Overrated furry comics and why they suck

Im surprised Jack hasn't been mentioned yet.

"Dark is edgy and cool" overtone and no art improvement within sight.
 
not just webcomics here's a list from wikipedia, it's just a tad overused

  • There was a series of seven silent films made in 1917 that bore the series title, The Seven Deadly Sins, which began with Envy (1917), continued with Pride (1917), Greed (1917), Sloth (1917), Passion (1917), and Wrath (1917), and concluded with the synonymously titled The Seventh Sin (1917). The final installment was given that title because Gluttony was considered too offensive, and the producers couldn't come up with an adequate synonym.
  • The film The Devil's Nightmare is about a succubus who kills a group of tourists who are each guilty of one of the seven sins.
  • The original version of the film Bedazzled (1967) (remade in 2000) includes all seven sins; Raquel Welch as (Lillian) Lust, Barry Humphries as Envy, Alba as Vanity, Robert Russell as Anger, Parnell McGarry as Gluttony, Daniele Noel as Avarice, and Howard Goorney as Sloth.
  • In the film Seven (1995), written by Andrew Kevin Walker, directed by David Fincher and starring Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman, a mysterious serial killer punishes transgressors of each of the deadly sins through his crimes.
  • The Magnificent Seven Deadly Sins (1971) is a British film built around a series of comedy sketches on the seven deadly sins, and referencing the classic Western film The Magnificent Seven.
  • In the video game Overlord, the seven heroes that the protagonist must defeat have all been corrupted by one of the seven deadly sins.
  • The Seven Deadly Sins (traditionally given as "The Seven Deadly Enemies of Man") figure prominently in the mythos of Fawcett/DC Comics superhero Captain Marvel, and have appeared several times as supervillains in recent DC Comics publications.
  • In the manga and anime Digimon, the Seven Great Demon Lords, each of whom represent one of the sins, are a major group of antagonists.
  • In the manga and anime Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, the member of Varia each match one of the Seven Deadly Sins, their Latin names, or the respective demons of the sins.
  • In the manga and anime Fullmetal Alchemist, each sin is used as the name of each member of a group of powerful artificial humans called "homunculi", with each homunculus' personality and appearance being based on the sin which they are named after.
  • In the videogame Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, a major boss uses special attacks named after the deadly sins: Unleashed Wrath, End of Gluttony, Wings of Pride, Charge of Greed, Thunder of Envy, Defense of Lust, and Rage of Sloth.
  • In the videogame Devil May Cry 3, the seven deadly sins are represented by a group of common enemies, as well as by seven infernal bells. Fallen angels that personify the sins are also featured heavily in the prequel manga, in which they are important in summoning the bell-containing tower in the first place.
  • In an episode of America's Next Top Model, Cycle 4 each of the girls portrayed a deadly sin.
  • In the Philippines TV series Lastikman each major villain represents one of the deadly sins.
  • In the Norwegian TV show De syv dødssyndene (The Seven Deadly Sins), Kristopher Schau attempts to invoke the wrath of God by carrying out each of the seven deadly sins. When Schau was talking about the show on the talk show Senkveld (Late Night), he said "If I don't end up in Hell, then there is no Hell." The program caused a great deal of public debate surrounding the issue of censorship.
  • In Matt Fraction's comic book Casanova, the series' issues are named, in Latin, for each of the seven sins, beginning with Luxuria.
  • Rengoku II: The Stairway to Heaven is based on eight levels of a tower, seven named after the sins, the eighth being Paradise.
  • In the webcomic Jack, the seven sins are personified by anthropomorphs. The main character, Jack, represents the sin of Wrath.
  • Mark Watson Makes the World Substantially Better fits the sins into a six part BBC radio series, with Greed and Gluttony combined as the 'similar sins'.
  • In Knight Online's Bifrost are monsters that can hunt for Fragments of the seven sins. Fragments can be turned into unique items, or collected to gain access to the chamber of Ultima.
  • In 11eyes, the Black Knights are named Avaritia, Ira, Invidia, Acedia, Gula, and Superbia.
  • In Umineko no Naku Koro ni, the Seven Stakes of Purgatory are named after Peter Binsfeld's temptor demons and propagate or embody a deadly sin. Their ages follow the order of Purgatorio, Lucifer (Pride) being the eldest and Asmodeus (Lust) the youngest.
  • In Stan Lee and Hiroyuki Takei's manga Karakuridôji Ultimo, the main antagonists, excluding Vice, are based on the Seven Deadly Sins.
  • In the manga Soul Eater, Team Spartoi has to pass through the chapters of the Book of Eibon, each of the chapters in one of the seven deadly sins starting with Lust.
  • MTV Roadies 7.0 was the seventh season of MTV Roadies, a reality television show aired on MTV India. In this season, the roadies drive headed to the wild Africa. For reaching Africa, a roadie had to clear 7 stages,each stage was a twist which occurred when a roadie committed one of the 7 sins. The tag line for this season was '7 Deadly Sins. 1 Wild Safari'.

