Have you all ever considered a grading rubric? Something objective you could use to decide on points? If you're worried about snarkiness putting off any truth to the review, then some sort of grading scale would REALLY help.

You could use something like
Neatness (10 points)
10: Lines are crisp. Font is well chosen, is readable, and words are neatly contained in word balloons. Characters blend in well with their surroundings, and the comic presents itself professionally.
5: (something in between)
1: Comic is deficient in all of these areas.
Invader Lur is, as you might imagine, an homage to both Invader Zim and Commander Lrrr of the Omicronians. Supertoad just rolled a natural 20 on a bluff roll; don't expect Invader Lur to be a regular character, but I had fun adding the disguise.

I couldn't resist the little coffee aliens; I realize that it's probably a trademarked image, but they are so cute! If you happen to be anywhere near Yorkshire, stop by http://www.flyingsaucerscafe.co.uk/index.htm and for the love of Pete, don't let on that I borrowed their cute clip art!

Finally, the background is a still frame from "EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS"
Ugh, coloring
Coloring this was a fair bit harder than it should have been, especially the African American fellow in the bottom right. I'm guessing it has something to do with finally using a pencil to trace, but the eraser didn't completely clear the lines, so I had to do a LOT of touch up. It still ain't perfect, but I got bored, and voila.

Incidently, the pose in panel #2 is totally LOL to me. Supertoad just looks so flirty!
To be fair, the Koopas aren't exactly used to fighting a guy who doesn't jump on their heads. They should send out somebody who's only defeated by being head stomped, like Boom Boom Koopa. That'd show Link!
Very very good. :) I done shared it with mah FB peeps.
These hands.. these.. DIRTY.. hands!
I had to literally go back to the drawing board and practice hands, but I'm a little more comfortable with them now. At least they don't look like mangled meathooks.
The way the potato is rubbing his own nipples when he says "How can this get any better" is disturbing. And erotic!
I'm with Holy on this one. You've got a clever thing going here, don't give up on it so easily!
Yeah, it's filler.
It was my spring break this last week, and I didn't get near as much drawing in as I was hoping to. I think I figured out hands a little better, though, so hopefully the next few comics won't look like horrible thresher accidents.
I wish these things were options on Facespace. Certainly beats sending people flowers or lost sheep or whatever the crap options we have.
Not easy like Sunday morning!
It's Sunday, so I thought I'd try my hand at coloring a comic. It's not particularly easy, mostly because I have a hard time completing lines when I'm drawing, so I have to do a fair amount of pixel twiddling to avoid paint splash outside the lines. However, it's not impossible, and for the most part, it's a neat effect.

I might make a Sunday habit out of this.
Cheer up, BarBot 23; you can just say you had "creative differences" with the management.

And keep it up, Merav! The cartooning, I mean, not the shit scattering. Do keep that together.
I cannot draw the Thinker!
I've been trying for weeks to get the statue correct, but putting a moai head on top of The Thinker is far beyond my abilities at present. So, I cheated and cobbled together Statue Man from a picture of each. Pretty good likeness, if I do say so myself!

I'll probably replicate this in the Characters page, but Statue Man came from some stupid throwaway song off of America's Funniest Home Videos, about some guy who sat statue still. The meme seems lost; not even YouTube has it, so I can claim to have invented it. Yup.
So far, it's very enjoyable -- though you've got a few spelling/grammar errors here and there. For example, do you perhaps mean amulet instead of amulant?
Oof, scanner seems to have eaten this one.

Mom always loved him best. Heck, she even ate him before she came after me!
Freak kegger accident. But yeah, hands are teh hardzorz!

Although, they're not actually college students <shifty>
I really appreciate the great feedback, Davo -- thanks for your help then, and I'm glad to share some improvements based on your thoughts! Enjoy!
Aang?
Is that the last Airbender whipping out his cell phone?
Midterms vs creativity
I've been wanting to pull off this effect, but I also have to give and grade midterms. So... lack of update for a week. Hopefully the creative juices backing up led to something nice?
