Comics are too routine lately

Postby TFBrett on Fri Oct 22, 2004 11:22 pm

They're still quite funny - I'm just getting tired of Aram or Jeriah walking with Gamal and either a) being a complete jerk to the point of humor or b) whining and crying about stuff and it being funny.

It's to the point where it's horribly routine. I'd love to see Beriah doing something stupid, like the "Man, tomorrow's gonna be sweet!" comic or the scorpion on the face one. Or one with Ramath, because he was outright awesome.

You're quite the esteemed KeenSpot forum veteran, aren't you? If you think I'm a moron, I'd appreciate a reason why. Look at the last 10 comics. They're all the same bloody thing with different text.

I am going to be a sexy devil's advocate and agree with what's his face. All men in hats have been the same. I don't care that Aram is cruel. It isn't funny him being cruel for the sake of it.

But then, I am going to step several thousand pegs down and be on Psyonide's side because what's his jaw said "lol" and "heeheheheheh" and (lol)" again. If you're trying to be funny, I am ripping up the carpet from underneath you so it isn't funny and you're naked and dripping in the middle of the room. Now what are you going to do? You're naked and wet. What, run away? You'll slip and fall on your ass. Think fast.

Music plays...

""I thought I saw a man brought to life.
He was warm, he came around, and he was dignified.
He showed me what it was to try.
But you coulndn't that man I adored.
You don't seem to know seem to care
what your heart is for and I don't love him anymore.

It's nothing where, he used to lie, our conversation has run dry,
that's what going on, nothing's right my carpets torn.

I'm all out of faith, this is how I feel, I cold and I am scared
Lying naked on the floor...

I can agree that they have become a bit routine with the two of them walking and Aram telling Gamal about a new way of life or something, but sometimes routine is a good thing. Perhaps it will make the comic with Jeriah or Beriah all that much funnier because it will be such a surprise to see them. Either way, I still enjoy each comic, and will probably continue to for awhile.

I think the comic need more of me. Or some of me. Or any me whatsoever would be nice. :o

the characters of men in hats are who they are now. a little change would be good, like to see the sad clown guy, i forgot who that is, throw something at the asshole of the group would be funny, but not permanent, that would just be bad.

theyre good the way they are now

Naked and dripping, eh? This sounds like when I get out of the shower, except with people watching. I'm partially aroused, and partially insecure because dripping probably means cold water, and that my genitals are going to shrink. I suppose I'd probably just curl up into a ball. Anyways, more than anything, I WANT RAMATH TO MAKE A BLOODY APPEARANCE.

That's some real witty repartee there fella... it's so sharp you might just cut yourself on it, and we wouldn't want that now would we?

Sure, the comics are faling into a bit of a routine, but I don't see that as such a bad thing. Men in Hats was always good for two things: amusing social commentary, and left-field hilarity. Frankly, if we're primarily getting one over the other it doesn't bother me too much; we're still getting a good thing. I'd much rather have good, natural comics then forced slapstick.

The jackass comment was for signing up and making your first post equate to 'This comic doesn't please me as much as it used to, change it.'

Without constructive criticism, god only knows where this world would be.
I'm not asking for forced slapstick... I mean, the comics are still funny, but too much of a good thing = boring. MiH isn't getting worse, but it IS getting boring. Anyways, I'm only here for discussion. I know Aaron probably doesn't even read these forums, and if he did, that he didn't give 8% of a shit whether or not I'm still amused. So keep your asshole comments to yourself.

If anyone here bothered doing that, there would be very few posts in this forum. About 95% of the talk here is just flaming, and most of it is good natured... in one way or another.

I am here to say that men in hats isn't funny anymore. It is boring, yes, but at the same time I don't laugh. It used to be really good. Now the frowny clown comes in all the time to tell us how sad he is, and what's his face in the black comes in to say how he ruins lives and how religion is stupid. This isn't funny. This is like a webcomic where the creator makes a storyarc with the sole purpose to explain a character and add depth. But here, there is no depth. There is no reason. Yeah, the clown is sad, I got that in the beginning. He has a frown. You aren't using them for humour. The punchlines are just about the characters, but the characters aren't that funny.

Perhaps there is a reason for that. *shrug*. Any of you in a personal e-relationship with Aaron? Give him a shout out yo.

There is a difference between a routine and a concensus.

He's trying to fit in by being an arsehole? Just make a crack about cutting him in half with a chainsaw and fucking the holes, and we'll be back to normal.
