Taking a peek at Aaron Diaz's twitter the first thing I see is this, and I swear I remember seeing him write this same self-congratulatory tweet many times before.
I ask you: are there any other webcomic artists who are constantly praising themselves as much as Diaz is? I don't remember seeing that even from the ones who DO have some merit to be proud of.

Jon Rosenberg of "Multiverse" thinks very highly of his comic as a platform for commending on the racism of StarTrek TOG.
But he is a SJW troll so you can't take his shit seriously.
>>
Dawid Willis had a pretty self-congratulatory period after his first couple of paywall porn comics, proudly boasting on twitter about how great he is at drawing erotica and calling himself a porn lord. He's not exactly humble otherwise either, but considering how ridiculously boner-killingly poorly drawn the smut was his smugness over it really stood out.

winston "constellation of trolls" rowntree comes to mind

but i don't think anyone comes close to diaz, he's the absolute apex of webcomic narcissism. i can't believe he still has the balls to lecture people on acceptable use of cheesecake

Met him in real life at a convention. The undeserved smugness just radiates off of him. I was a fan of his fantasy comic at the time, knowing nothing else about him, so I went to get an autograph from him and the artist. He was such a jackass and so put off about signing something for a fan that combined with his undeserved ego he turned me off of his comic right then and there.
>>
>>71137553
Or writing a story. He can just not stop tweeting "advice" about how to construct a good story and write relateable characters while picking apart other people's work. Which is ridiculous when the only good thing about his own magnum opus is the (cheesecakey) art.

Sometimes I like to think that "Aaron Diaz" is nothing but this big performance by some talented artist who wants to see how the public would react to the most smug, self-centered, lazy, "feminist" artist character.

If he were a character in a fictional story he'd be pointed out as the obviously unrealistic strawman, he's just that ridiculous of a person. I'd hate to have him on my side of any argument.
>>
>>71137876
The whole Ashley Burch lust he has going on is very unhealthy.

It's one thing to obsess over some woman that turned him down, but to draw her with limbs cut off as fetish fuel with his own self insert following her like a puppy is freaky. You just know the balding beard goober has serious issues. Apparently he has a deep seated hatred for fit alpha types too, notice his comics are always featuring thin effeminate men.

If it's so good, why does he need to go fishing for compliments on twitter?

>>
>>71138461
Inflated patreon that far exceeds the artist's skill, talent, or ability.

That is success for webcomics.

Most of them are cunts because when someone's good at drawing they don't have to pay their dues, they get praised and fawned over just for drawing, so they tend to think they're superior to everyone. They never had to work for praise. In most of these webcomic cases, at least, and I can't think of an exception.

>publicly declaring your work to be "really good" after personally rereading it
I don't care how good the work is, this is never not a smug fucking thing to do. I don't even think it's a bad work (it might even be good, I guess), but this is just so masturbatory.

Christ, how divorced from reality do you have to be to not have some part of your brain stop you from doing this? "Hold up son, I think we might be going a little far here. Maybe just say you're proud of the work or something."

This is why people can't be trusted with shit like twitter. They just stop self reflecting and just spew every thought out into the world without sanity checking it in their brain.
>>
>>71138474
>>71138464

So it's based on nothing then? Kimiko is a cartoon character. She could look like a million different people. You need something more than "same haircut and female" to base an entire accusation on.

I mean, I hate the guy too, but lets make fun of him for the stupid shit he's actually said and done, there's no need to make up stupid rumors.
>>
>>71138474
>connected the dots

There's not much to the similarity other than "slim girl with short dark hair" though. Maybe that's just the type of girl he likes.
>>
>>71138464
care to illuminate us?
>>
>>71138512
Don't worry, anon. The fact you're even reflecting on this is a good sign.

There are plenty of good artists who don't have unchecked egos. In fact, many have the opposite problem, where they have easily rustled jimmies when it comes to their perception of their skills and work. But they're still good artists with good work and plenty of fans.

