Penders is a fascinating case study of what happens when a guy gets too wrapped up in his own contributions to a fandom. Does he have a right to get pissed off at/sue Archie in order to get the royalties he's owed on printed materials? Sure, and good luck. Does he have a hope in hell of wrestling back his stable of echidnas for his own """original""" graphic novel? Ah ha ha, no.

A saner man would cut his losses (not that they were his to begin with) and get to work on some material that's *actually* original. Then again, I hear he tried that and got nowhere. He's probably counting on his old fans to buy his echidna comic trainwrecks, should they come into fruition.

I remember when I was a kid, my sister had some New Kids on the Block comics. I just happened to be looking through them one day (for purely ironic reasons of course) and was struck by how bad the art was. Even as a kid who loved any kind of comics and really had no idea about artwork, everything seemed just seemed ugly and...off.

http://i.imgur.com/r5oE2.jpg

GUYS ITS THEIR FIRST SPACE ADVENTURE!

Look at the New Kids still in the space rocket. Where...where are they keeping the rest of their bodies? Did NASA saw them each off at the waist so they could cram into the shuttle? I just don't know.

Here's another offending cover. (http://i.imgur.com/7tvgu.jpg)

This one...this one actually kind of makes me laugh. (http://i.imgur.com/m6ZNH.jpg) The New Kid that's pulling the sexy pose while riding on the CD had me in stitches. I don't know why.

Comic covers tend to be the best artwork in the book. I'm pretty sure their insides were full of absolute abominations.

I remember having a field day when the art was on-model and decipherable for once. And even so I have Direct Editions of everything, issues and super specials, from the introduction of Nate Morgan alllll the way until Sonic returned from space and broke up with Sally.

Why do kids have such bad taste-control? Not bad taste per se; I'm talking about "This art sucks and this story sucks and I wish they'd do something more substantial than a five-second punch or this vaporous soap opera bs" while you're re-upping your subscription every year and reading it for the first time.

This clearly isn't the case for Sonic comics, but have any of you ever worked on licensed character art (maybe Nich has some insight here, too)? I've done it a couple times, and since practically every line has to be approved by executives, it can be hard to get good art from any kind of licensed product.

I was working with someone who was doing art for comics based on several properties from different media studios (WB, Dark Horse), and his excellent, funny art would get back so many notes that the end hardly never looked like what he originally drew, and was so frustrating he stopped taking on work from those companies. Just a little bit of behind-the-scenes perspective (but obviously a lot of licensed art is done by less-skilled artists who aren't paid a lot and have insanely tight schedules).

The great thing is that Archie Sonic, before it got good, (http://www.gamespite.net/talkingtime/showpost.php?p=1256688&postcount=5034) clearly didn't have any standards of any kind and they went and did what you've just described anyway (http://amomentofarchiesonic.tumblr.com/post/16183273477/on-the-subject-of-dawn-best) because Ken Penders.

Good gawd now I remember it was because Sally was throwing a bitchfit over the fact that Sonic would rather fight the most murderous tyrant incarnation of Robotnik yet instead of play anime high school with her.
Bra-fucking-vo for making Princess Sally into the exact opposite of what every Sonic fan likes her for in the first place.
Seriously: Sonic has just returned to Mobius after a year in space. A year that the Mobians have spent fighting bloody world war with Dr. Robotnik. Literally the entire planet against the ambition of one man who has been able to take large swaths of territory from them, force massive casualties, and turn Antoine into a stone-cold stoic. And we're supposed to take it as childish that Sonic would rather "play adventure boy" by fighting against the biggest threat to life on this planet because he's the only Mobian who's ever been able to get results against the Eggman.

I can't believe for a second that anyone involved in Sega's licensing department was reviewing the deformed monstrosities that passed through Archie's pages and signed off on them as okay.

Oh, yeah, no, obviously not. I was thinking more along the lines of the Zelda page that was posted. Which is to say that not ALL bad licensed art is the result of a hack artist, always, but that a lot of meddling tends to happen in those kinds of processes. Looking at the Zelda page, I can almost see where the artist got the original artwork back with sections of it circled in red, like a teacher grading a homework assignment.

Yep, there's the problem.

No seriously. I honestly think showing the friend of a friend the difference between aspiring to be famous and aspiring to be an artist would be enough to open him to criticism and proper self-improvement, if he's able to consider the question seriously and come to the conclusion himself instead of rejecting it outright from that survival instinct that self-crippling pride tends to have. In the meantime, your work is your work, and no matter how critically regarded or green and sensitive you happen to be, your work necessarily has to be exposed to criticism.

Something bugs me about this. Something hurts me in the soul about this comic.

