The comic gets shit done and the story is self-contained. It's also not afraid to portray rich business owners like Mr. Slate and Crod as just ordinary people with flaws like everyone else.

I don't really like this resolution because it didn't resolve the initial conflict
When you're at the top, it's easy to see the value of everyone getting only what they "deserve".
Slate only found that was wrong after he was no longer at the top.

But what if he really was at the top the entire time? Then he'd keep on being a bastard forever? Some people really are on top all the time, so does that excuse their actions?

Just like real life.

>>
>>90335279
I just didn't like how honest and true Slate's confession was
It was too on the nose.

It'd have been better if it subverted itself again at the end
Like, the lesson he learned wasn't that everyone has weakness relative to someone else, but rather "We gotta fuck the guys above us because they're inhuman monsters"
Then Slate tries to recruit Fred in toppling Clod
>>
>>90334946
And the moral of the story is: always remember to unionize, so that your boss doesn't have to go through a self-humiliating journey of discovery involving an eagle and a dishonest dating partner.
>>
>>90335417
But Clod isn't a monster, he's flawed just like everyone else.

She was indeed being dishonest, but dishonesty is celebrated in Vorpianism, provided that you've personally benefited from said dishonesty (bonus points if you've inconvenienced or harmed someone weaker than you in the process).

It's better that Flintstones be short and sweet, and loved for as long as people continue to read comics, rather than wither and rot in its old age like The Simpsons.

Gwenpool isn't that bad but she's worse on every other book. Plus I'm pretty sure she'll be Marvel-cancelled like every other Marvel book and be relaunched every year and a half with a #1.

>>90335874
12 issues is actually probably about right for a comic like this. Get your jabs in, tell some good jokes, give some satire on plenty of issues while you can, but don't over stay your welcome. 6 issues is a little too short, see Russell's run on Prez which could have used a second Arc. But I don't know if I'd stick with it for 24 or 36 issues. The joke (and this is very much a one joke premise, all the little things like the Homo Habowlis sign are all the same joke) would get old.

Have you ever noticed how bizarre it is that the media generally always depicts the rich as hating the poor and doing everything in their power to hurt them when in reality the rich are the same people perpetuating this myth while also being the biggest supporters of charity literally cannot stop tripping over themselves to say positive things about the less fortunate.
After a while the trope just starts looking like self deprecation.
>>
>>90335111
His position never really changed, though. He just found out there was someone even higher above him, and experienced essentially what he himself did to his workers. He realized that if he has the attitude that everyone can be replaced, that means everyone's replaceable, including him. Because there's always someone more rich and powerful than you.

Charities are for tax deductions and everyone in the public eye wants to look like they care, do you think their charitable donations are even a fraction of their net gross? It seems more like they know they can't be stopped, and any negative depiction the public cooks up just makes them seem silly, shallow and opportunistically greedy. It's easier to rip someone off if they think you're foolish
>>
>>90336443
The media are the rich though.
The whole idea of the evil rich person spitting on the poor is a story told by the rich to the poor to villainize the rich, shit makes no sense.
That comic was probably drawn by somebody that was quite wealthy.

Do they have to be?
Also didn't Bill Gates donate his entire income for a couple of years to charity?
Also if charity can only be a facaade why be upset if someone doesn't donate to it?
Wouldn't this make a rich person that doesn't donate to charity more honest by comparison?
I just don't see how this is a game where anyone doesn't end up the bad guy.

Honesty has nothing to do with murder.

Now you're understanding why communists call their footsoldiers "useful idiots."

Class consciousness is a high-class construct that the rich dangle in front of the poor in order to trick them in to doing their bidding.

(That's not to say that some leaders don't preach a "classless" society for the same reason....)

I've never cared for The Jetsons all that much.

I mean Flintstones was always meant to be a spoof on modern times so it was always full of material or characters.
But Jetsons was just future antics, so it was just "crazy technology" "pushing a button is hard work" kinda jokes that I felt got tired way faster.

