Working Daze follows the employees trapped at MacroMicroMedia. MMM is a wanna-be software giant, and it's staffed by geeks and clueless management types. VP Rita will try anything that might make a little money (though her ideas usually don't.) Underpaid Dana carries he place and keeps it running, while overpaid Ed sleeps all day. Roy and Kathy are made for each other, and everyman Jay never knows when to keep his opinions to himself. Writer/creator John Zakour is a humor/sci-fi writer, whose work includes the Zach Johnson detective novels. Artist Scott Roberts was a longtime contributor to Nickelodeon Magazine, and is the author of the fantasy novel The Troubling Stone. John and Scott met when they both worked on the Rugrats newspaper strip.

The most beloved comic strip in history is an American cultural icon.
Prickly City is a comic strip about the friendship between Winslow, a Democratic coyote pup, and Carmen, a straight and narrow conservative kid. Somehow, they make it work.
Dogs, bosses, garden slugs, who sits next to who at Thanksgiving, cheating at golf, fretting the night away, carping couples on long trips, eating over the sink, toenail clippings, cosmic order, hairballs, flop sweat, coughing into one's elbow, clogged pipes, clogged arteries, parking crooked at the mall. That's what real life is all about. And that's what Real Life Adventures is all about. For nearly two decades, Lance (Aldrich) and Gary (Wise) have drawn, and drawn from, the everyday stuff that we all slog through. And on any given day, they like to think their little square slice of life is a nice change from the rickety roller coaster the rest of the world seems to be. Want to share your life's goofiosity with them? Just post here.

This idiosyncratic single-panel strip takes bizarre and unexpected detours through pop culture and modern society, delighting in witty wordplay, artistic absurdity, and puns so outrageous you'll have to laugh.
SPECIAL NOTE: As of August 26, 2015, Basic Instructions is now in reruns. See the final comic here. Follow from the start here. Basic Instructions started out as a small side feature Scott Meyer created to entertain people who came to his website looking to hire a comedian. It wasn't long before the comic was far more popular than anything Scott ever did as a comedian.Basic Instructions is a series of guides meant to help you lead a better life. They cover topics as diverse as "How to Deal with Boredom" and "How to Travel Back in Time to Deliver a Dire Warning to Your Former Self". Basic Instructions is populated with exaggerated versions of Scott, his family and his friends, which has caused no small amount of unpleasantness.
Poor Ziggy. He’s perpetually one step behind, one nickel short, one lane away from the fast lane. But we love him for it, because everyone feels like Ziggy now and then.

Whether they are arguing about The Perfesser’s bad writing or offering each other advice on the opposite sex, Shoe's treetop crew of characters maintains a comical, spirited banter.

F Minus is short on life lessons, precious moments, and pearls of wisdom. Instead, this absurdist single panel comic tackles life's serious issues, pins them to the ground and steals their lunch money. Then it feels a little bit guilty and gives some of it back.
