Man, this thread is great. I kept forgetting to actually post in it while just following Lazerbot's story and checking out all the awesome fan art and animations, but the other comics recommended in this thread are also fantastic. All of them have a very outsider-type approach in one way or another and I'm loving it.

For some reason, all I could think of while reading Hitmen For Destiny was that it'd translate really well to the medium of a Syfy original series.

Lazerbot, if you really are reading this, thanks for the work. Your comic's a blast and I hope that you keep doing what it is you do best and never let any rear end whole trolls try and bring you down.

This is really awesome. Reminds me of thecatamite's games, especially Space Funeral.

Funny you mention that, since the catamites guy said he was heavily influenced by J Chastain. Space Funeral also had a way rad soundtrack http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ch-TDGW-zXs

Also, I'm not really getting the hype for "Hitmen for Destiny." The art style is really offputting and generic and the panel sequencing is just tedious as hell.

This is like an unironically good version of that godawful Cartoon Network anime comic where Mandy was responsible for 9/11. The art is somehow better, too.

Holy poo poo, Hitmen For Destiny. I'm in the Passion, Lies, and Fungus part and this might be some of the most convoluted series of events for what is essentially a sub-sub-sub-sub part of the actual story. This is crazy.

Finally got around to finishing Hitmen for Destiny and holy poo poo is this brilliant! Especially the ending. I was completely blown away by Jymre's gambit near the end. I feel if this guy got in touch with a good artist and a decent proofreader he could be churning out gold.

Sorry don't know. It wasn't swedish or finnish, if that helps. I don't know a single word of norwegian, so it might be that.

EDIT: I just kind of found it funny this norwegian person (literally) demonized my whole language. It's cool though, finnish is the odd man out in the nordic languages (it has ural roots instead other nordic languages), so I'm not mad or anything.

EDIT EDIT: gently caress, I just realized I don't have a clue about scandinavia (and I live there!). The words might even be Danish or Icelandic. And I just had to check what language they speak in Iceland. I'd probably flunk elementary school geography now. I'm a poor scandic person :negative:

I guess this comic gives us all something to reflect on.

It's definitely not Icelandic and I'm pretty sure it's not Danish either. Most likely it's just some random gibberish with some Norwegian words thrown in for good measure.

The thing with Hitmen for Destiny is that a web comic probably wasn't the best medium for the story, but it really is one hell of a story. The author has a talent for writing, but not art.

To stay on-topic, I would say that lazerbot is better at art because it's more affecting (intentionally or not), though both are in the "lovely mspaint" tier

The part that got me the most about it was when we discover the whole reason he put his and everyone else around him's lives in incredible danger time and time again, trying to change destiny in his favor, was all because he wanted to impress a girl in his home world because he felt like she deserved better than him, a minimum wage worker living with his mother.

This much I'll agree on. Hitmen's monster designs were well thought out, but the art left a lot to be desired. At least Tails gets trolled has art that by itself elicits some sort of response.

It seems mostly like very gibberish-ized Norwegian to me. Some sentences are recognizable, some are not.

EDIT: Holy poo poo, i read a spell backwards, and it was just... backwards Norwegian. Gotta check if all of it is like that. :psyboom:
e2: Yup, looks like most of it just Norwegian written backward! Well, the WORDS are written backwards, but the sentence structure remains the same. Not all of it though. Some of it looks kinda latin.

I really hate to continue the Hitmen derail, but this isn't necessarily the case. At least, he may not be very good at narrative prose. He is, however, very good at visual timing, which is a different sort of skill. The art in that comic is unfortunate but I can't imagine the story being told quite as well in another medium.

Too bad it's already completed, though we could always talk about his still ongoing space-spy one.

Maybe we need a 'Good Bad Webcomics' megathread in BSS, where we post and discuss all the :effort: mspaint comics that somehow manage to be entertaining in spite of themselves.

That wouldn't really fit for Hitmen, though. It's good in spite of the art, but that was seriously one of the most well-written stories I have ever read in any medium. The characters were well fleshed out and very rarely

I'm going to stop gushing before I contribute to a derail. I think we just need a thread.
