  1. Comic for Wednesday, November 16, 2022

    I wasn't being literal. I was drawing a deliberate comparison as a way of alluding to the theory about Nanase's magic being the reason hers are as big as they are.

    Dang, man. Lucy is jacked. I'm talking Natalie Portman in Love and Thunder level jacked. Plus, she's...er, "Nanase-sized" in other areas, if you catch my meaning. Are we sure she doesn't have magic, too?

    It's going to be a while before this is up and running again, since while I still have and use my notebook, it's been a while since I've updated it and I relied on the thread in the old forum to remind me of when I left off. I've heard rumors of an attempt at data recovery, but barring that I'll probably have to recount a lot of things to make sure I'm on track. EDIT: It occurs to me that the rules for appearances were in the original thread, which was deleted. Here are my criteria: -On panel appearance (duh) -Off panel dialogue -Partial appearance. This one is iffy, but I usually require around 25% visibility (or a face) AND clarity as to who the character is. Said clarity must exist in the strip itself, not including context from previous strips. Rare exceptions have been made to the visibility requirement, such as when The Boar died and only its hoof was visible, but I generally stick pretty hard to it. -Flashbacks and fantasy sequences count -Recurring apparitions that are not real, such as Susan's personality aspects, are counted as "semi-characters" -Characters with alter-egos (such as Elliot) receive credit for the appearances of those alter-egos, and the alter-egos themselves receive credit as semi-characters -If two alter-egos appear in the same strip (like Cheerleadra and Heidi, say) they would both receive individual credit, but Elliot would only be counted once -Different versions of the same character, like Zeus/Jerry, or any alternate universe versions like Beta Tedd or Second Life Ellen, are counted as separate characters

    Raven's only 6 behind her.

    I feel I should also point out that we're a third of the way through September, or 69.5% through the year, and: Ellen has only appeared twice Nanase has only appeared once Justin, Susan, and Diane have not yet appeared at all

  13. Comic for Friday June 3, 2022

    This fits well with my "always punch Nazis" philosophy.
  14. https://www.egscomics.com/comic/balance-154 In my mind, Liam's voice is somewhere between Keith David and Dennis Haysbert.
  15. Crazy Counting Guy

    That would require her to be in every single strip for six months straight - something that to my knowledge has never happened before - and also for Dan to take no breaks and not miss a single day for that entire period. I'd say a year at the earliest.
  16. Crazy Counting Guy

    Given that Elliot has been the first to every milestone save one (600) and Grace has been second since 300 (save that same 600), my money's on Grace.

    I wasn't a big fan of Shortpacked either. I think what draws me most to DoA is the major theme of escaping childhood religious indoctrination.
  19. Crazy Counting Guy

    Indeed to both. I think Dumbing of Age is the best I've seen at it.
  20. Crazy Counting Guy

    Nanase and Ellen are the farthest removed from the rest of the cast. They're kind of almost their own thing. Either they're the focus of the story for months at a time, or they're barely in it at all. They've both had single digit appearances per year multiple times.

    2009 was the only year in which not all of the main characters appeared (Sarah and Tedd,were the ones missing, incidentally).

  23. NP Comic for Thu. March 31, 2022

    I'll agree with this, though I find that the latter instances outnumber the former significantly. Ironically, if it's something important that does need to be explained for the coherence of the story, Dan generally does a pretty concise, succinct job of it and moves on quickly. When it's some minor detail that's not important but that they're worried somebody will misunderstand, that's when they spend way too long trying to explain themself. It's frustrating, and it's I think the only thing about Dan's writing that I don't enjoy.
  24. https://www.egscomics.com/egsnp/assorted2022a05 Today's comic (and accompanying commentary), is something about Dan that's always been very obvious to me, and it's something with which I've always heartily disagreed with him on. It's clear Dan feels the need to explain himself to his audience, and I can even understand why he might feel that way, but I do not consider it necessary at all. In fact, I find that the times an artist goes out of their way to explain or contextualize their art almost always weakens it.
  25. NP Comic for Thu. March 31, 2022

    What other hand? This is precisely what I was getting at. Part of it, anyway. I'm also opposed to hand-holding. Let me figure things out on my own. Indeed. Dan's standards with regard to their own work tend to be different. I have no way to verify this, but I suspect it stems from being a people pleaser.
