    Default Andrew Dickman's The Roomies returns

    After years of indefinite hiatus, The Roomies by TGWTG artist Andrew Dickman is finally back. Go and take a look.

    What's shitty about this comic? It's only two pages in.

    The original was shitty. Just because he's rebooted it doesn't mean it's going to be any better.

    Actually, lets rip this one even more of a new anus.

    Reboot. Fuck off. Just because it's rebooted doesn't make it good. What it does is say "people wanted the comic to resume, and have waited for it, so I deleted it all and started again". It's not returning, it's a completely new thing dressed up like the old thing. By not even archiving the old comic, it basically flips the bird at anyone who previously liked it, and has the temerity to assume everyone will love the new product. I disliked the original, and I dislike what I see of this so far. And even from an objective point of view, it's a complete dick move.

    FYI, the original comic is right one the "other" section. For all I know, it could take place where the orignal comic left off. Besides, this is just a flashback.

    I still think it's boring and lacks any potential. OK so it starts out with a bunch of immature kids fighting in a playground. SO MUCH POTENTIAL.

    Again, it's just a flashback. Also, the reason that the original didn't seem interesting enough because it got discontinued too soon before the plot even had a chance to move forward. AWD has a bevy of other characters planned for it, and we just saw the four main characters.

    Mind you, it's no Silver Foxes, but it'll just be something to have fun with.

    Problem there straight away. A comic needs to draw readers in quickly, preferably within the first 5 pages. By starting straight into what you claim is a flashback, it sets the comic up to be all about a bunch of kids at school. It says nothing about the comic or where it's going. It's like starting off the first episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with 25 minutes of a scientist carefully mixing chemicals before he accidentally drops it in the sink. Your first impression would be that it's a show about clumsy scientists, rather than a bunch of reptiles trained by a rat with inexplicable martial arts skills.

    Yeah so I read the update. It still sucks. I have to agree that this comic isn't going anywhere fast and will probably be dropped soon anyways. I don't see why a bunch of people are going apeshit over it...it probably isn't going to stick around the fandom much longer.

    As Failor showed me, no matter how repulsive and shitty something is, furries will gobble it up anyway because there's not much else to eat.

    Roomies Reloaded might very well go the same way as Las Tittas if Andyboy finds a way to monetize his oeuvre, too.

    I agree. Apparently some furries will bawwwwwww about anything. And for all we know, this comic could go well. Just have to wait and see I suppose.

    Now that this scene has run its course, we can finally see the chracters how left off. I'm actually glad we're done with this part now.

    No, because what has just happened is not a flashback if it's the opening of the damn thing.

    Dickman already said that this is a flashback. He also said that we're moving on in the description.

    Again, this does not matter. A comic is a failure if you have to tell the audience what is going on in the comments.

    How can it be a flashback if it's the start of the comic? Doesn't that stuff has to, you know, flash back to a prior time from the present? Without any framing device this kiddie stuff is the present. If anything, it's a time skip.

    ...I'm lost here.

    But yeah I agree with Smelge. This comic is probably not gonna go very far. Sorry, but that's my opinion.

    And another thing. Why the hell are you arguing about some dumb ass comic? Isn't there something better you could do, instead of wasting minutes of your lives arguing about something that isn't even relevant to you? Immaturity at it's finest

    I've heard of Andrew Dickman (in fact, I heard of him before I knew he was affiliated with TGWTG) but I had no clue he was into making furry webcomics, although it all does make sense to me now after I've checked his deviant art gallery and a small number of blip.tv videos (they were... mediocre). I don't know why, but it creeps me out a little.

    I think Dickman's really good at drawing and I'm not just talking about that anthro stuff. As much I hate TGWTG, the title cards he makes for the site are pretty neat.

    Problem is, that's the only praise I can give him. I read both the original version and this new one after taking a look on the link in this thread and it makes me cringe. The original had too much stock animu humor to be memorable and in a way I can't help but feel that the art is a bit... sexualised. I dunno why it bothers me just when HE does it, but I know he can do better and the characters don't need to be sexy. There's also the constant animu expressions that are meant to be LOLWACKY. I just feel like I'm too old for that.

    As for the new one, it felt worse in some ways. The art is better, but I'm really tired of furry comics about how persecuted people are for being different. Even if it's not the whole human vs. furries here, we do have a giraffe being bullied for being a "longneck", and since I know Andrew loves cartoons and have probably watched The Land Before Time a million times over, I'm surprised I didn't get whiplash from the sheer impact of my palm hitting my face.

    It's disheartening, really. He's SO GOOD at drawing but just like everyone on the internet, just because he draw, he thinks he can write. It doesn't work that way, and that's why webcomics suck.

    AND I JUST NOTICED THIS, the logo has a video game controller and a pair of panties. That... is just tasteless and probably says a lot about what kind of guy he is. Sigh.

    EDIT:
    JUST NOTICED THIS TOO, the boy's name is Andy and he has an art studio in his room, accompanied with posters and action figures. I wonder...

    Maybe the comic isn't very good, but Andrew Dickman himself gets two billion points for drawing this.
    Hey folks. Go check out Weasyl.

    Dear writers, go check out the The Furry Writers' Guild forums, or join the Guild, if you have what it takes.

    I'll admit, that was a pretty good drawing. Apparently I was right about the new version starting where the original left off. As for Kellie's comment on the title logo, the game controller represents the character Swain and the panties pretty much represents the other character Mary. Here's his FA account.
