About the comic: 'Cause I got some 'slaining ta do!
Here's a new comic, based loosely on Dinosaur Comics (http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=1). I hope you find it pretty okay.

This comic is actually an experiment. It's a test to see if I can commit to two webcomics at the same time. I think I'll start off relatively simple, so "Dinosaur Comic Format" seems to be a logical first step. It's also something for me to write if I don't feel like writing Super Smash B-List at the moment or just don't have any ideas for it. It's also to flex my humour muscle, which is what SSB-List was originally for but it evolved into a plot-based comic pretty darn fast.

So enjoy the wonderful world of silliness, non-sequiters and alternate hidden text! Because you know how you always thought a Mario/Men In Black crossover would be cool? This is nothing like that at all! :tongue:

Comic 10 (http://i41.tinypic.com/2hnb786.png) "durp-de durp-de doo" was inspired by a Townie who used that term to insult my role-playing technique and me personally. He really hurt my feelings. Dink. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, DINK!


Characters: Yes, I do already have this section filled out! You callin' me a liar!?


http://i43.tinypic.com/fbvyoh.png
Agent G:Which stands for "goomba"

She's the newest addition to the KIB! She's eager and perky, although her spirit has been a little drained by her senior officer, Agent K. She is also prone to low self-esteem.

http://i43.tinypic.com/4zwbdl.png
Agent K:Which stands for "Kelsy", his real name. Don't tell anyone.

A senior officer of KIB, and is enthusiastic about his duty. However, he is old, and his opinions are somewhat out-of-date. He likes Agent G, and plans to nurture her into a great agent. He does not care for Mario.
http://i40.tinypic.com/2rfuiap.png
Mario: This guy's in EVERYTHING!

This guy always seems to be in a hurry to get somewhere. Too much of a hurry to stomp on our favourite koopa, something Agent K is quite bitter about. Nonetheless, Mario will always put his opinions into the conversation.
http://i40.tinypic.com/15cljkz.png
McCloud:He's a character?!

McCloud is the strong, silent type. He likes to listen rather then talk, but occasionally adds to the conversation. He is very polite, a novelty these days.

I have updated this webcomic.

Comic 6: This is based on an improv game I played once. It was fun.http://i43.tinypic.com/qx5nrm.png

[EDIT]P.S: No, actually. It was actually from Fox McCloud. :smallredface:

I just thought it be more creative then my original name I came up for it: Cloudy the Cloud.

Nice!

Ehm.... no. This is not for me. I find that you reuse the same images the whole time boring. I know, those are probably the whole thing about this comic, but it just doesn't do it for me. Sorry Q, but I salute you for trying and good luck getting readers, I don't think youšll have any trouble. Looks like you already got some.

There is no need to post, then. It's just rude, to state that you dislike the comic. You clearly did not read his 'About the Comic' entry, which explains why the images are all the same. It is not because of laziness. So please, if you have to dislike it, keep it to yourself, unless you have some constructive critique that won't require him to change the whole concept.

He didn't say it was lazy. He said he didn't like the concept.

Fair enough. The important thing is that you gave it a chance. :smallsmile:

Personally, I find this format quite interesting. You are contricted to the same six panels, with actions and characters in different panels, and the dialogue has to make sense of it all. Well, it doesn't have to, but I find it hilarious how many ways you can justify an action in a certain panel. For example, the final (http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=90) frame (http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=409)of Dinosaur comics. I also find it hilarious with minor art (http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=799) changes (http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=1024).

But, whatever floats your boat.

Anyway, time to UPDATEIFY!

Too soon?

Would it be any less scary if I explained that that comic was all just fiction written by Agent G, and never actually happened?

Why is it always the same thing with different words?

It's a constrained comic. Like 'Dinosaur Comics'.
I don't know why. Maybe because he doesn't have to put any effort into the art so he can focus that time on the writing?

Comic 10: "durp-de durp-de doo" was inspired by a Townie who used that term to insult my role-playing technique and me personally. He really hurt my feelings. Dink. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, DINK!

Funny story. This was originally going to be a cynical review of the movie "Up", but then I realized that whatever I dislike about the movie probably has a lot less to do with the format of the movie and everything to do with me. So, here is an arguement. Enjoy!

P.S:
My head hurts.

Never do that again, Q. Please.

So you're confused by MY comic, are you? Well, for the movie I was talking about, imagine that confusion times 3, minus the whole "Mario enemies in dark suits" thing. Oh, and there's a plot somewhere about a guy doing stuff. And death by jellyfish.


Why is it always the same thing with different words?

Because I like the style. I think it's a really interesting way to write, and I wanted to try it out for myself.

It's also, coincidentally, very easy to make. It's something to write if I feel like writing, but not for Super Smash B-List.
