Top 10 comments from comics #226 to #250

On 2 December 2010 I posted a list of the best comments made by our readers until then. I want to make this a regular feature now, posting the 10 best resp. funniest comments from a bunch of around 25 comics each time.

So here is my personal selection from the strips #226 to #250 in our archive. Of course I didn’t read every single comment (again), but I also had a look at those comments that only received a couple of upvotes because they appeared so late in the comment history.

Although regular commentators like AmbiValent and Blitzkrieg1701 are also featured, AckAckAck completely ruled the competition with four comments that made it into the list.

Comment by MrGBH on the strip Bull’s Eye I:

Comment by AckAckAck on the strip Already Gone:

After Hero, the next song is Aerith Theme song.

Hope Sandra won’t freak out.

Comment by AckAckAck on the strip Dinner:

Our parents always say not to play with our food, but they never say anything about not to talk with them….

*see my bag of peanuts*

“Umm…. hi…. how are you today…. oh…. that’s right, yes….. so…. you feel kinda nutty today…..”

Comment by coyoteBR on the strip Hazel On The Run I:

Comment by Blitzkrieg1701 on the strip Released:

Oh no! It’s their Darker and Edgier 90’s counterparts!

Comment by AmbiValent on the strip Matchbox Cars And Quantum Physics:

Tim: I’m curious as to how she can re-enact the double slit experiment with matchbox cars. I mean, how can she show that light separates in all directions but only light the superposes in-phase remain visible, all with physical metal objects?

I thought of that… but to get the correct outcome she’d only need to turn the matchbox cars into something like a fluid, which is a talent many younger siblings possess.

Comment by AckAckAck on the strip Unpleasant Surprise I:

Harvey got bitten by Woo! then at full moon he will turn into a…. WERERACCOON!

The insticts of the raccoon taking over!

Fish! mice! snake! cookies! bellyrub!

Twilight and Smarty Pants

As a Calvin and Hobbes and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fan, this crossover by Ripfrost (source) is one of the best things I’ve ever seen. Click on the image for a larger version.

Sandra and Woo by Dan Long

Some time ago Dan Long, the creator of the webcomic Edmund Finney’s Quest to Find the Meaning of Life, offered two book collections that included original drawings as an extra.

For the first page of book 2, I commissioned a drawing of Sandra and Woo book 2. Here it is (Click on the image for a larger version):

For book 1, I requested a drawing of Edmund and for the third included drawing I asked for Crushbruiser (Click on the images for larger versions):

Poll results

From 10 December 2011 to 11 August 2012, the following eight polls ran on Sandra and Woo. All of them got over a thousand votes and it’s time to present the results.

Poll from 10 December 2011:

Poll Nr. 41

Unsurprisingly, the short story arc about Larisa’s and her father’s differing view on art got the most votes. Although single strips of it were criticised, the long story of Sandra’s search for Woo got 17% of the votes.

Poll from 10 December 2011:

Poll Nr. 42

Only a tiny minority of our readers thinks that the comment rating feature is bad.

Poll from 10 December 2011:

Poll Nr. 43

A good number of the Sandra and Woo readers also read Gaia. Some want to wait until more material is available.

Poll from 10 December 2011:

Poll Nr. 44

Fluttershy is best pony. Rarity needs more love, though.

Poll from 6 April 2012:

Poll Nr. 45

According to our readers the quality of the story lines posted from strip #315 to strip #355 was pretty consistent.

Poll from 6 April 2012:

Poll Nr. 46

$10 to $15 for an Sandra and Woo seems to be a reasonable price according to our readers. Of course, the final price also depends on the chuck of the money going to the sales platform.

Poll from 6 April 2012:

Poll Nr. 47

Role-playing game are by far the most popular genre. One of the most surprising results of any poll running on Sandra and Woo is the unpopularity of action games with just 2% of the votes although it’s the genre with the most games and best sales numbers.

Poll from 6 April 2012:

Poll Nr. 48

Or, in other words, 49% of our readers pirate music, 33% pirate movies, 29% pirate games and 34% pirate no media. (There’s a calculation error regarding the percent value of the last option.) I’m sure these numbers would be much lower if big media would treat their customers not like potential criminals and offered DRM free content.
