Fear my uncanny ability to kill

I've come to a disturbing conclusion. I kill web comics. No, seriously, I do. I have this unnatural ability to make webcomics die shortly after I start visiting them - often within a few days. These are not flash in the pan comic, but comics which have been around for years before I get to them.

You don't believe me? Behold, some of the fallen;

Acid Reflux
Elf Only Inn
Sexy Losers
Bigger than Cheeses
Silence the Comic
Frightmore University

And probably many others now lost to the sands of time. I want to start reading more webcomics, but I'm terrified of killing them with my very presence. Eeep.

Sexy Losers isn't dead, hardartist just hasn't yet recovered from his hand injuries to continue. But he plans to, as far as I'm aware. He'll be back, better and harder than ever.

I realise this, but I find it oddly convenient that his tendonitis got so bad shortly after I started reading the strip...

Aha!! So you're the one responsible for me not being able to read new (and no doubt very wrong) Sexy Losers strips!

Please don't kill any of the following webcomics:



I am prepared to negotiate appropriate ransoms...

I occasionaly feel that I *have* killed MacHall, but then I realise that Ian is very, very slack.

I don't read Apple Geeks, Girl vs Pig or VG Cats, so they should be safe... but as I have been reading Ghastly for some weeks now, it's days are surely numbered.

Penny Arcade, on the other hand, is like a cockroach - nothing can kill it. Not even me. :)

Hehe yeah, I keep checking Mac Hall twice a week anyway, just in case there's been an update.

You'd probably enjoy Apple Geeks, it's a similar feel to Mac Hall since it's also done by a pair of college students.

Girl vs Pig varies between die-laughing and wtf?!? humour, and the author of VG Cats does some very disturbing things with well known video game characters.

As for Ghastly, I've been sorely tempted to get a Buck Cake t-shirt, disturbing as it is :)

Nah - that'd just start one of those "look how many of this thing I know about/am interested in" competitions. But thanks anyway!
