Announcing The Sunday Funnies!


Grab a cup of coffee, put up your feet, and enjoy the first installment of our web comic collection, The Sunday Funnies.

We got so many fantastic entries to our Web Comic Contest that we had a really hard time choosing a winner. So we cheated a bit and named some Honorees, too, including the comics you'll be seeing every other weekend in The Sunday Funnies. If you enjoy them, make sure you show them some love in the comments.

Don't forget to check out the winner of the Web Comic Contest, Critical Miss, which starts this Tuesday, May 18!

Paused [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/comics/paused/7556-Paused-1]
Paused - The untold stories of characters when the game is paused... Being forced to live out your life as a computer game character can be quite grueling. Alive only when the power is on, these virtual folk get very limited time-off between slamming each other around, getting hopelessly lost in perilous terrain and experiencing death after death after death. In fact, the only break they get is when those six large letters interrupt the action, affording them the time to vent what is truly on their minds.

My favourite is name game. Sounds like an entry in one of those "You know you play too many videogames when..." threads.

Hm... pretty cool. But will new episodes of Critical Miss appear on the Escapist on Tuesdays( and in that case, is it every other Tuesday, or every Tuesday)?

These four are all quite funny, tough i didn't like Bumhug Parade that much. I'm a bit surprised Paused made it here, i thought the first tries weren't that great. But this one is funnier, so that settles that.

I seem to like The Escapist Radio Theater the most, the art style is nice , too.
In conclusion, looks like The Escapist managed to get some nice stuff on their page. Well done, and thanks!

Will be enjoying this!

Well this was a pleasant surprise. I especially like paused, but what about manly men doing manly things? (I think that's what it was called) It was hilarious.

Well, you got the 'Sunday' part right. I wouldn't wish to appear unecessarily harsh, but I hope future episodes will contain some humour and expand beyond what CAD, VGcats and every other webcomic has already done.

Coelasquid has gone ahead and made her own website for her comic. It's been running for some time now! Go ahead and check it out, it's pretty awesome. http://thepunchlineismachismo.com/

Ah good! I was wondering when this Webcomic was going to start. Shame I never entered, but I can't draw so maybe it was for the best.

Calumon: He had a really good idea too. : /

Excelent idea. The Escapist winds down over the weekends, and its great to have more cool content to look forward to.

Thank you, thank you for the shear awesomeness of this new web comic thing.
Now if you guys would [HEADING=1]fix that darn roof![/HEADING]
Every thing will be perfect.
Roof=the website that's been acting awfully cluncky lately. And I mean awfully!
Edit: I hope you're paying these guys(and galls) well, because they're making a really good job. Oh and did I mention "the roof"?
