Taking Sides

April 9, 2013

Surprise! I didn’t think I would have time to do a comic this week (because of how busy it is), but here you go! Probably my fastest comic ever.

(Actually it still took me a while and now I really need to go to bed).


EDIT: As someone pointed out to me, a similar Poorly Drawn Lines comic was posted a couple weeks ago. It’s just an unfortunate coincidence and I hadn’t seen it before until now (at least the joke is different!). Check out his comic too, it’s good!

    I love these comics! I saw the odd one here and there but like Cyanide&Happiness, I found that I wanted to go to the source and see them all – which is what I’ve done. Love, love, love all the dark little twists.

    That was not your best one, since the joke was a little flat (don´t know if that´s the right thing to say about a fat circle like Bob though. I call him Bob, because that´s just the name i´d give my own circle if i had one. It fit´s so much better than…let´s say…Jonathan! You have to admit that´s more of a squares name. You know: all arrogant and stuff, proud of his 90°-angles and all those pretty sides. So why would anyone want to call his circle Jonathan when he´s just not like that? That just would not feel allright. Better don´t even think about it. Stick with Bob. It´s absolutely the best idea you´ve ever had. You´re a genius, you know that? ). But your overall-work is totally awesome. Keep on your great work!

    Sorry to be that guy man, but what happened to the girl characters? This is being a little too bland and depressing. I know you can get out of this funk you’re in and remember, if you don’t have motivation? Just remember us 😀

  13. chibiko says:

    Gregory, are you ok? we miss you, hope you are alright ‘-‘

  14. allo says:

    The circle is fat: It has the least surface for the given volume.

    1. Trevon says:

      That’s really thiiknng of the highest order

  15. Sudevenks says:

    Damn it, reached the latest comic already? Hnnngghh….
    By the way, had to ask this: Is the logo of Loading Artist (the cap) intentionally drawn so that it kinda looks like a unfinished loading bar?
    loading artist…

    Love your comics man!

    1. Will says:

      yeah that’s a good question! never noticed that before.

      1. Juggernaut says:

        It’s his hat. You can see it in several other comics of him.

  17. Maria says:

    very funny 😀

  18. basani says:

    well u can suck it ?!!

  19. Quix says:

    i love this SOOOOOO much
    still giggling <3

  20. Scattertom says:

    It’s funny because many scientists agree that the circle has infinite corners, as opposed to none.

  21. Kobe, yes that is my real name says:

    That’s it? What?! I made it too the end?!?! But I have only bean reading for, like, three days!!!!!!!!! Started from the first and read all the comics up until this point. Love them as much as all your dedicated fans and I am proud to now call myself a real fan of loading artist! Can’t wait till next weak

  22. Great comic, I tihnk that both yours and the other guy’s is based on flatland.
    If not you should probably read that book it can be found here:

    1. Neospector says:

      I saw the movie at one point. Though it’s probably nothing compared to the book, “get back in your squaricle” was one of the stupid-funnier lines I’ve heard.

  23. Maskedguy says:

    The circle say nothing becausehe did not had a point

    1. Anon says:

      Very good.

  24. Bill Murphy says:

    this comic was really cute. 😉

  25. ninjacrazyguy12345 says:

    Great comic! I prefer the comics with you it though. It cool to see how you can put a creative spin on your daily life.

  26. Lindsey says:

    haha wan’t expecting that! good stuff 🙂

  27. Raleigh says:

    he’s in shape! Round is a shape.

  28. Omega Lairon says:

    And it’s so true of society too… I’m sure if those guys actually talked to the circle, got to know him a little better, they’d probably be good friends. Or, if you’re a bit less morally adjusted, you hang out with a fat guy/girl so people won’t notice whatever your physical flaws are if there’s an easier (bigger?) target for mockery.

    So… not quite “delayed for a year” then. I think it’s a good comic on its own merits (joke, art, standard praise), but it serves better as an example of “minimalist, but hilarious”. Don’t feel like you need to pull out some epic masterpiece every week (though that would be nice), a simple strip such as this is a nice change of pace while still providing the funnies.

  29. Marissa says:

    He’s not FAT, he’s just big boned!

    1. Airtamis says:

      Or as we say about my cat:

      “He’s not fat, he’s… fluffy…”

  30. greymata says:

    “okay guy’s, let’s rounds thing up again”

  31. icecube24 says:

    an unexpected ending lol

  32. Ave says:

    Man.. you’re really good. Greetings from Ecuador.

  33. AdamTam says:

    LOL this was so cute! anyway simplicity doesn’t mean lack of ingenuity! bravo 🙂

  34. Assassin says:

    Dat diameter…

  35. shortmelon says:

    AW <3

  36. JetSetKuro says:

    I thought this comic was going to go in a WHOLE different direction on that third panel.

    1. Zach says:

      Yeah, Circle does kinda have that rape face going, doesn’t he?
