What webcomics have you STOPPED reading?

Postby Jessica » Wed Jul 02, 2008 11:47 pm UTC

Ok. So, there's the "what webcomics do you read" thread. Then, reading the CAD thread reminded me "You know, CAD isn't the only webcomic I used to like then stopped".

So, why not put them in a thread?

So, these are webcomics that you've consciously stopped reading. Reading them until the last issue and not having any more doesn't count. And not checking for updates in 2 months because it hasn't updated in 4 doesn't count, because you are checking for updates.

These are webcomics that you read, and didn't like, for one reason or another.

For me:
CAD - I used to like the zany webcomic, but after sometime, and after actually thinking about it, I realized that I hadn't even smiled at a CAD in months. So I stopped.

Megatokyo - Just added this one. The recently full metal panic story line just tipped it over the edge of not updating real content enough, and stupid story lines, and just a whole mess of junk. I'd had enough.

8bit theater - Never made it through the archives, but I found at some point that I could make my own jokes by saying swordchucks, hadoken and make reference to twinking. Never liked sprite comics since.

There were others, but I can't think of them now.

I can only remember CAD right now. I stopped when he did the "readers decide what's next" comics. I vaguely remember starting a few others and stopping them but I neither can I remember the names nor does it really count since I stopped the same day I started. I'm usually fairly compulsive so starting to read a webcomic for me means to go through the archive in one go. I'll post back if I remember anything I'm missing right now.

CAD - Same as you.

8bit Theater - My first webcomic! I read the archives and then just checked up rarely. (My first webcomic, as I said, so I wasn't on my super-tight webcomic schedule that I am now.) Just kind of fell out of habit, really.

Cyanide and Happiness - Like 8-bit theater.

8-bit Theater, as mentioned. CAD and C&H I still follow, but they're both close to being removed... C&H I only catch up every couple of weeks.

Also: Fuzzy Knights was my first webcomic, which I followed back when my standards were low... stopped following it when I realised it wasn't really that funny, and there was better stuff out there... Though, I found OotS via their forum, so it wasn't a total loss.

I've stopped reading VGcats.

It's not that I dislike the stuff, it's that the author never updates it. I don't understand how you can maintain a reader base that way. He didn't feel like making a comic so he didn't. Every. Single. Week. It's more rare for there to actually be a comic than for him to skip it. That's okay, I don't feel entitled - but I also don't intend to keep generating revenue on the site by visiting it 3 times a week. It's a bummer, I liked that one.

I've kind of lapsed in my webcomic checking in the last month or two, but I intend to get back to most of them. So I won't list those.

CAD - I started reading it back in middle school, and just grew out of it. Better webcomics showed me what I was missing, and I was never that into gaming. I checked it every now and then for awhile, but I severed it when the current storyline started. (Or probably the accompanying blogpost)

Cyanide & Happiness - I don't dislike it. It knows it's a dead-baby-joke a day. I just don't find it interesting enough to keep track of.

Least I Could Do - I don't remember why I stopped this one, but I did. I think it was the kind of comic that is fun as an archive, but not as fun daily. You can't just click next and wait for it to be funny again. It also seems in cahoots with CAD.

Megatokyo - I haven't looked at it in maybe a year, so I can't assess it properly. I think it was another that was fun as an archive, and annoying as a regular update. The self-placement characters seemed weird too, but that stuff is forgivable in comics that have been running forever.

Most I've the comics I used to read I only stopped because they did :( . There are a few that I read through (all | most | some of ) the archives but never kept up to date with at all, which would include all the gaming comics (PvP, Penny Arcade, CAD, VGcats, Duelling Analogs, and maybe some others.)

Megatokyo, because if I saw Shirt-Guy-Dom one more time, I was going to murder *everyone*.

8-bit, because...it just got old...

Errant Story, because waiting for updates in a story that 1just crawls along like that bored me. I will one day just go back through and read the whole thing.

Indeed, I too stopped seeing the point to reading 8-bit Theater. It just plain stopped being funny.

Antihero for Hire used to be good, but it got so hopelessly bogged down in plot in recent months that I couldn't stand it anymore.