Stock value is based on how good the stock traders think your company is doing, not how your company is actually doing.

Slate cut back on expenses, which makes his company look more successful, thereby increasing stock value. The fact that he also cut profits in half will not matter until they report it (at the next fiscal year probably).

Steve Jobs donated 0 money to charity throughout his lifetime, and there are numerous anecdotes of him abusing his wealth, my favourites are when he denied parenthood claiming he was sterile and when he bought a new car every few months just so he can drive it around without a license plate (there was a law saying that new cars have x months to get a new license plate, so he bought a new car whenever the limit was up).

There's a few very charitable types, but there have been several studies just dedicated to comparing the charity within different income brackets.

It typically follows the trend that richer people give more in raw monetary value. However, they give less money in proportion to what they actually make.

In other words, if you compare a guy who makes 60,000 dollars/year to a guy who makes 2,000,000 dollars/year, the former is more likely to give a larger percent of his income to various causes, even if he can't give as much as the latter. Unless the wealthier person has an extra incentive/chance of reimbursement.

The reason for this is largely psychological. If you have 100 dollars and you want to give 20% of it to someone, that's easy. You still have 80 bucks. No big deal.

Now let's say you have 1,000,000 dollars and you want to give 20% of THAT. You're no longer a millionaire. It seems like a massive chunk of change.

The more you have, the more inclined you are to hoard it. Even more so if you've never actually been without, before. Someone born into affluence has never had to struggle, so they're terrified of losing cash.

It seems like the exact opposite would be true, A person that has known hardship isn't going to be so willing to part with money and will be frugal while a person that has never known anything but wealth will not understand the true worth of money and spend it flippantly.
I say this as a person that has been poor most of my life and even as I am starting to work my way out of poverty I can't bring myself to even consider wasting money I don't absolutely need to spend even if I was a millionaire I would be frugal.

Yes, but the other side of it posits that someone who struggles is going to more more sympathetic to other people who struggle, and be more inclined to help them. The Golden rule and all.

There's a limit, of course. People in the poverty line don't give as much as people in the middle.

I know how hard it is to break out of the "hold on to every bit habit." But then there are also the rich people who do things like go out, abuse the waitress, and leave a scanty tip because lol she was lazy. It has a lot to do with personality and empathy as well as sheer wealth class.

That's part of the psychology at work.

A person not raised in wealth is not used to living in a way other than paycheck to paycheck so they have very little relevant skills/experience when it comes to maintaining that wealth long enough to be donating in the first place.
For example. Did you know that all business lunches are for free after the tax deduction? So long as it was an official meeting for business purposes you don't have to pay shit for food.
A person not born into wealth is going to have no goddamn idea that he/she could/should be doing that to save money in the first place.
Or yachts.(my memory isn't perfect on this one so this is more of a guideline) You can get the US government to give you money for a second house at the cost of something i can't recall since it's negligible after you do this. So what you do is give a boat a kitchen, bathroom, etc to have it technically be considered a house. Then you rent that fucker out to the yacht club for free money. And you can still take your yacht out for a spin during the times you decided to not rent it out instead of gathering barnacles like people who don't know of this trick would be doing.

But that is exactly wrong, a person that is used to being frugal will continue to be frugal even if they suddenly find themselves with money, the ones that you see quickly blow through money and end up back where they started are people that were usually on welfare or so ridiculously poor that they had as little understanding of the worth of a dollar as a rich person, but working poor people that live paycheck to paycheck are not as likely to be so careless with money they have.

Obscure? It's the fucking difference between a gift and a prize. It's not obscure. It's about as basic a tax detail as you can possibly fucking get, especially when you deal with television. She could have paid the taxes and had it filed as a gift by her show's accountants. The recipients would have been in the clear. Instead, it was categorized as a prize.

