[box border=”full”]N.B.: This post has been updated (primarily link-wise) multiple times due to the comic’s author’s disappearance from and reemergence onto the internet/webcomic scene. Things are still not 100% with them, but it seems safe to say that the comic will return next year (2017). I will keep the links updated should they change again.[/box]
Wrong Answer is only 24 pages so far, but I adore it! I think with the first few pages you kind of get the feeling that the comic is just set up to lampoon the BL genre, but when you have a Jekyll & Hyde model student pursuing the new kid who initially seems like he coined the phrase “I can’t be bothered with this $#!%”, but turns out to be quite the straight shooter with his own unexpected side to him, lampooning doesn’t quite cover it.
The artist, (formerly known as) Delmo, rewrites some of the cliche BL moments with wit, snark, and a good bit of intrigue. The leads, Andy and Linus, are joined by the pair Matt and Tom, the student body Pres and his Vice. They’ve also got other sides to them, but their veneer seems to peel back most whenever Andy mentions Linus.
I had fun reading this and I think I’m going to have even more watching the story progress. Actually, I was just so much into the casts antics while reading, that I didn’t once think about how the story will get from A to Z. “A” being Andy and Linus’ first encounter and “Z” being them ending up together.That’s rare.
Where did the comic go though? I’ve been following it since the beginning, and went to check for an update on Tapastic yesterday and…it was gone. Everywhere. Even Delmo’s Tumblr profile is gone. Do you know what happened?
I don’t have anything conclusive to report, but you can check out this link (http://constrixii.tumblr.com/post/137077304557/hey-you-said-delmos-family-deleted-all-their) and the rest of the blog for possible info. I can’t vouch for the validity of the post, but that’s all I can recover on the situation.
I was shocked, but if that post is true, then I can only hope that they are in or getting into a much better life situation. And if things go will for them, they’ll consider returning to the comic.
I hope this isn’t true, it’s really just unfortunate. The webcomic was truly promising and the art-style particularlly drew me. I wish the best for Delmos, and hope that they can only get to the point that they can be in better situations as well.
I know ! Me too! Its my favorite comic and I was wondering why i wasn’t getting any updates. So i went back to check on it and it was gone! T_T that’s how ended up here. I hope they didn’t quit on it and will fix the problem soon. All my favorite stories are just being canceled!
2 years have passed by and we don’t know he is. He was such a nice guy, 🙁
Ive got more updates on “DelmoCrab.” It doesn’t look like he wants to continue the story by the looks of it. Rip wrong answer
Awww. I was still holding out hope. It was a really good story. But thanx so much for he update.
No problem. I still hold it dearly in my heart. I really want to make something to explain what has become of the creator and just be a place for fans who are still searching. I will update if i do manage to make something of the sort.
I’m not sure what you had in mind, but you could make a free one-page site on carrd.co, maybe name it something like “wheresdelmo.carrd.co”. And as long as you mention “webcomic” and the name of the comic a few times, it should appear in search engine results the way my page does (though it can take a couple of weeks for the search engines to index the page).
