This is a series I call “So You’re a Cartoonist?” which deals with all of the typical questions or remarks I receive whenever I tell people that I draw cartoons for a living.
This actually happened at my last convention. I was just chatting with a fan and made a comment about how hilarious I thought it was when people freak out over insanely trivial things (like the color of Link’s hair or my views on Ocarina of Time) when all of a sudden this guy jumped right into the conversation and accosted me before storming off. I’ve dealt with flame on the internet before, but it’s very rare to get it to my face and luckily it helped emphasize my point.
And before you ask, my OPINION is that Ocarina of Time is a great game, but not THE BEST Zelda game of all time the way many Zelda fans seem to hold it up on a pinnacle of greatness. I really don’t want to get into a discussion about this topic. I could’ve chosen a number of different “controversial” things to talk about, but the incident this comic is based off of was when I was talking about Ocarina of Time specifically.
Please, don’t flame me over my opinion. Please don’t even TALK about Ocarina of Time here since Ocarina of Time isn’t the POINT of this comic. The point is how people tend to freak out over trivial and stupid things. Honestly... I shouldn’t have to write that, but I KNOW someone isn’t going to read this and will try to start up an argument about Ocarina of Time (for the lulz) and I really don’t give a crap.
