    Default The art sucks.

    The characters look absurd. Their limbs are too thick, their feet are too short, their hands are weird-shaped with fat fingers and five digits each. Every character's left eye seems to be the exact same size as the right. And their heads are all bizzar, non-circular shapes. It isn't even consistant: one character's head is shaped completely different from another's!

    And what, pray tell, are those rediculous protrusions in the middle of their faces??

    Horrible. Jamie Noguchi, go back to art school.

    Uh, hopefully you're being sarcastic. In case you're not, you don't have to watch the comic if you don;t like it.

    Either this was sarcasm and brilliant, or just... err... brilliant.

    In case it isn't clear, see the last panel of this comic:

    To the OP:
    your post is ALSO brilliant! This whole thread is brilliant!

    That's just sad. I can see you now; you're watching a horror movie and you'll ask the guy sitting next to you, "oh my god, please tell me vampires aren't real!"

    He got it wrong, easy enough to do with sarcasm on the internet, no need to jump him.

    ROFL! Nice one, Hydro. And here I thought it was gonna be a troll post, from the title.

    It's just too bad I didn't think of it first... :(

    Yea, misscommunications happen. No big deal.

    I personally didn't even think the wink-smiley should be necessary, but I suppose one can never be completely sure whether a post is completely in fun or half-serious.

    Yeah thats one thign that always bugged me about communicating via text, it's normally near impossible to distinguish between sarcasm and seriousness.
    Church: "Thanks for the support Griff, way to be a team player"
    Griff: "Hey I gotta think about myself here"
    Church: "There's no 'I' in team Griff"

    While I must admit that I don't find the art aesthetically pleasing, I think it is done intentionally: you can see a lot of skill in what's being done, and it seems pretty clear that a lot of those decisions on aesthetics were likely quite intentional.

    My speculation is that it was done purposely to give a certain level of discomfort, and to also set it aside visually

    I admit that I wasn't sure at first whether the first post was sarcastic. Probably because I wasn't familiar with the original poster.

    You mean the line about the 'ridulous protusions in the middle of their faces' didn't give it away?

    You know, I saw the title, and thought I'd pop in and throw out a compliemtary "Let's see YOU do better, punk" and a good draw-and-quartering. I love sarcasm at this level.

    Yeah the smiley should have definetively give it away, not to mention "five digits" and "different head shapes"...Shall I really disgrace myself and admit that I still needed to read the thread and reread the original post to get it?
    But taking that in account- your thread succeeded exactly

    But it's sometimes really hard to get sarcasm on a written text when you don't have nonverbal signs - and not being an english native makes it not easier. So nobel prize for the one inventing the smilies.

    Yeah, sometimes when you read something on the Internet you dont know if it is provocation, sarcasm or, what's wars, serious post. Better to be sure :D

    well I don't like the art either and saying 'then just don't read it' is annoying as well... it was a new thing to the website so im sure alot of people read it and didnt enjoy something about it , or else they loved it... I for one was disappointed and will take stick figures over the new comic anyday

    The internet can only convey Hatred. Any other attempt to show an emotion leads to vague, incomprehensible, verb-noun agreement; melt lions.
