Girly Ends

And another comic comes to an end.  Third one in the last year.

Girly ended a couple weeks ago.  Not much fanfair for it, and honestly it took me by surprise.  I really didn't expect it to end, though the signs were most definitely there.

I've liked Girly since I first read it, but at the same time, I wasn't completely obsessed with it. Oh, I kept reading it, but I was never really that into it.  Seeing it end doesn't really bother me.  That's not to say it's bad, it isn't, it's just not great.

As an adventure comic, Girly was everything you could want or need.  From the lovable stars to the wild collection of wacky characters, and all of them had some batshit insane adventure they would participate in.

The adventures are fun, and the focus along with the relationship between Winter and Orta.  Which brings me to Slipshine.  Oh, what's Slipshine and why is there no link?  It's a pay porn site created by the creator of Girly.  Yeah, if you've been reading Girly, that should explain the ads and why it looks the way it does.

Never bothered me, honestly, but as the comic wound down, these roots came out much more, especially in the climactic final battle.  Again, didn't bother me (Portal of Evil has steeled me from such things), but I could see where some people might be turned, off.  Luckily, they probably don't read Girly anyway.

I wish I had more to say on it, but I really don't.  I enjoyed it and will miss it to a point, but it's not going to take a chunk out of my daily webcomic run like 8-Bit Theater did.

Next week, a set of new reviews.  No, I'm not kidding.  Until then kiddies.
