Then the economy turned sour. He became so lazy, he hired someone else to ink his even-worse-than-before artwork. His fans stopped lavishing him with money. He became bitter. He began to make self-pitying rants about how he was turning 30 (poor baby).
Eventually even his enablist fans began to gradually notice the dreck he wrote wasn't worth wiping their asses with. They began to critique him. He threw a dramatic hissyfit and hired other people to illustrate his awful rape fantasies. Many of them quit. Yet, he fapped on.
Then, we came along.
NONE OF THIS ARTWORK IS OURS. WE DID NOT EVEN MAKE THE EDITS. WE HAVE ONLY SAVED THEM. ALL ARTWORK IS FROM GOOD OL DAVID HOPKINS. http://www.pholph.com
Oh look, an FAQ.
Oh look, a list of riffs.
Question with 1 note
Anonymous asked: I've been reading Cliff (since Hopkins can't be bothered to update his own damn comic) and I notice a comment for page 43 asking how Cliff got his gouged eyeball back. Dave's reply? "*shrugs* If you think of a good excuse, be sure to let me know" Fucking really, Hopkins?
He’s so creatively bankrupt he can’t even bullshit on the fly anymore.
Anonymous asked: I guess this riff is as good a time as any to complain that Dave's panel borders make me seasick. Almost like he was preoccupied by something else when he drew them!
Rulers are for school yard nerds! Jacking off is where it’s at!
Anonymous asked: oh my god, you guys. drawing 12157789 in his gallery showcases SO WELL how much he hasn't improved. There are several years between the Chicks books, right?? Like goddamn. Also it's amazing how undynamic his characters are, he has no idea how to pose or create feeling through body language
Anonymous asked: I think a little much is being made of Hopkins posting his print-only comics. They're all at least a few years old; I imagine the vast majority of people who wanted to buy them did so when they were new and exciting, and got at least a few years of exclusive content. MY problem is that Hopkins is clearly just posting it because he's desperate for relevancy, and may well think posting the 'good stuff' will breathe life to a stagnant fanbase. It's really just kind of pathetic.
His “best work” is yet another meandering pile of garbage in which women are objectified, men are poor innocent victims, Drip is central to all events and there is really no resolution what so ever. Oh, and someone else did all the hard work with the art.
Anonymous asked: If FNAR is Dave's imaginary son, who he writes as "innocent", dumb, and "sweet". Then is Lita how he thinks his daughter would be? Both are Drips kids so I guess the are what Dave thinks his kids will be like.
Lita is likely less Hopkins envisioning himself a daughter and more Hopkins creating a gender-swap version of Drip for rape roleplay. She’s certainly been around long enough.
artist-guy asked: About Dracula and rape. A friend and I were talking about this recently. He mentioned before "Interview with a Vampire", Vampires in mainstream media were more ugly/disgusting. Because of this they had to rely more on their psychic control and/or force to drink the blood of their victims rather than their now charming good looks and volunteers. The act was forced and not a choice, therefore a sense of rape. That's where their monstrous nature came from. Nothing to do with sex as rape, just power
Even Bela Lugosi felt that vampires exerted a sexual power over their victims, even though it was never openly displayed on the screen.
Imagine all those subtle erotic scenes where a vampire is fighting the urge to bite a victim, and then dramatically succumbs.
Now imagine Hopkins attempting to portray such a scene.
ask-jigsaw asked: You have to wonder how the (slightly more sane) people who bought comics like Cliff and Screaming Barrel felt when they saw Dave throwing up something they probably bought only because Dave didn't have them online for free. If I were them I'd feel a little ripped off. Again.
It isn’t even as if Hopkins uploads just a few pages in an attempt to generate publicity and sales. The books have no exclusive content (unless you count the self-aggrandizing introductions) so ultimately the question for potential buyers becomes: Why give this man your money?
