    Default EX‹BERANCE - fun time story for kids!



    NOW UPDATED 10:37 PM EST, 3/23/09

    INTRODUCTION - Please read!
    Spoiler
    Show
    A non-OOTS style, non-interactive, non-written or drawn by a talented writer or artist comic.

    You see, when I said it was interactive, I really just meant that you can tell me whatever you want, and I will promptly ignore you.

    No, I don't own a dictionary.

    Suggestions are always welcome, however.

    Anyway, I'm just going to come out and say it. This comic will most likely be ridiculous, cheesy, and badly drawn.

    It is also mine, so if anyone but me calls it ridiculous, cheesy, and badly drawn, I will have no choice but to fight them.

    It's not that I'm so overly sensitive or defensive of my work, but, well, honor demands it, and who am I to overrule centuries of pointless bloodshed?

    And now, without further ado (actually, there are four words left in this sentence, not including what I'm currently typing in parentheses or the title of the comic, so that's still a little bit of ado left, I guess, but I hope you are willing to overlook this transgression against your expectations and continue on, brave reader), I present to you...

    EX‹BERANCE!

    Okay, okay, I lied again. There's still just a tad more ado to be had. I'd just like to thank you for your time (seriously, this has been a pretty long-winded introduction, and it's not even over!) and to beseech you to continue reading, even if it's terrible, so that I can feel validated in my existence and continue churning out half-baked ideas before a disinterested and comic-jaded audience. Deal?

    And that's all the ado I can manage today, so, here goes...

    [Comic was originally here - scroll down to see]

    Also: the first comic is somewhat wall-of-texty, and I realize that. I've got our best moose-wranglers by day / wall-of-text-tearing-downers by night on the job.

    Seriously, though, there are a couple comics in the "prologue" section that may have a lot of text, but just bear with me here. It'll all be over soon. And I mean that in a good way, not in an "OH GOD OH GOD WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE WAAAGH" way.

    Please excuse the terrible jokes contained within this post, I'm nervous and/or an idiot.

    The second comic will most likely be posted in an hour or so...I just want to see if I can get some attention with the intro first.

    I'm also willing to take requests for EX‹BERANCE style artwork/avatars, if anyone wants anything. I'm kinda bored of OOTS style drawing, but I'd still let to get some extra practice in.

    What a breath of freshness this comic turned out to be. Finally, a webcomic that is actually funny without unnecesarilly long textblocks. Non-oots style too

    Never trust a tree.

    This philosophy has served me well thus far.

    You accidentally a whole bottle of Coke?

    In any case, I'm sorry that you feel that way, I suppose. If it helps, I can give you a backrub. No?

    Seriously, though, it would help/be nice if instead of just saying "I'MA LEAVE!" you actually posted some sort of advice or suggestion or even just clarified as to what exactly is confusing you. I mean, I understand that the circumstances of Charles' appearance in the clearing are a bit fuzzy, but they really haven't been explained yet. He's confused too. If you mean that you are confused about what is actually going on in the comic, as opposed to the circumstances...then that's a problem, I guess, although I have no idea why you would be confused in that regard. It's pretty clear what's going on ó he wakes up, talking worm says hi, he talks with talking worm.

    I really don't mean to be harsh, but constructive criticism > all.

    Thanks for the benefit of the doubt. :)

    The next comic is actually a big exposition comic, so hopefully that will illuminate things a bit.

    I entirely understand and agree. I mean, I find the comic odd so far, and not entirely sensical, but I figure it will become less confusing in future comics. Departing from a thread is best done silently or else with a productive explanation of why you didn't enjoy it.

    I must say, I do like the art so far! All in all, the comic is strange, but I will keep coming back to read tish for at least a little while (possibly very regularly for quite some time, depending on how it goes!).

    Ha, I like it. Very surreal, with witty humour. You actually made me laugh out loud, well done you

    I have no bladed weapons to give you though. You'll have to settle for my admiration. Which isn't as useful for cutting things, I'll admit.

    Very surreal, with witty humor? Kinda what I was goin' for. SUCCESS!

    I was worried it came across as "This is your brain on drugs, minus the funny."

    Let's just wait and see what happens.

    Seriously, though. I only have a rudimentary plan for the plotóI don't have everything written out. I'll probably be as surprised by what happens as you will.
