    Ive been going through the archives on this webcomic and it is awesome. David willis is quite a comedic genius

    Who else has gotten into it and how are you finding it?

    You have a sense of humor far, far greater than that of David Willis.

    I believe what you're sensing can only be described as Nachtsider.

    Shortpacked is fun. I'm finding it less fun recently than it has been in previous years though. It used to be that when he introduced drama or preached about fandoms, it was still super funny. Lately the drama is often just drama and the preaching is just preaching. Maybe it's me.

    Willis used to be a regular here, a long time ago, I think.

    This comic is out of date, but it's still a fun reminder of Transformers' darkest hour. :D

    I might like it more if Willis could write a character who isn't a strawman or a sex freak.

    I like the one with the gay joke.

    And the one with the guy who hates new stuff.

    And the one where Shattered Glass Ravage was on Twitter.

    Ha! I have no bad feelings personally towards Willis, but I'm not ignorant to the hate towards him, and It was around long before that.

    Some segments of the fandom hate him for calling them out on their bullshit.

    I believe there was some ancient incidents regarding his involvement with OTFCC and being paid in exclusive toys to murder babies or something. I don't know, it was probably dumb whiny bullshit.

    Now days though people don't like Shortpacked because it's stupid and dumb - it's a comic with endless boring ass drama involving characters with personalities that don't extend much beyond THIS ONE IS GAY, THIS ONE USED TO BE GAY, THIS ONE WILL BECOME GAY, etc. If it's not drama that makes ctrl+alt+del's miscarriage look like Oscar winning material then it's just stating the obvious in the form of a wall of text, something that could be done as a blog post.

    I have thought about reading short packed regularly, but I'm not sure since it doesn't focus on Transformers. One thing that has turned me off is that the characters often go to conventions like SDCC, which not everyone can attend.

    Read it if you enjoy both:

    Sitcoms

    And random comedy

    The worst Shortpacked strips don't come close to being that horrible.
