Ghastly's Ghastly Comic (feedback needed):

This was cut pretty early on, and has been brought up a couple times on the restoration thread, so I'd like to get some more info on it. As I understand it, its NSFW, but not porn.

It is NSFW, it is not porn. The issue really is actually the chibi race which are weird tiny people with no fingers and childlike proportions. This is a chibi. They are mentally adults and act like it, but they are sexualized.

There isn't really anything explicit featuring them though, and anything else in the comic that is explicit is played for laughs.

Well, if we can keep Oglaf, I think we can keep this work; it's primary purpose is comedy, instead of titillation.
I have read the entire comic chibi sue's purpose for exiting is that she wants a boy friend who is not a pedophile however she cant find one and is a virgin at 30.

Also she never appears nude and seems to exits to mock the older then they look thing.

What might be questionable is the tentacle monster kid who innocently thinks sex toys are ninja weapons.

It's funny, but folks need to keep an eye on the page so it doesn't get gross.

For the record, the source is still visible in the history

Google Images didn't give anything insta-cut-worthy, to address the monster issue in [up][up]

[up]He is never sexualized he just thinks sex toys are ninja weapons its all played for laughs.
 
Legendary Outlaw? ...Forget it.
[up][up] There's a strip in Questionable Content (which, by the way, is a mostly non-indicative name) where the main character's mother, who used to be a fetish porn model, shows his friends a picture of him when he was a kid, waving around a dildo. Is that cut-worthy, too?

Sex toys are played one of two ways. If they're being used for their intended purpose, it's sexual. If almost anything else is being done with them, it's comedy.

Yeah, the kid with the sex toys is played for laughs because he doesn't realise what they are. He's actually completely UNsexualized to the point of comical innocence.

Yeah, we're not looking to cut anything simply for mentioning sex in the same page/panel/whatever where children are present. The "kids don't understand the difference between sex toys and real toys" gag (among other sex-based humor) has been done in South Park, which is fine.

As long as it doesn't seem to be drawn with the intent of people getting off to it, it should be fine (fine to keep a page on, at least.) I can't say for sure before completing my review, though, so take what I'm saying with a grain of salt.

Well, it's a comic about sex and fetishes, but it's mostly to gently (well, not so gently in some cases) make jokes about them.

I'd keep the page under lock so as to keep it from going into questionable territory, but I think it should stay.

U Jelly?
I read it. It's around the same level as Oglaf, primarily comedy with use of sex humor. Lock would be fine, it's already ended anyways.

Just because something's over doesn't mean there aren't tropes to be added to it's page.

If a lock is determined to be needed, tropes can always be added to it by making a request to a mod.

even older skool
And on the other hand, if the comic is over and the page isn't currently lewd enough to be problematic, there's no reason to conclude it will develop issues without a lock.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. It doesn't make sense to me to lock something when there's no actual problems happening. (And no reason to expect there to be any, as far as I can tell.)
"So... the time has come for you to meet your demise..."
Well, we currently don't have a page, so we can't tell whether its lewd or not.

Tagline

Ghastly's Ghastly Comic was an adult webcomic that ran from 2001 to 2006. Inspired by an NSFW Sexy Losers strip, the series is about tentacle monsters living in our world, and the people they interact with. These people include a chibi, a girly guy who speaks broken-Japanese, an attention whore Cosplay Otaku Girl, a Flaky New Age Neo-Pagan, Baby Cthulhu, a Cloudcuckoolander who looks perpetually stoned, a furry, a guy transplanted from a hentai game who has an invisible penis, a guy transplanted from a 1970s Blaxploitation flick, and Drunk and Bitter Jesus.

The series can be found here. This webcomic is Not Safe for Work, and be careful about the examples.

This work contains examples of:

From what I've seen of this webcomic, it's definitely not porn. While I can see why the chibi thing could have caused this to get cut previously, they don't seem to be there to pander to pedophiles... instead, they're almost exclusively used as a vehicle to make fun of pedophiles.

Unless there's some really awful explicit chibi sex arc somewhere that I didn't see, this one will get an angel from me.

[up]Having read the entire comic you never see a chibi naked let alone in a sex scene.

It's not porn. It does have some very NSFW strips but all in all it's not meant to be titillating but a parody/satire.

Some of the late entries are just erotic art, but it's still mainly wacky comedy.

2 angels for now.

This has 3 angel votes and a keep disposition.

So the page should be restored and this thread locked as done, right.

[up] Aye, that it should.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
