You guys. I don't know what it is I am feeling but it is a great great time to be a comic creator that sometimes, I get a little worked up when I see people moping about stuff. Like,we have so MUCH representation in INDIE stuff. Not many people are into mainstream, well, the crowd might be glued due to the effects. But guys!
People talking more and more about abuse and HOW it is NOT okay. (Imma looking at a lot of you guys from the old school; titles from certain series > . Gawsh, the art was really good but the relationships and skewed perspectives made me wince and realise that despite the rose tinted glasses, the past...wasn't that rosy) haha
Stuff can be funny AND not abusive.In my opinion, you can have a main lead who is abusive BUT unless it is very well done as in you want a villianious lead who never realizes or refuses to admit his/her mistakes , I think you need an ally or someone to call him out on the behaviour.
Any how! I do get it and love that the age of cookie cutter perfect and outright asshole is over . Cuz now we get to explore and see more reprsentation in comics!
And no.FYI. Wah wah boohoo does not cut it anymore for a character's abusive actions. You need to make said character LEARN and atone for his/her/their actions!!!
People are reading this need to learn that whatever shit they are doing is not acceptable or whatever shit they are enduring or endured is NOT acceptable!
So yeah, things could be better, not gonna say everything is butterflies n' daisies but hey! Things aren't all that gloom and doom. I bought two VERY expensive comics as a gift to myself from Kinokuniya that talk alot about represnation, female sexuality, and also feature extensively in themes of abuse!
And said books both have girls of ALL kind of body types! plump cute girls! Bara cute girls! Skinny cute girls. OLD and cute girls!
i love the place where comics are heading to now. Cuz that's wat we gonna do. It's a hard hard job and we comic creators are gunna rattle some cages and hackles of some stick inna muds just for creating stories for even existing, it's a hard and thankless job. ((For the most part, THANK YOU to you awesome friends who support the ideals and dreams of our stories! You guys rule and drown out all the boos and cuss words and make it worth it!!! <3333))
But it's a start! 0w0
