Did you ever get those days when you’re bored and you look for drama to read to entertain yourself?
‘Cause I personally do very often and one day I searched on the web ‘bad webcomics’.’ Cuz I’m into webcomics.
And I found this site: The Bad Webcomics Wiki
If you don’t wanna check it out, their main page looks like this:
I’m personally still not sure what they’re going for with this website. ‘Improving our media with hatred’. I did skim through it, they have comic reviews, some are hilarious and well-deserved, but some are made out of pure hatred. So back to my dilemma – what are you guys going for? I get that you want to poke fun at some webcomics out there that are terrible and probably want to intimidate some wannabe artists, but seriously? Some will indeed quit and wet their pants, but some of those comics that you reviewed are still going strong and updating. (and not caring)
No matter what you guys do and the number of comics you take up for hammering and shredding, for 1 of your reviews there will always be 1597 more idiots doing offensive/tarded/amateurish comics!
Besides, a review of any kind equals traffic. 😉
And personally, If I see a comic get a negative review, I’ll check it out anyway, even if it’s for the wrong reasons, to see if it’s THAT hilarious.
Alright, to tell you the truth, I’ve got mixed feelings about this whole thing. A part of me checks it out and reads the reviews for kicks(and I’m gonna say it again: SOME are funny as heck) and yet, another part of me does not agree with it. I mean, seriously? Who cares what they do since it is not aimed at you? If you don’t like it, hit the X button and don’t read it. Some people’s feelings might be hurt, no matter what and I can’t agree with this. They were just trying to tell a story.(at least some were trying) And yet, here’s another part of me that doesn’t believe in ‘good comics’ and ‘bad comics’. I certainly believe in ‘comics I like’ and ‘comics I don’t like’.
On their forum, they have a list with comics to review, which proves my last point exactly:
Well, it’s a well-known fact that Homestuck is pretty much a phenomena with a HUGE fanbase. And The Way to Your Heart? It’s a great manga! The artist is very nice and very talented. Not a ‘Weaboo’ as these guys describe her. But maybe I am just biased. I love anime and manga! It’s my guilty pleasure! 😀 I don’t know why I like it(when it’s done right, of course), but I like it. They obviously hate this style, because everyone and their mom uses it nowadays and it’s a fad.
They have also picked on Flipside on several occasions and called it ‘mediocre’. I love this comic even with its flaws and all. And Candi, which sadly has a review made by an user who didn’t like a couple of the characters.
One is allowed to have an opinion, yes? I think some of these comics are great.
And I also think that there are more comics out there that just SUCK, but some people might find them awesome. If one has a story to tell, they are going to tell it anyway.
I found this one topic in the forums. It made me fall off my chair laughing.
Some guy who craved attention, made some anti- ‘wiki strips and posted them on dA. They were called ‘THE SHINING TURD’ series. It wasn’t long until they were found. You want to know their reaction?
This was entertaining, really. ^^ And the dudes at the wiki were as ‘pissed off’ as I am now. (bwahahahaha) So pissed off, it made my day!
This is what happens when a ‘weaboo’ is bored and would do anything they can for attention.
PS: Gotta LOVE his signature! (“My love for you is like diarrhea, I can’t hold it in.”)
Now, to end this – I have no hard feelings against anyone who runs this site. I even said it’s hilarious(for the most part) but I don’t fully agree with what you do there. Yes, I’m a hypocrite(for the most part).
Keep up the good work(not the bad work!)! ^^
And please, stop wondering if I made any sense with this post, because I wasn’t trying to make sense. 😉 It’s only a rant.
