More to the point, why in the fuck would a society that has access to FTL travel and can advance time hundreds of millions of years in an enclosed bubble of spacetime bother with oil when they obviously have the capacity to harness much more powerful energy sources? Unless the artist is trying to set up a world in which everyone continues to use oil despite the great expense and the fact that a mostly-free market would have even giant conglomerates saying "fuck this, it's too goddamn expensive to get oil now that it's almost all gone no matter what price we sell it for, so let's start making hydrogen cell cars."

I usually find Dresden Codak smack-dab in the middle of "look at the big, complicated words I use to make my dialogue intentionally obtuse" territory.

He's right, though. Using the right medium and using it well are vital components of any artist/author/etc. A comic with insignificant art, and blocks and blocks of text that don't actually build up to anything meaningful, is nigh-objectively bad.

Well, i dont personally feel the comic "tries to be deep using big words" rather "the comic is a nerd-fest, no one is trying to hide it".

Okay, Mr. Pseudo-intellectual elitist. I know you got upset because someone insulted this little comic you love so dearly, but instead you should back up, and view it objectively.
This comic in question is a poor example of how to exposit a story.

You like this comic, for whatever reason. That's fine, but no one cares, and that doesn't make it good. I'm sure you agree with that statement on it's base level, but I'm sure you're thinking "I don't think it's good just because I like it." But really, you do, otherwise you would have a real way to defend why it is good exposition other than accusing those that don't like it of being illiterate.

It's mathematically unappealing to the majority of audience viewers, the balance of text to art is completely off.
If your text bubbles are 80-90% of most your panels, you're probably doing it wrong. This comic should instead of added more pages, since it had no good reason for this decision.

A lot of the things it does you could get away with in small doses, except this isn't a small dose. This is full speed the entire way through. Your comic should move forward in real time, especially if it's trying to portray something realistically. It hardly breaks away from his giant speech to show the girl's reaction for a moment, or him do anything other than shift a few inches and move the camera. If this were a movie you'd see him talk for a few minutes, see her face as he talked for a few minutes, then see him talk for ten minutes. And that would be terrible without a good reason.

>> No.13092100

Hell yeah.

>> No.13092102

And sometimes you can even get away with that if you can portray some human emotion visually through the speaker's appearance. Well that's not being done here either. And since they can't do that they should have been looking at ways to break up the rant into a better story telling presentation. Namely breaking the "camera" way to view details about what he's wearing, something that might spark a little imagination. A scar on his arm? Maybe a war-buddy picture hanging out of his pocket or falling out of it. The girl's reaction to his words, which they did once. But that's the problem, your time-per-panel is increased by the amount of words, which really throws a wrench in the mechanics of story telling. People passing in and out of the building not paying attention to them. Because even though he's the subject, he's not the only thing in the world, and there are other parts to the story than just him. And as I said earlier his story should be moving in "real time" unless you have a good reason. What I mean by that is, you would speak out all of his dialogue out loud and see how long it takes to do it in the manner you intend for him to say it. Is he rushing through his speech? Is he taking his time and slowly accounting his memories. Well you should utilize any actions he does to add more panels to break up the repetition.

You can have an entire page of just the character's face and walls of text on every panel, but unless you have a good reason, this is going to look very boring and unimaginative. And it's easy to tell the only reason that it has the amount of text it does, is the author's fear of not spelling out every single detail to the audience. It reads more like the introduction to a movie than a conversation. Filled with over-expositional details. Some things he would have realistically just left out of his story to the girl.


>> No.13092106

Instead of steadily feeding you the details you need to get in a comfortable pace, through intelligent means, they instead just have a guy suddenly sit down and spew it out in one sitting without showing much emotion from him, or showing much of anything that's going on around him with it's black background. A pitch black back ground can work, Transmetropolitan did it well, but this was not the time nor the place for it in this strip. Everything else should have been dark but not invisible if that's the feel they wanted for his speech.

And I wrote this giant wall of text because you love them so much.

Never said anything close to that. I never suggested you can't like walls of text. That's another problem with walls of text, you apparently didn't even get my message correctly. But maybe that's just because of wishful thinking on your part.
>>Use example strip that excessive text would make sense.
It doesn't make sense any more sense than any other genre. The story telling still doesn't work.

But assuming you're the same poster, you continue to use the only argument you've presented thus far. And that is, "I am right, that makes others wrong, so I have no need to explain why I am right."

Your need to insult others to make yourself look right , while still refusing to admit the possibility you like something of low quality. There's nothing wrong with liking things of low quality as long as you admit they are just that, low quality. I love Army of Darkness but god help me it's filled with perfect badness. I think you're not as smart as you think you are. But maybe I'm wrong.

I gave you a chance to have an actual discussion to prove your point, which you seem alone in holding in this thread. Seeing as you're only interested in misrepresenting my post via greentext quotes and reaction images I'll bid you a good day, sir.

Smaller wall of text, we'll see if that helps.

Did you guys miss the punchline? It's in the last panel. You know, the short, "We're still gonna fuck though, right?" It's the contrast between the overly-verbose, brick-fucking-wall of text and the short, vulgar sentence at the end. That's it. There's no more to that comic. It's a one-off. It's just that one contrast that makes it funny. Stop nitpicking. Godamn.
