Old one was autosaging.

Anyone into the new Valiant comics? XO and Bloodshot are pretty great action books, if not two of the better titles out there. Quantum and Woody is hilarious as always. Archer and Armstrong is the writer of Incredible Herc doing another Incredible Herc (if you've read the Herc run you'll love this). Shadowman is good too (not the best but I'm going to give it a chance). Haven't read Harbinger yet. Overall they're putting out stuff better than some of the shit the big two puts out.

Also Furturama is cancelled but Brickleberry is still going. The fuck?

So, what did everyone think of the Futurama finale?

Personally I liked it quite a bit, it wasn't perfect but definitely a very solid episode, and a good one to end the series on.
>> No. 216127
The whole season was pretty good. Zoidberg got to be happy, Bender got a partner in crime, Fry finally got to marry Leela and see his family one last time.
>> No. 216175
It felt nice and conclusive. At least as a relational point between Fry and Leela stand. The last few episodes seemed to give happy endings to everyone else so I'm content.

The 7th season was pretty good, but I hated the 6th. For reasons I'm not totally sure.

The Thundercats pilot absolutely knocked it out of the park. The problem was it then plonked itself down on home base, crossed its arms and didn't budge an inch for the rest of the game. It has to be one of the most inexplicable examples of a promising new series shooting itself in the head I have ever seen. It promised us Escaflowne and gave us...well...Thundercats.
>> No. 216243
Thundercats had some pretty nifty ideas going on, even beyond the great pilot two-parter, but it was like the writers simply didn't have any idea to what to do with the story.

>> No. 216422
Two childhood friends reunite after over a decade of not seeing each other. They find out their fathers are both dead in the same accident. Thinking it suspicious, they investigate and are caught in an accident that gives them superpowers. They're also bonded, if they don't touch their bracelets every 24 hours, they die. Quantity is a black yuppie (think Carlton from Fresh Prince except he joined the military after high school) and Woody is your average college drop out slacker. They don't get along all the time. One of my favorite moments from the old book is them climbing a building Batman style. Woody gets sick and hurls into an aconditioner. Then Quantum falls and Woody tries to hold on to the rope with his legs, getting rope burns on his thighs, so he can grab his friend. Cue the police showing up and mistaking them for a homosexual couple trying to commit suicide.

I'm still jealous CN Mexico did an El Santo miniseries.

I'm also sad we will never see collections of Central and South American comics.

For instance the Argentine Fantomas was a Lupin the 3rd style superthief who lived on Dinosaur Island. He had twelve female bodyguards named after the Zodiac who ran around in bikinis. He got his Kirby style tech from a scientist who looked like Karl Marx. Finally he wore a top hat and tuxedo coat over his spandex costume.

Dr. Eggman won’t be the only foe they’ll face, however, with “a rogue’s gallery of enemies — some familiar to Sonic fans and some brand-new” will also stir up trouble for the show’s heroes.

Not that bad since people have seen the first part of that episode for months and maybe missed that it was going to be two episodes. Should this show have a thread for general talk and such since /co/ is being its usual shitpile self about this show?
>> No. 218516
I hate to be negative and "no fun allowed", but I sorta agree with this. I watched both Bee and Puppycat and Steven Universe which are both really popular right now and I just...
I'm really tired of that style of humour/delivery/art style. Steven Universe at least has more interesting side characters (Garnet especially is great), but the bumbling, loud, "awkward" lead just ruins it for me. I honestly hope Bee and Puppycat doesn't move forward though. The entire show feels like it's pandering to the "lol so awkward!!! i can't talk to people!!!" tumblr crowd.
>> No. 218517

They still have a point, though. All that seems to be coming out of CN as of late are "LOLrandom" shows or shows trying to ape the success of Adventure Time. Where are the new Dexter's Labs or Powerpuff Girls or SamuraI Jacks -- shows that had a spark of creativity and originality while still offering strong narratives, experimentation with styles and presentation, and humor that didn't rely on "OH MY GOD SO RANDOM" bullshittery?

Oh, right. CN shuffled those shows off to the Death Slots of either Friday night or Saturday Morning and said "fuck this noise".

Didn't mean to list off his shows specifically; it's just that those three came to mind as some of the best stuff CN produced in its heyday.


I'm not one for "ZOMG NOSTALGIA RIPOFF", trust me on that. I'd just like to see CN expand its horizons a little further than it has in recent years. Stuff like the Thundercats pilot (shame about the rest of that shitstorm), Green Lantern, and Young Justice showed a lot of promise -- but CN stopped promoting it after a couple of weeks and shoved them into timeslots where their ratings deaths were all but assured.

I like Adventure Time, and I even kinda dig Regular Show (when I can catch it). But not every show out there needs to be an Adventure Time wannabe or a 15-minute LOLSORANDOM show -- just the same as shows don't need to be another Dexter's Lab, Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack, Avatar/Korra, Gravity Falls, or whatever.

I want originality and uniqueness (such as it is these days), but I don't like the trends shaping the animated shows coming out as of late. I'd like to see CN try something a little different AND give that "something different" a better chance than "oh hey the ratings went down a half-point after the first two episodes SATURDAY MORNING WITH NO ADS IT IS".

