FBTB is starting a comic strip called Studs, and their first one plays off the drama of the new LEGO Friends line.
I occasionally love a good comic, especially if it involves someone I know. Do you think you know Mark Kelso beyond his brick monstrosities? Check out this comic by Jeff F. on MOCpages and you might learn more about the legend, more than you need to that is. If you care about the building techniques in the setup, visit Brickshelf for easy viewing of all the pictures.
Nevertheless, a running joke among LEGO fans is that the line is xenophobic and defames sentient non-human life forms.
Sounds like a challenge to all you LEGO fans out there to build a creation that shows the new SPIII aliens in a more positive light.
Derek Almen (Captain Redstorm) posts a frequently updated LEGO webcomic called Nerds in Space on Flickr. I was amused today to see myself seated on the big red couch discussing data, content, advertising, solutions, and exposure:
With my twice-a-year Brothers-Brick.com anniversary and Brothers Brick birthday posts, my love for both content and data (with associated metadata! *drools* ) is no secret. I also have an adorable troll to do my every bidding behind the scenes. It’s hilarious how accurate Derek’s parody of me really is…
Check out all the Nerds in Space episodes on Flickr.
Oh, and Lesson #1 in how to get blogged on The Brothers Brick: Appeal to the vanity of one of the bloggers.
Our friends at the Jørgen Vig Knudstorp blog always finds ways to parody our favorite chief executive officer of LEGO. For the April Fools bonus, we get an extra dose of Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen along with Jørgen at no extra charge! Enjoy this special comic made by John of Brickspace.org. Speaking of which, you should definitely check out his regularly updated blog.
Zack “NewRight” presents a wonderful landscape accompanied by a short story, which you can read here.
In “Well Played” #4, the FBTB admin staff try to change LEGO history (click through for full size version):

Since we’re talking about LEGO webcomics, I’d also like to point readers to our (somewhat) new LEGO Webcomics link category in the side bar. Click, read, enjoy!