Just fight the good fight every day and remember to always try to be better.

The rumor's been around for ages.

It's particularly hilarious when you consider how often the creep googles his own name and sometimes comes to /co/. There was a previous thread where some "anon" mysteriously lost his shit and carried on an autistic argument against the rumor being true.

...So naturally it must be true, if only for the comedic value of baldy beard boy's tantrums.
>>
>>71138595
I really do want it to be true because it's fucking hilarious, I just wish we had more to go on. But I guess it's the sort of thing that can never really be proven unless he admits it.

I would but all sources are deemed too dangerous for the cucks.
>>
>>71138638
uh huh
>>
>>71138484
Yeah that's the shitty part. Especially when their comic is shit and they don't upload their content (if you can even call the short work content) consistently. I mean even if they can draw really well I still want to read something interesting or atleast funny. If I want good-looking panels I'd rather look up some web artist.
>>
>>71138527
Appreciate it. Hilariously enough, my brother's nickname for me is "shit" so it'll feel like family if you do.

>>71138552
Thanks, I will. Obamacare actually kinda came through and I got depression medicine so maybe one day it'll fully kick in and I can just make stuff just to make it rather than to push away the crazy thoughts.
>>
>>71138679

>maybe one day it'll fully kick in

It can take a while for this, so if medication is the way you wanna go make sure you stick at it. Can you not get psychotherapy or cognitive behavioural therapy on Obamacare? They did way more for me than medication ever did, and there's no point in putting all your eggs in one basket.

I've read Diaz's comic. Every page out so far. Maybe I'm an ignorant hayseed, but I have no fucking clue what it's even about.
>>
>>71138724
Yeah my primary care physician that I was assigned when I enrolled made a referral for therapy, I guess it's just up to the system how it's handled. I have something called an "intake" in the coming weeks to see where I fit, I guess.

>>
>>71138732
There's 3 stages to diaz

Some of his really old work is actually pretty good. There's no central storyline and it's all very bizarre.

Then he starts to get shitty when he settles down with his cast of recurring characters (kimiko, the twins).

When he gets rid of the twins, it's pure shit. Not because the twins were that good, it's just that he apparently wanted to write a super serious story about kimiko. I think Dark Science - the storyline he mentions in the OP - is the start of this phase.
>>
Andrew Hussie had a period when he was totally up his own ass, at about the peak of Homestuck's popularity. So some time after it had begun its descent into shit.

Lately he's had pretty much nothing to do with the fanbase, though, he closed his tumblr and hasn't done a Q&A or anything in years. Guess he got tired of it all.
>>
>>71138766
it's about having the laziest excuse to use the word transhumanism in comic form. Also lazily copying disney's art style.
>>
>>71138804
But what the fuck is the plot? Like..summarize what's happening cause I have fucking clue.
>>
>>71138819
Creators should never closely interact with their fans in the first place. Twitter and tumblr kind of force them to participate, though.
>>
>>71138847
CLOSELY interacting with their fans is one thing, but for a long while he actually had a pretty good thing going with them. People would ask him shit, and he'd either give a funny joke answer or he'd go on a long, cool explanation of shit. I sort of miss it.

Obviously, creators who have too much to do with their fans can get shit on for it, look at how tumblr turned on the Ava's Demon chick.
>>
>>71138732
Me neither, I gave up after a few chapters, It doesn't really draw you in and each dialog between characters is an excuse for him to explain yet another scientific fact that is too disconnected from the situation they're in. It's like the characters carry some encyclopedia and recite some weird fact out of the book.
>>
>>71138840
Oh I don't know, I stopped paying attention. That first storyline, dark science, I think it's about a super advanced ai robot, the singularity, some other bullshit. I haven't read it in years.

It's really not worth trying to understand, though.

Incidentally, if you want to check out the (actually good) webcomic that Diaz was trying to ape, when he first started out, it's called A Lesson is Learned But the Damage is Irreversible.

