Appropriately enough, I was listening to the Smash Ultimate theme when I saw this thread...

ewolf20:(context:...someone said they're both bad but the right was better)


Why would anyone say that?! They're both pretty good.
Is there someone being rude to you?

Anyway, here's mine. Haven't made one of these in a while, so this was a fun exercise.

So the issue with rebooting isn't that you don't have enough time, but that your tablet is broken?

I've cut out over half of Book 3's script and completely restarted multiple times, and it's STILL looking like it's gonna be longer than the first two books combined...

Got my submission in!

(and if my comic's view count is anything to go off of, the person who got Mizuki as a partner only just started lol)

All right, so let's specifically pit the cast of Super Galaxy Knights against a villainous version of DBS Goku (aka, just DBS Goku).

Main characters:
If we're assuming Goku's ki can block Cahe's blade beams, I don't think they've got this. Mizuki's got some scary tricks, but the energy drain means she couldn't keep them up for long enough to get rid of Goku. Pejiba and Zebugu both have pretty standard abilities, neither really getting past tier 7. Sword Warrior might be able to dodge some of Goku's stuff, but he certainly couldn't cause any damage, and Goku's reaction times would probably be fast enough to catch him eventually.

The governors:
Goku can sense people's energy, which means the abilities that mess with vision wouldn't be super useful. Gynu has a moon-destroyer level power, but that doesn't amount to much here. Zebra would last the longest by turning into clouds, but damage-wise wouldn't be able to do too much to Goku. The Tree would just be gone.

The criminals:
Probably have the best shot here. Goku doesn't really throw out insults, so Kindergartener wouldn't be able to do much (she and Mizuki could solo Vegeta though. let him call you a weakling, then knock his block off once he's powered down). Greengrocer could probably hurt Goku by growing a pumpkin inside his throat. SBD... he'd need some pretty loud sounds to create enough heat to hurt Goku. Globe Carrier could hit Goku real good with one of his own attacks, but Goku probably wouldn't get hit a second time. Vaulter could beat Goku in a fist-fight if he ate Bulma first. Retrograde could take away Goku's ability to breathe if she gets lucky. Holoclone would be able to 1v1 Goku assuming he can get his ability off on any other strong DBS character. Knife Man would be able to solo Goku hands-down - no matter how strong Goku is, if Knife Man tricks him into picking up a knife, he's a dead man walking.

Others:
Mr. Nujubolo's energy absorption is pretty strong, but I'm not sure how much Goku would throw at him once he noticed his Kamehamehas disappearing. Rejidi could just steal his organs given a lab and enough prep time. A grown-up Zuzu would actually kick Cell-saga Goku's butt, but probably not DBS Goku and certainly not as a baby. Tuue would do well if he had the bullet from the Goku Black arc that was specifically designed to kill Goku, but of course with normal bullets he'd be worthless.

And... that's pretty much it for characters who stand a chance.

I just took a closer look at that ranking of powers, and I have come to a conclusion regarding how my characters would fare here.

Power levels are dumb.

Like, take Cahe, for example. His ability creates a beam when he slashes his sword. This beam can cut through anything in the world (except his wife and child), and it travels 750 feet before disappearing. So if he were to spin around in a circle while using his ability, he could theoretically wipe out an entire city block. Without magic or some sort of energy blocking the attack, even the strongest of muscles would fall victim to his slashes.

...but the ranking list (at the lower levels) is only concerned with total destructive power (and durability), not how good you are at murder specifically. Like, his ability isn't particularly destructive to the environment, it's just that being cut in half is a really energy efficient way to kill someone. So is Cahe 8-B because he can theoretically kill everyone in an area the size of a city block, or is he only 9-C because he can't even destroy a wall without multiple cuts?

Another example is Suzigu Ludi. Her power lets her cover a surface with a shadow that absorbs all light that touches it - up to 50% of a room's surface area. If she's outside, her range extends to the entire solar system, meaning she could cause an eternal night (since half the surface area in a solar system is already dark). Would Suzigu be an 8-C character (owing to her physical strength), or would she be somewhere in tier 6 or 7 for her ability to cause complete chaos in entire civilizations at once (killing hundreds of thousands due to vehicle accidents alone)?

Like the power level ranking doesn't say how good your are at beating people, just how good you are at beating various sized rocks.

Paulie Blade:I see your point, but you can't expect creators to tone down their creations so you can safely read them AT WORK :P Come on .


Who said anything about reading anyone's creations at work?

The problem is that the front page displays the titles for ALL the comics that update, whether you asked for them or not. You can passively stop yourself from seeing a comic that has cussing (assuming it's flagged properly), but you have to actively stop yourself from seeing its title and avatar on the front page (by blocking it).

I don't think anyone introduced so far could solo a universal threat, but I suppose it depends on the nature of the threat?