A few years ago I spent a solid weekend or so reading the archives of College Roomies from Hell, and while I had a great time I found myself quite incapable of picking up where I left off later on.

I gave Erfworld a fair shake but gave up on it rather quickly. So many people are raving about it that I might give it another whirl sometime; maybe it's better in large doses.

Yet another person who used to read CAD - back in about 2005 - reporting in.

Maybe a poll, if you can think of a few common ones?

I totally forgot about Errant story! Yeah, that one went in the trash heap a little while ago. Just... couldn't stand it. I just wanted it to go, and do something.

That and it's no exploitation now!

CAD - Basically, he has failed.
8-Bit Theatre - Just kind of got boring.
VGCats - Again, just kind of got boring.
Accidental Centaurs - The comic author started acting like a complete asshole (more so than Mr. Buckley)

And though this one doesn't count since it disappeared of the face of the internet: Nazi High. I just can't resist plugging this webcomic because it was truly awesome. (How can you go wrong with a Pope Tank?)

I gave up on Post-Nuke and Instant Classic, both because of their terrible update schedule.

I have been entirely willing to forgive Dresden Codak's update schedule, on the other hand, because it's just so awesome.

Joy of Tech, for one. I just went back to look at the newer strips and still find they're barely smile-worthy. I probably liked it a few years ago because it was one of the first decent geeky strips I'd found. Now it seems like the same jokes over and over, though the Mars Rover one got a chuckle,

Sluggy Freelance, mostly because I haven't smiled at it in a while, and though the guy's been damn good about getting a comic out every day for years and years (I mean, sure, the amount he's skipped could fill three months, but the fucking thing is eight years old or something) and... frankly, it's just not enjoyable. I went from reading it pretty much every day to checking in once a week to checking in once every couple of months and just completely stopped when he started the latest Harry Potter parody. Just can't take it anymore.

Real Life - Another fucking gargant of a webcomic, I can't really pinpoint why, I just lost interest. There's not a lot of depth to the characters, I suppose, and then the author started adding it in. There's also the parts that mirror his life exactly, then the parts that are WACKY ZANY WOOOO!!! so.. maybe that's part of it too. I don't mind either, but I suppose I'd rather him pick one.

Krakow - The premise is a dude summons a succubus and, rather than just doing what you'd assume a heterosexual male would do after purposefully summoning a sex demon before dismissing her, starts an actual relationship. Now, I know what you're thinking... comedy gold.. but, yeah, the author fucks it all up along the way and it becomes... tiresome. Oh, so tiresome.

The other webcomics I recall reading from back in the day (Loserz, Sexy Losers, Ghastly's Ghastly Comic, Mall Monkeys) all ended, so.. yeah, I didn't quit them, they quit me. Though, especially in the case of Sexy Losers, I understand.

I guess I've kind of quit reading VGCats for the same reasons everyone else has already mentioned: It's just not as updated as much as it used to be. That, and I don't really get half the video game references, since I don't play video games. Some references I might get, even if I don't play, but others I never did.

I used to watch Neurotically Yours (Foamy the Squirrel) every two weeks, but I got out of that after a while. I think it was when that new brown squirrel was introduced.

I used to read Earthsong, but I quit when I think she began repeating the strips, mainly when Willow arrived.

Sometimes I just lose interest in a webcomic (or even print comic) and quit reading after a while. Don't know why, I just do.

8-bit theater and megatokyo started getting repetitive and boring. Three panel soul had interesting artwork but otherwise wasn't very entertaining and didn't update often enough to keep my interest. VG cats had a really great comic once in a while, but the great comic to bad comic ratio seemed to have declined steadily and it wasn't worth it anymore. I might drop CAD soon, not sure.

I quit reading MegaTokyo when I found myself not caring at all about the story any more. That and Fred gets really whiny sometimes. (Still he's a good guy, he's just a tad sensitive. Someone should bake him a cake or something.)

I quit with VGCats since I like comics that actually update. Occasionally I'll check the archives if there's a comic I want to reference, and sometimes there might even be a new comic up. But since that's almost random, I don't consider it following the comic any more.

Chugworth Academy is another that I used to read. Not sure why I quit; it might've been the overdone sexuality part of it, but something about it I didn't like any more.

