He's talked alot since then and it's clear computer problems are the only reason he stopped. Even if it wasn't...these loving comics are like 48 pages long. Give him time and just watch his youtube series while you wait.

I don't even know what to say about it. He's seriously setting it up for No Ears Guy to stop the trolls once and for all. It's seriously brilliant.

I think what makes this comic really fascinating is that, in spite of initial appearances, this comic is actually telling a coherent story. It starts out as just "Sonic characters murder a bunch of strawmen for the sake of the author's catharsis" (which is really standard Deviantart stuff, all things considered) but quickly becomes a real struggle. The characters aren't just slaying the trolls, they're battling them (and so far, they really seem to be losing). It's interesting and we're actually invested in it past reading it solely for its insight into some crazy kid's mind, because an actual plot is unfolding.

He takes all these bad Deviantart cliches, but takes them just a single step further and ends up making something legitimately entertaining. The characters, while obviously nothing like their source, are all actually consistently portrayed, and he's making up his fight scenes himself rather than just tracing DBZ fights.

I seriously, wholeheartedly think that, if Lazerbot is 14-15 that he will probably grow into a halfway decent writer. And if he's 20 as he says, then he can rest easy knowing he's a far cut above the competition.

Given his youtube videos I'd say he's around thirteen. But yeah early comparisons to Chris Chan are misleading. Both stories are "It's so bad, it's good" but for different reasons and with Sonic & Tails being much better written while still being hilarious.

Chris Chan half assed writing a comic he intended to make millions off of by using it only to vent and continue his obsession over Sonic. The story inside was completely accidental. Lazerbot is doing this out to vent, obsess over his interests, and a sincere desire to actually write/draw stuff as opposed to 'have' wrote something. Unlike Chris Chan he isn't half assing anything and earnestly wants to make a comic were Shadow the Hedgehog gets an epic, funny adventure with internet trolls being the main obstacle.


I'll second that notion too. Say what you will about him but he has heart and entertaining as hell.

I'm amazed that he's still so invested in this story after all this time. It seems like the kind of story that somebody would make after a really rage-inducing gaming session... but it's been months since he started.

I didn't think anyone could have so much anger.

It's become much more than that for a long time now. I mean the trolls killed Sonic and most his friends, Bugs and Daffy died horrible deaths, and our protagonist Shadow actions disgust even his friends. This is a comic that Lazerbot thought 'vampires and nazis are so yesterday, trolls are the future'. I have no idea if this is ironic or earnest, but it's a weird little comic that doesn't fit into 'impotent internet rage' category we've seen in the past.

This is not the case with Lazerbot. You always know what's going on in Tails Gets Trolled and the plot goes in directions that are both surprising and satisfying. (I was genuinely stoked when Sonic went to the mountain and sought counsel with the Egg Man, for example.) I know that some people see this as evidence that Lazerbot is The Uber Troll, but again- just watch the YouTubes. The person who classified this as outsider art early in the thread really pegged it.

Lazerbot is what happens when you have people like Henry Darger grow up with Sonic the Hedgehog and MSpaint on their laptops.

So basically Sonic was right this entire time, there didn't have to be any villains because Trolls were created and instigated by the prejudice and cruelty of mankind? And furthermore using violence to solve this crisis is pointless because this is a conflict stretching almost a thousand years now? If anything Shadow is only serving to help flame on the conflict between trolls and normal people! He's the real villain in all of this.

My God!

Antivehicular posted:

Yeah, the really remarkable thing to me about TGT (and apologies if I've mentioned this in the thread before, but I can't remember doing so) is that it's basically had the opposite development arc of Sonichu, the work to which it seems most often to be compared. While Sonichu went from kind of trying to have a plot to eventually having Chris-chan exposit over the gory murder of his real-world enemies, TGT started with the uncomfortable "um, lazerbot, having problems at school?" violent wish-fulfillment but has since developed a plot that is always reasonable and often compelling. (Indeed, as several others have mentioned, TGT actually suggests that the wish-fulfillment violence was the wrong answer, since Shadow's campaign has led to pretty much nothing but the deaths of his friends and allies.) Top it off by the fact that lazerbot seems to be a pretty reasonable dude with a sense of humor about himself, and I think this is honestly just a fun comic project for him and one that should be encouraged. At least, it doesn't give me that queasy "I am watching a human train wreck unfold in real time" feeling that later issues of Sonichu did, so that's something.

Yeah, at this point Sonichu comparisons are lazy as hell regardless of how you feel about the quality of the comic. Chris-chan is a broken human being whose half assed comic reflected that and was only humorous (even in the so bad it's good way) in relationship to him in most cases. Lazerbot seems like a weird but pretty cool dude, who even if your here only to laugh at how bad the comic is, has soon a genuine and earnest attempts at humor. The joke might be on him, but I'm not laughing at him like ED said...I'm laughing with him because of it. This comic might be a giantic failure, but it's an extremely charming one that's more clever and heart felt then it looks at first glance.
