Best comic ever, can't wait 'til the new season ^^ Yay Sky!
Masterweaver: You guys will have to wait a while for the new season, details about it are in the news page.
Wow, that's good stuff. I figured Charlie was gonna win...
Seriously, great ending. Look forward to season 2!
Well, i did want Hogan to win but,after he was voted off i wanted sky to win
YES! He did it! Sky won! Hoowoo! Yeaa!!!!!!!! And Charlie looks alot different in those red clothes. I thought she was goth.
It took 6 hours to read this series, and I have at least one more FULL series to go...wow...You have truly earned my respect
WOOOOOOOOOOOO00000000oooooooooooo..*Faints from lack of oxygen(again) and over excitement*
jUST READ THIS AGAIN AND iM SUPER sATISFIED WITH THE WINNER!
Sky was in My opinion your best Sprite character(He looks really cool). He was unafraid to go the extra 5,280ft. (a mile) and he was brilliant strategy wise.
I remember When I saw this comic on D.A. I saw him and I was like "Oh cool a Sly Cooper character I hope he wins" and speakofthedevil he did win!
I really liked this Season the most because Sky was such a CHARACTER. XP
Sky was actually the first SFC character I had ever made, and existed long before it started. I wanted to do a Survivor Comic with Sky as the winner, but I needed a reason to include a Fan Character, so thats how the comic was created
Just found this comic and Yes1!!!!! Sky won the finale! Him and Craig were my two favorite characters lol. Great comic!!!
Bleh, didn't really like Sky by the end, was not pleased.
Did Hogan and Taylor get together afterwards btw?
I admit that I skipped from the final Tribal Council to the Finale... but I just knew that Sky would win...
BUt to the second place winner... I didn't like Charlie, but she's not actually too bad of a character. She's creepy, but not as creepy as she was.
For Sky, GREAT JOB, SKY! Thanks to Taylor and Hogan, you managed to make it far!
Good job on this first season! I hope the other seasons are as good... I'm going to take a quick look around.
I was rooting for Sky right when I started reading this comic! :)
I'm not trolling or anything, just some constructive criticism,
but it seems (to me at least) that the characters are a tiny bit inconsistent, I don't understand any of there motives and it seems as though they change personalities willy-nilly,
also there is no way that back on Day 9 that Sky's plan to tell Bea and Craig that he wants to quit would work in the reality of the game, surely there would've been some communication between Bea, Craig, Meredith & Rene before tribal council, Bea would've had to have been insane to just flat out refuse to say who wanted to quit at tribal, bit too convenient if you ask me.
A lot of the time it feels as though i'm just being told how to feel about a certain character and there actions as apposed to actually being shown. But other than that enjoyable read,I'm not expecting full on character studies or anything, the sprites are really good and Hugo was robbed.
Yeah, Alot of those are valid. I was pretty bad back then :p
SFC 1 Character Rankings
I'm reading through all the season AGAIN and decided I should post character rankings while they are fresh in my mind, just for fun.
16-Eugene(Resident Evil/16th): Didn't really have any time to show off his character.
15-Oran (Animal Crossing/13th): Annoying. Only higher than Eugene because he had some impact.
14-Bea (Sonic The Hedgehog/14th): Was kind of sarcastic and bitchy. Fun.
13-Suzanna (The Sims/15th): Seemed really nice.
12-Meredith (Final Fantasy/8th): She just seemed kinda boring in comparison to Rene, who was the real mastermind.
11-Phil (Pokemon/11th): He was fun and nice. I kinda liked the average guy thing without being boring.
10-Taylor (Earthbound/4th): Not so much a Taylor fan as much as just the ineteresting storylines she brought with the whole sky/taylor/hogan thing. It would be hard not say that she was not a central point of the game despite not doing much.
9-Hugo (Legend of Zelda/5th): He was fun too. I enjoyed his bitterness and if that idol hadn't been fake he would have maybe won it.
8- Lyle (Megaman/12th): Lyle was fun because he was such a wuss and he went out with a bang. I enjoyed him more this readthrough then I have before.
7-Craig (Halo/6th): Oh Craig. The original village idot archetype of SFC. He's one of the best too. Entertaining all the way through.
6-Wendy (Monkey Island/9th): Robbed. I thought Wendy was great.*spoilers* I was really glad she returned in SFCAS.
5-Hogan (Mario Sports/3rd): SO ROBBED. I can't believe Sky won the last immunity. If he hadn't there's no way Hogan would have lost.
4-Pat (F-Zero/10th): I just really enjoyed Pat. She was a bitch but she also had the game to back it up.
