Anonymous asked: DresdenCuntdak should get his Batman reboot made into a comic. Written by Joel Schumacher with art by Rob Liefield. It'd be the best option for his shit fest.
Cool Mod: Just contemplate the arrogance of using most of your time to remake other people’s intellectual property…
And it’s sure as hell not for learning purposes, it’s just this constant stream of self-aggrandizement. He’s treating the concept of comic art like it’s gallery art.

5inthemourning asked: While I appreciate your showing up Aaron Diaz for misusing the Kickstarter marketplace (being an occasional donor myself), however the student of economics in me does think that the value of what he is offering can really only be determined by the market. You can only wait and see if people value his art enough to donate towards what is essentially a non exclusive public good, keeping in mind they also benefit from the other pledge incentives, some of the 800K presumably going to those as well.
I would think if his comic has enough value he’d make money from the comic and not from a kickstarter.
And either way he should be able to update more regularly than he does now.
se: a student of economics should know what happens when you inflate the value of something that is extremely common. I know that, and I don’t know shit about economics.
Anonymous asked: The Dresden Codak guy wants $700k to update once every two weeks. PA is getting at least $90k to "produce" a podcast (which will then be pay-what-you-want per episode - free for all purposes, yeah, but you know some idiots will be essentially paying them twice). Meanwhile Gigi D.G. is promising to update four times a week if her book kicstarter hits something like just $50k. Said comic is just as visually striking as DC. Are we entering some kind of age of assumed webcomic celebrity?
Not entering, entered.
The dresden codak and penny arcade kickstarters are fully nauseating.
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1003106610/the-cucumber-quest-book-project?ref=category As much as I’m not a fan, I am still pleased that these projects end up making it. (Although I still love those MGS comics of course, I’d pay for a kickstarter print book of that.)
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/twokinds/twokinds-book-printing-drive?ref=category NOT THIS ONE OF COURSE. $200,000, I’d love to know what he’s going to do with it. I mean seriously, is this guy just going to get TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS? Is he going to get a check for that, deposit it into his bank? And then probably spend a few thousand dollars on the thing he was actually going to do, and then what? Blow the rest on snacks? Order pizza every day for the rest of his life?
Although twokinds is frivolous pablum, at least the guy is updating regularly for the money he’s taken from the kickstarter. The fact that the dresden codak guy wants ANOTHER few hundred thousand just to update regularly is fucking mindblowing. In the case of penny arcade, I get it, they know they can fleece their fans and they’re doing it. Maybe depriving pa fans of their disposable incomes is for the best. Maybe it’ll just result in the rise of more mediocre shit. I don’t know. I just hope if these shitty webcomics can make a fortune for nothing, maybe some of the good projects in that kickstarter can make a nice piece too.
