Can't go wrong with Kukuburi.
I'm curious to see what the current state of web comics are. Can anyone point me in the direction of some quality ones to check out?
And for clarification, I'm interested in seeing what exists in terms of comics that are more serious in tone, contain serialized story-telling, and relatively high production values. Stuff more in line with what you would normally find at your LCS as opposed to the Sunday newspaper.
And I'd be most interested in seeing comics that are at-or-near the standard of monthlies and OGNs but also actually take advantage of their unique medium and the creative opportunities it presents as opposed to simply being standard comics published on the web as opposed to print.
I have some ideas of my own in that regard, and I'm sure there are plenty of people out there already doing something like it, but I'm pretty unaware of the whole scene at the moment. I'd appreciate some guidance.

These may be not be as serious as you're going for, but they aren't just "gag a day" strips, and they're pretty high quality.

As far as I know, she maintains an art-blog where she sometimes delves into sequential art more than a running webcomic, but yeah.
As far as a ridiculous amount of incorporation of web multimedia and interactivity and whatnot, MSPaint Adventures is worth checking out. At first blush, the art is unpolished, obviously, but it gets increasingly elaborate and complex (along with the story) as things progress. I'm not sure it's a "comic" in the proper sense, but I lump it in with webcomics in my mind, and it definitely includes comics as part of its narrative at certain points. The current adventure "Homestuck" is definitely something that couldn't be published in a book.

I'll shamelessly pimp Spy6teen, which is mine-- but I think fits the criteria you'd mentioned above...
ReMind is pretty stellar: http://www.remindblog.com/2009/11/03/remind-spread-1/
Gotta dig into it more, but I started Hanna Is Not A Boy's Name: http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=4 and it looks pretty promising.
Hmmm-- I'll be back later w/ more suggestions.
There was one in particular I remembered coming across on this forum months ago and it was driving me crazy until I just finally tracked it down. It's a good example of pushing boundaries in terms of design and web comic construction (admittedly a lot further than I would want to do myself, but it's still inspiring):
greyhavencomics.com has four webcomics that just started.
Why do you still have signatures turned on?
Short Packed can be quite good. Cyanide and Happiness always brings a smile to my face
