Webcomics - Because....


Recommended Posts

Won't be missing that service. Tired of following links to a webcomic and getting a 'not available in your area' message. 

(They basically blocked most of Europe out because they didn't want to handle GDPR requirements)

 

I hope the artists have found new sites and transferred their tuff.

This is why there was a phase spider in Megan's first level Eberron game.   So, I chanted 'One of us! One of us!' until she punched my arm.   The Auld Grump - I love my wife.   

Foxes in Love is a rather fun, light hearted comic I've started reading on a regular basis...

They didn't bother notifying the artists.

 

The only notice was at the very bottom of their front page, in small print.

 

I had to tell one of the creators that his comic was gone from the internet - thankfully, he had made back ups, because it was far past the date they gave for pulling back material before deletion.

 

Ed is now looking for a new host.

Those sons of Orcs...   

 

Did they list a reason for why they ended it?   

 

 

They were bought out, the new company did a bunch of changes, popularity dropped, then they decided to do region blocking rather than adapt to EU rules, so popularity dropped further, then... *POOF!*

 

It reminded me a bit of when Platinum bought Drunk Duck. (Now, The Duck Webcomics.)

For other comics...

 

The one that I've been most amused by is Does Not Play Well With Others. It's a sequel series/spin-off of Exploitation Now. Only one character from EN really continues into the new story and is in the secondary character lists after kind of showing up later in EN and then being one of the new characters that took over the plot and took a comedy series into something rather dark. The main two characters are a Naga and a Witch...and it is a lot of darker humor mixed with random hijinks with anime, superheroes/villains, monsters, aliens, vampires, and a lot of other things that tend to pop in and out.

 

While it's been dead for a long while (An author update in 2010...), I still go back and read Suicide For Hire. It takes the right mindset and is largely dead baby comedy style. Basically two edgy losers who get paid by people to kill them...and it's brutal in how it goes about it and a lot of attempts at philosophy in it.

 

Another old one I revisit off and on is Minus...a rather light hearted but creepy comic about a little kid with reality warping powers. It finished its run a long while ago...

 

Full Frontal Nerdity (And PS238, and Use Sword On Monster, and Nodwick) is more of a straight up amusing thing to get a laugh at. While Nodwick started in in the Dungeon/Dragon magazines, I actually prefer Full Frontal Nerdity while the other two are a superhero school and an odd scifi/fantasy thing by the same author, all on the same site.

 

Sequential Art is more of just random amusement with occasional story bits and general insanity.

It has been a long time and I go in and out of reading web comics. There are a few that have stopped that were my favorites. 

I would come into the office.  These and a few tech tabs would be opened and read before work started.  Oldies. Going to early cons and meeting/ talking to them while most of them were still in college.
