Firstly we don't take kindly to people spamming our boards. We're kinda like a pretty girl, take us out to a nice dinner, give us some nice words, tell us our post counts look big, lower our inhibitions with some wine. Then try to stick your link(in)on to us. We might be a tad more receptive.

But no you decide you want to just put a few roofies in our drinks and shove your comics on to us, all forceful and man like, well sir around these parts it usually gets you in trouble with the law, and Mr Kaolian doesn't take to kindly to strangers thrusting their unsolicited links onto his sweet and lovable posters faces.

Good day sir!

(In other news. You need to refine your art style a bit its very 'messy' and work on your delivery, I mean it kinda made sense but felt you just put in a ton of vulgarity that would get middle schoolers to snicker, but here on these forums most of us are old jaded veterans. ****, we've seen trade chat for long enough to have us unaffected by such crass humor. If you want to see how real men taunt, I'm sure Theo could teach you a thing or two as he has no problems pulling threat from all sides and he barely ever cusses(on the forums(iirc)))

(Also let this be a lesson to never wake up in the middle of the night and expect to make any sense to anyone in a post Yay sleep deprivation)

Despite what Spongebob might tell you cuss words are not "sentence enhancers". They tend to lower the quality of your work unless used appropriately. What you did in your comic is not appropriate or funny. As BeanX stated, it is the kind of humor a kid in middle school would find awesome due to their twisted view on what it means to be an adult. Artwork seems lacking but it really isn't the art that will sell a comic (I have seen some horrendous looking comics that were popular for some reason).

Also don't be a tool and ***** the links out like that. At least take us to e-dinner first.

Don't be sorry unless you are unwilling to learn and improve.

Edit: What I was trying to explain in that short sentence is that you have nothing (well being a first time poster and spamming what we can only assume is your comic you do have that against you) to be sorry about. Take what has been said and improve your work. If you are willing to put forth the effort you will get better and, hopefully, end up with some of the greats in online comics. That said you have one **** of an uphill climb to get there.

Return of the Edit: Go here to learn some stuff about it. It is a comic / basic cartoon guide.

Needs a lot of work IMO.

#1.1
Awkward composition, awkward phrasing. The crowd'd line sounds forced and unrealistic, and "Hand it to me" makes no sense whatsoever.
1.2
Drawing works much better here, although it looks like the same people from p1 are now being attacked, which is confusing. Clarity is needed in whomever you are representing. The random stream of curses makes no sense - "bozo" is something i'd expect from a small child or "proper" elderly person, "cr**face" . .isn't even a thing I've ever heard. Think of how you'd insult somebody; do that.
1.3
I don't know who this is or what they're doing. And what's with Inky, Blinky, & Clyde over there?
1.4
Best done panel of the bunch. If you're going to make the release button, you may as well make it look like the release button.

I looked this thing over about 8 times writing this and still don't know what happened. That's kind of a problem. Lo-fi art can work fine, but it needs to be clean and the message needs to be clear.

While the comics themselves weren't all that interesting, I disagree with your reason. The swearing in question were completely appropriate for the situation they were in. The tank character was trying to incite the opposing forces to attack him, and a pretty good way is through the language used.

How the **** does the Mage off-tank in the first place? I get that the Warrior is taunting them, but the Mage class doesn't have a taunt, unless Mists of Pandathing revamped the class something fierce. To my knowledge, the only caster class capable of taunting is the Warlock, and that requires using the Glyph of Dark Apotheosis.

As for the swearing, I agree with Gaxe that the swearing is appropriate to indicate "taunting," but the enemies also swear a lot, which doesn't really make sense. Swearing is a powerful way to show emotion in text (an old Danish word for swear words is "kraftudtryk," meaning "powerful expressions"), but overdoing it has the opposite effect.

The third comic was pretty cool as it ties together the previous two episodes. I'm having some issues figuring out what's what in the last frame, but the point gets across (that the Mage can't stop taunting stuff, even while in Stormwind). I'm just not sure why one of the people trying to push through the door is telling another person to block the back door.

Edit: I'm also not sure if the author has ever played World of Warcraft, because, as others have mentioned already, aside from the Warrior and the Mage, nothing connects them to the World of Warcraft universe. The release button could be from any game (as it does not look like the release button in WoW) and nothing in the last frame indicates that it is, in fact, taking place in Stormwind. You could remove the "World of Warcraft" header and use this comic for any "sword and sorcery" MMORPG with a Warrior and Mage/Sorcerer/Elementalist class. Or it could be a neutral comic that mixes and matches from all games, but then you'd need to not make direct links to World of Warcraft.

I get the distinct feeling that this comic was made with no particular game in mind and then modified to reference World of Warcraft because of the new expansion.

Edit2: Also rated the thread up to keep it visible, in case the original poster has the default filter setting on. Don't hate me for it, I'm just trying to get him to respond to our feedback.

They didn't want him to sneak out the back way? My best guess. Mage pulled aggro even though he wasn't there or something?
