ARCHIVE - BIO PAGES - TROPES?

PISCES BIO PAGE ~ IMANI BIO PAGE ~ RAZOR BIO PAGE


More Zodiac! Any questions? I'll try to answer.

Next week: The board members & Ghoul

Y'know, I've been looking back at the older pages and I think I may have lost some people by stringing out this combat for so long. I seem to have lost some people that commented on almost every page. Is it me? I'm not as communicative as I used to be and I only update once a week. Still trying to think of what I can do to improve the comic. I have it scripted out quite a bit further but I'd like to hear your ideas.

Enjoy!

Pisces, you scared me O.O

As for improvements, I'd say the action and humor are great and while there is enough drama happening, you keep the comic from getting too dark and serious. The only remark I would have is that I feel there could be a bit more story. Right now it's been more or less good guys vs bad guys, and while all characters get focus and development, there isn't a big solid plot going on yet. It feels more like a bunch of subplots, to me at least. I gotta say that the bit with Ghoul and Ramses is an interesting development, so I'm curious about that :)

OK. I can see your points. Superheroes can devolve into a lot of good guys vs bad guys with little story. It's hard to delve into that while action is happening which is why I tried to set up a few in the beginning. We will get back to it I promise

Leo is not there to separate the combatants and the witnesses to Pisces' metamorphosis do not seem able to intervene anyhow. Violence is erupting everywhere.

Yes! She is scared! :fear: She scratched their heads over what the back of Pisces, and now will have your back scraped by him. And how the smell of fear which it emanates, added to the public around, only tends to make Pisces Wilder, razor will have hands full. Imagine if we'll see Pisces show what are your real resources in combat, including the healing factor and bad mood.

Did you ever read Clark Ashton Smith's mythos yarn "The Testament of Athammaus" ? It's pivotal in the Commoriom myth-cycle, relating why Commoriom was abandoned and Uzuldaroum became the new capital. Under the strain of his repeated decapitations, the cruel bandit Knygathim Zhaum, who had more than a little blood of the Great Old Ones, began reverting to the worse- than- formlessness of his NONterrestrial forebears.

I stated the above because this guy has been impaled through the heart TWICE now, and he seems to be - becoming wholly monster now !

Lovecraft created the Cthulhu Mythos, a series of stories, perhaps by self-plagiarism, involving a cosmos of total meaninglessness and where man is an ephemeral species of no significance. The cosmos is hostile to all sanity, order and purpose. Death, destruction, hideousness..... There were intelligent races before man and there will be such after the death of the last man ! And they are not even remotely human in any way. They would see us as food or enemies !

Lovecraft invited his friends to contribute stories to his mythos, and even subsumed others into his own (references to events and characters in other horror writers' stories). He also reworked the plots of many stories he ghost-wrote for others to add his own characters and monsters.

So Lovecraft was joined by Clark Ashton Smith, Robert E. Howard, Frank Belknap Long, Robert Bloch, August Derleth, Kuttner, .... BUT when Lovecraft died, the fun went out of it and only Derleth continued in that vein, typing out mythos stories to help along WEIRD TALES which had passed its heyday....

Today, a new generation of writers, Ramsey Campbell, Brian Lumley, Lin Carter, ... have taken up the pen, but after that, the mythos became more of fan fiction. I reached my saturation point years ago, and just stick with the stories I already have.

Smith himself stopped writing prose when his parents AND Lovecraft died.

Aquarius transforming more than ever now ! I wonder how far he can morph before losing his humanity entirely ! Everytime my Sephira did something on the level of deity, she lost more of her former humanity.

Razor's armor form shows fear and shock !

He is always worrying about losing himself to the intoxicating effects of fear. It's one of the things that keeps him from enjoying himself.

I'm lookin forward to what happens between Gemini and Slaver, or even what Aquarius is up to. But right now it seems the fight seems pretty even out. Its nice to read a comic that has real depth, rather than brightly coloured tights in Marvel.


I suppose if you wanted more time to work on the weekly comic, you could always consider withholding additional artworks, but it seems a little far fetched.

It is actually. For a lot of my characters, I originally had it where their masks did not show their eyes. Similar to Batman where you can't see his pupils. However, this so greatly limited their expressions that I decided to change that idea. Even Sadge makes some things difficult with having only one eye so I have to be careful which side of her I show.

The problem is that you have too many things going on at the same time... So, obviously, with the slower updates (though it seems that you're back to 1 update per week - you were slower for a small period if I recall, but well, IRL first, no one can blame you for that) and this, people may lose interest. Though this is just an hypothesis.
