I've seen webcomic recommendation threads elsewhere, but I always get overwhelmed and apathetic when confronted with a wall of names and URLs.
So, to avoid such a thing, I recommend that people pick a moment that shows the quality/potential of a good webcomic and post it, along with a link to the webcomic itself.

Like so:

The first 25 pages of Tales of the Questor hooked me. I've been reading ever since, and it's only gotten more and more awesome and readworthy. It's hard to find a single moment that encapsulates everything about why I love it, since most of them span multiple pages, but here's three moments I love for very different reasons.

Spoiler


I tried to lean towards the earlier pages so as to avoid spoilers.

Another great one is The Whiteboard. Technically, it's about paintball and a group of people obsessed with it. I've never played paintball in my life, and yet I can't stop reading.

And so people say to me, "How do I know if a word is real?" You know, anyone who's read a children's book knows that love makes things real. If you love a word, use it! That makes it real. Being in the dictionary is an artificial distinction; it doesn't make the word any more real than any other word. If you love a word, it becomes real.

Unsounded. The first few pages alone were enough to sell me.

But then it gets even more amazing as it goes...

DM of the Rings was far better, but agreed that Darths and Droids is worth a read. I find it easier to let them build up and just read a whole chapter in one go rather than check in weekly like... literally any other webcomic.

Kudos, Yinglung! This is an excellent idea. I'm going to have to put up some recommendations when I get home.
As Promised:

Bouletcorp: http://english.bouletcorp.com/2012/08/21/sunday-brunch/
A 22 page short. It's all one image, so there's no point in posting it.


Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal: Humour of the nerdiest kind, served five days a week. The most consistently funny comic I know.
Spoiler


The Fancy Adventures of Jack Cannon: Watch Jack fight a dinosaur. This scene takes place in outer space. It makes sense in context.
Spoiler

One more and a bump.

El Goonish Shive
A very strange comic about young people getting in trouble with magic. The name doesn't actually mean anything.
Spoiler


Edit- added the link.

You forgot the most important part: the link.

So, are we helping anybody? Are you guys finding new and exciting reading material? Am I being helpful or just annoying? Your feedback is what lets me tell the difference. Did you use one of these webcomics to put out a fire? Did you meet your true love over a webcomic you learned about here? Send your Snapple stories to NGA at viewtopic.php?f=14&t=813!

El Goonish Shive has been a fun read so far. Catching up on a decade's worth of strips has been a good time-killer for the last few days. I'm not very far along right now (just hit 2004ish), but it seems like a comic that I could share with some friends of mine.

JL8 has a very simple concept: What would the Justice League look like as 8-year-olds?

Like this


Rice Boy, on the other hand, is a surreal fairy-tale for adults, and it is finished, so you know you can read the whole thing! I have not yet had the time to read the rest of the author's comics, but I can definitely recommend Rice Boy!

To give you a basic idea of the plot


Personally, I don't have much time to read web comics these days, but I hope someone else can read and enjoy these!

Dresden Codak takes forever to update, but it is pretty amazing and the art goes from good to epic.

Yay, I'm appreciated!

Now for another recommendation - Ava's Demon.
It's a story set in outer space about a girl who's possessed by a demon (or something). To put it mildly they don't get along. But they're going to have to get along if their going to survive/conquer Titan.
Crazy-nice art


Nedroid Picture Diaries is a surreal comedy strip about the nonsense adventures of a bird named Reginald and... whatever Beartato is. A strong contender for my favorite web comic.

When I first saw this thread, I couldn't recall a single comic that just gripped me with a single page. Some days ago I saw this image of String Theory and read through it in two sittings.
Spoiler

I think I have a boner for the protagonist.

I was introduced to Order of the Stick through the F&S crew. Specifically, I saw one page quite far in (for the time; #326 of what is now over 900 pages long) that made me go on an archive binge.
The page in question.
It of course can be read at GantitP.com

Erfworld was highly entertaining while I read it as well, after I caught up with OOTS, since volume 1 is also on Giant in the Playground. Basic idea: stereotypical D&D nerd (i.e. fat, works at Kinko's or something, way too in to his DMing) is transported into a world that actually has rules of physics like the board games he plays, and he must lead the army that summoned him to battle.
I guess I should include a picture (link).
------------------------------------
I do not recall how I got into Go Get a Roomie!; I believe it may have been a banner add from Homestuck. I can't really post an image because most of them are moderately NSFW (Roomie is naked A LOT) and because I'm can't really recall where I got sucked in. Here's the homepage, though: http://gogetaroomie.com/
------------------------------------
While I have never actually spent time to catch up,* Lackadaisy is pretty funny and engaging. The elevator pitch is this: Prohibition-era St. Louis with anthropomorphic cats, where the main characters are running a speakeasy.
Here's some that won me over (but not part of the series itself)

Something from the story that made me want to read (but haven't actually read to that point yet)


*especially since I found it on DeviantArt just before Homestuck, and as said on PBSIdeaChannel, I had to clear my nights and weekends... for the next three months
------------------------------------
I'm surprised no one has mentioned Homestuck yet. Of course, the problem is that it goes from
this
to this *warning*: spoilery but so far in to the series that you might be okay (also, it's flash, so click on your home computer)
over a long course (page is #8,178) and you pretty much need to read experience it in isolation, because it's all about the twists. Also the first three Acts may need to be powered through because they set the stage, like the first season of Avatar.




KeeperofManyNames recently shared "Our Toyota Was Fantastic" from Bouletcorp; and between that and what's been shown here, I think I've just been sold. It seems so fantastic and fully aware of how to use art style to its benefit.

-----------------

I know Aaarrrgh and others have shared JL8 before, but I'd never looked it up. I just might now that I've seen those few strips. Though I still feel the jokes may fall short since I have literally ZERO comic book super-hero knowledge.*

*I didn't want to say comic book in general because I recently bought V for Vendetta because there was a sale for the 5th of November, I found some recent Magic comics (though didn't really enjoy them), am reading Transmetropolitan which a friend showed me, and bought issues 1-8 of the MLP series (which is the only reason I managed to catch V for Vendetta on sale).



EDIT: Order of the Stick and Erfworld pics cannot be hotlinked, so I included links to the pages i wanted to show.

Luna, your OOTs and Erfworld images aren't displaying.
I'm a fan of both comics by the way. (Wish Erfworld's archives were laid out a little more neatly). Looks like I'm going to have to start reading Lackadaisy.
