If you like the LFG humor you could check out www.licd.com. Not set in a fantasy setting, but the humor is refreshingly offensive at times. Same creators as LFG.

Any World of Warcraft-nerds could check out www.darklegacycomics.com. Used to be fun, though the author has lost a bit of his inspiration I think.

Finally there is some action again in the OotS...Belkar has really redeemed all halfling clichés, starting with Tolkien (yeah, yeah, admittely he invented them, but were they cool?=)...

http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0612.html

Look at this happy face...a nature-loving ranger (especially the 'natural-selection-enhanced-by-Belkar' bit), accompanied by his loyal cat companion (go Scruffster!). How can you not love that face?

And heed the wisdom hidden behind those compassionate eyes:

"Solve a man's problems with violence, help him for a day. Teach a man to solve his problems with violence, help him for a lifetime."

From the former dragon magazine cartoonist Phil Foglio who used to to the phil and dixie comic. It's great, nice fantasy world developped there and nice old-school type of drawings.

I found this one today... And spent it reading from the beginning. They are surprisingly charismatic, the little goblins, and the story is great.  :)

To my shock I just noticed that nobody had said anything about xkcd in this thread. While not directly game related, is is one of the funniest webcomics out there, with a lot of profound things to be said about life.

I'm also a great fan of ctrl+alt+delete

Happy reading to everybody.

XKCD is going a bit low on inspiration IMO, I hope he finds back his creative spark soon I am still very hopeful, however here are two other comics I think deserve a measure of attention.

http://www.blastwavecomic.com/ , I tought some people could find proper interest in this one, as PBEMS are more often than not dens of good ol' geekdom. This comic is all about infrantry kind-of wargames clichés and is quite sharply done even tho the updates are very erratic(several months sometimes between updates). I think the artist is a game concept artist and is swedish or norvegian (at least I am pretty sure he is a descendant of a big hairy viking country other than finnish or icelandish) and the art is all computer pencil.

second one is http://www.sinfest.net/ , a possibly offending comic for very sensible christians. Christianity-themed sarcasm cartoon done in old-fashion panel style by profesionnal cartoonist. The dude is often keen on his insights even tho I think he has been going slow since a couple of months but if you check the archives they are often worth it. (took me two weekend to go through it when I found it, but couldn't stop).

just a sidenote. english is not a native language and its especially obvious when I am tired, even tho I will come try and often re-edit my posts to avoid sounding too foreign.

Questionable Content (http://questionablecontent.net/) is great. The early artwork was fairly primitive, but it's been much improved and it's consistently funny.

My wife and I play the Questionable Content Random game.  You go in and click the random button to find a place to re-read a handful of comics during short moments of free time.

It's a 'game' in the same way Russian Roulette is, because there's always the chance that you'll wind up in the first 100 or so comics and the horror of the bad art will melt your face.  ;)   But Jacques is practically the poster child for "Learn by Doing" - he started off with terrible, hideous art skills, but he drew comics 5 days a week anyways, worked determinedly and consistently to learn new skills, and the comic is beautiful now.  I'm intensely impressed by that.
