Something Positive 2008 February 12

The best webcomic you aren’t reading is Something Positive. Began in 2001 by RKMillholland, it is one of the most enjoyable cast-driven webcomics I have ever read. The story centers around Davan, a sarcastic 20something who loves comic books, gaming, theater and his bizarre cat Choo-Choo Bear. He is joined by friends and the story even includes his family. His two closest friends are PeeJee, the purple-haired Canadian and Aubrey, who runs an erotic phone service especially for nerds.

In the last eight years, this webcomic has developed a cast, loveable and sometimes bizarre. I picked it up in 2003 and have recently begun rereading the archives again.

I post strips that are particulary funny, but what impresses me the most is how much it can move me. At one point, a character died and I remember sitting at work and crying over the death of the character. (I was working at a call center at the time and was in between calls. “Sniff, thank you for calling Customer Service, this is Megan…”)

I cannot recommend this comic enough. And unlike some people who write webcomics the author seems very down to earth. It is updated usually 5 times a week. Give it a try.


Another one of my favorites, even though I love the Flash’s Rogues Gallery…
