What is 'Let there be panic'?
itBack in July, I started the 'Company of Heroes fan art... sort of' thread in the Studio, with cartoonified versions of some of the in game unit icons. The response was great and after some tweaks, they were added by Ionfish as the CoH Cartoon avatar section. With these cartoon CoH characters also came the idea of a CoH comic - as far as I'm aware, there's none save for Ratbones' Dogs of War and the game's great use of voice acting makes the unit characters ideal for a comic, in my opinion. After great responses and a link from GR.org's forums (to a thread in Riess' obscure Studio, mind you ! ) to the test comics, I've decided to make this thread for any further ones. Akranades told me I could, I swear!
This is not likely to be a weekly comic - my new education is hella busy and I can't promise anything, but I'll do my best.
It is now named 'Let there be panic' after the infamous blue cubes from Beta, saying "Missing RGM! Let there be panic. Consult warnings.log for answers."
What critics outside the forum said about 'Let there be panic'
You totally stole Dr. Badman's format!
itThis comic is not at all about World War II, Nazism or whatever happened back then. It's about Company of Heroes, and if the Germans look cute or likable, that's no attempt at justification of the Nazi policy and conquests, bla bla. I think this speaks for itself. Those wussy Pioneers in their purple suits just looked too silly not to be made fun of.

It's only three panels, but that'll give you extra time to see the cleverness I put into it! Harr.
