Unless lazerbot is going to pull another one of his surprisingly aware genre subversions, I'm totally flagging three-eyes as the villain behind the villain. I kinda hope he leads onto that and makes his move on the troll king only to get a

'ha ha
i new all

fool'

and he gets his head ripped off in a comically gratuitous fashion. Anyway, hurray for more TGT.

A a little fan request, you should totally fit some TTGL music in at some point, the entire soundtrack in a masterclass of shounen emotional cues.

Hurray, Garry made it!

It's because he's the underdog. Three eyed dude is way too smug and sinister, so even being an evil troll, he's still the dude against the ropes and shounen law number one is root for the guy against the ropes. He's probably gonna go out sooner or later but y'know, this ancillary characters they have to take what they can get.

Oh my god. "hey i made appearance in this chapter" was foreshadowing.

Everyone was like "oh haha that's pretty random" but no, Trollface was letting us in on the fact that he would be murdering one of the cooler characters. We're complicit.

Is this sarcasm or genuine SMG? Because yeah, this thread can be pretty fawning over anything L-B does, but it's still alot of fun to follow so if you're being mean, could you knock it off please?

What's there to be sarcastic about? Not only did LB plan this out months in advance, it's avant-garde as gently caress.

Ah okey, read too much into what you said, which is ironic I guess, nevermind.

w/r/t Trollface, he doesn't really seem the type to get his own shounen fight scene, I have him pegged has more of a cowardly oppurtunistic scumbag, like a 4chan version of Joaquin Phoenix's character in Gladiator. which if why he murdered Slyvester from the shadows with a weapon rather than bring out the crazy fightscene powers. If he lasts long enough I wouldn't be suprised if he takes a pop at his old man as well considering he's a dignified honourable patriarch type villain.

I don't think that's really fair to LazerBot, right from the start of the comic it's been clear that he's written Shadow as an unstable and unethical character and not a revenge fantasy, and the violence of the comic is more like that of a comically violent manga than a realistic depiction human suffering. Dude's always struck me as an eccentric but pretty decent and responsible guy.

Shut up. There's nothing wrong with addressing bigotry, even relatively innocent and unintended bigotry, when it arises. I mean, not like there's any gay people reading the thread who can't blow it off as easy as you chill dudes, right? And Lazerbot is a decent and reasonable dude, I doubt he needs anyone white-knighting his ethical blindspots.

e: Seriously, gently caress you for making that comparison. People can comment on people expressing lovely opinions without making it a 'social justice parade', and Lazerbot expressing homophobic comments is exactly something which should be bought up by his fanbase. And there is a world of difference between LGBT* folk and tumblr social justice narcissists, so maybe try not to be a huge bigot yourself by intentionally mixing the two?

Kate Beaton - run out the forums by LF and YCS goons creeping on her.

LazerBot - read a calm and reasonable off-site discussion on a problematic issue issue in his work; furious.

The two aren't really comparable, LazerBot really needs to learn how to deal with critical discussion, SA is not his official fanclub site.

Funny you should say that because I thought that was the most Dragonball Z-esque panel of the comic, that monologue and beam attack finisher is about as classic DBZ villain as you can get. Anyway, here's hoping to a fresh start!

Yeah, I don't really see the point going over this again, LB does have some extenuating circumstances with his brain problems and if that's not enough for you fine, homophobia is always nasty to experience and no-one would fault you for voting the thread down and moving on, but bringing it up again and again is just going to get the Goony-rear end Goons to start shrieking about the invasion of 'SomethingSensitive' SJWs again and the thread'll just go down in flames and get locked again. LB is mentally ill and kind of a dick because of it, but unless he starts endorsing actual hate crimes or gets his Jack Chick on you're going to have to leave your distaste for his opinions at the door.

Just wanna echo y'all in saying it's great to see LB has got back on the horse, these panels have been as good as any of the old stuff and the dude does seem to be making a conscious effort not to stay in any one scene too long that it outstays its welcome, though I'm actually pretty hype about how he's going to finish the DBZ battle between Rob and Hindo at this point, dude's definitely been paying attention to his shounen animes.

Let's not pretend the robot author isn't sexist, transphobic, homophobic and really stupid. That much should be apparent, there's no real denying that.

That said, it still doesn't really take away from my enjoyment of the comic, since I never really hyped up LazerB in my head to be some sort of comedic genius. He's an idiot, that's why most of us are reading this comic (I think).

Also I'm a cis white privledge male person, so that probably why I'm not as affected by casual misogyny and the like. I think it's good to talk about these issues, rather than just pretending they don't exist.

Pretty much this. Stop getting in a poo poo that people don't like LB's casual bigotry, it's really childish.

It's most likely a trolling based economy, based around centrally planned rapid growth with the aim of continual agressive expansion, which would explain the Troll King's pending robo-troll army and the escalation of troll forces appearing outside of their home territory. If this troll imperialism were to stop, their economy would like grind to a halt as nearly all their productive capacity is currently directed towards offense-based trolling gear (i.e. trollface masks, robo-trolls, bespoke trolling equipment such as Gary's nanomachine clone) and is of no use to a peacetime nation, but whilst in a state of successful expansion would provide significant short-term economic growth to fund these extravagant trolling incursions.

As mentioned, Sonic the Comic UK was actually a pretty good kids comic, it didn't take itself too seriously even in the arch-villain arcs and had a Sonic you could totally imagine was voiced by Jaleel White. Also later in the comic Amy and a female original character to the comic got a spinoff where they had kick-rear end feminist adventures and launched a catapult at an ultra-advanced time traveling robot from the future.
