It's great to see some new poop comics! I like the style (although I do wish there was color). Looking forward to seeing where Toiletman is headed.

First person to suggest a Toiletman/Teed Off Turd crossover gets the "Mr. Obvious" award.

This reminds me of that scene in 'Trainspotting' when Ewan McGregor goes diving into the toilet!

color is coming! it's enevitalbe that I gonna be hitting a lot of "standard" "obvious" jokes here, but gee whiz guys it's bathroom humour right! give the noo guy a break, he'll get better... I hope! a monthly installment is my "conservative" estimate. I'll probably update more frequently than that. stay tuned.

Assy is cool, but I am glad to see some new comic strip authors contributing. I don't think this has happened since Melly illustrated her super powers! Go ToiletMan!

_______
So I told Katrina that I love Cajun and so she said, "I'll have to give that a try."
That was a disaster in the making.
After all was said and done, I said, "I meant Cajun FOOD not Cajuns themselves!"
Unfortunately, by that point she'd already told Rita.

I found Jesus! He was behind the sofa the whole time!

Your illustrating technique is very clean and uniform, so I enjoyed it. One of the hardest things to do when drawing cartoons is to make the cartoons neat, uniform, and seem to flow from one panel to the next. I love to draw cartoons, and that's the difference between a cartoon looking great and one looking like it's from a stoner's college newspaper. Not that I mind college or stoners.

Good for you, Englishman!!

I'm drawing a comic about feces in a very clean style! I love the irony! glad everyone likes what they see so far. I'll try not to let you down.

I must say you have a much better drawing style than I have. I'm not even willing to make my art public for other eyes to see. I think that badly of it. Anyway, great work! I'm looking forward to further ones!

Forgive me, but the idea of someone "drink[ing] full and deep of [the] putrid waters [of the commode]" fails to float my boat.

I won't be coming back to THIS comic strip again....

Drinking toilet water is not appeaking to me either. Still, I like this comic, if nothing else for art's sake. I've always had some sort of an appreciation for art.

er...guys....drinking toilet water doesnt...appeal to anyone.....it's a comic! ya know, it's for laughs..it's supposed to be disgusting and outrageous.....

GottaGoGirl's picture
i 2000+ points

Yes, but "disgusting and outrageous", in and of themselves, do not constitute humorous.

It IS well-drawn! It IS outrageous AND disgusting, but it lacks.....

Wit. Irony. Satire. Withering social commentary. Funnyness.

It's interesting, but it's not, well, funny. At least, not to me. Sorry.

And the toilet lacks any sort of tank or Sloan assembly. Only I would go and notice stuff like that. I guess it's because I have a keen eye for non-tank and non-electric-eye toilets since I am so picky. I assume the young kid is carrying his plastic potty around rather than a toilet. It was all I could do to carry a toilet (with tank) across the room to replace the bathroom floor, which rotted and I fell through it.

I'll DEFINITELY give you that this piece is very well drawn. I really like your style. The content, though, is still a little questionable. For those of you who think I'm referring to the discipline, I'm not. I learned what little values I have now because my dad wouldn't hesitate to snatch me up and beat my ass when I deserved it. Again, WHEN I DESERVED IT.

So yeah, anyway, nice art there.

Im not really going for funny right now, and all of this disgustingness will be "justified" as this story developes. Yeah, the kid is carrying a plastic potty just like the one my son had when he was a toddler. As a cartoonist, I've used my creative license to omit some details. Even the slap will be explained... this is not about abuse....

Double Flush's picture

Regarding the slap... like I said, I got it when I deserved it. Sometimes, just like mentioned above, it would put some sense into me. I see no need to run this into the ground.

Now I can understand why there's a movable, sans-Sloan potty, and I'm not all that worried about details being left out. I draw some very lame comics myself (no, you can't see!) so I can slightly relate.