Game shows as far as I know offer you to trade it in for cash value. Thats it. And the lottery taxes still catches people to this day. Its why you here about people going bankrupt and other stupid shit.

Her company went out of its way to pay off as much as it could for people. Its the exact damn opposite of showing spite and greed. Bitching about this is looking a gift horse in the month.

>>90334916
This resolution feels too facile to me. Slate has one setback and he suddenly turns humble and everything is fixed? He suddenly doesn't care about his profit anymore instead of trying to maximize his profit even more to one-up Clod? Not to mention that the moral of the story falls rather flat when guys like Clod and that blonde are still living the high life with no consequences. Rather than showing Slate did something wrong, all it showed was that Slate was too weak to be part of the elite so he fell back on the "weak" religion. It literally proves Vorp's point that only losers need mercy and compassion.

Because it's unfortunately true. It's just that many more people are losers than they realize. But the actual wealthy and powerful could not give a shit mercy and compassion, and never will. Which is why it's up to the rest of us losers, even those more well off, to pick up the slack.

You're problem is that you're looking for a comic to shove some idea of morality down your throat in the most hamfisted way possible, rather than tell a story about characters written in a believable manner.

he's right about the media.

It's one of the best comics of the year
Good writing and art and aesops.
Plus the Stone Age stuff lets them do some pretty remarkable philosophic explorations that feel sort of schmaultzy but not awkward
>>
>>90358351
Sure.
It's a clusterfuck with varying rules in every province and its often led and directed by ideals and emotional stories of fairness (from both the right and left) rather than efficiency and rational compassion

#Flintstones comic #Marxist rant against #America. Personal attack on #POTUS. Sad. Cartoon better.
>>
this comic is so fuckin good
>>
>>90358899
Is Flintstones /co/'s favorite book?
>>
>>90358983
It's definitely one of the favorites.

DC has some very well liked books here like Deathstroke, New Super-Man and RHATO.

Uhhh - hey retard, it isn't shoehorned, it's an intrinsic part of the book, and it's part of what makes it worth reading at all.
>>
DO WE KNOW FOR SURE THIS IS CANCELLED/ENDING AT 12?
>>
>>90367600
Yes. But there's still a crossover special incoming:
>>90365321
>>90366635
>Welcome to the twenty-fifth century, where the Earth is a polluted postindustrial nightmare, most animals are extinct and reptilian aliens are invading cities across the planet! In their time of need, the world’s citizens turn to the time-traveling Booster Gold to save the day. To learn why these aliens are seeking revenge, Booster dives deep into the prehistoric past to see what happened the last time they hit the planet. In this bygone era, Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble must help Booster learn the truth and return to his own time armed with the information that will bring down the invaders—if Booster can convince them to help him. No problem—we all know how persuasive Booster can be, right? Right?!

I can't find the solicitation and news piece that says it's over. Am I just stupid? Tried 8 or 9 google searches

Search for the writer's interview about his upcoming Snaglepuss comic, he confirms it there.

We do it just as well and asking for less, what did you expected, HOMO sapiens?.
>>
I never expected to get sound life advice from the troubles of a sitcom character in a comic adaptation
>>
damn this comic is good why the fuck i never heard of this?
>>
>>90334834

Fucking kek, how did I not see it coming.

I am legitimately super sad this comic is ending. Where will I get this kind of wittiness now?
>>
Is ending at 12 planned or did it get cancelled?
>>
Goddamn, I am really going to miss Steve Pugh's art in this.
>>
>>90371545
It's not the same, but Yang is killing it over in New Superman right now and may be ramping up to something pretty amazing in the next issue. Also, his understanding of Superman's powers as they relate to Chi is extraordinary.
>>
>>90365321
I... whu... fucking WHAT?

I... I didn't know that I could be as confused and excited by a thing at the same time. Holy shit.

It sells like shit, so probably cancelled but they would have known that far ahead enough that it's likely being accounted for.

>>90371545

Russell will be getting another book about Snagglepuss.
