what's up with ava's demon if you don't mind me asking? It seemed like a neat comic
oh, it wasn’t so much the comic itself as it was the creator and the fandom.there’s been a bunch of problems within the fandom, but here’s the main reason i totally abandoned it.
so michelle czajkowski, the creator, drew this picture:
it caused a bit of controversy among the fandom; some people were questioning why maggie was drawn with her nips clearly visible, as she is 15 years old in the comic and such a detail seems pretty unnecessary to go out of your way and add.
anywayy so instead of maybe, you know, responding to these people and explaining why she drew her like this, michelle responded to them by drawing this.
…so of COURSE, the people who were originally concerned were then even more upset, the picture is very clearly depicting maggie in a sexual manner, which is a very uncool thing because she is 15 and a minor..not to mention, the people who were uncomfortable are minors as well.
but then after a lot of people got upset, michelle had decided that the best way out would be to reassure everyone that maggie is aged up to 19 here! even though she looks exactly as she does in the comic!
then she also tried to make it seem as though it was a sexism thing that people didn’t believe her that maggie was 19. but the thing is, gil is ACTUALLY 19 in the comic? while maggie was literally only aged up to 19 so she could justify sexualizing a 15 year old. (and if this really was the case, i think the easy solution would’ve been to just, you know, not have minors in your comic if it’s going to include sexual material?)
anyway, that’s the main reason that I left, especially after seeing how much of the fandom had defended her on this. please inform me if i’ve got information wrong, but this is what i had seen. feel free to think whatever you want from this.