I'm not, That's my opinion on others opinions, I think it's being way too critical. And pre-emptive, SUPER pre-emptive.

A whole three!?! When will the deluge of these shows with distinct simplified arts styles end?!? Dear God I if only Gendy was here (The joke is Gendy's shows had similar but distinct forms of art and very similar comedic styles much like these shows and people used to complain about them and now I feel like I'll be having this conversation again in 10 years over entirely different shows)
>> No. 218542
I mean action cartoons or something a little more serious at least. Ben 10 Omniverse is about the only thing not on hiatus like that.

Scooby Doo Mystery Inc was another good example. It got to finish its story thankfully.

At least none of the shows airing are as bad as Johnny Test though.
>> No. 218544

>I mean action cartoons or something a little more serious at least.

THIS. There's a troubling lack of quality action-oriented cartoons these days. Then again, I'm a bit spoiled after '80s Saturday Mornings and '90s Afternoons with Toonami, so…yeah.
>> No. 218545
I'll agree to some action cartoons being nice, I super miss Symbionic Titan but when that was on I had arguments EXACTLY like this about it not being different or new enough and being boring and slowly paced, remember "Yup just as boring as Samurai Jack."?

Which is one of the reasons I LIKE Adventure Time, bee and Puppycat and Steven Universe, they strike a nice balance between comedy and action or at least I hope they do.

I'm just tired of seeing people complain about shows I like when the chances are already so stacked against them EVER getting as far as a second season and then listening to people bellyache they got cancelled especially when like on 4chan /co/ 90% of the people who complained about it at first are the ones complaining it got cancelled.

I mean FUCK, Bee & Puppycat doesn't even fucking really exist yet.
>> No. 218546

I'm not really complaining about specific shows, so much as I'm complaining about specific trends surrounding TV cartoons in general. I've never even see the Bee & Puppycat pilot.

Pretty much the only specific cartoon I'd complain about these days is that shitpit called Johnny Test.
>> No. 218547
That is such an entirely different can of worms it gives me a migraine.

Johnny Test does as well as it does because it's produced for 6 cents and draws Sponge Bob numbers, it's a necessary evil at this point since anything paired front or back pulls better numbers.

And for the life of me I can't figure out why, but it does.

So don't take potshots are cartoons who are trying to give us something decent instead of shitpiles like Johnny Test.
>> No. 218549
It's not that I find Steven or Puppycat bad (although goddamn am I tired of people spamming that kickstarter on /co/) I just find them to be similar to Adventure Time a little too much. That's all.

I'd just like some more action cartoons. Like Earth's Mightiest Heroes or Green Lantern. Or Sym Bionic Titan. Just something different.
>> No. 218553
Help me understand why you think they are similar then, radically different settings, characters and to a lesser extent art styles.

I could maybe get you on comedic, dumb and weird protagonists if Steven wasn't super fucking useful and Bee more socially maladjusted than stupid.

Also, it's super fucking irritating that two of your very good examples were killed because of vastly inferior takes and/or a lack of toys. So we are completely on the same page there.
>> No. 218554
Not that other anon so I can't speak for them, but it's not a matter of the leads being dumb. Both Bee and Steven play into the socially awkward, loud, oblivious lead trope that's popular right now, and all the humour revolves around them being goofy and loud and OH NO WHY CAN'T I DO ANYTHING ):

The soft, bubbly art is also a commonality and I'm super tired of that art style being basically all anyone sees now.

That being said, Steven's supporting cast are really, really great. I'm hoping that they get into their groove a bit more and pull through because I think it has the potential to be great. Right now though? Not impressed.
>> No. 218555

Steven doesn't even remotely play into that, He's saved the Gems in every episode WITHOUT his powers, in most cases due to quick thinking.

Bee's problem was that she wasn't good at anything besides ripping monsters apart with her bare hands and teeth.

So I dunno, I don't really buy them as that and I like all three artstyles though Steven Universe's was WAAAAAAAAY too detailed so they obviously had to dial it back and while that sucks at least we GET the series.
>> No. 218558
I think the issue here is that 2 minutes of surprising competence (if you can even call it that. Bee gnawing on a monster and flailing her sword around doesn't count as being good at ripping them apart) doesn't erase an entire episode of socially awkward, bumbling around.

The art change in Steven Universe doesn't help that people already think they look similar. It was probably ridiculously expensive before though so. shrugs.

Again, I think Steven Universe has a better base than Bee and Puppycat; it definitely has potential. I would be very disappointed if it doesn't pick up in a few eps.
>> No. 218562
I liked Steven Universe a lot I just wish they didn't change the art style because now everyone is crying Adventure Time rip off which is really stupid because I think SU is a lot better animated than any of the recent AT eps. Seriously the lighting and colors on this show look amazing.

Except it wasn't written with a second season in mind. Any criticism of the show should take in mind that both season 1 and 2 were written under the assumption there wouldn't be another season. And then another season got a green light after it was too late to make changes. Welp.

They knew there was going to be a second season halfway through the first one. There is no reason they could have just not included the last 30 seconds of the season finale.

