Head Trip - State of Denial by shinga Head Trip - State of Denial by shinga
I'm going to get murdered for this, somehow. SOME ONE will be offended by SOME PART of this comic. But here's the real question... WHICH PART. :O omg.

And yes, Terry Goodkind does actually say that. That's why I made this comic. Because it's funny.

OH SNAP.

*blink* Woooow, the scary person who commented, kokoro13??? Kinda nuts. But higurashiXyoumi wasn't all that accurate either.

If you want a more neutral opinion, the first book was written alright; a little boring in places, the Confessor power thing was kind of easy to poke holes in, the main guy was kind of an idiot, and then there was a whole WTF pain and BDSM part in it that was weird and unnecessary in my opinion.....
It was pretty long, but I can get through 900+ pages in three or four days, so that's not an issue for me.
Despite those issues it was an okay read (and a library book, so it's not like I had to buy it to find out it was a solid 'meh').

Then I read the next one, and the next one, etc. I gave up around book four (or five, can't really remember), when the two main characters STILL kept having horrible gut wrenching things happen to them to keep them from fulfilling their EPIC LOVE. -__- It got old fast.

Aaannnd then I had a good long laugh when I heard a while back that Terry Goodkind had said this. Because, PLEASE, they are SO fantasy.*G*

Terry Goodkind is a fucked up loser who sells awful books to other fucked up losers. He's OBSESSED with rape. Every other page, there it is, in some awful new incarnation.
He IS a fantasy writer, but not just because he writes (badly) about wizards and shit: he is writing his own fantasies, disguising his violent, misogynistic fantasies as a plot. I hate writers like him, who say its social commentary, but you can tell they're getting off on it. Sorry. I've hated him since high school.

Sorry, I don't make it common practice to start flame wars or anything, but I would like to say that kokoro13's opinion (not fact, mind you) is rather misguided and I'm willing to bet she saw Stone of Tears' 900 hundred pages and now makes up excuses as to why she won't read the series. Please don't let her clouded judgement prevent you from reading what is actually a very well written set of novels. And no, there is not a rape every other page. Many of the villains do commit crimes of a sexual nature, but this is one of many things that set them apart from the heroes of the story and what they are trying to defend. It makes victory all the more sweet when they are defeated.
As far the whole fantasy thing goes, it's a bit deeper than "wizards and shit". So I think to call Terry a fantasy writer is to pigeonhole him. I'm sure he wants people to view his work as something a bit more than all that.
Sorry for ranting on your piece, I thought it was pretty funny actually.

Everyone, even people who don't like rap, like Eminem. I ask you... WHY...? I've always hated rap and Eminem is no exception. He is not a good person either, just puts down others in his songs. Britney Spears is totally self-explanatory...

I had to stop reading Terry Goodkind's books after the 6th book or so, because I was getting a little tired of the plot and all of the rape and sex... I might have to finish it soon though, because I hate not knowing how a book ends, no matter how bad it is -.-

Terry Goodkind's books are just honest about the nature of war, is all. Brutes like that WOULD rape a woman like Kahlan as soon as they got their hands on her. Not to say she and Richard weren't a bit oversexed, but, hey, that's life.

I completely understand that, and I appreciated it for how realistic it was. You really don't find stuff that realistic anymore. I just didn't have the attention span for it anymore, despite how much I enjoyed the plot initially. I'll probably pick it up again eventually, I'm sure I just needed a break.

That was a new thing for me, though, having to put down a book because I was bored of the plot. I'm an obsessive reader, too, and once I start reading something I'm incapable of putting it down.

OH LAWDY. I, personally, hate Terry Goodkind for being so hypocritical in his books. And for all the damn filler books. And for being so full of himself. (Oh god, even his author pic looks like he can't believe he would condescend himself to write books for the common people, really.) To be honest, if he had left it at the first book, I would've thought he was a great author. Then he drug it out. Way. Too. Long. [/rant] Great comic. I'm late jumping on the bandwagon and finding this comic. But still awesome. ;D

I find the Terry Goodkind one to be strangely funny. That applies to Tolkien too! All the Tolkien fans will almost vehemently deny that he was a fantasy author - it's a fair bet that some radicals will even deny that he was a FICTION author - but that's exactly what he was.

I read the SoT series, because all my friends were all "OMFGawesomeblahblahblah" but it took me a month to get through the first fifty pages. And I read a book a day. I mean, a 350+ book a day, not Sweet Valley High. I mean, by the end, I was like, "Hey, not bad..." but seriously, the man likes the words. And they aren't well flowing ones.

This comic is hilarious and truth.


And I read through the entire Sword of Truth book series (apparently I enjoy pain) and it seems to me that the only possible way for books to be that preachy and condescending (four full pages of Richard "I'm perfect dammit" Rahl saying "lol, everyone who disagrees with me is a moron and a terrible human being") would be for the author to be the kind of egotistical twi who would say something like that.

tl;dr, funny comic, don't like SoT.

Have you read the last book yet? There's a solid four pages of Richard talking about how the people who follow the Order are terrible, stupid, and hateful creatures who deserve much worse than what he is going to do to them.

Also, the bit where he murders innocent pacifistic civilians in Naked Empire is a bit much.

Also I hate him.

While I really like your comic, it's funny as hell, I have to say, although Mr. Goodkind can be arrogant and a bit of an arse at times, he thinks that his novels are more then simply fantasy. He thinks that they are mystery, romance, etc etc. He doesn't like to deem them as simply fantasy, because he uses 'magic' as a metaphor for how things work in real life, and other such examples of why it's not fantasy. At least, that's what he thinks. He gets annoyed because he feels his stories are so much more then the common label, and wants the public to know that.

I just call them philosophical fantasy intrigue. Makes it easier.

But yea, great comic!
