An unlucky bunny. A gargoyle attending college. That moment when a robot becomes sentient. And other fun webcomics available on WebToon to brighten your day.
I’ll get personal here: I haven’t been feeling well the past few weeks. Whenever I’m down these days, one of the things I do to get through the gloom is read funny and heartwarming webcomics. This month, I read twelve of them on WebToon, so I figured I’d share (because why not?). Hopefully at least one (or two, or more) will cheer someone else up. Enjoy!
Gecko Chan by Meritxell Garcia (NEW!)
Gecko Chan, a monster with abilities they must keep secret, adjusts to a new town and attends a school.
So there is an episode in this charming webcomic in which Gecko Chan talks about his gender identity (genderfluid) and decides to use his pronouns. This part left me with tears in my eyes the first time around. I love that these stories keep coming.
Rooftops and Roommates by Zaanart (NEW!)
Jeb, a gargoyle, disguises himself as a human while attending college. He wants to major in architecture and make friends, but it can be hard to make sure he doesn’t accidentally turn into public. And there are these ghosts that scare him. A comedic episodic webcomic.
Doc and the Deathbot by Steve Ogden Art
A time-traveling death robot joins a plague doctor. The two face the Black Death, going through complicated situations and comedic moments. I admire the witty humor of this episodic webcomic.
Lars by The Awkward Yeti (Completed)
The comical life journey of a Yeti named Lars. Dealing with awful talk on social media, trying to figure out the point of looking at art in a museum and a bird stealing its identity.
Cluster Fudge by John McNamee (Completed)
Just a comic with robots, wizards and other things the creator cares about. But it’s a fun read that tackles everyday disappointments.
Benji Nate’s Lorna (Completed)
Lorna lives with her best friend Norma and another roommate whose name she keeps forgetting. Kidnapping, making ransom money, visiting his granny cat and threatening people with a knife. An entertaining webcomic.
CARL by Hussein Traboulsi & Claudia Z.
Carl, a robot psychiatrist, becomes sentient after struggling to understand the emotions of his human patients. His creator (whom he calls dad) creates another Carl, who also becomes sentient. Eventually, the public and the media are concerned about the idea of sentient AI.
Okay, this webcomic goes to some tragic and awkward places, but the endearing character relationships and soul-searching moments deserve a spot on this list.
Average Adventures of an Average Girl by lallirr (Completed)
A webcomic about the life and misadventures of an average Italian woman. She lives an average life, looks “average” to most people, and lives average times (oh, really?). That, and bad hair days and chasing her dreams of becoming an artist.
Hapi Buni by Ryan Pagelow (Completed)
Okay, this bunny is really unlucky. I’m talking about being constantly rejected by the rabbit he’s in love with, being trapped in a world of books and dying there, living with a cynical father and other horrible fates. But in the end, there is hope.
Library Ghost by Mikey Heller (Completed)
A ghost haunts a library. However, he is also working there. Sexual innuendo, pranks and just general ghost shenanigans.
Small World by Wonson Jin (the creator’s site is not available)
Boyfriends Robin and Julien spend their days together cuddling, playing video games and supporting each other.
Adventures of God by Teo and Corey
Get more than a peek into heaven and what God does other than answer prayers. Apparently he drinks a lot, not everyone in heaven is happy, and he doesn’t always make the best decisions for his angels and humanity. That, and he sends homosexuals to hell to relax with the devil. This webcomic really makes me laugh and go through almost all the episodes in one sitting.
Is there a comedic webcomic you would like to recommend? Please feel free to comment below. I would love to hear from you!
