  1. Hi, great episode. Do you guys think that the problem of sprite comics is the same as the roommate gamer comic? I mean, both of them, for the most part, rely on referential humor (“it’s funny because I know that game they are talking about!”).

    It seems to me that is more a thing about low fruit than the actual media. I love pixel art and I would like to see more good webcomics using it. it would be great to see a webcomic by Paul Robertson (he made the art for the Scott Pilgrim game) or someone else with that level of skill.

  2. I loved the art in that game, it was the main reason I checked it out (also, side-scrolling beat-em-up FTW). You’re right, it can be done well, and Hero Oh Hero is a good example of that, for the most part.
