fffff…. OK, I try to reserve some of my judgement because my degree effectively ruins comics for me forever, but.
I’m just a bit… sad that the scripts follow such a pattern? It’s common for a lot of short story comics because it’s a nice, short story arc, easily completed. But it sums up to…
A drags B(and C) into zany hijinks!
A is very weird, B(and C) observe that, but tolerate it.
B(and C, or more) crack, react angrily, and call A out on being weird. They exit stage left, leaving A behind in comical solitude, acknowledging their weirdness.
It isn’t in all of them necessarily! And even ones that sorta follow that pattern can be really enjoyable! But it is weird to see them all lined up? Like “…and they’re walking off again…” That said, the art is so enjoyable I will put up with anything and refresh at midnight every night happily. I’M JUST SO PROUD OF MY FRIENDS…. /lies in a ditch
Sometime i feel like I’m sounding like an edgy rebel by expressing my opinion on PXS but I actually am being genuine and honest about it and I think its something that the staff really has to listen to some of us on?
See, the art is wonderful, I love the people who are helping in it, much kudos to them. But they have nothing to do with the writing of the comics they’re drawing/coloring, so it’s nothing against them.
The writing is just….so repetitive like you said, same pattern, same jokes, same characters.
It seems the popular thing right now is Terezi licking things, we’re back to 2012 with these jokes, soon it will be bucket jokes all over again.
What I thought PXS would be about was comics on characters who didn’t get much of a chance in canon, that they would be touched back upon again. And hello, the name has PARADOX in it, I was expecting alternate timeline stories. Like dreambubble things too, ya feel? Dead characters doing things, or ships that were never talked about or shown in canon getting a chance in PXS.
Instead, we’re getting comics of the same characters that we left off of with in canon, cause they’re the favorites and doing just the same things over and over again.
I legit can’t get excited over anything even if the art is pretty.
