It's been a pretty radical past few weeks for comics both online and off. There's the metric ton of news that came pouring out of Comic-Con 2010, there's the recently released film adaptation of Scott Pilgrim, and then, of course, there's the game adaptation of the film adaptation of Scott Pilgrim. Sadly, ev'ry rose must have its thorn, and earlier this week, said thorn was identified: The beloved Sunday funnies staple known as "Cathy" will come to a close in October. Should you find yourself in a beverage today, we humbly request that you pour one out.

If you're not too torn up about the news we just delivered, you should check out our seven favorite gaming-centric webcomics from this past week, posted below. Make sure you vote for your favorite in the poll after the jump!
