NPC Comic is an ongoing comic series about 30-somethings and their cats who play video and tabletop games together. It’s part situational comedy, part geeky goodness, and a lot of bizarre feline fantasy. Updates Monday, Wednesday, Friday.

New to NPC and wondering where to start? Start here. It’s the beginning of the latest series of chapters in which the characters play a fictional space MMORPG.

Want more after that? You have a couple options. You could start at the beginning and read all 800+ comics by hitting the “Next” button. You’ll see how much the art has changed over the years. Or you could head over to the Archive page and click on a chapter that looks interesting to you and skip around from there.
