Only got 80 odd down votes last time, let’s do better this time.

First.

Is your life really so pathetic that being disliked is better than being ignored? I feel sorry for you, hope you can find a reason for people to like you

What would really screw with him is if we tried to balance out the likes/dislikes so itโ€™s zero

Or, just… ignore. Not comment, not upvote or downvote. Maybe don’t turn the comment section into a focused tangent on one guy.

I mean, Tim doesn’t ‘poof’ em out, so let the baby have his fun.

Yeah, but at 0 votes, “all the attention” is indistinguishable from “no attention at all”.
He CAN decide to take it either way, but the doubt that will sour the taste of his assumptions

These other dudes are really getting their panties in a twist over your harmless little game. Hilarious. (upvote)

Man, you missed your chance to do the first post as user “The Troll”! What a wasted opportunity…

This is oddly appropriate for a post about The Troll.

perfect comment for a story about a troll

I can’t place the face though I know we should, if I bothered to look at back issues would probably help.
Is it the lackey from Megagame or The Troll?

Edit: NM did the research, Dec 2015 sealed it, definitely The Troll.

Holy crap… Dec 2015… I would not have thought it was that long ago..

Not saying it’s slow, just that I didn’t think this iteration of CAD had been going on that long.

For Reall…. I honestly thought the troll went back to about mid 2019. Holy crap.

Ok, not gonna lie. Lucas had me scared for a second until the bottom panels. Well-played! I know The Troll is gonna make a return somehow but I got this sneaking suspicion he’ll be temporarily an antihero and take down The Master solely to mess with Ethan’s glory and taunt him that he can know who he really is anytime he wants. The Joker to Ethan’s Batman.

…or he could just be uglier than Jigsaw and dumb as a brick with his plans. Either or.

At first I actually thought it was just Lucas doing another prank on Ethan but as it went on it got more obvious. I realize “The Troll” is basically supposed to be “The Joker” in everything but name but now that he’s showing up again I’m hoping he’s not actually THAT much of a copy.

Or. He was ‘rescued’ from the hospital by a crazed fan who attacks Ethan and Lucas for perceived crimes done to others. White Knighting it, if you will.

Maybe the Troll has dream-hacking powers.

Or even more fitting the nickname – he can write an innocent-looking comment that sends your mind in a crazy direction without you realising the cause. A silly example – first letters of each sentence spell “Lucas wants out”.
And Ethan being Ethan will get on to this, but, I imagine, will have lots of trouble convincing Scott or Lucas that it’s more than his crazy imagination.

Sorry that was to predictable for me. You read the comic thoroughly you know Lucas would never treat Ethan that way. Funny as hell though. The last panel was humorous. Excited to see s where this headed. I’m really enjoying.

Why do I get the horrible feeling the first panel of the next day is going to start off exactly the same. Cue ethan freak out until lucas clarified he doesn’t mean the store, is not the troll, and still ethans friend, he just meant the super hero biz.. Ethan relief until freak outs again over that

And this gives us a terrifying cross section of Ethan’s fears. Fears he is unloved and all he has will be stripped away. And the Troll will find a way to cause that.

Honestly, I thought it was a dream from the moment I saw the green shirt. Which is odd, because these guys don’t follow comic-book logic of only having one outfit anymore.

I know normally, you’re not supposed to be able to see it coming when dreaming, but…

Only Ethan is gullible enough to fall for that, even for a split second xD

Even his nightmares have his “too goofy to be believable” trademark ๐Ÿ˜€

Trolls get into your head, and ruin your psyche. It’s what they do.

I thought it was gonna be Zeke wearing a mask, not a dream. Maybe that will happen next strip?

He should know better, no one could put up with him so long without being a very good friend.

Why is Ethan even worried about the Troll? Worst case scenario, the asshole kills him, and I’m pretty sure Ethan kills himself at least twice a day due to his own stupidity already.

The thing about trolls and specifically “The Troll” here is that they don’t generally attack your mortality. They instead attack your mental wellbeing, your will to live and your ability to enjoy life. Imagine that for someone like Ethan who is in essence immortal. Is there any worse curse to be had than immortality without the ability to enjoy anything? Video games, friends, family, free time…The Troll has the ability to take the joy out of any of those from him, and we’ve already seen that the Troll just doesn’t care about who he hurts and why. Because of this,… Read more »
