Started way back in '99, Dragon Tails is a daily, 3D-rendered Web Comic that focuses on the lives of a group of eight young dragons, a pair of kung-fu squirrels, a cat, several malfunctioning robots and other assorted characters.It updated daily for five years (only ever missing one update) and went on hiatus for about a year before coming back for about two years and then, fading out again around March of '08. Dragon Tails went off hiatus in June '09 only for the weekly updates to stop in early 2010 again.There are about 2000 strips in all with a strong continuity and consistent humor.Not to be confused with Dragon Tales, the kids' tv show with a similar name.
This webcomic provides examples of:
Aerith and Bob: The main characters, named Bluey, Goldy, Brainy, Enigma, Lemuel, Corlis, Abijar and Cornelius.
Art Evolution: After the RPG arc Art Shift, long-time readers would've been surprised to see the visual quality has improved a lot, such as that the author has seriously improved both the models and the characters' expressions, among other things.
Unreliable Author: Many threads on the DT forums speculate about where the comic will go, or how a plot point will be resolved. Tim likes to jump into these himself and gleefully spread "Word of God" comments ranging from snark, to Blatant Lies, to things you think are Blatant Lies but it turns out aren't.
"I'm thinking once I've finished the RPG storyline I'll just turn the whole website into a tech blog to discuss motherboards and memory sticks. Should be pretty exciting stuff, I hope I don't lose too many readers."
"Actually it's part of my elaborate 11 year setup to a Fight Club style twist - prepare to have your minds blown. "
Weapons-Grade Vocabulary: Corlis typically make a cutting remark, witty retort or sarcasm in whatever events that's happened, but his attempt to use his jokes as this in this strip resulted in a failure, as robots simply removed their speech recognition modules.
