Just looked over the old thread, and I'm really impressed by Jeph recently. The best way to tell a story about a tranny character injecting weeds with his mom and boss is to make it almost completely without conflict and end on a non-sequitur about a wandering borzoi. It'll be really great if the week the dog was supposed to wait at the shelter is completely forgotten about and there's no conclusion to the one thing that happened (current real-time wait is at 72 days).

I did actually like the part where Roko was applying for a job and the robots were being nutjob perverts, felt like a return to less shitty form. Too bad it was short and overshadowed by serious business bullshit about "AI rights" and the existential horror of being forced into an immediately available, fully funded replacement body with no functional differences. Amazing of Jeph to believe that he wrote a tear-jerking romance story between Faye and Menstro, would have loved to see him try to describe it as a true entwining of kindred spirits instead of glossing over the recap with a blank panel.

I skipped the Robot Thunderdome arc outside of these threads, but there's a stunning lack of dramatic narrative in Roko's character, just like every other character in QC. She feels bad about her job as a robocop over the robot fights, quits, and shortly loses her chassis. What a tremendous opportunity to put her directly in the shoes of the poor, oppressed robots she now empathizes with by NOT paying for the upgraded chassis now. She's in debt slavery without a paycheck because AIs don't get to walk around with tens of thousands of dollars of debt unlike humans, giving her an incentive to care about AI rights for reasons beyond

>oh I just realized being a good person means caring about this shit

Something more than a setup for stupid bullshit about super powerful robot fwiends, at least.

Yeah, what does she bring to the table, really? She's not fit, doesn't cook, doesn't clean and in fact eagerly lives in squalor, has long term hygiene issues, is unemployed or is minimally employed via her father taking pity on her, isn't particularly intelligent, knowledgeable or skilled, not good socially so no good at parties and other gatherings, quick to anger, quick to start a scene and blame the other party. She basically embodies all the negative female attributes, some of the negative male attributes (neckbeard lifestyle), and possesses few, if any, positive female attributes. She's not even supportive in the motherly or big sister kind of way, something most non-lesbian females can do.

You are correct. Big bang theory was amusing at first, but its humor quickly wore thin and then it got a second season.

And that was 12 years ago. Jeph has posted on Twitter his updated rigs, and they're always absolute top of the line iMacs. I haven't checked specifically, but I bet he bought the $15k iMac Pro that came out about a year ago. An 18-core workstation w/ 16 GB VRAM & 128 GB regular RAM meant for CAD or something but used for Manga Studio and Photohop paint bucket plugins that are probably single threaded. Ironically he's probably better off with a 4 or 6 core machine because his workflow will prefer clock rate rather than cores.

Is this supposed to be ironic? She's the one who invited him over for night owl sex and kicked him out at the earliest possible opportunity. It's not even clear he had enough time to brush his teeth with R'nee's toothbrush. Then, because he knew he was losing the war with the audience, Jeph made him call R'nee a bitch because no reasonable person would do such a thing after being literally pushed out of a house.

QC would improve by at least 15% if the author set up these situations so that the audience could argue over the decorum but he clearly takes sides, and he almost always sets up the "bad guy" as the morally or factually correct party.

>She goes from 0 to fucking bitch, freaks out on him for no reason, kicks him out before he can even get all his belongings back, and acts like a victim and pushes her roommate into feeling like she was a victim as well.

So brave.

This is an insightful look into how people like Jeph work and their tendency to form social bubbles filled with perpetual victims.

Just putting more effort into framing the panels could have done so. Look how cramped that leb catgirl is. Jeph could have raised the 'camera' and used half the panel for her, with Chad's head at the bottom and a brown finger pointing at him accusingly with the nig's word bubble next to it. Even keeping the shit punchline I could see a meme in that.

Now that I'm really looking at it, this is worse than if he just copy pasted the background. What the fuck is happening between panel one and two? Everything drops like four inches, I guess because Jeph drew Chad sampling the batter then he drew the rest. I don't know, it's subtly disjointed.

I decided to search for this group, Worst Part, on bandcamp. I'd say the same is quite appropriate as for all the songs you can easily pick out which parts are the worst.

So much of it sounds familiar, like they've been influenced by many other acts, but then they'll add their own, original content which conflicts with the tone of the music or ruins the beat. I actually found them irritating and unpleasant to listen to, like listening to an amateur trying to play something beyond their ability on a detuned instrument.

They're billed as "Stoner Rock" but I can't imagine any situation (other than curiosity) where someone would actually, willingly listen to a full album.

