Sex & Violence?

Postby Aaron M. Holm, esquire on Mon Nov 25, 2002 7:15 am

Hey, Campers.

Allow me to bounce a little poser off you that's been gnawing at me for more than a few months now. I could use some fresh opinions on the matter.

Here's the Sitch...

I'm thinking of changing the strip's title.

Don't misunderstand this as any real dramatic change or anything. It's simply a matter of correcting an indirect mistake that this title caused from day one.

When I first started the strip, I originally was going to call it "Unit: Ajax," but I decided that was an awful title, and instead opted for something that would catch the eye of the browsing new reader and posibly draw them in.

I now realize that this was a big mistake, as it leads a lot of people in with the wrong idea about the strip. S&V isn't, wasn't, and never will be a full-fledged porn comic. I'm sick to death of getting e-mail gripes from 14-year-olds who piss and moan about how there's not enough sex in the strip, as if S&V is some sort of jerk-off material. Yes, there's occasional nudity, but it's never actual been a high-focus part of the strip, and I fear that the title is to blame for misleading a lot of people into thinking that it was.

So, I'm thinking of changing it. I realize that, by doing so, I'm throwing away a lot of name association and those blessed few people who actually link to my site would have to change their link names, but I feel like it's a step in the right direction.

Still... I'd like to get you guys' opinion on the matter. What do you guys think?
Mr. Holm is personally responsible for the quality of his comics. If you and your friends aren't completely and utterly entertained by any of his comics, it may result in his being booted from Keenspot. This will dishonor his family, which he can only restore by taking his own life with a sword.

I like the title. It really don't matter to me if u change it thou. I am sure the material will stay the same. I would get tired of the same old emails. If u change the title my link will be fine (http://www.mrbang.net). I seen more sex in Joe then S&V. If u want to change the title how about Bang, Agent Bang, or The Bang. Bang has alot of violent over tones and a little hint at sex(Yes I am male), and would go well with your url. It would still catch the eye of the browsing new reader. Gives kind of the feel of old school comics as well with wham, pow, bang, etc etc .. Little label here a little label there of Mr.bang. I would stay away from Gang bang thou hehehehehe. What really caught my eye was Ajax pic on keen which is very unique. I never really thought of S&V as porn(hmmmmmp I must be getting old). "Hahahahaha :cry: " Thx for the wall paper.
Is it me or did some posts get lost?

Hell, just call it S&V. Sex & Violence is a good title I personally think. Who ever said titles had to have anything to do with material anyways. Theres plenty of titles of many different things all over time that have little to nothing to with what they are about. Anyways, a name change wouldn't really matter to me. Its your strip after all. Do what you need to do. As for the dumbasses who send emails, if you are reading this, get a life. If you want porn, its not hard to find it on the internet. And just because something has the word Sex in the title doesn't mean thats what its even about.

I'm not entirely sold on the title. It make me unable to read from work (granted, probably shouldn't read whatever the title, due to content), but that's just me. It does work, but...

Heck, yeah, why not call it Mr. Bang? That's fun!

Well since you're asking I say you should change it, if for no other reason as it might cut down on your gripe emails. 'Mr Bang' is ok except Ajax isn't a mister :) I'd go with 'Bang' ... which doesn't seem too close to 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang' by CrossGen. Maybe 'Bang you Dead.'

Whatever you decide works for me.

S&V does have a nice ring to it. Then the 14 year olds can ask what it means, and feel cool once they know.

Naming a comic Sex and Violence, and then loading it with Violence and a couple pairs of jugs -IS- a bit misleading on the name though.

Personally, I just checked the comic out cause it was on the keenspot listing, the little picture looked like it had some good art, and the title was just catchy.

Personally, I'd stop worrying about the title until you get back on a full fledged track. Then the title change should come into effect, but thats just my own personal opinion.

TIM is a step further. He's completely lost his mind after the SuperGreg arc and proceeds to insert himself into the comic with the goal to kill absolutely anything that moves, as it might become a secondary cast member if he leaves it alone too long.

Sooooooo...

You gave "Sex" top billing, despite the fact that there was none, and you were galled to find out that pr0n hunters were calling you on your false advertising?

I'm surprised that you were surprised.

Since you are starting over after a multi-year hiatus, this might be the time to either (1) change the name, oh, please, please, please, change the fricken name, or (2) start putting enough sex in the comic to justify it appearing first in the title ahead of Violence.

I think the first is more appropriate, but I wouldn't mind the second just to hear the collective sphincter puckering from half of the Keenspot cartoonists as they realize that, for the first time since LWIBH died, there is a naughty comic in their midst. (And sex isn't funny, dammit!!!) 8)

Change the title of the comic?


Excuse me, but that is....


Herasy!



Leave it the way it is. I think the comic is great just the way it is. (But I still wouldn't mind a few good glimpses of Ajax's thong everynow and then.) :wink:

I know I'm pretty late in posting, but I just wanted to add that the only time the title is really a problem to me is when I mention it to my friends. e.g. "I love Sex and Violence!"
