My Top 7 Single-Strip Webcomics

There are some incredible comics being published on the web these days, but what if you just want to read a strip or two instead of getting sucked into a full-blown story? Then single-strip comics are for you, and I’ve got 7 great ones to get you started!

What’s a single strip comic?

In comics, a panel is a single frame. Traditional daily comics consisted of three or four panels (a strip), and each strip could standalone outside of the overall plot of the comic. Thus “single strip” comics. (Ok, so I don’t actually know what these types of comics are called, but “single strip” makes sense to me)

Here are my top 7 single-strip comics:
