Playticket

I have a feeling we're going to be needing a thread for this one.

More specifically, the cover art is AWESOME.

Re: Yes.

Yeah, I find myself in agreement. When Michelle is doing her speech, as readers, we have no idea how valid anything she says is; we don't know how powerful LB is, and I'm willing to bet neither does she. Furthermore, I'm not a fan of her logic. Louis, I know being temporarily ambiguous is good and a...

Re: Yes.

It's mildly ambiguous, it certainly draws some dark parallels, and no one can argue it's standoffish. I like this move, mostly because I'm not sure we're supposed to know Carter is doing the right thing here; it looks more like we're supposed to wonder. Choosing to sacrifice your closest crime fight...

Re: Yes.

It will certainly be interesting to see how this resolves, that's for sure. Lightbringer fits the Paladin stereotype very well, as Al says. But I like the concept of a Paladin who's moral compass puts him in a controversial light. I won't mind if Lighbringer ultimately finds a way to make things rig...

Re: "The Ends don't Justify the Means." [12/9/2009]

Wait, what? Lightbringer doesn't want to be chained to a government organization, so he asks to join a different government organization? At least with the FBI he would be above the mayor, so she couldn't do much to him? Seriously, what the hell just happened?

Re: "The Ends don't Justify the Means." [12/9/2009]

I dunno. The lack of real law in the city makes Lightbringer more dangerous, if anything. Lightbringer just being there is poking holes in the little government structure that exists in Pharos. The Mayor has a lot more authority to lose, because there's a lot less to go around.

Re: "The Ends don't Justify the Means." [12/9/2009]

To her credit, they Mayor's in a bind. She doesn't know LB will be the perfect White Knight; if he gets the public on his side doing questionable things then he's tearing the government authority and infrastructure apart. Real life effective superheroes could get messy as all hell; there's just no c...

Re: It's about time...

You're probably correct. As an English Major, I've learned it's possible to do that for most, if not all, well constructed villains. White Death interests me because of all the revision that's gone into her and how long her story has been delayed.

Interesting costume; I'm still not sure what to make of it yet. Aside from Lightbringer's costume, where did the inspiration for it come from? Rocco's art is fantastic, by the way. The way he meshed his style with what the comic already was is utterly fantastic. Can't wait for the day he does Darkbr...

This is partially true. Yes, the fact that they sympathized with him helped, but the larger reality was that he was able to mobilize a massive amount of civil unrest within the population. Morality has nothing to do with noticing that the vast majority of the population is very angry and only a thre...

Re: Chipping in some of my own bloody opinions...

It's not extreme at all. All villains come from somewhere, and most people think themselves completely justified in the things they've done. It's also not extreme to say that the vast majority of heroes walk the same path. Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and Frederick Douglass all had to deal with incre...

I suppose that's true, although it's also true for conventional warfare as well. Whether you're fighting with guns or words, you can't accomplish something with manpower.

Re: Chipping in some of my own bloody opinions...

Technically speaking, if the Pacifist movement has accomplished it's goal in the meantime, the fact that they're all dead is insignificant. In any case, Gandhi was survived by many people who believed in his cause, so why are you raising this point? To kill off all of Gandhi's movement, you'd have h...

Re: Chipping in some of my own bloody opinions...

Nevertheless, it completely undermines respect for both Gandhi and the Allied forces. At the most basic level, by simply comparing the ideologies, one ignores the individual planning, creativity, and adaptability employed by all players involved, not to mention a huge amount of luck. Ghandhi would n...

Re: Chipping in some of my own bloody opinions...

A few clarifications: It's easy to say, without any facts, figures, or actual understanding of Pacifism, to say that Gandhi wouldn't have been able to stand up to Hitler. The very notion of the argument is utterly useless, as Gandhi and Hitler both existed in very specific times and places that are ...

Re: Redo the Old Ones?

I have to be honest Lewis, you've grown by leaps and bounds on this comic, but you're first strips are very difficult to read through, because of the artwork and some story elements that you've grown out of. For me, it's a tossup, because I'd really like to see more new updates, rather than old ones...

Re: Silly question....

I would suggest going back and watching the Penny Arcade TV segments they have in the blog on how the comic is made. Furthermore, coloring is part of the style, and it's illogical not to consider that when making an argument about update times.
