With A Yurist Closet's recent strips, it seems that they seemed to actually deliver half of the content of what the comic's description is in. I'll copy and paste the description of the comic here:A comic parody about lesbians, videogames, lesbians, fads, lesbians, anime… and lesbians. If you like dark comedy, the Yuri genre, and want to lose your dignity, this is your webcomic. Don’t forget to bring your over-sensitive friend and to do Virtue Signalling about cancer and poverty in Tumblr.
Let's analyze this description according with the comic, shall we?It's a comic parody about lesbians, videogames, lesbians, fads, lesbians, anime, and lesbians.
As much a Yuri fan I am, I don't believe that this is 100% true. Because while it's a parody, it seems that I parody more of Puella Magi Madoka Magica characters than any other parodied characters that appear in the comic, sure that doesn't necessarily mean that I'm not going to post more non-PMMM content in the future, but most of my readers come from this fandom, they say they like my strips excepting highly biased ones (like #19 for example, which I consider the worst strip I've made for the comic of a multitude of reasons in retrospective on a personal level), they like my style, and therefore I believe I should change this part to something more centered in this fandom.If you like dark comedy, the Yuri genre, and want to lose your dignity, this is your webcomic.
The comic has dark comedy, contains Yuri, yes. With the phrase "lose your dignity" I have the feeling that new readers may think they'll gonna be mistreated, even that's not the intention. My intention with the phrase is to be satirical, but again in retrospective, I think that if I want new readers, I think I'll have to put more general adjectives about the comic such as "funny".Don't forget to bring your over-sensitive friend and to do Virtue Signalling about cancer and poverty in Tumblr.
I'll definitely change/remove this one. While at early comic strips I drew characters making several references to the Internet culture centered on SJWs, I consider this heavily biased and my spider sense tell me that when a new reader looks for a comedy comic, they'll be looking for genuine fun, not some kind of reminder about often depressing stuff such as censorship and indoctrination; that's what political comic strips are for, not comedy comics even if they use dark comedy. I admit that I make exceptions but only in scenarios where a large number of people discuss about X thing or when it's widely popular, something that
achieves in all his scripts of my comics about Sayaka's shirt and Star Wars better than I do in my early comic strips.
On some questions you may or not may about to ask in the comments section:Does that mean that A Yurist Closet will change its direction?
No, of course not. I enjoy drawing dark comedy stuff and pure randomness with my faved characters and other characters in the media. Hell, I'll keep it offensive as usual. The only thing I'm only getting rid of is heavily biased perspective while making comics, because like I mentioned before when people wanna read a comedy comic, they want to have a good time, not to be reminded of this crazy world.Are you considering changing A Yurist Closet's cover?
Probably. I don't have any new ideas that could improve the representation of the comic in one pic. Suggestions are welcome.Did you think in better descriptions for the comic?
Actually I had a few ideas. Feedback and suggestions are always appreciated. Here I go:A comic taking place in an alternate universe of Puella Magi Madoka Magica where crazier and weirder stuff happens involving characters of other works related to the Yuri genre.A Puella Magi Madoka Magica parody that is funny, savage, and contains crossover characters in the Yuri multiverse.
But also, there's the option to keep the description the same, if you like the description of course.
Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section.
Thank you for your support of A Yurist Closet.
