"Darkslayers", by Ernst Banen. Bad comic. I say this so quickly mainly because the archive is 12 comics long, I just re-read it, and I still have no idea what's going on. Something about a school...? Buried artifacts...? Vampires...? I really have no idea.

The comic's storytelling qualities notwithstanding, there's just one thing that really caught my attention... if you’re going to draw the bubbles in the comic, you may as well letter it yourself while you're at it. That way, you’ll know that the words will fit. Look at how he has to space the words in the last panel of that comic; he has to angle the text so it fits!

That, and listen to how he decribes it on his entry description:

"Tune in on the adventures of Jake 'Rainwalker' and his friends as they fight the demon Xenon."

“Jake ‘Rainwalker’”? That needs a last name. His nickname can’t just hang like that.


Alright, alright. Since it's still "young," with only 12 comics in its archive, it's a "bad comic" so far. Still means it's a bad comic, though.
