How About a R. Crumb Thread?
Presenting: Mr. DickNose !!
Dick Nose 5 (end)
Any more? It's all I gots.
Yes I agree - R Crumb was to Adult Cartoons
what Disney is to Mickey Mouse
I really should see if there is a tor somewhere with his shit. Even the non-sexually explicit stuff was really revolutionary as far as social criticism goes.
See my "social commentary" post earlier. That is what makes the difference between smut and art.
I think another reason I like this comic so much is that it shits on so many other super hero mythos.
Eh, she's going full retard here. The whole 'your important stuff doesn't matter because little people are poor' thing doesn't fly when the 'important stuff' is literally saving the world from falling into the sun or whaever.
On the flip side, just recently we have seen a large number of organizations saying that a human expedition to mars is the greatest thing for humankind to achieve. Yet the primary problems of feeding and housing people remain, even in first world countries.
Yeah, and if she was talking to the Mars Mission people, right on (some of it), but she's talking to stereotypical superheroes saving the world on a regular basis. Space preening? Wasteful. Stopping Dr Evil melting Denmark with a really powerful Crystal Magnet, really really not objectionable.
>mfw dicknose is what people used to call me in highschool... no lie
The comic is using what is called a metaphor. Any "urgent" or pressing issue could take the place of an evil dude in a mountain threatening the world with a laser on the moon.
It is difficult for those individuals of low incomes to worry about larger issues that have longer term affects if their basic needs aren't being met.
That's okay, 9 in 10 people enjoy gangbangs
>Yet the primary problems of feeding and housing people remain, even in first world countries.
First world countries as in wealthy nations? Not so much. Yeah, usa, but they're "special".
Male sexuality and the dismissal of autonomy if you are perceived as attractive.
Also, repulsion and disgust towards minorities.
Maybe figure it out on your own?
It's not meant to raise the feels, it is a simple statement of fact.
You can't worry about how much plastic you are dumping in to the ocean, or how many fossil fuels you are using, or slave labor in another country when you are having trouble paying rent, or putting food on the table. No emotions needed.
That would be a good read.
I like Ennis, i've read a bunch of his comics and typically I like his style. I like how its grim and shit.
But for fucks sake Ennis you've DONE the whole "SUPERHEROS ARE FUCKTARDS" thing before.
Like, in almost every comic you've fucking DONE.
>Preacher: MC constantly denies being a "hero" and openly derides such terms
>The Boys: Literally the entire premise
>Crossed: Grimmest of the Grimdark, anyone who tries to act heroic turns into a crazed skullfucker
He also did one about some giant superhero orgy and now this one.
WE GET IT GARTH. WE FUCKING GET IT THAT YOU HATE SUPER HEROS GIVE IT A FUCKING REST ALREADY.
Super hero stories are boring.
It's the worst possible metaphor. Even people literally starving to death would go without food for another day to avoid being nuked. And the stuff about bombing schools n shit? It seems like the author is more interested in fucking up 'the terrorists' (mention of 9/11), than action on homelessness in the us, pretty much the exact opposite of what you're suggesting.
Keep posting btw, is awesome.
So why does he keep harping on about them? I mean for fucks sake, its a big world he can write comics about fucking anything and people would still buy it because he's GARTH FUCKING ENNIS.
So why the fuck doesn't he write about, I don't even fucking know what, Clowns or some shit. I'd read it. Sad clown laments on how the world is shit and kicks a lot of ass.
I think he keeps harping on them because everyone and their mother writes super hero comics. They are so fully submerged in our culture that you can't go a year without some rehash of an old super hero cropping back up. Yes, I agree it's a bit contrarian to continually use that theme.
thanks op for the dick nose comic? cuz I am the one posting all this shit.
I got a call from a brody, and he is chatting my ear off.
I had read it the first time back in the golden age of AOL internet.
What is image limit on threads these days?
OP just had dick face and then fucked off.
That is two really long comics posted. Ima take a break.
I use download helper. It allows you to download whole volumes of files on a webpage.
I love that he just points at it.
I'll dump this real quick before I pass out
one of my faves
