Why are all D&D comics either total shit or someone's masturbatory gore fantasy? Or both?

Surely there has to be some potential in creative media coming from the hobby?

>> No.28907456

The 4e-based one was amazing, it often gets storytimed here on /tg/. Unfortunately it was cut short.

The Pathfinder comic using the iconics didn't look all that good.

>> No.28907468

>> No.28907471

There has been one good D&D comic.

They killed it when 4e came out and WotC stopped supporting 3.5e. But it was glorious while it lasted. I don't believe I have it in dumpable form, but some anon might -- it's the comic just called Dungeons and Dragons, published by IDW.

>> No.28907506

when they stopped supporting 4e* ( I thought that was the excuse, at the least; with DnDNext on the horizon, they cut it?) disregard my cocksucking.

>> No.28907513

The IDW comic was good, but it had one thing wrong with it: nobody bought it, so it got cancelled.

So, D&D comics are:
1. Total shit because they are done by people who don't get paid to do comics.
2. Are someone's masturbatory gore fantasy because that's what sells.

So, there's your answer.

It's not that bothers me, it's the plotting, lazy art decisions and overuse of gore.

I'd say the central conceit of portraying adventurers as very damaged people is actually a decent idea. I find the characters okay considering this (they're like a group of violent delinquents/ex-cons).

But it's not written well, and lampshading bad writing doesn't make it any better.

>> No.28908020


You see them in real life quite often, on people who live and work outside in cold climates. It's a slightly chapped, windburned nose. It actually makes sense in this context. Granted, it gets used in a lot of places where it DOESN'T make sense.

It's a stylistic quirk, and I mind it less than I mind some other stylistic quirks.

Portraying adventureres as damaged is fine, but these folks aren't damaged per se, they're basically anti-sterotypes of their various races.

It is because the good comics inspired by D&D know which D&Disms to focus or not focus on. Without the D&Disms the story is indistinguishable from a standard fantasy story. Focusing on them works best in comedic series.

I imagine that, regarding the SJW's works- some of it is just really mediocre to bad art without ideology involved, I'm sure, see >>28909232 which is just a redraw in that particular artist's style- they have a fetish for taking ideal portrayals (or what they and others see as such; them Sailor girls are twiggy and ridiculously dressed and I'm not even aware of the themes involved inseries, not really my thing) and making them ugly, unideal. To lower fantasy to a semblance of reality (or something worse) as if it will make the two the same.

tl;dr envious destruction of things that offend them in perceived superiority, despite being nothing more than ink and paper. Or maybe an attempt to assault the very idea of beauty so that they can become it. Which they can't, because while they're only mostly ugly on the outside, they're all fairly damn ugly on the inside beyond the well-intentioned core possessed by most every human being.

Not sure if I pity the bad artists legitimately trying and failing to make something good or the SJW's madness more. And I'm probably giving them way too much credit; more like they just like making wonky animu looking things into ugly eyerape to bait weaboos, the same as /v/irgin types like trying to stick it to them. They're not so different. They're both social psychotics with varyingly twisted ideas of how things 'should' work and a severe complex of being wronged, actual levels of wrongedness varying.

The same can be said for everything in life.

The fact of the matter is, though, we're culturally inclined toward discussion about things we dislike.

In our cultural, mutual distaste is as strong a bond as mutual interest.

Of course not, they're mainly targeting the media like they do elsewhere. The difference being no one gives a fuck about what the gaming media thinks.

It's when a nose is drawn in a very simple manner, and then shaded to provide contrast with the face, usually red.

Based on the thread and nothing else, it's a style of nose which originated on tumblr in some attempt at reversing the anime nose (small or nonexistant) into something the tumblrites see as more normal/realistic.
In reality it turned out as a drinkers bloom, fat and red.

The fact it's been thrust upon anime along with "thick" builds for gymnasts adds insult to injury.

Yes, it's a Surrealist painting, but you can't argue that where it's applicable, the realistic structures are spot on, and that the work isn't massively detailed.

If this were redone by tumblr, you could bet that the nose of the mask in the center would lack anything but cell-shading at the most, and it would be unwieldy and bulbous.

The penis would no doubt be censored, or the person changed to a girl entirely.
The "Grain and texture" of the paintings would be almost missing entirely.

It does have a focus.

That was the basic idea in the previous edition of Hackmaster. Most adventurers are at least socially inept, but either survived just long enough to develop some useful skills or had family or backing well-off enough to get them an education virtually guaranteed to keep them out of the way forever.

Adventuring was how the least favorite of eight children of the king gets the fuck out of the upcoming murderfest for the throne. It's how one of the many orphans eventually becomes a renowned archmage.

Character Creation was an involved process but in that way also kind of like selecting pregens in old console games. You don't play the other orphans because the others died of starvation, and you don't play that other prince that gets buggered by his squire in between tea-parties.

You play the one with a shot at doing something with his life.

It's adding insult to injury.
It's basically a calling card for Tumblr comics.

Tumblr comics back when they were beginning to house their iconic red noses and three frame animations.

Usually they have political meanings unrelated to the source topic injected into something where it should have been irrelevant in the first place.

Tumblr is widely known as a destroyer of fandoms.
In fact they've made the entire word, fandom, in and of itself toxic already.

Take a look at this comic:
This was created by someone who was quite overtly anti-self-defense and anti-weapon laws.
That point was forcefully injected into the Legend of Zelda fandom without actually having any kind of contribution or relevance to Legend of Zelda beyond the standard ye olde "It's dangerous to go alone" meme.
I addition it posses red, exaggerated noses on everyone.
And has shitty two frame animation.

All four of these traits are commonly represented in a wide majority of comics created on tumblr.

Radical liberal points are injected into a fandom ad infinium, until it is utterly shitty and destroyed.
Move onto the next thing that people enjoy.

"Stop enjoying things I Like/Don't Like" wasn't a thing before Tumblr and there's a damned good reason for that.

That particular comic, taken on its own, just seems an amusing subversion of expectations. There's little difference between that and a comical interpretation of pokemon as "brutal animal pit-fights held by ten-year-old children as a rite of passage", or calling Animal Crossing a retarded furry exploitation simulator.

The problem I have with tumblr and fandoms is when they relentlessly spam pointlessly short gifs of their latest mass crush. Oh look, it's a set of five gifs of benedict cumberbatch, each half a second long.

even the weakest goon in batman takes multiple hits to down, and you actually have to dodge since blocking usually doesn't work and you have to look exactly the right way, you are usually battling the controls. On harder difficulty each of the lowiest goons is has more HP and does more damage per hit than you. Also ton's of things are unblockable and enemies attack simultaneously interrupting your attacks. That being said it is mostly just extremely tedious easy battle. But you need to use multiple buttons.

In asscreed you 1 hit kill almost everything with a gratuitos prerendered animation on a counter (whose timeframe is more than 10x longer than the counters in batman) which is executed from an unbreakable block. you use exactly 2 buttons in battle, block and counter.
