Sunday Morning Funnies: The panda thing

Daily Quests
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Wee snacks. Holiday wishes. A trap. A dark wind. Plus: You might need a new tank.

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. Daily Quests is back! And if you somehow missed this gem the last time around, you should check it out from the beginning.

There is also a brand new comic to add to the list, thanks to a tip from solidus, called Questing Comics. There are fourteen pages so far, and I have linked to the first page this week. You can also read plenty about the comic and its creator, Emily, on its about page. Questing Comics will update Mondays.

In other news, Russell of Experience Boost is... still sick. However, his medicine has allowed him to resume his three-post-a-week schedule, so there are several updates to enjoy this week. In fact, there are four, so we even get a bonus. Plus, apparently, this week marked the end of what Russell "would call the first book ... were there to be books." Congratulations, Russell, and I hope things continue to look up from here for you.

Contested Territory also has an update this week, which I know has been eagerly anticipated. Maiu is still pretty busy, but she isn't going anywhere, and we've even been promised a holiday treat for the end of the month!

Finally, GU Comics has several WoW-related comics on the list this week, so don't miss them!

Sunday Morning Funnies: Montage time

Guilded Age
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Mike is getting some sleep. Thizzible needs some time for herself. Richard needs to make a change. Lissa finds blueprints. Plus: We're killing baddies! Well, most of us are.

Gratz celebrated its second-year anniversary last week! To celebrate, there's a bonus page up, with some interesting data at the bottom, like how Lackinganame estimates that he put in about 954 hours of work into Gratz this past year alone. So congratulations, Lackinganame, and thanks for devoting your free time to enriching ours!

I'd also like to emphasize how much Gratz has changed, and how much Lackinganame has grown in his style and skills. Watching artists and their comics develop and change has always been one of my favorite parts of following these comics week after week, year after year. Why not take a look back at Page 1, and then pop to the first digitally created page, and then check out this week's pages?

In other news, NPC has one more WoW standalone this week (which had me laughing), plus a new storyline related both to Christmas and to WoW. Fox Rain has posted the cover art for Chapter 5: The Sacrifice, which will start next week. Dark Legacy Comics is about garrison follower missions this week, and definitely shouldn't be missed. Finally, the latest Q&A on Kibble & Bit is a must-read!

Finally, for our news regarding absent comics. Best in Slot is not on the list this week, due to it being a busy season and, of course, the expansion. It may also be a bit late through the end of December, however, it will definitely update periodically! Experience Boost is back, but Russell is still sick, which makes it bittersweet. Get well soon, Russell!

Unfortunately, I also have to announce that Surviving Azeroth is closing back down. You can read why in Zuulzilla's own words. Good luck Zuulzilla; I will miss SA, but I wish you the best!

Sunday Morning Funnies: Fort business

From Draenor With Love
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Sleep is for the weak. Putting a dragon in a purse. A curse (maybe). A nightmare. Plus: The tears of a million complaints.

We have a few comics missing from our list this week. Hopefully, this is due to creators having some fun with the expansion and enjoying the holidays. The list of the missing includes: Surviving Azeroth, Guardians of the Garrison (which is definitely missing due to John spending time in Draenor!), Contested Territory, Teh Gladiators, The Warcraft Hero and Experience Boost.

But there's still plenty to read! Trigonometry Comics recently started a new chapter, and the Shattershore storyline on Gnomeregan Forever is really worth checking out if you haven't yet. Gratz Solace is also progressing, and this week, there is a bit of a style change in the first update that is quite effective, and does a great job at enhancing the next two updates.

In addition to most of our regular roster, Kibble & Bit posted a comic that starts a new storyline, plus a Thanksgiving/Pilgrim's Bounty special. Sara & Kleeyo has a new comic available as well, as it typically updates fortnightly. Plus, NPC is still doing WoW standalones, and Guilded Age is back to its regular output of five pages plus Ask an Adventurer.

Sunday Morning Funnies: A shocker for sure

Gnomeregan Forever
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Targe bursts into song. A grumpusaurus appears. Linola does a new Q&A. Richard solves a puzzle. Plus: Gogogo!

