WELP, Tim Buckley (known by many other names) is going big or going home with a hardcover anthology set. Looking back, I don't see how I was ever into this strip, but it still has its fans.

Sorry Tim, My heart belongs to Ronnie now. Anyone a fan of this still? Anyone biting?

And this is coming from a damned fool that threw away her money on the "Premium" animated series.

The only CAD comic I've ever seen is the one in the OP (just without the logos and random character faces).

Holy shit. That shit should be carved into your tombstone so your shame will be everlasting.

Where is the inevitable 1 volume version where the second and third panels are removed from every strip?

Kickstarter does sound an easier way to make dough than raising money for charity then using it to buy an expensive art tablet for yourself that you use to copy and paste the same B^U face onto each character.

It gets worse...

Yeah, I am not proud of it, not in the slightest. To think, I could have used all that money for something good, like good video games, or some movies or something. Honestly though, knowing I wasn't the only idiot that spent money on this shit is at least somewhat comforting.

This will never not make me laugh. Can't believe I enjoyed this guys work once upon a time.

Is there an additional panel or something in the original version that all the parodies are cutting out? If there's a punchline here (excluding whatever the parody versions are bringing to the table), I'm missing it.

That Strip is indeed legendary. I made a version a while ago.



But, yeah, I have never been a fan of his work, it always seemed bland to me.

Only Tim Buckley would offer a "Kickstarter-exclusive wallpaper."

I hope it's just a 1920x1080 yellow square with the word "wallpaper" on it.

I always thought CAD was just a crappy webcomic out of the sea that is the internet. It wasn't till the miscarriage comic that I wondered how other cartoonists could hate him so much.

This podcast featuring other known internet comic makers explains it well

OH does it ever. What a scumbag that guy is. It's a great listen if you want somewhere to direct your hate for a while.

CAD getting a successful kickstarter?

I feel so very old...

Don't feel old. Now, if Raine Dog ever gets reimagined, THEN I'll feel old.

But unlike Dana Simpson, I don't think Mr. Buckley, with all due respect. ever took the time to reassess the good his work had to make it great, and take criticism to improve as an artist.

Dana's the anti-Buckley; she took a step back, found herself, didn't let life drama poison her talents, and came back confident enough to win a contest, impress Scott Adams himself, and come up with the most wonderful kid-friendly newspaper strip in years.
Tim could learn a lot from her.

I've seen spoofs of it 8,000 times, but never seen the original. what is it and why is it so infamous? I'm out of the loop here.

It's a comic about his girlfriend having a miscarriage. It was infamous for being a tonal misfire given it's a goofy webcomic.
