Come on, man. Reading posts is hard.

Maybe with enough meta commentary on the futility of piling onto a thread the OP's bailed on, we can get this here derelict locked out.

Everyone else if you want attention for your comic, go make some fan art--because you get what you give.


Well, I haven't completely bailed on it! I really do want to get back to reading comics, but I'm up to my eyes in other shenanigans at the moment. I don't really mind if people keep submitting their comics- as long as they realize that I'll PROBABLY never get to them. If I do a thread like this again, I'll probably limit it to 5-10 comics and make it a first-come first-serve kind of thing.

First of all, thank you so much for the detailed critique. I was really excited based on how well you reviewed the other comics, and I wasn't disappointed! A lot of what you said is stuff that I'm aware of, but you gave some great advice, too. I'll respond to a few of the things you said, not because I want to be defensive, but because you're cool and I genuinely want to explain them!

So this might get a little more into psychology than a total art critique, but I think you can draw a lot more detail that you choose to. Little hints like your large perspective shots, moments of detail, and more dynamic panels suggest you have it in your mind, you just hesitate to put it on paper. And your self critiquing humor about your art suggests to me that you're maybe shy about it? Like you want to maybe get away from simplified cartoons and do more detailed drawings, but you're afraid to not succeed. Or, you are just unwilling to put in the time it would take. Ok, getting away from the psychology couch...


You're definitely right that I'm shy about it! I can't help it when there are so many other comics out there that are LEAGUES ahead of mine in every respect. But you're right, I need to be more self-confident with it, and try to keep things consistent. The main reason things are left fairly minimalistic is because I'm trying to focus on putting out fast, reactionary updates, leaning more on quantity than quality. This is because: A. I don't want to keep the lovely friends in the discord waiting (although that ship has definitely sailed, with how slow updates have been lately) B. I don't want to lose motivation to keep working on it and C. I think it leaves me with more room to improve the quality and style as it goes along.

First, I think you probably need to use a better art program. You mention having to redraw something you had previously erased, but if you use SAI, Photoshop, or I think GIMP, you can use layers. Layers will make your life SO much easier, especially if you want to keep your simple style


I actually DO use Photoshop! There's no way I'd be able to do this without the God-granted majesty of Layers, believe me. I think the part that you're referring to is near the beginning- I actually was using layers then too, but I was also so new to Photoshop that I had NO idea what I was doing and completely butchered a lot of the early pages because of it. At some point, I really want to go back and redo parts of Chapter 1, fixing a lot of the art/writing/formatting problems to make things more consistent and flow better, relative to how the comic has developed now.

Also, you could make the "options" look different from the narrative dialogue (even a simple color difference). I got lost a few times then I realized there was a line break and it wasn't narrative, but the "options". Having a consistent format helps a lot in reading.


This is definitely something I've thought about doing, and if I eventually do go back, I'll probably implement something like this. When I was originally thinking about the story, I was envisioning relatively little dialogue, with the characters' personalities mainly just showing through their actions/expressions. When Antonicus and Saoirse meet though (about when the quotation marks start) I think I just sort of fell into making them talk in a more traditional "novel"-esque style. Not really sure if this is a good thing, in retrospect, but when I go back, I'll have to re-think its presentation.

You jump a lot between perspectives (first, second, third person) but I think you need to really just pick one. You consistently break the fourth wall by being self depreciating, or smart ass with the reader, which kinda pulls me away from being indulged in the story. Also, you have a lot of RANDOM ACTS OF BOLDNESS that detract from the writing, because my point is you are good at writing from a technical standpoint.


Thanks for saying so! ^///^ I agree that the point-of-view changes get a little ridiculous. I really like the second-person style of text-adventure games and other interactive comics, which CB is clearly inspired by. But at the same time, certain jokes/sentences get confusing when Saoirse isn't 'addressing' the Gods in some way. This is another thing I'd like to re-think and clean up a little when I go back, so thanks for the advice! The RANDOM BOLDNESS is similarly influenced by other things that EMPHASIZE CERTAIN ITEMS OR KEY POINTS. Personally, I like them, the reason being that when I read the sentences out loud or in my head, having certain things emphasized for seemingly no reason (or sometimes, no reason at all besides for humorous effect), it sounds SO funny to me. I can't really explain why. I enjoy the rhythm that it creates, and the throwback to old games/comics. That being said, I probably overdo it!

