SMBC
Penny Arcade
Sluggy (I wouldn't but I started it at the beginning)
XKCD
(I stopped OGLAF because of the unhealthy view towards sexuality and Darth and Droids because they seemed to have lost it after doing the prequels/originals)

I tend to prefer slow-moving webnovels over joke comics, but there are some exceptions.

Subnormality - http://www.viruscomix.com/subnormality.html
Also a fan here! Goregeous artwork and nice characters. As others have said, updates are sparse, but there's a nice archive of stuff to go through.

Stand Still Stay Silent - http://www.sssscomic.com/comic.php
Some of the best art I've seen in a webnovel. The environments are highly detailed and atmospheric, and the story engaging! On haitus this month but should start the next chapter soon.

Dresden Codak - http://dresdencodak.com/
Updates only come one page every one or two months, but are rich with detail. Science fiction, fantasy, philosophy and mystery all rolled up!

He is a Good Boy - http://hiagb.com/
By the same creator of Gunshow ('this is fine' dog). A very strange story about an anthropomorphic acorn trying to find his way in life. A lot of gore and language, so NSFW, but more complex and expressive than webcomics with a similar "simple" style usually are. Switches between surreal/silly and heart-wrenching with ease, I find.

Go Get a Roomie! - http://www.gogetaroomie.com/
Okay this is a weird one. It starts off way back as your typical early 2000's pervy webcomic (at least visually), but if you stick with it, quickly evolves into a slice of life with a group of wonderful characters! The art style gets much better, too. And less gratuitous. Still NSFW for (eventually tasteful) nudity and language. One of my absolute favorites! LGBT-friendly!

Headless Bliss - http://www.headlessbliss.com/
Same creator as GGaR. Hard to describe this one. Dreamlike surreal fantasy with amazing artwork! Something like Moebius, meets Philemon, meets Jodorowsky, meets Go Get a Roomie? Take a gander at this spoiler-free sampling:

Mare Internum - http://www.marecomic.com/
Beautifully drawn sci-fi webnovel about the planet Mars and it's mysteries. Great characters! Slightly NSFW for some language.

Sufficiently Remarkable - http://sufficientlyremarkable.com/
Slice of life type webcomic with great characters and art. And the absolutely wonderful color palette! Overall, often reminds me of some of Naoki Urasawa's mangas, at least in tone/feeling. Occasional NSFW language.

Johnny Wander stories.
Lucky Penny is a good place to start.

Kind of Bryan Lee O'malley-ish slice-of-life.
