Webcomics rotation: 2012 preview

Just wanted to plug the good stuff on the internets. As always, I have added what I believe are appropriate content warnings.

Old Stuff
In roughly descending order of awesomeness:

New Stuff
Added to the rotation/still on probation:

The last two of these are by the same artist; I think she's got a lot of promise though I'm not sure where she's going to go with the story. Hell's Corners is interesting because it teases but then avoids one of the most common (and annoying) webcomic tropes, the clueless man-child protagonist. It also has nice shades of Mnemesis, which I've reviewed before.

Out of the Rotation
Stuff that just couldn't make the cut:

I added GWS at a point where I felt I needed some more diversity in my rotation, and it served the purpose, but it's kinda boring me now.

I'd probably still read PA religiously if I were still in the games industry. As is, I don't play enough new games anymore for it to be relevant.

Are you familiar with Spacetrawler? It's currently my favorite webcomic. Of the others I endorse all of the "old stuff" (and Gunnerkrigg is the only one I'm not currently keeping current with).

I'm a bit of an art snob. If it's not stick figures, it has to be really sharp. I don't think I could handle Spacetrawler.

How about Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal? The art is definitely neither sharp nor stick-figures, but it's squarely aimed in the same vicinity as XKCD in terms of content:

SMBC is funny.

I'll add it to the rotation and see if it sticks.

Thanks!