>>71136300

Diaz is a shitbag and the only think he's ever made that was any good was the philosophy D&D comic parody thing. That's literally it. Every other thing is just him masturbating with a Cintiq.

Dark Science is actually pretty terrible.
>>
>>71138933
I still like his style, it's just that everything else about him and his comic is shit.
>>
>>71138847
There are plenty of artists who can manage the delicate balance of fan interaction and not being a shit. No where near all of them or even a majority, I fear, but there are good artists who do good work and can still manage to communicate with fans like rational people and not descend into self wanking and outrage.

Ashley Cope is one of those, and routinely answers questions about her comic or just shoots the shit with fans. She also has a dedicated tumblr for the comic, separate from her more personal tumblr. Which, frankly, seems like a must for the modern internet.

>>71138957
The guy who does Endtown is pretty great too, when /co/ did a bunch of pictures for his birthday and sent them to him, he sent back a picture of his own thanking them. And he also answers questions about stuff too without spoiling plotlines, pretty decent guy all around.

>>71138804
Here are the 3 stages of diaz.

Stage 1: not bad, if a bit bizarre
>>
>>71138999
Stage 2: pretty bad, very pseudointellgectual
>>
>>71136300

Its weird that I actually finding myself needing to explain this but here we are...

What. the. fuck. do you think twitter is for?

Its nothing but an advertising tool for self-promotion. Some of you seem to have got into your head after seeing some funny tweets out there that such is what the medium is for, its a free entertainment platform for you and self-promotion is an atypical faux pas usage, but you've got it exactly backwards.

Do you people look at tv ads and are baffled why, say, Pepsi is talking about its own product and not promoting health insurance or weather-resistant house siding? Of course not, its a pepsi ad for pepsi. In the exact same light, you're choosing to read an ad for an artist then wondering what the fuck the artist is advertising himself for. Kindly remove your head from your ass.
>>
>>71138588
The DA artist comments explain everything:

>OKay... To answer such questions:
>
>YES, this will be Cat and Tanya's child (or children).
>YES, Cat R Waul is the biological father.
>YES, as a miricle, Cat impregnated Tayna.
>YES, involving sex duh (I'll leave it up to your imagination, or my brother, of what went on in the bedroom)
>As from the film Mr & Mrs Smith the scale is definitely a 10.
>
>YES, Tayna will have a safe birth.
>I also like the triplets idea...
>YES, the children will be generally mouse form and size (with a few cat features different on each child) One will have cat eyes!
>>
>>71139007
Stage 3: full retard, complete with a self-insert
>>
>>71139020
That still doesn't explain the logistics of the impregnation! Not that I WANT to know, but you can't just throw shit like that and be coy with the actual explanation
>>
>>71137876
>talented
he'a not even close to being talented, he's just technically correct in some painting techniques, his anatomy is amateurish at best and his storytelling is just disgusting
>>
>>71138957
It's hard to say if artists who manage to not get into terrible interactions with their fans are a minority or not, because those artists who refrain from spewing their every thought on twitter or Tumblr and instead stay in the shadows are boring to discuss, which is why they're forgotten and and everyone only notice the outspoken ones. There's a lot of comics that I read and enjoy but barely even remember the name of the author because they don't scream LOOK AT MEEE!!!! between every update.
Even with the really successful webcomics I could probably find just as many unremarkable artists as the ones who have gone batshit insane from their popularity, but they're hard to remember off hand because of their relative grey man approach to their success.

Nigga, you should have used the one where Aaron Diaz's self insert takes off his shirt and is fit and handsome.

>>71138933

There there anon.

I started working on my art and drawing because of bleedman.

I can probably draw better than diaz at this point.
>>
>>71138732
The first storyline is fairly simple, Robot from the future goes back in time and is followed by Futre Amish people who want to stop Kim from becoming Cyberdyne.

