That douchebag’s rearing his Harry Potter looking head? Dear God…
Just kidding, love you Willis.
As if being representative for the Transformers Wiki wasn’t enough…
I really enjoy how Willis is able to bash himself in his own web-comic. Show’s how respectable he is. He’s also quite respectful in the comments section as opposed to some people who have commented to me in the past.
David Willis. Building himself up and cutting himself down all in the same swell foop.
Just remember to try and avoid the Comic Strip.
My favorite Shortpacked arc ever was when you inserted yourself to battle Ethan over the wiki. But I dunno, now the joke’s lost its magic.
With retreads, I’d typically agree. But this one’s a reference to an actual thing:
Does the real thing also feature a picture of him pointing at his junk?
I vote Ethan & Robin tag team mudwrestling brawl vs Walky Willis & Roz. I mean, I’m not the only one who sees that that is the ONLY way to solve this, right?
Also, Mister David, what was it like drawing yourself motioning threateningly to your animated junk? I’d wager that’s not an experience many people have had.
It’s an experience that’s not that hard to duplicate! Grab a pen and paper.
I’d wager that’s not an experience many people have had.
You are obviously not familiar with online furry fandom.
Is this going to lead to another fight between you and Ethan? He said hopefully
Ha, I love your subtle “suck it” gesture.
The more I see you draw Drew (ugh that looks gramatically weird) the more I love him. Like, as a character I already liked him a lot, but I like his design the more I see it.
Um, or something. fff
I dunno if it’s THAT subtle.
… that was supposed to be tongue-in-cheek. DANGIT sarcasm doesn’t translate well over the Internet.
Should’ve put “subtle” in quotes.
I must see your Recordicon story. I must!
Oh man, this could only be worse for Ethan if Drew said, “He’s kinda cute.”
Ughhh cool it with the spoilers bro
Not really a spoiler until someone mentions something’s a spoiler for the people doing the archive trawls, but thanks for ruining something for me somehow.
As was mentioned several times in the comments section for the early comics, DO NOT READ THE COMMENTS SECTION ON YOUR FIRST READTHROUGH, or be prepared to face the spoilery consequences.
In the early years, we didn’t even HAVE a comments section, so all those comments were added later, and Willis’s epic use of foreshadowing and calling back to events that happened literally years (sometimes over a decade) before mean that a lot of his fans go back and reread regularly just to keep our memories refreshed.
Willis finally owns up to the promise he made to draw himself with a bit more heft.
His penis is a Decepticon.
It transforms into a larger form.
But Megatron’s gun is illogically small.
Megatron is totally overcompensating.
Megatron actually shoots other robots with a 3x optical scope mounted on his arm. You wouldn’t think was the best way to do it.
Of course even if he did it the right way, he’s only .38 caliber anyway. He’s not even .357 magnum.
You know, the use oh the darker color around the crotch and down the pant legs makes me think that you drew yourself peeing your pants (and pointing to the wet spot).
“You ain’t cool, unless, you pee your pants! Everybody my age pee their pants; it’s the coolest!” – Billy Madison
Wha? Did he pee his underarms too, or the side of hs face? That’s clearly shading.
Well, not many Comic Characters interact with their creaters like that…or hate them like that.
On the other hand, in all the cases I can think of where the comic characters *do* interact with their creators (Real Life, Bob and George) the relationships start at ‘none too fond’ and downspiral from there. Which is kind of brave of the characters because the creators wield Awesome Godlike Power(tm) over them.
Also, completely unrelated, I love how comic-Willis’s picture on the mag cover exists solely to communicate a private message to Ethan – that, or comic-Willis is of the opinion that his entire readership needs a lesson in humility.
I think Sinfest may be the rare exception.
Sinfest includes authorial self-insertion?
And no, I don’t think the God character counts.
Pooch and Percival’s owner.
I think the brilliance here (unlike some other appearances by the cartoonist in the comic), is there’s no fourth-wall breaking. Willis isn’t in the comic as the creator. He’s just some Transformers fan that Ethan thinks is a jerk.
Agreed. I think you hit the nail into the wall; that and I think some people over think this just a bit too much. This is entertainment, enjoy it.
Rat vs. Stephan Pastis in Pearls Before Swine?
Heh, “meathooks.” (Is that a Roomies! reference?)
Ah yes, I suppose if I were on the front of a magazine I would certainly scowl down at the impudent masses. Very few people take the chance to do that.
Hey, Walky! Transformers MMO announced. I’m sure it’s old news, but hey.
Yeah, but it’s for Asia. I’m not moving to play an MMO!
You know there are ways around that, right?
The question is, would Ethan?
*squints desperately to try and read the Recordicons comic*
And now, Ethan will try to write his own comic, featuring nothing but the Shattered Glass Autobot cassettes attacking a hapless SG!Con named “Walky”.
Oh, Primus. He’s gonna turn you into the SG!Con equivalent of Wheelie.
The war begins…
I see Ravage! But I don’t think he’s waving! What heresy is this?
In the picture, for some reason, Walky is showing the magazine photographer the approximate location of his dick.
Heh. Generally I don’t care for it when cartoonists write themselves into the storyline, but having yourself at odds with one of your characters is just genius. I love it, and I love Shortpacked!
I just wanted to let you know, I’ve been trying to follow your comic through my mobile using opera 4, and it’s recently become impossible to see the comic page. When I’m in mobile view the comic page isn’t selectable. When I’m in normal view and I click view image while hovering over the comic page, it loads the background instead. I had similiar problems when I used opera 5, but through much tinkering I could get it to work. After enough time in opera 5, I decided to downgrade back to 4 since 5 was too hard on my phone’s system… Well anyway… Enough life story. Any chance the website could be fixed for my (and hopefully others) viewing enjoyment? Other webcomics’s sites I visit don’t have the same issue.
Whaaaaaat, I guess it’s a good thing Ethan doesn’t like you or he’d sit and read your comic and lose his mind like somethin outta Animal Man goin on…
I CAN SEE YOU!
Are my eyes just playing tricks on me, or does Roz in fact have puffies???
Wow, somebody was looking really closely.
OH HAI. IZ DAT B LACKLI ON???
(Also of note, did not notice Willis pointing to his Wiigii. For a moment, I thought that was [i]Bruce[/i] Willis.)
Willis I love the idea that your one of your own characters arch enemy that is just way too funny.
Being the occasionally-seen nemesis of one of your primary characters: clearly the best form of author insertion. I love this one.
