I read my "regular" webcomic list through piperka.net but when I feel like trying something new I often look to sites that seem to be a cross between old-fashioned artist collectives and print anthologies. Zuda, regardless of its contest hook, is a great place to check out lots of new stuff, ACT-I-VATE is also regularly pulling in new comics (as well as updating many existing ones) and Top Shelf 2.0 has some nice stuff as well. There was a good review of the many great webcomics that have appeared at Smith Magazine’s website, including A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge by Josh Neufeld and the more recent Next Door Neighbor project. There is also always new stuff at Dark Horse’s MySpace Webcomic anthology, including a two-page Sinfest special this month.
Anyone want to throw out their current favorite spots?
