I remember wondering once if I just hated all gaming comics (I don't count MacHall/TPS or TGSA as "gaming comics"). I somehow forgot about one little comic that's been in my comics-I-occaisionally-check list: Awkward Zombie
. Perhaps it's just that she does more older/Nintendo games (and thus, I have actually played more of them), but for whatever reason I like this one a lot more.
Edit: After reading a few more of these, I think it's the commentary. Tiedrich's commentary is great.
Edit: This weekend, I wasted a lot of time reading webcomics (as alluded to in Confessions); most of them bad. Inhuman
, however, was a surprisingly good one. I've liked the style of the artist in other things, as well, but this actually seems to have good plot to go along with it. Girl and Triangle
was also interesting, however strange (and short).
So today I check on the website for Winter, which I occaisionally do even though the last update was several years ago. Imagine my surprise when it brought me to Blank It
On the one hand, it's good to see more stuff by Lem. I like his style; nothing too
special most of the time, but a good casual feel. And this new comic is funny. Well, sometimes.
On the other hand.... I wanna see Winter, dangit. That was such a damn good story, the sketchy style Lem drew it in was awesome and fit the tone of it very well, I thought. All of his newer stuff has a more Penny Arcade/old MacHall kinda style artwise, which isn't bad
, but I miss Winter. And this "starting with a blank, empty area" premise thing feels a little similar to Tailsteak's 1/0
, and so far, Tailsteak did it better, even with less-refined artistic skill.
But it's new; I'll certainly give it a chance. It has it's moments already, after all (the very first one I do rather like). And Lem mentioned there's apparently some kind of surprise or something in store for Winter fans, so I dunno, maybe it'll be good. The About Page
is at the very least awesome.
