Incredibly Bad Comics Find Uber-Success on the Web











Webtoonists say button sales account for most of their income.

So while the newspapers continue to dwindle and old school newspaper cartoonists like me cry and moan and take xacto blades to their wrists, webcomics have millions of readers, who support their favorite comics by buying buttons. That's right, buttons! Business school grads could learn a thing or two about the profit potential of buttons from these comicspreneurs. What else do the webcomics have in common: they're really, really, incredibly bad. Check them out.

Personally I consider your work a webcomic. And also Tom Tomorrow, Matt Bors, etc.

Then you must do your patriotic duty and buy a T-shirt from each of us.

Ouch! That stuff is awful!
Some shitty "content provider," who was perhaps at one time a news reporter, tells cartoonists that they could "learn" something from less talented people.
Did I get that right?

XKCD is amazing. It's all about the writing, which speaks to the current generation of web-geeks.

The "art" is beside the point, obviously.

XKCD is amazing. It's all about the writing, which speaks strongly to the current net-savvy generation.

The art is beside the point, obviously.

as a throwaway laugh once in a while, some of the webcomix are OK, but to me, the drawing is non-negotiable. I'll stick to the good ones with the killer kartoon style: "Maakies" "Underworld" and (needless to say) "Troubletown"
