i was really bummed how in the world war ii story the one guy in the platoon giving him poo poo did it because he hates flying people and not because he was racist

like they didnt need to use the n word but there were plenty of good euphemisms and nobody questioned his backstory of being a marine even though black people couldnt join back then

yeah that's like the Teen Titans episode on racism where some alien dude keeps calling Starfire some word and she confides in Cyborg that the word means "worthless". She asks him if he knows what it's like to be judged on your appearance he (a black dude) goes "of course I do....I'm a robot"

jesus god in heaven that's a poo poo-ton of internal monologuing going on here. there's got to be a more effective way for the writer to convey what he wants cap to say without piling up text boxes all over unrelated action scenes. give me three uninterrupted action shots and then "i really like beer" on the fourth any day of the week

Coates is incredibly bad at comics, not just his politics but the actual craft

listen to the way theyre laughing at him they think the whole thing is a joke im convinced hamilton is one of those andrew lloyd weber situations where nobody had the heart to tell lin manuel miranda that his idea was incredibly stupid


oh that sounds good her video about beauty and the beast was great but i never tried watching anything else she did because youtube kept trying to push me on to her video about how brilliant guardians of the galaxy 2 was and i was just uh lets quit while were ahead here

that one is actually good, but if you're still scared it might change your mind about guardians 2 there are a bunch of others that are well worth a watch - since we're on the subject of musical theater, her dissection of Rent (which tangentially touches on Hamilton) is well worth a watch

but yes, Lindsay is a really good critic (and twitter follow), who definitely is happy wallowing in trash

love too hold my coffee cup by the handle with only my first two fingers, the way completely normal humans do

did they interrupt him at a starbucks drinking from a comically small espresso shooter or what

also based on the size of his hand relative to the size of his face, there's some implied foreshortening going on and he's holding his arm out almost fully extended. you know, the completely normal way you drink coffee

TNC is a case study for why black pessimism is mostly motivated by resentment that black men will never be full partners in the white bourgeois project. So they're stuck in a sort of nightmarish superposition where they've internalized liberalism's premises while resenting its actually existing politics.

Like that scene isn't great but immortal hulk is the best book marvel has right now by a mile

The next issue is about how hulk survives to the end of the universe and becomes the next Galactus

Also the whole book is about how hulk is basically the Antichrist for a hell dimension that touches the world vis gamma rays and there's this whole Kabbalah thing going on and it's just great

Yeah I've generally heard that TNC is really good politically but this comic is casting doubt.

I have to hold some coffee cups with two fingers, and Iím not a musclebound giant . espresso cups would be one finger except you kind of have to pinch them. if the handle is full-length then I can fit three on without squishing my hand, but that cup is drawn to have a partial handle.

just seems like a weird aspect to bring up.

I read 500 issues of 2000ad last year, do you think those were all good

I have to know something to tell you why it's bad properly, and I can't know a comic without reading it. Not really anyway. It's why I don't delve too deep into talking about ie walking dead or spawn or whatever, I haven't read enough to talk about them knowledgably

Also this comic is astoundingly bad and I have to see how much worse it gets

I clipped out cap going "how can I fight my own government" despite a history of doing just that and Natasha Badski reminding everyone that Russia controls the president
