>inb4 Gamergoobers and /Pol/
Honestly this comic looks pretty great and it's probably gonna be a lot of fun, and isn't that what we want with comic books?
To have fun?
Here are more fun comics by her
Read them and remember she is called the female Frank Miller for a reason
Why would you want a job at a big comic company?
Is that it?
So I guess, judging by that other preview, they suddenly bond, and then he becomes a good guy or something. Then she tries to get him a job.
I suppose the art is okay, but those weird little "chibicat" moments are, well, weird. It's Kate Leth, so the writing's has that "modern" touch, by which I mean it's like someone trying too hard to be hip and teenage, a la Squirrel Girl. But, for whatever reason, that's what people are into.
For my opinion that no one asked for, this is probably going to be one of those comics that's at least "meh" but sells pretty well, or at least is advertised as selling well and being popular.
probably. I mean, if you work at Marvel, and email a guy a few comics you've already made, it'll probably get run so long as no other writers are using those characters and you're liked enough around the office.
>she is called the female Frank Miller for a reason
Anon, who the fuck are you and what do you mean by this statement?
Sad because journalists have nothing better to write about other than the evil 4chins opinion about a comic?
Get a hold of yourself.
Which is why the CA shills started it here.
The best thing is to ignore this and move on.
But I doubt /co/mrades will do that.
The best way to say that something is shit, it's to ignore it.
Imagine this thread being archived with only 10 replies. Impossible.
Yeah no thanks to you not saging your post to prevent it from being bumped or just following your own advice and ignoring the thread.
Oh, my mistake.
Is it me or is there a complete lack of hard-boiled action drama in Big Two? I haven't read new issue of Daredevil yet, but everything looks so colorful and bright and shit and devoit of depth it makes me wonder if writer even cares about the character they write about, as long as they cram their shitty jokes. Like, stakes aren't high, why should I care?
They are trying to make their own Batgrill
They think that a white woman with a penis (CamStew= Kate Leth) and a pseudo tumblrmanga artist (Babs and literally who) are a selling formula
>profiting off controversy
That's nothing new and something that can't be stopped in the internet age.
>lack of hard-boiled action drama
Someday Noir shall rise again.
You know when they play those Yugioh Abirdged showings at an Anime Convention and all the girls are constantly giggling at every stupid joke and "awwww"ing whenever the character they like appears? This is what it feels like it comic form, and it's as miserable as when I had to experience it then.
You say that as if we have a choice.
Regardless if we "don't take the bait" and discuss something normally all that is needed is a few out of context posts with some twisting of words to make a new headline.
Stop worrying about bait and pop culture webnews sites to the point where you it prevents your from giving your opinion on a preview of a comic.
let's be honest, does anyone expect anything from this at all? This is the same bitch who gave us Powered Up, which is a bland piece of soggy white bread.
A-at least the art is cute?
I'll "privately converse" you in a second if your don't stop fearing a stupid nerdshit site.
Fuck you, I refuse to let cute things be a tumblr thing.
so basically it's like squirrel girl, only with better art?
i mean even the beginning of this comic is just about the same as beginning of squirrel girl.
>text boxes explaining the character, rather than showing her off
>lame jokes and visual gags
I know very little about Kate Leth, other than what the MRA reddit rejects flood this board with, but with what little I knew I knew I wasn't going to like this.
Which is a shame, because I was interested in the character after watching Jessica Jones, but this just makes my chest hurt from holding in the disgust.
>But, for whatever reason, that's what people are into.
What's the mystery? Boring people with no real accomplishments or prospects beyond being bohemian turds clinging on to their childhood and teenage years--a time where it seemed like they still had potential--because millennials are the Peter Pan generation.
That's really all we are. A generation of people who desire to live an eternal childhood.
Let me guess.
>>Oh man, having to balance a real life and superhero stuff is so CRAZY! Look! It's a completely goofy villain! Also my cast will most likely be a black woman and a gay man who has extremely tacky fashion!"
It's kinda hard to enjoy something when you know the shit they did.
Most of the people here don't like her because she had an affair with a man with terminal cancer. After he died, she tried to make the event all about her like it would make her look good or something.
She may or may not have crashed the family's funeral.
I hate when comics fuck with 4th wall stuff and become self-referential. That garbage about her mom writing comic books about her pretty much retconning the Patsy Walker books as her mom writing sexist comics or whatever is retarded.
>Read them and remember she is called the female Frank Miller for a reason
Meh, doesn't really do anything for me. Quirky books aren't my thing anyway, but at least someone is doing something with the character. Shame more interesting female leads aren't getting another shot but on the opposite end of the spectrum, I'm still miffed about JiM Sif getting cancelled
Posting the hi-res version of this preview as one image. This is autism.
Can I have a female led ongoing that's not teenage quirky shit?
