A grading system for webcomics
Any serial form of entertainment may be rated on the issue number at which it first makes a slam against State-approved targets.
For The Escapist's "Critical Miss", that moment hit in 31 December 2010. I did some counting, which got me to #66; then I did some math which yielded #68. The authors gave up counting in the #40s. Let's call it #67 and call it a pretty good run.
For those who care to inhale the smug of #60-mumble, it's here. OH NOEZ, CAFFOLICKS.
Now, the comic had, by then, attracted the notice of other biens-pensants who dinged it for
No you di'n't!
I haven't even looked for the reaction to that one. Maybe it was just the Escapist's editors who reacted. But I'm willing to bet that SOMEBODY reacted. So the comic burnished its non-Conservative bona fides. It had to.
