What would improve "Raine Dog"?

Postby Foxchild » Thu Sep 17, 2009 2:08 pm

Alright, we all agree Raine Dog is an awful webcomic. So... What could be done to improve it? If you had the raw ability, what ONE would you change about it?

I, for one, would alter the writing by a GREAT deal, adding some form of Metrics to know the continuity has changed (aside from it being a different strip).
If you've done things right, people won't be sure if you've done anything at all.

Only one thing? As bad as the writing is I think by telling the story is some sort of order it would at least cut down on confusion and distractions. Even if DCS has some sort of goal by jumping all over the place he could finish an arc before jumping through time so that the reader could have a little understanding of what is going on with the bigger picture.

If I changed something about Raine Dog, it would not be Raine Dog anymore.

I can't see how a single change can fix the comic. Also, I find it nearly depressing to attempt listing ways to fix the comic.

I would just skip to getting Jeff in a fursuit from strip #1.
Anami and Anami are sitting around Anami says "GRR I AM ANGSTY LET'S EXPRESS ANGST" and so Anami says "ONE OF THE MODS ON DC IS A DICK I POSTED A PICTURE THAT WASN'T REALLY THAT INAPPROPRIATE AND THREE MODS SAW IT AND DID NOTHING THEN A FOURTH ONE SAW IT AND DELETED IT" and Anami says "OMG I HATE MODS >:("

Raine Penguin.
Who sleeps shall awake, greeting the shadows from the sun
Who sleeps shall awake, looking through the window of our lives
Waiting for the moment to arrive...
Show us the silence in the rise,
So that we may someday understand...

Ha ha, is that an actual strip from Nedroid? I don't remember it.

Also, actual parody strips I've seen, none of them too kind.

Yeah and I actually meant a DCer needs to make a parody strip. Like Liz perhaps. I don't think she cares enough though.

what would improve it?... A story arc

from DCS RD FAQ HP:
Do you already know how this is going to end?

I have the whole story basically mapped out, yes.
oh yeah... basically: DC: "Well let's see... oh, first I explain the childhood.... no it would be boring... I got it... It will be somewhat be like Pulp Ficton... nah... I just draw some chapters... I can sort them later..."
