i miss the older more simple (and funnier) comics

Postby choosk » Tue Dec 31, 2013 1:31 pm

I've been reading SMBC for about 5 years now and i've noticed the gradual change of the tone of the comics, from short & simple, smart punch lines, to the present long-winded, existentialist/philosophical/multi-layered commentary that i find too complex to be entertaining.

What happened? i used to regularly share the comics to my friends online but i've found that there's no point anymore :S did something life-changing happen to zach to warrant this change in the nature of SMBC?

I hope I didn't sound too critical, i'm sure others would've felt the same way. I used to anticipate new additions to the comics but nowadays I'm hard-pressed to even read to the end of a tortuous page.

Oh no! You and SMBC have grown apart. You can no longer be friends. What will become of this tragic story now?

Well it could end the way I saw fit to end my relationship with SMBC.

I guess we could dress up in robot costumes and wrestle for Admin rights to the forum to a backdrop of the American Flag and various explosions. Would that be okay?

So you ended the relationship, but still continue to stalk? Sounds like what Facebook is primarily used for.

I miss the old days when there were no gays and you could be openly racist

I miss having my parents pay for everything and it being socially acceptable.