Your writing ability is definitely your strength, but much like your art you seem too shy to commit. Your prose is great! So don't be afraid for us to take it seriously. You can still have humor, like the ongoing Denise joke, but don't kick your reader out of the immersion by bashing your own work. I would recommend to either commit to humor, or commit to a more serious tone. It's kinda in the middle right now.


Once again, thank you! I think the tonal dissonance is definitely an issue, and I think part of this comic is sort of a personal exploration of where that separation lies. In theory, it'd be great if I could make stupid jokes AND have a semi-serious story/themes, and I definitely think it's possible, but in reality it's really hard to pull off. Not really sure what else to say about this, other than that I'm going to keep trying to improve, going forward. I have ideas for certain sections that are going to be more serious with a little humor thrown in, and then other sections that are more aimed at letting the players goof off. I only know the broad strokes, though- we'll have to see what happens.

Thank you so much again for the advice- reading this again, it kinda seems like I'm brushing it off just by saying "I'll fix it later", but believe me when I've taken it to heart. Not many people put this much effort into giving quality feedback, and I really appreciate it! Even though I get too self-depricating and make too many dumb jokes, I really do care about this story (as you can tell by this ridiculous text wall) and I'd like to see it through to the end, even if it takes a million years. It probably will, at this rate.

I'm actually working on another comic, too- I'm trying to take what I've learned so far from Chainbreaker and make this one with more detailed art and a more consistent tone. I'll be referring back to your post a lot, too! One last time, thanks so much.

<3

You provide really detailed and professional critiques! I'm both excited and nervous for when you read CB, lol. You might just shrivel up and die. At least you'll have something to tear to pieces xP

For real though, thank you so much for the hard work you put into these reviews. You went for quality where I went for quantity, in my thread. xD

I'm continuing to still be alive, friends. Sorry it's been so long without a new post. I've been slowly making my way through comics in the meantime. Not sure if I'll ever be able to get through this list- I see why so many of these die out, tbh. I'm not giving up just yet though, so here are some fairly short reactions to the comics I've managed to get through.

Technically she said spider, not spidar. :D

Anyways, go for Mallory Bash! Or Silver.

Nova, King of Peace is cool too!

Oh, this (A System of Solares) is super good! In my opinion though. Not sure about yours. :)

Tale Of A Disappointing Landshark is great!

Don't be too sure about mine, but go ahead if you want. (Links are in banner.)


I managed to get through the others included in this comment! First up, Silver. I've seen surprisingly few werewolf comics on the site, so this was a pretty cool read. Though not particularly stylish or unique, the art is very nice to look at, and the story is fairly tame but still interesting and entertaining. It actually seems like it's getting close to the climax, so I'm excited for that. Not too much else to say- hope this continues and has an awesome conclusion!

Next, The Tale of a Disappointing Landshark. This one was quite strange. I really wasn't sure where the premise was headed on this one. At first I thought the main focus was going to be on just the mother and daughter talking to the titular landshark, but it quickly expands into much more than that. The art is also unique and very distinctive, and also very nice to look at! I ended up really enjoying quite a bit, though, and if you're into strange aquatic fairy tales, I think you would too!

I also took a look at all of your comics, SunnySideUpSmile. They're just getting started, so I don't really have much to say about them just yet. I definitely hope you keep up the good work and keep improving, though- I really like stories about college-goers!

I also read through Mundane Maria! Another awesome fantasy story that's just getting started. Dang it! I really like this one so far because it takes the typical Harry Potter premise and twists it into something a bit more cynical and sinister. I really like the letters written at the beginnings of chapters- it's a cool way to build the world and also show off the characters' personalities. I will say that I'm not wholly convinced by the decision to have a whole mini-story just focusing on the brother- it didn't seem to have much of a point (that couldn't have just been explained in a couple of lines) and as you said yourself, it's a while before we even meet the protagonist! That aside, I'm very excited to see where this one goes, too.