Huh. Maybe this'll lead to Toonami getting Saturdays all to itself, given the extra half-hour it's picking up when Space Dandy starts airing.

While I'm miffed about Cleveland going first and turning the pre-midnight Adult Swim into a two hour block of Seth MacFarlane bullshittery, I've seen KOTH in full at least five times since Adult Swim picked it up.

If the hero is no longer screwing up and they're not in the final climax of the story, the writer has failed to pace their story correctly. Hell, even if they ARE in the final climax they may have bungled the writing, by making the hero superhuman and therefore boring.
>> No. 220615
You're so full of shit

A hero is allowed to be competent at what they do, if the only way you can continue a story is to make the hero constantly incompetent at every turn and it isn't some sort of comedy you are most likely making some badly written rubbish.
>> No. 220617
The hero is allowed to be competent on occasion, but if the hero is not messing up about as often as they are showing competence, the character falls into Boring Invincible Hero syndrome, and there's no reason to continue reading/watching/whatever. At that point the only way to challenge the hero is to go Shonen Jump style and just keep introducing bad guys who are one level higher than the previous one.

...or to put him into situations that he's NOT competent at, but that's just justifying having the character screw up again. If you have Aquaman fighting in a desert, he's going to screw up a lot until he can figure out a way to use his strengths even in such a foreign environment. That's a much more interesting story than "Aquaman vs. the Kraken" because it's about someone learning and growing as a person.

People identify most with other people who are recognizably human. And the defining trait of the human condition is fallibility. A hero who doesn't fail, fail often, and fail hard is just a power fantasy--not any sort of respectable literary figure.
>> No. 220618
Competence isn't the same thing as never failing at a situation.

Also you are making false assumptions, power levels aren't the only form of challenge in a situation.

You're going to have to give examples of something challenging a hero that isn't either them being out of their depth or fucking up due to inexperience or incompetence.

>Wired and Buzzfeed report that LaBeouf's film, which IndieWire describes as being about "the inward struggles of a veteran film critic," closely resembles the plot and dialogue of Clowes' Justin M. Damiano, which is also about a conflicted film critic.

>For example, star Jim Gaffigan's opening narration replicates the text that begins Clowes' comic: "A critic is a warrior, and each of us on the battlefield have the means to glorify or demolish (whether a film, a career, or an entire philosophy) by influencing perception in ways that if heartfelt and truthful, can have far-reaching repercussions."

>LaBeouf posted the 12-minute film on his website on Monday, but it's since been taken down. (BuzzFeed still had a version up Monday night.) Other versions that were shared elsewhere online are now password-protected.

>"The first I ever heard of the film was this morning when someone sent me a link. I've never spoken to or met Mr. LaBeouf ... I actually can't imagine what was going through his mind," Clowes told BuzzFeed.

>"I almost spit out my coffee when I realized he lifted the script, word for word," Eric Reynolds of Fantagraphics, the publisher of Clowes' comics, told Wired.

>Clowes' name is absent from the credits for HowardCantour.com -- it's simply described as "A Film By Shia LaBeouf," according to Wired.

See, this is why all animated flicks being required to compete only in a single Best Animated Film category is bullshit. Frozen had a lot of really well done stuff in it that deserves recognition, but its visuals (while good) were not especially noteworthy, which is a category that Ghibli works shine in.

I understand that there just generally aren't enough animated films each year to justify a "Best Animation / Art Direction in an Animated Film" category separate from the "Best Animated Film" category, but that's a damned shame.

For an example of what I mean, look at Ponyo. I don't remember what came out that year, but Ponyo probably does not deserve an oscar for Best Animated Film for whichever year it was. But I am pretty god damned certain it deserved one for Best Animation and Art Direction whichever year it came out.

These days, there's an alarming trend wherein writers make a supervillain tailor made for a single story arc, make them sooooooo powerful and impressive, and then they're beat and no one ever uses them because they were so grafted to that particular story (ex. most of the new New52 villains).

What's the key to creating bad guys that can actually be recurring foes to the heroes without making those clashes seem forced?

I mean, there are tons of supervillains who are tied to a gimmick, yet they still keep getting used over and over.
>> No. 222394
Have the antagonist closely related to the protagonist somehow?
>> No. 222396
It mostly has to do with how little "the status quo" matters in comics nowadays. When there was a steady status quo, recurring villains made sense because they got beat, went away for a while, then came back and fought a hero that was more or less the same. Nowadays every story has to be an earthshattering event that utterly reshapes the hero, and that means that new villains, written to fit that kind of story, are essentially transformative and situational. If they show up and kill the hero's wife or blow up his city, they can't exactly do that twice, the wife or city are already gone.

I think it might be brilliant.

Wait until Marvel exhausts all their big properties, finishes its Avengers trilogy, parts ways with RDJ, and cancels Agents of SHIELD.

And while they're resting their laurels and the public is amped up for more superheroes, whammo! A DC film released every year with a shared universe! And to top it all off, they'll be made after taking notes on how Marvel's were such a success. Marvel takes all the risks while DC gets all the benefits.

I think they might have timed this. Why compete when you can dominate?
