    Garfied minus Garfield? Sounds like a great one to read. I'm surprised Marc Fishman didn't suggest it yet!

      What was I supposed to do? It was a big topic of discussion. I couldn't leave it out just because your audience already knows it's awesome.Also, I'm amused by my apparently exuberance to make sure everyone was reading XKCD. I've got it up there twice!

        It's all good Chuck. I just like to be a nudge. :)

        XKCD was a bad edit on my part. Fixed now. (Originally, it had shown up in the print section as well, so I moved it.)

      "Garfield minus Garfield" isn't under the radar, it's ART!http://www.comicmix.com/news/2009/03/30/webcomics…XKCD is so far under the radar, it had to be mentioned twice. Maybe that's how nice the comic is, "So nice, they had to mention it twice!"What is First Comics's Warp doing on this list? It's been under the radar for 25 years! Warp featured one of the greatest comic book creations of all time, the City of Cynosure, located at the nexus of all realities. Now that would make the perfect backdrop for a comic book! You could have action, adventure, magic, fantasy, science fiction, romance, even noir crime drama all rolled into one comic! A comic like that would be ultra-cool! Somebody like ComicMix or IDW ought to publish a comic like that. Something gritty, but maybe with a back-up feature set in the same city (maybe with some of the same characters even) that could be funny. The lighter side of Cynosure. I bet that might be hilarious. Think of the possibilities!

    Alice! is a geat comic – but the last update was about three years ago. A new series was promised, but apparently never materialised.Garfield Minus Garfield runs on goComics, as does Brooke McEldowney's Pibgorn (don't bother to click on that link if you're at work; at least one nannyware company has it listed under "sex"…) and Justin Thompson's Vaughn-Bode-influenced-but-generally-safe-for-work Mythtickle.I might also plug Misfile! {"In one little corner of the universe, there's nothing more irritating than a misfile…"} and Menage a 3 (definitely NSFW most of the time, but often hilarious…)

    Ummm, i had links in that comment and they appear to have Gone Away…

    The link for Lady in Shadow goes to XKCD…again.

    If you don't mind the general weirdness, I'll add my third choice from that panel, El Goonish Shive.Glenn, Chuck and anyone else reading: thanks for being there. That was a really fun panel.

    one comic I don't think they talked about but the writer was at the convention was No Parking @ http://www.bymagic.com. Its way under the radar because I never heard of it before and without icon I never would have.

  8. Carl Fink says:

    No Parking Web Comic (the official name) is by long-time I-CON volunteer John Sheehan. I probably should have mentioned it, but John did about 20 panels at this convention and I figured anyone who cares about comics heard him talk about it.
