Some of these could be fairly badass, and provide more obvious explanation that you don't need to be an overseer for in order to comprehend.

This is my wish, can we have some sunday comics with text? Very Happy

The beauty of this thread is that we all know that no matter what we vote, Tat will shrug it off and just do what he wants. As he should. Yet we vote anyway.

I actually really like the wordless strips, but I'm the only one who's voted "no." o_o Am I alone...?

I dunno, I really like how hard-hitting the message can be with only visuals. It's one of the strengths of this media.

Aww damnit now I have to hand in my don't care card.

I do think some of the wordless strips really hit home but sometimes I think a few words wouldn't hurt. Nevertheless, Tat has done a good job at always wanting me to go to Sinfest first thing on a Sunday so I can't complain.

Wordless strips take a hell of a lot of skill to pull off. Tat is amazing at it. I like the strips with dialogue and no dialogue, but I would be sad for lack of wordless strips because they are powerful.

WHY WOULD YOU EVEN THINK OF THIS AAAA

THERE'S A VERY GOOD REASON FOR THIS NOT TO EVEN CROSS YOUR MIND AND IT HAS ALREADY BEEN STATED SUCCINCTLY

yeah, that's the thing - i don't think you can set some a priori standard for number of strips with words. sometimes the story is best told with words, sometimes not.

another thing to remember - tat has done a lot of experimenting with this strip. it's easiest to see with the artwork - you can go back through the archives and see different "periods". (and if you check the forums, you can see people complaining about "the way he's drawing now" Razz) now, he may be experimenting with how to best tell stories - which means seeing what effects he can get without words. he seems to be doing a lot of that now; well, that's all part of learning something.

it's kinda cool, watching him develop as an artist and a story-teller. be patient - once he's decided what he can do and what he likes doing with this particular form, he's bound to go try another.

I voted yes but would like to add that I like the silent strips, I'd just like some with dialogue as well.

Words... Lack of them. It doesn't really matter. Trust me, Tat knows what he's doing and there's a very clear function to the lack of words, just like there's a purpose to their presence. As long as they remain good, Tat can do what he wants as far as I'm concerned.

Tat is a true artist. However he choses to present an opinion, it will have validity.