I read Cosmos, too! This is another odd one. Honestly I'm not really sure how I feel about it- I certainly didn't DISLIKE it, but I'm not sure the humor really clicked with me, either. I think this is another one of those "it's not you, it's me" situations. The story and style of it is cute, it just never really grabbed me, I guess. One other issue is that even though your line art is really good, a lot of the panels are so cluttered with detail and background lines that I have to really squint to be able to tell what's going on. All of that being said, I would still recommend this to people who like cute, cartoonish comics and enjoy the sense of humor! (Really trying not to be harsh, here! I didn't dislike it, but with so many comics to read through, some of them are bound to not really click with me.)

Last but not least, Fuzzy Princess! Another adorable Calvin and Hobbes-esque one, this time with a very focused plot. I really loved the characters and how quickly they became entertaining and fun. It manages to take pretty weird, unique ideas and make them very quickly identifiable and funny. I really want more of this!


That's all for now, ladies and gentlemen and spiders and aliens I guess. Hopefully it won't be 40 years until the next one. Hope you're all doing well! <3

OK, well, I appreciate you taking your time. I'm aware that the type of story we're producing isn't for everybody, and I'm sorry you find them disturbing. If it's any consolation, they're really not meant to be!


Oh no, it's totally fine, not your fault at all. "Disturbing" isn't really the right word, either. Once again, I'm sorry for being unable to give you a fair critique. It's down to my own limitations more than anything else.

ANYWAY, yes, hello friends, I've read a few more comics. Sorry again for the slow progress- hopefully my schedule cooperates more soon. Was going to read more today, but I have a splitting headache for some reason. Ah well- here we go!

If you're looking for something where the art inspires you, read Super Galaxy Knights Deluxe R.
Trust me, once you read it, you'll believe you can do anything.


Aw, don't be so hard on yourself! You've improved quite a lot in a relatively short span of time. Super Galaxy Knights Deluxe R. is a very tongue-in-cheek and self-aware fantasy comic that endeared itself to me pretty quickly. What it lacks in originality or Ludicrous Art Skill(TM) it makes up for with funny jokes and quirky characters. I enjoyed this quite a lot, and I can't wait to see what you do with it next.

How about LadyGamerComics?


Hey again, Xigirl. I actually read some of this before, when you wanted me to help you work on something. I read a bit more of it this time, and... I admit, I'm still not really sure what you're trying to do with it? Some parts are kind of funny, but most of it is just odd, in my view. There's nothing wrong with just random experimentation, though. Keep doing what you do best!

Technically she said spider, not spidar. :D

Anyways, go for Mallory Bash! Or Silver.

Nova, King of Peace is cool too!

Oh, this (A System of Solares) is super good! In my opinion though. Not sure about yours. :)

Tale Of A Disappointing Landshark is great!

Don't be too sure about mine, but go ahead if you want. (Links are in banner.)


Way to really go crazy with the links! :D I've read them all except for Silver, Tale of a Disappointing Landshark, and your comics- I'm a bit too tired to get through them tonight. Sorry, I'll definitely get to them soon. The three comics I DID read are all relatively short and extremely enjoyable- I'll do each of them in quick succession, since I don't really have many negative things to say!

Mallory Bash: A wonderful story with very fun, Calvin and Hobbes-esque characters and style. Plenty of really funny moments, with some more serious and emotional scenes thrown in here and there. Sometimes your line art gets a liiiittle sloppy, but you very quickly improve beyond what was already a very nice style. An absolute must-read.

Nova, King of Peace: My new favorite anime. In all seriousness, the art style is gorgeous and the story is intriguing, though it's just getting started. I can see a lot of potential here. Keep up the awesome work, I already want more! :3

A System of Solares: The idea of planets or other symbols as characters isn't new- but the mythos and setting are VERY well-done, and pulled me into the story very quickly. There's a really great dynamic to the characters too, definitely a country mile beyond most fantasy school stories. Pluto is literally me, and I'll fight anyone who claims otherwise. I'm very much excited to see where the story goes from here, and how the characters develop. (Gorgeous art, too, before I forget!) Keep up the great work!

