1) Yes and I'm moonlighting this comic on the side. I always can't wait to get home to do it and then this stuff happens.

2) No, I live with my family.

3) I have to pay rent for living in my parent's house because I'm not going to college just yet. I've been setting aside all extra moolah for this comic.

Alright, and I wanna be clear this is the realest advice I've said in this thread so if you take just one of my posts seriously place make it this one.

Go to college, go to an arts college and learn the fundamentals, learn a valuable art skill so that, if things don't work out with this, you can have a career path to fall back on that while not as 100% satisfying as making a living on a webcomic would be, would allow you to be creative for money. Go to college, move there, live a life on your own and most importantly get therapy. You have to backburner this comic idea for a while. Take one year, one year off learning and working on yourself. and see what changes.

"And the fucking pants. Goddammit, the fucking pants. again. If there is anyone on this planet who likes those fucking pants other than you 3 people, they’re probably 5 years old and laugh at anything random."

Thanks to Queen Elizatits for leeting me know I late to my own drama.

Hello E/N, I'm TheOnlyStarFish and I am the artist that SpoonfulofBromide is talking about. I've only read up to page 4 of this thread, and I just can't keep up when people keep editing their post. Sorry.

But I'm here to defend my good name! I'm not going to go into too much detail because I think Spoonful needs professional help and posting all the interactions would be cruel.

Spoonful wanted to launch his comic off the back of a bunch of Drama he had started with some other better know web comic artist. He faked being a trans woman who was obsessed with, the now dead, comic 'Shredded Moose.' He sent crazy tumblr messages to some comic book artist about how Shredded Moose was taken down by a SJW-conspiracy. Proof Spoonful let me in that this was all a joke but now I think its just how he really feels about things.

I told Spoonful to drop the drama bit, and just to start fresh. He agreed but still remained OBSESSED WITH SHREDDED MOOSE. For a few days things were fine, I agreed to do the comic for $25 a comic and 50% of any money that was made off the comic. That isn't A LOT but I thought it could be a cute project to do between other things and could help me network with more people. (something I'm terrible at)

Spoon would chit chat with me a bit (Too much sometimes thought) about the concept for the comic, and I didn't mind. Then would talk day to day things, and I could see my 19 year old self in Spoonful with how dramatic he could be. So I tried to give some advice I wish I would have gotten when I was 19 and very over the top with my emotions. Like I said earlier, I was doing this more to network and make friends with in the web comic world.

This all came to a head Yesterday when Spoonful wanted me to contact the artist behind Shredded Moose, Brian Krumm. I'm still 100% sure what he want to talk about, but he keep saying the Brian wouldn't believe him and would believe me, because I have a professional presence online. But I put my foot down and told Spoonful he need to put on his big boy pants and do this himself. And if Brian turned him down he need to get over it. I don't like contacting people on behalf of myself, there is no way I'm doing it for anyone else.

Spoonful keep switching between being REALLY PUSHY and saying OVERLY DRAMATIC THINGS, some of which you've seen here. I told him he was making me uncomfortable and just to drop it. He said he knew I would block him and leave him like everyone did. Then I told him yes, I was going to. But before I left, I told him to get help.

I never made ANY MONEY from Spoonful, and I drew one little piece of art. He never once sent me a REAL SCRIPT even though he said he had written hundreds.

Um...so how do we know when reading the cartoon that transwoman is trans? Does she have a crotch bulge and five o'clock shadow? Is she wearing a name tag that says "Hello, I am trans" ?

If you made the straightman (as in the cuntvalet-pointed-out comedic straightman) a woman, you could call the strip Transel and Gretel

Why do you think I'm doing a trans blackface here? I greatly respect trans people since I suffer the same thing they do. There's nothing obvious or subtle to indicate she's trans, she's a woman just like the rest of the population. What's wrong with that? That's how I'd like to feel but no, it's rocky horror ville.
