The transformation from defender to slaughterer, the escalation from petty verbal insults to full blown murder, culminating in the futility of an all out war against an ultimately faceless enemy. The story of a century. Love and loss, and loss, and loss, and bloody bloody gory loss.

I love this comic.

I also don't get why you're taking a dump on this thread. Not all the fanart is equally hilarious, but it's all just a sincere celebration of how entertaining and ridiculous this guy's stuff is. The only thing I wouldn't want is for people to start harassing the guy in real life and trying to humiliate him and creepily document every second of his life like with Chris-chan.

Chris-Chan hasn't been doing anything for the past one hundred years, so I'm sure that, if the same dudes that were harassing Chris Chan were to find Lazerbot, they'd start trying to look for ways to harass him too.

Which I hope doesn't happen, because this dude is awesome, while Chris-Chan is not.

This is literally incredible voice work with superb recording quality, and I am having a very difficult time justifying using anything else (at least for page 2) because holy poo poo. What recording setup are you using for this?

Edit: Weird, I'm getting issues when I try to edit or use your mp3 in various applications and just seeing a few seconds of silence on media timelines, despite being able to play it back in audio players fine. Did the encode get mucked up somehow? It looks like the vbr is doing crazy things.

I can always just rerecord the wav out, but if you have another version you could chuck up that'd be awesome.

The original face is funny because it's really expressive for an mspaint, and clearly shows utter speechlessness in the face of a brutal troll assault. The fanart is funny because it's a grotesque shot of that frame coming from cartoon tradition of disgusting closeups. The humor stems from it being an homage to Ren & Stimpy / Spongebob grossout shots, not that it's a super high-quality version of the facial expression. It's fine to not find that sort of thing funny as humor is utterly subjective, but I think it works pretty well.

If anything I flubbed implementing it into the animation by not timing that musical flourish (which as part of the song just randomly sort of synced close and I didn't realize until I viewed the rendered version) and not making the face take up more of the screen. If we get a few of these done I'll probably make a remastered version and include those changes.

This thread has 150,000 views; it's ludicrous to expect him to not find out about us, and pointless trying to keep it a secret. We find his comic entertaining, he's taking everything in stride while enjoying the attention, and all signs point to him wanting to continue with his work. Obviously nobody should act like a creepy stalker, as that's just plain rude and nothing good can come from it, but I think it's perfectly fine to discuss his creations and make awesome fanart.

Lazerbot himself said that he really liked the animation (including the grossout shot) and I'm sure he's flattered by all the great artwork that's been produced, so I think everything's gravy.

I truly believe he's real because there are people out there like this. I knew someone who's train of thought literally sounded almost exactly like the way Sonic and friends are talking. Repeated himself like 4 times after saying something, weirdly obsessed with being TOTALLY NOT HOMO GUYS, had the understanding of romance that a 12 year old does. Not even graduating into the Nice Guy jocks-and-bitches "understanding" socially off types usually get, as in flat out zero idea about relationships aside from "girls are pretty". He was also totally obsessed with one or two subjects and it was difficult to ever steer the conversation away from anything else. Still struggling to get his GED, too. Oh, and he was in his mid 20s. Genuinely nice guy though, I felt bad for him.

I'm pretty sure people like that have a case of mild autism or something along those lines.

Also, he's not crazy, he's making it bad on purpose. There are too many hints of self awareness like the "not looking gay to the viewers" comment, and the spelling and grammar errors are too numerous and too consistent to be real, no matter how old he really is.

I agree with you, but somehow the magic is in the way that it all comes off as dead serious when read. Somehow, he's managed to perfectly capture the essence of a terrible fancomic without making a blatant satire. Without the few "not looking gay to the viewers" references/etc, this could really be mistaken for a legit comic by an insane person. As it is, it's a comic done by an insane artist.

Also, I think I have laughed harder reading through this thread (specifically the first 8 or so pages) than I have all month long. Thank you, Nunez and lazerbot.

Nope, and for the record no Sonic or Pokemon either. He loved Wrestling and crime dramas.

He also had that same pseudo-justice thing going on where his heart was in the right place and he genuinely wanted to make things right but had this black and white through-a-kid's-eyes kind of view on everything. The Law is right No Matter What, etc.

Came to post this - I think lazerbot's personality is naturally like this. These people aren't just on the internet, you can find 'em anywhere. They're really outward, and enjoy aimless, indulgent conflict as entertainment.

Exactly. This is why the fan art works. It stylizes how industrious and vulgar this comic is. Doesn't matter if it's trolling or genuine inspiration.

Upon discovering this thread, he took some inexplicable screens and requested the thread's title be changed. That was his priority. I doubt the comic's gonna take a major turn.

A lot of people have been claiming that this isn't "real", and that we are supposed to laugh at it. Personally, I think this a kind of Tommy Wiseau situation, where it started out sincere but once people started laughing at it the creator decided that, while it wasn't what they originally had in mind, it's still pretty cool that people are enjoying what they make. So yea, its kind of a mixture of both sincere and intentionally funny. I'll enjoy it either way.

Lazerbot is the real deal and he should be preserved from the influence of his fans as if he is a protected national treasure. Which he is.

I'm kinda wondering what he means about a hosed up port though. He's using a mouse, and my thoughts go immediately to USB. Now maybe I'm just an incredibly lucky person, but I got like 4 USB ports to choose from here, all of which will readily accept and install drivers for a mouse.
