*** Said parody's first three pages of speech comprised ''one sentence'. There's a reason Kankri is TheFriendNobodyLikes.

* This is a criticism often levelled at ''WebComic/CtrlAltDel''. In fact, a certain ImageBoard came up with something called "CAD Rule" -- the law that if you take the first panel and the last panel of a ''Ctrl+Alt+Del'' strip, remove the text from the last panel, and post it, it will automatically be much funnier, as [[http://www.cad-comic.com/cad/20060331 this strip]] "shows".

** The short-lived comic, based on [[ProfessionalWrestling pro wrestler]] The UltimateWarrior, was filled from cover to cover with walls of text, much of it consisting of incomprehensible, made-up jargon. Much of the text centers on Warrior's strange pseudo-philosophy that nearly makes TimeCube look sane by comparison. To see just how crazy and nonsensical it is, almost to the point it is hard to believe it could exist, see WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment's [[http://www.thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/bt/spoonyone/reviews/7238-warrior1 review of it]]. Making it worse was that sometimes it was printed in font colors that were unreadable on the background color. The sheer volume of text and its insane, babbling nature really can't be overstated here. There's a text box for the crazy narrator, a text box for "Warrior"'s crazy inner monologue, and ''then'' thought bubbles for "Warrior"'s crazy thoughts. It amounts to, at ''minimum'', a good 4-5 paragraphs per page...

* ''ComicStrip/TheKChronicles'' is very much this. It's not unusual to have strips where a majority of the panels are nothing but text, with very little actual drawings.

* One of the many, ''MANY'' criticisms of ''WebComic/{{Sonichu}}''. To say that it's not so much a comic as it is wall after migraine-inducing wall of Comic Sans with the occasional illustration would be a more than accurate assessment of the visual onslaught on display here. It gets so bad that even the official wiki [[http://www.sonichu.com/cwcki/Chris_and_writing#Visual_clarity throws up their hands in despair]].
--> '''Sonichu Wiki:''' Holy balls, try reading ''this''.

This afflicts all written media, but it is particularly infamous for its effect on ComicBooks. One of the first things learned in comics is how to use dialogue bubbles effectively; a writer not allocating space carefully will end up covering their panel with a bunch of text and white space. Eventually the reader will realize that they're just looking at plain text rather than the vivid form of storytelling by imagery that comic books are famed for.

* [[FinalFantasyXIV Final Fantasy XIV's]] favorite method of storytelling and exposition is to have main NPC characters stand in a circle and talk at ridiculous length about pretty much anything to whatever threat you're currently facing to [[ContemplateOurNavels philosophical pablum,]] all while the player character [[SilentProtagonist stands there will a stupid look on his face.]] Alphinaud and Minfilia are the ''worst'' about it, and the situation is usually exacerbated by the Dev Team's need to pad the story/stall for time before the next significant update or expansion.
