Siteadmin page isn't loading graphs

I've tried checking the siteadmin recently to check my comic's stats, and I noticed that the statistical graphs aren't loading at all anymore. They haven't appeared for several days, even after logging in via different computers and using both Internet Explorer and Firefox. My apologies if there has...

I know that there have been comics out there featuring superheroes with ice-based powers (or made of ice, whatever). Mine is the only comic I know of that features a talking, crime-fighting popsicle as the main character. I mean, he's literally a giant, orange-flavored popsicle, complete with riddle...

Thinking about dark children's movies reminded me of The Neverending Story . Artax, fight the darkness of the swamp :(. Just so you know, the book is a million times better. I totally 100% recommend it. Also good are other translations of stuff Michael Ende wrote (and I would assume the original Ge...

Honestly, I don't know anything about it, nor did I make the claim that I did. I just say that stuff to irritate my friend. Also, the name of the movie suggests it to me. :) It's good to know, though, that my friend is sane--or at least as sane as people on the CG forum. ;) Ah, I see :wink: Yeah, i...

I got mad when they released "The Simpsons" season 6 in a package that looks like Homer's head, because it doesn't match the boxes for the other seasons. I still haven't bought it yet. Me too! They have to look alike or else it's just WRONG !!! Thought of something else. I have three different eras...

One of my friends insists that "The Last Unicorn" was a good movie. I never saw it, but it SOUNDS like it's about a girl, that's a princess, and also a ballerina and a pop star, and she makes friends with a rainbow-colored unicorn, etc, etc. Y'know, something my sister would've watched when she was...

I can pass off around non-geek company as an intelligent, mature, and responsible individual. Then I see a book and start babbling: "OMG that's a copy of The Last Unicorn, you've never heard of it well let me tell you all about the book and the movie adaptation and the copyright controversy" or "OMG...

Some stuff that bothers me about anime is that everyone talks too much. It's all too wordy when you hear it in english. Some animes aren't so annoying though when translated, like Cowboy Bebop and Fullmetal Alchemist. Despite the fact though, it's often better to watch them in their original format...

I'm hoping to celebrate my 'milestones' by posting 'cover art' for nonexistent Popsicleman comic books. Granted, these'll be parodies of bad cover art cliches, but they'll be nice to look at all the same :) I was going to do it every 25 comics, but since #25 will land in the middle of a story arc, I...

While I hate manga with a passion, I don't see any issue with non-Japanese artists and writers taking the art form and doing what they want with it. I still don't get why people have issues with that. I think the general gist of this conversation has been that there are way too many amateur webcomi...

That brings me to my biggest peeve. I don't understand why it is that all of these webnga-ka have chosen to copy the elements that they have, or, just as perplexing, discard the elements that they have. I'm going to snip very intelligent post for length. I have very little to add to that except thi...

Well, I came up with a bunch of taglines for banners and ads and stuff, but as for quotes:

"I'm not going anywhere without turbo boosters"
"Doomsday Device repair is a career path of EVIL!"
"Come back here, I'm not done denying you!"

and my personal favorite--

"Dastardly!"

i base this somewhat on how i've seen comics that have a parody and explain it at the bottom for the clueless. this clashes with my notion that if you have to explain a joke for the reader to understand it then it's a bad joke. That's a really good point. As in, the kind of point I'd print out and ...

Wow, this turned into quite the conversation. An enlightening one, to be sure, and all sides make valid points. I think, for me, balance is the key to everything. Extremes are rarely healthy. Be aware of what makes you happy in life, and find a way to give each its due. Don't wake up 30 years from n...

Recently in Off-topic there was a discussion about getting in over your head when it comes to a webcomic--when you create a story that seems to stretch off into the distant years as a drain of life, time and resources. It can be a pretty scary thing, and you risk burn-out or apathy when it comes to ...
