One of the on-line strips that I follow is Weregeek. The author-artist, Alina Pete, has a very good grasp of gaming (mainly roleplaying games) culture.
She has just recently concluded a story line where a gaming session went very very badly. There have been a lot of comments from people arguing and discussing what happened in the story. She definitely struck a chord (and nerve) with gamers. While I cringed at the situation, it was very powerful writing.
The strip deals with a circle of friends both in-game and out-of-game. It has plenty of pathos and humour (including some of the best/worst puns I have ever encountered).
If you are interested in gaming, check it out.
