Island has been pretty hit and miss on the whole but the misses are still worth a read for their creativity or weirdness. That's pretty much the point of an anthology comic so I can accept a furry artist. The one thing that fucking MUST go is the prose stuff. The prose and interview portions of Heavy Metal are from guys like William S Burroughs or Fellini or HR Giger or John Waters. In Island they're from Brandon Graham's douchebag hipster friends.
>>79124139 in total agreement with you. Island is hit and miss - the mummy skater one could have been a lot better and the Multiple Warheads seemed like filler - but those atrocious prose pieces must disappear. then again,Island will most likely be canceled soon unless they get bigger names to contribute.
it's about damn time we see Prophet: Earth War. it's been delayed, what, a year? nothing Graham and co. have done in the meanwhile can compare to the awesomeness of what they've done with Prophet series.
>>79124405 while i dig the 8house work from what i've read - the first few issues - it really is kinda confusing for new readers. don't know why they didn't use the traditional "finish up your story before starting a new one" method. just when the reader begins to invest some connection with a story, the series hops to another one with little resolution to the previous arc, and the reader has to wait months on end for a continuation. am i nitpicking here? the format of 8house kinda bothered me.
I agree with you 100% but more even more annoying is that they don't make it clear how the fuck it works. Just put "ISSUE 2 OF 3 - ISSUE 3 COMING JAN 2016!" on the cover and stop numbering the series outside of the arcs, is that so hard? There's an 8house #5: Yorris #2 but Kiem and Arclight are still ongoing? Or they're not? and there's gonna be a Yorris #3? Or not?
You have very vague impressionistic often non-liner story telling and then you're publishing the arcs simultaneously and the you're not making it clear when one begins and ends and then you're also delaying half of the issues by months. This is the sloppy shit that KILLS your comic regardless of quality or content. Get an editor.
>>79126021 indeed, but sometimes you gotta have the talent to back it up. it seems like Graham overextended himself somewhat, handling both series. maybe if he'd gotten a more high profile editor, Island would have received higher quality work. i can see 8house still working in a one arc at a time way, but the switching up stories - including the spin-off series - kinda detracts from the process, i think. the constant reshuffling of artists in Prophet worked better for that series. i think they were going for a similar thing but it just hasn't garnered as much interest.
>>79126188 yeah, i hear you. maybe they should have included a primer in the first few issues outlining the project. it kinda seems like amateur hour and Graham bit off more than he could chew. hopefully it gets on track soon and we get some great issues.

dude the internet has been something that gets looked at by every living organism on the planet every day for more than twenty years at this point. my ninety-seven year old grandmother knows about furries. there are uncontacted tribesmen in the back-hills of the Amazon browsing e621 right now on the smartphone of some anthropologist they ate. none of this information is obscure or esoteric any more.
