After last time, I was fairly shook. Ice Climbers Do Whatever, a comic I made in high school at the turn of the millennium, didn’t hold up as well as I thought it did! I was able to pin-point the exact moment that things went from being fun to sort of a slog and it was when I tried to turn things into a legitimate web-comic. There’s only one more story to share, so let’s see how this one goes as the arguable protagonist of that era tries to steal Easter.
Will there be gratuitous cameos and scenes designed only to show off sprite-work? Will the word balloons be properly placed? There’s a lot of ways this could go but we’ll see. Oh, will we see.
Oh no. We’re not off to a good start. In fact, we’re off to a bad start. I should have been stopped. Sometimes I wonder if I did something wrong to make my life so difficult, and now I know for sure: this comic, right here, should be considered a crime.
This one is a little better, but not much. I don’t even know if Holy Rollers handle snakes, the guy who made Cruton said they did and I just took him at his word.
I had a major problem with randomly introducing characters for absolutely no reason, though that guy up there stuck around throughout the pre-Fictosphere days (though he did warp into other things a few times) and even now persists, at least in spirit.
The ending was decently solid, at least. Third Attempt ended here and is, let’s not mince words, a failure in almost all respects but it would have kept on for a while if the site I was hosting it on decided to stop allowing uploads.
Things were quiet on the comic front for me for several years, with several ideas bouncing around I never got around to finishing properly, but eventually these were succeeded by a comic called AoMP which began with yet another storyline explaining an art change. This one was from sprite to other art, so the first few comics in that one were sprite comics and that was in 2006. We won’t ever be discussing those, as it’s an era best left forgotten.
