thanks for that Crystal, I mass uploaded them and thought I had the right information at the time. I guess I'll have to be more careful from now on.

UPDATE: I haven't forgotten about this, I can't scan my comics right now due to a virus on my scanning computer. All comics will be up as soon as I can manage.

you know, you may just be my #1 fan. You like my comic for what it is despite your own personal dislike for furries. I hold you in high regard for this and thank you.
Alright, That's Enough!
Hey you guys. You need to understand that we started this as a service to help the authors on SmackJeeves promote their comics on a first come first served basis, and while we do have some specific guidelines that need to be followed in order to receive a half decent review, we wont simply not review certain types of comics, that's discrimination and generally not nice.

We have multiple reviewers, each with their own opinions, and we ask everyone who requests a review to also request a reviewer. So if you have a sprite comic don't request someone who dislikes sprite comics, unless you're the masochistic type.

To make things clearer, I will gladly review sprite comics. I used to make one a long time ago when I couldn't draw that well, so I can understand the mentality behind choosing to do a sprite comic. Besides, you gotta understand, sprite comics aren't about the art, they're about the story. If the story isn't good, they don't have a leg to stand on.

and while I do agree that nothing will ever come from a fan comic of popular copyrighted characters, you gotta do what you enjoy. It's also good practice, and there's nothing wrong with that.

So please, don't hate on us for reviewing bad comics. Just pray the next comic we review doesn't suck.
while you're at it, think about adding Glover. he's what I thought Master hand was at first. You could even create a Master hand Tie-in for his back story, lol.
Runway
I got a comic for you to review.

Syas contacted me about reviewing her comic, Runway.

Review
I was asked by Ryank_119 to review his comic, George the Cat. After reading the whole thing, though, I really wish he hadn't. I couldn't get into this comic for the life of me. between the art, the plot, and the storytelling it was just all too confusing.

The plot of George the cat, as described by the author, goes as follows:

"In one day, George loses everything, now he's on a mission to take it back"

A more general description would have been better considering what actually goes on in the comic. It starts out with George playing Nintendo 64 with some of his friends. Cut to later on in the day where we see the group walking down the street when they are attacked by a robot with lasers. Apparently the robots are going around town and capturing the inhabitants of the city, Petcetra. So George runs off to the police station to report it, only no ones there. so he finds a gun and follows a robot back to the secret base. a gun battle ensues, to which he thanks the training he got from playing his N64... and George is captured. Whoever designed the building should be shot, because they put and escape hatch right in the prison cell, not to mention a chair, some rope, and a billy club. Everything you need to interrogate the person you drag down through the hatch, and what and interrogation it was. "What was that meeting about?" "Nothing!" "Too bad" KLUNK! now that he has a disguise he can escape so he forgets all about the escape hatch and chooses to attract the attention of another guard. "Somebody Help! That cat tricked me." knock out the guard, ditch the costume and find the captives, but OH NO! They're Brainwashed!! ... and now you know what happens in the first six pages. You can probably see why I lost interest rather quickly. George hasn't lost everything, everyone in town is being hunted and captured for completely unknown reasons. Also, why not put George in the same cell as the other prisoners? plot wise, this whole comic is a series of bad decisions, strung together with a character that has more balls than brains.

Now for the art. Now you always have to excuse the earlier comics, that's a general rule of thumb for everyone. but even 15 pages later, there's very little progression art wise. At one point there was a color page, but that's it. The most helpful change that was made was the layout. the earlier comic had this awful 12 panel layout in 3x4. Now it looks more like new age comic book page. which is a vast improvement. But the layout aside, the art is mediocre at best, the characters are all drawn the same way so at times it's hard to distinguish who the characters are.

The storytelling really isn't very good. My examples given above were only in the first chapter, but even as the story progresses it doesn't get much better. Later on we meet George's long lost father, which would have made a bigger impact if we had known he had run away to begin with, same with his mother who apparently died when he was too young to remember what she looked like. The quality to take things/people at face value, which normally would be filed under character flaws, is applied to all characters and ruin the plot. No one seems to question mysterious actions, it's just "I saved you. Take this gun, you work for me now. I need you to infiltrate this base and steal this microchip for me. Don't worry about what it does or what it's for. The base has 8 sniper towers and 24/7 security." "Don't worry, I can do it. I play N64."

