The Lurker

"The Lurker" is a comic written by myself and drawn currently by vypur85. There are weekly strips which are posted in the Prose of the Week, in the Writers' Corner. (The style of the drawing changes because Smith_S9 quit, and vypur replaced him.) This is the archive of strips so far. Enjoy :thup:

Special #1: Dialog Boxes


Review by Pineapple for PotW:
Lets start things off with last weeks Comic, The Lurkers ‘Dialog Boxes’ Now there is two things that come to my mind when I read the title, people talking and boxes. I was highly disappointed with the lack of boxes in the strip. Without those boxes its not even a real comic. Moving along then, the second frame. What is he doing? Is his arm turned 180 degrees or something? That looks painful! Like, seriously. Ouch. Another things, did the bolded text need to be orange? Really? Did it? Really? Like, seriously? For real? As well the comics writing was highly original and well thought out idea that must have taken a long time to come up with, takes real brains to make that. Oh, wait.

I’ll give that comic a rating of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

#9: Rite of JASSage


Review by Pineapple for PotW:
Lets start this off with last weeks comic again, “Rite of JASSage” Now. As a person who doesn’t know JASS the first thing I thought of was, “God damn, I really want some cookies or something, I think there are some in the cupboard but I may have eaten them…” Anyway, the script was the type of script that if it was a vegetable it would be a potato. I really don’t think that needs any more explaining. Now the artwork was decent, but what was with The Lurkers hand in the last frame? His left hand looked like a sticker pasted onto his head by small penguins with thumbs.

I guess I have to give the comic a rating of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

#10: BJs Will Get You Banished


Review by Pineapple for PotW:
Lets get everything kicked off again with last weeks comic, “Banished”. Overall, I love bread, sliced bread is even better, so the writing gets a thump up I guess. The artwork was quite good this time around, nothing seemed particularly off. Now the downside? I don’t know any JASS. I don’t use WE. I don’t get it. Yeah, he got banned, but what’s with the “bj_”? The comic is good, but I quit the world editor long ago so lots of these Warcraft based gags I’m not going to get.

So perhaps I’m not the targeted audience for this comic, I can still give it a rating of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

The comics are well made!

I don't mean to drag you away from your theme here, but surely if you write based on a broader theme other than TH.net you guys could really pick up good intertube traffic :thup:

You may not stop this project. I'll do something radical if you do.
Yes sir!

I wasn't planning on stopping it anytime in the future. I was even prepared to use sprites to make them if I couldn't find an artist.

Knight, could you upload the comic here after every Saturday or Sunday to archive the comic instead of having another portal for your comic. I'm afraid some of my readers will get bored of Prose of the Week eventually, so a comic should keep people entertained during the toil of updates.

Also, I really love all the articles my members send me. They're all filled with so much character and information. It keeps me up to date and keeps me happy. I'm just a bit concerned about not having a comic or being ignored by some readers because it's much easier to view the comic here.

I support your idea for an archive, but please keep it an archive. Maybe you can post a comic here after the last issue expires. Just a thought.

Thanks.

I'll always send the comic to Prose and wait until Prose is out before posting it here. This is strictly an archive, and not for posting new comics. I'll be sure to only add a strip here if the Prose after that strip was in is or is about to be released. :thup:

    that field is going to explode and though there is competition there is going to be room for all levels in the coming years imho.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Why are we competing for rough mornings? :(
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't want to compete for that, yall can have it.
  • Varine Varine:
    @The Helper I'm trying. Once I am more prepared to be figuring out school I'll probably ask for your advice
  • Varine Varine:
    Right now I'm just trying to get through the pandemic and figure out how I'm going to pay for it, and figure out what I need to get a job at Best Buy instead of a kitchen somewhere.
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    oy just catching up on the discussion above. @Varine yeah I usually alternate between claritin & zyrtec, depending on whatever my body decides to reject at the time lol
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    the more I use it the less effective it gets over time as my body accustoms to it so I try to not use it every day
  • S songbird:
    Glad to see some interest in the IS3 NUON reprint. :)
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Thank you Carl for making that happen that just might be the spark we need.
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm confused and amazed that NUON and TWV's news postings are the things still active.
  • Varine Varine:
    Or Tom Mai, not TWV
  • Varine Varine:
    Whatever happened to Cheshire? Or Firecat, whatever his real name was?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've been using both claritin and fexofenadine or something like that recently alternately and that's been kinda working, I don't feel like my face is going to explode at least. Eyes are still itchy as fuck though
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I dunno, haven't seen Firecat in a long while now.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    By the way, we have new file attachment size limits now.
  • Varine Varine:
    Are they bigger?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Yeah, new max size limit is 64 MB, to accommodate NUON-Dome emulation.
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I ever ran into a file size problem before. What was it before?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've had file type issues before I think, but I haven't uploaded anything since like 2010.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    alot smaller than that basically barely anything and it would have been different then 2010 because of the forum upgrade
  • Varine Varine:
    lol I forgot this used to look different
  • Varine Varine:
    It's by far the brightest webpage I regularly visit, the first thing I usually do is try to figure out dark mode.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    If you invert the colors, The Helper Forums looks amazing
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    It still has that blue theme at the top
  • Ghan Ghan:
    There's no particular hard limit to attachments. "Something reasonable" is preferred to "a size large enough to fill up the server disk"
