MitDoP April 19th

I like it - very funny, and VERY scary - although I do kind of miss the big multi-panel ones =)


Still don't like the sluggy forumites.

actually, i'm starting to find the sluggites pretty funny. there were a lot of posts trashing today's MitDoP - then someone pointed out that it was actually drawn by the great pete, himself.

it's all very well to appreciate the efforts of a cartoonist - but it's kinda sad when fans of one cartoonist can't even try to appreciate another on his own merits. i actually kind of enjoy things like the april fool's crossovers, when one artist tries to do another's strip - for one thing, it seems to me a sign of respect, and for another, it's kind of interesting to see someone else's take on the same material.

(and as to my comment - i think the spelunking is taking things a bit too far - but it _is_ quite a lovely monster.)

Look on the bright side. The people who are too close-minded to appreciate Ian just because he's not Pete aren't bringing their closed-mindedness here. =P

True =)

By the way, out of curiousity, why didn't Ian do today's MitDoP?

Incidentally, I'm wondering if Pete drew today's himself just to see if anyone would notice. I have to admit I didn't notice it at first, but looking at it again, it's pretty obvious even *without* the signature.

Also, am I the only one wondering what's going to happen when we get close to Halloween? =P

Aye, they are amusing, but I wouldn't want to talk to some of them.

Don't get me wrong, there are several reasonable, probably quite likable people there. But I never liked conflict...

I still remember a few years ago when they pulled that switch on the newspaper comics... I felt really bad for Kevin Fagan, who draws "Drabble" (one of my favorite newspaper comics). He couldn't get anyone to switch with him, so he drew his comic left-handed.

Oddly, that's the first one I didn't like.

I've never really felt the urge to hang around on the Sluggy forum either, despite it being for a very long time, my favourite webcomic (and its still the first one I look at in the morning). But then I think is a matter of scale.

The really popular comics tend to have forums that are just too busy for me to keep up with. I my opion the ideal forums are ones where you can get to know everyone, and the comic inspires like minded readers who will give you a warm welcome and a decent conversation...

Yeah, and as for confrontational posters, I tend to find more often than not that if you draw a vast crowd you are going to get get a noisy minority who make trouble? To me explains why cartoonists like Scott Kurts of PvP (who strikes me as reasonable enough person) can draw such levels of controversy?

agreed - especially about the conversation. that's one thing that throws me about the sluggy forums - the insistance on staying on topic, and having threads reserved only for 'reactions', with no speculation allowed. speculating about what's going to happen, or why things are happening, or what the real meaning of what did happen was, and how today's strip fits in with all of that to me is the real reason for having a forum. and i have learned a _lot_ of things from threads that wander off-topic.

we're not small - we're elite!

Agreed. College Roomies From HEll manages this despite the huge numbers of posts. Sluggy Freelance does not.
