|This is a textbook example of why writers are an essential part of webcomics. I saw the first strip and I thought, "wow, this may be a really good webcomic, neat original art, the beginnings of what could be a cool story, lets check this out" unfortunately, I acted on that impulse, and to merely say that the other comics were not as good as the setup would do a disservice. The other comics WERE AWFUL! The art while still good could not begin to stem the immense failings of the writing.
The comic consists mainly of pop culture references and a story that simultaneously goes too fast and to slow, character development is muted at best, and jokes, either fail, or are incomprehensible.
Let me show you what I mean, the fifteenth comic Sarah Zero 015 - Ohhhh YEAAAHHHHHH!! features as the joke the kool-aid man jumping out of a wall near the street race two of the characters are participating in (why they are street racing, that i have no idea) why the kool-aid man pops out of the wall, no clue, it might have been funny the first time it was done this millennium, but Family guy did it, Penny-arcade did it. And for both of them, it at least made sense, and was moderately funny. Instead, here it is random, and pointless a pop culture reference, that is as empty and bland as the comic itself.
Now, can the use of pop culture references make a good comic? why, yes they can, on the kool-aid man angle, we look at one of the recent Applegeeks and see the exact same pop culture reference, however, here it works, as opposed to being tepid and dull. Applegeeks Issue 187 | Oh Yeah! a pop culture reference used to enhance a comic, rather than just exist.
now, back to Sarah Zero (although switching from Applegeeks to Sarah Zero is depressing) Sarah Zero gets just that recommendation from me, zero, while I did enjoy the art, this was a perfect case of the import of writing in a comic. If your comic doesn’t have an at least decent script, no amount of art will cover that flaw.
