perky … isn’t she?
Not really a fan of the series, he’s so rich and powerful everyone even his own enemies use his products, he can fly around the city in a helicopter and a rampaging monster from his own labs can just tear up the joint. And at the end of the day, he’ll use his vast wealth to buy himself out of trouble.
It’s a rather boring comic and character design in my opinion and these outrageous situations are starting to become stupid.
Well Trish? Well!? Well!?
Twittims indeed sir! Well played.
Is this what we’ll be left with after Nightmare Theatre leaves? I’m not so sure I’ll be visiting Dumm as much. Wicked Wickle is turning out to be the only comic on this site that is always entertaining, well drawn, and consistently posted. More and more disappointment from Dumm :(
It’s just… what character am I supposed to care for, or relate to? That new assistant guy you introduced with the long hair could’ve been it, but he’s just a sex-obsessed “wassup duuuude!” cliche. Every character is a one dimensional, egotistical annoyance.
I know creating a comic is hard, but it will never work if you don’t have the right characters, which is where the main problem lies. And I think I know how to fix Rad Raz – it was something you were sort of doing right at the start, but you went in a completely different direction for some reason. Look at Skadi – the main character is easily angered and devours innocent animals, but it’s contrasted with the likeable character Diseasoid. (Side note – I actually think Skadi is likeable too, but I’m just using this as an example.) You had Deb to contrast with Raz’s antics – she was the “straight man”. But then recently, you made her just as insane as Raz. Why?
I don’t know. The main problem with this comic is the characters, I guess. They have no souls?
You’re not trolling if you’re actually presenting thought out reasons for not liking the comic, which you are. When Deb was more of a “straight man” I got complaints to the effect of she seemed like she was being used or taken advantage of, or, at the very least, not getting anything out of her involvement with RAZ. I’ve taken her in a little different direction to show people that she and RAZ are actually friends, and yes, she is just as crazy as him, in her own way. Otherwise, why would she stay?
When it comes down to it, though, everyone in the RAZ world is nuts, so if you’re looking for an ordinary person to relate to, there isn’t one. If that isn’t up your alley, I see why you don’t like it. And yes, RAZ is kind of soulless. To me that’s funny (Mr. Burns is my favorite character on the Simpsons), but it’s probably not for everyone. You’re not supposed to like him or respect him or look up to him, you’re just along for the ride. If RAZ were a real person, I would hate him. But he’s a cartoon, so he can’t hurt you.
Other things I like that inform his character: Ferris Beuller and Kanye West. Ferris Beuller never loses, but everyone loves him. A loooooot of people can’t stand Kanye West’s persona. Probably a lot of those same people would find RAZ completely unlikable.
In short, I see why you don’t like it, but some people do. If those are the reasons you don’t like it, you’ll probably continue not liking it. There are new characters coming down the pipeline, but I can’t guarantee that you’ll relate to any of them any better. They’re kinda weird.
wow, guys. I love this comic, are you even reading the same one as me?
The artwork has improved quite a bit since Rad Raz first started. More cartoony and lively looking, it’s one of my favorites here at Dumm. I hope all negative comments don’t get you down.
Thanks for noticing! And don’t worry, I’ve gotten used to the fact that whenever I’m really excited and happy with how a particular page turns out, it gets tons of negative comments. This is actually one of my favorite pages to date.
Just wanted to say that I really like the artwork as well, especially the angles/perspectives. They’re stylized and a little oblong while still having clarity. I really like Rad Raz, keep up the good work!
It’s definitely on an upward trend, but so are criticisers. I hated the first few strips, but RR is developing really well now. If people don’t want to check out Sat’s Dumm, they are welcome to a staring match with my arsehole instead.
Rad Raz has definitly grown on me, I think its funny and as others pointed out, the strip and art have continualy developed over time. I like the little details hidden in each (razpad. giggle) It keeps getting better. I also love most of the other comics that Dumm has been showing. The unique thing about Dumm is that every day there’s something new, and over time when one story/artist ends a new one fills in the slot. Its like tv, but with comics. Not too many sites are updated daily. I think its also diffucult for readers to remember that the artists do not get paid to make these comics, AND to make them is an extra thing along with thier day job/career/what they do to pay the bills. I’m thankful for my daily dose of dumm, thats for sure. Keep up the great work Raz! (and Strawberryskadiwicklezooanalogand1930stoo) <3
Rad Raz hasn’t been one of the worst comics to show up at Dumm Comics, that’s for sure (we already know my stance on the others, so we won’t get into that).
But it’s far from one of my favorites.The art style is decent, my biggest complaint is the characters and the story itself. When you get right down to it, almost every story, every joke is always the same thing, Raz abusing the system and using money to get out of it or Raz being an evil bastard or something. The story, dialogs and characters might change, but the basic structure of the comic never changes.
I love that helicopter. It’s like a bubble pinned to a hotdog
I wonder if Trish and Radley are ex-lovers?
My favorite one is still when he travels forward in time to pee on his own grave.
That’s still my favorite, too. If you like that one, you might really like something that’s coming down the pipeline.