I'm really tired of this same style for every superheroine that gets a book.
She's now sinking deeper into the ley lines, earth mother, and occult witchery milieu instead of the old chaos magik and hexes - which means it's being aimed squarely at being gothic teenage crap.
They were autobiographical IIRC.
Like all Marvel comics in the Marvel universe.
I just went to /pol/ for five seconds.
Trust me, it's even easier there. Just talk like a liberal.
I thought people were just exaggerating about how cancerous /pol/ was but jesus it's like a broken recorder in there.
>cheating is the worst thing ever
it's in fact one of the most common things among humans and an integral part of birth, development and end of relationships
and in any case it's a stritly private thing between the married couple, and it would be on the married guy, not on the unmarried woma he's having sex with
are you against divorce and against breaking up with a boyfriend/girlfriend?
Because if not you are a hypocrite.
>for committing adultery?
mohammed pls, go back to saudi arabia
love and relationships aren't a public matter. They are a private matter between the lovers
I don't see why /co/ sees Kate as such a boogeywoman. Sure, she's pretty awful and arrogant, but she's pretty much on a one way street towards implosion.
A lot of her detractors are afraid (and she hopes) that this book will be her ticket to the top and in a year, she'll be writing on the Avengers (having turned the entire team into nonbinary, genderqueer POCs) and get a writing credit on the new Captain Marvel movie, all while her ego swells and she regularly attends panels where she insults people who ask her how they can break into the biz
What'll probably happen is:
>numerous articles on ComicsAlliance and the Mary Sue to hype up the series and boost sales but they start off flat and do the usual sink
>Kate and and her pals try to rally the Valkyries, but sales continue to plummet despite trending on social media and articles about how it's trending on social media
>Kate takes to Twitter for damage control while also making vague claims about being asked to punch up a script for the MCU, but doesn't give too much detail out of fear of being called on her bullshit
>Marvel puts her in reserve once Hellcat is finished, alcoholism intensifies
>things come to a head when she either gives a rambling, slurry interview or inappropriately touches Tom Hiddleston on the red carpet at the Thor: Ragnarok premiere and she gets shut out of Marvel entirely
From there, it's either seeing it as a wakeup call and getting clean or doubling down and blaming everyone else. And since you read everything posted about you on 4chan, Kate, I'd like to take this opportunity to recommend you pour out the vodka in your cabinet now. You've been handed a golden ticket, don't screw this up with booze.
if a married person has sex with an unmarried person the one at fault is the married person.
But in any case their fault is against their spouse, not against society or morality, and so it's up to their spouse to ecide how to handle the situation and what to do with their relationship
Are you looking for noir specifically, or just serious stuff with higher stakes? Cause I can help you with the latter. There's also enough of that sort of stuff as long as you look outside of the Big 2.
Humphries failed upwards because he's the worst kind of company stooge. The kind that'll do whatever editorial tells him to do and never dispute it and cares more about the job than any kind of artistry. There's no risk of someone like Humphries taking the popularity he gains from Marvel and ditching them to work on creator owned books because he doesn't have the ambitions or creative integrity to do that.
When has a 4chan thread ever shown up on,or even been referred to on CA.
In fact aside from Rich Johnson plagiarizing, the threads co gets the most traction are our Hypercrisis threads.
THCB started a Fucking annotation career off a thread on co.
"Oooh blogs are gonna talk us" just smacks off as needy
What are you talking about? Series like that are always succesful with their critics. Look at Batgirl and Squirrelgirl. They are highly praised by internet critics in spite of being mediocre. KSD's Caprain Marvel was the same, and it was continued by Marvel as well, in spite of selling so low.
>we have to reach that fat girl demographic
>lets make her suit (which is supposed to assist her in fighting criminals and keep from getting in her way so she doesnt fuck herself up) super baggy as to not offend children reading a fucking fantasy comic book
>Art style should mimic squirrel(and bat)girl because girl readers only enjoy cute and retarded looking art. It also helps if the artist doing the book has a gross lack of anatomy.
>oh, also, we need terrible jokes, because girls don't like yucky serious topics unless its about sex or sex.
This is how these meetings at marvel go. If I was a woman (only internally *_*) I would be pissed as fuck that this is the type of shit the big's think I want to read constantly. Just as offended as I was in the 90's when "bad girl" comics where a thing... because its retarded and stupid.
Nah, sleeping with someone else's spouse is a shit thing to do and you're a shit person if you do it, no matter how you justify it. If nothing else, it tells everyone you know that you cannot be trusted.
The one on the left is Damion Hellstrom, the literal Son of Satan. Questionable taste.
>walks around with his shirt off a lot
>has a brand, even more awesome than a tattoo
>bad boy with a good heart
What's there not to love? He's practically a textbook romance novel hero.
So what is the author complaining about?
