I've been making a weekly comic for 2 months now, and I'd like to get some thoughts on why it sucks so hard and if it even does anything right. If anyone has time to read a few, just follow the link below and search around. If you don't feel like express thoughts in sentences (who would?), a simple "x/10" would be nice. Thanks to everyone, and sorry if I'm spamming!

Super FTC!

It's terrible, but I'm trying to make it better.

I've got nothing against sprite work, but this stuff here is just extremely minimal, and thus boring

Yeah, I guess I wouldn't qualify for that "REALLY funny" thing. I tried to be different with patterns in the enlarged pixels, but does it just come off as a sprite comic?

PS I miss VGCats...

The humour reminds me of Antics, i do enjoy it very much.

About the art, i dont think it will be a problem, but you have to watch out the colors and patterns because there are panels that its impossible to figure out whats going on. You need to separate better the background from the characters, better contrast and desaturate a notch. Also, the size bothers me a little, i think the pixel proportion is ok, but the panels dont need to be that big. Having to scroll, in any direction, is not good for webcomics.

Eh...It's average at best. It's not even funny. That's just my opinion, though.
