SOPHISTICATED SOCIO-RELIGIOUS COMMENTARRY
…And I’m not being sarcastic. Luke McKinney is on fire with this one. I might have eventually weighed in on this douchery myself, but I don’t think I could have put it this well.
If you’re calling someone out as a fake fan, what’s your victory condition? Preventing someone else from liking things you like? When your plan is “prevent people from enjoying Superman,” you’re a Hostess snack cake villain, and even more irrelevant to the modern world.
The Internet is stuffed with idiots decrying fake geek girls. Fighting against fake geeks is like fighting against unicorns: You’re an asshole, and even if they were real, your stated goal is trying to kill something wonderful. More people liking things you like is a good thing. If you’re actively trying to keep people out of your hobby, you don’t have one
It’s true that “whore” is a powerfully charged word with many layers of socio-economic meaning, and can be distracting, so I’ve prepared a quick flowchart to simplify it:
I was the last picked for football, was occasionally thumped because people found it funny and can talk for a full hour about my favorite Doctor Who original novels. Only that last part still affects my life, and it’s awesome. But some people escaped into a world without bullying, and instead of thinking “Great,” they thought, “My turn.”
i can’t think of a more heroic thing to put on your cover than sunbathing at a nude beach!! stuff like that really draws readers into a story (and also their hands into their pants)
something about those butts is spooky…
maybe it’s creepy because butts don’t look like pregnancy-bloated stomachs attached to the back of people’s legs
A-are you serious?
I love how often people complain about comic/cartoon/video game women having “unrealistic” or “impossible” bodies when they are completely and utterly wrong.
Complaining about excessive sexualization is one thing, but I personally know women whose anatomy matches what these bloggers call ridiculously exaggerated, anatomically incorrect and physically impossible in comic book characters. How would you guys honestly feel if someone drew a character that looked exactly like you, and everyone called it an impossible freak?
I see people literally saying that these characters are so unrealistic that they’re ugly. Right here we have somebody calling a perfectly feasible posterior “creepy”
There are real women who naturally have big breasts, big butts and tight waists, without any kind of modification or crazy dieting disorders. It’s not their fault if popular culture is obsessed with their body type, and they already put up with harassment because of it - implying that they also look abnormal and weird, just so you can sound progressive and pro-feminism. is kind of a thoughtless thing to do.
As you may know, this is something that has always bothered me.
A universe like that of Star Trek or Star Wars, where human-like forms evolved intelligence on unrelated worlds, should be no more likely than a universe dominated by tiny snail-like races or thousands of different talking cacti.
The funny thing is, these settings all still throw in some totally non-humanoid races, but they’re always the minority, and each completely unique. How did those species feel to make first contact and find out every other planet produces nearly identical civilized ape-things?
Even though I’m known best for drawings like this, I heavily admire artists who can pull off stylized, adorable humans like Josh Lesnick, Paul Robertson, oh8 and the cartoonists of Dummcomics. Why do they have to go and make it look so easy?
Here are some doodles I sketched the other day and rather hastily colored:
I know I’ve only got like two hairstyles and three expressions here, but aside from that, my cartoon people consistently disappoint me. Almost none of these dumb jack-offs came out right - they all look dead and lifeless to me, like somebody trying too hard to force a style. Maybe that’s because it’s exactly what this is.
Does anyone have any tips on improving my TOONY FOLKS?
I can’t just draw inside-out meat monsters all the time.
You know, I was never quite certain what people found so attractive about a character as generically designed as Princess Peach, but now I imagine her dropping F-bombs constantly and she’s just adorable.
“Double %#@*#!!!” is probably exactly what the hypnotic creeper-birds have in mind.
Crappy webcam-shot of a comic i stared yesterday just for fun. Its missing text. And plot. Ohmy. Will redraw it…hate the inking.
I love this, I don’t know what could be wrong with the inking…I thought you had scanned a page from some published comic and was going to ask what this was from. Amazing professional quality in every way.
Who could forget classic moments like these?
Watch it here if you have a high tolerance for repetitive streaming ad breaks. If you’ve never had the pleasure of watching or reading the Maxx, I can assure you nothing here makes any more sense in context.
This is actually a Legend of Zelda comic and these monsters are, I believe, supposed to somehow represent Zol.
One of my older comics from a couple years ago that I still find funny.

This is juvenile, disgusting, senseless, and had me out of breath laughing the first time I ever saw it. I’m at a loss to explain why this one in particular was so uproariously funny to me, it just plain was. I especially love how what they’re seeing is only titled “3D movie.”
1930 Nightmare Theater was one of several favorite webcomics that inspired my own, and you can read through it here, but after 300+ strips it has a really unfunny ending - Ricky Garduno passed away less than a week ago at 35, possibly a suicide. He’d been fairly public about his suicidal depression for years, often making fun of it in the comic itself. I’d feel bad for finding those funny, too, but I think he’d have preferred it that way.
This might be funnier without the dialog, but I wanted to be sure people got that the joke wasn’t just “haha Christmas comes early, am I right?” but about how much I love Halloween being a three to four month marketing blitz and then resent the two months of Christmas gluttony. I can’t help it. Christmas is WAY more pretentious!
