It might be time to take a break from social media, awkwardness.

Oh, has another of Jeph's meaningless comics turned into an inkblot test?

Maybe!

You know, even if Jeph is poking fun at Billie Eilish here, it's a pretty gentle poke, and I would find it pretty hard to get worked up about it myself.

BTW as an ageing curmudgeon that dislikes a lot of new popular music, I think that hers is enjoyable enough.

Despite all the comments on the previous page, I'm just glad Jeph hasn't taken QC in the same direction as a number of other webcartoonists. Whether it be turning it into a wall of text soapbox, or just an excuse to draw fetish art (I'm doubly glad it's not creepy fetish art).

Maybe!

I am grateful for the departure of Ass.Golf and the return of QC. I was beginning to think the dick strips would never end.

Same, but even webcomic artists need a break at some times.

I found some of the comics funny, actually.

And I wouldn't mind them even if I didn't. It's free entertainment. As hedgie said, Jeph deserves a break once in a while - if anything, *more* often than once a year.

Even free comics aren't immune from criticism, y'know.

But I mean, you're both right in pointing out that it's Jeph's comic, and that he's perfectly entitled to do whatever he wants. Which obviously continues to please a lot of people. So, power to him.

No need to be quite so bothered by those who openly criticise it, or simply express the opinion that there were some comics they didn't like. They're entitled to do that as well. It doesn't make them as egocentric as that little couplet makes them out to be.

Oh, I'm absolutely all for criticising stuff one doesn't like. I just said I like some of the jokes, and I don't mind that the comics, well, involve considerably less effort. I see them as trash, but purposeful trash - in a "I'm taking a break from making comics, but here's at least SOMETHING that I've made" way.

Granted, arguably no ocmics would be better than bad comics, depending on one's perspective. But personally, I give a pass to a low-effort update of anything when the creator of said anything is technically not supposed to work on it.

This isn't to say discussing the badness is somehow wrong. I just thought I'd share my general reaction, which is indifference mixed with mild amusement with the jokes, which I find so stupid they loop back around to being funny, much like I'd find it funny if someone farted during a solemn speech or something.