I can't imagine she's going to start dating some soft, kind, sensitive Peter Parker type instead. That's male wish fulfillment, not female wish fulfillment.
Was it ever confirmed she broke up the marriage? I was under the impression she was in some kind of poly arrangement. As far as I can tell the "she crashed the funeral and the wife didn't even know who she was" thing is 4chan apocrypha.
No. There's an in-universe Marvel Comics that publishes comics based on the adventures of actual superheroes, but they're not accurate to what actually happens. Marvel put out a series of comics in the early 00s that were supposed to be the in-universe Marvel Comics and they were really inaccurate. The X-men were basically a mutant suicide squad, doing dirty missions for Captain America to wipe their records clean, stuff like that.
Judging from the shit I see getting snuck into comics, half the industry is on /pol/.
>it's a joke
No, pre-/pol/ ironic racism was a joke. Or at least laid back. The white genocide panic neo-nazi day of the rope fantasizing that goes on there now is about 85% genuine.
They're an embarrassment to the site, a collection of mostly-18-to-30-year-olds who think they missed out on some grand golden age, if only they could go back to the good old days when they weren't alive. They're r9k except less pitiable.
No, you loony fucker, it's on both the people that sleep together. The "hur hyuck I'm not married so it's on the married person" shtick is the latest disgusting bullshit homewreckers have latched onto in an effort to not feel quite so bad about wrecking homes.
Cheat on your spouse? You're a cunt.
Sleep with someone's spouse? You're a cunt.
True, but Moen and KSD aren't the equivalent of a dumpster fire when posting on social media. That's what's going to do Leth in. That or going all Courtney Love at a red carpet after pregaming beforehand.
/new/ was 90% Jews trolling Jews.
The percentage is lower now, there are some true believers (especially Muslims, oddly enough), but it's still mostly trolls.
Don't believe me? Get your Yiddish or Hebrew words wrong, and watch the supposed white supremacists rush to correct you.
Well, I'm pretty sure that her relationship with Hellstrom led her to commit suicide at one point. Also, the other dude in that frame was her ex who became a supervillain and tried to murder her on multiple occasions.
As much as I dislike Leth, she's pretty on-point with that stuff
Yeah, but this actually has good, cute art as opposed to Squirrel Girl which is physically hard to look at. Plus it's really like issue 11 for Squirrel Girl so it makes sense that it would quickly settle back to where it left off before the relaunch. Relaunches are great for the initial boost in sales but that shit doesn't maintain. I imagine this'll do better than that.
I can see it doing 15 issues.
This unending need to bait thin-skinned, easily triggered autists is why /co/ has become such a shit hole. Can't you for once in your life not pretend to be retarded?
>What are in need of work
I miss Kathryn Immonen already, why isn't she getting more work? She writes better than Kate and most of these current boring quirky writers.
I think Bellaire from #1 is staying on as colourist.
It takes a special kind of retard to respond to bait that lazy. Congratulations, /co/mrade.
This inspired me to look up USG's sales figures.
>October, issue #1: 43,155
November, issue #2: 23,064
Let's compare that to a book that has similar prospects, but is about a character even fewer people like, Angela: Queen of Hel:
>Issue #1, October: 39,271
>Issue #2, November: 23,264
Angela is actually currently selling better than Squirrel Girl. Let that sink in.
Great, another marvel grrl power webcomic masquerading as a real comic. Why are most female artists only webcomic-tier? And why is furry Hellcat the best Hellcat? (don't deny it).
Your lack of spoonfeeding betrays your lack of proofs.
Becasue a former child star/talk show host that got beaten by her mom is less interesting that an archie andrews expy that married the son of satan, went insane after seeing his true form, killed herself and then came back with special hell powers.
>Why are most female artists only webcomic-tier
H-how do I learn to draw and ink like a real man, /co/
She's a superhero, you dumb fuck.
>“Generika is a snarky, funny, adventurous, brave, super competent and average, relatable teenage girl. She’s smart, always ready to enter a fray, never backs down from a fight! But she’s also very, very flawed: she’s stubborn. She’s a very strong female character is what I’m trying to say. She brings color to Character X’s world, and allows us to see him more outside the costume. He may have saved the planet a dozen times, but when it come to opening a tin can on his own, he’s absolutely inept in a way that makes you really depressed and miserable. Generika is there to help you see that, and, who knows, maybe one day she’ll go on the field on her own as well? Only time can tell.”
Nah, it's a woman and the minus privilege you get from that makes it okay
I saw someone on tumblr bringing up how white privilege is present in how Japan is racist. Don't use logic with these people
>snarky, funny, adventurous, brave, super competent and average, relatable teenage girl. She’s smart,
But me reading about a guy with muscles is the power fantasy
Cause it is so easily turned to a positive so the character seems even more great, but in the readers head they can still say they are flawed and realistic
