/co/ Christmas card 2020 Anonymous 12/06/2020 (Sun) 15:21:49 No. 7853 [Reply] [Last]
We've given our thanks and weened our hallows, so it's time for our last annual tradition: the /co/ Christmas card! If you don't know what this is: congratulations, you're probably the board's last newfag. We make an overview of notable comics, cartoons, and events relating thereto or to the board, of the past year, and submit (preferably backgroundless) pictures of characters from said media to be put in a collage. The result will be posted on various to be selected boards on Christmas Day. Suggestions are welcome, submissions all the more. Feel free to also mention what boards you'd like to receive the card.

>>6596 >>6674 Good on Antonucci for being a stubborn fuck. I also respect that he at least had the idea to end Ed Edd n Eddy when it started going downhill. The school season wasn't great, but ending with the movie still let it go out on a high note. How did he negotiate to keep the rights to EEnE when show pitching anyway? Usually media companies want full control before agreeing to produce anything.
>>8252 >How did he negotiate to keep the rights to EEnE when show pitching anyway? If I had to guess, abusing the fact that he has his own studio based in Canada and thus using Canadian law while negotiating.

>>7447 This is the oldest example of horribly aging political satire I'm aware of. It's a good reminder of just how terrible it looks to someone who isn't in the writer's present since it's a small detail, but so utterly bizarre to the modern eye it attracts all attention. Even historians aren't entirely sure what "No Old Baby!" means. Best guess is it was mocking a political figure with the surname "Child", but I've found at least two other theories on it.
>>7939 It's one thing for a "political cartoon," (as in the actual genre seen in newspapers and such) to make very timely, and not at all timeless, jokes. It's quite another for a piece that is actually supposed to be good, that is supposed to be entertaining and not just literally expressing the author's opinion on something. Even old Animaniacs, with Bill Clinton references, wouldn't be put in the same league as some fucking newspaper doodle. It certainly wasn't put in just to push the writer's opinion, so it is much more timeless. Clinton was president and he played the saxophone on tv that time. You don't need to know anything more than that to understand it, and the briefest knowledge of American History will tell you that much.

>>6017 Literally Animaniacs: Adult Party, why it's going to last? Simple: One sided jokes, nostalgia cashgrab, reddit pop culture references (one of the writers is best known for working at Family Goy) and unnecessary gross out humor just to compensate the lack satire from both sides. I'm more surprised how they managed to keep their original designs, those horrible strict rightwing model sheets The real question is how did the degenerates Dotfags react to this? The only funny joke was Johnny Depp's movie poster, just showing how they threw him under the bus despite his Funny or Die DRUMPF video. >>7453 >Co-creator of Bosko the Clown Does that mean Bosko is the forgotten 4th Warner Brother, a loose reference to how the brothers had a falling out with their last brother? Also haven't noticed that Hello Nurse is immortal.

Civil War I and II Anonymous 12/15/2020 (Tue) 01:04:56 No. 8058 [Reply]
The dust has been settled for years, but now that the hype and shilling have all died out lets critically examine why the event was so repugnant to some people.

Only good thing to come out of Civil War was dent in Millar's reputation. Before it, people sucked his dick and insisted that something like Wanted is a masterpiece. This started to stop soon after Civil War was done.
>>8159 Do you have any screencaps of this anon?
>>8171 No. It is pretty tough to screencap a trend that takes years of gradual change. If you look at his award nominations, they stopped after 2004, right around the time when the Road to Civil war was starting. Millar's project garnered less and less attention over time, and Kick-Ass was the last overall liked book by him. Other stuff was either ignored (Superior) or became internet's laughing stock (Nemesis). Then you have years of bitching about Ultimates, Spider-Man's identity reveal and how it set up One More Day, and so on.

DuckTales Rumored To Be Cancelled by Disney Anonymous 12/02/2020 (Wed) 20:39:43 No. 7730 [Reply]
>Disney’s DuckTales reboot is rumored to have been quietly cancelled, according to Collider associate editor Drew Taylor >When pressed as to how he knew DuckTales season 3 would be the end of the series, Taylor said most of the crew have already moved on to new projects. >Disney is severely cash strapped right now, and despite animation being a key focus for other streaming services during the pandemic, it doesn’t appear to be a major focus for Disney+. <DuckTales is an incredibly expensive show to produce, and it might have been a casualty of The Mouse House’s dwindling fortunes. Other than hearing decent things about it I'm honestly shocked its getting axed. Of all the shows the Mouse still has they kill one of the few things that can pump out new episodes for a sizable fanbase. https://archive.is/gtftj

Siegfried Storytime Anonymous 09/04/2020 (Fri) 23:49:46 No. 4772 [Reply] [Last]
I'm not very familiar with the mythology but I have heard of this graphic novel original take on the legend based on both the norse myth & the Wagner opera. Seemed worth a share.