3-Rene (Starfox/7th): Rene would have been number 2 except for she was so cocky for sa bit there. She was one of the best players of the season and She controlled a large part of the game. Love her.
2-Skylar (Sly Cooper/WINNER): The best player of the season hands down. He destroyed the post-merge and caused two of the best tribal in SFC history. Great and deserving winner.
1-Charlie (Silent Hill/Runner-up): Charlie was my definite favourite this season. She was polarizing yet remained safe the majority of the game. And she only lost by one vote. *spoiler* so glad she came back at SFCAS
Top 5 players:
Yay Sky won...
Now for season 2....
Excellent job SWSU!!! I loved reading this strip!
Just a few notes (not that any will ever care to read them, lol)
Twists: Very simple season other than the way the idol clues were handed out (partner twist). I like that since it's not convoluted and more realistic.
Eugene: Not much impact, seemed more the victim.
Suzanna: Nice, but definitely not cut out for this game.
Bea: Wished she lasted longer and her boot was easily the most unrealistic of them all.
Oran: Maybe the most pathetic of them all, yes I'm included Craig, who at least lasted a long time.
Lyle: Total pussy who redeems himself in the end. Pretty invisible till his boot episode however, so not very memorable.
Phil: Went from food driven to likeable nice guy, just not a real player though.
Pat: Started out as a bitch, but slowly improved her position and personality. At the end of her time, I was rooting for her. One of the better characters of this season.
Wendy: Could've been the hero of the season had she just lasted a bit longer. Sad she lost, but at least she (barely) made the jury.
Merideth: Forgettable. Her hair was easily the most interesting thing about her. Only occasionally did she actually live up to the arrogant demeanor that she was given, I didn't think she was so bad.
Rene: Very strong player that probably would have won had she just not gotten too cocky. Rene ended up being the classic villain in the sense that she got hers in the end.
Craig: My personal favorite character. It takes a lot in a comic strip to make me truly laugh out loud, but Craig pulled it off a LOT, he was so stupid, delusion, and lame, but I was rooting for him anyway.
Hugo: went from bumbling idiot to sympathetic father figure to greedy schemer to sore loser. Who is Hugo really supposed to be? Probably all of them which makes him another of my favorite player, he's actually very in-depth.
Taylor: i don't get the love for her. Sweet character, yes. But that's about all she's good for (other than the romance with Hogan). Never rooted against her per say, I just didn't care for her.
Hogan: Such a dominator in the challenges, not a particularly savvy strategist, but he didn't need to be. He was easily the star of this season, always getting a ton of air-time. Like Hugo, his personality changed a lot rather suddenly. He went from jerkoff to likeable. Maybe he grew up? Inconsistent writting? Who knows? Who cares? Awesome character regardless.
Charlie: Didn't like her at all. Sometimes a reasonable player, sometimes an annoying idiot. I found myself rooting against her the whole game. Very disappointed that she made it so far. Just an underwhelming and cliched character.
Skylar: Easily the best player in the game, he didn't do a lot to start with, just said a few things to remind you that he's awfully smart for a 12 year old. As the merge game hit though, it became his time to shine and shine he would. Loved watching Skylar make his big moves, (even if some of them weren't at all realistic or even reasonable). Overall a joy to watch this character play the game!
Overall: I loved this season, definitely can't wait to start reading the next season!!!
@BLAHBLAHWHATEVER: Let me explain myself with regards to Taylor.
I love Taylor as a character. She was a spoilt valley girl that did nothing wrong, and yet everyone hated her for no particular reason. Yet, she got to the final 4 despite everyone hating her because the two people (Hogan and Skylar) dragged her there, only to get done in by Charlie's random hatred. See the pattern? Nothing that happened to her, good or bad, was her fault. I find that amusing, which is why I like Taylor.
Upon reading this, FROM THE FUTURE. I must say I LOVE Sky, he was an amazing player and it was awesome how, on several occations, he was able to play the odds that were against him in his favor
Up and beyond!
@Genshai_: And you, mine! For...my good sir, I've had to read this in a span of THREE days (not including my own 'distractions'). ;) You're indeed, a SIR!
Re-reading all of the seasons. I've always liked the first season, as I felt it was one of the funnier ones you've done. To a degree, it still holds up well, (thanks to Craig in large part). I will note that as others have mentioned, there are some rather unlikely situations (Sky's bluff that got Bea out, Sky somehow buying an idol clue without people getting suspicious, Sky getting Merideth out with his weak excuse... actually a lot of Sky's move are pretty questionable lol), but considering that this was your first go at this, I definitely tip my hat off to you! This was a pretty well written season and the cast had several memorable characters.
