Has anyone else noticed that level of character and story development in AG far exceeds the actual strip count?
What I mean by this is that the comic seems scripted, thought out and plotted out far more than pretty much anything else I read online except perhaps schlock mercenary.
Taylor's doing Sci-Fi, so he has a whole universe to script and deal with, obviously there's a lot to do there; but Gothia's doing goth-romance fantasy, and typically this is an invitation to do a lot less heavy lifting in the scripting and planning department.
AG always feels like real people reacting...as in carefully thought out, character backgrounds are layered and the whole thing feels and is deep. If you just look at the single-panel group portraits you can tell some thinking is going on outside the script.
