John Solomon is a badass motherfucker who has created epic lulz across the Interweb by speaking truth about webcomics. Solomon is joined in his quest by Ted David, Mike Saul, and Lilith Ester; collectively known as the Elders of Zion.
Solomon is often accused of being Maddox. This is because pissed off fanboys think Maddox is the only person on the Internet who writes caustic, observational commentary of overrated shit on the Internet. Other experts agree that John is in fact, Josh Lesnick, creator of webcomics Wendy & Girly. The main difference in his critics is that the people who claim he's Josh Lesnick also want to kill him.

—John Solomon, laying down the law.
The crazy motherfuckers who treat their beloved comics as sacred cows have responded predictably to Solomon's arrival; that is, they have become drama llamas.
—JDR,admitting Solomon was right and that she sucks.
—Ladycygnet, signaling the waah-mbulance.
College Roomies From Hell!
Fletcher posted a link to Solomon's CRFH review in their forum, spawning lulz.
—Maritza Campos, apologizing for her shitty webcomic.
After Lilith Ester ripped Shredded Moose a new one, the traffic her review generated caused the site to exceed its bandwidth allotment and crash. When the site went back online, legion of Anonymous descended on Brew's forum, forcing him to delete everything posted that day. But even then the hordes continued, proving Brew to be the beer-addled dickless wonder Ester had pegged him as! 
To make it even sweeter, this all happened on 9-11. NEVAR FORGET!
—EB Aum, Ebaumsworld vents their frustration at Brew.
David Willis proved that, at the least, he does not suck, by responding to Solomon without crying like a pussy.
Like David Willis, they proved not full of shit by thanking Solomon for everything he said.
And they continue to do so, even if the detractor is not in fact Solomon.
In a recent powerful display of butthurtery, the creator of Hookie Dookie Panic! (or HDP), has created a blog based on the sole purpose of reviewing Solomon's reviews. Cleverly titled "Your Webcomic Review Site is Bad", he attracts Solomon's long-time fans to his blog and gets pwned a number of times on every post, and since he's got no fans of his own, there's no one to defend his IMPORTANT OPINIONS ON SOMEONE'S OPINIONS.
In his blog, he can be seen claiming to be friends with Steven Hawking, insisting anyone using definitions of specific words is crafty and unfair, analyzing everyone's insults (therefore taking away the lulz), and writing up as many inane accusations per paragraph he can pump out of his anus (however shitty they may be).
After being thoroughly toasted by Ted David, the site crashed from all the traffic it received. Y HALO THAR!
The creator of Stormheart, Brian Rich, was tipped off that Solomon was coming. In response, he preemptively took his archives offline, making them inaccessible for review. Brian thinks this means he has won. In fact, it means his crappy web comic is no longer polluting the Internet. And if Brain ever puts his comic back, Solomon will be right there to rip it to shreds. Either way, Brian, YOU FAIL IT! 
—Brian Rich, Solomon - 1, Brian - a big fat fucking 0.
And soon after, Brian decided to permanently remove his comic from the Internet. And so another piece of fail is driven from the sight of Anonymous. Huzzah!
—Brian Rich, admitting his failure
The Broken Mirror
SA forum drama leads to an Epic review of Elanor Cooper's Epic webcomic, which in turn leads to epic butthurt, and furpile from her fans. Cooper's fans are not only attacking Solomon in the typical fashion, but are going so far to copypastaing their incendiary assaults on to Cooper's message boards for approval, begging for verbose headpats from their sacred Leader.
—John Solomon, epic.
One known fan of this shitty comic: Caroljoy, who made an LJ icon from it and bawwwed when it was "stolen."
El's dialogue: "STAY HERE FOR A MINUTE WHILST I GO AND GET SOME ICE CREAMS." seems to have struck a chord with the YWiBaYSFB readers. A research grant into the potential of pretentious ice creams may be approved. "I PLAYED HIM FINE", although misquoted, is also popular. Addendum: Cooper has recently pitched the possibility of making t-shirts bearing these slogans to her ever-adoring forum go-ers. The idea has received a minimal but positive reception.
Unfortunately, in what Lilith Ester admits was a FAIL GET,
her attempt to crush Chugworth fizzled (DISREGARD THAT DAVE WAS HERE, BUT HE IS GONE NOW) the comic is still an AIDS filled addition to the Internet.
—Dave Cheung trying to avoid embarrassment
Dave Cheung has since gone on to abandon his relatively normal-but-shitty webcomics entirely, and is instead dedicating his life to drawing comics featuring naked women getting killed and custom requests for the same material.
Solomon has produced many lulz-worthy quotes.
—John Solomon, on achievements of John Solomon.
Your Webcomic is on Hiatus and You Should Go Home
Until further notice, YWiBaYSFB is on hiatus.
—John Solomon, Robert A. Howard is meaningless
End of Hiatus!
As of February 11th, 2008, the Hiatus is over! Some argue the amount of lulz on the interwebs has gone up since. February 11th is also the day after the Scientology protests. Coincidence? I think not!
Disregard that, blog's been dead since April 2008.
Hey, John Solomon! I saw what you did with Webcomics.
I just wanted to say keep up the good work.
