    What was the best, worst, or strangest comment you've ever got for your comic?

    I have to live vicariously through you guys since I have very few vocal readers as yet.

    People would skip over talking about anything regarding the artwork, dialogue, or story to point out things like a ball gag I placed on a character's night stand.

    I ended up removing my comment section all together afterward though.

    Where I do my comic every now and then comments tend to be the thing to bring me back.

    Worst comment : "Not funny"

    @john_wigger So I should be putting ball gags in my comic for attention?  Noted.

    @Keeeng  You have to wonder why anyone would even bother to write that.

    One guy asked me to draw one of my characters naked for him.
    I never responded.

    I got that before... a guy kept calling for rule 34 of various characters.

    Did you ignore him or tell him it would be a hefty fee?

    I had one guy specifically email me saying I should stick to being in the kitchen cooking and raising children. I didn't respond to his email, so he then posted on the comic. I took the comment down, and fortunately haven't had any more issues.

    @6ColorStories Cooking and raising them... in that order?  It's usually easier the other way around, I find.

    But seriously, trolling or no, the dude needs a life.

    I got death threats from so-called Doctor Who (see tweenies who only liked David Tennant, and the 10/Rose shippy stuff, not the actual show itself) fans, after I did a strip, where I questioned why certain toy collectors in certain fandoms were more happier getting ripped off on ebay, rather than supporting actual brick and mortar stores, who were cheaper and gave customers good prices, rather than fleecing them. (I had recently closed my business, due to such issues of those whom I catered to, would not come to my shop, and would be happier to stay at home and get ripped off on that infamous "auction" site.)
    They even raised a hate campaign on Livejournal (sorry, please don't laugh, it'd only encourage them), and to this day I still see track-backs from those LJ posts.
    One of those fan-kiddies even got my whole site wiped by Bluehost (no idea what they said, but Bluehost wiped everything without warning), hence why I left their webhosting not long afterwards.

    That is total BS. Unbelievable.

    I too have had comments requesting 'fan service'. I think it'd probably undermine the world I was trying to create if I started doing that kind of thing...

    Oh yeah, that reminds me of my comic strip in college. I got an email from some frat guys that was effectively, "Come and meet us by the bike rack after school so we can tell you what we really think of your strip... with our fists."

    I sent the email to the police and didn't hear back from the frat guys ever again.
