Sketchbook Strip 120703

Don't you love how well developed of a character Ellen is? You can just SEE how deep of a character she is, and how 3-dimensional her motives and tastes are. Truly a character one should admire.

You know, this really tempts me to invoke a logical fallacy but...how the fuck can people like Ellen?

I mean, if you like her cause she's hot than fine, at least you're HONEST with yourself. But for those that like her as a character I just...

YOU DON'T LIKE A CHARACTER. YOU LIKE A PIECE OF OBJECTIFIED MEAT.

Yeah, that's what I want to read. Something not even the author wants to write.

I don't know why you want to write comedy, you kinda suck at it, Shive.

A lot.

Like, a lot a lot.

Your talent, it appears, is writing ecchi comedy, which is a bit different.

Oh Shive. Your lack of subtlety is hilarious.

Also, it's not that hard to switch between light and airy and dark. Manga does it all the time. You know, that type of comic book that you're a total weeaboo for?

See, here's the problem. You're pretty much also ruining the drama. Damien isn't all powerful! He's just a small time!

Vlad isn't a vampire thing! He's just an emo wanker!

Yeah, real scary, right?

Fuck you Shive. Fuck you.

I'd say more, but the entirety of this rant needs to be saved for the NEXT sketchbook entry.

Shive, when you genderswapped the guy into a girl, you made hisher shirt go from normal to barely covering anything. What does your straw fan get? A fully covering outfit.

Prick.

Prickity-prick-prick.

Also, you realize that you've now revealed that the entire GENIUS behind your joke is "HE'S A DIFFERENT GENDER ISN'T THAT HILARIOUS?"

Also, this comes across as rather egotistical. Mostly because the unfortunate implications were really damn obvious. And the joke wasn't even funny!

And because this comic wouldn't be good without a hot chick, lets add the scantily clad girl from the last strip!

Because BOOBS.

You know, if this is what feminist and gay-friendly and progressive comics are like, I'd shudder to see what normal comics are like.
