The Webcomic Acid Test
by Tekkactus

I saw this test for quality of a webcomic posted on /co/, and, well...

Q: DOES THE PLOT MAKE SENSE, MORE OR LESS?

More or less. I've gotten a couple of continuity complaints (you can't just jump in and expect to understand everything), but as a whole everything fits together.

Q: DO ANY OF THE CHARACTERS TIP OFF THE MARY-SUE LITMUS TEST? DOES MORE THAN ONE?

Trish skirts it sometimes; I'm well aware that she's a very pretty, very smart deadpan snarker that likes nerd stuff. It makes me cringe a little sometimes how much I've loaded her skill-set. She's saved in that she's hard to get along with and has some real self-image issues, but it gets dangerous sometimes.

Q: DOES THE CREATOR'S ART IMPROVE OVER TIME?

You better fucking believe it does. Holy crap the early strips were awful.

Q: IS THE COMIC ALMOST ENTIRELY PORNOGRAPHIC OR FETISH-RELATED?

No. Not even a little.

Q: IS THE CREATOR A DICK? (SEE ALSO: CHRIS-CHAN, TIM BUCKLEY, JAY NAYLOR)

Not to my readers, I'm not.

Q: DOES THE COMIC HAVE A SCHEDULE THAT IT ACTUALLY KEEPS TO MOST OF THE TIME?

HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA. Ok, I fail this one.

Q: IS IT A FUCKING SPRITE COMIC? TELL ME IT'S NOT A SPRITE COMIC.

I copy-paste backgrounds sometimes; I hope you forgive me.

Critical Existance Failure

Heyyyy GUYS. I'm not sure if you noticed, but I've missed an update or two. There is a real reason for this, though! See, I was almost ready to finish up a comic for today, when my printer/scanner/copier/fax combo up and died. So I can't Scan...dgate.

No comics for a couple days while I search for a replacement or something! I think this is something you should be used to, but I figgered I should keep you all in the know.

Well, the archive has been moved over successfully, so that's one chore done. Now I need to figure out how to transfer over the old fanart and cast pages despite barely knowing HTML... and making a new banner... and general site spiffin'.

 

Once all this is done, I'm sure it'll be awesome!

I Know It's Terrible
by Tekkactus

Heyo, kids, adults, and everything in between! I'm currently in the process of transferring my 100+ page archive from my old host at Web Comics Nation to this new site. Don't judge the comic by what you might be seeing now; chances are the "latest page" is 2-3 years old! Until I get everything settled and moved in, I recommend taking a peek at http://www.webcomicsnation.com/sandgate/sandgate_wcn/series.php to get a better representation of Sandgate is like.
