Webcomic List

I periodically recommend webcomics to other people, and it occurred to me that it'd be handy to have a master list somewhere with proper links. (The links I use for myself go to the latest page, but that often contains spoilers, so the links I give other people go to the first page or archives.) I hope to add more information to this post in the future (like actual descriptive descriptions).

The "per year" stat counts number of pages posted from January 2013 through December 2013. List updated and links checked January 11, 2014, with new additions bolded. (update in progress)
