Top 10 list of geeky math comics / webcomics

I’m a math geek, so I enjoy reading the occasional comic strip that’s math related. Here is my list of the top 10 webcomics/comics that I read on a regular basis:

1. Foxtrot – Surely, everyone knows this one. It occasionally has a lot of math humor but is currently on a Sunday only publication schedule.

2. xkcd – Updated every Mon, Wed, Fri, and a very popular webcomic online.

3. Abstruse Goose – Funny webcomic updated regularly, but often physics related as well.

4. Spiked Math – New daily webcomic in color (this should be on the top of the list since I created it ;-))
5. (x, why?) – A funny webcomic, and has over 350 comics published to date.

6. Brown Sharpie – Updated every Mon, Wed, Fri, and can be quite humorous.

7. Brightly Wound – Often contains physics and astronomy as well.

8. twisted pencil – Usually updated Tue/Thu and contains lots of puppets.

9. mathTICS
– Usually has some pretty funny strips. Not sure if the author is as
active right now and the archive only has the first 100 strips.

10. Indexed – Interesting concept. Mostly consists of venn diagrams and graphs.