In comic news this week, we have a new addition to the list! The Warcraft Hero, by Mike Minotti, is actually a comic that we featured here for quite awhile, before it ended. If you're interested (and I recommend it!), you can check out the comic from the beginning. Bonus: Although Mike originally revived the comic as a one-time-only special, he has decided to start it up again. It will update Fridays, and be featured here weekly!

We also have a few new WoW-related comics from PvP on the list this week. Thanks for the tip, JereHunter!

Also on the list this week, Gnomeregan Forever features both a new update on the Shattershore storyline, and some bonus wallpaper, which just so happens to feature Faramir the cat. Plus, Trigonometry Comics has a special character guide up, which doubles as a showcase for the new character models. I love Rug's attitude in her entry!

I jokingly predicted, last week, that this week's list would contain gags about wait times and disconnects, and it certainly does. I knew that our resident entertainers and storytellers would meet frustration with humor and creativity. What I didn't anticipate were the more heartfelt responses; check out Surviving Azeroth (the text below the comic) and Kibble & Bit to see what I mean!

Sunday Morning Funnies: Great cogs!

Gratz Solace
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Giant window of death. A farce. A boop. Queues. Plus: Start packing!

In comic news, we have a lot of pre-expansion comic content happening this week, as many of the comics were done up before the expansion landed. By next week, some of the comics that tend to stick to current topics will be showing some of the new content. Or, you know, lags, queues, and disconnects-related gags?

Guilded Age has some new fan art, but didn't quite manage to feature as many pages as usual, due to technical difficulties that will hopefully be resolved in time for next week's listing.

If you haven't yet checked out the returned and altered Surviving Azeroth, you should definitely give it a go this week! It's a great entry point to the new style, and timely too.

Last week, I noted that two of our comic creators have been ill. Luckily, Jenn of Best in Slot is feeling much better, and there's a new comic up. Unfortunately, Russell is still not feeling well, although he did manage to post one Experience Boost, because he rocks. Feel better, Russell!

However, there is some excellent news: Kibble & Bit has posted seven updates. Seven. Go read them!

Sunday Morning Funnies: A sunbeam calling

Guardians of the Garrison
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Evil Overlord checklist. Being far from innocent. Casual (and cat) friendly. Plus: Asking about rabbits, for a friend.

In comic news this week, Guardians of the Garrison, a relatively new comic, will be undergoing some changes. Namely, it will split into series, the first of which, Preparations for War page 1, is up on the list this week. The style will also be changing to shorter strips, however, this may mean that sometimes we get more than one per week.

If you missed us last week, you might not have noticed that Surviving Azeroth is back! It's also going to be a little different, with fewer characters and a focus on humor. Check out Where Are They Now? to learn what became of the characters that are being dropped, and head to this week's list for new content.

In more depressing news, it is cold and flu season, and a couple of our regular content creators have been hit. Best in Slot did not update this week, because unfortunately, Jenn is sick. However, there is a new Extra available, which I've added to the list. Hopefully you're feeling better soon, Jenn! In addition, Russell of Experience Boost has also been feeling sick, in a lingering, this should be gone by now, I'd better go back to the doctor, sort of way. There is a comic up, which is awesome, but if you're wondering why we have not been seeing our usual three weekly updates, it is because Russell needs to start feeling better already!

But there are some great things happening this week, too. Trigonometry Comics kicks off a new chapter, and Contested Territory has updated with a new comic. Plus, NPC wraps up its Spooky D&D storyline and promptly starts up a new WoW-related story arc!

Road to BlizzCon Day 2: Fruitcake and Fallout

I couldn't even begin to explain why, but I'm fairly certain my comrade-in-arms Anne Stickney insisted on making our BlizzCon road trip an annual event exclusively so she could get a glimpse of a 104-year-old fruitcake. Our itinerary went through numerous iterations leading up to the start of our journey. The fruitcake was struck from the list countless times, but she managed to worm it back in there every single time. At some point, a guy accepts his fate and travels cross-country to see an old, crusty fruitcake. What can you do?

I'll let it slide, though. Day 2 of our road trip also included Goodsprings, Nevada, which I insisted on visiting from the beginning. Anyone who has played Fallout: New Vegas will recognize the location: it's the game's first Vegas locale. And, as it turns out, this supposedly-haunted town and its Pioneer Saloon may be recognizable to even those who have never touched a video game. It's been a standby location throughout modern pop culture, its Hollywood breakthrough predating Fallout by many years.

