What did all those poor straw men do to be so horribly abused by Batiuk?
The same thing I did: tell him to pull his head out of his ass and admit that the Persian Gulf ain't the Gulf of Tonkin.
You know I honestly don't know whose the bigger art fag: Brooke or Badnews.
Gave him names like "Bad-News," said nasty things about him on blogs, and stopped reading his strip because they weren't mature or intelligent enough to realize that the comics pages are the ideal place for a steady, relentless diet of cancercancercancer, amputations, teen pregnancy, war, marital betrayal, alcoholism, and The Phantom Of The Low-Budget Dinner Theatre.
You see, if you don't appreciate Batiuk's view of life, it only shows your lack of character. Just like not being able to see the brilliant, colorful robes sported by the Emperor is due to your own moral failings.
Why am I getting images of Terry Goodkind?
They didn't heap tons praise on him for being an amazing courageous artist and give him the tons of awards he was expecting for the Lisa storyline.
No, they just said, "Dude, your shit's depressing."
Not to mention ineptly executed.
Sheesh. I see a school here that's about to get its art budget cut with a very large axe. Starting with the Suicide Girl's salary.
So do I; too bad that Batiuk doesn't. He's suffering from a terminal case of Head-up-the-arse.
Not to mention that there might be a big protest that would make the Tea Partiers faint and maybe even some vandalism or attempted murder.
I'm surprised they still have an art budget. After all, when times are tough (and based on previous strips they are) arts are often the first on the block.
And I thought South Park was the master of strawmen.
He was ineptly baiting strawmen when Parker and Stone were in Kindergarten.
True. They must've gotten it from him. The sad thing is that there are times I whole-heartedly agree with them, but the delivery kind of ruins it.
At least South Park isn't riddled with non sequitur cutaways that add nothing to the episode.
We should add him to the Small Name, Big Ego entry on tvtropes; he'd fit right in with Uwe Boll and John Byrne.
Don't forget Laurel K Hamilton.
I've eliminated 9CL from my Chron custom page--Batiuk, you're on the bubble, Mr. "nobody appreciates my cancerdeath artistry."
I'm going to hold off dropping it until after Becky remarries Wally; watching him explode and ruin people's gazpacho pizza so Batshit can show us how much he inderstands the plight of the veteran will be the straw(man) that broke the camel's back.
Heh. Maybe I'll stick around for that, too. BTW, I guess Batiuk wants us to forget the time glitches Wally's arc created.
That's for sure; he also wants us to forget that the insurgents aren't Charlie.
