    Huh, looks like DC does have purpose to exist.

    It showcases all the flaws of comic book storytelling and condenses them into one page instead of several issues.

    How many years to reveal what "Dark Science" meant in horrible exposition, only to have everybody guess it already? And two more retcons which could probably be undone by the next page.

    And yeah, the ghost artist doesn't know how to draw guns, AT ALL. Or maybe the archaeologist dude grabbed a gummy replica and sat on it.

    Even this horrible attempt looks better.

    Aligeri? ALIGERI? DANTE ALIGHIERI??

    Would've been better if the word has some meaning, but taking it off from a poet... c'mon... aren't there any better meaningful words in Italian that depict evil bosses?
    Corpi Scuri
    Mano Nascosta
    etc

    Cool to see that Kaito being fake is just meant to be generally accepted now.
    This conversation on mezzodes seems long overdue. Like now Diaz is trying to inject some coherency back into the story.

    Kim's crazy, the one male character betrayed the lesbians for no reason, and now they're about to get arrested for existing.

    Aaron Diaz expects us to buy that blah blah Kim's dad isn't a real scientist blah blah retcon blah blah.

    Also Kim had a vision that may or may not have been real and she may or may not be teh gay. Depends on popular opinion from the people who actually like the comic.

    Then he realizes he forgot to invest time and effort into explaining shit, so instead of telling everybody that they're too dumb to get his mastapeece he sucks up and provides some actual exposition that he should have placed at the beginning to properly frame why the fuck the Nephillyphis plot should matter to the reader.

    DC really isn't much better than modern comics, since it has the exact same problems, without the timely updates.

    More pointlessness happens.
    Why does Diaz think it's good storytelling to just be as obtuse as possible?
    Why does a single, bland outfit need an enormous room to sit in?

    He thinks being obtuse is how you build mystery, forgetting that if your audience doesn't care, there's no tension. And the biggest way to burn out an audience in a mystery plot is to keep heaping up the questions without ever answering anything.

    How many times has a secret door or hallway opened up to have a solution conveniently barf onto Kimiko?

    Given how much more and more Kimiko is looking like a man (especially in the last four panels), I have to wonder if Diaz is going to go the trans route.

    decided to check if he updated and surprisingly he did.

    and those ships in the air look like giant shoes.

    This is the best panel layout he's done; it's not cluttered. (I can give the devil his due.) But, that woman's head and face look weird.

    I thought there was a page missing between the last one posted in this thread and this one. But nope, it just updates with some dude in the middle of a conversation, right in the first panel, as if continuing it from the last page. Because that's not super confusing.

    Good paneling and color use but I still can't get over those long-ass text balloons.
    Fast paced dialogues are the core of comics why is it such a common error to do tl;dr

    So that they don't have to draw the character's emoting so much. More dialogue in one panel=less to draw=less work.
    Course, that's the solution you use if you're not willing to edit or truncate your dialogue down to a more bare-bones form. This issue can be common among people who are used to writing prose, or are otherwise inexperienced. Or if you've got your head up your ass and think your writing is basically flawless and couldn't possibly be edited down, lest it lose vital elements.

    I think the latter-most explanation is probably true for Diaz.

    That first panel's kind of a mess. And how the fuck has she been able to fight everyone off like that.
    The nonsense plot is once again attempting to make sense of itself.

    Of course plebcomic is going around mocking other artists everyone hates. She is a talentless hack and no one cares about her serious artwork and she's so desperate to stay relevant and create 'discourse'

    What the everloving fuck is happening anymore?
    I know this comic's a bit fast-paced, on account of the large pages and how slow it updates, but this is just atrocious.

    I guess those two made some sort of super speedy escape to wherever the fuck? Or are they actually still in the same place, and just went to another room? They successfully eluded the giant robots, why would they not leave the location completely to lay low somewhere else, and then try to scrounge through the boxes later?

    I guess I kind of appreciate the bad guys figuring out how to hack Kim. It puts an interesting twist on how things usually go down. Though I wonder how exactly she's able to feel pain, if everything except her brain is mechanical? Why would you intentionally program into yourself the ability to feel pain? In humans it's useful for registering when serious damage is about to occur, but a robot could have a hundred different ways for registering incoming damage, none of which involve them feeling any actual pain. So why can she feel pain?

    There are some very strange expressions going on that I don't fully understand.

    I wonder where Lilith got that galaxy sword. She buy it off of someone on tumblr or what? Also, the guy knows that she isn't actually his daughter, why would he complain of her of all people chopping his arm? Why would she call him dad, when she knows he's not actually her dad? Force of habit? This business with multiple people pretending to be the same person just makes less and less sense, where do the doubles even live? How are they treated?
    Why does she think kissing Kim would be a good way to stall? It's such a minute distraction, and does more to affect the person you're kissing than whoever else you're trying to occupy. Did she forget who she was supposed to be stalling for who?
    Why does he seem so shocked that he practically faints just from seeing them kiss? Wouldn't he just get furious, or more confused? That reaction probably has more to do with how sjws think conservatives react to seeing "liberated womyns" and such.

    So Vonnie replaced the blond dude, it looks like. Except for that one recruiter guy, it's starting to look more and more like membership in this Dark Science shit means directly being a part of the big bad 7. Which doesn't make a whole lot of sense, shouldn't a secret organization that controls everything be bigger with more ranked members and such?
    Who the fuck is that bitch to the left of Vonnie? When the big bad 7 were first introduced, they only had one lady member, and that's the woman to the right. Where did this other lady come from? Is she another replacement for some other member who apparently died?
    Who is Vonnie even talking to?

    Also apparently the Dresden Codak site got fucked, and looks like shit now. Unfortunate though such a thing is to happen to anyone, I can't help but indulge in a little schadenfreude.

    Repeat after me, Diaz, unless you're George Perez doing Crisis on Infinite Earths, just do at most 8 panels per page.

    you know, instead of having them introduce themselves, maybe have them DO SOMETHING INTERESTING.

    Wait why the hell are they friends now? The last time any of them interacted with Kim, they were trying to kill her. And the guy who failed to kill her was severely punished. So why on earth are they saving them now?
    This is probably one of the most atrocious examples of deus ex machina I've ever seen.

    Her arm is black and has a glowing bit. I'd hesitate to say that her arm bears that striking of a resemblance to the group of non-villains.

    At this point, why didn't he just make a completely different character for this story arc? Why reuse an older character if you're just going to change literally everything about them? I'm not even sure if her being a cyborg is particularly relevant to the story, literally any sort of character could fill in for her, and all you'd have to do is add some more stuff introducing and setting them up. You could theoretically have even come out with a better plot for it, if he'd just started from scratch.

    What kinda dumbass shit.
    How does this manage to get worse and worse with each update?
    Bitch changes outfits more than a popstar during a concert.
