I was just thinking the same thing about how it is a good discussion.
It seems people are excited to see so much effort put into issues we care about and I think that shows how poorly represented this subject matter is.
And I see why people are excited about it and the potential something like this has. This is also why I see so much potential in the medium of comics
and why I think we should really try to accomplish as much as we can with it.
I think the OP is on the right track here.. but we can push it much further and do much more with it. There were some images I saw in the original
post that were done well and didn't have the comedic angle and I think if that approach was used throughout great things could be accomplished.
What if when we made these comics we simply approached it as if we were making legitimate documentary films.. just in the form of comics? I think
then we could achieve our goal.
Very insightfull and well thought of you..
It makes me question though, how much we are unorganized.
You're letter just reminds me of something I see over and over again. We have no organization. These "theory's" in which we speak of are so "all
over the place" that we CANNOT unite under one common principal.
For example, (you read me vs. "other guy") we can agree that we probably agree on the situation of the world today. But if you look deeper, you will
probably find that his "theory's" based on "his evidence" stray far from my "theorys" and "my evidence".
You're message is well excepted and well thought out. But you, me, and my friend whom i've debated have NO organization whatsoever. We three share
one thing right now, ambition.
Does it really matter if I thought one spot in the comic was well written, and another found it to be humorous when a third person found it to be
offending because he felt his beliefs were offended? Can this be corrected? No... Never... Reality is in the eye of the beholder.
All we can do in my view, is take something as wonderful as this medium that's been used and support it and hope it is well received and makes people
think.... Being overly critical does nothing but cause confusions. And that's what I think this all boils down too. Us being overly critical.
