/co/ is a separate board entirely on most chans, lumping all cartoons into 1 thread is rather dumb, even with the reduced post rate
There’s a difference from being a wageslave in a capitalist society while being a leftist and actively making money larping as an anarchist anon.
That’s like comparing a normal trade unionist and a porky selling Che shirts from a sweat shop.

Based. DC really have a shit ton of good D-lister international capes but somehow they just keep coming back to their bread & butter of batwanking. And now that King’s run has properly tanked Batman sales and Bendis running amok. DC’s any creativity is as good as dead.
And this is coming from a guy who always pirate big 2 comics.
wtf is that? Looks like America Chavez shit.
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.
Most of what's good out of the Nu52 sold terribly because of the lack of advertising and WB being the unscubulous fucks that they are let most of the writers be pushed under harras and didio (who did the most corporate cocksucking) be in charge.
I'm still pissed that Morrison got fucked over just for Snyder to remake his run again.
I also love how /co/ usually love this kind of mild leftist comics. But just like their retarded cousins over on /v/, once /pol/ discovered it and starts to raid the board, they retroactively pretend to hate it from the start.
Oh how great Capitalism is for the arts… Creativity, don't you see! We wouldn't have all this great "entertainment" were it not for Capitalism!
I partially agree and partially disagree but am too lazy to write out the hows and whys. Good effortpost regardless.
Funnily enough, most entertainment in a capitalist society exist in spite of commodification and not because of it. But its consummers and producers are usually ironically the most reactionary idiots there are.
This also lead to the sad case of Steve Ditko who was an adamant Objectivist (kek) that later died pennyless because he got fucked over by the same people he worship as deserving to fuck him over.
Not as cringe as some early glowposting comparing enlisting to being a fucking comicbook superhero team in that same thread kek.
The US is really going mask-off with this one.>2011 secretly taking out Bin Laden>2019 straight up murdering an Iranian general in a diplomatic mission (somehow when the DPRK did it, it’s bad)
>>1455>A sane moral or ethical perspective would have him do practically anything else besides beat up lumpens for fun.
except he literally does that like all the time?
I'm thinking of story-timing Alex Ross's War on Crime on the Batman thread, I think it's one of the best stories that deals with the "Batman it's just some fascist who punches poor people but does nothing to help them" shallow criticism.
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.
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. Otherwise you'll end up like Adornofags and claim literally everything is fascist.
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.>>1500>Alex Ross
Isn’t this the same pathetic idiot that sperged out of DC when they asked him to draw Kyle? The guy like Darwyn Cooke and him are reaction manchildren who have an idealistic view of superheroes as a genre.
oh yeah, I read the New Frontier some days ago. Shit was legit unironic American exceptionalism propaganda, which I guess was kinda the entire point of the book but still, kek
>>1495>when the DPRK did it, it’s bad
When did they kill a general in a diplomatic mission? >>1500>>1501
While I agree that the "Batmon just punches people and don't help" is an oversimplification, your screencap is capitalist apologism, see pic related.
Also please do post the War on Crime in the Batman thread, I'm interested.
Kinda hilarious how it feels like something the feds would fund to ghost write, but it's actually from Bush era US (kinda running with the hard Korean war apologia of the early 2000s like the Grand Torino film).
Just a terrible book in general.
>>1495>somehow when the DPRK did it, it’s bad
are you talking about the other Kim brother who was a CIA asset or the Juche necromancy?
<posts an entire several hundred post thread
piss off it was a simple question
The US assassinated Iranian Brigadier General Qassem Soleimani which pretty much the leader of Iran’s efforts in beating ISIS. Now that they realized they fucked up, Trump and his administration are backpedaling hard.
>>1502>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?
Because comic writers have no understanding of the political economy and the causes of crime. To them it's Satan or Chaos leaking in from a parallel dimension and the only thing to do about it is beat it up literally with your physical hands.
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. Funnily enough, if he found a way to successfully fight, there would be no story to serialize in the first place. Damn, it's crazy, like the capitalist mode of production incentivizing continuous sales is a direct disincentive to telling any story other than maintenance of the status quo and drawing it out as long as possible.
Yeah I was aware of that, the question was about when did the DPRK do something similar like that
Could it be that not having to sell like crazy has something to do with this?
The thing is this is the opposite of the modern comic market. The Euro comic scene (specifically France and Italy) has been consistently the second largest market for comics being only behind the manga scene. While comic sales have been going down each year.
That's probably because all American comics are the exact same and it's a miserable race to the bottom. Besides Marvel/DC don't even have to make comics anymore, they're making so much money from movies/videogames/merch that it's not worth the effort.
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!
But once in a while there’s still some good gems like the recent Hillhouse books or Dial H for example.
Since this thread is dying. May I present to you the greatest golden age comic ever. Truly the height of American schizophrenia.
Stardust The Mothefucking Super Wizard!
>>1573>Why is non-burger comics so much superior
Because they have a long history of folk-tales and writing heroes, while burger-land does not. Russia is not very good with comic-book heroes either, and until recently hasn't even bothered trying since it does not fit their culture.
>>2476>Because they have a long history of folk-tales and writing heroes
I would say this is debatable. LatAm countries before and after the era of military dictatorship have a vibrant comic scene even when their culture only get the chance to shine in the post-colonial era. So much so that the US still uses it as a method to push their propaganda.
>>2477> LatAm countries before and after the era of military dictatorship have a vibrant comic scene
By America everyone is obviously referring to the US/Canadian comic scene - Marvel and DC and other such mainstream capeshit.
That other poster's point is: Having a long history of folk-tales and writing heroes is not necessary for having a vibrant scene of comics that aren't capeshit.
>>2479>Having a long history of folk-tales and writing heroes is not necessary for having a vibrant scene of comics that aren't capeshit.
LatAm does have a long history of folktales and heroes tho. and has heavy european inluence.
This tried to be edgy but it just came off as fashprim retardation.

