|Salen sits down and blinks. "Oooh? Subscription, so I can review stuff? Oh nifty. Oh, well, I guess I should get to my review of Elf Only Inn."
"Well, seeing as I hadn't read this comic before, except for 1 or 2 comics, I'd never really gone through and read the comic. When you read as many as I do, you tend to try and limit yourself and the amount of comics you read."
"But then I went and finally sat down and read the whole archive of the comic. Needless to say, I was dying with laughter. There's something about the comic that really hits home. Mostly the fact that I've 'Been There, Done That', and yet its so much worst as well. But worst in a GREAT way. The comic is all about roleplaying, chat rooms, and the dregs that are attracted to one in particular."
ART: "The Mainstay of all comics, except for those that aren't... In the beginning, the art is all Cut&Pasted, with some minor retouching of faces for different expressions. In one specific comic, all they did was flip the character image over to get him to lean to the left instead of the right, even though its obvious the image was just flipped."
"Normally, you'd shoot a comic because of stuff like this. But in Elf Only Inn, it just makes the surreal nature of the Chatroom/Elven Inn all that more rediculious."
"Later on, the C&P art is replaced with actual drawings. The art does get better, as well, and at the same time, you still feel like your reading the same comic. And thats good. In all actuality, drawing the characters allow for even more outrageous situations to be portrayed, like NINJAS! *tching!*"
PLOT: "There's plot here? Bah. Who needs plot when you have a bunch of horrible roleplayers all hanging out in a chat room, while a few not-so horrible roleplayers try and actually do stuff. Ok, so there is a sort of plot that goes through the comic, but mostly its all just to get to a big joke near the end. And thats good. Comics that can make you laugh at the absurdity of some situations just HAVE to be told. This is one of them."
CHARACTERS: "Uh... well, you've never seen such a mixed lot of stereotypical characters that aren't elven hanging out at an Elven Inn that it hurts. Really, some of the characters just hurt the brain. Like goku666. I think the phrase "what is ur pwr lvl?" will send chills through my brain like no other. *twitch* But in some way... the character just FITS the comic way to well, mostly for being that ONE person that just has NO clue whatsoever."
"If you learn anything at all kids, its that learning to spell, and learning to roleplay properly is good."
WRITING: "It hurts, it stings!" Salen shakes his head, "The only bad thing I have to say about that statement, is its true. Some of the writing is just HORRIBLE. But, in this comic, horrible writing is good, because this is a comic to spoof chatrooms and roleplaying that goes on in them. To say that the writing was horrible, is just a sad nod to the fact that its also very VERY true. And thats why its good. Dook."
OVERALL: "Uh... well, if your idea of humor is poking fun at what comes from chatrooms and roleplaying, and bad roleplaying at that, well look no further! This is the comic you've always dreamed about. Its so bad, its GREAT! What are you waiting for? Go read this comic now? Oh, one final passing statistic before I go."
