I'm doing these for my co-workers. This is my first one, and no need to critique I know there's lost of empty space and whatnot. Knew it when I was making it. That's why this was a test. Feel free to to comment on the comic just ignore the layout aspect.
Superfluous correlations through Pavlovian conditioning cause cerebral captivity for all of us.

They're both good. My slight concern lies in that no one gets hurt from it, of course.
To the pav guys: everyone has to start somewhere, and he/she should clean his finger before pointing it at someone else!!
I, myself, love them like ham sandwiches, which are quite yummy, and look forward to more.
Yes, I as you know strongly advise you to, well, you know. I have now for about a year and am so incredibly happier because of it; and i'm not in denial of it whatsoever either. Literally, I don't know what good I'm missing but I sure as know all the horror I'm missing!! Good luck with things!! I promise to play your demos because you are such a damn good game designer/programmer, not a domain/mag/pavilion supporter!!
The Pav boasts about member quantity, but heavily lacks (just as Nash just pointed out) in member quality. Would you rather have one nice friend whom truly cares about you or 100 who don't give a ?
The Pav counters by saying it's inevitable, that there will always be jerks when the population gets that big. That's true, but with stricter enforcement of jerk-rules those jerks could no longer be jerks. They would be forced into being closet-jerks!! Would you rather live in a well-balanced society where the people decide their liberties and resulting safeties (Domain) or one where the dicator rules ALL and then from his lack of concern anarchy hurts the innocent people tremendously (Pavilion)?
Over the last year I've gone so far as to realize that there isn't even a soul at the Mag or Pavilion whom I would want/like to see my work that doesn't also frequent the Domain, anyways. The Domain truly is my home away from home, and I can now see that that will never change. I actually feel safe here because Doan, Ves, and Nash listen to what we ALL say and TRULY take it into account when making important DECISIONS that WILL AFFECT our internet lives.
I think I better stop there so that a war doesn't break out, but perhaps it would be worth listening to and trying to understand. This is the oh-so-common little-man-who's-been-beat-down-by-the-big-internet-rpgm-community-machine's perspective and feelings on the issue, put in a very intelligent, wise, and reasonable manner, with a very good and possible solution presented. Sadly, if I don't see change I do think I'll be writing a letter to Agetec warning them of the atrocities associated with the Pavilion (of course with Doan's permission). Perhaps Agetec's next Maker will do better if we do a better part ourselves.
It's a comic about inside jokes. We don't get it. We don't find the jokes funny because we weren't there to understand what they're talking about. The same thing happened the last time someone tried to make a comic about inside jokes. And another person who made a game chock-full of inside jokes also recieved negative comments about them. How are we supposed to enjoy an inside joke if we're on the outside? They're called inside jokes for a reason.
this is in domain chatter, right? and the topic is comics? okay, just checking...
~ your friendly moderator, ves
(was that too vague?)
ps. nash, i like the comics. they are funny, and I don't think that if you told us they were about real life or inside jokes, anyone would know the difference. this is the kind of stuff that used to be on loony tunes, and everyone laughed at that, right? right!?

That's what I thought. At the very least they're okay. That's what I meant by "everyone has to start somewhere, and he/she should clean his finger before pointing it at someone else." Even if it's not that good, can you do better? Now show me, and I'll believe it. (whomever this is aimed at)

No. I think he's talking about the pavilion.
Now, I can understand if you guys didn't understand the jokes (I didn't understand them myself either), but it was his artwork that I liked. And I'm sure if I understood the jokes, I would find them funny.
What the guys at the pavilion said was unneccesary. It wasn't constructive criticism. Rather, they were flamming him. Now, I understand Valkysas wouldn't be happy to see this, but then, he had to go as far as to blame Doan (who had nothing to do with this) and the rest of the board, and call us "venomous" people.
The reason why we said the things we said is because the people on the pavilion acted unreasonable towards Nash. Plus, I think if Valk hadn't said what he did, the others wouldn't have followed.
I don't want to turn this into an anti-pavilion thread, because this is meant to be a topic sharing Nash's artwork, but what Valk and the rest of the pavilion did was unneccessary.
so yeah. if there are problems with what the pavilion said, talk about it there. if it merits mine or doan's attention, send us a pm. if there are anymore posts that mention anything other than nash's comics, ill be locking this topic.

They were that bad to him? And now they're blaming us? All Nash did was put up his work.
From what I understand now Nash enjoys going to the Pavilion and saying bad things about Valk. Valk, why haven't you just gotten rid of him through banning his account? This trouble could've been prevented through a simple stricter enforcement of the rules. If peace between you and Nash really is impossible, do us all a favor and please end it.
Right Nash? Trust me, life is better on the other side, without the Pavilion. I've been Pavilion-free for almost a year now and it truly is a wonderful thing. Nash, I am an not lying at all. It is wonderful, so, so, so, so, wonderful. The Domain truly is my home away from home and I love everything about it. But, you know what I love most? How Doan runs the place like a democracy!
It truly is better over here Nash.
edit: I think this will be my last post on the issue.