What, people who meet online specifically looking for no-strings-attached sex with complete strangers? There are no bridges to burn, here. No relationships, no commitments.

This is a stupid thing to say, especially since Jeph set it up as a hookup and that's after Shaniqua was shown flipping through a hookup app, judging people purely on looks.

This whole strip reads like Jeph, despite his claims, does indeed read the QC reddit and saw all the criticism.

It's also pretty strange that Clit shies away from talking about ethnicity, saying "ew", but is more than eager to discuss where Brun shits.

Jeph has to read Reddit, an image board, or some other criticism avenue. The alternative is that he correctly anticipates in advance what the complaints will be and then writes around them. But he's so shalllow, tone deaf, and out of touch that this can't really be the case.

It's not just the extra door–the typical bank doors made of nothing but glass suddenly became fire exits. Now we have a bank with multiple entrences, one of them perpendicular to the tellers, and mostly blocked off. Sounds great for security and personal safety. I mean, there is totally no reason the typical bank design is a huge wall of glass directly in front of the tellers with a double door system forcing people to walk through a vestibule.

>>1050284

Are you fucking high or some shit ? No it wasn't. It was enjoyable at the beginning because the internet was radically new and you had eight different webcomics to read in total at the time, three of them disgusting furryshit, so some bland emptyminded stuff was fine; but as soon as the internet started getting crowded with more content and especially GOOD content once in a while, QC became moronic, useless and faggy precisely because it failed to grow.

It is identical in humor, tone, style and competence as it was fifteen years ago; difference is, at least at the time, it had an excuse to be this shitty.


 No.1050891

>>1050890

Okay be fair, I agree that it was never especially good but it wasn't precisely the same in the beginning. It didn't have that problem where Jeph tries to be super serious but also compulsively has everyone make a joke in panel 4, for example. He still did the joke but he didn't try to be serious.


 No.1050894

>>1050890

Sure it was never great, note the quotes around "good". However : Characters have not always been that flat and bland. There was a time when each had his own personality, and each had actual flaws that felt somewhat natural.

The humor have changed because there are no characters to deliver the joke anymore. Old Faye and old Dora were kind of shitty people, so they said funny (kinda) offensive lines by being in-character. Raven was promiscuous, Marigold was a crazy shut-in, Hannelore n°2 was just crazy, Sven was a troubled edgy artist… All those created a number of setups for jokes and sometimes drama that worked. Not that well, but it worked.

It's not identical as it once was because without the "offensively" defined characters, Jeph greatly restricted the jokes and drama that could happen in his universe.

This man is correct.

I unironically liked QC back in the early years. It had a shitload of links to other comics, so I usually opened it first and [new tab]ed my way through the catalog until I got to Applegeeks when I switched over and used their link farm. It's story wasn't complete shit, it was in color, updated daily, and I cared about the characters and their lives because of the slowly growing romance and uninterrupted updates.

Then he shat the bed with Faye using her dad's suicide as an excuse to turn down Marten's not-quite-marriage-proposal and throw herself at Sven for reasons that don't make sense to sane people. After that, it entered a death spiral where the rationality behind character decisions became more and more questionable, their personalities became even more one dimensional, and the plot relied on new characters being introduced and forgotten about.

Eventually, I talked about QC in some 4chan webcomics thread, found comrades who also hated that which they used to love, and the QC cyclical thread was born. We drew, discussed, and critically shreded this comic as a cathartic release, relieved that we weren't alone. Then Jeph stabbed his hand, causing the Trappening to happen and threads became overwhelmed with >she posting, unironic defenses of trannies, and that cafe comic that I can't remember the name of. The 8chan exodus occurred, and I found out that most of the sane people migrated with me, so we began an even better chain of threads here, with better art, better writing, and intense hatred for degenerates.

This isn't the first time I've told this story, but it bears repeating for new initiates.

Tl;Dr

It used to be okay and we liked it. Now it sucks and we hate it, but we hate it together and that makes us brothers.

The deregulated internet was nine years old by 2003. It wasn't new, it was when the normies started coming in, middle aged people and younger people who somehow made it into their 20s and 30s somehow never touching a computer through the 80s and 90s.

You make it sound like QC was the first webcomic. Not even close. It was middle-of-the pack attempt competing with a Keenspot explosion that included El Goonish Shive, Goblins, and Twokinds. Penny arcade is literally five years older and part of a whole different generation of webcomics that includes 8-Bit Theater, User Friendly, and Willis' early stuff. QC didn't win because it was the only thing to read, it won because nearly everyone else who started a comic during this time stopped updating a few years (or even months) later while Jeph kept it going daily.

