so how are the wickedpowered pageviews going, chris?
in a unrelated (both to the topic and to the forum) matter, how is your brother's 'last blood' comic going? did it gain a pupkin-type following already?

157,000 pageviews in three weeks. Not too bad for an adver-comic in its first three weeks.

Not as big as PUPKIN yet, no, but it's only been two weeks. Still, I don't see it getting that popular as a webcomic, just because there's no history of popular webcomics of the type (horror).

well if it's going to imitate (no, not parody) retarded media, it should go all the way, no?

Enjoying this comic so far. The transgender twist was somewhat surprising, but I'm not one to complain.

My $.02 worth

Postby Bigdog on Mon Mar 12, 2007 1:00 pm

I don't usually post in these forums, but after reading this strip through today, I felt strangely compelled (to do what, I'm still not sure).

Anyway, when I started reading the first 10 or so strips, I thought it was pretty awful. The artwork is great, but the dialog was so stupid that I almost decided the hell with it. But I kept on (like I said, I liked the artwork :wink: ), and finished up with todays strip. Now that I know the same folks behind Sorethumbs are doing this one, I think I'll stay with it for awhile and see how it develops. But I like the way the story is going, and the transgender part is interesting (I'm also a fan of El Goonish Shive). But I still think the dialog could use more work (I mean, are all the characters brain dead or what?

The characters aren't all brain-dead, they're just written that way.

There's a subtle difference!

Today's strip reminds me alot of Star Wars....

And yeah, I'm in agree-ance with Bigdog here, about the dialog for these characters. The main character, Schlub, he's okay in terms of what he's got to say here and there. But the girls, enemies, and rivals all need some work?

I don't know what the aim is in making WickedPower comics, whether it'd be for young readers or simple poking fun for the artist, but it is getting to be confusing. Because here I am weighing the quality of Sorethumbs vs Wickedpower...

I also like the artwork as well. And some months ago I began picking up on El Goonish Shive (parts of this comic tend to be confusing.... Random scene jump from fantasy to the "real world").

But read on I shall. Have to know what happens next. I mean, didn't the robots surrender? Why are they being discombobulated left to right? Too dumb to run away?

TIME PARADOX
This can't really be Wiley, can it? He obviously never got around to actually becoming that hero, now - and if she's, right now, going to start at that, why will the future remember her as a man?

I'm afraid of reading the WICKEDPOWER comic now. Especially after viewing the recent strip for Sore Thumbs. Send help!

Edit: So, all of Wiley's time traveling around and messing with the past has now resulted in a change where he exists in the Sore Thumbs realm? Will we be seeing the other characters too? (Dandies, girls, mom & dad versions of Wiley, etc, etc..)
