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.

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:

Awesome, both the artists did great jobs.

Romek, that coloring is really well done. :thup:

    they did not winterize any of the plants and they froze
  • The Helper The Helper:
    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    That is such a Texas thing to say lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
