Iíve been trying my hand at reviewing web comics. Why not take a look at the blog coffee-monster.com and let me know what you think.

Any recommendations?

Who should I review next?

I think this thread is going to turn into a "review my comic!" Barrage.

(Also - review my comics! http://www.crosarth.com and http://www.unconventional-comic.com/ )

I suppose this is the site:

http://coffee-monster.com/category/comic-reviews/

Are any of us getting reviews? I didn't check archives, maybe I'm missing something. If your answers to the following questions are acceptable to me, you may review my humor comic, Webcomic Pete (updated Tuesdays and Fridays):

List your top three funniest webcomics:
List your top three funniest movies:
Name the funniest comedian you have ever heard:
What is a joke or riddle you think is funny?:
Describe something funny you said/did/endured:

Thanks! Jerry

That post was kind of cranky, wasn't it. Sorry. Point is...I can understand reviews of on-going dramas and similar comics but humor/gag-a-day comics? Go to the actual webcomic, read five of the strips and you'll know whether you think it was funny. Actually, you'll know after one but read five; maybe the creator was having a not-funny week. You don't need somebody to say "the artwork is..." whatever. It's not a movie. You can click on the comic. And see the art, humor, etc.

Well said.

That's why what I do for the links page on my comic is just a simple short description, and an arbitrary overall scale. And it seems to me like that's what a review for any humor-based comic should really be.
I mean, if it's one of your favorite comics and you're really just trying to give it some serious lip service and talk up how great it is, sure, spend some time and talk it up.
But for an honest review on a site dedicated to reviews, really all you can do is give a paragraph or two to say if you liked it and why or why not. It's purely subjective content.

For free comics that are just a click away, all I could really see being necessary for a review is why you liked it or not. Occasionally there might be a comic where it is worth saying "Read at least X because Y" but seriously, don't waste my time giving your opinion when I can read the actual comic just as easily and gain my own.
