To you. But if you're trying to convince me that the last one was "way better", you can stop immediately.

Here's the thing: if you're going to make negative criticism, you should point out what you think is bad or poorly done or not funny, so that I can actually learn something from your comment. Otherwise, if you just say "this is not funny", I'm not learning anything else than your opinion on the strip, which, while it's still something, isn't very relevant to me, at least not unless you explain. I don't need explanations from people who found it funny because I already know why, since I went for that funny thing they liked, and if they liked something less obvious, they usually point it out.

I also think there's more to a cartoon than just being funny. In this cartoon, I wanted a diagonally split square, so I thought of a staring contest. I also used my recent Greek knowledge (these are real Greek letters, and they spell something), and the whole combined with Tourette's sounded hilarious to me, as it did to others.

Things I like about this strip:

- Gwen is telling the story as we see it unfold before us, without hearing their words, which is like a scene in a movie with a voice over and all the characters muted. I like that little narrative effect and I thought it was funny to see Stanley point towards the sky in that proud manner, since we can only imagine what he's really saying.

- I like the diagonally split square of gazing tension, it's not a usual device I use for AA; so that's a little evolution on my part.

- A scholar with Tourette's cursing at people in Greek - well, that alone would make the strip worth my while.

- The Death Face. I thought it was hilarious on Stan's part to think he's all that scary, so much as to give titles to his own facial expressions of doom.

While I like pleasing my audience, I don't base my work on whether they like it or not, but on whether I like it or not. If I like it, at least I am sure that people who are like-minded will like it too, and I'm sorry for those who won't like it, but it's ok, you can't please everyone every time. Don't take this personally, but just knowing that you disliked something I made doesn't really interest me all that much, not unless you develop your negative criticism a bit, so that I can get a new perspective on my work, and maybe improve.

You say this one is not good or funny, fine, but tell me what made you think that, so I can trace your reasoning and impressions down to what may be something to improve. Thank you.

are u mad at me???????????
u souldn`t be.

i am not telling u to change it, i didn`t say it was crap, i was just stating that i found the last one more personal appealing to myself.

Besides, the way the text is written is good, the drawings are good. i just didn`t catch the funniness of it.
(your explanation before was helpfull to get the details.)

But of course, a good comment it would be like saying all technical stuff and what i disliked in technicality and all.....but i had run out of things to say contrutively, so i just went and said that i like the other one better, so you can have some personal feed back of mine. Because if i dont like it, probably there are people that disagree, as i said it was a personal choice of mine.As if i like one, and i don`t say why i liked it, but wrote on comment just "t`was funny, i liked it", you should get frustrated for those comments too.

but i got it, i`ll say next time what i dont like in it more detailed so you can do something about it.

But on this one, it really was cause i found the latter funnier and i got difficulty in accepting the kind of humor in this one.
just plain and simple that.

"As if i like one, and i don`t say why i liked it, but wrote on comment just "t`was funny, i liked it", you should get frustrated for those comments too."

In fact, I explained this in my previous comment. When people just say "I found this funny", I usually know what they found funny, because that was what I meant to do: make it funny, and so, since it was the plan, I know what it is that's funny, and I don't need to be told. On the other hand, when my strip fails to be what I wanted it to be, as in unfunny, then I don't know what the viewer thought exactly. That's why I don't get frustrated at simple comments like "I liked it" or "This is funny".

And I'm not mad, I just think you're a cocky person, and I shared my feelings and thoughts with you as bluntly and as honestly as you did. I can't please everyone every time with those strips. I do my best and try to improve, and I can only be sorry if people don't like them.

But it won't be the first thing I make you think is not funny! Remember Dwayne's hair? You didn't think that was funny, but I still think it's hilarious haha. We just have different senses of humour, and since I'm the one making the strip, well I'm bound to make stuff you won't like as much as I do. It's ok, it can't be any different.

I understand also that you may not always know why something is not funny or good and that you can't explain it in further detail. I accept that.

Wait for another sucky strip tomorrow!