The art, while pretty bad, is unremarkably bad*. Everyone's favorite howlers from professionally published stuff are at least unique enough to make (http://amomentofarchiesonic.tumblr.com/tagged/Ken-Penders) a name (http://www.progressiveboink.com/archive/robliefeld.html) for certain artists as saints of bad art. This? There's no gaffes that grip me . . . in any way, really. It's just an undifferentiated mass of generic art from a fan of manga and/or anime. There's nothing in the plot or the dialogue that makes this memorably bad! There's no character or uniqueness in the art mistakes that would make me bring this comic up in any other situation! Here is an amateur (and I emphasize the root of that word in the Latin for "love") work from a young human being who is clearly capable of loving and dreaming, and it's going to melt into an amorphous blob in my head by the time I forget that I made this post (i.e. next week).

How is this possible? How can so many individual human beings putting their earnest effort into making each their own personal work produce so very nearly the exact same look, feel, plot, and dialogue as each other? If there's any more than academic differences between this and most other manga-wannabe, I have stubbornly refused to see them because I am a monster. But god damn, that colored first page in the post. Aside from the general fact of its appearing lazy in design, not even execution, I physically cannot find anything in it to criticize or to distinguish this comic.

*-Of course, that doesn't change the fact that it definitely belongs in this thread.

That might be because the comic has no goddamn flow. I'm serious, I'm looking at it and it's not obvious how any of panels are supposed to fit together. It's like, how badly do you have to screw up at sequential art to ruin the temporal sequence of your comic? Plenty of lesser (okay, so it's more "equal to") comics artists have handled this well; is this just one of those harder-than-it-looks things?

Which is funny, because it's just like something from my Japanese mangas, haha!

This is apparently his exact attitude on comics in general. I'm also told he refuses to even attempt to draw in a different style, he's been drawing since his freshmen year in high school and hasn't improved at all (he's in his late twenties).

I feel this demonstrates the tragic consequences of basing your entire art style on Tokyopop books without without bothering to learn any of that boring stuff like "anatomy", "perspective", and...and...

what's wrong with her faaaaaaace?

Seriously, what is that? Did he just fill in an area accidentally and decide to leave it? Also is that character supposed to be an amputee?

There's a real laziness and lack of craft in this comic that's just depressing, from the sloppily airbrushed textures to the digitally resized comic sans text. For the artist to've made it all the way into adulthood without having taken on board any criticism at all suggests a level of arrogance bordering on blind stupidity.

So are they like... trying to replicate a bad scanlation team literalizing puns and stuff? Because the text is about as incoherent as the art.

A good number of word balloons are vertical, as though they were originally meant for Japanese (forcing him to compress his text to fit) and there's some "cutesy" footnotes. So yes.

I can't get past how annoying the placeholder people in the first couple of panels are. Every other shortcut --even the blob people-- is just laziness, but the blue and pink placeholders are actually offensive.

Koco Koga– Age 16: Daughter to a drunk fisherman, Koco is one of the sweetest girls anyone will meet, but she also has a dark side that gives her the nickname “Crab Daughter”, or “Crab Girl”. She’s so cute and innocent that a lot of guys ask her out on dates, but because of her drunk father she turned into a man hater. Every time a guy asks her out she turns sour and she ends up “snapping” back at the poor fellow, thus the name Crab Girl. Her hair style also looks like a crab claw. She is Fiji’s best friend and they are together most of the time in the comic.

That comic was the visual equilivent of eating a potato chip with a bubble in it so big that the chip is effectively entirely hollow.

So in other words, you had some Munchos?

Man, this is why I never show you guys my own comics... I'm keenly aware of the cornholing that would result. I don't think people who don't draw well should be excluded from drawing at all... it's a fun hobby regardless of your skill, and you can't improve if you don't keep drawing.

Having said that, I wouldn't pay for a comic like that. I've had my fill of faux-nime, and and that's not even some of the better stuff I've seen. I have more tolerance for technically deficient artwork than most- when you grow up on a steady diet of Garfield and Peanuts that tends to happen- but I just don't see that comic going anywhere. High school isn't a very exciting setting, and I'm not given any indication that there will be twists that will bring life to it. Tell your friend to come up with a better story; something that will keep the reader turning pages rather than reaching for a Zippo.

Peanuts was funny and clever, but I never got the impression that Charles Schulz could reach beyond the artwork presented in them.

When I see anime, I often think of fanservice-fueled artwork with predictable expressions (round white eyes with eyebrows slanted at perfect diagonals? Golly, never saw that before) and stories that spin their wheels. Of course, that's not the reality- there are Japanese cartoons and comics that distinguish themselves with unique styles and gripping stories- but it's the perception.

