pretty much there are only four types of comic book fans here on tumblr at this point
there are comic book fans in general
there are dc fans
there are marvel fans
and then there are the marvel fans who gotta make everything a competition but pretty much shit talks dc without even having a clue what’s going on with dc and is pretty much being an ignorant shit just to make marvel superior
i had more to say on this page but it was already gettin too big so
tenbux says this wont get nearly as many notes because we cant have someone targeting >everyone<, gotta be either a racist or full tumblr
you got it right jim
meanwhile this page is full of shit that actually legit bothers me in animation right now. all these fuckin’ geometric, noodly-limbed spoon-faced white boys (age 12-20-something) and their small, fat friends going on “WACKY ADVENTURES” while having nothing substantial to say (either about the character themselves or the situations around them. not that i expect or even want cartoons to preach but this is a subject i can address another time)
This seems like an especially big dig at Adventure Time. Not that I can blame you, I feel the show’s outlived it’s quirkiness.
I haven’t seen the original post but yeah…this does seem like a big jab at Adventure Time. I have never watched that show though.
its sort of a jab at adventure time. adventure time was just like the cataclysm that started the trend that is now taking over cartoons.
so you got shows like regular show and sanjay and craig and breadwinners and that webseries by pen ward about people in space and uncle grandpa and bee and puppycat and steven universe, and they are all different shades of the same show with maybe some slight variations in aethetics (bee and puppycat/steven universe being the more tumblr-appealing ((because black/female leads)), the rest being geometric/noodly-limbed guys with their short fat friends going on slice-of-life WACKY ADVENTURES!!!1)
i mean maybe i am just getting old and am having a hard time adjusting to these NEW FANGLED CARTOONS. or maybe these are legitimate trends that are choking up the industry and its just becoming wildly transparent now. who knows
That is true, most of those shows or if not all have a lot of the same vibes and the whole “bromance” thing going on. It gets old very fast.
I have to admit, out of the modern cartoons going on, I like Gravity Falls the most. It just seems like it has something new to offer.
And the noodly limbs art style gets old very fast, especially when people start imitating it. I do feel like a lot of cartoons are trying to imitate adventure time, because it’s the most popular cartoon currently. The amount of merchandise of it at London Film and Comic Con was stunning.
