Sinfest not updating
Anything sent to us will get reviewed – we promise! We also promise honesty in our reviews, which are entirely subjective, but if we like your book we’ll let you and our audience know. Starting as a commentary on casual and acceptable corruption in mainstream society, the characters were little more than caricatures at first, used to lampoon the accepted levels of hypocrisy that we all rely on to get through our everyday lives.
We tend to look at thematic elements when it comes to quality storytelling, and we talk about the context of those stories on our site. The interesting point about Sinfest is that it looked at this hypocrisy without judgment, accepting it as a part of societal norms.
These are the people who can eat only one potato chip.
More sensible people time themselves and read up a little at a time.
Anything at four or more symbols is of the highest possible quality. Sinfest is the personal project of Tatsuya Ishida, who uses a deceptively simple format to discuss a multitude of topics ranging from radical feminism to politics to hetero-normativity.
There’s things we do every day, small and selfish things that we don’t think about that make other people’s lives worse, and we tend not to notice or brush it off. There’s more characterization of women in this one strip than Sinfest has had in the last two or three years combined. I’ve read and commented on Sinfest for years, and I can’t remember another instance of two female characters having even this level of disagreement with each other like Becky and Katie do here (also, given how infamously terrible Sinfest is at naming characters, Becky got name-dropped right away, and Lilith and Katie even got their names re-iterated in case you forgot! And not only does this gag-a-day comic actually have a gag, it’s one that both deepens Kate as a character by revealing her srs personality is a bit of an act, while providing some plot detail in that Katie apparently doesn’t have a problem with Lucifer at this point in the timeline.So, every week we do a review of that week’s comics called God of Comics. The systematic read-through is a common larval stage of more-than-casual fans of a webcomic.
It is not unusual for fans who have already been following a series to undertake several more archive binges, often initiated by an Archive Trawl.
The rating system remains the same; we rate on a five symbol scale.
