Seeing how there’s multiple /co/ related threads on the board. I think we should just put all of them into one general just for clarity’s sake.

Discuss anything related to comics and animations from comic recs, leftist animations to comic writers’ attempts to larp as leftists.

Seriously is there a worse anarchist in the UK than Alan Moore?

Utilitarianism is just the retarded phil101 version of consequentialism. If outcome is what you care about, the first thing you need to do is think outside the box in terms of how you can influence it. Utilitarians settle for "good enough" i.e. outcomes where an action is justified, when if you were actually a consequentialist you should be concerned with the best outcome you can reasonably achieve.

Instead of accepting the limits imposed by a moral dilemma like the trolley problem, a consequentialist imperative is to find a way to produce better results. Just pull the emergency brake. "But you can't do that," the Kantians whine. The only reason you can't is because the dilemma is constructed to prevent alternate solutions. In any context where moral dilemmas matter (i.e. real life) there are plenty of outside factors that can be leveraged to change the course of events. This has to be stripped away for philosophical expediency (both to make the thought experiments efficient and to disguise the philosophical paucity), and utilitarians accept the framing uncritically.

Should Batman kill the Joker? Of course, but it's really quite a minor question next to what he should do about rampant poverty, crime, and capitalism. Batman should kill Joker with his bare hands, not even wasting a bullet. He should put his almost limitless resources into funding measures to end crime at its roots, which is to say by fighting capitalism. Batman wields immense power both by virtue of his wealth and his personal attributes. He is therefore culpable for how he puts these to use. A sane moral or ethical perspective would have him do practically anything else besides beat up lumpens for fun.

Yeah the writers lazily handwave this criticism by making Wayne some super philanthropist but how can Gotham still be so bad if he's really putting his full effort into making it better? He's like the number one employer in the city and he's a billionaire. If he really wanted to help Gotham he should run for mayor himself.

Also: this argument for why Wayne is so great for giving up a small portion of his wealth is just the same as arguing that Bill Gates is some saint among men for giving away billions when he literally gets richer every year.

The surplus value Wayne steals from the poor of Gotham must be infinitely larger than the money he gives away otherwise he wouldn't be a billionaire anymore.

 No.1504

I think it's like that anon from the fantasy thread said, you have to separate ideology from the media you consume and believe there's a world in which a good billionaire can help people without some sort of ulterior motive.

I truly hate the handwave shit comic writers retroactively do to make their “heroic” characters past incarnation not a fascist or a parody of one. Reminds me of how GW slowly from 3rd edition onwards turn the Imperium parody of fascism into something inherently necessary in setting through retcons.
The only time I see this get truly addressed with a character is with O’Neil’s Question where after getting btfo’ed so hard, Victor straight up has to realize that Objectivism is garbage and cut it out.

If batman wants to take personal responsibility for the shithole that is Gotham, as both a billionaire and a vigilante, then he needs to take responsibility for the results or lackthereof.

You’re right. Both publishers have been gutted by their masters and turned into IP farms.
DC got hit especially hard with this last year. Where most of their higher ups were replaced by corporate woke suits who just let Harras and Didio do what ever they want as long as they keep pushing the Bat, Joker and Harley. Which backfired spectacularly with Heroes in Crisis.
Marvel is now under the reign of a weeb who just can’t stop pumping out shitty sequels to their popular events. There’s been like what 3 Civil Wars and 3 Spiderverse already!

Simple question with a simple answer: The 1950s Comics Code Authority

Like >>1578 said, comics sales per capita in every other continent (Europe, Asia, South America, Africa) are far higher, with the much-vaunted comics utopia of Japan actually just being somewhat above average compared to anywhere but burgerstan. Even American non-capeshit, like Disney's Mickey Mouse comics, are actually more prosperous outside the USA than within it where they are completely unknown.

Pre-Code, American comics were a massive industry, spanning every imaginable genre, format, and demographic audience, this was the [b]"Golden Age"[/b].

Then Frederick Wertham, aided by the Red Scare, published "Corruption of the Innocent" as part of a moral panic crusade aimed at destroying the comic industry. Of course, this ended up succeeding in part because of willing support from inside parts of the comics industry itself, such as DC's capeshit and the newspapers' syndicated funny strips.

Having killed off everything other than capeshit & newspaper strips, this launched the [b]"Silver Age"[/b] of bland, unambitious, safe, marketable, comics. This worked for maybe a generation, from the 1950s into the 1960s, until the burgerstani comic industry's audience of small children and disinterested newspaper readers outgrew any serious interest in the skeletal remnants of the medium that had been allowed to survive under the CCA.

