That hit close to home. I actually had to hold a mini-intervention for NJ to get her to stop redrawing the earlier chapters of Undead Friend.

I'll keep that in my pocket for the next time she has a relapse.

It's definitely a dangerous thing for a webcomic to do. Back when I did my own early-mid-2000s webcomic I couldn't help but try the same thing..my early art was just so ugly (my later art was ugly too, of course...just not quite as ugly) and it was one of the reasons for the eventual collapse of my update schedule.

The only reason I let her go back to redo ch 1 and 2 was because she had several months of buffer at the time and we had come up with some ideas we wanted to insert into those early chapters (and we wanted to add the prologue pages).

Octopie has reached the Jane and marigold part of its author commentary reruns. Nice to get the authors perspective on a storyline that came over very hackneyed to me at the time. I still donít think itís particularly good but I definitely have a bit more appreciation for it now

I've loved the commentary from octopus pie but at the same time i feel kind of bad i never put anywhere near the level of thought into all the interactions that the author put in and sometimes agonized over

Probably not helped that I would frequently forget who some of these characters were

Doomsday My Dear rules, I reread/caught up this year after about two years and itís always cool to see it constantly improving. You all should check it out if you enjoy things that are extremely topical.

Oh. Huh. It's clever, but I can't help but immediately reinterpret the page "in context" and feel the confusion and bitterness of any reader who didn't happen to see the missing page as it uploaded. I hope it's somehow pieced together again for future readers, but now we're all warned there's going to be time shenanigans so we can start saving copies of pages lol. I'm betting this is just the start of the clusterfuck.

All in all the 'actually delete old pages to represent changing the past' gimmick feels more distracting than immersive. The earlier, subtle changes to the first chapter were more firmly in the "good idea" side of the spectrum.

You can go back, the only major revision was the last page, as far as I know. The latest page, episode 250, was previously Hannah killing Nina, which prompted her brother to use his up-till-now unused power of exploding. It didn't seem to kill Hannah, but it did take big chunks out of her -- which is why the upper Hanner here is missing a second arm and a chunk of her torso.

e: oh yeah 249 didn't previously have a second Hannah hand in the final panel

There were a lot of great moments in the lost page and a half, now that I think of it.

Hannah lashing out at Nina and immediately looking shocked what she'd done. A melancholy beat where shreds of Nina that look like flower pedals scatter and drift away. Theo just absolutely losing his last drop of hope for his sister as she rambles about how she'll fix it. The surprising amount of rage he shows as he starts to explode. The world splitting in two as Hannah escapes to space. C-beams glittering in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.


We'll see what the author does with the archive when this is all over, bud drat, you don't want it to be the case that during such a huge dramatic moment in your story people have to say "this is a really bad time to catch up with the comic".

Vote shit sandwich or the shit sandwich gets it!


Friends, I need your help in tracking down a webcomic I read... Probably like a decade and a half ago, if not more.

It was called As If! and it detailed the daily lives of several friends in high school. The website that had hosted the comic, asifcomic.com, is currently occupied by... Some Japanese company, apparently? I don't even know.

Through googling I found out that the comic archive was apparently moved like 14 years ago to a new website (as detailed a forum I found through the search), but the details of the new site are apparently lost to time. Those forums seem to be dead, too, since the last post in the As If! section is nearly a decade old, and the last post overall is more than a year old. So that's a dead end, too.

Any help?

I am consistently impressed by Minna Sundberg's ability to churn out excellent art for a daily webcomic in Stand Still Stay Silent. I have no idea how she does it, though she does take breaks between chapters.

WEIRD LOOKIN' DICK

My main Webcomic likes lately have been Mr Boop, which I think the BYOB webcomic thread noticed a while back, and Red Ring of Death, which is yet another parody of mid-2000s gamer comics (like Powerup Comics was) but has the advantage of hindsight on how gamer culture developed and also makes good use of the Twitter medium to flesh out the backstory of "Shawn Tuckley", the comic's creator.



Basically it's a spoof of the sort of person who does comics like this.

Does anyone remember a webcomic that starts off about Lion Man, a guy whose family was killed by lions and who has dedicated himself to fighting them. The world runs on video game logic, and there's a strip early on where he can't sell his lion crystals because the people are impoverished by famine. He realizes that not all problems are caused by lions? Later he meets the dig dug guy, but the dig dug guy has diabetes because he survived being trapped in a cave in by eating tea cakes and soda from an infinitely generating vending machine. The second arc of the comic took place in dracula's castle.
