One way to think of the history of webcomics is as the big bang of comics. At the beginning there were far fewer webcomic creators and they were (virtually) clustered together much more tightly (hence all the wistful talk of "webcomic community") and then, if the inflationary webcomicology theory is correct, those early webcomic exploded into the universe of comics online we have today.

As I just turned 32 in March, I think it is safe to say that I am no longer "a kid".Ã‚ Nor do I have children of my own yet.Ã‚ So, I haven't really paid much attention to whether a comic on the web was kid friendly or not.Ã‚ But now that I have a two year old nephew, I find myself wondering what websites to take him to when he gets a bit older that are appropriate, but will get him excited about webcomics (get 'em in when they're young).

Scott and Amanda Kuehner have created a spinoff to the long-comatose Look What I Brought Home - it's called Crazy in Love, and it follows Beau and Stephanie, the two most insane characters in a sea of insane.

I can't tell if Scott is satirizing himself or is really pissed off. Is anyone else's sarcasm detector working? I think mine's broken.
Webcomics have wasted no time in taking advantage of the unfiltered, uncensored, and plain uncontrollable nature of the Internet. Webtoonists have also in their own small way acted out like smaller-scale rock stars, now and again trashing a virtual hotel room. In the spirit of celebrating the abuse or stretching of good taste, artistic boundaries, and/or common sense, we present our somewhat brief and arbitrary list of 17 notorious cartoonists. Some get the nod for a one-time act of notoriety while others continue working on their lifetime achievement awards even as we go to press.
Scott Keuhner advertises Look What I Brought Home as the “world’s most hated webcomic,” but he won’t fight you for the title. Ranging from the raunchy to the disgusting, the subject matter of LWIBH has offended and intrigued many. Keuhner and his wife Amanda (who originally had a writing credit on LWIBH) run a site listing the potentially most offensive comics out there here. LWIBH isn't there - but it could be.