So yeah, if you haven't guessed by now, this isn't a good comic. I do not recommend wasting your time reading this comic. I read the whole thing for you, and the best part of the comic is the banner image seen at the top of this review.

now that's just not fair. this comic is hardly erotic, and has nothing to do with Starfox. I can understand that you don't like Anthropomorphic characters, not many people do. but please don't criticize me for it.
to guest
I'm sorry you feel that way. keep in mind this is only the early stages. more will be revealed as time goes by. It's just getting started :D
Metal's Stocking must belong to Vaati. I can't see him wearing socks.

lol, their tree is as bad as they are.
To Ansen2345
very true, I've never played most of those games as I've only owned Nintendo systems for the longest time. but TWEWY, that game rocks!
A Good Night
Well, that's the end of Chapter one. Hopefully I've left you all with a good ending, a few questions, and a desire for more.

Remember all next week is a special Guest comic designed to bridge some of the gap between pages 13 and 14. I did it this way on purpose, so try not to be confused. :D

The On-The-Go Review
Foxin here, serving up another On-The-Go review, piping hot, hope you can handle it... yeah, so anyway, on with the review.

I'm a big fan of the Legend of Zelda series of video games, as are a lot of people, so the expectations are already pretty high. but rest assured for the artist, I'm also the creator of a video game inspired comic (shameless plug here --> http://ffttc.smackjeeves.com ) so I'll probably judge him less harshly than most other people would. I understand how the responsibility weighs heavy on the artist who is trying his hardest to deliver a quality product for the fans of the video game. After reading the whole thing over, I can easily say that as a fan, I am not disappointed.

The art shows up really nice, it's clean, clear and the artist stays true to the original looks of the characters while adding a little flare of his own. The pages are a little over sized and some of the comics flow in non tradition ways, by this I mean you have to follow the arrows that lead the panels to snake their way over the page, kinda annoying to follow along with. But that's not every page, nor is it every other page, so it's acceptable.

The only real problem this comic has on the PSP is the text in the speech bubbles shows up a little small and tends to be hard to read, though it is still readable. This is even more problematic when the characters say things out loud to themselves. when this happens, the characters' text is even smaller and usually outside of a speech bubble. unless you have good eyes this is a pain.

So, despite it's sizing problem, I still recommend this comic to everyone. If you need glasses, make sure have them close by. A magnifying glass should work too. or you could just save the pages to the images folder and enlarge them there.... but that's not recommended, it takes way too long.
Review
Now if you've ever played a Legend of Zelda video game (and honestly, who hasn't?) then you might think you already have of basic understanding of the plot. The story's hero, Link, starts out as a humble stable-boy. Finds out he's the hero of Hyrule. Grabs shield and sword. Fights evil. Saves the world, right? well, that much has yet to be seen. This comic is still in it's early stages with only 28 full pages, but it's easy to see the differences, and the similarities, between this manga styled comic and it's video game past.

As it is described on the Site's home page. The time period is very much modern day, with our hero, Link, a quiet and rather unassuming motorcycle mechanic, is assisting a Zora medic, Dorsu Squalidae. The story starts with the two of them arriving at Nayru Temple, a surface-world safe-haven for the Zoras and home to the ancient, yet very alive, Lord Jabu. If you've never played Ocarina of Time, Lord Jabu is a gigantic fish who the Zoras love and praise, he is also the reason Dorsu and Link are in Nayru. Lord Jabu isn't eating and his attendants don't know what's wrong. So [the yet unnamed agency] sends Dorsu and Link to investigate. After a few tests, they are unable to determine what is bothering him but assume he may have a stomach infection. An old textbook describes Lord Jabu's favorite delicacy is a type of green fish. So, one medicine filled green fish should do the trick, but Dorsu can't get lord Jabu to open up. Link gets handed the fish while Dorsu makes a phone call. What happens next is pretty obvious. Lord Jabu wraps one of his cat-fish-meets-octopus-type tentacles around Link and swallows him whole.

Now although this may sound like a lot to happen in just 28 pages, The story seems to drag a little starting at page 4. Just a little though as the story itself, although familiar, is very well written so far. Character development is also done rather well. Dorsu is your typical animé male know-it-all who likes a pretty girl and is friendly to Link, though he really could care less if Link was there or not. The hard part when writing a story using a character that is already well established is trying not to change that character's personality. Project Nayru has done an exceptional job so far keeping Link as we all know and love him. Quiet, somewhat aloof, and kind, giving him very little to say and learning as he goes.

Art wise, the comic is done in black and white, shaded with pencil, a shame only the first page so far has been outline with ink, but it looks fantastic. the text is a nice, readable size and is contained well without distracting from the characters.

Put all these factors together and you have yourself a great read that any Legend of Zelda fan will be adding to their favorites. I recommend this comic to everyone, not just those who are fans of the series.
