We've featured Backward Compatible here on Comic Watch before, and the hits just keep on comin'. This episode is particularly timely, concerning itself with the recent speculation over the SciFi/Trion project. We have to admit, an episode of any television show spoken entirely in l33t would be diffi...

Those impish ne'er-do-wells at Penny Arcade have taken the reins and presented a comic replete with our two favorite topics: human-created abominations of nature, and Ponystars. Our admiration for the latter is obvious, but it could only take the talents of Messrs Brahe and Gabriel to perfectly evok...

Beloved videogame webcomic VG Cats has a consistently funny style, and in this episode, they take on the differences in online systems between the Big Three Consoles. How is this a Massively concern? The final panel takes a shot at both Sony's Home and Second Life. Warning: this comic is NSFW in bot...

This is a little off the beaten path, as far as this series of posts go. What's being highlighted here isn't an ongoing webcomic in the usual sense, but in the same vein as all the in-game comics that fans of WoW put together comes the first World of Kung Fu comic! Personally, I think they should ha...

This comic riffs on both MMOs and MILFs (note: NSFW language), but I can't find an attribution; if anyone knows who wrote/created this comic, please drop it in the comments. Note: The comic also features NSFW language. If this post seems a little short on explication, just read the strip; it says a...

Oskar Pannier & Marvin Clifford are the creators of 'Shakes and Fidget', a webcomic set in the World of Warcraft universe. Shakes and Fidget are a human and gnome, respectively, and they travel Azeroth for the sole purpose of getting into trouble, apparently. This works out well for all of us, a...

Oh, Penny Arcade, is there nothing you can't do? The fancy lads have taken on the news of in-process MMO LEGO Universe and applied conventional wisdom to the announcement. To wit: what if LU played like any other combat-oriented MMO? What strikes me most about this strip is the attention to detail -...

Christopher Stuck mocks his own entertainment choices in his comic Chocolate Shoes. An updated take on an old classic concept, it questions where the real value in life lies. Giggles aside, this argument rings more false than ever these days. Videogames are still new enough, anthropologically, to be...

On the previous Comic Watch, we gave some love to the incredible output of Aaron Williams. One of these, Backward Compatible, has stepped up with another MMO-based comic. This time, the light is shone on City of Heroes (and peripherally, World of Warcraft). It seems there's more of a link to your f...

Ahh, gold farming. It is, if you'll excuse the pun, a gold mine of comedy. This was proven most recently in the webcomic Extralife, which shows us a meeting between a player and an enterprising businessman. Actually, while this is obviously humor, it does give one pause to consider what sort of life...

Aaron Williams is a pedigreed gamer geek with no less than four comics to his name: Nodwick, a fantasy jaunt that pokes fun at RPG conventions; Backward Compatible, a comic about life at a gaming magazine; PS238, positing a high school filled with superpowered kids; and Full Frontal Nerdity, which t...