@demonicplant I'm so sorry you had to follow up my deranged scrawlings. RIP my artistic dignity.

You guys are all awesome. The character didn't even change all that much, and every drawing is amazing. This was a lot of fun :3

I have returned, friends. Sorry it's taking me so long to get through these- lots of stuff on my plate right now, as I mentioned earlier. Hopefully this very long post makes up for it! I've officially finished the first page of comics, and I'll try to get to the second page ASAP. Remember to read each others' comics, too! Don't just rely on me ;3


Read the Birthmarks of the Dark World. If you want to see some weird teenagers.

and for action The RED GUARDIANS Deities, Demons ! backing back today ! Its only 3 pages..

Links in Sig!


Birthmarks of the Dark World is a relatively short and simple story about, as you said, weird teenagers who seem to live in a strange academy of some kind. I don't really have too much to talk about here, other than the fact that I like the idea and your character designs are very cute and stylish. The art is very minimalist, but I still understood the story alright, so it's not a big deal. I hope you keep posting and keep improving!


I'm not a spider in disguise. As you can see from my avatar, I'm actually a bee.


Indeed you're right! I took a look at both of your comics, Nightshade and Storm over Whoomera. Unfortunately, I'm really sorry to say that I didn't finish them... so I'm not going to be able to give a proper critique. I apologize, but I don't think this type of comic is really my thing.. I can't properly appreciate something that's just unsettling and disturbing to me. I hesitate to use the word 'triggered', but even if I were to force myself to read through them, I wouldn't really be able to say much about it. That's not to say its bad, in any way, or that there's anything wrong with them or those who enjoy them- I just can't appreciate them, personally speaking. I hope you keep up the good work, even if I can't join in! Sorry again, I'm sure there are better people than me who could provide you real critiques of your work.


One fun thing about my comics is that you can choose one-! They're all complete stories and they're all a little bit different.

The Art of Monsters is a 40 page long comic set in a kind of fantasy China.
Breaking the Lore is a 50 pages long loose adaptation of an English folklore story.
The Trapper Lad is a very teeny (20 pages or something?) historical comic set in a Victorian coal mine.

I'd be really interested to see which one you'd pick!


Well, it turns out that I picked all of them! I really enjoyed all three, too- the links are right there, for people who are interested in very passionate, colorful, and emotional stories that don't take very long to read at all. I loved the grieving in Trapper Lad, the tragedy of The Art of Monsters, and the unique folktale presented by Breaking the Lore. Your art is lovely to look at, too. I think Breaking the Lore is my favorite of the three- there's so much emotion, creativity, and even some good laughs, too. I can't wait to see what you do next (I think I saw that you're working on one?) Keep up the fantastic work, and thank you very much!



Trixie Slaughteraxe for President
http://trixie.webcomic.ws/comics/first/


I'd actually read part of this one already, and enjoyed it quite a bit. I'm glad that I've finally read through the whole thing! Your sense of humor is extremely entertaining, and even though the drawings are fairly simple, they're very easy on the eye and I never got tired of them. The story kind of reminds me of Order of the Stick- with a similar tone in terms of adventuring and banter, where each character helps each other but is mostly focused on their own goals. The idea of centering it around a presidential election is really unique and very funny (and scarily accurate at certain points.) Pretty much nothing but good things to say here, and I can't wait for more! Keep it up!

I'd love to see what you think of the little bit of Trick/Treat I've posted so far.... :)

(Link below)


Well, I would have loved to see it, but it seems like you've died! I hate it when that happens. Please come back, we all miss you here! WE'RE NOTHING WITHOUT YOU!


