    The games and journalism thing was observed to have a good starting point when something happened involving mountain dew, Doritos, and a famous game tied to both for the sake of web hits.

    However, they started with a free text game made by a woman capable of attracting a mate.

    The joke :/ this comic presents falls flat because we have not seen someone rejecting their fan base because the base didn't "get it," but instead have seen comment sections and forums become echo chambers and incubators for the worst the internet had to offer.

    I wonder how you'd do layout for something like that

    If I were less lazy I could download the PDF version I got awhile back

    But I'd rather just wait for my hardcover copies to show up

    one of the things OPM is actually lampooning is the practice of voting on favourites in manga (specifically things like shounen jump rankings sometimes affecting which characters get more page-time)

    the set-up for the hero league which would theoretically be based around power levels and competence, but is instead heavily affected by popularity, politics and in-fighting is pretty much pointing and laughing at this practice

    Twitter is what you get if you give an infinite number of monkeys infinite opportunity to express themselves after taking an infinite amount of "legal highs" and eating a lot of poorly refridgerated spicy food.

    Reading Bakuman was pretty interesting for all the things that I learned about how manga is actually made. It also made some plot decisions in long-lasting storylines, um, not make sense as such, but at least there was a reason that they might have happened that way.
    the entire second half of Death Note, for instance

    yeah, bakuman was a hugely popular insight into the making of manga and anime

    but the funniest bit is that due to its popularity, there's been a surge in that self-referential genre; there's now a bunch of manga about making manga

    i kinda wonder if the webcomic industry might start doing the same thing, or if it would still be seen as being too masturbatory

    too masturbatory for webcomics ?

    Yeah, Shirobako helped keep that going; it did pretty well in sales if I remember correctly.

    Vox Something Or Other
    Motherboard merely joins a raft of sites which have, over the last couple years, removed the ability for users to comment on their articles. It’s funny; the first thing I did was scroll to the bottom of the page to see what people thought about it. There was no comment section there, which I probably should have guessed. Force of habit.

    Comments are what they are. “Don’t read the comments” is a phrase you have heard, and perhaps used. Sometimes people say that it’s not enough to say “don’t read the comments” and then they read the comments and get super angry, which, I mean, I don’t know. You tell me if that’s a good life strategy.

    I go to the comments not to find consensus but literally to find people criticizing the article. I want to see the idea of that article discussed. I am not of the opinion that most articles I see are very good; and even if they were, they’re not scripture. For me they’re like the sausage casing that contains the actual food, which is the community processing the data. Independent of any other consideration, just at a lower level of magnification, I don’t think we get smarter this way. I don’t think we achieve robustness just rolling around in a bunch of ideologically hermetic spheres.

    You don’t have to have comments on in order to be a good person. I don’t have comments on my posts, for example, and I’m an incredible person. The only reason there is a newspost at all is that I wrote the first website by hand, and the page looked really crazy with a big empty cell on the left of the navigation stuff so I put text in there. I should have just stacked the UI in two rows and saved myself a lot of trouble. I’ve written hundreds of thousands of words now and gotten in huge trouble and it could all have been avoided. A public diary is an incredibly dangerous instrument.

    So, comments are not required, as I said. I don’t think you’re obligated to donate the footer of your article to people that hate you. Adding comments to our strip page - when everyone else was removing such things - was certainly a conversation. But here’s what I would say: having them and then taking them away is strange. And trying to present the fundamentally censorious act as being of a piece with greater communication is simply a lie. You aren’t supposed to call people liars; it’s one of those things you aren’t supposed to do. It seems like a rule cooked up by liars, frankly. But what if a person dissembles madly, and writhes rhetorically, in the service of a goal oblique to their stated aims? I see no reason to invent another word.

    (CW)TB out.

    Sounds like it'll be plenty masturbatory then, at least for the main character

    I hope it never gets to sexy times. It will look like it, might seem like it, but I want it to get to the end and they're war comrades but not lovers.

    I really like Speed-'o-Sound Sonic, but yeah Licenseless Rider is the true hero of the story. JUSTICE TACKLE is one of the best moments in the entire comic.

    Fubuki and King are also great. Tatsumaki's also pretty neat, but she's also really mean so doesn't get top billing.

    I think I like most of the characters, though, in some way or another. There's even some good ones that we haven't seen much of yet, like Garou!


    Oh yeah, and in the remake Metal Bat is pretty damn good. Those filler chapters may be filler but damn if they don't add something.

    Calling removing comments from one's website and telling them to use Twitter instead a "fundamentally censorious act" and "no other word except liars" is one of the most head-up-ass things I've ever read and I've been reading Jerry's writing for like ten years.
