The biggest news in the web comic world in which we live was today’s release of Ctl-Alt-Del the animated series. I can’t give my reactions to it because I haven’t seen it and personally I don’t care for the strip enough to pay for it.
However I am curious so if you love Tim Buckley’s work or just have an extra $1.95 to satisfy your curiosity post your take on it in the comment section, or the ever-popular Digital Strips forums.
Since Buckley’s in the news it got me thinking about him and his strip. Like I said, I don’t like it enough to pay for it, but I do read it. I’m pretty neutral in my opinion of CAD. I think it’s a decent strip in a competitive genre. I’m happy Buckley can make money from it. I hope other artists can share in his success.
From what I’ve read though on various forums and blogs, I’m in the minority with my indifference. Most people either love the man, or hate him with a passion normally reserved for grade school bus drivers.
I think people tend to feel so strongly is that CAD is such a high visibility strip. A lot of people read it and therefore have an opinion on it. When a lot of people have an opinion o the same thing they debate about it and feel more strongly than they did before. It just sort of snowballs from there.
I also think every world needs a bad guy, some one to boo. Conflict between what we perceive as good and evil make anything more interesting so people look for bad guys wherever they can find them and because of what he’s said and done, Buckley’s many people’s web comic villain.
Either way, it makes for some good discussion. Have at it.
