Also is a fail is this comic I written, http://www.bitcoinweekly.com/comics/the-gavinator

There are time when we succeed massively or fail massively. I believe this time we failed big time. I was told this comic is totally bad, and I agree with this assessment. (Don't you see? Our humor is mostly "crushing our hated enemy", the gubernment)

So, I am gathering more feedbacks and comments.

Don't quit whatever it is you do besides creating utter shite like I just wasted my eyesight on...

It's not very nice to shit on someone's genuine effort to improve his works, no matter how terrible it is.

I don't mean to crap on your work, it certainly has technical merit in its style, but what do you take away from reading it other than a pat on your back delivered by your own hand? A bad story written in beautiful prose is still a bad story.

For the record, my favourite web-comic is The Perry Bible Fellowship (example).

Also, it's worth noting that XKCD is often of poor quality IMO.

I just read all comics all the way back to "Bitcoin Mascots," and all of my negative opinion about bitcoin aside, I'm honestly embarrassed by proxy through what I've just read.

Just....no.

Not sure what you mean, but I thought it was terrible. Granted, I didn't write this. I also would like to mention that the Gavinator comic is also a fail.

What would be constructive feedback?

Telling you to make something that isn't completely stupid, instead?

If you're around the age of 10 or suffer from some type of cognitive disability I sincerely apologize, but if you're anywhere near or past the generally accepted age of adulthood and of "sound mind" you need a reality check.

I mean why not just draw a silly face with "OMG BITCOIN IS AWESOME." as the caption?

Would save you the trouble of having to craft such asinine "plots."

Well, rank comics from least funny to most funny. Maybe that will tell me something.

Just as funny or more funny than those comics I see in the papers. I've yet to see anyone come up with anything more funny than yours about BTC.

Needs some work.  I prefer the really witty/technical stuff, like xkcd.

Look kiba, obviously you're attention whoring and looking for approval on material you already know is shit.  Your coy self deprecation in the OP makes this clear.

If you're looking for a hearty circle-jerking all over your irritated creative gland, I can direct you to an appropriate forum in a PM.

That's nice you appreciate my comics. But that doesn't tell me anything unless Bitcoin Weekly comics are all equally funny to you.
