Webcomics I read

PLAN: Probably keep this page, but drop the various categories.  Drop comics no longer on the web or that I've forgotten. 

I am a mild webcomic junkie.  No, trust me, this is mild.  Some people have lists twice as long as this.  Anyway, this is a comprehensive list of the webcomics I read or used to read regularly.  I've provided a 20-word synopsis/review of each below.  I've also ranked them from 0 to 10 on five categories:

Note that some of these categories are meant only to be descriptive, with higher numbers not necessarily designating a better comic.  What's more, they're far from exhaustive.  For that reason, I've included a seventh category:

Note that the Overall rating is not meant to designate how good a comic is universally, only how much it appeals to me.  If you think you share some of my tastes, you should find the higher-rated comics entertaining.  Naturally, almost all the comics here have above-average overall ratings--otherwise I wouldn't have read them!

Ended after 1000 strips.  The creator, however, is still putting out content at tailsteak.tk.
Talking molecules, earthworm, grassman, eyeball, living on a dead bear.  A brilliant thought experiment examining relations between creator and created.
