Dykes to Watch Out For
Alison Bechdel's website for all things related to her absolutely amazing strip (part soap opera, part political satire), Dykes To Watch Out For, winner of numerous LAMBDA awards for comics/humor.

Hot Head Paisan
Very out-of-date website created by a Hothead Paisan fan about the strip. Hothead's a 'homicidal lesbian terrorist' who goes on occasional killing sprees when exposed to Neo-Nazis, anti-abortion protestors, & rapists. The site's not great, and it's at least three years out-of-date, but the comic is great.
