"I have an opinion!"
You're a fag.
"I also have an opinion."
You are also a fag.
"Wouldn't you know it? I have an opinion"
Hey! Let's mix things up a bit. Pick:
a)You're a fag.
b)You're a dipshit.
c)You're a fucktard.
Mr. Jornak? You sir, are the next Goddam Hemmingway. That's a good thing, but don't take it in a good way, I'm using something I like to call "sarcasm". To all the less privilidged people Jornak is so elequently referring to, dear sweet merciful lord, do not hate a comic for sucking. Just don't do it. Jornak? You still there? You'll have to excuse me for sinking to you're level of intellgence, it'll just be a quick plunge I swear, but please allow me to elaborate as to why so many people have good taste in hating a comic that does in fact suck.
The art is horrid. Elaborate on how the first comic is better all you want, look at current work and you'll notice PA has CAD beaten in spades. CAD artwork is bland, flat, symmetrical, and boring. Lucas and Lila are especially ugly. Is she a woman or a man with breast implants? I'm surprised that his copy and paste keys on his keyboard function properly. I'd go as far as to call his copy and paste comic a sprite comic, but the harder working sprite artists might take offense.
The writing is atrocious. No typos or anything of that sort, but are there actually characters in the comic? There's Ethan and then theres:
circle one. They're all the same anyways:
c)lila (for boob/women joke)
d)zeke (for robot/"pr0n" joke)
They are all extremely weak characters with nothing to bring to the strip except bland dialogue. Story arcs are meaningless if the characters get nothing out of it.
Humor? To Tim Buckly:
We get it. People that buy computers are stupid. Get some new jokes. They were funny two years ago. You can stop now. Please stop copying Clerks.
Most of his strips are dry humor, have no punchline, are random words attacthed to the work "Fuck" at the end, or are a combination of all three. Write that down, and you may be able to achieve his success one day.
It is a horrid comic with nothing meriting it's rank in the list. It is that way because of Tim Buckley's position in the list when he started, not becuase of his first strip was better than Penny Arcade's first and its imbecilic to even suggest that. Why does Penny Arcade have at least 5 times as many readers, a convention they run every year, and a charity that Tim Buckley had to copy off of like everything else they do? I assure you it's not because they had a prettier first strip.
Also see this link for more brilliant insight:
and is the offer still up for the 500 dollars? The tone of Penny Arcade has obviously been taken from PA and added to CAD, and some might recall the Penny Arcade arc starring "L.H. Franzibald" who was an ovious parody of Tim Buckley with Tycho Saying "Should I just answer all your questions since I wrote all your fucking book?" But I know you. That's not good enough. Here's a clear-as-day example:
pa (in 1999):
cad (in 2003)
I'd say great minds think alike, but that'd require Tim Buckley to have a great mind. You can send my 500 dollars to Child's Play, but don't tell Tim Buckley. He might copy off of you like he did Childs Play.
and let me save you a rebutal from your predictable mind:
"You're a fag, a fucktard, a dipshit, and a penny arcade fanboy."
Jornak? You may recall me saying that this was just a quick dip down to your level of intelligence? I have officially emerged, and you and your paltry insults are now officially beneath me.
1 out of 5 only because I couldn't choose Zero or negative numbers.
Good day to you, sir.
