So, What is this Paranatural thing anyway?

Well, in the words of author Zack Morrison:

quote:

Paranatural is best described as “X-Men meets Ghostbusters except everyone’s twelve.” It’s a comedy/action comic about a group of middle school kids with ghostly superpowers fighting evil spirits and investigating paranormal activity in their hometown. Paranatural began in the summer of 2010 and, as of 2012, updates Fridays.

Lots of comics say they are "comedy/action". What makes it special?

Don't just rely in me, let's see what goons have to say.

That good enough?


After a year of semi-erratic comic postings (including a break for almost a month to build an ark) we finally have a set update schedule! He has been great at keeping it up so far, even in the face of family holidays or computer mishaps. It may seem slow at times, but he's a busy guy.

The wait for updates was lessened, finally, as Paranatural is now updating Mondays Tuesdays in addition to fridays, making for twice the goodness each week!

I can forgive the sparse updates, though. Zack Morrison is, like, 19 or something and he's focusing on school so good on him. Also, I tweeted at him a few times and he's a big ol' sweety.

Paranatural blew my mind so hard my hair dye liquified.

It has powers. Super powers. Superfly powers. There is nothing this comic can't do.

Also it reminds me of Earthbound and that's never bad.

gently caress yeah, this thread is just what is needed.

Seriously, Paranatural absolutely owns. Good plotting, great art, amazing dialogue, and the creator is like fresh out of high school.

I don't like using the word "talent" because it implies that the person didn't bust their rear end for the level of skill that they have. But this good, this young? That's a drat gift, and I am really looking forward to what he will crank out after he has had those years of work to hone his skill.

From my point of view, the Jedi are evil. But what really is... evil?

I agree. To the extent that the webcomic business is pretty much actually the shirt business, I think there's a lot of profit potential here. Somebody get him on the line with Topatoco.

Anyways, the thread title should read Paranatural: A Primer on Avant-Garde Bullying to better reflect the main/best content in the comic.

I'm undecided if Suzy is treating Max like that because she's driven by her journalistic desire to shine a light on the dark in the corners of the school... Or because she's trying to hide a crush on him.

Probably both.

Edit: Also, the person who deserves more love is Jeff.

in my pope game,


It's probably worth noting that the comic starts a little slow; the first few pages in particular have very little of the charm that the rest of the comic oozes, both from the art and the writing. By halfway through the first chapter it's in full swing, though, and from then on it's hard to put down!

Basically it is a Good Comic and I want more. All the time. Zack draw the comic.
