yo shit thank you so much I’m so glad??? Exaggerated expressions are like my favourite thing thing to draw so this makes me super happy omg ;v; I’m having A LOT of fun with this comic 

Hey everyone!  Riy here.

It’s been forever, I know!  I’ve received and read all your messages of love of support and wonderful randomness, and I have to say I miss making daily comics.  You may have noticed that the sidebar on the blog now says “a daily comic from 2014”, and that’s what I’m here to talk about.  So, to the anon who so eloquently asked “where u”, and everyone else who has expressed concern on this subject, here’s your answer.

I have finally graduated high school!  I made it.  Whew.  Congratulations to all the other graduates out there, because holy shit, it is not easy.  Darning-Socks documented from the second semester of my junior year to just after winter break of my senior year, and I really think getting involved in the comic community formed me as much (if not more) as a person than the actual being-a-student thing did.  You guys, the readers, were an ENORMOUS part of what made Darning-Socks such an amazing part of my life, and I really can’t thank you enough.  

It’s because of this comic and the comics I love and the art I love and because of you that I am so happy to share that I’m going to school to study illustration in the fall.  I’ll be attending Savannah College of Art and Design, so if you or someone you know goes there, tell them to hit me up!  I’m so excited, really.  It’s been my dream school since the first time I visited it several years ago.

But I know what you guys are waiting to hear about—“What about the comic?”

Darning-Socks will be going into kind of a cryogenic freeze.  I say that because “hiatus” isn’t really a strong enough word, but “retirement” is TOO strong.  I will not be making any more Darning-Socks comics in the foreseeable future, but I also may make another snap decision one year and decide to document another year of my life.  I can’t tell the future.  As for the blog itself, however, I will be closing the ask box and moving the blog to a secondary account.  Should I choose to “un-freeze” the blog some other time, I’ll be sure to let you all know!

If you guys are interested in following my journey more, there are plenty of places to find me.  I do have a personal blog, and you can follow me on Twitter @MariykaAuber.  I’ve also launched a new art blog where I’ll be posting my art and any non-Darning-Socks related comics I do, which you can find at mariykaauber.tumblr.com.  I love hearing from you guys, so keep in touch!

Thank you so much, for everything.

Riy

So, Tu//rf Wars is coming out, and it’s hard to hide my excitement. 

Kya talking to the girls about her own experiences? Confirmation of Avatar Kyoshi being bisexual? Finding out the Air Nomads were so free and open to all love? Mako being knocked out of his seat when he finds out his two exes are now dating, but he’s still supportive of them, along with everyone else? And all of this is presented in a way where it doesn’t feel political at all, but it’s just natural and wholesome (unlike a certain comic that shall not be named)? Holy shit, sign me right the fuck up.

But … it’s hard for me to truly back up the release of Tu//rf Wars. Because, as much as I love Korr@sami in concept, it fell so flat in the show. They were on the right track for development in seasons 3 and 4. But … when it came time to wrap everything up, it fell short. It was too fast. Korra and Asami were still very much just … friends.

I’m not going to deny the romantic implications of the final scene, where they gazed into each others eyes, holding hands. That’s just dumb. But, it was so … vague.

And the way Bryke paraded their “success” on Tumblr as champion allies to all queer people out there just felt so wrong. “Oh, we were planning this aaaall along, you dummies who didn’t catch it are just homophobes.” Really? I felt like my community was being taken advantage of for the sake of boosted ratings. (It’s funny, because I’ve expressed my feelings over this before, and I’ve been spoken over by other people of the community. “Well, if we like the representation, why can’t you?” Maybe they didn’t know I was a lesbian, but … I d'know, it was obvious since I clearly stated it in the post they responded to.)

I guess what this all boils down to is, I’m conflicted. I want to support Turf Wars, but because of how Korr@sami was played in TLOK, I feel so apprehensive. Bryke has delivered me both the representation I dread, and have been wanting.

Hey! If the AT fandom was composed of lots of different kingdoms, and every ship and every specific character fandom was one kingdom, who would be the rulers and generally the governing forces in them?

ooh boy 

so like, quick review, the AT fandom is all one big happy family but like, there are subfandoms okay and theyre all pretty individual and intense

