Okay look i’m also a comics nerd. I get Bautik’s love of the medium and bringing it up. But there’s two problems with it
1) He dosen’t seem to have progressed past the silver age for whatever reason despite being perosnal friends with one of the bronze age’s best writers and most punchable personaliteis and
2) This is just so BORING. There’s no drama, no tension, not reflection from Son in law of crankshaft and this is the first attempt at an actual joke in days. I dont’ mind bringing in the funky characters, I seem to be the only commenter at times who isn’t against that. Bautik is bringing in ones who do make sense and the focus is often still on the Crankcast, choir week being the only exception. My problem is that none of them are really introduced and that’s doubly an issue when you have new readres (raises hands) who just came in when this came to go comics and may not know the history of either strip like the back of their hand. I only know comics john and mopey pete from reading the comics curmudgeon. Bringing them in isn’t a problem the problem is just NOTHING is happening. Good lord.