Coronachan is based but why does she has to took this lad away.
I know virtually nothing about comics, but my dad torrented the Red Son adaptation for us to watch. How is it (both the comic and movie)?
The comic is better but it’s as liberal as it comes. With “muh gulags”, “muh Stalin”, “muh commies lobotomy” (even though the Soviet Union were the first ones to abolish that barbaric practice”, “anarchy mean no rulez”,… strung about endlessly. The movie is even worse being straight up anti communist propaganda. The motion comic on YouTube is still there and it’s a more faithful adaptation.
Simple question with a simple answer: The 1950s Comics Code Authority
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.
Thanks, comrade. I think that my dad may enjoy it more if he knows what it's really about instead of going in expecting some serious, realistic alternative interpretation.
Are there any other comics like Red Son but better that you'd recommend? Because I think at least the concept is cool.
>>1328>Seriously is there a worse anarchist in the UK than Alan Moore?
I'm tempted to say Grant Morrison but I liked The Invisibles and his run on Doom Patrol.
Alan Moore said is right when the guy criticized Morrison for larping himself into the punk movement but the guy never truly considered himself an anarchist. Moz said that he’s a green liberal that supports Labour. While Moore called himself an anarchist while trying to make money from that edgy persona.
On another question what’s your favorite capeshit run? For me it’s Doom Patrol, O’neil’s Question and Ellis’ The Authority.
I always intend to make a storytime thread here but always worried that it may pushed potentially good threads down the drain.
>>3982>Moz said that he’s a green liberal that supports Labour.
That's unsurprising; I've often been told to read The Filth if I wanted an illustration of what Grant Morrison really thinks.>On another question what’s your favorite capeshit run?
Garth Ennis' The Boys, Rick Veitch's The One, and Kevin O'Neill's Marshal Law. The Authority is good; I should reread it.
>>3356>died of COVID
From my own research on the topic, Doctors aren't even bothering with full autopsies and just label deaths as the virus because its easier than digging around in a corpse.
He probably just died of old age
Not like that, normally they'll ask someone close if he had the flu. Or check if he went through a test and the results. A congressmen in my country died that way. The care facilities are coffins nowadays.
The message was not liberal in nature but the ending was. It still held the idealistic notions of the truth in the press being important when in reality it has never been.>>3990>Rick Veitch's The One
To be fair that was also’s Pat Mills greatest book behind Nemesis and Vampire Knight.
unreliable as fuck TBH>they'll ask someone close if he had the flu.
The similarities between the two viruses are so close that its hard to tell apart, so with the hysteria, doctors are just going with the popular option, "COVID!!!" and that's what goes on the obituary.