Season 1 Rankings
Now that I finished reading Seasons 1-5, I want to rank everyone from those seasons before before reading All Stars:
16. Oran (13th)- A really annoying character. He's pretty much the worst SFC castaway ever.
15. Eugene (16th)- Not much to say about him. I guess he wasn't too annoying.
14. Hogan (3rd)- I despise him. He started off as a jerk, and when he became better he still was stealing the show. I cheered when Sky picked Charlie over him.
13. Suzanna (15th)- Her elimination sparked Charlie's personality. Other than that, she was just a typical sweetheart.
12. Lyle (12th)- He was the butt monkey that lasted surprisingly long.
11. Merideth (8th)- Rene's puppet that had a few good lines.
10. Phil (11th)- I liked Phil a bit. He seemed to get more mature as the days went on, so good for him.
9. Charlie (2nd)- She was a middle of the road character.
8. Bea (14th)-I love Bea, with all her sarcasm. I'm glad that she is the nurse for SFC because she is just simply awesome. She has the best line in the history of ever: "Sky you have cancer you need to be removed from the game."
7. Rene (7th)- Great strategist who was simply out smarted. Besides, the scene were Craig learns that she is a lesbian is comedic gold.
6. Craig (6th)- The original village idiot, clueless player, hopeless twat, etc. He is legendary.
5. Wendy (9th)- She could have had it all! I love her and all of her wit and awesomeness.
4. Hugo (5th)- The best bitter and cranky character ever. Though he was played like a fool, I loved him.
3. Pat (10th)- She was the first in a line of great bitches in this series. I guess she was a trailblazer.
2. Sky (1st)- He ruled the game after overthrowing Rene. The only bad thing I can say about him is that he was obsessed with keeping Taylor in the game. If he was a lesser being, that would probably have killed him.
1. Taylor (4th)- I love Taylor. She has my favorite lines in the first season, and she even unknowingly manipulated Hogan and Sky into bringing her into the finals, where she was the victim of a tie breaker challenge.
my fav character won yeah
animal crossing oran
looking back i found oran a preety good character i just found him dumb and funny to read about
Skylar won!!! Oh yeah!!! I mean... I didn't like him too much, but I liked Charlie less ^^
So like I said in a recent comic, I'm going over every season and giving my thoughts on every castaway and if they should return..
First, thoughts on the season itself. I read a good portion of the season again to refresh my memory on these characters and I discovered something... THIS SEASON SUCKS. The sprites suck, the pacing sucks (Particularly at Tribal Councils) and it's Typos Galore. But everything has to start somewhere right? If it weren't for this season we wouldn't be where we are today.
Now for the characters, in order of elimination:
Eugene (Resident Evil) He's pretty much Ezekiel. Got booted only for an offensive comment. I really don't think he had much of a personality, But first boots aren't supposed to be real interesting characters anyway. Should he return?: Maybe. But only for the novelty of having the first ever SFC boot come back.
Suzanna (The Sims) Who? Haha, she's one of the most irrelevant characters ever. Right up there with Slash and Uri. All she did was ride Pat's coattails with Oran and then got voted off. She wasn't that bad from what little we saw of her, though. Should she return? No. Like I said, she's irrelevant. Would be a waste of an All Star spot.
Bea (Sonic the Hedgehog) She was cool... But I honestly don't remember much of her. Other than sucking poison out of Craig's but and and telling Sky he had cancer. That was funny. Should she return? No. There are other, B-E-T-T-E-R Sonic characters to bring back..
Oran (Animal Crossing) The original Scrappy. By far the most hated character of the season, though not all time. He has been surpassed by the likes of Bonnie and Enter. But yeah he sucks. He's an annoying little turd and far and away the WORST player ever in this comic. Even Craig is smarter than him. (Seriously Oran HOW DO YOU NOT KNOW JEFF PROBST'S NAME?!) Should he return? No. He's terrible. Maybe if it was hated characters vs loved characters. But that would be an awful twist. (But Enter preventing Russel from getting idols would be funny XD)
Lyle (Megaman) He was nice. I feel like he was actually kinda bullied by Hogan. He was kind of a wimp.. But I think that was a part of his charm. I like Lyle, I don't know how to explain, he's just... Endearing, to me. Should he return? Maybe. If it's a Pre Merge only redemption season. Anything else? Nah.
Phil (Pokemon) You mean Black Owen? Just kidding, Phil was pretty cool. His lust for food was always great for a laugh. My thoughts of him are pretty tainted by SFC 10 though.. We will get to that Phil later down the road. This Phil is good. Should he return (A second time?) No. I only say that because of SFC 10 ruining him. Like I said, we will get to THAT Phil later..
