Comic Critique Saturday: Destress!

I haven’t posted one of these here in awhile phew!

This week a long promised one, DeStress.

First Impression:

Well I thought the style was neat right from the get-go. I remember doing a half-assed reading of it the first time through. In that reading I found myself disliking Razmarus a lot because on that cursory read I assumed each action he did to a soul was something negative on the re-read I discovered he doesn’t do NOTHING but bad things. I also found the world very complicated but on a re-read I was thinking, “What the fuck it wasn’t THAT complicated did I NOT READ half the dialog or something?”

Comic Critique Saturdays: 14 Nights

14 nights

Didn’t have many anon asks this week so here have a back up Comic Critique I made!  It’s another comic I love to death.  So sorry if you were wishing for more of my angry sputtering.

First Impression: I believe I came across a project wonderful ad for on the starfigher website for 14 nights. I clicked on it because I was in ~bad webcomic zone~ and thought this would fit. I remember reading through the beginning and thinking, “Wait a sec the overweight guy with a disability is the main character? HELL TO THE YES!”

Comic Critique Saturday: Grayscale!

My sugar snacks with the delicious hate-filled centers! This week it’s Grayscale!

I’m doing something a bit different this Saturday for the comic critique Saturday. I haven’t really had much time to write out full big reviews, and I’m lazy as all hell. So instead of a full written review, I did just the audio review. The audio review is pretty much off the cuff, with no notes, and I do a bit of rambling, but I think I bring up half decent points and perhaps YOU’LL BE ENTERTAINED! The whole deal is about 25 minutes long.

The whole review!
People seemed to like the audio rambles I did of Kaito Shuno so maybe you’ll like these too.

Because these are off the cuff, the thoughts aren’t as complete and thought out as the ones in my previous reviews obviously. I want to say, OVERALL grayscale isn’t bad. Here’s a very quick rundown.

Art:

Anime influenced, but masculine. Pretty good for the most part with some hitches in perspectives, and anatomy.

Story:

It’s not terrible, but I keep getting tripped up on plot holes, that feel very obvious to me.

Characters:

Not awful, I see glimmers of interesting design but overall the characters don’t seem to click together right.

Conclusion:

Not bad, but trips up here and there. Perhaps I’m being judgmental early on since it’s only 50 pages deep, but these are my feelings on it SO FAR!
