Thin Skinned - Ironic i say!

Beauty is Only. . .

Art - I liked the shading as it was kept consistent with the light from the monitor. Also, the backgrounds and set pieces were done well with good detail and I like Miranda interacting with the door frame in panel 1. Nice little touch including the line graph on the monitor as well.

Miranda's bug eyes were ok in panel one because she is angry/indignant about what was written about her. Also, her hand in panel 3 and 4 is ok because she is gesturing towards the screen, but seems a little disproportionate due to it being a little long.

Story - A nice strip as the combination of the internet and Miranda's ego would tend to be a bad thing.

With all the things we've seen from Scott though with comment pages and critic sites I imagined him (in cartoon form) saying "But I AM pretty"

Do it yourself it'll make you chuckle.

Only recently, did I notice that fans now have to pay $1.99/month to post comments on pvp's own forum.

I tried to ignore this...but I can't.

My apologies, to many innocent webcomic artists, for the crap I'm about to spill...

The true fans and sycophants should be outraged at this. The comic is free to read. But, your two-cents will cost you $2?!! WTF!! That will only affect 2 types of people.

1- The mindless ass kisser - who is completely willing to drop coin on a subsription to "Big-Buns Monthly" just to pucker up and worship SK for what has lately been mediocre work, AT BEST;

2- The author - who happily collects taxes from the peasants who are just too stupid to emigrate to a community of free-thinkers.

Now, this doesn't mean a thing to my wallet. But, isn't this just like a bank charging you money to make a deposit?

It's obvious that the budget crunch is hitting you web-comic artists pretty hard. More and more of you are hitting the road, doing Cons and such. That's really hard, and I empathize with you all.

But, can't you find another, less demeaning way to fish a dollar from you fan base?

Or, increase the quality of the content and/or press the marketing machine to new avenues?

Does paying to critique the artist come with a no-hissy guarantee?

SK has invited criticism many times, and claims to really appreciate it. Now, it seems, he's trying to set up a virtual carnival "dunking booth" of criticism/ass-kissery.

Wow...just, ...wow.

Yeah this comic gets funnier when you replace her with scott.

I challenge anyone with photoshop skills to replace Scott (3/23 was his last appearance) with Miranda in that last panel! :)

If it is done right i and many will laugh there ass off.

I will track down FSM to the ends of the Earth to post that if it is done.

Whoa, the Tuesday punchline was the first time I laughed out loud at PvP in a loooong time. Clever dialogue at the end. I hoped he would do something more clever, he did. Talk about raising your game.

Are you sure you copied the entire URL? It works for me.

Also, I wonder if there are people willing pay $1.99 a month for the opportunity to flame him.

R.W.McGee said...

We should let them know that they can flame him here for free, lol.
