Metapost: a quick word on review requests

El Santo here.

Thanks for everyone who’s been submitting their webcomics for review. Please keep doing so. Out of the last seven reviews I’ve done, 3 have been requests from the webcomic creator themselves. Two of my scheduled ones, too, are also creator requests. At least one of the requests I received today via e-mail seems interesting enough to put on my shortlist of “potentials.”

I’ve been getting two to three requests a day for several months now, and unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to all of them. At a pace of only doing one or two reviews a week, I hardly have enough time to cover them all.

Despite that, keep sending in your review requests. I’ve encountered and glimpsed many different kinds of interesting webcomics thanks to your submittals. I typically pick the ones that for some reason pique my interest (they make writing reviews much, much easier and more relevant). Please don’t take it the wrong way if your webcomic is not one of the ones picked to be reviewed on this site.

Also, when sending a review request, please use my e-mail (which can be arrived by clicking on the handsome icon on the right sidebar).


About El Santo

Somehow ended up reading and reviewing almost 300 different webcomics. Life is funny, huh? Despite owning two masks, is not actually a luchador.

  1. Quick question: can people who DON’T have webcomics submit requests? Because, if so, I’ve got a couple of ideas (one of which is a webcomic done by my good friend Matt Garner).

    • Oh, yeah … sure! IN FACT *looks around, sneaky like* I do believe that someone who posts in the comments section was responsible for recommending the “Jack” review. I’ve also received requests on another webcomic creator’s behalf. It really come down to if I think it’ll make a good review or not when I click on the link to the webcomic.
