CODE RED: PORN
(STRONG NSFW WARNING)

The following comic contains naughty parts on full display, and more than likely includes banging, screwing, porking, jacking, etc. Whether or not it's actually arousing is up for debate. Be on the look out for more extreme fetishes as well, such as scat, vore, bestiality, and so forth. Getting caught with this comic in your browser history may lose you some friends... or gain you some unwanted ones. View with extreme caution, preferably in a deep, dark cave, far away from anyone you know.

Rating Summary
Art [no stars given]

A limited set of copy-pasted line pictures of figures, and word balloons. That's all there is, no backgrounds or anything.

Storyline:

Not applicable, as this is a series of gags.

Characters: [no stars given]

A monstrous father named "Tad", plus his wife and kids who he does horrible things to, as well as a black policeman he insults.

Miscellaneous Details: [no stars given]

The forum and guestbook links no longer work. I wonder if this webcomic ever had an audience?

Overall: [no stars given]

The webcomic goes for ultra-cheap shock humor, but it repeats itself so often that it ends up becoming very boring very quickly.



Background

It was brought up on the BWW forum. Just reading a little bit convinced me this was review-worthy.

Downfall

Can this thing ever go up?

Story and Plot

Not applicable, as this is a series of gags.

Art review

One of the less sick ones.


The webcomic consists entirely of a limited domain of copy-pasted line drawings of Tad, his wife, his son, his daughter, a bald child, and a black policeman, and very few other images. Sometimes the drawings are modified, but most of the time it's the same pictures with a variety of word balloons.

Writing review

Most of the jokes are about Tad having done something awful, or about to do something awful, to his wife or, far more often, his son or daughter. Less often, there is a black policeman whom he calls "nigger" or otherwise insults, and sometimes there are children talking to one another, usually about horrible things happening to them.

Author biography

I don't know who the author is, and I don't want to know.

Conclusion

Can sick humor be funny? Possibly.

But jokes don't work because they are gross or silly or random. They work because they are clever. But this webcomic has no wit or cleverness to it. The idea is that the webcomic depicts a shocking idea (implicitly rather than graphically), such as Hal beating his wife or kids, raping children, or calling a black policeman "nigger", and the audience is supposed to laugh at that. Trouble is, the author uses the same jokes over and over again ad nauseum.

Even this sort of thing might work if it were presented in some sort of clever way. But this is just a series of copy-pasted pictures, sometimes with modifications. And that gimmick gets old fast too.

The author sounds like a kid who wants to show off how offensive and edgy he can be. Instead, once you get past the initial shock value, the webcomic very quickly descends into repetition and banality.
