Col 4/5
Insanity of the Poor

Site: Looks good. Black and white just like the comic most of the time. I like the jagged lines highlighting the area the comic is in, and the illustrations for the links are fun. Your info page was NOT FOUND though, so I can't tell ya anything about that. It's all pre forum.php?f=4tty understandable though, so HUZZAH to that.

Characters: Wow, what a mix. Some characters are stronger than others. Obviously the favorites are Doomy and Sweetie, and The Chinese Men. The rest kind of just pop up out of nowhere every so often. Some comics containing Pyro and his pal made me laugh. Fire always provides wonderful material for any medium. Ady Nam doesn't really do anything for me. Dan the Goth was fun. I don't remember Puddies at all. Guess he wasn't in many. Or the strips were just forgettable. Or it's a little of both. Either way, that character seems pretty unimportant. The Poseur Dolls were kind of fun. I liked the Goth one. Hamo of Doom was pleasant, though heavily used at the beginning. Now there's almost too few comics with him, though the jokes were kind of wearing thin with that character. So maybe it's no huge loss. Deus Imber was kind of enthralling, though a little hard to follow at times. Trying to figure out where that midget sprite came from...

But yeah, Doomy and Sweetie are good characters, definitely important to the comic. I don't get dry sarcasm from Sweetie as much as could be given. There were times, but there were other times where I couldn't tell the two apart when I just read the dialogue. That's improved since then though, and I'm starting to see her personality come out more and more. Just stick with her being different from Doomy, cuz a comic with two characters that have the same personality is pretty dull.

I don't really like the Chinese Men. They're kind of boring, really. I just read their comics, and nothing pops for me. I probably don't have the right humor for it, but they just seem kind of bland and unoriginal.

Comic Design: I'm glad you went to drawing the characters by hand. It was getting a little messy when they were being done on the computer. I really liked it when the whole comic was colored. I could understand it more, and things just weren't as messy and hard to read. It works now with the grayscale being used, but I miss Doomy and Sweetie's eyes. The color added to the eyes and mouths alone made it pop more, as well as made the characters more distinct. And stick with the layout of the panels you're using now. The four strips across didn't work very well for this comic.

Story: Everything's just helter skelter!!! Man, talk about a weird, random comic. The funny thing is, there are still storylines every so often, and the author stays with them to the end. I think more could be done to look at what hell is like there, and it looks like you've gone to heaven now, which I think is a great move as it will show us even more about this world you've made.

There are times where it just completely loses me though, too. When did the Chinese Men suddenly end up being driven by Doomy? I may have missed something, but that just seemed to happen out of nowhere. This comic doesn't seem to be going for consistency or continuity too much though, so it's really unimportant how things happen. They just do. It's a mad, mad comic, and that's exactly what it should be, from the looks of things.

Consistency: Looks like they update everyday. Bonus points for that. You could use a calendar though or something. I had to make sure I didn't close the window for fear of having to click through a lot of comics I'd already read.

Overall: It's a mess of a comic. And that's fine, because that's what it's supposed to be. Not my personal cup of tea, but hey, at least it wasn't a manga-ripoff. That counts as more bonus points from me. The main difference of this comic from others? It has consistent characters that the comic's centered around, with random spats of comics that have nothing to do with a story. Want something to break your brain upon? Read Insanity for the Poor. It will make the pain go away.

Favorite comic: This one.

Final score: C+
Final score with bonus points: B+

Hope that was somehow useful. It's the best I could do on pain killers. Mmmm, tasty painkillers.

Mediocre writing and crude art. Although, still entertaining.
