WEB COMIC ALL STAR CHAMPION
UPDATES: EVERY WENDSDAY
PROS: Eben 07 as with the last review, has a great story to along with his signature art. His web site is has a even better page design, a cool web comic template, plus more info and links then a year ago. His blog keeps you informed of his latest moves like his "APE" Tour appearance that was a modest success. I also found reading most of his archive that he gives great commentary with each update. A unique thing about this comic is you jump in on any mission, because each chapter does stand on it's own. It's almost like reading a whole new comic each time! The just gets better!
CONS: He only updates once a week.
LAST WORD: This comic still rocks and the present chapter " Three Ring Bound" looks like it is building to something special. but my favorite chapter is still "Goo Finger" and the "Love Of Russia"! In the last review I didn't understand his chapter lay out before but with some tweaks he made on his site from my last analysis-- it now makes perfect sense how he does this declassify each mission system. After the web comics I've seen or reviewed I still haven't seen a comic like this one. He has made moves to get his fans copies and collector art pieces to further enhance his popularity. This comics only real weak point is his update frequency, but some improvement with his popularity couldn't hurt. Being last years champion DBethel, you recieved a 1 point bonus. That gave you a boost, you were really a 8.5 or 8.87500 to be exact.
|OVERALL SCORE: 8.5|
CONCEPT: 10 Pure genius. This missions envolving secret Janitors that clean up the scene after spies! Some how when I reviewed this before I didn't see that they were Janitors, I thought they were the spies. Egg all over my face! Then again I did not see the page that explains all this... at least I don't recall. But don't get it twisted-- these Janitors can kick butt!
ART: 10 The art style is very good and polished. It also doesn't look similar to most of the art styles I have seen online. He draws backgrounds a bit more than when I was viewing his past work.
COLORING OR SHADING: 9.5 The coloring is still spectacular with a good use of shadows and motion blurs here and there. There is just no "wow" colors like I've seen in some web comics like Drowtales. In other words-- color affects that take it to another level.
WRITING AND SPELLING: 9.5 The classified files were a little confusing at first but now that I get it, the story flows pretty well. Grammar looks good but I saw a few misspells. They were not in the comic-- they were in some of his blog post.
WEB PAGE LAYOUT: 9.5 Another thing he improved in. This web comic page template fits perfectly! Info this time around was even easier to find. With this much stuff on the page it still manages to load fast. ENTERTAINMENT: 10 This comic is a whole allot of fun to read. The declassified files page "archives" even have some new ones I never saw before.
POST FREQUENCY: 6.0 This comic updates once a week in color, on every Wednesday. Not bad but I've seen comics with color update 3-5 times a week. But if it's not broke don't fix it.
POPULARITY: 6.0 With a page rank of 4, this web comic does better than most but it still hasn't moved up that much since I reviewed it before. It has fans that do comment but no where on the level of "Wayrift" or "1977 the web comic" that can average 20 to 50 comments a post.