Dark Science is about Kim going to her father's Metropolitan, as in modeled after Metropolis, and then some stupid bullshit happens and Kim and Diaz go off to discover the secret of Dark Science, which is likened to Plato's allegory of the cave, alluded to in the most clumsy, paraphrasing of a wikipedia article ever.

Also, he had the gall to call the second book Purgatorio, because he deserves to do that.

In what universe has "Just reading my own stuff, and wow am I great" after critisizing other people ever been good self-promotion that doesn't make you look like a delusional egoshit? No-one is saying twitter shouldn't be used for self-promotion, we're saying that the image Diaz is painting of himself is about the worst kind he could possibly do.

You should be able to realize this unless you're literally Diaz.
>>
>>71139007

The terminologies are just thrown together haphazardly, if you're not familiar with the concepts you might think this is smart writing but its the exact opposite.

On one hand they have basically the same face to the point where it's uncanny. Ash has got a distinct look to her

>>
>>71139067
He disn't say Diaz was talented, he said he likes to think of the whole Dresden Codak fiasco and Aaron Diaz as a fake experiment puppeteered by some mastermind artist to make the most ridiculously enraging comic-to-artist combination ever. Imagine, say, Tracy Butler, secret millionaire artist, actually being the person behind DCodak, doing it all for the lulz.

That would be funnier than the reality that this is a real person who gets paid 5 grand a month to draw one page of... that.

It's all the dumber because plenty of artists can make pretty characters, ugly characters and emotive characters, and/or ones that go between all three depending on the circumstances.

It's not a matter of cuter, it's a matter of not legitimately retarded.

Also, if you'd have read the threads more closely, you'd see the various edits where her face is edited into one that's better drawn, but still plain.
>>
oh, but ignore the comment that goes along with the post I linked; supposedly that is a load of bullshit and SG's current derp artist was /always/ the intended artist.
>>
>>71139274
I remember reading some fantastic tumblr-post where a girl very politely tore him a new one, pointing out that while he could and should draw anything he wanted to, his female characters were constantly in states of undress, and even when clothed they were constantly being posed in ways where emphasis was based on their tits and asses. And that that's probably not a very good way for an artist who claims to be a feminist and attacks other artists for drawing sexy stuff ought to be behaving.

Or comedy, or inane bullshit, or in the case of one I particularity like, sci-fi/fantasy stories. Shoehorning a communication medium into a narrow definition because that's what some people use ti for is asinine.

By your logic, webcomic sites and personal blogs exist as nothing but advertising tools.

is. Which is what that was.

Aaron Diaz actually is apparently aware of what competent panel design is, but he thinks he's above it.

You know how they say, to learn the rules before you bend them? Well, Diaz thinks that means that you have to break them to be a master.

There are comic artists who can eschew classic panel design and do it well, but Diaz is not one of them, but he fails to understand this particular fault, as he does all his personal faults.

He's like a legitimate child. Nothing is his fault.
>>
>>71139007
>>71139026
Follow Diaz's comics and you follow all the fetishes he gathered over the years and crammed into one character.

So far in Kimiko you have:
- Asian/half Asian
- short hair with white streak
- heterochromia
- amputation and cyborg limbs
- muscles
- scars/unnatural lines on skin

I wonder if she'll get a cyborg dick when Diaz discover futa.

>like Squirrel Girl is supposed to be

Squirrel girl used to look like a fucking troll.

Honestly she should really be plain. I'd love to see more variations in comic book characters. I feel like the art in the SG book COULD be that, but it's so rushed and sloppy for whatever reason. We even see that the artist is capable of something more polished from his personal work.
>>
>>71139333
>Follow Diaz's comics and you follow all the fetishes he gathered over the years and crammed into one character
That's the thing I particularly hate about Diaz.

He's essentially a fanfiction writer, a bad one at that, but since he possesses a modicum of talent, it's excused.

