Another reason I'd have used Arco-flagellants instead
I clearly remember Milton made crawling, land based ones as well.
Yup. Their specialty was looking up women's dresses. They were so feeble that you could destroy them by stepping on them. None of them seemed to be equipped with frickin' lasers on their heads, either.
But let me correct myself. I do think that we'll see some fembots soon: the three Assassinbots. Somehow they and the Resurrected Headless Samtron will be involved in the death of MMXIX.
(I wonder how an elderly MMXIX will be depicted?)
Have to wonder if she'll still have her stork with her.
New strip: https://www.sinfest.net/view.php?date=2019-10-10
"My evil critics are threatening to doxx and destroy me!" cried the cartoonist who has not been doxxed and whose existence provides a perverse sort of entertainment for his critics.
BTW: 379 patrons, $1,187 per month.
Tats, it isn't us, it's you.

Also another gag that is stretched out.
Exactly. Why would anyone want to dox him? The train wreck that is his career is far more entertaining to watch. Hell, I want him to drop all pretenses and just go Hulk. Because if his comic isn't going to be entertaining the Pettyfests sure as hell will. XD
Watching his Patreon dwindle is also more entertaining. It just feels like justice. He shut people up, made fun of them when they couldn't speak, then they got their own voices, made their own discord, reactivated a mostly dead Reddit, got louder than him, and now he's crying that he's being silenced.
It feels like just desserts, to be honest.
It's kind of like watching a kid get picked on, then the kid grows some stones, kicks the bully's ass, and then the bully cries that nobody likes him. You feel a LITTLE bit of sympathy for the bully, but at the end you just go, "Well...you DESERVED it!" XD

I shouldn't give Tats any ideas, but ... One of the astonishing things about New Sinfest is how frakkin' inept and ineffective it is. If his political points were made in conversations and interactions between identifiable characters with human personalities, they'd be a lot more effective than what he's doing now. Cardboard cutouts pantomiming indecipherable metaphors just don't work when you want to convey a coherent message.
Hell, even comic strips like Mallard Fillmore and Doonesbury are more effective ... They aren't subtle and metaphorical, but they don't leave their readers in confusion about that the message is, and they don't alienate their own fans.

Still using the drones as punching bags?
They're probably meant to represent someone or something Tats hates, but he's been lashing out at so many people lately I'm not even sure who or what he's bitching about this time.
Comrade Hexapodia! I must correct your thinking for the good of the revolution!
You forget that screaming your message in a hysterical over the top and counterproductive manner proves your loyalty to the revolution!
If you end up looking like a lobotomised cretin with a meth addiction, then so much the better
No matter how many enemies of the people you alienate!
Proper character interaction, a well written story to engage people and putting across your points in a well reasoned and persuasive manner is the hallmark of the bourgeois intellectual subversive classes!
You're not an intellectual subversive are you comrade?!
Then please let Comrade Tats continue to shill his hysterical and ludicrous nonsense!
And please remember when the party modernises he will be (as one of our most fanatically deranged true believers) be sent to a gulag (for having a penis); to also help him master his obvious talents at dropforging anvils and ranting at clouds
A sad fate perhaps, but post-castration by the sisters in the commissariat he will be so much less masculinarly aggressive in his delusional ranting
Viva la revolution!

I shall report to the self-criticism circle at once, comrade!
Gibson, you aren't going far enough. Tats needs to be given the financial and reputation eradication equivalent of what Rome did to Carthage.
Sinfest Delenda Est!

Why? And lose all this entertainment?
At this point Tats is just our little hamster, running on his hamster wheel.
Run! Run, little hamster!
I can understand that feeling. If it is the same Yami I remember from the Discord then there is several reasons why they'd want to banish Tats to the nether realm. For some of us (myself included), this is cringe worthy entertainment. For some others, what Tatsuya did is really hurtful. For some others still, they agree with Tatsuya.
I am definitely a fan of voting with dollars. And Yami, I think you can see that is happening. It is clear that less and less people are enjoying his work. He will have that element that will back him as long as he doesn't betray them.
Basically, he will never be successful because radical feminism will never be successful. It's too fringe. That can always change, of course but I doubt it. You'd have to somehow convince the other half of society to essentially say, "Everything I have will be yours because you say it's owed to you."
You know what is easier to accept though? "Let me believe what I want to believe. Let me live my life how I want."
His hamster name shall be Tatters. Or "The Mad Tatter".

