Hey I'm new here, wondering if anybody could tell me how much my strip sucks or kinda sucks:
www.billtheviolentmanatee.com

The strips about my pathetic life with an abusive 7 foot manatee.

For some reason the Webcomic list doesn't show it as updated, but new strips are posted every Wednesday.

Thanks!

Well, you do only have 10 strips, but the art style is cool. Not sure if the Blog-Comic format is the best for a site, but beyond that, it seems deliciously depressing for that guy, but where is the violence? The manatee seems to have a sensitive side as strong as his cynicism.

other than that, it certainly has a good potential for the long run.

You have great linework and sense of shading. The blog-layout is bad for your site. It really needs better navigation.

Please please please get normal webcomic navigation. Your drawing is extremely tight, very expressive. So good, in fact, that it redeems the somewhat lackluster writing. I would read it (if it had better navigation) for the sheer pleasure of watching how you convey emotion with your characters.

Great potential, I'd say.

Oh, also TWCL will not show it as updated because it can;t check blog code properly to detect a comic update.

I certainly wouldn't say the writing was 'lackluster', especially not if I went on to say that I would like to read the thing regularly and I intended to make some kind of sense and actually communicate something meaningful. Words I would use to describe the writing would be 'good', 'funny', 'wry' and so on. On the other hand, yeah, I wish it had non-blog style navigation so I could track and read it more easily. Maybe it will one day. Or maybe the trackers will learn to follow blogs.

Thanks for the comments everybody!
Unfortunately, since I'm trying to do the strip this time on the cheap, I'll probably be sticking with the blog crap for a little while. I'm still learning html. There could be a decent site down the road soon.
As for the violence, as I mentioned in the first post I made on my site, I scrapped the violence gimmick after 6 or so strips when I first did the comic. I'll post some of the old ones on the site so you can see how boring that gimmick got. Besides, I'm not that angry anymore Shocked and my friends made me keep the title.
Hope you all still check it out!

Nice comic. Smile Great art, plus quality humor. The blog is a bit "eh" but if money and whatnot is the issue then go ahead and stick with it. The only suggestion I have is maybe add color, but it really isn't necessary... 'tis just an idea.

Some of the old ones were in colour. It just took too long and I suck at colouring. Maybe I'll colour a few of the new ones here and there. Thanks for the encouragement dude!

Yea that'd have been awesome. Smile

The writing is certainly different but I certainly don't think it's bad. Keep up the good work, Clutch.