Like you and >>71139087 said, Kim can't even be consistent with her characterization. She's just his waifu.
>>
>>71139252

Yes, and no one liked that.

She still looks plain in the variant cover. It's possible for a character with a plain character design to still be cute. Look at how many people get hard over Velma.

There's a Dean Koontz book that I like, called 'Hideaway'. In this book there's a character, and he's an author of several novels.

>>71139317

I swear to christ, we've reached the point that retards call any art that isn't hideous, even if it lacks anything approaching sexualized imagery, "fap bait".

Squirrel Girl is fully covered in the image and you can barely see her body at all, her hips are obscured by cake and squirrels, her chest is jacket-covered and obscured by her arm, her face is kinda dorky-looking and she has the grandest of buck teeth. The only thing you could even remotely call "fap bait" is that she does look female and isn't a land whale. And thats the new barrier of entry for artwork being rejected as nothing but bottled sexism.

I bet dumbasses look at that image and call it "healthism" for showing nuts, fruits, and vegetables - its obviously fat-shaming in action.

Upon looking at it while I was digging it up, I realized the other person was following the spacial layouts of the page, rather than the bubbles. You can see it based on the unbroken like they take with GC page, clearly confused by the lack of distinct paneling, but the clearly delineated and broken lines they take on DC. It's still sort of wrong even on that account, because you're supposed to follow Antimony's hair in the traditional, english reading fashion being your guide.

Still kind of insane. When this happens is usually when you take a step back and sanity check your thinking.

She looks fucking terrible. It's not a matter of her looking plain or not-cute. She seriously looks like a retarded dude. Her head is far bigger than the rest of her body. It's disproportionate. She's got disproportionately huge tube legs and her entire lower half in general is off scale from her upper half. Look at her pencil thin wrists and forearms compared to her gigantic ass and legs and head.

To be honest I do almost agree with him on the GC one. The blue-white lines with the red circles inside sorta distract my eye and I find myself having to force myself to focus and read it properly instead of just letting my gaze wander where it naturally heads.

The body isn't too bad, if very stylized. The problem is in the face - it's very awkwardly proportioned, and would work much better for a character like Toad from X-men or something rather than on the main character, she just looks too stupid and lumpy to draw much appeal.

This is a very quick and crap edit, but giving her slightly larger pupils and just moving her features down her face a little already does wonders, imo.

>>71139374
Actually, the original "plain" design was allegedly mostly due to Ditko half-assing all his work-for-hire in the 80's, because he felt that him working on anything that wasn't Mr. A was beneath him.

No, it means not everything needs to follow LOOMIS 100% if it doesn't want to. Sure there's shit art done by people who have no idea what they're doing, but making fun of a piece because it "doesn't follow basic anatomy" is fucking retarded. More than half the shit you probably like doesn't follow basic anatomy. Hell, most comics use exaggerated "heroic" anatomy that looks nothing like the real thing with characters that are 8 heads tall instead of the real world average.

>>71139743
I'm not saying you're wrong, but Sailor Moon is in there too.

Cal Arts and the Disney Princesses are the big one though. You are correct.

The thing about the "Tumblr" style is that it is hugely varied within its samey looking style.

It's like anime, you can tell an anime's an anime despite the fact that they don't all look the exact same. Same goes for Tumblr, that while it is all derived from the same general sources, the artists manage to adapt them into different combinations while still looking homogenous.

>>71139456
Diaz's panel orientation is apparently a feat of skill on his part. A skill which he doesn't possess at the level he thinks.

A similar thing can be seen in the Latin Poets, who were skilled enough to pull of such feats; they'd use the nature of Latin to make convoluted page long sentences which weren't clear until the last word.

Gimme a sec. Ok.

Bugs Bunny is a well executed stylized design. Even though his proportions aren't "ideal" or anything, he remains appealing and nothing jumps out as being overtly wrong. Even though he has tube legs, they have clear joints without the need to breaks style by resorting to obvious knees. From this model sheet, it's really easy to tell that the artist had a clear understanding of posing, gesture, and even anatomy.