Probably not, Disney has said it's a temporary measure until Diamond renews operations.
You are certainly not! It's insanely based. I grew up with the entire collection that my dad kept from his childhood. My favorite one was the Viking one, not least because the copy was practically falling apart even when I was a kid, so physically handling it was part of the adventure. Reading those panels of boats navigating through storms, appearing on old yellowed pages barely hanging on to the spine, made me feel like I was holding some forbidden artifact, or even a lost historical record depicting true events.
I'm sure I owe more to my personal development to Asterix and other lit for kids than I do anything they were teaching me at school at the time.
Not as brutal as when Miller depicts how hilariously contradictory “the American way” to truth and justice.>>5247
DC is completely fucked as of now with huge layoffs because the bean counters at AT&T are tired of paper floppies I publishing. Jim Lee is seemingly pushing for online distribution and closing everything else. Which in the end will eventually lead to DC becoming just an IP farm for Warner Bros and Batman&Pals.
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.

Yes, that's just what I called them because of alliteration. They only showed up for one scene so far, to arrest Bruce.
Glory to the new Socialist Prince of Gotham!
God help anyone who messes with the psychiatric queen
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.

Oh and that soft sounding black comic who voices King Shark
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.
TDKR is just a boomer fantasy about still being a badass despite being old. It might actually be the prototype for all those shitty hollywood movies about old fuckers coming out of retirement to do action heroics again.>>29250
It's about average overall. They aren't going to waste a lot of budget on characters standing around talking.

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.
It's the truest homage to a book about pirates
> Marvel's KISS comic mixed the blood of the band members into their red ink
I remember this! They're doing this now again in music but with nike shoes
Also damn, marvel and dc didn't even start the crossover shit? Whatever happened to Pep
I REMEMBER FREE GIFTS, This happened in India too, My mum used to get me spider-man comics from a newstand and every week had a gift, way more cooler than the other gimmicks even if it's just unloading inventory
I gotta find my spider-man diary
Do you have any gimmick stuff in your own collection?
>>29355>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.
Boomerang died in the start what a shame.>>29316

