The real story behind those scars.
Edit: Wow, totally didn’t mean to step on VGcats toes here. No copying was intended :(
Bad Gamercat… good kitties don’t pick their fingers in their nose. ^_^’
Knowing most, this would happen to us…
hahaha priceless =D
:3 Real (cute) life!
wut!? that [beep] painfull!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don’t you just hate it when that happens?
Aw, poor Gamercat isn’t a very good liar…
mmmm…Where have I seen this before http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=249
Wow, I honestly did not know about that comic :(
Don’t worry. It it makes you feel any better I like this version better ;3
That does make me feel better :) Thank you!
I like this one better too! =]
Are you fucking kidding me…? I think there’s a pretty good chance you do know about VGcats. Try to come up with your own material, scott certainly does.
Of course I know about VGcats. I didn’t know about that particular AC comic that he did. I haven’t read all of his comics.
I already amended the description above to give due credit to VGcats for doing it first. What more do you want? I’m not trying to copy anybody here, it’s just hard to come up with original ideas when they’ve pretty much been done before. Similar jokes are going to happen.
Wellll… I suppose I can understand that. Sorry for being rude. If I may impart some advice, lurk moar. If you know most of whats already been done, you’ll be less likely to unintentionally repost a joke.
Don’t worry about it. There’s a ton of gaming comics out there, so accidentally using the same joke as someone else is completely understandable. I think you handled this well.
Why am I reminded of that SouthPark Episode…”The Simpsons did it”…
Jesus, you’re an asshole. How dare she have the same thought while playing the same game! You know, a thought that tons of other people had! To even suggest that Celesse should read all the gaming comics out there to make sure she doesn’t get the same idea as other people is beyond stupid.
As for VGcats, it hasn’t been funny in years. I haven’t read it in years. I wouldn’t know what the current comics are, but I’m sure that they’d be very similar to all the bazillion other gaming comics out there. It’s not groundbreaking material.
So get off your high horse and purchase some common sense and logic. And some social etiquette while you’re at it.
VGcats hasn’t even updated in years. Well, okay, it has, but it’s like… the first bi-annual webcomic.
If you feel the need to attack or belittle someone over something as trivial as this was, at LEAST get your spelling correct! (grumble..grumble…grumble)
Jesus, what is WRONG with you? Seriously! What kind of crippling mental handicap makes someone act the way you do? And this nonsense about reading every single webcomic ever so you know every joke ever told? Further evidence of your issues, I guess.
Uh… You’re right to be upset about this, but seriously, even though this is more than half a year later, you should REALLY know better than to make insults based on someone having mental handicaps. That’s WAY different than calling someone stupid, because people can’t help those; they’re born with them.
It’s not much different than insulting someone by calling them gay.
Honestly I think this joke is totally different o_o same concept, different punchline. This one is way more funny then the VGcats one.
So just because you can’t come up with anything original that means you feel the need to pretend that you hadn’t known about the thing you’re copying but insist on using plagiarism? You’re comic sucks and I’m done reading it God I’d rather read Awkward Zombie or virtual shackles and I might as well be making jokes while playing skyrim even the Brentalfloss comic is better than this
LOL Right, that’s totally what I’m doing. Okay, you’re boring me now. You can go away if you hate my comic so much.
Are you still talking?
Just saying, this concept is actually very different from VG cats’. In theirs, the blade stabs through him and I’m pretty sure he’s dead. xD This one seems like it’s explaining that very similar scar in AC. Which is really clever; I looove this comic, Celeese. Your style is so memorable. <3
I honestly believe I have never met anyone so stupid in my entire life. So the comic is similar, are you honestly so mentally incompetent that you cannot see that it is not that big a deal, please go do the world a favor and die horribly in a fire
For what’s it worth, that’s probably something we all thought one way or another when seeing that blade :P
btw, did you change the strip recently? I could’ve sworn it had darker backgrounds some days ago.
Gamercat is awesome!!!!! Keep it up =]
perhaps they should put a safety feature on those?
>_> I like Gamercat better then VG Cats.
I love both vgcats and gamercat. I look to vgcats for his negative reviews, while I look to gamercat for her cute positive thoughts on games. Though I admit I lean more to gamercat because vgcats could get a bit perverted, but he’s a guy, so it’s expected.
Similar ideas always and will happen. To me I like when that happens, it means I get to see it in more than one way. xb
So thats how ezio and altaîr got their scar on the lip….
Mr. Moregan! If you post your opinin, she might syop making GC Cpomics! And I hope VG caTS GETS deleted!
