This is a machine translation, so take it with a grain of salt. But it seems one of the top reasons for not wanting a Hollywood adaptation is that these things are already perfectly good as animation. I'm really happy to hear that. Imagine that. Not regarding animation as lesser!
BTW this advice is coming from a very accomplished creator. Jason Thompson has written several books, drawn and published several original comics, written others. Oh and he was the original editor in Chief of Shonen Jump USA when it was the BEST SELLING COMIC IN ALL OF AMERICA.
@TubaticPrime Aw thanks! BTW the clip of the girl performing a "dragonscrew" (one of the most dangerous moves in pro wrestling) on a goat is from the show Nichijou. It's really good!
This is great if you have a ton of money to invest or already have a ton of goats and no urgent need to sell them. But if that $60 was all you had you're, playing a dangerous game. GET AWAY FROM THOSE GOATS!
@docsquiddy It's one thing to have a discussion about the prevalence of violence as the default in games sure. But to come up with a new term that either erases or appropriates the rich history of nonviolent games under the Anglocentric "wholesome" moniker strikes me as a kind of Columbusing
@docsquiddy I also really really really don't like how it implies that violent videogames are bad. There's nothing inherently bad about violence in games. Execution is what gives them value and meaning and cultural influence. That applies to ALL kinds of games, violent or not!
@docsquiddy I don't like how it implies that non violent games haven't already existed since the beginning of games. Also how it paves the path forward for nonviolent games as inherently moralistic instead of ya know, whatever the hell they want to be.
Shiina Ring's cover of "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" is so excellent. Such a confident take on the song that champions the original while totally owning it in her own style.
I don't know anything about German comics, but Matthias Schultheiss sounds like an amazing artist! The controversy surrounding his early comics work in his home country sounds like the most German thing ever haha.
Propellerman was Matthias Schultheiss's attempt to break into the American market. It looks AMAZING! But unfortunately it did not sell well. Here's a nice writeup on the series (with more images!): https://t.co/BEMYtGYA8q
Welp, now I got a new holy grail of obscure comics ephemera to try and track down! Im Zentrum des Wahnsinns ("In the Center of Madness") by Matthias Schultheiss Source: https://t.co/2aH0Udmvo9 (image here is an imperfect machine translation)
