I forget if I’ve plugged Chainmail Bikini before:

It’s written by Shamus Young (who did the equally hilarious DM of the Rings) and drawn by Shawn Gaston.  Unlike Rich Burlew, who is pretty much just telling a comedy-laced adventure story now, Young still fills the comic with D&D jokes.  Part of the fun is the little comment by Young or one of the players at the end of each panel, offering somewhat cynical advice about gaming.

 As a world creator and sometime DM, I particularly like Young’s comments that emphasize the disconnect between the DM’s and the players’ understanding of and interest in the plot, to say nothing of the world.  Young points out that if you ask the players to summarize the story, their version will be completely unrecognizable (and leave out all your carefully worked out names).
