Today's comic is similar to XKCD, but with a more general appeal (XKCD caters more to the true techno-geek, I think). Abstruse Goose is also drawn with stick figures, and has biting sarcasm and witty observations of human nature. It also rocks the web-comic format -- something I particularly like in a web-comic. There are only about 100 strips, so you should be able to catch up with the strip quickly.
