Online comics. There can only be one (quoting from "The Highlander"). And that ONE is "Sluggy Freelance (Defenders of the Nifty)". I can not recommend it highly enough. It has to be read from beginning to end. There is a character, Bun-Bun, a lop-eared rabbit, who carries a switchblade and has taken a grizzly and the "Alien" (yes, that alien) with that blade. Outrageously funny, and definitely irreverent.

They must be worth millions by now! I have not seen one in 20 years I think. What was that saying...hard times with grass but no money are better than hard times with money but no grass...or something. Fat Freddy's cat was to cool.

Years ago I used to read MAD. Also liked the Beano and Dennis the Menace.
