I only recently learned of the “fourth wall.”
So, reality is contained in a building next to a pub in a comic strip? I can live with that. I wonder if comic bourbon is any better than reality bourbon?
Comic things are always better than real life things, obviously.
Shouldn’t it be “fourth” wall instead of “forth”? Just pointing that out…ALSO I love when characters break the 4th wall. Idk why but it’s so funny to me! I think one of my favorites is this one: http://blipcomic.com/729/ While lacking subtlety its still hilarityAlso OW i feel bad for Joseph
Ah, yeah. I spent nearly 12 hours on this strip straight… by the time I was done I was way to tired to grammar check. heh. Thanks for pointing it out. I just now fixed it.Glad you liked the idea, I wasn’t sure if it would go over well / people would get it.
Joseph is back on shit creek it seams. lol
Kudos to breaking the fourth wall in an effort to point out not breaking the fourth wall. For a character to be aware of the fourth wall and the attempt to break it, would they not have to first have to be aware of the fourth wall? Characters can’t be aware of the fourth wall without breaking the fourth wall!Unless we’re breaking the fourth wall right now… Neo.
Arguably more fantastic than fourth-wall breakage would be lampshading:
Specifically, lampshading cerebus syndrome. TVTropes – BOOM!
Mind-boggling statement my friend. Being that she’s a performer, I’m sure she was aware of it, where as I didn’t ever want to have another character “break that wall” because I want it to be more like the Truman show for them. THEY have no idea that they are being watch, the Pop Villain does. COS SHES EVIL! :3Lol, I’ve never actually read Short Packed before, but that one was pretty good. :]
I think that’s a special kind of evil. The “I know I’m a character in a story, but I’ma lord it over you the way I should because you think it’s real!”Well that’s just DIABOLICAL (even funnier when you imagine it in the voice of Sarge from RedvsBlue).
Hes been having a little trouble staying conscious lately. I think Space balls did it best as far movies goes. http://youtu.be/VeZ9HhHU86o
HAHA, man, I forgot about that movie. That was a good one.
Fourth wall, LOL.Autumn should be helping Joseph out… she has full health…
Oh she’ll be fighting the Pop Villain. I’m just jumping around a lot since there are so many characters all spread out in different places at the moment.
D: OH MY GOD!!! JOSEPH!!! I… i… i… is he even still alive?And wow, PV just busted out her impression of Alucard.
Dracula spelled backwards, from the anime Hellsing.
Interesting… I’ve always meant to get around to watching that show. Is it good?
No clue, I’m one of those people that learns things via “O Rly” mode of internet activity.
Ah, the good ol’ ghetto googles.
The original was… alright. Very well done throughout the show, but the last episode made it fall flat on its face. Better to get the re-release (so I’ve heard, anyway. I’ve yet to see it myself).
“Made it fall flat on its face”? As in it was terrible? That’s a shame, if so. I HATE when the endings of shows/comics/movies are underwelming.
David isn’t kidding, the final episode was a gigantic piece of crap that made me sour on the second half of the series. The new series is called Hellsing Ultimate, and so far it seems to be getting some pretty good reviews, and the fans like it as well. I’m going to have to just netflix it and see.I’m probably biased as a former manga dork who loves the monstrous versions of vampires versus the garbage of drama, dark romance, angst spewing jackasses who also just happen to be vampires. Come on Hollywood, when are we getting a 13 Bullets movie?
Hellsing (the first one) kind of went off on it’s own when it caught up with the manga and it did not end good. Hellsing Ultimate, however, has – as far as I know – stayed more true to the story of the manga.
When I finally get a chance, I’ll have to check it out then. :]
yes, read/watch Hellsing. it will blow you mind! plus you get to see a real vampire, not a sparkly moron.
Don’t forget Mr Alucard from Monster Squad, and the old hammer films.
