Angelic Storytime

Xavier Wood
Xavier Wood

Advertised as "Watership Down meets WALL·E with some feminist elements thrown in", except that the only sentient beings left are the genetically modified war animals and related kin, the man-made vehicles are presumably all wrecks, and outer space is not yet explicitly depicted.

This is not high-concept at all.

Starring a major candidate for "the best non-human female protagonist in reaction faces of 2017 in comic books."

You may check out Simon Spurrier's other independent, non-licensed, non-work-for-hire traditional comic books (plus Caspar Wijngaard's first American comic book work):

This is a pretty interesting comic, though I could certainly do without the feminism, and Qora herself is pretty obnoxious. The dolts are my favorite.

murderous rocket dolphins who chatter energetically in flowery poetic prose about murder and hunting
This is an idea way too good to be wasted on this comic. Such a shame.

they talk in perfect english, but still have quirky dumb names for everything
Stupid pink monkey wants to debate and argue about how she should be able to help even though she doesn't know what she's doing and her friends are getting killed while she wastes time
oh, but she's so rebellious and snarky and there's an older female character who is strict and angry at her.. Boy that's not cliche at all!
Oh and she questions their sacred traditions because she's so smart and clever – This is really original.

"Why do the men get to fight and protect us, but we have to do other stuff! It's not fair!"
If we just make every other character stupid, then our protag will look so smart and witty!
They're gonna do the most evil thing they can think of.. Make her get married and settle down!
This is fucking pitifully moronic.

being made someone's wife involves chopping off their wings
better show how evil and mean this is, even though they've been doing it for generations, by making the latest victim look sad while everyone is being retarded and celebrating.
watch us pretend to have emotional weight to our characters by ripping off literally every Disney movie ever!

lasercats
oh no.. please don't kill this character we don't actually give a fuck about.. please.
Fuck yeah, best characters are back. Too bad the laserdolhpins are saving the shitty disney princess monkey for some reason.
something about the dolphins turning murderous whenever they fly..?

Plot twist!
Turns out the stupid, senseless religious beliefs of the monkeys were stupid all along!
How convenient! They wanted to talk to a female monkey!
it's just that all the dolphins are dumb men haha
it's a manatee, because why the fuck not?
They enlightened feminist savior of the story who wants to end the oppressive patriarchal rape of the male monkeys against their women are.. seacows.
I can't think of a better mouthpiece for feminism than a blubbery animal that's famed for it's low intellect and sluggish nature.

So after reading all of this and realizing it's the same hack who wrote the newer, awful Shadow comics, I have to wonder who keeps giving this hack work. His shit is derivative as fuck, and any remotely entertaining ideas he might have are overshadowed by his massive ham-fists, as he waves them about trying to make some grandiloquent allegory about humanity and society, all while writing an especially derivative take on a well-worn character archetype that's been done to death for centuries.

Kayden Peterson

It's really embarrassing, too, to see a man write stories in which he puts feminist and queer virtue signalling above telling a good story, over and over. What kind of man does that?

Ryan Richardson
Ryan Richardson

It's like he was trying so hard to tell a feminist fairy tale that he just ends up ripping off Little Mermaid, Mulan, and Beauty and the Beast, because feminism doesn't actually lend itself to storytelling. Given the blurb at the end about how the whole story is an allegory for humans not questioning tradition, it's hard to say that this might get better later on.

Funny how they want us to questions traditions, but don't you dare question feminism. The more time goes by, the more people like this turn out to be not so different from the religious right they purport to hate.

Jesus christ thats on the fucking nose. The lack of self awareness is palpable here. I can't wait to see that their 'god' is going to be a stack of recordings of some brown androgynous be-spectacled dyke haired academic/public figure talking about AMAZING things like down with Men and fuck all tradition and other talking points from Tumblrs front page.

that writer's letter at the end
<I'll take shit that didn't happen for 600 Alex!
Good grief, this turbo faggot is trying so hard to imply that humans are so racist that we make animals racist just by being near them.
Also what a waste of a perfectly good premise, instead of creating a story where alien looking hybrids of different animals fight each other over the scraps left by humanity, we instead get feminist propaganda with robot dolphins, tron cat and the flying monkeys from The Wizard of Oz.

WHAT is with the palette? This has the same horrid blue and purple my-crayon-box-melted look as America. Is this some kind of subliminal transgender virtue signalling? Should we blame Twilight Sparkle? It looks like Lisa Frank threw up.

Excelent setting, amazing art.
But every clichè they used here is Disney level. And boy, did they usde a lot of cliches, they saw Happy Feet and they added Disney princess, and boom they had this comic.
It is trying so hard it is not even funny.

I could be actually be good if it was rewritten with tolerable dialogue and no political bullshit. The setting is interesting, the art is okay, but it still sucks so much

Sebastian Murphy

I think it's the dialog that holds it back almost as badly as the knock-off Disney Princess plotline. Nearly all of it is arguing or complaining.

Im supposed to believe that genetically altered cyber dolphins are stupid dolts, but Manatees in hoverrounds are somehow the thinking masterclass? Actually, never mind, that's too much like how real society works.

God, I knew they were going to do something screwy with the humans to gratify the writers out of control leftism but the insipid anarchism of
I'll refuse a position of leadership because no one should follow anyone blindly and I'm too much of an idiot to teach them to follow me because they like the cut of my gib instead of me killing the devil, so they'll probably default back to the ebil patriarchy
Really sticks in the craw. God damn subhumans.
