#12, The Addiction du Jour has been posted on Shuriken Diaries. If you check underneath the main post, at the moment, there's some links to two very cool sets of art from different people, one on ComicSpace and another straight to the webcomic.
What do you guys think about comics that break the 4th wall? I'm not talking about comics that do it in every strip, but rather the comics that do it only occasionally at the most. I freakin' hate it. More often than not it seems like a cheap way out when you have some writer's block.
And there's nothing worse than a comic that breaks the wall in the very first strip in that unbearably bad way, a la "Hi readers, this is our first strip" or two guys sitting on a couch saying "Man, we should start a webcomic" kind of junk. But, while I know I'm not alone, I'm wondering what the people of ComixTalk think. Anyone guilty of such a sin, and do you regret it, or am I just being an arse and now I'm on your blacklist?
