You know when you start reading a webcomic and then you run into something and you go "Oh no, not that. Not AGAIN. Oh god, the pain." What are some of the things that make you do this? Basically, webcomic pet peeves.

For me personally I would have to say:
-excessive cut-pasted visuals (unless there is a clever or satirical element to them)
-good jokes in a lazily drawn comic (I think there is a distinction between a comic that is "badly drawn" in an endearing or earnest way and a comic that was basically just doodled in 30 seconds on a napkin with no attempt to ever refine or improve the art)
-when the very first strip of a gag-a-day does not make me laugh, nor smile, nor inwardly chuckle, nor even remotely suggest any form of humour to any part of my shrivelled and condemned soul.

When I'm reading through a comic's archive and it doesn't improve art wise or humour wise at all. Because I like when you get to the most recent update and see how much an artist has improved- it's the beauty of webcomics as opposed to print comics.

Also Ferix, that's completely wrong! Everyone hates censor bars!

Before I list my hates I would like to say that just because I hate something doesn't mean the comic containing it is bad. There can be great comics were the positives far outweigh the bad.

Americanmanga- you're not Japanese. Find a unique style, name your characters bill or Steve instead of aku sei and yoshihara. This is the web comic aquvilant of suburban white gangster kids.

Stick figures- if you're going to be so lazy that you won't even attempt to draw your comic better have some really good writing.

Fan comics- if I wanted to read about pokemon I would read pokemon.

Inside jokes/ Memes- nothing screams great comic when the reader has no idea what the fuck you're talking about.

Ms paint- gimp, paint.net, or a dozen other free programs are out there, look into it.

Sonichu parody- you're ripping off a character from a retarded kid who ripped off the character from somewhere else.

No real update schedule- eeeeerrr.... No comment

I hate ALL webcomics, especially the carefully hand-drawn and painted ones! When I am made emperor, I'll take pleasure in having you all IMPRISONED for these ABOMINATIONS! Exceptions will be made for those who letter with MS Comic Sans or italicize EVERYTHING.

The total lack of originality in both writing and artwork. To be perfectly blunt, I would rather
jump off the Empire State Bldg. than do a Manga or Sprite comic. But that's just my opinion, and
there are tons of artists making big bucks doing them and I'm making notta, so there you go.

Right with you on that one! *cheers*
Anyway, real things I don't like about webcmics is if a person hasn't updated ANYTHING in a month. Things happen, people move, go on vacations, things break. If something comes up, your reader should be notified.

That being said, another thing I hate - running gags that just aren't funny. For example a cat that hits his head on everything and a "Bonk!" is next to it... every 5 or so comics. Yeah, I'd rather have a bad pun - at least some effort was made to it and the author doesn't seem to try and please 3 year olds everywhere.

Yeah, I hate copying and pasting, or at very least, copying and pasting if it's not purposeful. I don't mind copying and pasting that has some alterations, because I do that (very occasionally).

I hate when people who do a great gag-a-day comic decide to do three (unfunny until the end) linear strips that could well be just one strip, although this is liable to change when I inevitably do this.
Finally, I hate it when people draw crap don't put mouseover text. I like mouseover text.

I double-hate typography snobs that try to tell us how to use fonts, like MS Comic Sans and that ilk, which are designed to be used in lower case, not ALL CAPS! I defy you to the death, typography police~! (I like your font MatthewJA, what's it called?)

There's really no pet peeve of mine really. Or any one single thing that I hate. I hate webcomics all together. And once I've saved up money to finally move out, this whole webcomic thing can lick my ass.
