Robert A. Howard, this one’s for you! Or: On art in webcomics. Or: This really would have worked better if it was color like every other Wotch strip.

(From The Wotch. Click for full-sized awkward moments.) Good evening. Today I’m here to talk about a grave condition afflicting webcomics all across the land. I call it Casey and Andy Eyes. This condition, afflicting many a webcomic but especially those drawn by marginal artists or those overly inspired by anime, has as its major […]

I can post CAD-related posts at least once a month without even trying. Take that, OOTS!

(From Ctrl+Alt+Del. Click for full-sized introductory collage.)Ah yes. Another one of these. Is it just me, or could I care less after the last one of these and certainly after the madness we just went through? I know Tim probably wants to bring us through a comedown after the exhausting spell he put us through […]

Someone linked to me on the Halfpixel.com forums and I got over a hundred hits yesterday. And I missed it. Oops.

(From Ctrl+Alt+Del. Click for full-sized commitment. And click here for what I mention in the title. Oh, and this post contains spoilers. Oops.) You notice I’m not even bothering with the Angst-O-Meter for this one. My first reaction to this was: WHAT??? I couldn’t help but think of Lucas and anyone else who might have been […]

The Angst-O-Meter: Day 5

(From Ctrl+Alt+Del. Click for full-sized mixed emotions.) First, with the election approaching, for at least four of the next five weeks Tuesday will become webcomics day again on Da Blog, counting this post. Second, I’m linking to this post from here and here, so expect at least a slight bump in traffic. With this apparent […]

The Angst-O-Meter: Day 4

(From Ctrl+Alt+Del. Click for full-sized incriminating evidence.) I know I said I was done with the Angst-O-Meter until after the election, but circumstances have intervened and I have to comment on today’s strip, despite the mountain of other stuff on my plate. So it seems that if, when Shannon was first introduced, you had Ethan […]

The Angst-O-Meter: Day 3 or Conclusion

(From Ctrl+Alt+Del. Click for full-sized surprises.)   This will be the last Angst-O-Meter, at least for now… I’m about to launch into something big and webcomics posts are about to be curtailed sufficient to force me to stop. Neither of the conditions I set when I started are extant; I just need to save time. […]

The Angst-O-Meter: Day 2

(From Ctrl+Alt+Del. Click for full-sized footnotes.) A couple of notes about today’s Ctrl+Alt+Del. First, I’m starting to wonder if Tim is starting to send the message that Ethan is not nearly as much of an idiot as he’s long been made out to be, and never has been (pointing to the creation of Zeke). That […]

The Angst-O-Meter: Day 1

(From Ctrl+Alt+Del. Click for full-sized backhand.) Time to play the game that’s sweeping the nation: the Ctrl+Alt+Del Angst-O-Meter! I was going to post this yesterday, but Monday Night Football, and other TV-watching pursuits, largely monopolized my time. In a sense, Ctrl+Alt+Del is becoming the anti-Order of the Stick. Whereas if I were to post every time […]

This makes three straight CADs I’ve posted on and four straight I’ve commented on.

(From Ctrl+Alt+Del. Click for full-sized imagined nut shot.) Sure. Attack me for not recognizing someone we last saw in, what, 2004 now? Under a different art style? I stand by the idea that CAD is ramping up the DRAMA~! faster than some people might be willing to put up with. Just look at the cross-cutting […]

Tim Buckley probably isn’t interested in a word I say, but I have to get it off my chest anyway.

(From Ctrl+Alt+Del. Click for full-sized breakup.) So it looks like Lucas and Kate are splitting up, rather suddenly, just as Lucas was about to tell Kate he finally does love her. This as we, basically simultaneously (through cross-cutting), learn that Gamehaven, the store where Ethan works (well, sort of), has been sold to someone else… who, whoever […]
