It's been fun! So long!

Postby Braidboy on Mon Jun 09, 2008 7:51 am

And with that I'm out. Godmode has been very fun. There's been a lot of support and positive feedback to my run and I'm thankful for that. Anyways it's always been most important to me to work on my own projects so that's what I'm off to do next. You can keep up with me at http://www.ravensdojo.com as always.

Thanks all. Cheers! :rootbeer:

P.S. Crosby is going to continue the strip as far as I know. So your next artist should be along shortly.

Am I the only one who’s thrilled, or just the only one tasteless enough to say it?
I have hated roughly 90% of Raven’s run, I dropped to only checking once a week or less to see if there was anything worthwhile. I know Raven can do good stuff, the few strips that I have liked in the last year, I have loved. But most of it has been utter shit compared to the original.
Eagerly await the next incarnation, hope it finds a better balance.

KeenGuy: Nah, it's okay to be thrilled. It can only go uphill from here. I'll be the first to admit I wasn't even close to doing my best. Godmode has been a struggle from beginning to end for me and that was part of my decision to just move on. If I can't do it right, why do it at all?

Personally I am eager to see the new guy too. Ryan knew the kind of strip I'd make because we'd known each other for a long time, but the new guy is a complete wild card to me. We'll see.

For those who didn't enjoy my run, I'm Sorry. I hope you stick with Godmode.

For those who enjoyed the strip, Thank you. I hope you stick with Godmode.

I've been a longtime God Mode reader, but just now decided to sign up for the forums here. Just wanted to say thanks Raven for the great comics and I'm looking forward to seeing whoever continues the art.

As for the quality of the comics, I actually enjoyed the more unpolished look and feel of Raven's works here. Granted, they're not ultra-detailed masterpieces; but that's not why I come to God Mode. I come for the great humor mixed with whitty presentation, and so far I haven't been let down in the slightest.

The art? Wait, I’m confused, Crosby doesn’t write the actual scripts, does he? I thought that( contrary to the original plan) he was only responsible for creating the characters and managing the general direction of the strip.

Meh. I never got into it, and Raven can do better. I don’t read strips purely for the drawing style either, and I still felt this run turned out poorly except for a few gems.

I don’t think Raven is responsible for that:

Nah. Godmode has ALWAYS belonged to Chris Crosby. He made the concept and the characters. It's all him.

Now the writing and the art were the product of Ryan (on his run) or me (on mine). So the look and stories came from us. Now that I'm off the book, Crosby is taking care of keeping his strip alive however he decides. I really have no clue and am not involved in the decisions from here on out. When Ryan left, he recommended me and that's how I got the gig, but since I don't really have anyone to recommend it's all Crosby's call.

So funny you should mention that. I'm most disappointed I did nothing with Tom. I really wanted to work the milf angle for some comedy. Ah well.

Anyway I'd be happy to whip up a wall paper or something. I was toying with the notion of a commemorative pic or something, but why not make it wall paper?

On the high res comic... I'm not sure if that's okay. Crosby may or may not care. I'll ask him and see what he says.
