Reddit is a strange place. They complain that not enough original content gets submitted. Most everything is a “repost” of old content. But when I (or other people who make webcomics or videos) post my own user generated original content… I get blasted for self-promotion. Also, according to that website, I’m super gay. Congratulations, reddit, you did it.
You could have the most original of original content, and that website would still shit all over you. I’ve posted really ridiculous comics before, only to have an obvious joke taken too literally. Countless comics have been deconstructed and commented with “well I wouldn’t do that” or something similar.
BUT THAT’S THE POINT. OF COURSE YOU WOULDN’T DO THAT. IT’S A COMIC. IT IS COMEDY. HALF THE THINGS IN COMEDIES YOU WOULDN’T DO, BUT THEN YOU WOULD NOT HAVE COMEDIC CONFLICT.But hey, a solid chunk of our site views come from reddit, so also… thank you?
Unfortunately, Reddit is one of those places on the internet that really kinda sucks, but a lot of content creators are forced to deal with in order to stand a chance at a modicum of interest.
Here is our Archive of all published Mousebear Comics. Marvel at how terrible the quality used to be (or still is). These are merely cynical musings of two cautiously handsome Schadenfreudes. That’s right, we are increasingly bitterly or sneeringly distrustful, contemptuous, or pessimistic.
We welcome you to our accumulation of visual historical records organized over the lifetime of Mousebear Comedy. These comics have been selected for permanent or long-term preservation on grounds of their enduring personal value.
