You should look into the "Super Cross Forum Project" thread, so you can make some art for something I'd like to read.

EDIT: There we go. Now i see it. Post on tinypic or image shack. Blog links generally dont work.
Really do like the art though.
The joke falls really flat.
but I also dig what's going on with the art. You should look into the "Super Cross Forum Project" thread, so you can make some art for something I'd like to read.
I dig the style though. Don't care much for the writing or theme. It's identical to every other "two nerds" comic, except they're apparently martial artists for no relevant reason. That's not enough to separate it from the ocean of internet sludge.
I mean, it isn't "influenced" by penny arcade... it IS penny arcade. This could be any PA strip if you just plugged in Gabe and Tycho.
I think Scott Adams blog posting here might explain it fairly simply.
If you don't want to read it, let me summarize it.
Pick at least two to have a shot at being funny. More is better.
The first panel seem funny because I recognize the show (1) and a zombie detector with a compass is a bit clever (2) and a bit bizarre (3).
The second panel is sort of a bridge that carries on the first panel well, but the last panel doesn't deliver. My experience is that when 'contestants' do that they don't really get a lot of money, so it's not recognizable to me (which is the most important) and it's not really any of the other things.
He needs some more interesting way to get them to give him the money.
also I think what really hurts your writing more than anything is you are using swearing as a crutch. not the punchline or the progression or anything like that - though they are not up to snuff, but swearing needs to have a point to be funny.
@gamefacts - Totally and utterly true gaming facts on the regular!
Exactly why are they martial artists? Will there be fights and stuff down the track that will require an advanced fighting knowledge?
That guy is supposed to be black?
