Dan you said that exact thing last time I posted an Adam Cadre link in like February! I was thinking of making a thread, actually, 'writers who are linked to on ilx by exactly one specific poster', like Morbs and Dennis Perrin would be the most famous example? I don't agree with AC about very much at all but there's something about the way he writes I keep coming back to!

I've been reading Allison's comics for a few years, really enjoying them, but had no idea about his thin skin until reading that essay (and its followup). I like this Cadre person -- he writes long sentences so I don't have to.

Haha the main interaction I found in the archives between Adam and me was me yelling at him to stop feeding a troll.

plus ça change...

I ... did not expect a webcomic reprint Kickstarter to exceed one million dollars.

Life is so much gentler and richer w/the hatin' coming on in dave cool levels of apoplexy. I appreciate the rastraint.

don't know what dave cool has against When I Am King and Pup but would enjoy engaging with his restrained analysis

Nhex, Monday, 20 February 2012 04:18 (seven years ago) link

I'm not too surprised by the Order of the Stick thing - people who remember D&D fondly are probably a pretty good demographic at this point, and it's managed to write a pretty epic storyline with jokes in every one of 600=-odd strips. They have an enormous and devoted forum/community - but then who doesn't?

Yeah, hooray for Kate Beaton.

Andrew Farrell, Friday, 22 June 2012 09:41 (seven years ago) link

Have you guys seen her give a reading? It's totally inimitable, she has this amazing tossed-off rapid fire Hepburn delivery.

Lewis Apparition (Jon Lewis), Friday, 22 June 2012 16:43 (seven years ago) link

It's comfort-food -- not quite junk food but definitely not haute -- but Bad Machinery really hits the spot for me. Love those kids. Allison is a pretty tight plotter.

Biff Wellington (WmC), Friday, 22 June 2012 16:48 (seven years ago) link

Bad Machinery is really good. I love the dialogue.

Mordy, Friday, 22 June 2012 16:58 (seven years ago) link

Yeah, Allison's stuff is great. Amazing how far he's come along, not that Bobbins was bad by any means, but his "kid's" material is so beyond it now.

Nhex, Friday, 22 June 2012 22:49 (seven years ago) link

two weeks pass...

i should really just start a thread for her

Mordy, Tuesday, 10 July 2012 01:47 (seven years ago) link

I really like the Hark! A Vagrants I've seen posted here. I'd never heard of Kate Beaton before.

bamcquern, Tuesday, 10 July 2012 03:25 (seven years ago) link

her comics are available on the web and most people probably know of her from the web but i dunno if it's really a webcomic other than by those two criteria.

Philip Nunez, Tuesday, 10 July 2012 03:31 (seven years ago) link

i thought all of her comics originate on the web? what else would the definition be?

Mordy, Tuesday, 10 July 2012 03:42 (seven years ago) link

i kno lolwiki but the first line of her wiki page is "Kate Beaton (born September 8, 1983) is a Canadian webcomic artist."

Mordy, Tuesday, 10 July 2012 03:43 (seven years ago) link

well at some point garfield will also fit those criteria, too, so there needs to be something else.

Philip Nunez, Tuesday, 10 July 2012 03:46 (seven years ago) link

Godddddd I love Mystery Solving Teens.

Nhex, Tuesday, 10 July 2012 23:26 (seven years ago) link

i have an easier time thinking of garfield as a webcomic than hark a vagrant to be honest.

Philip Nunez, Wednesday, 11 July 2012 00:23 (seven years ago) link

I love Kate's reading of this one.

All of her comics created for the web seems kind of a crucial distinction from Garfield.

Andrew Farrell, Wednesday, 11 July 2012 07:36 (seven years ago) link

I mean, as webcomics go.

Andrew Farrell, Wednesday, 11 July 2012 07:38 (seven years ago) link

fit and working again, Wednesday, 11 July 2012 13:46 (seven years ago) link

i was looking for examples of really good webcomics a few years before, and really couldn't find any. I thought perry bible fellowship and hark a vagrant would fit the bill, but it turned out both comics had been published in print before putting stuff on the web, and it seemed like the web being the primary delivery vehicle for the comics is just an economic decision rather than an aesthetic one.
