Episode 0 - Not funny. Episode 1 - I don't get it. But I usually like your sense of humor otherwise, so I hope it improves. A lot of paper comics that became classics were rough in the first few weeks. There's still hope.
"Web comics: Somebody with no sense of humor, who can't draw, typing IT buzzwords and video game trivia into speech balloons.
Aside from xkcd, web comics have no reason to exist. Please have the decency to kill this moronic thing."
Nonsense, although XKCD might be the best of the lot. Web-comics are awesome in that they are (to me at least) what the internet is all about. Anyone being able to reach a global audience with their message. In that capacity web-comics are so much more noble than "plz buy my v1a6r4."
Bad title. As in..I can't see it from work. I'll have to wait another 4 hours and try to remember to look at it form home, do to the completely twisted settings the IT person at our corporate office has set for out internet.
It tells me that the article is "games"
of course these are the same settings that told me "Craigslist.com" was porn.
But either way, I cant see the comic from here, adn Im very sad.
It's official, this site is stupid, now. There's just too much boring content. It's obviously just been added to have people clicking more and loading more ads out of some misguided sense of duty to absorb the kind of content we used to get here.
Your comic sucks - stick to what you're good at. I am not opposed to you doing whatever labors of love you enjoy, and I'm sure you'll get a few laughs eventually, but it's just shitting up this area, even more than it's already been polluted by every other new boring feature. Put it in a separate area.
Jack, no one is pushing you to come here see the oh so boring content. Personally, I did not like the comic, but I'll wait a few more turns before I file it under "crap". Chances are, it will get better in a few editions. As for the rest of the site, my only complaint is the color scheme.
On the other hand, I think it would be nicer not having the strip image displayed on the first page. This way, whoever doesn't like it may just ignore it, and it would also be better for people who access TDWTF from their workplaces.
I have seen how you replied to people's comments on the name change, but I will still venture my two cents. (I cant find the link, damn!!!, but of course it is your site and yours alone, no-one is questioning that)
I won't comment on how funny or unfunny the comics are , until I see quite a few.
But Alex, do you really need this?
I mean, the people who take the time come here, I doubt they are going to go away because you don't feature a comic. I for one, already get what I want here.
Don't you Americans have an expression about not fixing what is not broken?
I sure hope you wont be typing "New New New New New New Alex", a few months from now.
