Comic Site Rant: The House Of Deception

Original Post

Oh god, here’s another comic. I really liked the sketches for this one, but as I continued I started to like it less and less. Looking at it now, I’m pretty indifferent towards it. It could stand to be better, but I don’t hate it. I tried some new things, like correctly sized heads and conventional panel layout, and they work pretty well. The backgrounds are the usual mess of bad mouse painting mixed with pictures I steal from Google images and Tokyo Kid’s official site (which seems to be down at the moment, hm.) I don’t think I’ve made this clear, but I do steal a lot of images when I make comics. I know this is fairly obvious, but I figure I should make it known that I’m not pretending all of Brad’s Hawaiian shirts are my own designs. They’re all stolen. But lots of artists appropriate imagery in similar ways, so I don’t feel too bad. Oh yeah, speaking of stolen images, I’m not going to provide an uncensored version of this comic just so you can see the horrible shota shit Tina is holding. If you really want to see it, hit up Mandarake’s shota section. It’s like the second book there. I didn’t want to hang around too long, that shit is gross.

Another podcast came into existence a day or so ago. It’s me, Omo and Link going on for about fifty minutes about that show everyone has been ripping their manga up over. I’m going to try and do a show with Señor Link again about that Touhou cartoon Maikaze released a while ago. That’ll be neat.

I mentioned last rant that I threw together a little doujinshi on a request from a friend. I got some requests to buy it from some people over the last week, but before we can print anything we need at the minimum thirty requests. We’re not quite there yet. It’s only three bucks, and it’s pretty funny even if you haven’t seen the series in question. So buy! Buy! Buy! We can also do digital copies, but if anything’s going to be printed, we need at least thirty people.

I did my first bit of fanart for 2009, and once again it’s a picture of Chiaki being touched in a bad way. I did this at the beginning of 2008, too. I have no idea why. I’m not even that wild about Chiaki. I mean, she’s cute, but not one of my top 5 lolis or anything. Oh well.

A bunch of cool anime has started, and the coolest is probably Maria+Holic. I don’t want to say too much, as I’m already planning on saying a bunch in a future season review post, but it’s pretty good. It’s not really as crazy as I want it to be, but what can you do? The opening is pretty rad.

Anyway, we’re at the end again. Later.

    I’m sensing a slight double standard here. Comic is nice. Tina’s expression at the end is great. Just that whole “what? nothing strange here” thing.

  2. Pocket Nerd says:

    So, wait… loli is fine and dandy, but shota yaoi “shit is gross”?

    A certain proverb about glass houses and throwing stones comes to mind… :)

  3. Coaxen says:

    Yaoi shota is gross probably because it’s only one step to loli. One very small, short, and hairless step.

    I’ve seen some apparently-loli doujin that one time. But it turned out to be shota crossdressing crap.
    It was truly an ABOMINATION. I wish no one to see such horseturd.

  4. Oh, I am fully aware of the double standard at work here. That’s how we roll at Mistakes of Youth.

    Checked the shota shit at the Mandarake. It seems more male oriented (based on the impression from the sample pictures) and looked hot (I will not be visiting that category in the near future).

    This comic made me lol so hard.

    I love Tina, because even if she’s just a misogynistic fantasy of yours to draw someone in a skirt she’s still a sick f*ck shota and yaoi fangirl (and those are THE BEST).

  7. the monster says:

    some strips’ humour tend to escape me, but this one made me lol pretty hard

  8. tomoyo says:

    What? It wasn’t Boku no Pico (or one of its sequels)? Aww.

    Still, I see Tina’s tastes are progressing! :3

  9. Icy-nee-san says:

    I had the same reaction XD

    >>Pocket Nerd

    Oh there is a double standard in WAH’s views, but I think it’s also in character for Brad to simply hate shota. There has been plenty of instances in the past of him getting angry at Rets for buying loli-incest shit instore.

  11. Brad is one of those adult anime fans who hates anything that makes what he likes embarrassing.

  12. sarahvait says:


    I don’t know if this has been asked, but is Brad based on a real person? I find him to be an extremely well-created character if he’s not.

  13. Anon of Boston says:

    Gotta hand it to you, that is a very nicely done Tokyokid backdrop

  14. Darth says:

    A thought occurs: if Brad hates both shota and loli porn with a passion, why is he even carrying it in his store?

  15. He doesn’t own the store, he just works there. One of these days I may introduce his boss.

    >>I don’t know if this has been asked, but is Brad based on a real person? I find him to be an extremely well-created character if he’s not.

    Like I said earlier, Brad is based off of those old-school anime fans who hate everything made after 1990. It just happens that I know a lot of people like that, so maybe that’s why he comes off as very… real?

  16. Anon says:

    Hmm, considering your “tastes” why does Chiaki look like shes in her 20’s or something?

    Seems really odd, lol..