Jessica wrote:I miss Loserz.

Same here. There've been quite a few discontinued comics I rather liked... Loserz, Sexy Losers (no relation... and very NSFW), RPGWorld...

I also still read 8-Bit Theater, and still enjoy it. KF

Let's see...

CAD - for reasons stated above.
8-Bit Theatre - Haven't read that one in years, but it simply dragged on and on with wholly repetitive humor.
Sinfest - I eventually realized I only read it for the art, and even that got unoriginal.
Pictures for Sad Children - After his strips on nerds and transhumanism, I noticed that his character was just being a dick -- and not just a dick for the sake of story; he was speaking in the same manner the author of a comic would speak through his characters.

Alien loves Predator - I think it just lost its appeal pretty quickly
Nothing Nice To Say - it's occasionally good, and I know I got my SO into it fairly bad, but it's usually just not that entertaining.
Biff - not actually funny any more.
Marmaduke Explained - see above
Chaospet - so unfunny and badly written that I currently have a small pile of sketches for my own philosophy-based webcomic that I will probably never get the time to make. I really wanted to like it. It's just maybe the most... well, it's just bad.

Wow, that's a new one.

Megatokyo has always struck me as one of those monolithic, intricate things whose archives I would have to spend many days paging through before I could begin to understand it. Thus, I never started.

I gave up on Staccato a long time ago when the author was in a dry spell. I understand he got out of it eventually.

However, I would say that I still read Zebra Girl, though technically it updates even less frequently than VGCats.

There's probably a bunch I stopped reading because I forgot about them.

Misfile is/was pretty good, but I guess I got bored with it.

For a long time I didn't find VGcats all that funny, but Super Effective is pretty good (if your into that kind of thing)

My favorite thing about MegaTokyo is that it's a self-insertion comic where HE DOESN'T GET THE GIRL. I mean, if you're going to make a comic about your idealized self, at least bang the hot Japanese girls. Oh yeah, all his female characters look alike. He *really* need an inker, like, REALLY BAD. So yeah, I stopped reading it awhile ago, along with Sinfest and some others. 8bit Theater is on that list, too, for reasons already stated.

PBF, because it forced me to. Also Concerned was my favourite Gary's-Modded HL2 comic. But that's finished too. I haven't read anything on Dr. McNinja for a while now. I was an avid follower right up until the D.A.R.E. to Resist story arc. I'm not sure why I stopped. I guess I missed a few and haven't spent the time catching up.

I read Diesel Sweeties for a few weeks, but stopped. I wasn't sure what all the fuss was about and why it got syndicated. I also don't read Achewood as much as I'd like to. It's not even in my staunchly-regimented bookmarks folder (Daily/Entertainment/RSS feeds/Webcomics) This is something that is about to change, once I catch up on over a year's worth.

Aware that they are not strictly webcomics, but I stopped receiving daily Garfield and Dilbert strips in my inbox at some point in, whoa, 2001 now. I get it, bosses and Mondays are incompetent and annoying, respectively. Lasagne is, I concede, still delicious.

I wish Gary Larson would come out of hiding/retirement and start up a new webcomic based on anarchic science labs, anthropomorphic cows, and net-wielding entomologists. Sigh.

I got into CAD and 8-bit because a few of my friends were into them. But I`m not really into it now.

(for some reason my keyboard is making `instead of an apostrophe and I`m too lazy to fix it.)

I find this Truck Bearing Kibble thing that someone mentioned recently to be an excellent (and much less freaking creepy) substitute.

Since you're in Canada, you probably have your keyboard set to English-Canada (or some variant thereof) instead of English-US. (I hate it when that happens.)

But... the creepy thing was part of the appeal..

Sluggy Freelance and CAD.

Sluggy Freelance is the big one for me. It was my favorite webcomic for a long, long time. After a while I just realized it wasn't good anymore, and for every week he updated, he took three weeks off as a break with filler art or joke comics, right in the middle of serious storylines. Few things enrage me like filler art treated like an appropriate substitute for a comic.

Dominic Deegan I stopped reading, after faithfully sticking with it for years, when I realized that it was getting downright painful to read.

There are a number of others, but they aren't coming to mind.
