Hopefully he's learned something from this...though I doubt it. Even so, I'll still wait for this comic to keep coming. Just like the audio books. And the fan-art.

Yeah I miss the goofy weird poo poo where Looney Tunes characters were getting shot in the head.

A great deal of the charm of this comic for me comes from seeing stuff like Ronald McDonald quivering in the grip of weirdass psychosis, rather than watching two Original the Characters slowly duke it out in a plain red background. Any time a non-pre-existing character's got the spotlight (yes, including Rob + the trolls) I don't find it as funny. But whatever, dude's drawing what he wants I guess.

Let's not forget that these fight scenes take months to resolve and have very few funny bits to them.

IT WOULD NOT BE DIFFICULT MEIN FUHRER!



I think the fights' length is because LB doesn't quite know how he's going to end it, so he's buying himself time by drawing all of everything out until he can figure out what to do. Then of course once the fight goes on for too long people start to complain about it, which in tern causes LB to get angry and not want to continue making the comic at least until he cools down a bit. So we're stuck where we are now until LB figures a way out of this mess.

The solution is easy, restrict fights to 1 to 2 pages and fill the rest of it with necromancer loony toons and crazed fast food characters.

Portmanteaus are convenient

Lazerbot has always had very little to do with the entertainment value of TGT. Most of it has come from laughing at his poor grammar and artistic abilities, the fanart/videos in this thread, and his various meltdowns on Facebook. It is kind of sad he still hasn't realised that most people have been laughing at him, not with him, this entire time.

Of course, it's hard to take pity on someone who has exposed themselves as a bigot, openly insults/mocks his "fans", and is completely incapable of accepting even the mildest of constructive criticism.

His "perfect" comic was influenced by people's posts about the comic so I am not sure what your point is. Unless you are only referring to the earlier parts from before it got discovered, in which case, don't you mean his comic WAS perfect already?

Not as strong as you'd expect.

It was both, it still is both. The comic as viewed from here started as pure mocking, went to 'hey this is interesting' and even though you might argue it's lost it's way or whatever, we're still reading.

The out of comic stuff is also in that same area between mocking and interesting where we're still waiting to see what happens next. I still like those 'happy holidays' things he did up.

Even if the whole thing went completely belly up with the author dead or in a mental ward, we'd watch it to the end.

Can someone remind me what happened outside of this battle? What happened to the other characters? I thought Coyote was smugging against Demaro or something. This battle had been going on for so long and there are various events (the 'gay version', the 'Nazi version' and the 'LB pretending to quit version') that I am kind of totally lost.

Coyote is kicking Demaros rear end but they "mean whiled" away.
Tails neglected Ronald's apology but still showed mercy.
The troll slayers added some of the DK crew to their roster and a guy that doesn't give BJ's, Teemo (again) and Pikachu.
The troll king is off in the jungle going to do something with the words of death, Alex is following hoping to learn said words (but will probably die when he hears them).
Pori's doing something with his secret lab full of fetuses or clones or whatever.
Silver went inside to witness Sylvesters death by Jim Carrey Troll-son, Tom had his period.
Knuckles may or may not be missing.
Under-bite troll was revealed to be Bite-Under Troll and had his own filler comic where he let loose savage burns on the two trolls from the start of the comic.

"Tiny Trains"



God I had to take him right off my facebook, I thought he was off but I guess I just wasn't getting any of his previous stupid drama everyone was always going on about. He's always going on about true fans and poo poo and he's gotten really weird and it's just really sad. Apparently he's working on some new project and doesn't care about TGT enough since gently caress YOU NOT TRUE FANS. Everything is just that pony guy and a couple others posting the same poo poo every time.

I never thought I'd sour on TGT but the super long updates combined with a slow as poo poo fight has been pretty boring. He seems to be just phoning it in at this point. Maybe I wasn't reading or paying attention but I thought he'd get over what ever was bugging him and he'd go back to the same old weird but mostly positive Lazerbutt, but he seems like off-his-meds angry and bitter and the energy is seeping into the comic.

The only thing worse than his personal comments are the people commenting who are relentlessly trying to gain his approval. Also, it's really hard to stop myself from Facebook trolling the the master of trolls.

It's not exactly a new Tails Gets Trolled panel, but while going through my "weird Internet stuff" folder, I stumbled upon a rather bizarre and ultra-rare cover of Knuckles' Themes from Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles from 2009. Upon listening to it, I concluded that the song is likely the only fitting theme music for Tails Gets Trolled (or at least Knuckles).

As my gift to you, I have uploaded this song and put it up on Youtube...

Anyone else notice that these long-rear end fights only seem to happen between his original characters? Maybe he doesn't know what to do with them since their backstories/motivations aren't laid out in stone for him.

I think the only reason we've paid so much attention to it is that LB used to have a really good relationship with fans, including this thread, and the creator / fan interaction was full of energy and helped things along. Until recently, that is.

Though I did love your voice, it was extremely muppet-like, which makes me imagine what he'd look like in muppet form now.

It isn't going to happen because every single initial impression about LB turned out to be completely true, unless he is just master trolling everyone right now.

That's a suprise. I was honestly expecting to get torn to pieces - I was trying to tap into my inner Louis Armstrong.Guess that works out then, he really does look like a muppet - he's really got the mouth for it. Man, if this weird stuff never happened, someone might have actually gone out of their way and make an Under Bite Troll puppet (I don't care what Lazy says, he'll always be Under Bite Troll for me). And everyone would laugh about it. This thread gets kind of depressing sometimes - its like all the laughter and funny/stupid comments just up and left.

I think he is for Lazy too. I mean, even the last panel said "what will happen to underbite troll"...

Largely because the humor has been missing from the comic since LB switched to basically drawing fights starting last August. The only highlights are the short reprieves when we see what someone else is up to, but those are few and far between, namely the interlude between the Demaro/Garry fight in October and MEAN WHILE BACK TO SHADOW break in the current fight back in January.

You all seem to be forgetting Ronald McDonald's nervous breakdown and subsequent attempt to murder Tails. :colbert:

The comic certainly hasn't had as many good moments as it did in the beginning, but we did have four chapters all at once in the beginning. I should probably re-read the entire thing at some point. It's been awhile.
