Shaenon Pimps Webcomics

Apparently there's a thing today where webcartoonists are supposed to recommend other webcomics. It goes without saying that you should be reading the comics on Modern Tales, which I edit, and I think it's pretty widely known that I'm a fan of Phil and Kaja Foglio's Girl Genius. So what else?
- Knowledge Is Power. I liked Irony Chan's previous webcomic, "Get Medieval," and I was happy to pick up her other current webcomic, "Dumnestor's Heroes," for Modern Tales. But this one has been growing on me too. It's about college students who, thanks to a spacetime accident, acquire superpowers based on their majors. What does the English major get? The power to alter reality, bitches.
- Dicebox. Still the best comic ever about itinerant female miners in outer space. Who are married. The latest chapter ended recently, so now's a good time to catch up.
- The Chronicles of William Bazillion. Andrew's evil-minded comic about a boy adventurer. The current storyline is entitled "The Race for Santa's Nazi Gold," which is probably all you need to know.