>>1050894

Characters used to have very long arcs associated with them, like with Hannelore and Marigold. Jeph attempts to approximate this now, but it falls flat because he fails to invest the time and focus required to get the audience buy-in. For example, why should anyone give a shit about the copbot? It was a gag character made into a main for no particular reason. Now we're supposed to feel sad because its off-the-shelf industrially produced body was replaced with another off-the-shelf industrially produced body.

The organic equivalent Jeph is looking for is when you're coming down from the overclocked mode that our brains go into when we're afraid for our lives and hopped up on adrenaline. When you're still in that hyper mode, but your attention is on normal things instead of survival, you become acutely aware of every move you make, your balance is supernaturally good, and you notice the smallest details in your surroundings.

Also, the only reason you'd need to buff the butt emblem is if it sticks out like a car emblem, and isn't recessed into the chassis and underneath a transparent layer. Having a half inch protrusion on the surface you sit on is beyond retarded, so I'm not sure what he's going for here.

Fire and most natural lights emit primarily the wavelength of light you see and lesser amounts of the wavelengths above and below it, diminishing in a nice neat curve.

OK he's definitely overusing the blank background gauss blur panels as a joke. No other way around it.

It's still delightfully frustrating that the only real suffering we've seen from the AIs was in the context of an illegal fighting ring, which Roko is now terribly guilty about trying to shut down. What are the rights they lack? This must also be a bit, of course. By all appearances they have full rights as if they were human, including the right to protest, to agitate for more rights. Why would they not use this right? You could always use more rights. Robots would surely use their positronic brains or whatever the fuck to go through all kinds of laws to seek out "injustices" and gibs. They could actually identify and define microaggressions and precision bullshit laws they want to prevent them. Everything they can possibly get, they must be gibbed.

No fucking way would they do this unless there was a government handout, which again makes me question how oppressed robots really are when they have special areas of buildings just for them, and of no use to anyone else.

They could either have humans paying regular rent, or robots who might use the booths sometimes, maybe, for an indeterminate length of time, and we don't know how much they pay for such a service.

By the sounds of it, public charging would only be of use to couriers or homeless robots. Of the two, we've seen the carnage a labour robot can cause, so I doubt anyone in their right mind would want to live in a place were a 2-ton robot could blunder into their doorway at any time and kill them.

Frequently the same price as a laundromat or more with much less machine maintenance and security. If a machine breaks down or becomes less efficient, the landlord will absolutely not be proactive about posting notice and even less about getting someone to fix it. Sharing with other apartments means even if there are no thieves, there are definitely retards who don't think ahead about the washers finishing faster than the dryers. A lot of places can't be assed to heat the halls/entrances but just rely on the heat leaking out of your poorly insulated apartment, and in freak cold snaps like we got a few weeks ago this can lead to pipes freezing. Depending on the distribution (One machine set for 6 apts? Three for 30?), you might also have to go to a different building to do your laundry unless you're willing to wait until next week for shit to get fixed. I don't know what Jeph's living quarters are like but since Brun's new place is run by dykes we can expect none of these problems to crop up in the comic even if he knows about them.

I actually don't get what the white panel is supposed to represent. She says "boredom" in the next panel but her facial expression doesn't represent that. There is a setup that implies the one apartment they found is going to be undeniably the best one, but what was the obstacle? Boredom, as described? Overwhelming number of options? Other options too expensive? Only place in town that's available? Laziness? Attention deficit disorder? Jeph really should have shown what was on the actual phone rather than Black Faye looking at the phone, but he can't draw anything but flat-angled characters on white backgrounds.

In another context I'd say this line of thinking would be nitpicky or irrelevant, but with this house search being dragged out and us getting multiple effectively duplicate strips, communication this unclear actually matters because it makes the strip meaningless. It's not like Jeph lacked the "screen time" or panel space to describe Black Faye's thought process.

In addition to his artificial panel setup, it's pretty evident that Jeph mandates "divide by five" arcs so that things end on Friday and begin on Monday. If he needs, say, six strips to communicate something, he'll pad it to ten to satisfy his artificial mandate. On top of that, it's also clear that arcs aren't fully considered before he starts, that he has just a rough idea fleshes it out as he goes along. So he has a rigid production format combined with a soft creative one, and here are the results.

Originally it was supposed to be emotionally significant like an anime scene with an abstract background shift, but without putting forth the effort to design anything.

