LB will start posting comics again when he realizes that the cats would rather wander off than beg him for food.

It was a lot of fun. Best wishes to LB, and his future endeavors.

Eh, I'd be willing to bet a quantity of money that he's just trying to mess with us. Again.

I give it a week before he makes another page.

It's the second of these two. He certainly can go on a hell of a rant, but genuinely crazy people off their meds are even less lucid.

I could pretty much see this coming- TGT has been running for more than a year now (!) and creative work is draining, especially over a long period of time. I think that LB just plain ran out of steam and it's a source of frustration for him. It's easy to recharge your creative batteries when you have this feedback loop of people praising your stuff and creating derivative works, but when that drops off it all feels like a slog (and of course it's dropped off because nobody cares about the 3 month long fights.)

This was crazy enough for me, but who knows, this might not even be the end of it. You think he can really make it the rest of the whole year without starting some more drama? It's just fishing for compliments and he's probably going to blow up again when goons don't come begging for more pink and rainbow cat food haha what the gently caress comics.

For me, if it has to end with a big meltdown (and I wish it didn't) I would've rather seen the comic suddenly cut away to Lazerbot's self-insert prattling off the rant and killing Tails or something. The comic is just gonna end on...some dude fighting electrospiders.

I bet he'll go back to doing comics soon enough, and I'll read em, but even if he does it won't be the same after this meltdown. It'll just be another Chris-chan situation. This sounds really patronizing, and I don't mean it to be, but I just really wanted to believe that this time, the guy behind the weird Sonic/Looney Tunes anime murder fancomic was just a weird guy making a weird thing, and not...nuts. I could forgive his weird homophobic rants but this last one was just...nuts.

Can we give it a few days before calling it? I'm throwing my lot in with the theory that when he sees people will just move on instead of begging him for more pages, he'll go back to making this comic. So I don't want to say it's completely over and done with, yet.

Lest we forget; Lazerbot was more or less done when we found this thing. There was a huge amount of time between chapters four and five.

Had nothing to do with goons, really. He was only even making the damned things because of goons after a certain point. He also seems to have a terrible sense of humor and a very thin skin, which for the author of a story about dealing with trolls, is kind of funny in of itself.

And it was because the ongoing feud with Pony-guy that the homophobic stuff ever came out. He may have been "uh, yeah. whatever." at first, but he constantly sparred with that guy on facebook at which point "uh, yeah. whatever." became "uh, yeah, also you're probably gay, but that's cool, whatever." Then he couldn't figure out why using that term as a pejorative towards someone antagonizing him might offend people. Basically we thought Tails was his self-insert character, when it was actually Sonic :v:

I honestly hope he's just burnt out from doing the comic for over a year, and isn't seriously broken/crazy.

I actually wish some fan-art was made of scenes that haven't happened yet to wrap up the storylines. Like what Xenogears did in Disc 2 when they ran out of money and had to gloss over a lot of planned story points.

And now; let us remember the good times.

From humble, early beginnings;




To the first fan art:


To the tidal wave of fanart

The early animated pages

To the first fan song...

... And JFlights wonderful discography...

... And unforgettable videos, featuring amazing voice talent

To the introduction of :fut:

The timeless troll-off

To Shadow, Destroyer of Worlds:


I'd love a more comprehensive list. For instance, I couldn't find that large painting of the iconic Tails face.

I don't get the people being all apologetic to the guy. SA's been nothing but nice to him, and he's been nothing but condescending, demanding and rude to his fans. The whole "zen master" thing we projected onto him was just our imagination, he's an idiot manchild who had a breakdown over imagined slights, just like so many webcomic dudes before him.

He'll still always be fun to compare against Buckley and Mookie, cause he's genuinely a better artist than both. At least he's got some effort and passion for something, even if it is loving nuts.

Plus, it's laughably closed-minded to say that we were the only TGT fans. He's been listening to more than just goons for input. There's TONS more people following it on Facebook, a small but pretty dedicated following on Tumblr, and plenty of people directly posting on his DA too. He had quite the following. Perhaps you could say goons were the most dedicated, or the ones he listened to most, but I don't really think you can point fingers anywhere, honestly. But that's just my two cents, I dunno.
