There's this comic strip that I read daily called Pibgorn. Now its not a typical newspaper funny page strip. It has some unusual charcters like Pibgorn herself who's actually a fairy and Drusilla who happens to be a succubus. It take place in our modern times and I recomend it for someone who wants something different. This comic only appears online though (which is a shame)
Oh the creator also does 9 Chickweed Lane, another good strip but a lot more "normal" and is seen in newspapers daily.
