comic mainly targets Apple products, their culture and the fanboys. It’s usually a hilarious read.

2. Indexed

Indexed is not exactly a web comic. It primarily publishes charts, graphs and diagrams that portray weird, and often sensible but funny statistics. An innovative venture, no doubt.

3. Xkcd

It’d be blasphemous to not include Xkcd in this list, especially when I’ve already said that most of the comics in the list are geared towards tech jokes and satire. And this one doesn’t need an introduction, does it?

4. Dilbert

Dilbert’s online version is something I have to read everyday. It’s too funny to ignore. Office humor at its best.

5. PHD – Piled Higher And Deeper

If you are a student, you’d love PHD or Piled Higher And Deeper. It’s mainly about student life hassles and fun.

    Webcomics.. that’s my biggest bookmarks folder 🙂

    But if i’d have to pick something geek-related:
    http://www.explosm.net/comics/ (today’s comic isn’t that great, but the rest is well worth it)

    And of course all series from http://www.inktank.com (especially the now-finished Angst Technology)

    Of course I have always loved Dilbert, but I have never seen the Indexed before and I really liked the site. Thanks for the list.
    Oh I also think http://crazyideafactory.com deserves a mention.

    I love http://www.leasticoulddo.com/
    XKCD is up on my top favorite list as well, but I think Least I Could Do is my favorite 😀

  7. Jason Finnerty on the 26th July

    It’s been a bit since they’ve done anything new – think the author is on hiatus at the moment – but they still update daily, and they’re still just as funny!


    got an afternoon that you want to kill – and/or you’ve got any connection to IT support – you’d be hard pressed to find anything better.