Now here's where we could have some tension when after watching the bead-making process a single time, the robot is able to turn out bread of its own to the exact same quality, to the extent it can open its own place, employ other robots, wirelessly send them the breadmaking information and now there's a rival bakery which can turn out product 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

And that right there would be a reason people dislike robots.

Too bad the joke doesn't quite work because I doubt these mid-end models have any fun bits. It's a shame because it'd be fine if it were actually human or at least an alien race with a sense of shame.

It's a low bar but because it's Jeph I have to give him credit for having Roko say "this face" rather than "my face". It doesn't absolve a mountain of bad writing but it's at least an element that should be present.

I think the issue is the complete lack of effective build-up. She's displayed nothing like this level of dysmorphia before. It's a hamfisted, awkward attempt at emotional storytelling and it just doesn't work.

There's no conflict here, because everyone has to be 100% supportive at all times, or else be easily converted to being such (aside from the designated villains). Even if you have a right side and a wrong side, you can make it more interesting than this, just by doing some actual research instead of regurgitating tired TV clichés. Just a hint of original thought is all I'm asking for here. Maybe have Elliot refuse to believe that robots can get chassis dysmorphia because a huge portion of his life is governed and made easier by transferable AIs and he's (rightly) terrified by the fact that at any moment, one might forget that they're supposed to be a bus today and plow into their apartment building. How does that fear play into AI rights? Even if Jeph takes the progressive side of the debate and says they should be allowed to do their jobs even if they are objectively incapable of doing so, we're given a valid reason why society is still robophobic to some degree or another.

Maybe the previous model of the robot that crushed her chassis had legs 3/8" shorter than the new one and he couldn't adjust, thus leading to this whole predicament, and everyone that called him clumsy after the incident has contributed to his imminent breakdown while he tries to take a hacksaw to his legs, Saw-style. Maybe every failure of an AI to do its job so far in the comic has been due to an inability to adapt to new surroundings.

The only reason I read these threads is because QC is a masterclass in how not to write a story. It's beautiful, in its way, like a train wreck or a suspension bridge collapse.

I'm just astounded at the complete lack of subtlety, is all. Both in-universe and out of it. I might even have been on board if Roko had started out with minor, robot-specific issues. Maybe she's trying to charge with a micro-USB cable when she's supposed to be using a Lightning charger, or bumping her head on things that used to be the perfect height. We've gone from "I don't know if I'm used to it yet," straight to "OUT, DAMNED SPOT," and the usual suspects will call this a perfect example of sensitively bringing up genuine issues.

>a micro-USB cable

I realize this is a minor thing to complain about in the grand scheme of things but because Jeph insists this is a hard sci-fi universe I expect him to be cognizant of basic electrical properties. You simply cannot provide the charging capacity required over a 5V 2A USB connection, at least not over an 8 hour period or however long their downtime is. Even if it's future tech the cable is too thin. These robots would require something on the order of an electric vehicle charging cable.

This is also a world where technology is good enough for a fully sentient AI to be stored in a matchbook-sized device but can experience wishy-washy uncomfortable feelings when they do so, holograms can freely walk about but nobody uses them as a display tool, and civilian AIs are capable of hacking into military equipment and piloting them remotely but also choose to remain ignorant when they have questions instead of Googling it.

OK I went back and did a side-by-side to see if there's some obvious distinction.

It's well established that Jeph can't into perspective. You think he can draw a perfectly parallaxed room but then draws his characters at exactly 90 degrees to the viewer regardless of where they're placed? No, all his backgrounds are traced.

There was a notoriously bad page back in the Tilly plotline where he tried to do a top down view of a room but a) failed to correctly place his characters in 3d space yet again and b) clearly screwed with the focal point in his render program while trying to move the camera up so everything was fucking non-euclidean.

His tits seem to be inflating from panel to panel.

This also looks like Marten and Clarence are sleeping in separate rooms. Likely Marten on the couch and Clarence in his bed. Otherwise it seems kinda irresponsible of Marten to let his partner sleep in on the day of the exam.

Although, since Marten's only gotten as far as brushing his teeth, that extra sleep could have been about 7 minutes.

Overall, this idiotic plot hasn't shown Clarence in a very positive light - he just looks like an incompetent, infantile moron who clearly does not deserve the job he's been pretending to study for.

Hah, this could actually lead to some tension with robots further down the line.

Like, Clarence arrives at the library one morning to find a pastel-skinned robot talking to his boss:

>Ah, hello, Claire! Did you not get the email? Meet your replacement.