I could be a spider under the guise of a piggy. ;) Who know if my ears are anatomically incorrect are because of a style choice or poorly made costume? All kidding (?) aside, you can check out Piggy Perceptions (linked in sig) or the two completed chapters Love Amongst the Flowers before I reboot it in a different art style. :) *Linked in sig "Comics Without Piggy"


Whether piggy or spider, your art style is very cute and I thoroughly enjoyed your adorable comic. It has a very lighthearted tone and a few strips are quite funny, as well. Not too much to say about this one either... except to wish you luck on all your artful endeavors! (I'll wait until you reboot Love Amongst the Flowers to take a look- unless you'd really like me to read it now, for some reason. Let me know!)

With that, I'm going to sleep. Thanks again to everyone for being patient, and I apologize to those who waited a while and then didn't end up getting much feedback ;n;

Also, an Important Note: Feel free to keep posting with your thoughts, reactions, and comic links- but I'm not accepting any more critiques just yet. Eventually I'll try to do another thread, but for now, I have too much to do!

Lee M:Hmm... I can't help wondering if this thread isn't going to collapse under the weight of requests. I can see why some critiquers set limits on the number of titles they review, but then the problem is that latecoming creators feel left out. It's a bit of a Catch-22 all round.


Yeah, it's a problem, especially with how busy I've gotten with school/trying to manage my own comic/other projects lately! I do honestly intend to read every comic that's been posted up here so far... but you're right, maybe this would be a good cut-off point. Thanks to everyone who has submitted a comic, I've seriously enjoyed reading them so far! I promise I'll get to you eventually. But yeah, I'll go ahead and close the thread here. Sorry guys- there are plenty of other critique threads, and I'm hoping I can do another one eventually. To everyone who's already submitted one, I'll get to you ASAP- hopefully within a month or so, at the most.

Thanks again everyone. Keep up the great work, and stay awesome <3

Well, it's not COMPLETELY over yet. And it's spawned what kind of amounts to an entire new genre of webcomics. (Though a lot of them are low-quality knock-offs, like mine ;3)

I'm not sure if there's a new "standard-bearer". Webcomics are a big, amorphous thing that are hard to list and quantify. It seems kind of like asking if there's a "meta" or "standard-bearer" for Steam, or something like that. Then again, I could be wrong- maybe something else will come along and shatter a bunch of barriers.

Yay, you subscribed! Thanks so much, I'll keep doing my best! ^-^


No problem at all! It was my pleasure :)


But good to know that I am at least have story (and art-) crafting part right. It little worries me if I am doing storystelling right or not...


There's no one right way to do it. The important thing is to be confident in yourself and keep trying your best to improve. I've read FAR worse, believe me.

Gosh, I have so many questions I'd like to ask - I guess I already know who your favourite character is and who I ought to make some merch of next! But suffice to say, I'm really glad you like the characters and their interactions, and you're fiding the story gripping. I wasn't sure I was doing a good job, so knowing you like it this much has filled me with joy! I'm more inspired than ever to keep developing my characters and pushing all the way to the plot's finale! Thanks again~


I'm extremely happy that you feel inspired! I'm even happier that you're going to keep going on the comic. If you want to talk more or ask questions, feel free to pm me ;///;

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ANYWAY. I'm still slowly but surely working my way through the list. I've read a couple more today, and hopefully I'll have a chance to read more soon:

http://legacy-ignition.webcomic.ws/comics/first

Here is mine for the reading, It's a fantasy story, but unfortunately, It's only in the prologue


Legacy is... just... geez. I'm not even qualified to critique something like this. The art is just mind-blowingly good, and on top of that you seem to have a real idea for where the story's going and who these characters are, even though you're just starting. Not that I can blame you for the slow start, with how absolutely ridiculous the amount of detail is. Keep up the fantastic work!

Here's my comic. It's a long over arching story with many twists and turns. Its only beginning but maybe it'll give you some ideas? Everything is originally from pencil sketches.

