Welcome to BSS, Something Awful’s home for all things comic book related! That includes but is not limited to books from Marvel, DC, Image, Dark Horse, webcomics, newspaper strips, independently released books, the list is endless. In short if it's related to storytelling with pictures it belongs here.
Basic Something Awful Rules Apply Here.
Don't post links to illegally distribute books and don't boast about how you've "legitimately" obtained something.
Use The Report Button.
If you see somebody breaking the rules click the report button. Everyone hates poo poo posting and this helps prevent it.
Post With Effort.
Use correct spelling and punctuation, don't post one word/emoticon replies and most importantly before posting really ask yourself if you are contributing to the thread.
Don't Be A Creep.
It should go without saying but don't troll, create/import drama or be a creep. That includes e-stalking, posting fan fiction or your dreams and jokes of loving comic book characters.
It's Not Funny Anymore, Try Different Jokes.
Nobody likes worn out memes or catchphrases. If it's something you think you'd find on memegenerator or 4Chan don't post it. Take a trip through the SAclopedia if you want to find some things that have been run into the ground.
Threads & You.
If you want to discuss a book/topic/writer/artist but don't see a thread for one, make one. While low content threads are frowned on threads don't need to be wikipedia article length to start discussion.

NO MORE MOCK THREADS
The CAD and Deegan threads are the only mock threads in BSS for now. Don't post them. If you would like to learn how to improve your art skills there is an entire subforum for you to read. If you would like to discuss good webcomics there is a thread here in BSS and there are also plenty of threads focusing on individual comics. Alternatively if you would like to just mock internet crazies there's a thread in PFY that you might want to read.
