Ironically I just found this site about two hours ago, and after reading some excellent reviews I wanted to do one on Not a Villain after I noted its review got cancelled in its own forum post, but seeing as someone else just completed a review less than an hour ago, probably not worthwhile. I know I'm new to the forum and the reviewing process, but if you need any help, editing, or additions, I'm more than happy to pitch in. That being said, since I checked the post on NAV, and it has not been updated since January, have you posted your review somewhere?

Just found a webcomic that I was almost instantly turned off completely to by the first page.  Something I haven't experienced before outside of the articles on this wiki.  I introduce to you all The Black Mudpuppy (unless any of you have already been acquainted, in that case I apologize for having to dig up a surely awful memory).

I don't know if it gets better later or not, as I only read about 15 pages before I had to quit.  But seeing as how the author is 29 and pretty confident in his ability, I'm not too hopeful about improvement.  The character is some type of weird Aztec Axolotl God Deadpool rip-off thing who is probably the least likable character I've seen in a good while.  But hey, why spoil the fun?  Read a bit yourself, it's almost hilariously bad.

Almost.

I think it deserves a spot in the wiki somewhere.  If I get around to reading the whole thing I may write it myself with permission, but was hoping someone with more snark might pick it up.

I see what you mean by deadpool ripoff. Deadpool is already a difficult character to write without going overboard with the zaniness. I'm also not impressed with the old "villains has to do good deeds to get his power back" shtick. The setup is pretty rushed since we don't even get much of a reason why xtotal is a bad guy other than he hates goats (so shouldn't he be a chupacabra?).

You know what pisses me off the most? It's yet another Jhonnen Vasquez wannabe. The only fail-safe here is that he doesn't look entirely ripping off JV's style. Though we could blame that on the guy not being able to draw shapes consistently. Do you know what does this comic reminds me? Shädbase-that sickening comic about a guy trying way to hard to be edgy, but ending up being just disgusting and misogynist. That's it. Every detail on this comic is like "let's try to imitate JV's randomness by making my own brand of random stuff". Did I already said this comic is random as fuck?

I'm not sure random is the right word. Random violence, yes, but otherwise I think its just poor storytelling and establishing things well.

Also, Shadbase pretty much does cartoon porn exclusively now. They guy's always pandered to the sexually frustrated teenagers of newgrounds long before he started the comic and it's awkward "edgy humor" phase.

Well, there you have it. Give it a try...whoever wants to make a review of that dumb comic. It's not the worst, but for FUCK'S sake people should at least get told to try a little bit harder on improving their own stuff.

In response to the random debate. There's something about a Hitler dinosaur or something in the story and the first antagonist to appear is a robot who's sole crime is poking (sometimes out) people's eyes. He first appears by smashing through their wall and poking the eyes of the human secondary protag's mother's chihuahua for no given reason. I don't know, that seems stupidly random to me. It's just appealing to mindless middle school readers.

Okay, now that the review for 6 Gun Mage is done, I keep trying to register to their forum. After trying three different accounts on two different services (mail.com and gmail.com) I still can't get a registry confirmation. Anyone who can sign up please keep an eye on their forum to check if there's drama or anything we can add to the review.

I think it's a problem on my end. It's been happening since before I started taking notes on the review, and I was just wondering if anyone else could do it. If they can't, I'll e-mail the admins and see what's up.

I think I've given up on writing a review of Belch Dimension Comics. I thought it'd be fun to tackle as my first review but the comic was just too mind bendingly atrocious for me to do it justice in my first attempt at a review. Can it be added to the list?
