Two Comic Updates

I'm just popping in to note that there are two great comics which just issued rare updates, and you should know about both of them.

The first is Moe, a comic I love that has not managed to break into the realm of superpopular webcomics, but it is still great! The newest comic just came out, and it's the first update we've had since August (and that, in turn, was the first update since May). Anyway, go, enjoy it, tell the author how much you love it, read the archives if you haven't yet, etc. Or you can read an interview with the author I did on that website I used to run.

The other comic to do much the same is Achewood, which is in fact extremely popular, but had apparently become too much for its author to keep up with, which is why he didn't post any new comics for nearly nine months. But now he has! Is it a sign of things to come? Goodness I hope so. I hope he can at least finish this story. He wouldn't start a story and not finish it, right? RIGHT?

Comics: they're the best.

  6. I'm so confused.

    Who's Carl?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Moe is awesome.

    Anon 8:19 is just slow.

    He'll be laughing tomorrow.

  8. I hate Achewood. Like, a lot. Is it just me?

    ReplyDelete
  9. 11:16, it's something that's terrible and unfunny until you read a lot of it from the start, where it becomes hilarious. like an acquired taste

    "we can call him michael" is monkeycheese humour though. i'm disappointed

  10. the weak point of just about every long-running comic: eventually you get to the point where people just can't be bothered to read the archives.

    ReplyDelete
  11. It's not just you. Achewood is fucking dire.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I thought almost all online comics were shit but we focus on xkcd because it is the most self-congratulatory and gets the most undeserved amount of attention.

    mostofeverythingsucks.blogspot.com would just take up too much time and Rob already invests a heavy proportion of himself on this site.

  13. 12:02/03, that sounds like "WE'RE KINDA LIKE A GANG UNITED BY OUR FOLLOWING OF THIS STRIP AND THE HUMOROUS THEMES DEVELOPED THEREIN" which is one step away from "THE JOKE IS FUNNY YOU JUST HAVE TO READ THE 50 PAGE EXPLANATION" which is gay.

    Assuming an intelligent audience, meaninglessness (or "quirkiness") out of context betrays an author lacking in technical skill. I can pick up any good creative work from a scientific paper in my field to a piece of classical fiction and gain some appreciation from a randomly selected paragraph or illustration. There is no part lacking in substance - hard as it may be to discern - and there is no part lacking in style.

    In conclusion, niggers amirite?

  14. Carl get out of here no one loves you

    ReplyDelete
  15. @Noone, I've met niggers brighter than you are funny.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've sat on molecules bigger than your dick.

    ReplyDelete
  17. @Noone I think your name should be "no one." You know because noone looks stupid. Although it's fitting I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Carl you fail at life.

    Steve I guess you fail at Encyclopedia Dramatica, which isn't that bad I guess.

    Achewood you fail at getting me to read you, because I only smiled once in the first fifty or so strips and even though you look like you might get more interesting later on, you're really ugly and your site is really ugly and FUCK that subscriber content noise man.

    Moe you're okay.

    Rob you're fat.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Does anybody know where I can find a video of a little girl interviewing a butt?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wait, wait. You don't like xkcd, but... you DO like Achewood?

  25. are you saying you are a homo

  26. Wait, wait. You have good taste?

  27. >implying achewood or any other shitty webcomic save for Hark a Vagrant and Chainsawsuit is even worth looking at, let alone reading

    OP is epic fail

    ReplyDelete
  28. Disappointing post.

    1st: Fuck-OFF you advertizing drone, carl.

    2nd: I don't care that you like webcomics. We're here because we hate XKCD. We all like stuff (well, some of us do), but NO ONE cares about the other shit we do like.

    I wouldn't post the link to the site an indie game I like, or the toothpaste I use.

    3rd: Get bent you retarded marketing swine.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have never understood your fascination with achewood, carl. I read about 300 comics and... I still wasn't enjoying it more than the occasional "okay, heh". I don't really think the "point of appreciation" should be higher than 300 comics, if it exists and you are not in fact delusional. =\

    But then again, I don't own two websites about webcomicking, so what do I know (nothing, that is what).

    also i'm pretty sure anon411 is like 8 y.o., so he knows even less than me (I think I could convince you I am at least 16 maybe?)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hark A Vagrant is rubbish too.

    ReplyDelete
  31. what about pbf - a comic that's actually good that's also updated recently, a rare occurrence.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Remember when this place used to be full of intelligent lively discussion?


    Yeah ... me neither ...

    ReplyDelete
  33. You know what I hate? I hate when people try to pretend like they're educated and intelligent by referring to Schrodinger's Cat, as if every newfag and his grandma hasn't heard of it. And to make it worse, they usually don't really even know what it means, or that Schrodinger was being facetious when he came up with it.

    hay guis theirs this cat thats alive n dead @ THE SAME TIME ololol im smrt E=mc²

  34. Since when did bashing Carl because he praised a comic become okay?

    I don't think it's okay.

    In all seriousness, I welcome a little positivity. So Carl, thanks for posting. Let's all give a shout-out to our favourite comics.

    My favourites? Gunnerkrigg Court, The Meek and Dr McNinja are all up there. But personally I can't give enough praise to Everblue for it's lovable characters, beautiful artwork and the start of a great storyline. I think more people should know about it.

  35. Raven, Achewood has an almost exclusively male audience for some reason. You don't like it because your hormones are all wrong.

  36. @That's what she said

    You meant E=(∆m)c^2

  37. Who's "That's what she said"?

  39. i'm male and achewood sucks. it's not clever and it's not funny.

  40. Kitten, I'm working on getting those fixed =[

  41. Jon Levi, I know it's bad form to ask when you've already started, but... do you spit or swallow?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hitler was a great dude, I'm glad Randy agrees

    ReplyDelete
  43. You are clearly not man enough for Achewood, 3:42. At least Raven is man enough to admit it.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Man now I want to talk about webcomics but this place is too retarded for that and webcomics.me is too retarded for ANYTHING.

    And Jon Levi saying anything good about Carl, ever, is socially unacceptable.

  45. RE: 983

    There's a reason why we don't let dumb shit undergrads into labs and accelerator tunnels without adult supervision.Those rooms just aren't left unlocked. And I know you worked at NASA for a summer but if you're an undergraduate student (and you probably are if you live in a dorm with a roommate)then there's no way in hell you should be calling yourself a scientist.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I tried reading Achewood once and I didn't understand why people jerked off over it. The art is shit and the guy fits entire fucking paragraphs into a speech bubble.

    ReplyDelete
  47. ian, you realise literally everyone who likes it started out with the impression that it was an overrated piece of shit

    it is pretty hard to get into and i feel like a massive hipster whenever i try to explain it. it's weird

    ReplyDelete
  48. it's not hard to explain, R, you just have to link them to this wikipedia article

    ReplyDelete
  49. rob, isn't that how you get women to love you

    ReplyDelete
  50. isn't that how everyone does it

    ReplyDelete
  51. what i am saying is you are basically a fat jabba the hut

    ReplyDelete
  52. Carl: your website is broken. Seems strange to name it "loleveryonewillthinkiamreallycarl", honestly, but who am I to judge?
