Surfin' the Web dudes
Hello everyone! Today's update features some new fonts, I decided to take the advice of SFSA (I think that's the right name) and change up.

But why today you ask? Why in the middle of the flashback? That's 'cause of what else is updating! That's right, the cast page is being constructed as I speak, hopefully it'll be up sometime tomorrow. So, be on the look-out! I'll post a comic up to say when it's up. :D

in the back of my mind, something seems wrong about this episode compared to the others...

I don't know what, though...

Probably the font.

megafonzie, May 9th, 2008, 6:11 pm

it can't be that.

I like the font!

Maybe it's the water?

Seems more like the font then the water.

The "Chan" river? I knew it. /b/tards.

I sort of liked courier better for them. Just my opinion.

Maybe it's the lack of punch line...

you seem to think you need one in every comic, 'fro.

you definetly don't.

like, seriously, too many punchlines overpower the plotline, which HAS to come first.

as long as it moves the plot forward, it's fine.

jokes are extra.

adventure style comedies are excessively hard because of this. that's why I like sitcom style stuff.

it's way easier to write, because you can use more running gags, and more jokes.

take seinfeld, for instance. no large plots, except for a few double episodes, but that's a different story. anyways, with sitcom style, you can have a small thing, and build off from it. now, there are slapstick comedies, but those usually get bad ratings. we'll use napoleon dynamite as an example. it's just his adventures as a lowlife nerd (I especially like the scene where he attempts to jump the fence). then, you come into contact with shows like the simpsons. they start with a small thing, then something bad usually happens because of it, then the climax, then the end. it's all based on a frame. even watch a couple of episodes, if you don't beleive me. those kinds of things are easier to write for. adventure comedies have to use a plot, and add jokes in on the side.

it has to be balanced.

and hoorah for my longest comment ever on SJ.

Yeah well, I see your point. I really do. But I'm not much of a "running gag" type man, I come up with everything on the fly. There either has to be a punchline, character development, or a plotline advancement SOMEWHERE in the chapter, otherwise I'm not happy with it.

I could probably cut down on the punchlines, but that depends on what's going on in the present.

Also, I gotta know, where's this "Too many punchlines overpower the plotline" line come from? Is it experience? Picked it up from a forum? A person? It just seems so "intellectual", it had to have come from somewhere.

Though...I still don't necessarily get what you mean by "overpower" either...

Also, I loved Seinfeld.

I'm responding to you from the bottom of your comment up.

who didn't love seinfeld?

and by overpower, I mean that the storyline could be like, not even a part of the comic.

and about that "too many jokes yadda yadda yadda" thing, I know from personal experience. I read a lot of bad comics, and usually, the jokes don't have anything to do with the plot. it really annoys me.

now, I understand that you want jokes in the comic. that's fine. just try not to do a bunch in one comic, unless you're tying up a running gag, never to use it again. that I know from shyguy comic. I use WAY too many in it.

and I wasn't just talking aboot the running gags. using too many jokes makes the reader bored. let's use the first comic involving only sonic and tails here as an example. it had no relevance to the plot. and I'm betting you didn't gain any fans on that one, did you? then again, you might have, just because some n00b is a sonic fan. my point is that you need to think about the plot before the jokes.

...So did you figure out what was wrong yet?

megafonzie, May 10th, 2008, 2:29 pm

the weird thing is that I didn't.

I'm feeling a weird vibe from the last panel, though...
