I agree with VAST that the website is confusing, and bad websites are a game-breaker for me. Blogspot really, really
is NOT a good host for webcomics because of how oldest posts go to the bottom and individual pages don't link to the next or previous ones. If you need a free, easy-to-configure host, I'd really recommend Comic Fury
. These are comic-oriented hosts with comic communities right at your fingertips, so not only will your website function better and easier, but you'll have easy access to an audience.
I personally find excessive copy/paste of panels to be very boring visually. Your comic Browning FTW really
suffers from this to the point where the joke is almost lost, because what Blackbeard is doing is actually more interesting
than the repeated background of Murphy just sitting there as he's supposedly (but not actually) fighting a bunch of aliens. Having some variation between the panels, maybe actually showing shots being fired or aliens falling, would help it significantly. I like the idea of the page, but the execution fell flat.
The excessive copy/paste also hurts the tamer pages, because when you just reuse the same images, they become less interesting to look at. I like the art style a lot, but I'd really like to see your artist really liven the pages up more. People aren't static, and even someone standing and having a conversation is going to move around a bit: hand gestures, head tilts, shrug shoulders, etc.)
The first page you linked, along with NaHCO3
, are two of the most interesting pages, because the art actually carries weight with the text.
On your latest page Priorities
, I think it would have been better if you'd shown in the second panel the possessee with Rasputin yelling, and the dialogue from Blackbeard and Murphy pointing off-panel.
I really like your jokes and your premise, but for me, the copy/paste makes things fall just short of being really funny. I think making your art more dynamic, at least from one panel to another, will really help make the jokes funnier and everything pop more.
