* Tropers/MathsAngelicVersion: While ''Webcomic/VeganArtbook'' is... [[Horrible/{{Webcomics}} not exactly a masterpiece]] anyway, the absolute worst it has to offer is [[http://archive.is/ISSXK this comic]]. It opens with portraying a blatantly strawmanned farmer who brags about e.g. killing animals for money before claiming that he treats his animals like family. There's no attempt to show that many farmers do go out of their way to ensure that their animals live good lives. Even if you believe raising animals for food is wrong, at least give them credit for that. The worst part is the ending: Sterk, the "[[DesignatedHero hero]]", reacts to the farmer's claims by brutally murdering his family before his eyes just to prove a point. While this isn't the only comic that glorifies abuse of "carnists", this one is particularly bad because Sterk's actions are excessively cruel, even by his standards. At least he usually sticks to [[DisproportionateRetribution punishing]] those who are actually "guilty" in his eyes instead of going for horrifying RevengeByProxy. He's also a massive hypocrite on top of being a murderer: killing animals for food is wrong, but killing innocent humans to prove a point is okay?

* Tropers/CaptainTedium: I always found the Webcomic/{{Dolan}} series to be disgusting and horrific trash from the get-go, but just when I thought that the comics couldn't get any more depraved, I stumbled upon a strip where Dolan hears Mickey express his happiness at being a father soon and the psychopathic mallard responds by [[MoralEventHorizon using a toilet plunger to abort Minnie's babies against her will, subsequently deciding to rape her in order to impregnate her with his own children]]. The very idea of Donald Duck doing something so vile to his best friend is beyond reprehensible, and it infuriates me that the comic would ever have Dolan stoop to such a low.

** Lemia: The above was my DMOS too and the point I stopped reading the webcomic regularly. I initially was fine with Anthony Carver's return because I thought it signaled that Tom was starting to finally bring the comic to its conclusion with a tighter focus on unresolved plot threads. I was also fine with Anthony acting completely awful towards Annie in his introduction because I thought he would be called out on it and either have to work HARD to make up for his neglect/abuse or Annie would get help from others to break free from him. It was when it became clear that Anthony was going to be painted with the "Oh no, he's not ''really'' a bad guy; you just need to get to know him better!" brush instead of actually having to learn how to be a better father or getting some comeuppance for his actions even though he treated Annie so horribly that ''she literally split her soul in half'' to be able to function around him that my trust in Siddel broke. Add to that how the plot conveniently forgets that he's around whenever it wants to focus on other plotlines in spite of how his return ''should'' have had a major impact on how free Annie was to go on adventures now, and I stopped reading.

** [=Ryanruff13=]: As much as I do still appreciate some aspects of ''Square Root of Minus Garfield'', the webcomic hasn't personally appealed to me [[JumpingTheShark as much as it had early on in its run]], with [[http://www.mezzacotta.net/garfield/?comic=503 "Garfield Plus Jim Davis' Ego"]] serving as an example of one of the reasons why I believe so. The only joke of the comic is editing it so that ''Garfield'' creator Jim Davis brags about himself by taking Garfield's bragging in the original strip and giving it to him, for no reason other than to perpetuate the perception that "Jim Davis is egotistical lel". While [[TakeThat Take Thats]] can be humorous, and while I do believe that there are numerous critiques that one could make about the ''Garfield'' comics, I still feel that ''Square Root of Minus Garfield'' had shifted towards an overreliance on them early on. There's only so much that one can [[{{Deconstruct}} deconstruct]] something before it just feels overly cynical, if not somewhat arrogant.

* SCPIhpkmn: Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt has become borderline unreadable to me since Anthony Carver's return. Since he was introduced in Chapter 51, he has done nothing but act like a cold, cruel, passive-aggressive shitheel to his daughter Antimony, literally the only family he has left in the world. Why? Because his daughter reminds him of his wife. I'm not going to cover the batshit psychological implications that has for him, because this isn't about that. This is about the fact that Tom Siddel has the absolute gall to put him through a redemption arc, and not make him work for his redemption! Instead, Antimony has to suffer for his sins: her self-confidence is crushed, she can barely control her fire powers, and the comic seems determined on reminding us every chapter that she is the world's biggest fuck-up, while her father gets to continue having his old friends, and even makes nice with Kat, Antimony's best friend, which, somehow, doesn't drive Annie to having a complete meltdown and [[PlayingWithFire melting down half the Court]]. The vaguely human-shaped piece of shit is shaping up to be the biggest KarmaHoudini in all of webcomics. What's tragic is that Tom's a better writer than this, but it's becoming clearer and clearer that the story is more focused on being a TraumaCongaLine [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot as opposed to telling a good narrative]].

* Tropers/CaptainTedium: ''Webcomic/MurryPurryFreshAndFurry'' was one of the worst webcomics I ever read, particularly because of many scenes being needlessly disgusting for the sake of shock value and the author at times coming off as being overbearingly pretentious with the [[TakeThat petty jabs]] he made toward other webcomics, even going so far as to call fans of ''Webcomic/{{Xkcd}}'' "functionally retarded". However, the absolute worst part of this comic for me would be the arc that [[BizarroEpisode ignored the series' main story to focus on]] a crossover between ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends'' and ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', especially when Danny Williams from the former was depicted as an extremely unflattering and stereotypical brony caricature by being fat, stubbly, and obsessed with making Fluttershy his wife. It was at that point that I finally gave up on giving this webcomic a chance. Fuck this shit!
