    I'm pretty sure you don't follow too many webcomics.

    xkcd, Cyanide and Happiness, Toothpaste for Dinner, and the Perry Bible Fellowship all have popularity that isn't based on the quality of their drawings...

    Yes, and what does your comic have in the story? A random girl moaning and whining, and that's about it. It's lots of borderline unreadable text about a character whining about their life, but we, the reader never see anything, it's all just text and random talking heads that I can't even tell apart. And I can understand if you want to avoid the usual way of storytelling (show, don't tell) and be experimental, but do not expect that everyone else will automatically be fond of it.

    Not to mention most of the comics you mentioned have art that is fairly deliberately crude, whereas yours looks like you're trying something that you're skills just aren't good enough yet.

    Hahaha. Was it really necessary to go on with that bottom part of your post? This just makes you sound like a very embittered person, (which is ironic since you are criticizing a character for being the same way) rather than trying to provide a legitimate critique. I'm sure 99% of webcomic readers don't care whether the art in a webcomic they enjoy is 'deliberately' crude or purposefully that way.

    Yes, because you're here thinking that people are disliking your comic in reddit because of the site layout. And I'm not criticizing the character for being bitter, I'm criticizing your way of showing her bitterness. There's a difference.

    I'm shutting this down for now. One of the other staff can unlock it should they wish.

    Trisquel, nobody has to feel sorry for you. You have access to more advantages
    than billions of people around the world right now. I think the posts in this thread
    have said enough.

    Should you want more advice on your comic, create a thread in the critique section
    so we can help you improve it.

    Thanks.
