This is another one of the new slides I prepared for my "10 Things I Hate About Webcomics" presentation at Anime USA this year. The idea behind the whole thing was to poke fun at common webcomics tropes, cliches, and/or bad habits and to help new creators recognize them and then either avoid them or exploit them (because anything, even tropes, done well can still make for good entertainment). This stuff can be applied to a lot of other media as well and I think most creators (myself included) have been guilty of them at one point or another.
This was the first part of the "Webcomics as Soapbox" segment (the second part covered the "Straw Man Argument" and can be seen here: [link]
). The art was taken from a comic a did a few years ago where I actually did just rant for 8 straight panels. Thankfully, I learned my lesson and can now ridicule myself for your benefit.