  • first off you have the Finnatics, i cant really place who dominates that territory but *cough* hint *cough* its mostly @fuckyeahkasumisty and @stupidcoolfinnparty. most of the ATfandom is in on this one but y’know, some more than most. it’s mostly crying people and drawing finn in dresses. and ogling about finn’s hair.
  • then you have the Princess Bubblegum fandom, they’re SUPER analytical and can type off paragraph after paragraph of analyses. i’d say @coolmiddlename used to rule that territory, but right now i’m not super sure. probably @vampsabout. pre s6 pbfandom was a warzone on character hate, morality arcs, and generally textwall screaming at each other.
  • then there’s the Marceline fandom, who is. everyone ngl. i’d place @anaivephilosopher as ruler though imo. but again. it’s everyone. 
  • you have the Lemongrab fandom, a small happy family who’s in pain rn bc of the lack of content? haha. there’s a lot of em. i can’t really remember all right now but off the top of my head are @lemonschweetz and @merleawe. there’s a lot more of you i’d place and i’m sorry i’m not really having a good memory day :x
  • there’s also the fionna and cake fandom, mostly everyone but again there are specific people who rule it, small ish and mostly shipping at most points but generally cool people. i’d top it with @marshalls-adventure and @brittsarts.
  • and the flame princess fandom. always crying and scrambling for content because this show is mean and wont let anyone have it. topped with @burninghonesty.
  • and then there’s the one i started in, the petrifandom, and shit man i gotta tell you this has to be the. most intense one (if not the finnatics). as soon as holly jolly secrets came out, holy heck it exploded, we had whole comics aus backstories theories and EVERYTHING about simon (and betty), the most derailed content you can imagine, betty is the ice queen theories, betty is actually invisible, betty loves coffee, there were MEMES of a ship that was confirmed dead and yet we went through it anyway. i can name at least 10 people who would top this territory including me. there’s a skype chat.
  • as for ships, there’s bubbline (again, everyone, and similar to the PB fandom it’s mostly discourse), smokybear (dead and dying, also sort of crying but on the way to healing), petrigrof (we waited 3 years, it’s crazy), prisjake (it’s mostly cool artists), kim kil whan + his wife (its mostly @leaxilou), fiolee (dA kids), and every other that’s a little too small to name at this point. i can’t say who rules what tbh

/confetti 

HOLY SHIT

I can’t believe we hit 20K! Originally this blog was just run by me, but now I’d like to believe that this has become sort of a community! Together we forge the funniest shit random generators can shove out their assholes.

Uh, this kinda got off the rails.

Thanks so much everyone, I love you all!! Remember to make your own over at explosm.com/rcg and submit them here!!

thathomestar  asked:

any chance you could elaborate on those two guys?

Sure can!

Ben Dunn is dude from Taiwan (he’s a white dude though, he was born in Taiwan though.) and he got into anime and manga there. this was like the late 60s early 70s though. So he’s one of the Old Weeaboos. One of the ones that would get on usenet and order vhs of fansubs because if you wanted to watch anime then that’s what you had to do. Dubs barely existed and professional subs? HO HO HO IT IS TO LAUGH.

Anyway, he became an artist (and isn’t a very good one, y’know though HOW TO DRAW MANGA books that treat anime and manga like it’s own genre? Well he has literally drawn the art for those books.) and like many comic artists/writers in the 80s and 90s he, well. Completely ripped tons of anime off wholesale since it was largely unknown in the west, and even if someone found out the creators have no legal presence in the west so SHIT OUTTA LUCK FOR THEM.

His longest running project is Ninja High School, which started in 87, and is like a whole comic devoted to parody/satire/wordsthatdon’tmeanwholesaleplagiarism of anime. Here’s some covers.

Count the rip-offs!

Anyway his whole career is essentially like this. Even after anime became mainstream in the west he kept ripping it off, here’s his Human Torch design from Marvel’s terrible ‘mangaverse’ project he spearheaded.

HI ASUKA LINA INVERSE LANGLEY HOW ARE YOU

Fred Perry is a little different in that his ripping off is more akin to cliches than direct design choices/plots. Of the two he’s definitely better. His main work (other than porn, holy shit Perry has done so much porn.) is Gold Digger, a similarly long-running comic to Ninja High School. I can’t find any good hi-res covers of it, but you can read like the first 150 issues free online now if you google around for it. It’s definitely better than Ninja High School, aided by the fact Perry is a better artist.

And also loves hot people and basically makes everyone in his comic, male and female, super ripped or curvy or both. That also helps.

Diesel was put out by Antarctic Press, which also does Gold Digger and Ninja High School SO REALLY IT’S A WHOLE COMPANY DEVOTED TO THE IDEA OF RIPPING OFF ANIME AND MANGOS

Do you think that Alfrid had way too much more screen time than Thranduil and the dwarf brothers? I do. D:

whenever i hear or see alfrid i just /loud neverending groaning 

i get that his character was important to contradict thorin’s madness. he was the true face of evil and greed and in order for thorin to achieve sympathy from the audience, they had to put them side by side so that we could see the difference. 

BUT hOLY.. SHIT WAS IT ANNOYING AFTER 45 FUCKING MINUTES OF SEEING JUST HIS METH FACE

he already proved to be an asshole in dos, one or two more scenes in bofa would’ve been enough, bUT NO. LET’S PUSH IT. LET’S KEEP MAKING LEWD INSENSITIVE JOKES AND MAKE HIM THE “COMIC RELIEF”. it was pathetic and really not funny. LITERALLY EVERYONE STOPPED CARING 3 MOVIES AGO, ALFRID! i mean we literally got more of him than all the dwarves (besides the durins) TOGETHER

alfrid, legolas, kiliel - the true stars of the movie that no one cared about tbh
