I’ve seen some poorly drawn artwork out there but if they persevere I also see a dramatic improvement after a few hundred pages. Sometimes even 20ish pages like my Growlution show improvement, but that can be attributed to a change of program. I went from photoshop to illustrator, which uses vector art so it’s easy to adjust lines and other stuff. Heck, most of my wobble automatically smooths out and — whoops, back on track Xade!
Sometimes it’s the story that gets me to keep hitting that next button. You can have terrible artwork but if the story is good then I’ll stay and read it. However, the reverse is true too. I’ve seen some eye-watering, gorgeous artwork but the story was flat and dry like a flapjack (pancake for city folk) that landed in the sand at a beach party.
Gag comics can be interesting too. Most of these make me smile or even laugh if it’s a really good joke. This one (non-duck so I won’t say the name) I read almost always amuses me. It’s about a little girl and her adventures with a spider and his friends. Often there is a one-line zinger or even a little fourth wall peeking done so well that it's funny.
So, if it’s a gag comic or a story comic give it a chance. It just might surprise you. And don’t forget to leave a comment. Even if it’s a “lol” or “great comic” or even a full comment will make the creator’s day and give them the incentive to keep on making comics, for in the webcomic world no news is terrible news.