Yuumo gwei gwai fai dee...something, something, whatever.
Wait. Wasn't "Nana" supposed to be rushing to the defense of Li'l Evil? Did Tats forget about the entire "Royalty" plot arc of Li'l E, and Satan, and Lilith, and Hekate, and Vainglorious, and the rest?
Edited by Hexapodia on Oct 10th 2019 at 9:23:06 AM
To be fair, Uncle at least knew what he was doing. This reeks of someone who read Harry Potter and thinks they're now a wizard.
The answer to both is yes.
Edited by AsherTye on Oct 10th 2019 at 9:27:16 AM
Again way to tire out a joke.
Yes I am.
Also the Netherworld is Too Nice For Him. He needs to be banished somewhere Truly Awful. Someplace Just as Filthy and Hatefilled as him. He needs to be sent to the world of....FATAL.
That's kinda overkill for anyyone... I mean, I wouldn't send my worst enemy to the world of FATAL. On the other hand, having him share the same room with Ryan Sohmer for two years? Just about enough.
Tats needs time in story to show Lil' E the inner workings of Hell
Yup, Nana and Hecate both took a look at the odds and said "Meh, not my problem". In her defense, Nana did bake a protective circle
Truer comrades Lilith would have had if she'd asked a random stranger in the street for help
It's most likely Tats needs time to figure out where the hell he goes in the Lily storyline.
In the meantime he can still whinge like a little bitch about his second former fanclub being woke and "harassing" him by existing
The woke as partiarchy drones threatening passersby at random- Such Subtlety! Such misrepresentation with 0.0001% of the woke standing in for the 99.9999%!
Such Utter Bullcrap
Tats really is a holier-than-thou madman. I'm finding it hard to tell nowadays whether he's an extremist rightwinger or an extremist leftwinger.
Either way he's one of the fringe crazies

It's most likely Tats needs time to figure out where the hell he goes in the Lily storyline.
I think it's just as likely that Tats is trying to figure out where he'll be allowed to go in the Lily storyline. This filler could be the result of stalling for time during negotiations with someone who doesn't approve of his intended resolution.
Grandma doesn't want to be distracted by the screams of her victims so she knocks them out with a spell.
And we thought she was the nice one within the Sisterhood!
The worst thing is that Nana putting the drones to sleep is the closest thing to plot advancement we've got ALL WEEK.
I'm pretty sure Tats backed out of the Lil E Meets His Dad plotline because it can't go anywhere without depicting a male character in a positive way and/or at least one female character in a negative way, and we can't have that, can we? The way the characters map out now, you've got:
Vainglorious is older than Lil E by a considerable margin, but Lilith and D-Man have been together since their equivalent of magic high school (and Hekate didn't like him then, or at least she didn't approve of their relationship), and apparently only stopped seeing each other after Lil E was born. There's really only a few ways for that relationship triangle to math out when it is literally impossible for an author to depict sexually-active, male-female relationships in a positive way:
In A, Lilith, who has been depicted as incorruptibly pure to the point of having to die to prove it becomes the kind of backstabber that dates the guy who humped-and-dumped her pregnant bestie and abandons their friendship altogether.
In B, Hekate, who can fight God with a wave of her hand and currently holds title for "Most Powerful Being in Sinfest's Universe", becomes the kind of backstabber that fucks her incorruptibly pure best friend's man just because she can, gets knocked up, resents the father, and abandons her son to be raised in Hell because she hates men and won't make an exception for her own child.
In either scenario, one of those girls is catastrophically betraying another girl for the sake of a man, which ends in the empowerment of another male (the determination of D-Man's proper heir: his very young legitimate son, or his firstborn bastard) and the tarnishing of a woman's reputation.
Tats has gone a long, long way out of his way to make sure the audience knows that Lilith is Good and Pure and Hekate is a Powerful Protector of the Innocent, and doing anything to continue this plotline is going to ruin some part of that for somebody.