Moen doesn't. Her anatomy varies wildly from sketch to sketch, and facial features seem to slide around. Consistency of the mark of actual skill, and it can be found all over Bugs' model sheet - the consistency is rock solid. Moen's isn't. Giruhiru's cover isn't more appealing because it's cuter - it's more appealing because it's more technically sound. Despite having much less contrast when you compare the two - >>71139317
>>71139473
Giruhiru's is a better composition that's more dynamic overall. Moen relies on contrast because her composition is weak. She honestly seems like an artist who only got so far with fundamentals, to a "good enough" place. But as >>71139652 shows she is really very lacking.

Yeah, It's kind of sad that /co/ has to criticise bad anatomy and the cartoonish style when the actual writing is the problem. But it's not like /co/ actually gets funnybooks.
>>
>>71140066
It's clearly stylized. That's the definition of the word. Whether or not it's done badly is a different story.

Personally I think her choice of shapes is fine in that one image here >>71139640, but she just lacks the technical skill to pull it off. Not to mention her consistency is super bad, so even if she did draw it nicely it would change panel to panel.

I think she's badly misreading the cues here. Anon will fap to ANYTHING, and a bunch of fuckers here actually have SG at waiful level. Mostly from the GLA appearances.

>>
>>71137553
>pretty sure he was joking about that
Self-awareness in David WIllis' mind is limited to "I realize toys I collect are actually made for children".
>>
>>71140155
Basic anatomy WAS applied anon. It's not a blind crayon scribble. The artist knows what a human looks like and made changes accordingly. It's a design based on a human therefore it's a stylized human drawing. She could have done it badly, but there's no need to try to change the definition of a word just to shit on some artist you don't like, or because you don't want to lose an internet argument to a stranger.
>>
>>71140207
>Basic anatomy WAS applied anon.
I disagree. Wholeheartedly, even. Anatomy is about the basic, underlying structures that make up the body. Moen doesn't seem to have good awareness of the structure of the human body and relies on shapes that seem alright rather than genuine anatomical knowledge. It's this lack of structural understanding that leads to the inconsistencies in her work.

Please stay out of arguments if you don't want to follow the comment chain. I was talking about one specific design she drew, not the comic as a whole. I agree the whole thing is a mess and she has problems with inconsistencies

>>71140247
I see the problem here is our different understanding of the term "basic anatomy". I'll concede to the fact that we're both not going to come to terms on this and say that yes the book isn't drawn very well, but I still don't find much objection to some of the designs the artist put forward for SG, as long as a better artist was hired to draw them.

>Tfw Solomon used to be so based

Why did he stop? Did he really turn SJW?
>>
>>71139788
The problem there is that most cartoons still start with a good fundamental base. You can clearly see they have a consistent anatomy, even when exaggerated for effect. SG doesn't, even remotely. Her features float like pool toys around her face and her body tends to do much the same. It doesn't look "cartoony" it looks like an attempt at a cartoon with no knowledge of how to construct a human body.

Take the two examples posted previously. Even with Bugs and Elastigirl, you can see a coherent structure to their form. Elastigirl never deforms in ways not expected of a rubber character. She also doesn't lose that underlying structure I was talking about. No matter how she gets exaggerated it still fits because the artists at Pixar understand basic construction of form. The same is true of Bugs. No matter how often the character deformed or was twisted, smashed, or turned to goop, it still had solid fundamentals. SG does not.

Shockingly, even in the world of cartooning, some things just don't work. Hell, you could argue it was going for an "ugly" style, but then I'd point you at Crumb. I'm not a huge fan, but his style is downright pungent at times and yet, again, it still looks correct albeit not necessarily appealing.

Damn, because he used to be so succinct, especially as he targeted the more popular webcomics.