>>4772 This comic makes some of the characters a lot nicer than in Wagner's opera. Not that I mind in this instance.
>>4772 >I'm not very familiar with the mythology but I have heard of this graphic novel original take on the legend based on both the norse myth & the Wagner opera. >>4776 >Now enters our title character. Mowg- I mean Siegfried. Or Sigurd from the norse myth version. Siegfried is a German translation. This is a french comic, by the way. Nigga, do you even know your history? Das Nibelungenlied is a medieval German epic. There's also a Norse version of the story - the Völsunga saga - but the German version is similarly old, with both being from the 13th century. The German version of the story isn't something that started with fucking Wagner. The original story isn't exactly Norse or Scandinavian either - except for that escapade in Iceland (which is only a small part of the original story) also, Siegfried dies fairly early on, the whole thing is set in mainland Europe. The focus is on the Burgundian court, it features groups like the Saxons and the Huns (with Hunnish king Etzel likely being based on Atilla). And the whole thing is likely based on an oral tradition about the Burgundian kings during the age of the Great Migrations. Relevant side note: the Scandinavians weren't actually all that original; they picked up quite a few popular tales from mainland Europe. You know how the Elder Edda is divided in poems about gods and poems about heroes? Almost all of those hero poems are set in mainland Europe. Atilla the Hun (Atli) shows up in several of them. Of course the Scandinavians did add their own elements to the stories they adopted - but hey, that's just how premodern literature and storytelling work. If you want a story that probably *is* based on a Scandinavian original, look at Beowulf. Even though it's an Anglosaxon work, the story is set in Denmark, and its style may have Scandinavian influences.
>>8081 No I don't know German history. They don't teach that shit.

>>7941 >>8011 Speaking of Mainframe, the Beast Wars/Beast Machines sequel that was originally planned, Transtech, would have been a hell of a lot better than the Unicron Trilogy. Instead of a full on reboot, erasing any investment I had in the world and characters, we could have had a bunch of G1 guys come back with their original histories in tact, and team up with the cooler Beast era guys. There are a few convention exclusive stories where stuff vaguely along these lines happens, and they're really cool. I'm sure an actual show would have been a lot better. Also, Nightscream wouldn't have looked like an absolute faggot.

Friendlies can be played under normal rules, or, if you choose, under alternate (meme) rulesets that will be decided closer to the Cup's kickoff. If you would like to participate, head on over to the pinned thread at our board on Cafe. The event is set to begin February 13th, 2021. Look forward to having you there!

Where to begin and end with this shit Anonymous 07/17/2020 (Fri) 23:37:15 No. 2969 [Reply] [Last]
So, if you DID want to get into capeshit, what comics do you start with, what order to you read them in, and where are the various "end" points if you want to avoid all the retconning/rewrite bullshit that happens afterwards? Yes, I am asking for an actual guide on how to traverse this circus. And, beyond just the Marvel and DC publications; like all the stuff that was happening with Valiant, Gold Key, Image, and so on. Also, I'm not just asking about character histories, but I mean things like how Detective Comics was actually a series of independent stories until their third year when they introduced Batman and how Spider-Man began in Amazing Adult Fantasy because I do want to read some of those stories before they were hijacked.

>>6558 Capeshit, especially DC, has a lot of stories specifically arguing that they are modern mythology. Call them presumptuous if you wish. The nature of many, many creators working together across multiple generations to form a large interconnected world does call to mind some similarities, regardless of if it's about the supernatural or not. Of course, superheroes being controlled by corporations doesn't help. It doesn't take a redditor to make that argument. It could be a redditor only looking at superficial stuff, or it could be a turbo-autist referencing some deep lore.
>>7950 "Superheroes are the new mythology" reeks of egotism. It is something that self important capeshit writers tell themselves to feel better about writing corporate owned characters aimed at manchildren. Same goes for fanboys overly obsessed with superheroes. Superhero comics never were as important or culturally influential as actual myths used to be.
>>7956 >Superhero comics never were as important or culturally influential as actual myths used to be. Of course not. They're much newer and constrained by intellectual property laws. That is likely to start changing in the next decade, but it will take like a full century before they're fully free to actually be used properly, if ever.

It was obviously going to happen. Remember that PG-13 version of Deadpool 2? Now they have kicked out the writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick for women writers, Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin, who are only known for Bob's Burgers. I would tell Disney to stop wasting their time on trying to make a family friendly Deadpool but Disney will just continue to make bad decisions for the virtue signals.