Road to Blizzcon Day 1: Diners and dynamite

Much like we did last year, my comrade Anne Stickney and I have turned the annual pilgrimage to BlizzCon into a week-long drive from the mountains of Colorado down to Anaheim, California. Unfortunately for me, my stretch of the journey begins in an airport in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I say unfortunately because a carnival of mechanical errors involving a leaky lavatory resulted in losing a full day of adventure. If you're interested in seeing those events play out, we've compiled a Storify log of my tweets during the experience. Be warned: it's full of colorful language and, at its conclusion, a NSFW geological formation, the sort of childish humor that can purge the weary soul.

The meat of the adventure, however, is the great American road trip. The roadsides of America are full of such utter wacky nonsense that if you have the opportunity to partake and pass on the chance, you're doing yourself a disservice. Follow along on this first leg of our journey as we explore Arches National Park, stumble across a busted van, and delve into the depths of a great big hole in a great big rock. The last two are far more interesting than they sound, I assure you.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Thrill of the hunt

Guilded Age
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Chomps. Hamsters and a li'l tickle. Getting into character. Hugs. Plus: What to do when you like a pair of goggles.

In comic news this week, Surviving Azeroth is back! Linked on the list this week is a post that wraps up Chapter 1, because there are going to be some changes in Chapter 2, which starts up next week. Namely, the character roster will be reduced to two, Immersa and a new character, Dracyn. The comic will also be more focused on humor, with an aim to be relatable to a wide audience. Welcome back, Surviving Azeroth!

Also on the list this week, Trigonometry Comics concludes the chapter Doors, and it's a don't-miss comic! Gratz has updated with three new comics, which go back to the main storyline after last week's Halloween specials. Plus, the NPC storyline, Spooky D&D, is definitely getting spookier, and there's some resolution on Experience Boost (although I don't know that we should count on being Orhan-free).

We are missing a few of the comics that update only sporadically, including Kibble & Bit, WoW, eh?, and The Brotherhood of Iron, as well as The Warchief's Command Board. In addition, Contested Territory missed the deadline. However, there's a new Sara & Kleeyo to check out, and Teh Gladiators updated this week.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Twenty-five winks

Gnomophobia
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Developing a conscience. AddOn Ponytail shaper attempts something forbidden. That one time on Etsy. King Wee Baby. Plus: Whoa, a flying monkey!

In comic news this week, Trigonometry Comics celebrated its third anniversary! Congratulations Trig, and thank you for all your hard work and dedication to telling stories and supporting the WoW comic community, including both readers and creators. True to Trig's style, there's a regular update, plus an anniversary special, as well as a Gnomeregan Forever update, so be sure to check them out!

Also on the list this week are two Halloween specials from Gratz that include reader ideas for character costumes. And if you missed us last week, you'll want to check out the final installment of Father's Shield (Chapter 8: Demon). Plus, the Spooky D&D storyline on NPC, which is related both to WoW and D&D, continues.

Finally, Contested Territory is back and Maiu expects to be able to update once weekly, despite her busy new(ish) work schedule. She is aiming for Tuesdays, so if you tend to check the comics throughout the week, keep that in mind.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Acts of pillagery

Guilded Age
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Dancing! Punting! And snacks! Plus: We're even trying salad!

On the list this week, From Draenor With Love finally unveils the first page of Chapter 4, which absolutely starts to deliver on the anticipation set up in the final page of Chapter 3. Dark Legacy Comics has a speaking-in-rhymes comic up, in which the characters explain how they have been languishing for lack of new content. Plus, NPC is starting up a new storyline, which looks to be both D&D and WoW-related, and maybe Halloween-themed too.

Of the comics that have been missing recently or don't update every week, you'll want to note that Sara & Kleeyo and The Warchief's Command Board both posted new content. Unfortunately, we are short a couple of updates from Experience Boost this week because Russell has been laid up with a stomach bug. Hopefully your recovery is already well underway, Russell!

We are also still missing Contested Territory, but a recent comment suggests that Maiu is doing well but working long hours at her day job right now. We can expect updates to return, for sure, although on a once-per-week schedule.

And if you missed us last week, you'll want to note that we have a new comic on the list. Be sure to check out Guardians of the Garrison, which has posted its 9th comic this week.

