Rating Summary

Art: Wiki.png

Early on it actually looks quite nice... but it goes downhill FAST after a while.

Storyline: Wiki.png

The comic seems confused about whether it wants to be a gag-a-day comic, or have small story arcs

Characters: Half.png

A jar filled with rancid donkey cum would have better characterization than what's in this comic

Miscellaneous Details: Half.png

It is quite amazing that a comic can have lasted for so long, without ever really having told a story

Overall: Wiki.png

This is a very bad comic. It is bad for so many reasons... oh so many reasons...



Background

As it has happened before, a comic got mentioned on the forum for being bad but then we forgot about it. webkilla then came across it again almost a year later and went "Hold up, isnt' there a review of this? No? Ok, let's get cracking"

Downfall

The first two pages of the comic encapsulates quite perfectly what could have made the comic great - and what made it shit. See plot and writing section for details.

Story, Plot and writing

Ok, yall remember Least I Could Do - the comic about a manchild mary sue douche who constantly somehow gets laid, then 'grows up' to become a married manchild douche mary sue who is endlessly wealthy, and still gets away with insane shit because lol-rich and lol-random gags.

This comic is... more or less that, just with a female main character. The two first pages sets it up perfectly: A random pink-haired game-dev woman makes a monstergirl-fucking game earning endless amounts of money - and suddenly doesn't know what to do.

Now, if this was a good comic, it could delve into the modern challenges of the newly rich - how friends become leeches, how hollow and fake the "rich community" is, how difficult it is finding anyone to truly have a friendship with... let alone a romantic relationship with - people around her just want her money and whatnot.

Of course, if this comic was good - I wouldn't be writing this review. No, instead the comic shows the pink-haired main character Izzy Pritchard start spending her money to do insane shit like dumping buckets of whale-cum off an urban highrise down onto random passersbyers.

Basically, this comic almost instantly turns into "Garry's mod but in reality, because endless money" - be it covering the offices of Time Magazine in feces to unleashing hyenas on people and having the hyena eat them alive. Basically, lol-random gag-a-day shit of the most crass sort. And I mean really fucking crass. Honestly, not even Least I Could Do went as low as having the main character offer random people money for sex. It's pretty much all just sex, drugs, alcohol, gross-out jokes with copious amounts of animal jizz and other infantile shit that makes less and less sense. It'll show some blood, but not gore, and all naughty naked shit gets pixelated (but you can get the full on nsfw shit on the artist's patreon)

Early on in the comic it seemed almost self-aware of how fucked up it was, but even years later it still stuck to the "lol-random rich druggie woman with big tits doing stupid shit and not giving a damn" schtick. How about getting to a food fight with a moon-shaped-faced pizza pocket hustler?. Random shit that makes no sense, and in no way encourages the reader to give a fuck.

So ya... basically, early on the writing was fairly spot on for a gag-a-day comic about a newly rich idiot doing lol-random shit, but later on... it's just weird faces and weird non-sensical gags that aren't even funny. It's like pointing and laughing at a spastic retard that keeps falling over, yet looking up each time smiling like a champ. It's hard not to crack a smile at it, but its mostly out of pity.

Character growth is replaced by introducing the occasional new character, with older ones quickly being forgotten if the cartoonist wants to go off on a new strange and likely drug-fueled tangent. The characters do not care for each other, they care more about drugs than reality, it's apparently ok to make fun of people with cripling phobias, nor does the comic care for making sense. To this end, none of the characters are likable, nor relatable. It's assholes doing asshole bullshit.

Now, see that last comic page linked? Do you think that the green-haired joker is some kind of nemesis? That the next couple of pages will be a bareknuckle fist/food fight? Nope - it's gag-a-day bullshit, so its completely forgotten on the next page, which has nothing to do with the previous one. The comic is incredibly whiplashy in tone that way around, going from drug-humor to really lame sex jokes, to friends walking on the beach chatting all nicely. There is no singular tone to the comic!

...because after that "pasketti" page, there is legit a six page mini-arc about two girl hanging out in a mall... with some kind of eldritch insane older sister terrorizing them? wut? This comic, it is on crazy pills, and that's not really a good thing.

I mean, for fuck's sake, we get the line "I was eating Izzy out while she ate in apology for joy-buzzing her butthole" - it's as if this shit was written by horny 9gaggers who just mashed whatever drug and sex jokes together they could find on reddit, and then made a comic about it. Compare to a comic like Stonetoss which is well known, and by SJWs reviled, for being supremely edgy. This comic is NOT edgy. Oh sure, it has gross-out humor, jokes about alcoholism and drugs, random eldritch weirdness - but its never edgy. It never makes any truly edgy points or statements.

Of course, most of the fans of the comic are probably just there for the nudity and sex jokes.

Art

As noted earlier, then initially the art style of the comic was simple, but it fit the gag-a-day theme. You weren't in doubt what kind of expressions were on show, and it worked well for the visual gags and gross-out humor. It's also clear that the artist knows their way around lighting and shadows, making for quite visually pleasing artwork.

This is sort of funny, at least for the first few times this kind of gag is used]

However, later the art gets a lot more complex and artsy, with shit like this:

Surprise butt-sex?, nope not even in the least...]

It is, to put it mildly, rather jarring when faces like that start getting tossed around - but I guess the artist thinks they're funny? Basically, as the complexity and level of detail increased, it started to serve the visual gags less and less. Sure, actually seeing all the beer bottles that the alcoholic rich idiot has gathered up fits with the 'story', but... it just feels as if what little energy there used to have been spent on the writing started to go entirely into the artwork.

I mean, shit like this looks really nice - it does - but... a few pages after that the rich idiot has bought her own private island nation or lame no-effort gags like this which feel like they were written like a five year old, but illustrated by a professional artist. And unlike Axe-Cop, it's neither funny or good, when its just random crap about what hotdogs may or may not be made out of.

Another issue that the art has, especially once the art got "better" was that the faces started to go from 0 to 100 in intensity at the drop of a fucking hat. Sure, one of the characters (the cap-wearing artist guy) has a running gag about always being tired, but spilling ink on yourself and looking as if he's screaming about his nuts having been shotgun'd... it just doesn't fit. Basically as time goes on in the comic shit gets more and more exagerated, often way beyond what the visual gags can explain away. hell, sometimes these really weird tonal shifts are the foundations for the page gags... which in the opinion of this review is more often miss than hit.

Artist

No clue who Doctorglasgow is. Don't really care. The joker's online art gallery page (see the Links section) demonstrates that we're actually dealing with a competent artist - so how the fuck lunacy like this gets made... no clue


Cumclussion

Usually I would put a comic on blast really hard, if I can see wasted talent. Doctoglasgow is without a doubt a talented artist - but... as a comic writer? At least the writing in Least I Could Do is fairly consistent theme-wise. In this comic it is amazingly random, makes no fucking sense, and from one page to the other you might be mistaken to think that you're reading an entirely different comic.

Basically, this comics fails as a gag-a-day comic because the jokes miss far more often than they hit, especially once the art starts getting weird, which causes the visual gags and puns to go out the window. The writing.... the writing was never good, and it arguably only got worse. This is the kind of comic where you're not really sure if the cartoonist is regularly on drugs, or just mildly insane.

At the time of this writing, the patreon for the comic had 199 patrons - most of which are likely at the 5$ range, where you get access to the uncensored comics. That's about a grand a month for cranking out insane bullshit. Fucking magical.

Basically, the artist should stop making a comic and just crank out porn on his patreon - it's clearly the only thing his fans actually want, because I refuse to believe anyone is reading this crap for the plot.