>Diaz is an unreliable hack who probably puts more effort into masturbating than he does his webcomic. Since he'd have to beat off less than once a month for that to be false, it's a good assumption to make.

>That's really the only reason people come back to Dresden Codak. The unrealistic, "I wish she was real and mai waifu~" sentiment that its readers get when Kimiko flounces across the bizarre panel layout and fills the air with a wall of fucking text about how ridiculously Aspergian she is. If there weren't people on Wikipedia staunchly opposed to it, I guarantee you that there would be an article on her and this fucking awful webcomic ten times the size of the ones on Hitler, Stalin and Lex Luthor combined.

Funny how Codak also became a "feminist" straight after this though...and then flipped out when that guy made the comic simply ribbing him

Like few days ago Cho makes some cheesecake, people made a big fucking deal out of it, earlier couple idiots misread two consenting adults having drunk sex and it's statutory, they call for Remender's job, few years ago Ex-DC employee critiques a Teen Titans cover, they get death threats and apparently hacking attempts.

Style-wise KLK looks like Gurren Lagaan and Re: Cutey Honey. Those aren't older anime.

The only thing that KLK has that makes it resemble older anime is bolder lines. That's really it, everything else is very in line with modern anime.

>>71144490
That's like saying Evangelion and TTGL resembles old mech anime. Duh.
>>
>>71144466
True. The only exception was one guy searching for manga that I saw some day. Remebering of him, actually, is what brought me here [and the spectation of finding Spider-man threads too].

I've heard Diaz has hired another artist to help him put out comics at a reasonable pace, but lets remember the old Diaz work schedule

>>Diaz finishes page of comic
>Congratulates himself, basically gives himself an entire month off for working so hard
>Between months 1 and 2, fans are getting restless, so Diaz will release some line art
>He also does some streams where he dresses that girl character up in different clothing
>The fans go apeshit
>He waits out the second month of doing basically no work, sometimes into the start of the third month with no updates
>Then he decides to actually get to work
>He starts putting in long hours on the comic
>He also makes sure to tell everyone he can via twitter and other outlets how hard he is working, and how he deserves donations for his hard work
>He works all day every day with little sleep, milking his fans for everything he can get
>He finishes the (basically completely unstarted) comic update in a week
>The fans shower him with praise and money
>Diaz takes another month off to relax, because he worked so hard

And that's how Dresden Codak averaged 8 updates a year. And of course that's an overall average from when he was doing short comics. His Dark Science updates were 3+ months apart.

I miss realistic, not super stylized Gainax. But Honey Mayo flopped and no one here has seen Gunbuster.

Honneamise(or however the fuck it's spelled) had some of THE best worldbuilding I've ever seen in anything ever. But it had a lot of problems, too. It would have done better as a series of OVAs or something.

A lot of OVA"s left you wanting more which is great.

I think it's when people tell you directly that they don't like your new stuff and want the old stuff again that gets to writers and artists. My stuff is very different from a little spiderman bit, and I'm just happy it makes people happy by itself.

You can still enjoy things knowing they're done by a creator with bad opinions y'know. I read old pulpy sci-fi because it's fun but I most of the authors were eye-deep in homophobia and misogyny.

It's actually a pretty shitty story and falls apart under basic scrutiny. The first question that pokes a gigantic hole in it is why is a world that is capable of timely interstellar travel still using petroleum for fuel? Fuck, why are they using it to make plastics? We have bioresins NOW. Why not just go to the moon and scoop up all the He3 just fucking sitting there on the surface? Why not use some of that space-time fuckery they have access to to siphon hydrogen from Jupiter instead of going through all the trouble of nuking an entire planet to oblivion and then making millions of years pass instantly? How are there any microorganisms left to turn all that organic matter into usable crude? And so on.

He wrote a shitty story, realized it was shitty, and put a comic around it so that people would focus on the fact that he was dumb enough to do something like that and never actually criticize the shitty story it contains.
