Ok, here's my breakdown:

Depending on the situation I don't mind any content at all. It really depends on the flavor of the comic. For example, Weesh would be ruined by the introduction of anything beyond a strict G rating. At the complete other end of the spectrum is Jack. If it were made into a movie, Jack would NR (not rated) or X. It would leave NC-17 in the dust, not just for (pleasant) sexual content, but also murder, molestation, torture, gore, rape, pedophilia and religious themes (among others). Both of these are on my 'check daily for updates' list.

The other 'don't mind' content is visual. My tastes run the gamut from DMFA to Castlevania RPG to Antihero for Hire. You'll notice that there's some fair variation in the art there, including sprite comics. As long as the visuals back up the story but don't dominate I'm not going to complain. But once again, this can also be subjective to the story's 'flavor'. I don't think I'd read MegaTokyo if it were done in stick figures.

Ultimately there are only two things that drive me from a comic. First, overly long/unfinished story arcs. I dropped Sluggy Freelance for exactly this reason. Oh, and killing Zoe. I gave it a month after that to prove she wasn't Killed Off For Real and then dropped it.

Second, jumping outside the flavor of the comic. If you've got a light, kid friendly comic, don't go and start making it violent/provocative/political/etc. I read it because it's good the way it is. And that goes for violent/provocative/political/etc. comics too. Just don't go changing things that work or you're going to just piss off your fanbase.

Lol

Anyway the character I like most is Miles, he seems the most realistic. Though the current chapter is fine though I do agree that Two kids is a pretty good story line.

Holy fucking fuck.

Best comic ever written, I just read 800 pages I think. That is what the bar is telling me. Jesus Christ on a fucking pogo stick.

...And people have problems with Jay Naylor.

Well it is certainly way more "Holy shit where did his bottom half go?!" and "Is that thing... is it eating... fuuuuccccckkkkk"

Yes swearing is needed, this comic cannot be described without the word "Fucked" in it. I have been on /b/ for about 5 years and I have not seen anything more profound, sick, gory, bloody, moral, immoral, philosophical and beautiful. Oh, and fucked. That comic is fucked to the tenth degree. It is Saw, in comic form and GOOD, GREAT, AMAZING EVEN.

Sorry to swear more than I usually do, this comic called for it.

Well, as for the, for some, radical content mentioned above I don't like when author is being overly judgemental about this stuff or overuses voilence, sex or predatory behaviours as a metaphor or in philosophical matter. I like voilence for voilence, Cormac McCarthy style, to portray, not to explain. Sme goes for sex and other stuff. Most will be offended by that, but I like when author doesn't try to justify the motives that drove him to draw what he did. Justifying your art and the beliefs you've enclosed within it is pointless, and that is what Naylor, for example, tried to do.

It's like Jack would go about explaining why he draws big chicks with big boobs. If asked, straight anwser - it sells and he likes drawing them.
End of story.

I've never had a problem with Naylor really I have read both his comics (Better days, Original Life) and I enjoyed them both. The only moment I really think he went over the top is when Fisk takes out a whole building of people by himself. Though it was the one and only time it happened so it didn't effect the comic that much.

I meant moreso when people flip out over chapter 10. I enjoyed reading Jack, but shit, it's far more fucked up than that ONE incidence in chapter 10 of Better Days.

Jack is interesting I must admit but it is pretty over the top. of course this means I agree the it is way worse than chapter 10 of better days. That chapter fit perfectly with the story in my opinion, if it was just thrown in at random then I might have thought it sucked.

Yeah, there was a point behind it and it never happened again, and both Lucy and Fisk found partners and got married.
