I can get to some of them through anonymizer.
But we figured out why .
Well if I do a tracert to keenspace. There's a section going through cogentco.com. that SLOWS DOWN BY A FACTOR OF 20.
My tracert goes from 93 ms to 1862 ms.
And it turns out that my router thinks that since they take so long i'm unworthy of viewing it.
So to look at my comics I have to either go through unplugging my router and hooking my computer straight to the modem.
or go through anonymizer.com