Sunday Morning Funnies: For something or other

Teh Gladiators
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Anthropology. Facing facts. Trickery. New beginnings. Gloomy woods. Plus: Excellent drama (10/10).

We have a new addition to announce! Guardians of the Garrison is a new WoW-related web comic that we'll be featuring here. I've linked to the main page this week, as there are eight comics already available.

In other news, From Draenor With Love is back from hiatus! You can check out the cover art for Chapter 4 this week, and next week, Chapter 4 will properly begin.

Plus, several of the comics missing last week are back this week. Teh Gladiators has three new updates for you to check out. Father's Shield has two new chapters (6 and 7) available, and there's also a new Away From Reality.

Oh, and have you been following Experience Boost? Because it's bringing some NSFW-level drama this week, which is not to be missed.

Finally, NPC has not been WoW-related lately (although it updates three times weekly regardless). But, it has some Halloween-themed content that any fan of the comic, or of cats, or of Halloween, would enjoy. Start with Favorite Cat and move forward if you're interested!

Sunday Morning Funnies: Safer now

Best in Slot
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: The butt of the jokes is not amused. A change of wardrobe. A seed of doubt is planted. Plus: Safety first!

In comic news this week, Away From Reality and Father's Shield are no longer on involuntary hiatus, because Erik's computer is fixed-ish! All in all, this was a pretty short hiatus, and didn't technically break Erik's streak of never missing a week, as last week, we had a new AFR and this week, we get Chapter 5 of Father's Shield. Away From Reality will be back on the list next Sunday.

In other news, Lackinganame (of Gratz) is asking for reader suggestions for the special Halloween 2014 picture. Head on over and leave a comment with your idea for a costume for one (or more) of the characters.

However, we also have several comics missing from this week's list. Several comics do not update every week, and of these, we are missing The Brotherhood of Iron, as well as Kibble & Bit and WoW, eh?, although we do have a new Sara & Kleeyo! Teh Gladiators missed the deadline, but if you missed last week's unveiling of the new Hearthstone-related direction, you should check it out. Also missing is The Warchief's Command Board and Contested Territory, plus From Draenor With Love is still on hiatus, preparing Chapter 4. Finally, NPC was not WoW-related, and so isn't on the list.

You should expect a fuller list next week. However, several of the comics present have posted multiple entries, and if you haven't yet taken the time to go through Gnomophobia (a recent addition) from the beginning, today is the perfect time!

Sunday Morning Funnies: Stand up straight

Experience Boost
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: A name exchange, anybody can fall down, a disrobing, new hooves. Plus: You can't escape your nemesis.

In comic news this week, Away From Reality and Father's Shield will be on a temporary, hopefully short, involuntary hiatus due to computer gremlins. Luckily, there's one new Away From Reality comic to enjoy this week, which will hopefully help ease the pain. Plus, as you may (not) recall, From Draenor With Love is also on a short hiatus, preparing the next chapter.

Fortunately, the rest of this week's news is positive. The Brotherhood of Iron has updated twice, with some mock BlizzCon posters. And there's a new storyline starting up on Gnomeregan Forever. Finally, On Teh Gladiators, the new Hearthstone-related content has already begun, which rocks; we didn't even have to miss the comic for one week!

I even have a surprise treat for you this week, courtesy of Jim from Gnomophobia (which has five new updates for you):

Steamy Romance Novels: Now with illustrations

One of my favorite parts of any new expansion has just gotten an upgrade, of sorts. It's no secret that I love the Steamy Romance Novels that have been a staple in the game since Burning Crusade. Mists of Pandaria added not one, but two new selections -- although one of them, I'm In Love With A Robot, is too smudged to actually read. Needless to say, part of me has been wondering if the savage lands of Draenor will, in fact, contain one of these literary masterpieces for us to collect. I was both surprised and delighted to see that not only do we get a new book, but all the books in the collection have received visual upgrades.

That's right -- every readable Steamy Romance Novel now has illustrations along with the tantalizingly silly bits of story. That's some pretty loving attention to detail for what are essentially a bunch of vendor-trash books that most people won't favor with more than a glance. But more importantly, a new novel has been added to the collection: A Steamy Romance Novel: Savage Passions. And even more importantly than that, a new method has been added of obtaining all of the Steamy Romance Novels ... just in case you were missing one from your collection.
