BrainFart started out in the Art Forum, in a topic called “Iiiiit’s brainfartin’ time!”, in which ThunderPX proposed to create a webcomic based on happenings at the JCF. In initial interest, CrimiClown quickly created two comics and a short Flash animation. Although ThunderPX was initially upset at Crimiclown’s “hijacking” of the idea, he quickly relented. The comic morphed into a system where Crimiclown made the “official” comics, and everyone else could contribute guest comics, which were sometimes connected to the canon by Crimiclown in subsequent comics.
Apart from the guest comics mentioned above, ThunderPX would periodically write character descriptions based on what was seen in the comic, although these would often contain erroneous statements spawned through miscommunication. For example, Fawriel had a faulty description for a while; “Nobody likes him”. This was, however, also turned into a running gag in the comics, where forum member n0 (also known as Nobody) was used as a substitute for everything that said ‘nobody’.
Around the end of 2006, most of the fun things had been used already. Inspiration was low, which caused only a few more comics to be made every month, as opposed to the few comics per week, like it happened before. A few attempts were made to resurrect the topic, but it failed every time.
According to CrimiClown, BrainFart is not dead. Rather, it is in coma, and it’s later years of life has yet to come.
The comic occasionally uses story arcs, usually themselves a product of randomness. However, after negative response to a storyline where the three “main” characters (CrimiClown, LittleFreak and Fawriel) went on seperate vacations, the comic abruptly changed back to random jokes.
BrainFart has several running gags, such as the aforementioned “Nobody likes Fawriel”, and a gag where Pako constantly dies.
Another minor gag is that LittleFreak, a forum user who is represented by a piece of paper with a smiley on it, has a girlfriend made of wood. In fact, she resembles a stick.
