Cartoons Online

Fried Society - Hilarious tidbits of modern life.

Kevin & Kell - Can marriage last between a wolf and a rabbit? This one has a trend toward pretty long plotlines, so read the back issues.

IT'S MUSKRAT CENTRAL, JOHN KOVALIC'S HOME PAGES! - Amusing.

Sherman's Lagoon - OK, this one is Dave's, not mine. I haven't checked it out.

Sluggy Freelance - Possibly the funniest thing on the Internet. Definitely read the archives. Especially the Slug Files. I was howling.

STUDIO FOGLIO- the art and writing of Phil and Kaja Foglio - There's not much of the actual art on this site (I suppose they've gotta eat somehow), but it's still nifty.

User Friendly the Comic Strip - A small ISP populated by Quake-happy techs, a friendly dust puppy, and an AI named Erwin. Wackiness ensues and Microsoft takes a lot of damage.

Yamara - Highly peculiar.