Alucard and the other vamps in Hellsing would sometimes bust out a smile that would make a great white stutter. Not him, but it gives you an idea.http://images.wikia.com/hellsing/images/5/5d/Rip_van_Winkle.png
Good or bad depends on your taste. I haven’t checked out the newer anime version of Hellsing, but I really liked the manga while not liking the second half of the older anime. But if you can get into nazi vampires, hand guns that could be used to kill rhinos, and some other balls to the wall crazy scenes, you might like it.
poor Joesy boy never aerodynamic enough to break it but light enough to be hit it like a penny getting shot out of a cannon.lol last panel PV and blood tusk’s like a walrus with a gum disease
LOL I didn’t even realize that they looked like tusks till you pointed that out. Now that is ALL I can see.
well somtimes it takes an idiot to see whats right in front of peoples faces P.S. intresting new pic i personally would have chosen a picture of a robot elephant with a mustache being riden by Slash( the guitar guy if you didnt know who i was talking about)
Oh man I love me some 4th wall jokes!I actually did that strip a month before release as my buffer is huge. It’s quite fun to use your characters and poke fun at your own comic lol.
Keep up the great work as always, thanks for the mention!
Heh, yeah, I probably wont do another joke like this again being that I figured only the Pop Villain would be self aware of her “performance,” but it was a fun strip to come up with.No Problem man, hopefully you got a few new readers or something out of that link. :]
She has really big hands
She is slowly becoming more demented.
This comic is starting to remind me of Scott Pilgrim…
Surprised that you’re only now saying that. Scott Pilgrim is obviously an influence of L.A.W.L.S. for certain things.
PS. Once this action scene is over, things will go back to the “day to day” sorta of strips for a while.
lol you people accually watched that movie?my children you need to know how too pick better movies
Who said anything about the movie? I’m talking about the comics.
Personally, I loved both.
Haven’t seen it yet, i just hate when people assume things like that..
Assume things like what exactly? Sorry this thread is starting to confuse me a bit. lol
No problem.. I meant when people assume I’m talking about something, and then continue to bash it.
Well, I only recently got into Scott Pilgrim. So if you made any references to him, it probably went right over my head.
Will Joseph get dangerous? Toon in next week!
only recently? wow
heh, yeah… we you know how webcomics/writing goes… you learn things as you go. :]
true true true. I learned about it when I learned about Deadpool.Homestuck was also a HUGE contributor to my experience with web/comics and fourth walls.
What happened in deadpool?
Deadpool may not have invented breaking the forth wall but he is surely the most practiced at it.
Were talking about the Marvel character right?
Simply flawless. I can never, and will never get enough of this comic XD
Why thank you! I greatly appreciate that. :]
Poor Joseph… Not only is he forced to take on Pop Villain, but he’s probably going to get hit by Cadence for being in the ladies room, too.
LOL! Good point, he always find’s himself in the worst situations to make girls mad at him, doesn’t he?
Broke the Four-wall–BA-DUMP-TCHEE
Thank You, I’m here all night!
D. D! There’s Bieber on your page. I kid you not.And I was worried about 4th wall skirting pop villains.
…Seriously – Right THUR ======>
LOL wow, stupid ad tagging. YOU KNOW YOU LIKE BIEBER!
He’s still there… watching… -huddles in corner-
Herp derp. That joke was terrible. I loved it.
I can’t quite tell if you’re being facetious or not.
I am in no way treating serious issues with deliberately inappropriate humor. The joke was absolutely horrendous, but that doesn’t change the fact that I enjoyed in thoroughly.
haha, well I’m glad you still liked it. Not every joke is gonna be an ace in the hole. :] Hope tomorrows strip makes up for this one.
Havent commented in a while but yeah, you and Lawls are still awesome though I somehow missed the big numbers on the first read through of this due to my super panda observation skills, I mean seriously my eyes are massive
Welcome back and thanks!Meh, it all happens to us sometimes… I probably forgot they were there at some point while I drew it anyway. ^_~
Violence and metahumor! Is there anything better? Deadpool says no….But then there was a girl with her pants down…
Haha, glad you liked it.
Poor girl, just wanted to attend to some business in peace.On the other hand, she’s pretty lucky she wasn’t standing up just then.
It’s a good thing chicks don’t stand to pee! lol
Ohhh man, I’ve got some news for you.
Some can use a funnel looking deal so they can pee standing up, and some have practiced enough to be able to do it without one.
If you dont quite make the required donation, it might be worth putting in a couple of hundred yourself. It would be a real shame to miss out on your dream just because you fell a percent or 2 short of the target.
I’m actually not able to donate any of my own funds. If I attempt to they will put a hold on all my funds and I will make no money at all. Sucks, but Amazon has rules against that. :/
