Since our new ad started on MacHall, we've had over 50 new entries into SplurdLink. I think what astounds me most about webcomics is the extent some people will go to hide their comic behind their clever HTML "skills." One comic even required their users to register with their page before they even told you they had a comic on their site. More on that later.
Despite the junk, there was a lot of cool stuff. These are my favorites out of the new batch.
- Angel Moxie by Dan Hess - My favorite of the new SplurdLinkers. Angel Moxie is a blatant, belligerent parody of "Card Captor Sakura," but does the same job that Ian J's RPG World does to the Final Fantasy series. Dan Hess's characters and plot take on a life of their own despite the parody base. Great gags, fun story, ridiculously cute characters.
- Asinine Eva by Kate - a collection of gags making specific fun of Neon Genesis Evangelion. Very wrong, very funny.
- Random Thoughts by Black Kitty - Funny stuff. Quite a few good gags in this one.
- Once Upon A Table by Mark Evan Jones - I can't say why, but the concept of a dwarf who wields an ax that shouts PG-rated interjections every time it hits something simply fascinates me.
- The Mousekaroos by Sarah Davis - I haven't gotten all the way through it yet, but Mousekaroos is a very unusual fantasy/furry story. It's certainly interesting enough to keep me reading.
I'm planning on making a post like this once a month. If new SplurdLinkers keep signing up like they did this past week, I would have to do weekly picks post just to keep up. I guess we'll have to see.
