I don't know how well this would go over in smartsnark considering it seems a little grudgey, (it isn't, believe me, I just hate this comic on principle) but god dammit I have to snark the shit out of this thing. It's been bothering me
. Sitting in its little corner of the web, mocking me with it's shiny but still obviously flawed artwork and unbelievably awful writing. I HAVE TO MOCK IT. I HAVE TO
The comic I'm talking about is Teahouse
. It is a comic about whores. Yes, really. That is what it is about. That is all
that it is about.
It is a comic about whores with the majority of them inexplicably being men, despite the fact that this story looks like it takes place in like the 1800's or something and that makes no goddamn sense. But then I remembered that this is only an excuse for yaoi sexings and that makes it a little better... no, wait, it's still fucking stupid.
So let's take this thing page by page. (skipping a few that are boring)( Collapse )
tl;dr: Teahouse is pretty shitty. It has nice art despite some obvious flaws and inconsistencies and it COULD be good if the characters were interesting and their stories were imaginative and entertaining. Unfortunately, they aren't. It also updates horrifically slowly, probably due to aforementioned nice art, but it could easily be toned down a little for the sake of speed. Watch this thing make it to around 50 pages in like two years (which is abysmal to be perfectly honest, even for a webcomic) and then never be updated again.
My advice to this person would be to get a writer, preferably one that doesn't suck, and start over. She's wasting her skill on this generic bullshit fantasy yaoi tripe.
I could have been reading Ray Bradbury but instead I spent two hours writing this for you guys. You're fucking welcome.
