I am weak. This one has beaten me. This one is so fucking dreadful on every level I can't stand to read more then a few strips at a time, and there are THOUSANDS of the fucking things! This is becuase each strip was drawn in about five seconds, and the writing even less. I found it when doing my Nivlik review (I need to tidy that one up), and I just can't bring myself to punish myself and read through this shit. Any takers?
I'm struggling to determine which comic's art is worse, College Roomies from Hell! or this.
I think this comic's is clearly the lesser. First off, the first comic I'm seeing depicts what I take to be a plane humping a rock (http://www.bibp.com/cgi-bin/autokeenlite.cgi?date=20090422), secondly it hasn't improved one jot since the comic's inception. And this pile of shit's been running since 2001. Even CRFH has improved somewhat from its horrifically bad beginnings.
What really bugs me about this one is the sketchiness. It's so scribbly and amateur. The only thing that would be more obnoxious is if they did it on lined notebook paper.
And yes, the writing is quite terrible.
I'll pass on reviewing this one. No thanks.
Once again trying to not hate the comics you bring up instantly, but you surely know which ones to pick.
I always kneel down at night and pray that, should I ever see myself involved in a webcomic, strip "2831" didn't look so horribly sketchy that people couldn't tell if an airplane was breaking in two pieces or having sex. Clearly, this is a guy that couldn't care less. I'd be about to say this guy draws 100 of these every day, but if you say that he's on this since 2001… damn.
Unfortunately, I'm already on sight for other comics after I finish my current projects. But, maybe I'll give it a look in between stuff, since strips seem to short and easy to skim thorugh.
Supposedly I was going to tackle Least I Could Do, but since another guy did it before I could get started, I'll get on with this one.
I realize this may be very awkward to do, as I am obviously part of the subject of this. I would like to fully acknowledge my crimes against humanity as well.
For it is true that I have no talent whatsoever. I don't think I would've ever improved enough to make the comic palatable to any audience. As it is it apparently appeals to a very small, niche audience.
You might find it interesting that even most furries hate the comic. I think I recognize one of the site contributors as a name from Crush!Yiff!Destroy!
I can offer some additional information which may help your review go smoother, as I realize suffering through at least 2,800 or more of my terrible drawings is an arduous task at the very least. One reason the art is so sparse (aside from the base lack of talent) is that I really do it quickly. The five seconds per strip is actually not far off in a term of magnitude; I often take between two and five minutes to draw a strip.
I very clearly have perception issues, which will be one reason you won't see any discernible improvement in the "art."
Now, why are there so many comics? Part of that is explained by my poor writing, as I am not even 1/16th as talented as, say, one of the site contributors here. I am really lacking for an ability to convey wit or humor (which comes naturally to those I admire here).
I can draw about a month's worth of comics in about four hours, roughly the amount of time it would take a good artist, such as one of the people here, to draw a professional-quality strip. (This of course is dependent upon available talent, of course)
This means that a large number of comics built up very quickly, so much so that when I switched from sequential to calendar-based filenames, I decided to backdate the comic to 2001. So when you write your review, the actual starting date of the comic is roughly October 8, 2002.
I suppose the remainder of this post would be to give you some insight as to why I do something so futile. As stated before, I have no writing or artistic talent whatsoever, yet I persist in making a comic. It may be surprising, but the comic is really a fun hobby even though I absolutely can't make it look good. It really does allow me a lot of "unscheduled" activity in contrast to the remainder of my vocations (such as teaching). It allows me to do something different that not everyone will like - something essentially tied to weird stories in my head that I want to tell.
Which I suppose leads to a fundamental flaw of myself. Granted, I recognize that per the site's message to webcomic authors, that it's not about hate, at least out of the box. I simply seem to like things a lot of people don't like. I'm very certain that any of you on the site would absolutely hate many of the things I enjoy. I may well not be interested in the things you enjoy. I'm weird like that.
I guess I should just conclude this tl;dr post by once again thanking you all for your feedback, and I promise that I will try to somehow (as my lack of talent limits) incorporate your calls for improvement. I also would gladly accept you all rewriting stories or even redrawing them if somehow I have salvageable writing.