Seriously how did Nintendo get away with that kind of false advertising for their GBA "versions" of games>>29703
The artwork is beautiful
Is the pink and purple robot on the left a sentinel?
i love the colours on both of them
how do comic creators come with color schemes for their OC?
How do I start watching the DCAU shows
I loved BTAS and JL as a kid
I assume the way it was released goes like BTAS, STAS, New Batman, JL, JLU, Batman Beyond
I don't know what project zeta or static shock are
What do all those other million DC made for home movies take place? Their own continuity or connected
Zeta Project was a spinoff of Batman Beyond so I guess after that. Static Shock was really its own thing iirc there was just one crossover episode with Batman Beyond in the final season. Justice League started airing just as Batman Beyond was ending. I would do BTAS, STAS, New Batman, Beyond, JL, JLU and then do Static Shock and then Zeta Project (I don't like Zeta Project personally).
Yes, that seems like the correct order
Do you think BTAS batman is peak batsy design, JL is up there too
But something about dorito-man shape is just 👌
There were Spawn Clones? It was that popular?
What have been the trends in the industry outside of Marvel and DC's influences
Do you think there's any "merit" or valid arguments in this rightoid thread whininig about alan moore's characterizationhttps://twitter.com/christphrfisher/status/1577807426522316801
Also are superhero movies being popular really any indication of fascism?
Supe stories are often moralistic (sometiems gray) but I don't think that's enough to display a trend towards fascism
No doubt if we do see fascism in the 21st century, there'll 1000% be capeshit mythos invovled by some dipshit loser, but the popularity itself, being a sign of fascism, I don't really see
I just see it as people feeling powerless and wanting to see bad guys not get away with it on the big screen.
thoughts on the fan remaster of the show?
it looks brilliant https://imgsli.com/NTI5ODE/2/1https://mega.nz/folder/Qb4BWQJI#agv5Z3Tl9zb2KLH3SbK8Iw
i can't be arsed to download 6gigs per file tho, mega has a limit
This is the WMAA one? There's a 1080p downscale done by a torrent group you can find for smaller filesize.
I helped give early feedback, its been a work in progress for at least 3-5 years. Unfortunately fbi.gov drama bullshit has fucked over the project almost entirely (not just upscaling, also obtaining and archiving almost everything that CN and precursors ever made in best possible quality) so I don't know if any other show will get the same treatment. Similar, since the model is accessible
, but it was trained for EEnE so while it still works very well on other similar shows, this was a massive undertaking.give me a few pictures to upscale x4 when I'm on desktop. Due to my shitty GPU I have to use a script to upscale it in 256x256 tiles and rejoin them but it does still work nicely
this looks beautiful, but I can't afford to store 6GB per file for this>>29922
I think I may have downloaded the 1080p one recently. didn't know that was a recent fan remaster.
>>29922>I helped give early feedback, its been a work in progress for at least 3-5 years.
DAAAAAMN, that's some big league shit, how did you get in to give feedback and stuff?
Here's an image if you want to upscale, what's your method, I have a iGPU 5600g, would i be able to try the method
an A.I trained on EEnE trying to upscale other stuff sounds really funny, Imagine if it tried to do Johnny Bravo
How much is your 1080p remaster? I have the one and it's 194mb
I was also part of a forum where they upscaled KoTH and it looks pretty good
Do y'all prefer the original, painting like grainy look or the digital, smoothified?
I reckon the smoothfied look is better for eyes since it's less blurry
Yeah my files are the same sized files. I haven't watched the remaster yet but I think they both have their merits. I do think the kind of blurry style of the original, with the lines all wobbly, was neat since it was such a distinctly recognizable style of the show. hope the remaster preserved that.
iirc I think it's the tech they used to broadcast cel animation back in the day? I remember seeing a video talking about why the first season of Spongebob looks so different even from the cels that have been made available, and it was something to do with the way the cels were compiled for the final edit?>>29907>Also are superhero movies being popular really any indication of fascism?
I think he's probably right in an indirect way. Superman, for example, was a much more radical figure in the 30s before DC turned him and all other heroes into America cheerleaders (after kicking out the original creators and paying them pennies).
I can't relate to his position personally, I still like Superman and a few other heroes. I have long ago lost most interest in modern super-hero media, however. Even the "subversive" stuff all feels like a big show these companies are putting on. All sides of the market are satisfied because there's content for the cynics and the consoomers.
I would wager it's less a servant of fascism and more a servant of capital, with all the heroes doing the performative dance to make money for the corporations.>>30154
Natural only because the upscale is blurry.
no way the upscale looks more blurry to you, no way
oh sorry, my bad didn't see the file names
thank fuck, i was scared
how was moore expolited by the cb industry
i'm curious on what deal they get and where their wages are stolen
do the new artists get a bad deal, do they have contracts now where you get money if it gets adapted into movies
they really make so much of merchanidse and i bet the creators don't get a cent,
this is like finding out Titans is having a fourth season
who is still watching these shows? they got buzz for one season then fell off a cliff
I enjoyed the show just because they still stick with the Morrison run.
what kids look like this man, i just watched the pilot again and they look and sound like 30 year old dudes
nostaliga is a b
Artist is Adrian Raeside.
Thank you, how did you know? Do you read them?
>He began drawing cartoons on washroom walls as a kid. After being expelled from his first (and last) art class at the age of 15, he moved with his parents to England, then to Canada.
i swear i tried it, i use a different extension called "search by image"
link for yours please? mozilla firefox
No, his signature is in the second panel by the mall advert, I googled 'Raeside comics'.
No but I am suddenly very interested in them

thoughts? the og kang design is too goofy for real world
but if they're doing this at least x-men have a hope
I'll never not hate trailers using le wacky distorted/slowed down versions of classic 1970s boomer music.
is it really distorted?
You kidding me? You don't hear how different it is to the original when kang's putting that sphere in the thing and the rings are spinning round that city?

If you're not gonna work for the big two, you should go with original characters because in the slight chance your work starts to have a bit of fame and success, the owners of the already existing character might be trigger happy about lawsuits. Especially Marvel since it's owned by Disney.
If personal interests aren't the deciding factor, fancomics can be a big boost to your portfolio/online presence.
You know that's a good strategy, I can start with a fancomic to grow my audience and then see how many stick for original ideas.
which of you is this
>Of course! The dialectical materialism of Ren and Stimpy is a fascinating one, and it illustrates the contradictions between the bourgeoisie and the proletarian very well. Ren and Stimpy are two members of the capitalist class in constant conflict with each other, and they show how even members of the same class can have different interests, which is what dialectical materialism is all about. I agree that Ren and Stimpy could be seen as a critique of capitalism, as it shows the contradictions within the capitalist class. I think Ren and Stimpy is a brilliant and subtle critique of capitalism, and it's a classic example of dialectical materialism; Ren and Stimpy is a perfect example of how even members of the same class can have different interests, which is what dialectical materialism is all about. I think that Ren and Stimpy is a fascinating show, and it has a lot of deep philosophical messages. I think that the show is very creative and unique; it has a lot of philosophical messages about the nature of capitalism and the struggle of the working class. I think that Ren and Stimpy is a great show, and I think that it is a very subtle but effective critique of capitalism. I think that the show is also a very creative and unique creation, and I really like that about it. I think that the relationship between Ren and Stimpy shows the dynamic between the bourgeosie and the proletariat very well
Very obviously written by an AI.

at least they can't make comics yet… right? right???

