What do you like about TMA?

Post by littlebeast »

Yeah, that thread got me thinking and wondering and whatnot, so, just as a general query to my readers...

What is your favorite thing about TMA/Why do you read TMA/What do you like about TMA/Etc?

The jokes, the Banter between the characters, breaking the Fourth Wall. And my Cameo! :D

What I come around for? Randomness, chaos, wall-breaking and far-reaching "plots" :D

That and the fact that unlike so many other sprite-webcomics, this one is rich on unique and excellent characters and graphics!

What do I like? Hmm...

I found you during the crossover wars. The first time through, I did not realize that there were _THREE_ different plotlines going at the same time. I did not realize that two of them were before and after a time-travel reversal of the same point.

In general?

Your comic took a lot of getting used to. Trying to learn what color goes with what person. Learning the upstairs/downstairs difference. Seeing the upstairs author downstairs in the wars.

What I like: The 4th wall isn't an edge of the story, nor is it there to be broken. You've got a 5th wall, and the 4th wall is just part of the story.

That's the best I can say for now. Will give it some more thought later.

Yeah, I suppose that could be easier. Most other comics I've seen that use similar techniques also color the speech bubbles when the characters are onscreen.
Then again, I suppose it's better than just leaving them black, and thus ambiguous; at least this way you can look them up.

Okay, well, anyway, that's all nice to know.

Lending to the fact that you yourself, especially during the Wars, mentioned that there were no deliberate plots to speak of, the stories just wrote themselves and envolved on their own ;)

That 4th wall :-)

Oh: Give us some updates!

..admittedly, not very much. BUT.
Anyway, the next one is again a big/weird one, so it's taking a while. But after that one, we should be back to 'normal', so (hopefully) it'll be faster.

You just used the term normal in relation to To Many Authors. Blasphemy.

Responding to an over a year-old post directed at me....

Well, though most of the answers are already posted.

Randomness and chaos are fun, 4th wall destruction is always good, cameos are nice, and the willingness to take suggestions from readers as to certain plots and other things. I always love viewer interaction.

Return question, in case you ever see this: What's the status with the comic anyway?

Back at you with the responding to over year-old questions.

Anyway... I think I have to admit it's pretty dead. It's pretty rare I even think about it anymore. And I expect if I did come back to it I wouldn't be able to provide the same silliness ;)

I probably should at least upload it somewhere else though, so it can be accessed...

So yeah while I occasionally(rarely) think about doing a reboot, I've basically given up the idea of continuing. :/

Well, at least I know you're not dead. Internet and all.

Sad that the comic is done for most purposes, but hey that's how life goes.

Good luck in the future, and if you ever start another comic or such, be sure to let me know :P