It's also the direction Western artists go when they try to imitate it. I'm looking at the Pencilworks image you'd linked to and I want to put a fist through my monitor, in the hope that it will somehow reach the artist. It's not bad from a purely technical point of view, but lord, I've seen so much of it in video games and television shows over the last decade. It's anime at its most stereotypical, with flat faces, hubcap eyes, ornate clothing, and the dreaded shiny knees and elbows. No mas, no mas!

Peanuts was funny and clever, but I never got the impression that Charles Schulz could reach beyond the artwork presented in them.
The artwork in Peanuts is great, though. It's sparse and simple, sure, but that's not the same as unskilled or deficient. He's able to achieve a level of expression with his characters using very few lines which is pretty difficult to pull off.

He was also insanely disciplined with his linework. I remember reading in an interview somewhere (I'll have to try and find it later) about him competing with other artists to see who could draw the smallest parallel lines, such that the space between the lines was smaller than the lines themselves. When you're working in a more simplistic style, each mark matters, and a stray mark in Peanuts would harm it more than a stray mark in the more detailed Calvin and Hobbes.

Compare Schulz's work to, say, Scott Adams, someone who chose a simplistic style because he didn't want to try very hard. The difference between Dilbert and Peanuts is very stark.

I like Peanuts well enough; I read the comics and watched the specials on CBS all the time when I was a kid. I just didn't think the artwork was a highlight of the franchise... it always seemed like it was more about characterization, and the artist's observations about life. Peanuts was the first time I remember anyone complaining about the commercialization of Christmas, which was an odd grievance to air in a cartoon, but something that nevertheless needed to be said.

I don't have a problem with Peanuts... I just don't think the comic was a feast for the eyes. You may be right that Schulz was a disciplined artist (anyone who does a daily comic pretty much has to be) and that minimalism was a part of Peanuts' charm, but I personally liked that Watterson was able to work in that style and move beyond it when warranted.

What blows my mind about The Atarian is the massive amount of ignorance as to how video games are actually made (which probably shouldn't be a surprise; Jack Tramiel hated them and bought Atari for its computer division) and the revisionist history on display. Er, make that revisionist current events.

While it could be argued that Nintendo used dirty tricks to hold onto its industry leadership, Atari was so far behind them and so antiquated and so unfocused on competing that they had little chance of catching up, even if Nintendo hadn't locked its licensees into exclusivity contracts. Nintendo didn't have to sabotage them. They didn't even need to acknowledge them. They barely recognized Sega's existence until Sonic the Hedgehog... Atari wasn't even a blip on their radar.

There were enough sour grapes in this comic to fill a vineyard, and it was even less factually grounded than a Rick Santorum speech. It brazenly flies in the face of every bit of information available from the late 1980s... it would be like standing on a soapbox and shouting, "Housing insulation tastes just like cotton candy!" or "Germany won both World Wars!" at anyone who will listen. I mean, the artwork itself is pretty weak, but good lord, the message it's pushing is so much worse, and infuriating on so many levels.

I think it's because sequential art requires someone to put in enough effort for there to be other, similar images before and/or after the Worst Image in question. You can really go for broke in a single piece of fanart! But a really bad sequence of images can actually be much, much worse and far more disturbing/hilarious. You have to be really dedicated to maintaining a certain level of don't-give-a-shit and/or whoasome bonkers for the duration. For instance, remember that one fan comic based on Star Fox Adventures.

I remember how hyper-cartoony the comic looked whenever the Turtles met the bovine interdimensional portal, Cowlick. As the name suggests, this floating cow's head would lick you to take you to different worlds. I guess with a scenario like that, you'd have to make the comic look ridiculous.

Wasn't most of the Archie stuff done through Mirage, as well?

A good chunk of it, at least. Not sure on specials and such.

But some of that is covered here (http://tmntentity.blogspot.ca/2011/08/whatever-happened-to-forever-war.html), along with how we were denied the end to one of my favorite versions of TMNT ever.

On that note, I urge those who'd like to see The Forever War follow one of the instructions at the bottom of that post. I really would love for that old universe to have some closure...

Octo, why did you put Stardust in the Turrible thread?

It's like I don't even know you anymore.

The follow-up to that book is You Shall Die By Your Own Evil Creation
I have this book but, honestly, I am too damn scared of what lurks within it to even open it.

The best part of Fletcher Hanks is that one villain's origin story that consists of an entire jungle beating a guy's ass for months on end.

I posted it once but that was years ago.

Well, to be fair, I don't quite know how easily one can draw a passionate kiss with faces shaped like that.

So, is she like Medusa or something, and has actual tentacles growing out of her skull? Because bangs of hair, no matter how thick, shouldn't be cybernetic.

Maybe it's a cyberpunk fascinator? She and Knuckles are on their way to the Kentucky Derby... in Space.
