A fair enough position, even if it's one I disagree with. :)

8) :lol:

Well, if you really want something else from me:

You idiot, didn't you read what i said. The fact that you can't see that they're just different, with one not better than the other is a true reflection of your intelligence. :smt013 :smt013 :smt013 :smt013 :smt013

Happy? :P :wink:

Cheap photoshop blurs and the dynamics of a filmstrip?

Why do animation 1/10th of the way? I'd rather read a book or watch a cartoon, not some clunky attempt at amalgamating the two for people with smartphones.

Oooh, the innovation is I have to click a button to see the next part of the panel?

Gimme a break.

The story itself is written exclusively for aging superhero fanboys, and the technological innovation is about what you'd expect some baby boomer yuppie to be dazzled by. This is the future of nothing.

Yeah, I think it's a great innovation because it controls what you see and when you see it. It prevents you from letting your eye drift ahead, and so it helps build greater suspense. I think for horror stories, in particular, this technique will be very useful.

You accuse me of not be able to read? Jesus, you come from a country where everyone's toothless and delirious from hockey injuries. If you can read at all, it's a communist language like French. :roll:

Say what you want about the French, they're better than the inbred, toothless hillbillies you have in the south of your country. :roll:

I think, like early video games decades ago that used this exact model with lower-res graphics, it just encourages you to click through to get to the next part, in a way incentivizing inattentive reading.

Although the one story on the site doesn't actually require that much attentiveness anyway. Yet another deconstruction of (yawn) Batman combined with an Eat It Grampa legion Robin.

For those not familiar with official Punchy Scale scoring...

10 = 12
9 = 11
8 = 10
7 = 1
6 = 0
5 = -1
4 = -2
3 = -3
2 = -4
1 = -5

If Insufferable was a thing it'd be Stephen Day's comic book store because it has nothing to recommend it over paying extra to travel to a decent store but at least you're not fishing your comics out of a creek or pond.

I have no scale, it's all arbitrary.

You guys are just way too harsh on everything.
