I think it's hilarious. Yesterday's strip was on the money about manga. I can't understand why people study and work hard on making their art look like everyone else's. Anyway, keep up the damn fine work.<P>Peace.

I think it's a bit of a novelty idea, personally...<P>I'm ready for Mofo and Sagi to come back.

Bah, say what ever ya want to say guys. If people get upset or offended, good, let 'em go, they ain't worth it anyway. Ya gots ta say what ya feel, to hell with bein' nice about everything. <P>I agree about the Manga thing. While I do enjoy Blade of the Immortal, Inu Yasha, What's Michael, and Hayao Miyazaki movies, most of the rest of Manga and anime is just copy-cat garbage.<P>Bitch Hell Ass

After a few more days of reading:<P>I think it's funny, but I think it also sort of lessens what you're doing with your comic. It may be a bit hard to explain, but diving into an injoke mockfest this early on could very well alienate readers that are hitting your strip for the first time. A lot of people may not bother to read anything beyond your comments about your own little version of geekland.<P>"I don't care," you say. but if that were true, you wouldn't be doing a comic to begin with.<P>That said, I truly dig the Hell out of your strip. Keep it up.<P>------------------

I think the "How to make your own webcomic" is hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing. I wanted to piss in my pants when I saw you use the stupid assorted brushes from photoshop. At least someone is using them. =)
You guys are doing an awesome job.<P>XOXOXO

I've just taken a look at the series. People who like that sort of stuff should look at my <A HREF="http://www.rocr.net/t4lb/index.html" TARGET=_blank>Tips For Lazy Buggers</A> which makes some of the same points, and some different ones, about comics in general.<P>

Thanks for all the kind words, folks. We're still new at this, and still figuring out how to properly pace the storylines and special strips and whatnot. The How-To series, though we understood might be a bit lame for those who aren't familiar with the webcomic community as a whole, was run at a very convenient time for us; we had no choice but to go with it now. Basically, it was that or nothing. And we'd rather give you all <B>something</B> than nothing. Don't worry, though: we are now returning to our regularly-scheduled programming. We've got some really fun stuff coming up, and I think you'll all really dig it.<P>------------------

Don't feel guilty, I thank you! It was really bad, I've had a massive redesign and it has really helped it, I've actually got some humour in it now (I think). Your comic is excellent, I've recommended it to loads of people.<P>------------------
