The 2 may have the same characters, but thats about as far as it goes. Its like trying to compare steak to chocolate cake. Most older/mature people would prefer to eat a nice thick juicy steak, where younger kids would opt for chocolate cake and ice cream.
The same holds true with these comics and the actual shows in my opinion. The comics are way more mature and serious than the cartoons will ever be. This gives a lot of lee-way to Bleedman cause he can do things in his comics that simply aren't plausable on TV. That being said, I would think most older/mature fans will prefer the comics. Whereas the younger fans (dare I say children) will probably continue to enjoy the cartoons more.
Its a personal preference, and I really like them both. Though I must admit I prefer the comics. They are simply amazing
First you draw an S. For snake....errr....dragon. Then, we'll draw a more different S. For the head, we'll draw a top mark on a long V. Then we'll put in a couple legs, maybe a couple of arms, and....whoa...I think I need to start over. It doesn't look quite....natural. (the S is for sucks)
Okay, starting again. S, more different S. Close the top off real good for his head, and then using consumate V's, we'll draw teeth, spinities, and angry eyebrows. Then we can add smoke, and maybe some fire. We can give him some wings, ya know, if he's a wingaling dragon. Lets put one of them beefy arms back on for good measure... That looks really good, coming out of the back of his neck there. Now he needs a name. How about.....TROGDOR the BURNiNATOR? OH YEAH! Check out all his majesty.
