Comics

Posted by Peach 00 , in BZP, Review(s) Dec 04 2011 · 38 views

Okay, I decided I'd take a look inside the proclaimed 'awesome' forums by so many comic makers alike, and viewed a few of the 'great' comics. I had gone there on the old forums, and looking at them now, they still aren't all that funny. No personal offense to the artists themselves, but I'm going to go on a rant about them and point out what I saw and the flaws.

First, after looking at one artist who will go unnamed, I saw the comics and took a look at the first one. Of course, it was just an introduction to the PGS characters, so it wasn't supposed to be funny, I guess. But I looked at the next few comics, and I still didn't see it all that funny.

So, let me tell you why: There's no wit. Wit. Yes, most of you might have heard of it. When making a comic, short or long, the potential subject should at least carry out a witty form of banter with characters, a subject that can produce interesting discussion between characters, when it might finally lead to a humorous end. Or, at least a similar comic type to that.

So, next, I took at somebody else's comics who is named as a genius among the comic-maker community. After looking, not all that much of a genius. The comics have some funny points, but not laugh out loud funny. I viewed the first five comics and I wasn't impressed.

...

Okay, well this wasn't all that long of a rant, but that's a miniaturized version of what I first intended to rant about. But, nonetheless, a rant.

IMO it's hard to write comedy mainly because the who write the comedy have no way of knowing if their joke is going to be funny. The most important thing to remember when view the comics and comedies (comedies were originally stories that just ended happily hence why The Divine Comedy isn't funny) is Sturgeon's law which says 90% of everything is crud or trash (in the epics Peach 00 you're part the 10% worth dying for). Wow that was a long comment.

I haven't been in there in a year, probably. The one third of the Library I don't check. >_>

Well, for most of it, it depends on the delivery of the jokes. I can't exactly draw a perfect example of where jokes were delivered at the right time, but it can be done. It just takes some time and practice, and if the joke is funny or not is a matter of preference. People are attuned to different things and have different tastes, which is a situation with comedies and comics, so although others might like it, I might not.

But you have a point, almost the 100% aren't exactly great, although some are the exception (hence the 10% of some parts of the Library, art, comics, etc.) . And thanks, I'm very flattered. =)

The problem here is that I don't believe I was around for that time period. :P

Heh, good one. If I were to read your comics, I have a feeling I'd still like your stories better for some reason. =P