If you had bothered to read any of the comments above (even the description of the comic itself), you would have seen that this issue has been addressed already.
I honestly couldn’t care less I HATE RIP-OFFS
Then your unjustified hate has been duly noted.
Don’t you have anything better to do with you’re life then write replies to negative comments on some poorly-written web-comic
Given that this is my webcomic, no. Don’t you have anything better to do than try to troll a “poorly-written” web comic?
Rip off implies it was a shitty imitation of the original. In this case, the original VGCats was shitty and so’s your face.
I like your comic much better than the other. I’ve had similar ideas to comics before, but I’ve always managed to represent an old joke in a unique and funny way, like you’ve done. Even if you knew the joke existed, an idea is not copyright. You have every right to make this.
And i love it! It’s awesome, funnier, and less gory. Much better than the other. It’s original.
Seems like nose jokes are…
a popular pick.
DUN DUN TSH!
P.S. fuck VG cats, I like comics that I can check more then once every 6 months.
Your webcomic is absolutely adorable. :)
Also, to the people raging about how VG Cats did this first, if you’re going to be so harsh, why don’t you make your own webcomic, yeah? With your obviously superior artist ability and wit.
I do enjoy VG Cats, but their updates have gotten so slow, I don’t even bother to check their website. And personally, while Scott has a nice style, I would still prefer The Gamercat to VG Cats even if they updated more often.
Soooo keep up the great work. :)
Don’t be an idiot. No one here said anything about her art style. They were just pointing out that someone else already did something very similar.
He’s not. He’s simply pointing out that he likes Gamercat more than VG cat. He wasn’t trying to make a statement. Lol idiot
This… is so… cute and funny!
Gamer Cat: no really they were huge!!
Will you have Gamer cat art at your con table? Cause hes just too cute!
and wow a lot of hateraid going on with viewers… like dude enjoy the adorable kitty.
A lesson is in this… A warning in both… XD Maybe THAT’S why they’re so similar to each other!
Don’t listen to the nasty trolls! Your comics are amazing and cute, keep up the great work!!
Gamercat es demasiado genial! *O*
VG cats may have done it first, but you did it better! <3
So far your comics have been very comical. I love it!
Celesse don’t take it personally what others say. Ignore them and they will lose interest. Honestly, you know you are good if you have at least some haters. ;)
I was gonna say I’ve seen this on VG Cats…. Both very good comics and both I love very much <3 Keep it up!!
What a lot of unemployed people with soooooo much free time. Pathetic. You’d think that VGCats got the patent! It’s like saying no more fighting videogames must be made… lots of brands had released similar ones much before!! Sacrilege!
I love your art, Celesse :) It’s simple and clean, funny and shrewd!
I needed to say it. (even a year after) You may publish a whole book with all the comments XD
Well, no wonder he got hurt like that. He put the blade on the wrong hand, then completely forgot about it! Not that he needs it anyway, what with his razor-sharp feline claws. Nothing wrong with a little blade redundancy, though.
this hidden blade has a very sensitive mechanism.
DO NOT AIM AT YOUR OWN FACE.
BWAHAHA! Right? xD
This made me laugh for a good 5 minutes: especially his expression in the last panel! xD
Who cares about VGcats this is so much cuter and better looking in general
Are soo Cute-
i HATE vgcats gamercat is the best around
Nothing is original nowadays :) It is all in the execution, and for all intents and purposes, having read both yours and VGCats’version, I can safely say I consider yours better, both in artistic execution and punchline. So keep it up :)
This reminded me so much of sword fights in Monkey Island…
- I got this scar on my face during a mighty struggle!
- I hope now you’ve learned to stop picking your nose.
Happens to me all the time….
I think I enjoyed reading the comments more than the comic on this one. Although it isn’t a bad one. Plus I don’t fault the artist/writer for such an incident. If one were to pay attention to other things that have small pools of inspirational material you will likely find similarity between them. Take visual kei for one example they are groups within their own right and have a distinctive sound if you listen long enough but to an outsider they all seem the same or nearly the same. Which given the fact that some do come from an old band that disbanded then formed a new band from fragments of other ones similarities are bound to occur. Now to apply that knowledge to this: two comics with a similar theme. One they both are cat related and two they have a common game. Its not surpising that out of the millions of people two webcomics with similar basings would create a similar comic and who knows this VGcats person could”ve gotten it from someone else perhaps an artist who was doing as a fan art with the characters of the game. Now chew on that Ima go on reading
