The Other Side is back with a look at three new awful webcomics; The Lounge, The Wotch, and Dresden Codak. Three pieces of crap that have become legends among bad webcomics. Countless reviews have been written compiling all that is wrong with these three abominations unto entertainment, and now The Other Side brings their unique perspective. Of course, that’s not all, as the revolting aspects of Dresden Codak’s plot opens up some deep discussions on meaning and humanity… and then Cody and Max square off in a verbal cage match!

    Statues and Girls and Werewolves would be a good name for an alt rock band.

    • Cody Baier

      They don’t even exist and I hate them already…

      • Chris Sobieniak

        I wouldn’t listen to ‘em!

  • Mikel Crawford

    Aaron thinks he’s clever by having the same name as a Model actor.

  • Max-Vader

    Some of the highlights from his blog:
    -Diaz “fixes” the X-Men.
    -Diaz “fixes” the Justice League, Legion of Doom and Batman.
    -Diaz explains why… well, see for yourself.
    -Diaz praises Sarkeesian for all the “hard work” she has done.

      That’s the worst version of Apocalypse I’ve seen and Mystique is a furry.

      “It’s great when people working their butts off get the credit they deserve.”

      Who knew that stealing youtube footage is hard work.

      • Max-Vader

        Hey, YOU try scamming people out of their money while giving them nothing in return. It’s back-breaking!

    • Cecilthedarknight_28

      the images below sum up my feelings.

  • JokeName

    Diaz has made the biggest and dumbest computer virus that is and ever will be.

  • Jack Johnson

    On the subject of atheism vs. religion. I came across a wonderful crazy that believed that our country need to segregate and exterminate all people of religion. This was of course because of religious crimes like the crusades and the holocaust.

    • Chris Sobieniak

      Someone always has to think of the past.

    Reviewing shitty web comics this time around eh?? Why do you torment your self so much??

    • Chris Sobieniak

      Some people are on a mission to save us from this dreck!

      • Cecilthedarknight_28

        i do thank them for that.

    I can’t believe the Dresden Codak tumblr wasn’t mentioned. This thing is a pure gold mine of hypocrisy and embarrassing comedy. There’s one post he reblogs that shows a bunch of diversely drawn women (spawned from an art prompt called “Lady Knights”) where he then comments, “I love these so much. Great examples of diverse female designs in a genre in which it’s sorely lacking.”

    Ummm. Aaron? Have you seen your own female protagonist? Kimiko’s body type is blander than a bowl of grits. Skinny in the waist with a generous amount of T&A. But she wears suits sometimes and is half Asian so that fixes everything, right guys? No, no it doesn’t.

    • Cody Baier

      Some of his women characters have bigger boobs than others. To Diaz, this counts as diversity. Truly is a paragon of feminist thoug–oh, wait, Kimiko’s tits are hangin’ out nvm

      Now, I’ll be the first to admit I don’t have a ton of diversity myself. But I’ll also be the first to admit that’s entirely on purpose; I know HOW to draw a variety of body types, I just don’t want to. I enjoy drawing pretty people. I guess that makes me a misogynist. Better close down the Cloudscratcher tumblr a’fore they come and get me.

      • Pen

        It’s okay to not have a super diversity in body types as long as you’re not trying to paint yourself as having some feminist quota. It’s like whining, “There isn’t enough ethnic diversity in comics!” and then making a comic where everyone is whiter than a KKK member in a snow storm.

        People need to understand that comics are for entertainment, not to fill some political agenda. People like Diaz don’t really want to change the way mainstream comics are, they just want to sit on their asses and make long Tumblr articles complaining about how the media is so “evil.” Can we just have more webcomics like Lackadaisy and stop spawning man child comics?

  • Chris Sobieniak

    It’s a good thing I have never bothered with a webcomic in my life (either doing one myself or reading others), though there is one I do bother with simply because it’s like a present-day Pogo or Bloom County (so no ‘anime’ here though he did do an Attack On Titan ref. earlier)…

    Not having heard of Dresden Codak before, it already sounds like a terrible comic to me with it’s ‘hero’. I remember you guys talked about the right wing nuts earlier (like Linkara’s objectivist beliefs), and for years I thought I was very far left myself but now I think I’m as more centered than before after hearing of that trash. I can see why it’s author has such a bug up his butt whenever someone has the slightest opinion about his integrity (if any at all).

  • Mikel Crawford

    Review in question:

    To quote a commentor:
    “Diaz’s comic feels like smoke and mirrors to hide the fact that he doesn’t understand human-human interactions, doesn’t have the capability to do inner conflict, and doesn’t have the emotional intelligence to bring about characters who express real feelings.”

    In short, he’s just an autist how’s only good at drawing pretty pictures.

    You guys should review some of Bleedman’s comics one of these days. His shit is so awful (besides the art) it’s hilarious. XD
