I guess I'm not that savy on detecting types of webcomics - because I don't get that impression from Out of Placers. I get more of a "whoever made this can't stop comming up with new and creative shit for her setting, with the lore and shit that just oozes "I have such a fun setting in my mind, I can barely figure out how to tell it"
I've seen webcomics from reasonably seasoned cartoonists fall into the same trap, if they get a random muse up their ass and start a new original project. 90% new interesting lore, 10% characters and actual story. Speed of plot: glacial.
Shit like Goblins or Erfworld comes to mind - Thunk and the joker behind Erfworld both clearly have shitloads of lore in mind, but can't get themselves to update enough to balance their 'input' of new ideas to their output in comics.
and honestly, Out of Placers is showing a lot more promise IMO than Goblins, and considering that Erfworld has degenerated into a graphic novel with the occational illustration, then... ya
Oh no, this doesn't mean you are not savvy when it comes to webcomics, I think this is just one of those situations when two people approach the same thing from different angles. From my part I 100% love Out of Placers and eagerly await for its next page, I just think that its a bit of a shame that the first pages of the comic now feel a bit lacking in detail because the new ones are so great in comparison, so there is hardly any room for any meaningful reference to their respective scenes whenever a new page implies something from past events. But that is strictly my opinion because I'm the kind of person that likes to revisit something and find out that the meaningful things were always in the background since the beginning, so no matter what I think, Out of Placers is improving and won't stop which is always a good thing when it comes to webcomics.