Hence, during the 1970s, readership imploded, and the rotten industry collapsed. In a fit of desperation, the CCA was dismantled. Hamfisted attempts to shove "important" messages were made to sell capeshit as socially relevant, comics turned inward, trying to establish themselves as a niche medium for geeks with soap opera-esque crossover continuity gimmicks, or appealing as a collectible "investment" vehicle off nostalgia bait like baseball cards were doing at the time. But none of it worked, it was far too late to save anything of worth, decades of the capeshit monoculture had completely sterilized the medium of any mass appeal or creative authenticity. This was the total death of American comics as a popular medium, the [b]"Bronze Age"[/b] of comics.

By the late '80s, comics had for 99% of Americans shrunken to a cultural artifact, a curiosity of 1950s retro nostalgia, supported entirely by merchandising and licensing, with the actual comics having circulation numbers too small to actually matter as an industry. Sure, a small number of non-capeshit imprints like Vertigo and Black Horse exist, but they are trying to rebuild a cultural legacy that was completely exterminated.

A good comparison to what happened with comics, is what very nearly happened to vidya in 2007-2014, a campaign by self-promotional grifters to buy clout by leading a moral panic to destroy an entire medium.

Luckily Morrison decided to jump ship early and go back to Heavy Metal (no more Sea Guy or that promised Arkham Asylum sequel with Batman 666 which is a shame). I couldn’t care less because the amount of good DC runs in the past could last me a lifetime.

Sounds interesting as an idea, I read somewhere he fights with the Avengers because of US hegemony or something and argues for RUS/CHIN during some fight

Yeah. He was also a bit of a Jesus figure (because American pop culture fucking always falls into that trap, "Hijacked by Jesus" I think tvtropes calls it) and had a following of what you'd might call hippies. Then after a little bit of reluctance and blackmailing (on his part, hilariously) he fell in with the Awongas and somehow got along just fine with industrialist narcissist weapon dealer Tony Stark.
Then they fought and Captain Not-France burned his hair off with a flamethrower. Then they were pals again.

It can be hit or miss but it's usually very good if there is enough background to sample from. Can't remember which version of photoshop brought it in but I have CC2019, iirc CS5 had it too.

Just magic wand the bubble or whatever you want to erase, expand the selection by a couple of pixels to include the edges. You can hit shift+f5 (at least with how my shortcuts are set up, that may not be default) to go to fill and select content aware in the contents dropdown and it'll do it automatically and do a decent job of it.

Or you can go edit->content-aware fill and there you will be able to define the sampling area, where it picks what to infill with, so for example in this you could define the sampling area to exclude all of iron man's armour because you don't want any of that ending up where the bubble was.

It is literally art crap. It's 1,900 Euros and there are only 50 of them made, the 'artist' describes them as

>With a spine width of more than 80cm (31.5 inches), this sculptural object cannot be read or displayed in bookstores. ONEPIECE can only be contemplated as a materialisation of digital comics’ very own media-saturated digital ecosystem. ONEPIECE exists only as an object of pure speculation.


That and the fact that he doesn't seem to have actually done anything beyond think 'lol, wouldn't this be fun'. The binding is done by someone else, obviously the book is Oda's. But he's taken Oda's name off and put his own, it's the same sort of hack shit that Roy Lichtenstein did.

>>29316
The first variant cover made to sell more shit (as opposed to just different covers to identify newsstand copies, different covers for regional pricing, different logos, etc.) was the 1986 Man of Steel mini.

There have been some truly ridiculous comic gimmicks out there.
- Marvel's KISS comic mixed the blood of the band members into their red ink
- Rub-off fake blood on bloodstrike
- All the metallic, holo-foil shit in the late 80s early 90s.

Before all those I think it would be crossovers to get you to buy extra titles that you wouldn't otherwise because your favourite character is in them. I think this first happened in 1940, in Pep Comics #4 The Shield (the first American-costume themed superhero, beating Captain America by months) bats up some crooks and they continue into Top Notch Comics #5 where the shield and the wizard meet.

Another gimmick which was big in British comics, but I'm not sure the same can be said of US comics, would be the free gift. New comics magazines for the first few issues would come with extra gifts to get you hooked, for example 2000AD Prog 1 came with a 'space spinner' like a shitty plastic frisbee, a few issues later you got 'biotronic stickers' that you put on your arms to look like a cyborg.

>Whatever happened to Pep
The publisher turned into Archie comics and it became just a humour comics series in the late 40s and kept running with ever slipping sales until 1987 when they cancelled it. Like a lot of titles it was just a victim of kids having more things to do.

I don't really have any of my comics from back when I was a kid in the 90s, UK magazines tended to be printed on bad paper and basically disposable, even more so than US ones. The only gifts I specifically remember were a Dennis the Menace pencil-case, another one that was also a calculator and this bendy stretchy rubber smiley-face man.