_______
Um, yeah. My sig. So, about that... I'm not doing one this week.

Well, I'll be curious to see where this is headed. I'll read it again for sure, just for that. I agree that it was less appealing in terms of storyline than it was visually, but origin stories can be that way, I guess. We're not to the real poop yet... Looking forward to a good follow up.

The first one isn't always the best one. Just look at the first PoopReport stories; they are good for a first time, but we have evolved since then. I'm sure this new comic will develop more as more time passes and Elgin gets some more ideas and such. Maybe this is the beginning of a great storyline!

thanks for that comment double flush! most origin stories DO start off slow and i can even remember a few sitcoms (which are now famous) that were completely lame-o-rama when they first started out.

not to say that mine wont be lame even if I get rolling! LOL

all jokes aside, I DO have a definite idea where all this is going, and like any story it will take time to unfold. Hopefully some of you will push past your disgust long enough to see that happen. If nothing else, the good quality art will keep you interested enough to tune in even if the storyline is lame.
or..
you could just use the printer friendly version of the story, and use it for toilet paper...heh, heh...

That's why I didn't lame the comic. It had good art and I give you the benefit of the doubt that the MUST be a reason that he is acting like a dog. A reason I don't know yet.

well, to be honest, I just used that as a reason for him getting sucked into the bowl. Granted, I could have had him sitting there and got sucked in too, but I felt to have him drinking outta the bowl would be more comical. Then again, you never know what reaction you're gonna get from readers. i guess it just goes with the territory when you're creating something. I originally created this strip as a personal diversion, it then started morphing into a story that has exited in random drawing pads, notebooks and in my head. Until discovering this site, there was no real forum to post it on, as it was too disgusting! The Poop Report seemed As an appropriate place as any. I found out about this place from my pal, fellow caricatue artist, Mike Paglia.

Agreed poopmatic. we seem to have a surprising number of prudes amongst us though.

I don't understand how people can be prudes like that. We are all human, have the same needs, and function more or less the same. What makes us so dirty and awful that it requires hiding? Then again, I shall never know, for I am with little inhibition.

I just figured Toiletman was something like a mutant dog, but that the secret would be revealed to him as he didn't know why he was drinking from the toilet. Now that would be funny!

I guess even "bad" press is good press! LOL! as my pal, Poopmatic can attest,(he's got the inside dope, since he's my pally) this comic has been thoroughly thought out by me and is not just a collection of bad writing and disturbing images. If nothing else, it has helped create a dialogue on the nature of what we find disgusting. This simple act of defecation. Shared by all, shunned by some! If you want to get really "existential " about this, perhaps Dookey's tendency to partake of the contents of the toilet is indicative of the crap that many of us are forced to eat from the authority figures in our lives.... use your imagination Im sure there's other "deeper meanings" found within the cartoon! Take for example the turd man's comment, Whuts that funny smell,? is that YOU!! Isnt it ironic how the most toxic people in our lives, Parents, Bosses, Polical , religious, law enforcement officials ALWAYS think that YOU are the offensive one who STINKS when it's OBVIOUSLY them?
Food for thought.
or at least, Feces for thought.
Keep reading. And dont forget to flush. (that would be my slogan folks so dont bite it!)

Elgin, there`s no need to justify Toiletman - it`s great, well thought out, brilliantly drawn and the writing is hilarious. "I knelt at the commode and drank fully of its putrid waters....", was fantastic. Keep it up!

keep kudos like that up, thunderbox, and I may just put you in the comic! that name has definite visual possiblities! would ya mind?

Elgin - as you may know the thunderbox was a portable commode used (generally) by British colonial officers when we ran our empire. Mainly used in Africa where there were no facilities at all. The thunder was no doubt attributed to the result of many mornings after of too much beer and spicy food. Feel free to use the name as you like.

Really, let's not run it into the ground. This really is a great cartoon--I liked it when I first saw it, sans-comments (other than The Dumpster's). I look forward to future installments as your ideas grow.
