Comics are a widely accepted form of procrastination, especially by university students wishing that final exams were never invented. "Webcomics" are those comics posted online. They fall into a variety of categories, and the most popular tend to have a definite storyline and established characters. They can be simple graphics, "sprite"-based (pixellated), 3-D art, mostly text, mostly funny images, Flash cartoons... some artists have even quit their day jobs and spend their entire time working on their webcomics. Some comics are also published in print, such as those in the Aggie and Girl Genius (below).