Like, if the villain is a being made of pure energy, one guy could just suck him up. If the villain needs to see and/or is made of some flammable material, the Ludi twins wouldn't have much trouble with him. If the villain was Kid Buu specifically, Pejiba would coincidentally figure out a way to use her ability to absorb energy from the entire universe so she could destroy him.

It's just too matchup-dependent to say how well a generic "omega-level" villain would fare in my comic.

Eve Z.:What's the difference between a day time date and a night time date?
Should that be emphasized in any way in our pieces?


The concept is that all the dates are happening across a single day. Because a character cannot be going on two dates at the exact same time, Serp gave us each a time of day to make sure there are no conflicts.

You can have an indoor date that never mentions the time of day if you so desire, just make sure not to directly contradict the time you were given.

I'm just waiting for everyone else to forget to put a name and description of their character, and argyle gets the fan art by default.

She's perfect!

Do you mind if I put this up on my comic's fan-art page?

What is plot without character development?

...no, seriously, what is it? I really can't think of any media that has a good plot but no character development.

JammyTheBirb:Simplified to 3 people, it's:

Person A gets character B
Person B gets character C
Person C gets character A

I'm pretty sure? No repeated pairings, shuffled around, pretty much no way for anyone to be left out, no matter what number of participents there are.


Yup, exactly. And either have the whole thing be one big loop or make it multiple smaller loops.

And then you just have to make sure the randomization you made doesn't give people their own characters, doesn't give people characters from gory comics if they don't wanna read that, etc.

Jay042:The character you submit will be featured in two pieces. One you will do for your submission, and one by the creator who received it.


Is it? I was under the impression that the dates would be (potentially) with two different people, like every other crossover exchange.

There are plenty of ways to guarantee each character has exactly two partners (one drawing them and one they're drawing), no matter how many characters there are.

For example, just put all the characters in a circle, and say each person has to draw the character to the right of theirs. Bam, everyone goes on two dates.

1. Find a comic you like.
2. Draw one (or more) of the characters.
3. Post it in the thread kelty linked.
4. Also send a private message to the comic's author, since they might not read the thread.
5. Repeat.

Shekets:I do this with mine, largely because most of the traffic I get is actually from off-site and people would otherwise not see the flag content warnings on the comic profile and I REALLY do not want minors looking at my stuff.


I don't think your warning is the sort that straker was referring to - because, like, you don't insult the people who would turn away.

Centcomm:Anything that is Animu or reads the wrong direction.. it isn't cool its just a pain in the ass.


Oh yeah, reading the wrong direction is always super annoying (when it's a comic written by a westerner, that is).

Like the thing about reading comics is that it's not just "pick a direction and follow it for the entire read" - your eye should be directed by the panel structure and character placements.

The people trying to crib that "manga feel~" never seem to understand this. So what you end up getting are pages that read easiest from left to right but the dialogue is ordered right to left.

(not to mention that it's just a bit silly in general to deliberately have a comic that reads the wrong way instead of it being done out of necessity due to translations. like are you hoping your comic gets translated into Japanese by a fan, so you're trying to make it natural to that audience?)

GMan003:The website has to make it easy to read. You NEED a functional RSS feed - I only read two that don't, and I've wavered back and forth on one of them. The other gets a pass because it updates 9pm sunday-tuesday-thursday like clockwork.

I don't read stuff on Tapas. They technically have an RSS feed but it's completely useless, and I can't even bookmark "bring me to the latest page". They used to be borderline unusable with the amount of ads, and would actually break the layout with adblock. That's apparently been fixed but I've already stopped reading a few comics that moved there.


Kind of off-topic, but I'm curious - how useable is the default RSS feed that ComicFury serves up for its comics? I'm fairly certain most of my readers don't care about RSS (...or know what it is), but I don't want to alienate anyone who does.

- - - - -

Anyway, the biggest turn-off for me is the inability to tell the characters apart visually. There have been some comics where I loved the story, and the art looked great technically-speaking, but I just couldn't remember which character did which thing because they all looked too similar.

I've mostly seen this problem in black & white comics (for the simple reason that color comics can get away with not knowing rules of good character design as long as the pallets for each character aren't too similar), but I've surprisingly seen it in other forms of media too.

Like there was a sci-fi/romance/zombie apocalypse movie I watched a few years back (not gonna name names, but it rhymed with "the bost") where there were two extremely similar-looking blonde hunk types. If I remember correctly, one was one of the MC's love interests, the other was a guy who distrusted the MC and didn't think she should be allowed in the survivor camp, and they rarely appeared in the same scene together. So whenever one walked into the room it was basically a coin flip as to what kind of scene it would be.

That's one of the reason I like ONE's art - yes, it's rough, but you can easily tell who's who at a glance (Mob Psycho is a bit harder for some minor characters due to the school uniforms, but it's still leagues better than many other comics I've read).
