3 weeks. Three pantsless weeks, and we get 4 pages! What kind of effortless shit is this? Oh and is there any other socio-political criticism DCS has left to painfully add to this nightmare of a Mary Sue comic?

Deja vu. I could have sworn I had seen these pages before.

These pages make an interesting point, albeit one made before in other places. Watership Down springs to mind.

It's funny, the scene where Raine is talking to the inprisoned cow, it reminds me of the scene in Elie Wiesel's Night where Moishe the Beetle is telling the Jews about a Nazi shooting range and the whole village rejects his testimony
and make him more of an outcast. Sad times, sad times.

I think the comic makes a boring point.

Yes, we have. They were part of a preview DCS did a while back. Seeing it in context, it's OK. Nothing more.

DCS says on the RD site, that she is working on the print edition now as well. That's good news. Maybe it'll read better all at once.

Once again, this plot could work. The premise of talking animals is established well enough, as is the first sign of trouble when the boy finds it weird that he sees Raine based on who instead of what she is. I would gradually increase the torque by revealing logical but unpleasant features of the setting, and eventually jump to a nasty shocker like this to reveal the full depravity. Hopefully, at this point the readership would be acclimated to thinking of Raine as a person who happens to be a dog, and I'd change the way people view cartoon animals. (Criticism is welcomed.)

The plot would work if not for the moment of not-quite-acclimation that little kids screw puppies and disapproving is prejudiced and mean. Proportionate retribution for that transgression kicked off a pity party, and everything afterwards has been falling into that. It's such a defining moment that we care less about the industrialized cannibalism that was just featured.

What could we learn from this? Perhaps the value of peer review before publishing.

This is just a remake of DCS's pilot comics for Raine that he released ages ago and If i remember correctly, it was alot better than this.

What compunds this is the claim that the story is semi-autobiographical. Which means that one this is a DCS pity party, and two, any criticism on the story will be taken personally.

The problem about the peer review is that she probably did have her peers review it, but I doubt she took any constructive criticism they gave her to heart, if they gave any.

Oh, and calling a dog 'girl' is bigoted, but calling her 'bitch' is fine. God I have so many problems with this comic.

Nitpick/ Technically, cannibalism is when a creature eats its own species. Humans eating cows wouldn't qualify /nitpick

Congratulations, you just figured out how DCS responds to everything! :-P

Continuity is only important to DCS if it helps either prove his point or get people to agree with his "ideological truths".
If you've done things right, people won't be sure if you've done anything at all.

But! Cannibalism has also been traditionally extended to the consumption of sentient life, a distinction that's generally unknown because it's usually unneeded. Peruse the Narnia series. Ha HA!

Unfortunately, peers that'll savage your work when you need it are as important as they are rare. An indispensable luxury?

A thought occurs. Hormone replacement therapy and related matters take large amounts of time, money, and experience. Odds are that DCS currently freaks most people out by her very presence. In that case she won't have much of a social circle, and it'll be mostly made of old friends and people too used to weirdness to even notice suspect blue dogs. That'd explain it.

:? :sad:

Good morning, Sir, I'm here on behalf on my client the Devil. (A) The latter's said to a confused young teen or whatever, the former's said to a adult who's by that point been through emancipation and finally become proactive. (B) 'girl' can be familiar, condescending, dismissive. It's what you'd call a faithful pet. 'Bitch' is many things, but it's not an assertion of superiority. This is the kind of weird fictional distinction that I'd like to see.

The last several posts in this thread have made very little sense.
