    So....here it is. DC's webcomic venture....their goal is to improve the current unprofitable status of webcomics, which I would appreciate, but do their choices have what it takes? I'm not seeing much promise....

    ALPHA MONKEY: "You didn't save me. And I fell into that bowl of rice pudding because you farted so loud that booger monster pushed me. I should have let him crush you with his giant snot." This is when I quit reading.

    BATTLEFIELD BABYSITTER: Now this I like. I like the flipped premise of a normal girl in a superhero world, and not only that, she prefers it that way. This has some real potential.

    BLACK SWAN: I saw the first page and laughed my head off, which probably wasn't the reaction they were going for. Wow, is that bad. I had the same experience with The Enders.

    THE DEAD SEAS: The second half of this comic was good, but the first half was confusing beyond belief. I don't like fantasy stories that bog themselves down with so many separate fantasy elements that you have no idea what's going on.

    DEAD IN THE NOW: Looks more like a string of minimalist gallery drawings than a coherent story, or like the kind of comic book they'd sell at Hot Topic. There's a place for such fare, but it's niche. I'd keep this going, but tuck it into a quiet corner.

    RAINING CATS AND DOGS: Uh-oh, this is for girls, so I can't pass proper judgment on it. I don't know if they'd eat it up, but I found the dialogue reduced to an unreadable size, and stupid to boot ("He stole my last-gen My-Pod!") It's not as bad as mentioning a booger monster, but it's nearly there. The art is very nice, though.

    THIS AMERICAN STRIFE: This is even more niche than Dead in the Now. It's a string of unrelated drawings in different styles--some mildly funny, some not so, some not intending to be. I don't need this, I visit a site called Deviantart that delivers that kind of entertainment better.