>>1338>Dude this pitch can create tons of merchandising! We're gonna be rich!https://archive.org/stream/TwilightOfTheSuperheroes/TwilightOfTheSuperheroes_djvu.txt
That is not just using money retard.>With an eye to the merchandising that Marvel managed to spin out of Secret Wars, I think it's safe to assume that if it were possible to credibly spin role playing games, toys, "Waiting for Twilight" posters and T-shirts and badges and all the rest of that stuff from the title, then that would be a good idea too. Ideally, it might even be possible, while appealing to the diehard superhero junkie, to produce a central story idea simple, powerful and resonant enough to bear translation to other media. I mean, I know that I'm probably still intoxicated by the Watchmen deal, but it never hurts to allow for these things as a possibility, does it?
He wouldn't have anything left to do then. One can argue that all his moral dogmas are just a screen concealing Batman have little identity besides endless hunt and "revenge" - and he is unable to admit it even to himself.
Pat Mills and Kevin O'Neill's best second only to Nemesis the Warlock.
It was one of the first comics that got me into the medium as a teenager in the late 2000s so my thoughts on it are pretty skewed. If you know anything about Hunter S Thompson's life (his fascination with Richard Nixon, etc) and the development of so-called 'Gonzo Journalism' in general (especially before it got vulgarized by the miserablists at VICE Magazine et al), it's a really fun and compelling read.
God is dead was peak cringe.>>31663
Not that bad but really fucking idealistic. The press can't change shit when money is on the line. Smiley being evil for no reason was dumb.
Pretty good. Seems like The Boys cribbed a lot of its homework from ML
what do you think about the warworld saga, superman becoming lib in charge to liberate a planet of a dictator who is called the mongul?
it is written by PKJ, any thoughts
>>30154>why does every KoTH release have spanish dubbing
They do? Damn I figured they'd be hard to find online since I've read that the LatAm Spanish dub wasn't broadcast very often compared to other shows. KotH is my current obsession so I'm extremely curious about the dub, where they Hispanicized all the names. I admit, I don't know much about these things because I avoid online communities.
It's become one of my favorite sitcoms of all time, but you can tell the very early seasons went in a slightly different direction than later seasons. I preferred the early episodes, so the last season was a bit disappointing to me. That makes me feel somewhat conflicted, because on the one hand I wish it had never ended and I crave more episodes, but on the other, I'm glad it didn't turn into another The Simpsons.
This is one of those shows that I wish I could show everyone I know but they don't know English so I'm in a bit of a dilemma. Unfortunately, a lot of its charm is lost in the dub and subs distract the viewer too much to pay full attention to the animation and voice acting (imo). I wish it had become more popular where I live.
>>30494>tfw you download a .rar of the entire comic only to never read it
I got it several years ago, forgot where from. oops
TPBs were made to screw alan moore out of watchmen rights?
if they go 1 year without publishing it, he gets the rights???
i mistook subs for dubs, i used the wrong word 💀
what do you think about the drug addict episode s2e20?
Check archive.org, that's usually a good place to find those sorts of comics.
that dragon looks sick asf
>>30154>also why does every KoTH release have spanish dubbing
Fun fact : There's also a Quebec french dub and in this version, the cartoon is set in Quebec instead of Texas, even if there's a clock shape like Texas in the kitchen and Bush runs for president.
Anyone read that scott snyder alt-future thing from a couple of years ago where the US literally walls itself off from the rest of the world and soft balkanizes? I got 15 issues in. The premise was good but the execution and art didn't fit for me. It now seems like an extremely prescient storyline considering the way the US is uniting the world against itself rn.
Warworld was really good, it shows why superfags like Superman but I feel more could had been done with the setting.
I'm angry that the ending was printed on some event I didn't care for and that from one issue to the other Action Comics was done with the arc, that's frustrating.>>32203>Valiant comics
never read any of their stuff and I have no idea how are they still in business.
