As I'm the writer and illustrator, I'll give it a shot.

Del Mar 8 is a comic retelling of the idiotic escapades I have to deal with at work. Stupid customers, annoying coworkers, projectors blowing up? You name it, I've seen it. Updates Sundays.

Lemme just get it out of the way right now that I work at a movie theater. I don't know how this comic would rate from any other perspective, but I love it. The humor is funny and I can identify with it, and I am a real fan of the art. This is a really great comic, regardless of what some people say. Keep up the good work, Eleanore.
RGE 3/5
As a reader of too many webcomics, I don't really have the time to think too deeply about what I like about each and every one. I guess it's the art and the quiet humour, which apparently is based on real situations. Maybe it's because I don't feel a need to sympathsize with characters, or maybe it's because I don't feel a need to laugh out loud, but I enjoy the comic despite not being overly familiar with neither the setting nor the people.
Bob Plummer 4/5
To start off, this is a great comic. Now, someone might argue that the writing is more centered towards a target audience (i.e. Movie Theater Employees or Customer Service People), but despite that, it is a well played out comic. Even if you don't work at a movie theater, you can still understand what is going on. You can tell that the artist has a great attention to detail, and also an ability to recreate real life experiences into a humorous light.
Alan Reynold 1/5
Del Mar 8 is NOT a comic that I particularly enjoyed reading or suggest. I'll start off with a minor positive for the strip. For the most part, the art isn't bad. But I notice a trend where the poses tend to be in the same position from panel to panel, with most of them being profile shots. While not bad art, doesn't really set itself apart. But, as a webcomic reader for the most part, art is hard to criticize.

As far as writing goes, it's fairly poor. It just screams of inside jokes and esoteric humor, but such is the fault of most comics that have the author and their friends featured as the main character. The pacing and punch-lines come out really flat, and most of the humor seems inaccessible to readers who are not featured in it. The strips spend a long amount of time trying to set up a gag that never really pulls through. I don't think I laughed once the whole time I looked through the archives. The characterizations of all the characters are exactly the same and the whole 'tude thing gets really old really quickly. Yes, we get it. Working sucks, but you can only go far with work humor when it is really established that it sucks, or that customers are idiots. Really, the characters look more like assholes than cynical victims of idiot customers, which eliminates the possibility of sympathy for the protagonists. The customers aren't really shown as being outright jerks, just poor people who are asking for the service that these people are PAID to deliver.

The entire thing is more frustrating to read than enjoyable. But perhaps this requires you to have had prior experience working in a movie theater to enjoy. But for casual readers who are not familiar with such work, mentality, or the people about whom this strip is about, it's not funny or amusing in the least. It's more depressing really.

Perhaps if the characters were developed more, with different personalities and distinctive looks, and if the style of humor was more fine-tuned, I'd suggest this comic on the merits of the art. But the writing just brings the entire thing down. Sorry, but the drawings don't save its score in my eyes.
