What if Hilarity Comics…

by Steve Napierski to Comics

It has almost been a year since the last What if…? comic. I didn’t even realize that it had been that long. This is the 13th comic in the series and is technically also the 400th Dueling Analogs comic. I say technically because there are 29 guest comics done by other people, 1 is a filler image, 1 is a YouTube video and 1 is a flash animation leaving 368 regular comics. So take it as you wish. Though November 17th is definitely the four year anniversary of Dueling Analogs. And it seems like only yesterday that I decided to take up sadism.

I decided to do the latest incarnation of the series as a “What if Patrick Alexander, from Hilarity Comics, created Dueling Analogs?” Now Hilarity Comics is what you get if you mix F@NB0Y$, Ralph Bakshi and lots of drugs… I mean LOTS of them. It’s a really funny comic and one that I actually feel guilty laughing at… Okay, not really. I was just trying to save face. No guilt at all laughing at the comics. They are generally funny. Even the ones that conflict with comics I have created (figure those out on your own ;) ) Nonetheless, it is definitely worth checking out.

    I, for one, quite despise Hilarity Comics, which I actually follow (I am a person with rather strong tolerance for such things) just so that I can compare other gamer webcomics to it.

    For those who like Hilarity Comics, I would warn you about Mr. Alexander’s other works. They are shit-coming-out-of-my-eyes bad. Literally. I once read them, but even my tolerance for very disgustingly hilarious comedy has its limit.

    In any case, this is some awesome mimicry, Steve, though Mr. Alexander would not color skin pink, at least for apparently human-looking characters of his.

    @gelugon2105 Actually if you look through the archives you can see that he has a Doug (the cartoon) philosophy to the color of people regardless of whether they are more human-looking or not.

    When mimicking someone else’s comic, I try not to create a new color if the artist already used one that I can use. These colors came straight from his site and from human-looking character as well.

    Oh yes, now I recall that comic strip about not-human-looking-but-supposed-to-be-human characters. Thanks for informing me, and sorry about that pointing out.

    Personally, I think that Mr. Alexander was just too lazy to sift through the color palette in his image creating/editing software, then got angry, highly critical emails from some persons, and made that comic strip in response and adopted this stance ever since.
