Sorry.  I am maybe in a bad place and took some umbrage to this part of Beat Bandit's post:
Somewhere along the line getting whatever you want through hard work became being entitled to everything you want. Even if you clearly do not possess any of the required attributes.
That colored my reaction to the rest of the page.
I'ma maybe take myself a little break at least until this case of the runs dies down.

I really can't wait for the fallout a few years from now when these otherkin/otakukin/sjws try to get jobs and their employers pull this shit up and you can hear the laughter from across state lines

Also on Penny Arcade and furries: They did one strip on it back in 2002 without realizing they existed as a thing. The commentary in the book says that the resulting deluge of hate mail made them decide to not do any more volumes of "Things we hate", but the end result is Tycho tried to talk to as many of these people as he could once they realized furries were "A thing", and quote, "Made several hundred friends in the span of a few hours, friends I still talk to today."

My original comment was in regards to the fact that trying to derive humour from furries/otherkin is long past its expiry date.

I can't believe I actually had to explain that.

I didn't read it as making fun of these people. "What if there was a furry before the Internet, and what if there was a furry before it got trendy to make fun of furries?" The other guy's reaction is kind of touching, a sort of confusion that spawns acceptance, because here's a comrade in arms you're trusting with your life, and he's acting bizarre, but at the bottom of it it doesn't really matter because he's still got your back, so let him think he's a raccoon if that's what he wants.

I expected good things from Broodhollow, Kris Straub's new comic (now that Starslip has ended), given that the author has described it as Hergé meets Lovecraft, but for the first few strips I wasn't entirely sure the art style would do the job. The dude can write some creepy stuff though (he did Candle Cove if you heard about that), so I wasn't too worried.

And then today... Welp, the art's there too. Makes sense that he needed to end one of his comics to start this one; visually this is a couple notches above pretty much anything he ever did. I'm really looking forward to where it goes.

Der-Shing Helmer has really delivered on the promise to resume updates on schedule. Hopefully this keeps up for the rest of the year at least!

If I have to read one more page of Jillian's intricate and harrowing back story I will take four shits and die.

Man, I hear ya. Even after all this she's still by far the character I want to learn about the least. And since book 2 has started, Wanda's edging towards second place in that regard. There's not even any suspense, we know Faq's going to survive until Wanda can sell it out to Stanley.

Erfworld. Which is alternating between slowly resolving two branches of the conflit we actually care about, and slowly filling in backstory for the two least interesting characters in text-only updates. There are legitimate real-life reasons for the overall pacing (the writer went into surgery and had complications, and the artist's mother died), and I guess it's still better than, say, no updates. But yeah, the backstory is getting tiresome, and it would be so even if it was illustrated.

I think CAD just ended.

False alarm, he's rebooting it.

wow.  Six years is quite the hiatus.  Can't say I expected a return, but I'm happy to see more.
