I Tried, Robyn.

I find it a bit hard to write about Roddy's Film Companion. It's one of my favorite webcomics, but I know the author personally. And let's not forget that, when I'm writing this, she's probably the only person reading this blog, thus making it unnecessary to advertise her comic. But you know, I am hoping to gain some new readers eventually.

The dialogue in this comic is just so... natural. It's like a real couple talking to each other. It's intimate, subtle, human. It doesn't go for easy punchlines and puns. The expressions are the same way: real and human, yet somehow comically endearing.

I especially like this strip. And eh... *feels self conscious*

Maybe I'll give this a shot later.


  1. I can't believe you actually read Roddy's Film Companion! I thought NOBODY DID! I assumed my reputation had been generated solely through the fact that:
    a) I run the comics weekend, and
    b) Roddy's Film Companion is rather long, and therefore, "good."

    I am really, really touched that you like it.

  2. Awww, of course I like it! Have a little self esteem :D

    I really like the way you write dialogue. It's pleasant to read something that sounds like real talk between people. I think only you, American Elf and Qwantz have managed that. (Or maybe I know weirder people than most comic artists?)

  3. I choose to take it as a profound compliment. A profound compliment indeed.

  4. You should! It's a great comic. :*