Pat (F-Zero) Pat was a badass.. in the later Pre merge. Early on she kinda sucked. I guess being allied with Oran will do that to you. Once she dumped him she got better. Kind of boring though. Maybe I have a shit memory but I can't remember much she did. She was still cool though. Should she return? Yes. Frankly she should have been in All Stars and not Charlie.
Wendy (Monkey Island) Eh. I can take her or leave her. She was better in All Stars. As a matter of fact, every SFC 1 character in All Stars, was better in All Stars (Except maybe Charlie) Here, she was alright. Is it just me or does her sprite make her look a little fat? Should she return (A second time?) Yes. She would fit nicely in Heroes vs Villains. And on a favorites tribe in Fans vs Favorites. OK she would just be a nice fit in another all returning players season.
Merideth (Final Fantasy) I only remembered her as Rene's equally arrogant lackey with stupid multi colored hair. After reading the season a second time.. Yeah that's pretty all she was. Oh and she was booted cause she knew about the fake idol Sky was planning to use. That's pretty much all I remember about her. She wasn't that interesting. Should she return? No. She would be a complete waste of a spot.
Rene (Star Fox) Annoying arrogant bitch. The first true ''villain'' I guess you could say. Also the first villain along with Merideth to have a downfall when Hogan, Taylor and Sky flipped on her. She felt kind of Game Botty to me. Boring and arrogant, not a good combo. Should she return? Maybe. Even though she kinda sucks, she might make an interesting villain when mixed up with some of the newer players. If you ever do Old School vs New School, Rene might be a good fit.
Craig (Halo) I just love this guy. Personal favorite of the season. He's the funniest castaway of the season by far. He got even Better in All Stars. His delusions are 10x funnier than those of later castaways *COUGH*Juciedup*COUGH*. I know he may not be the most popular castaway ever, but I think he's one of the best. He got even better in All Stars. Should he return (A second time?) Maybe. He might lose his charm if he comes back again, but it's been a while since we've seen him. I think he should only come back if it's with a certain later castaway.. Ya'
Hugo (Legend of Zelda) The victim of Sky's fake idol play. He was kind of generic, but not as bad as some other generic players that came later. He pretty bad when he thought he had the idol. And after he found out it was fake he kind of over reacted. I mean, jeez dude. It's just a game. Why you gotta threaten poor Sky? Should he return? Maybe. He could work in a season with no one but people who got screwed. But that's about his only chance.
Taylor (Earthbound) The only character to get a whole comic named after them. She was annoying with the constant ''like'' she was the first yo use it constantly, but she followed by many others (Betty.. Starr..) Shaggy must keep disguising as various characters to play. I don't like valley girls, and Taylor is no exception. Though I feel like she was kind of screwed over. Should she return? Maybe. While there many characters like her, she was the first. But she should only come back if it's with Hogan.
Hogan (Mario Sports) Gotta admit, Hogan is kind of a douchebag. He got better later on, but in the early game he's a bully to Lyle, and an idiot. (Seriously, he wanted to throw immunity JUST so he could go to Tribal Council.) Like others, he was way better in All Stars. Here I don't like him. He got a little better after he started his immunity run, but he still wasn't that great. I'll take All Stars Hogan any day of the week. Should he return (A second time?) Yes. Not for his time on SFC 1. He would work in Heroes vs Villains the best but could fit in other season.
Charlie (Silent Hill) Charlie sucks. Second worst Runner up ever behind Shelby. Charlie is an awful player, she's a bitch, she screwed Taylor over for no reason other than Spite. She's better than Oran,(Which isn't a very big bar to jump over) but she is my second least favorite of the season. Should she return (A second time?) No. She should have never returned in the first place. I don't want to ever see her again.
Skylar (Sly Cooper) The Sole Survivor. And he's a villain Stu. And a little bastard. I don't like him. He's far from the worst winner, but he isn't that great of a character. And that fake idol play was kind of dumb. EVERYONE should have known that a Necklace isn't an idol. Other than Craig they weren't that stupid. Anyway, Sky is a boring villain. I'm glad the other winners are better. Should he return? No. He's a winner and SWSU doesn't bring back winners.
Sorry if this doesn't make a lot of sense, I've never been good with words.
Season 2 thoughts will be up tomorrow or Saturday.
@Blastoise_FTW: I strongly disagree when it comes to sky. And there is one way he could come back. With a champions season featuring only winners. Something I've wanted to see for a long time.
