Default GRIM DORKNESS- new 40k webcomic!

hey guys!

me and a few other people on a forum decided to get together and make the funniest webcomic we could in the absence of Golden Throne, so we registered a drunkduck and made...

GRIM DORKNESS

the comic is still in its infancy so we can take criticism to the format
this can be pretty NWS occasionally

Ya know... I saw the art and immediately said. "Wow. This webcomic is going to fail." But the jokes are rather funny, in a warped sort of way.

I like this one a lot, despite the fact that I've played more successful apocalypse games than unsuccessful ones.

I think this one is a bit of an insult to our own resident here at TO Wargamer

Hmm, it seems to portray veterans and some of the Warseer Inquisition in rather a bad light...

Although, I must say, from what I have seen of instore games, your Apoc one was spot on the money.

At first, I thought, "hey cool, a comic on 40k! Nice". Following the link the next reaction was something along the lines of "wtf". The style isnt really beautiful, and some of the jokes are rather bad, but the majority are actually quite funny when youre into the game.

These I chuckled over

Keep it up... I like the simple look, but try not to make it too simple, mkay?

Pathetic. I didn't think it was possible for webcomics to have worse art than Cyanide & Happiness, but this is horrible. Not to mention the fact that half the "humour" seems to be nothing but C&H ripoff, including multiple panels of nothing.

Not to mention an apparent attempt to alienate the only readership base this comic could have by endless army bashing and insulting of the hobbyist stereotype.