TYPER PAGE-1


This one is interesting, to say the least. The story and lore reminds me somewhat of Berserk, and the wild craziness of the plot thus far has an almost Paprika-flavored dream-like style to it. I really love this, save for one issue. The sketches are a little crude, which is normally fine, but because there's so much action and rapid-fire scene changes even just in the prologue, it makes it go from "wild, surreal romp" to "lost whirlpool of confusion." I think I MOSTLY understand what's happening, but if you asked me where each character is in relation to one another or who's allied with who on what ship, I'd be at a complete loss. I know this is a tough problem to fix, since my own comic suffers from the same thing, a lot of the time. But I REALLY like the style and creativity you're putting into this, which is why I took the time to spell out my issues with it. I hope you keep going with this and keep improving as you go along!

Well, it's stupidly late at night, but I finished a few more comics! I'm really happy with how this is going. I hope you guys are all doing well!

Hou! I still remember thing with that creepy gasmask guy, so guess I'll offer this minefield, I mean comic to go through. Link within (out of date) banner. Fair warning, it's over 300 pages...
_______________________
My comic, The Metallic.


I remember you as well! That gas mask guy is still creepy. I'm glad that I've finally read your whole comic, now! As for critique, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that your dark, shaded art style is really atmospheric, and really drew me into the dark wasteland this takes place in. The bad news is that, unfortunately, the wonky translations (I'm assuming English isn't your first language- if I'm mistaken, don't worry, I'm just dumb.) and the rapid scene-changes kind of make the plot hard to follow, and the characters hard to familiarize myself with. (Lux is great though.) I still enjoyed it overall, and you're very good at drawing and crafting the story- it was just hard for me to get really invested. Keep up the great work, though! I'm eager to see more.

If you like magic and adventure, you'll like "Zack Dragonblade and the Excalites"! :D


Why, I do like those things! Standing in contrast to the dark wastes, we have a very cute and fun fantasy adventure, Zack Dragonblade and the Excalites. Another one that's very entertaining, and seems like it's only just getting started. I really liked how genuine the characters and the emotional trials they go through are. Evil witches are also never a bad thing. There's nothing INSANELY unique about the story just yet, but that's fine. More importantly, you've set up a really solid foundation for the story, and I'm looking forward to seeing how you flesh out the world and the characters. Awesome job, keep it up!

I've got mystery and action in a near-future dystopian setting if you're up for that . . . Ashes


Jeez, how do you not have more subscribers? This is awesome! I spent a couple hours binging the whole thing, and I feel like I need to read it again just to pay more attention to the mysteries (maybe when I'm not grossly sleep deprived). It starts off pretty slow, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the mysteries you set up slowly unfolded over time, and weren't just forgotten about. I'm insanely curious to see how you're going to bring it all full-circle! I also really like the characters, especially how they interact when there isn't anything major going on. I'm having major fangirl moments just thinking about all of their different relationships, and fervently wishing that the main characters all get their acts together and work towards a better solution for the world (which would probably involve betraying the government, but it's fine). Also Spider is my wife and we're married now okay

If I had one nitpicky-type thing, I'd say the story might be starting to stagnate just a bit from status-quo syndrome, just because it seems like all the different factions and groups are circling around each other at this point. There's nothing wrong with a slow-burn- you've been doing great with the story so far- I just want things to come to a head, for better or worse! BATTLE. DEATH. DRAMA. You've definitely won my confidence, though. I can't wait to see what happens next! also can I have Spider merch where's the Spider merch

Well hello ther :D lol
So my comics are pretty short yet cause i've been having hard time with updates,but here what i have so far.

Touch of the Wicked
It's a fantasy victorian era comic

Emma kind of like gag-a-day/Slices of life thing


Hello to you as well, friend! Both of your comics are very short, but very sweet. There isn't too much to say about them, except that I like them, and your art is beautiful and impressive! I hope you sort out your updating woes and continue both of these!

If you're looking for some fast paced action then give mine a spin in your Russian roulette.