>He has an encyclopaedic knowledge of every book on our shelves; both covers, contents and authors.

It's high-school tier quantum physics. Heisenberg's uncertainty principle states that the product of your error in measurement of momentum and position is always greater than or equal to a (very small) constant, so the more accurately you know the position, the less you know about the momentum on a quantum scale.

The purpose of a squiggly blade is to cause a ragged cut so that it bleeds more, is harder to heal, and is more prone to infection. It kind of makes sense from a spiteful combat perspective, but it's generally not worth the loss of structural integrity unless you make it with a break-off blade to take advantage of it. That's why a lot of fictional assassins are seen with wavy knives, to make certain that the target doesn't survive even if they get medical help.

There's no good evidence that a flambard blade is any better at cutting or thrusting than a standard blade. People theorize about a smaller cutting area or a saw-like effect or wider wounds or an unpleasant sensation for the opponent while parrying, but these don't really hold up in practical testing. The 'wider wounds' argument in particular doesn't make sense - smaller, deeper wounds are more likely to be fatal than larger shallow ones, so for a straight blade the cross-section should always be minimized to improve penetration on the thrust as much as possible. When you consider that flambard was often seen in ceremonial or parade use and only occasionally in the field it's far more likely that it was just cosmetic. It looked cool and maybe a few professional soldiers/mercenaries with money to spare thought it was worth the intimidation factor.

What Dora's got, as the 'joke' at the bottom right indicates, is a knockoff (or very poorly drawn) Indonesian kris, which is a flame-bladed dagger.

Checked. Also, his art was improving until 2014, when for some reason it took a real dive. He just stopped detailing things like hair or ears. Look at Dale in the first strip, then in the second. Was he trying to speed up his process? I don't know my Handstab History well enough to say what was going on at that time.

Then since '14 he's drifted further and further away from what I thought of as 'his' style into this much more cartoony style. It's like he's trying to appeal to a younger audience. Look at Dora in the second and third strips. She might as well be a new character. The eyes are much simpler and anime-sized, everyone has beak noses, he stopped drawing lips altogether - does he not care and just wants to shit out comics faster, or is he watching too much Steven Universe?

Opinions vary, but a lot of people, myself included, think Jeph peaked somewhere in the 2008-10 range. People were already complaining about the decline in art quality by 2014 (really since about 2012), but the decline has definitely been more precipitous since then.

Jeph is definitely cutting corners for time efficiency. There is really no doubt about it. Besides the characters, backgrounds have been simplified and scene transitions have become rarer, enabling him more opportunity to reuse backgrounds.

I think Patreon is a secondary reason, with the primary being that the reason for launching Patreon was to create a second comic. Instead of using money to expand, which is the point of raising capital, Jeph just started cutting corners so that he could output seven strips per week instead of five. When hardly anyone complained about the quality drop, he continued down the path. When no one complained about him slipping on Alice Grove's schedule, he just released strips slower and slower until eventually canceling it when ~2 strips per month were coming out and no one seemed to care. Objectively speaking, there is actually an inverse relationship between the quality of he comic and the money Jeph makes from it.

Or maybe Jeph regrets that he had his former main character angry at a female, once, so he's consigned that incident to the memory hole.

Marten's life is controlled by freeloaders, including a tranny who seems to hatefuck him for having a career. He meekly absorbs emotional and financial abuse from every side and doesn't have a sympathetic ear anywhere.

Didn't Marten uproot himself for a girl in a flashback? He's originally from California, but he was so committed to a chick who wasn't actually that into him that he moved across the country to follow her.

>>1056557

You are correct. Marten is only located where he is because he was so committed to the relationship that he lined up a shitty 9-5 corporate job and moved across the country in order to be with her. He stayed because living here with a job was arguably better than moving home without a job. Then he met Faye and was willing to put her up in his own apartment and pay for all her expenses when they weren't even in a real relationship.

Willingness to commit to someone and undergo huge changes is not something Marten struggles with. On top of that, he has government friends and parents that are well placed in their own industries, so finding a decent job in a random place shouldn't be too hard. It makes sense for him to move away at this point, since Pintsize goes where he goes, Hannelore is already roaming, Dora is about to get married, Faye deserves to get abandoned, and he's not particularly close to the rest of the cast.

That, and he mostly lost his Main Character status when he became an accessory for Clairence to drag around.

No way. Characters' heights and boobs warp and morph between panels. Jeph never formally learned how to draw.
