The artwork may have been an improvement overtime during the *webcomic's run*, but this still bugs me because the look of the characters today are what I consider a huge step back from, say, her artwork from 2005-2006. That's when I thought everybody looked like they were their proper sizes, and not like really short-looking adults. Seriously, Fagan doesn't look 5'11" at all. In fact, Silas Bade and Lupo in the uploaded picture looks nothing like 5'11" and 6'5" respectively.
Again, that's a point I don't think I've found anyone believing, much less caring about, everytime I bring it up. D'oh well, I suppose.
>As for the drama, I don't dislike it, maybe because I have way to much "funny" in my webcomic selection. The characters are flawed psychologically in a few manner of ways which I think adds to them, I don't get the "I'm the best character ever" vibe from any of them, or some are just to much in the background.
I... Yeah. I think you need more serious or adventure in your comic library, even the non-webcomic ones.
As for the psychological flaws "adding to character", I'm not really feeling that at all. Like I said, it makes them feel really synthetic, to the point where the flaws become gimmicks as opposed to something that gives them actual character depth, and this was especially egregious in the character biographies Amanda made almost a decade ago, where most of the characters all went through absolute hell and became edgyyyyyyyyyy as fuck.
Too bad I don't have any "good" examples to try to enforce that point of mine. :|
I think this comic has room for growth, but my grievances hold it back pretty dearly.
