Best Reason to Care About Hockey (Besides the Texas Stars)

Ngozi Ukazu

The locally based graphic novelist's Check, Please!, about the ice hockey team of fictional (and Canadian) Samwell University, is the best-funded webcomic of all time. The series – and its popular iteration in printed form – is also among the funniest and sweetest evocations of any sport ever put into sequential-art form. It'll warm your heart and make you laugh and wonder why you don't strap on a pair of skates yourself, if only to glide over for a slice of that newbie Bittle's pie.
