I think I've been reading too much of DoA lately, because I just noticed one of my image filenames for the paper I'm writing is "36Strapon.png" and now I can't get it out of my head.  :psyduck:

So addition to the tech theatre webcomic I discovered (q2qcomics.com) I discovered an awesome Shakespare-comic, complete with 3-panel summaries of every Shakespare play - goodticklebrain.com

It logically goes in the Make forum - like the anime fanfic I just put there myself.

Ah, sorry about that. I sometimes forget the Make forum is there. I guess you can move it there if you want.

So yesterday I binged a comic I found, which is about antropomorphic cats and dogs in middle school (they progress to high school during the run of the comic).

And at the start the comic was crude and the storylines confusing, but I beared with it, knowing what happened with qc over the years.

And the characters grew on me and they grew themselves and now I'm at the end of the comic and the comic is wonderful and SO SAD AND OH GOD I'M CRYING.


But anyway, the comic is called Bittersweet Candy Bowl (why do all webcomics have horrible names?)

edit: Isn't it weird that most webcomics go from this:

I don't find it weird at all. I would find it more strange if an artist didn't refine and improve their style after drawing the same comic for years... Or just in general drawing for years. Practice is how we improve.

Webcomics mostly start out exempt from commercial discipline and most of them never arrive at that point.

I am surprised as well. I read it for the longest time, back when it was still pretty new up until a few years ago. But I just felt the story was being pretty weak and realized I was just reading it out of inertia at that point, so I stopped. I'll go peek and see if I like it any more now.

I picked up on webcomics relatively recently. You tend to see certain names mentioned as the "must read classics" of the genre but I'm afraid that Sluggy Freelance and El Goonish Shive have always left me stone cold. I suppose my comic reading habits come from reading print comics like Doonesbury and Dilbert, or the truly brilliant "Maggie's Farm" in the 80s - surely the best of Steve Bell's work. I'm always attracted to good art, and Liberty Meadows is seriously good art apart from anything else.

Really though, print comics have to be good enough to get printed and that sets the bar while webcomics don't. Plus I don't play computer games, never learnt, nor do I have any real connection to the whole D and D thing, so that doesn't work for me.

So DoA works for me because I recognise the humour, if not particularly the American college setting; the other Walky ones, I've never taken to. GWS, I'm losing interest in as it becomes increasingly wrapped up in politically correct agenda-pushing and the characters become less recognisable and increasingly 2-D. Girl Genius is good, so inventive, very good-looking and the Jagers are a wonderful joke.

Dresden Codak is having an even longer time than usual before the next update; there's not even a date listed yet (which always gets put back...).  Perhaps the success of his Kickstarter last year has gone to his head!
