The Incredible Adventures of MS PAINTMAN! was a short lived web-comic that was set to appear weekly on WebComic.com. Thankfully however, the comic was canceled after its memorable debut, in which over 9000 readers called to complain about the 'blatant lack of graphical talent' possessed by the author, Matthew Swasbey. Swasbey's response was, "If I wanted to spend my summer learning to draw lines in The GIMP, my comic would look pretty. If you readers want to go ahead and buy me Photoshop, be my guest." The first and only episode to ever reach the web is readable below, however purple eye-stabbingly ugly it may be. The ending of the comic proves that Swasbey had no intention of trying a second episode, which came as a relief to a number of people.