Jack is a comic so full of angst that it takes an entirely screw-ball art style contradictory to the horrible shock factor in order to cover it up.

And even that it doesn't do a good job of that. :V

I uh, don't read comics. There ought to be a website with all the speech bubbles removed so it's just the girly-boi spoo rag without all of the 5th grade romance dialogue. I mean, porn is bad.

Jack: Where do I start? Art is terrible, and there haven't been many signs of improvement over the years. Characters are usually whiny, 1-dimensional - Either purely "EVIL" or perfect little angels - and are usually seen with a tear in their eye. Stories are filled with angst, while trying to be "dark and edgy", and is knee-deep in cliches. Most characters look like Tiny Toons characters. The shock material feels forced.

As someone, who is (very slowly) drawing a comic himself, here are my 2 cents...

There are two kinds of comics in the furry fandom, IMHO. Porn, and non-porn. See, that's where the problems start. Lots of artists start drawing a porn comic, and...
-A: either start with the porn, and when the comic seems successfull, start writing elaborated backstories for the characters, or
-B: start with a complicated setup of the universe their fan-characters live in, and such.

Totally neglecting that people who want to read furry porn comics DO NOT CARE about such things. AT ALL.

Cases in point? Chochi's House Pets, which started out as a really funny porn comic, now turned into some weird stuff with the main character suddenly becoming AFRAID of sex when previously, he was shown banging every chick he encountered. Tegerio's comic about his Skunky Sue, which I have given up all hope of actually following anymore, as it makes no sense whatsoever (plot threads are worked up and dropped 10 pages later, the like).

Of the non-porn kind, we have things like Draconia Chronicles. A world populated with ONLY female tiger and dragon anthros, yet kids are born... Where the characters (especially while the comic was B&W) look totally interchangeable apart from hair/horn style, and thus after awhile I just stopped reading, not caring to remember who was who anymore. Not to mention that I really, really DISLIKE teasing comics. IE, where characters run around naked (all the dragons, who oddly have boobs but no nipples) or wearing little, but no sex actually ever happens.

My two cents, but if you do a porn comic, and decide to give it dialogue (often, it's totally unnecessary) either make it funny (like Zoorama's first issues), or don't bother at all. Check out Warren's Bear Force comic - that's IMHO how it should be done.

I frankly don't read any non-porn furry comic. Why would I? There are tons of much better, official comics out there from professional comic writers, more deserving my time.

And yeah, I read Blacksad. The first issue which was a kinda Film Noir story was pretty interesting. Second, not so much. I don't think I have seen the third in english yet.

This is why I'm trying to get better at drawing so that I could start my own.. I wanted to do it as a graphic novel but a web comic works too c: I'm not planning to start it for years though.. getting history down, backstories, how characters interact, etc..

Omg I would pay to read another good webcomic...Okay, maybe not pay, per se.

It's too difficult to draw for me. i like to write stories instead and make lore, but good luck with the webcomic

Who says mine would be any good? XD Some things I've alluded to said comic are here in my OrP And so far it's proven to be.. well good, in my opinion, but I don't think I could get an audience for it.

Concession and Better Days are definitely the ones that came to mind when I saw the thread title. I liked Better Days back in my hurrdurr new to the fandom heydey years back, but now I see the political wanking and lack of character depth.

As far as Concession goes, I remember a friend linking me to it, and I read it and thought it was okay until that black wolf had tentacles coming out of his back as he planned to kill some preacher. There are a few ways to make me stop viewing or reading something pretty quickly, and thats to make a character that is utterly "insane" and is just crazy crazy crazy kill kill kill. (Tip: "crazy" people don't realize that they're "crazy"), make a character stupidly evil out of nowhere, or have an "LOL XD RANDOM" character.

But, on a different note, Cheap Thrills is the bomb-diggity.

I never even heard of any of these god damn comics. Concessions I am aware of but I never read web comics with much dedication. I can count the amount read on my hands Pride of Bahgdad, Mice Templar, Lackidasiy, Mouse guard, Cruelty and Dog Days of Summer.

Nice video, I never usually can sit through robotic talk but damn that was just funny as hell. Has this supposed artist/writer interacted with anyone outside the internet? Christ it's like this is how he imagines "normal" people must act. Though I don't understand 'fan service' Is that just doing something cause people like it?
