Comic:  “Better to not say anything”

About this comic


You just don’t mess with this guy.

UPDATE: For those who wanted moving ink blots like in the film, I had no idea that is what we’d see. Drew the comic before I saw the movie.

    Had a feeling you were gonna do a Watchmen comic, btw the movie is awsome i dont’ care what people say , the opening credits are to die for too.

    I see clouds.

    I loved the movie(gratuitous sex scenes aside), the scene with the ink blots was an amazing way to tell back story. I haven’t read the comic yet(hopefully it comes today), but I doubt it will do anything to change my feelings on the issue. So once again well done, another reason why this is one of the few web comics I still read.

  5. Jason says:

    His blots constantly move. It would have been good to show that in the three panels.

      I’ve never been severely irjuned by a cat – although my cat did drag her claws through my shoulder the day before I was due to go sunbathing for a week – but I have a horrible reaction to flea bites. It’s odd that you should make a dramatic video about a cat attack, because I was going to do one about a flea infestation.Now I’m not sure whether to do it or not. On the one hand, now I know they can be done and can be awesome; on the other hand, mine won’t be as awesome as yours.Either way, I enjoyed it immensely! Hope to see moe videos from you!On a side-note, was the music you used Immediate Music/Globus? It sounded a lot like them, but it was a track I’d never heard

  6. John says:

    Scott is to lazy he just copies the first panel and modifies it a little… and voila he’s done.

  7. Eric says:

    At least, Scott is the one doing the comic strip (among working, marriage and raising kids)… and what have you done today (other than be too lazy to use just one more “o”)? So, nyah! 😛

  8. Shaun says:

    Really? The point of the web comic wasn’t to show his moving blots….it was just ot be funny! That is the lamest thing to complain about.

  9. Eric H. says:

    Cool fire, Scott!

  10. Sam Sam the Fireman says:

    The POINT is ok, but if you neglect everything but the point everything falls apart. This is the internet, full of fanboys, who will complain about the lack of movement. i noticed it, i didnt like it, but i didnt mention it.

    It’s better to not say anything.

  13. Eric says:

    There was supposed to be a 😛 at the end of that and it was referring to the fanboys nitpicking. Anyway, you should put up that last twitpic for a photoshop contest.

    You don’t understand. I’m not in here commenting with you. You’re in here commenting with ME.

    Dr. Manhattan version:
    “Oh is it the symbol for nitrogen? No, wait, maybe it’s the symbol for carbon.”
    *Dr. Manhattan looks at him with grimace*
    “I got it! It’s the symbol for sulphur!”

  16. Darrell says:

    I’ll eventually see this movie.
    Finally saw Hancock, so there is hope.

  17. Rufus Jenkins says:

    Great looking Rorshach

  18. Eric says:

    Dr. M was sent away by his psychiatrist because the pdoc kept seeing disturbing images in the Rorshach.

  19. Liraco says:

    Oh noes, Scott isn’t following Watchmen comic canon… the horror! 😛

    Funny stuff. Poor guy, he could have gotten a grappling hook to the gut but now he has no facial hair…

    • Aman says:

      OMG! I simultaneously puelld a muscle and almost wet my pants. Of course, I’m almost 7 months pregnant with baby #3 so this happens a lot, but at least this time it was for a good reason.I am showing this to my daughter who at 5 still hasn’t completely figured out why the cats don’t like her.

  20. tyler says:

    Cant wait to see this movie

  21. Altaru says:

    this one was freakin hillarious scott.

  22. Burky126 says:

    My only complaint about the comic would have been the size of Rorshach’s hand in the first two panels 🙂
    Seriously the’re tiny as hell.He’s meant to break fingers with THOSE hands?!

    Excellent work Scott.

  23. Xengon says:

    My only complaint is that people are complaining.

    Awesome comic Scott!

  24. Rob says:

    @Xengon I agree completely.

  25. Joe says:

    Great comic!

    Dont worry Scott, i read the comic 3 times and i only noticed his mask moves toward the end of the 3d read.

  26. idogis1 says:

    you know, the only word I’ve heard anyone describe the sex scene with is “gratuitous”. There are so many better words for it.

  27. idogis1 says:

    well, maybe there are no better words but there are certainly many of them.

  28. Benjamin says:

    @Xengon too true.

    I loved the film, but not as much as I loved the direction – gonna have to get round to watching 300 🙂

    Having never read Watchmen I was however irritated that we only discover why there’s a frickin’ glowing blue man half way through. Still enjoyed it though, not too sure on the replay value – I think the pace was a little slow, anyone agree? Or does it match the novel?

  29. Marek says:


    In the novel you get the Dr. Manhattan backstory in chapter 4 of 12 so it’s not explained immediately either.

    I thought the pace of the movie was really good so I guess it matches the novel. In the movie you are spared the intermissions with a boy reading the “Tales of the Black Freighter” comic at the newsstand which would make the pace even slower.

    The comic is being made into a separate DVD:

  30. BoredomBoy says:

    Great comic.
    I thought the ink blot only changes as his face shows emotion underneath. Like his facial muscles contracting and relaxing would put pressure on the inside of the mask causing it to change. I don’t know. Either way, people need to quit complaining over minute issues. Scott, better yet, just give them their money back.

  31. Scott’s a lazy bum!

    • Marina says:

      [Man sobs into his sleeve. Feels for his creidt card and then remembers that he cut it up. No, he remembers that the bank cut it up. And they cut up his sleeve too…]Damn you Zebra.

  32. Scott says:

    oh yeah? well Pineapple Farmer is a pineapple farmer!

  33. Baxter says:

    I like the guy who commented above, who was offended by the “gratuitous sex scenes,” but was ok with all blood and bone breaking carnage in the rest of the movie. haha… I do think it has more fanboy appeal, than mass market appeal. I guess we’ll have to keep an eye on the box office to find out.

  34. fearitself says:

    Uhm, Rorschach wears leather gloves, by the way. A “herm” would have been nice on the second panel, though.