It's less of a Russian roulette and more of a slow Grecian death march into oblivion. At least I get to read some good stuff along the way, though! Bounty Hunter is indeed very fast-paced, and also very well-drawn with a nice style to it. This is definitely a comic I would've loved when I was younger- cheesy one-liners, grizzled badasses, and plenty of bullets and explosions. Not that it's any less enjoyable now, of course! The story is fun and I'm really interested to see what else you do with this cast of characters you're assembling. Awesome job!

keltyzoid!:please read Those Unknowable if you haven't because you're missing out

also Catihorn and Castle Hawkingspire because they're also good and coll and two separate sexy individuals make them

or also read Nightlight since it's coming back in a few days and i wanna build hype maybe


I really liked all of these! I'll go through them one at a time:

I've seen Those Unknowable mentioned in a few places before, and it had always looked interesting. I'm glad I finally got to read through it! There really isn't much to say other than WOW, what an interesting and unique take on Lovecraftian lore. Extremely well-done in terms of both art and story. It can get a little slow sometimes, and I think the human characters are (surprisingly) actually a little boring compared to the monsters. Those are tiny, tiny nitpicks though. Tons of work has been put into this, and I very much enjoyed it.

Catihorn is great too! It's funny how really colorful and 'cartoonish' comics tend to have the roughest themes and storylines. It may even be trying to get a little too real, too quickly? Don't get me wrong, the writing isn't bad, it just seems like a lot to drop on someone at the start of what seems to be a long story. (Is it even still going? Seems like the last update was a while ago.) Oh well, it's still a very good read! I hope to see it continue!

I'd actually already read most of Castle Hawkingspire, and I assume a lot of people have at this point, too. I've never wanted something to be longer so badly. It's just getting started, and it already has a really great, heartfelt core to it. Much love. Would comic again.

And finally, Nightlight. Wow, way to destroy my emotions INSTANTLY. Since my own comic is such a slow-burn, I really admire when people can pull off emotional scenes right off the bat. I definitely want this continue, and I wish you the best of luck! I'm most looking forward to how you further characterize James and how he interacts with the other characters in this unique modern world/fantasy blend you have. Thanks so much, and keep up the great work! :3

Thanks a lot for both the read and the critique (And don't think I didn't notice my subscriber count go up by one *Blows kiss*)


No problem at all, it was my pleasure! blushes at the blown kiss ;o;

Sure. Link in sig.


Finished Planet Chaser! I love space opera stories. I was surprised by how quickly the story took off and how intriguing the characters became. I was confused some of the time, though. Some of your scenes and chapters kind of blur together, since there aren't many transition scenes or establishing shots. It makes it hard to follow where exactly the characters are and what they're trying to do. The good news is that the art and writing both improve quite a lot as the comic goes on! The newest chapters you've written are the best of the bunch, in my opinion. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do next. Keep up the great work!


Hope you like Gag-A-Days!


Just finished reading I'm Not Your Friend, as well! I like the minimalist style, and the self-aware humor is pretty funny. That's... abooooouuuuuut all I can think of to say! Thanks for the fun read, and keep it up! :3

Firebrand128:Alright then, my comic is in the banner.


Finished Once Stung! This was a really fun and enjoyable read. The art is unique and stylized, and the story is familiar without being too cliche. By far the strongest aspect is the sense of humor- it made the story fun and the characters endearing. If I had one small critique, some of the facial expressions are maybe a bit... *too* stylized? Some of them dip into the uncanny valley, I think. Still, that's only a small thing. Can't wait for more of this!

kenbastard:My comic is an anthology, so there are some short tales and longer ones and are not, for the most part, not connected. Just click on my banner and enjoy!


Also finished The Nonesuch Tales! I definitely haven't read too many things like this before, though the art and narrative style reminds me of stuff I've seen in Heavy Metal magazine. I enjoyed the majority of it- I love shorter, surreal stories, even if some of them are maybe a little tooooo out there, even for me! Still, that's more down to my taste than anything else. It's obvious a ton of work was put into this, and I'd love to see more!

Holy geez is that a lot of requests. Don't worry, I knew what I was getting into, and I promise that I'll get to everyone eventually. EVENTUALLY.

Oh, I guess that leave me out...


I'm extremely sorry for my off-color and exclusionary statement about humans who may or may not actually be Just a Bunch of Spiders. I was being discriminatory and downright rude. Please, any wonderful spider children out there who want to share their comic with everyone, do so without hesitation!
