GU Comics and Sheldon are pretty funny too, usually.

And of course XKCD, but that one's been mentioned more than enough :P

Meh, XKCD has really deteriorated recently by my reckoning. Its relying more and more frequently at totally soulless references to obscure computer stuff in a lame attempt to make its readers feel clever and to raise even a half-smile from people who actually fully get the joke.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

It may be going a bit downhill, but the latest one is pretty funny, in my opinion.

Cyanide and Happiness: Consistently funny and random with a high update rate. Great recipe

Some of the "out of the main stream" ones I've gotten into are
Minus (Remember that "It's a Good Life" episode of the twilight zone?): http://www.kiwisbybeat.com/minus.html

Pictures for Sad Children (Especially notable for the alt text and offbeat tone): http://www.picturesforsadchildren.com/index.php?comicID=1

Octopus Pie (Well done NYC Indie comic with somewhat of a continuing storyline): http://www.octopuspie.com/index.php?date=2007-05-14

Dresden Codak (I've actually already made a post about this. It's one of the few amazingly smart webcomics that still updates. Although usually only twice a month.): http://www.dresdencodak.com/

Copper (about a boy and his dog. Amazing illustration and quite thoughtful writing. Sadly hasn't updated in a while): http://www.boltcity.com/copper/

A lesson is learned but the damage is irreversible (Read this. Read this right now. You mind will go places that are...different. Sadly, also on hiatius, for conciderably longer than copper however): http://www.alessonislearned.com/index.php?comic=5 (<-- Start with that one to get an idea of what the rest are generally like.

Also I've only read a little of go girly, but it's been making rounds recently and it seems pretty funny: http://girlyyy.com/go/504
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Ugh... don't get me started on cyanide and happiness.
It's just so crass, and most of its jokes strike me as being very much in the 'pirates are teh awesomer than ninjas' mold of internet idiocy.

I found another one recently, it's by the guy who made VGCats and is about Pokémon.

http://www.vgcats.com/super/

It's new so there's only two comics so far, but it's really good!

Yeah, no idea where to put this...

Um, you see, I'm looking for comics with a decent plot, and no random gag thrown in...

like this one: http://nodwick.humor.gamespy.com/ps238/index.htm

I think this is for TvTropes I guess...

http://www.missmab.com/index.php - Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures. Bad art at the beginning. PG to PG-13.

http://www.lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=82 - Lackadaisy. A furry (only cats) comic, set in the time of the inhibition. All art is beautiful from the beginning. PG-13, guns.

http://sluggy.com/ - Sluggy Freelance. My favorite comic, and the one that really got me into webcomics. Bad art at the beginning. No, it's not a furry comic. PG-13

http://www.thebookofbiff.com/2010/01/22/944-flat/ - The Book of Biff. A good comic, in gag-a-day style. From what I remember it's kid friendly.

Of course, now that this has been revived I do need to add a few other great non-mainstream comics:

Kate Beaton's "Hark! A Vagrant" (Yay for historical humor! Over recent times it does seem to have increased in popularity, so I'm sure at least some of you have heard of it.): http://www.harkavagrant.com/

Ryan Armand's "Great" (By the same guy that did Minus. One of the few comics I've been reading since the start, and now that it's been linked to by Ryan North of Dinosaur comics, I imagine it'll get a bit more notice): http://www.kiwisbybeat.com/great1.html

Justin Pierce's "Wonderella" (Like Wonder Woman but clearly not. Great parody. Hilarious comic): http://nonadventures.com/2006/09/09/the-torment-of-a-thousand-yesterdays/

Peter and Erin Donahue's "Pear-Pear": (Personally, I never thought I could find a wordless Pear and Mug such compelling characters. It's strange, but a huge amount of fun if you can get into it. Surprised this isn't more widely read): http://www.pear-pear.com/archive1.htm

Seriously, read all of those. They are fantastic.
