why does this make me feel mad
Because he’s considered powerful, and she’s considered a whore.
i think they were referring to the fact that thEY’RE BOTH DEFYING THE FUCKING LAWS OF GRAVITY AND THE ONE TIME I TRIED HANGING OFF A MONKEY BAR I BROKE MY NOSE
Or that the woman feels the need to make her steps smooth and sexy, while the man feels like he has to stomp the air.
This fantastic monologue from the fantastic Fall Out Toy Works.
You know, I’m not a professional comics writer. I’ve only written and had one published so far.
But compared to all the comics I read on a weekly basis and the fact I finally read through this entire series today, a comic book is the WORST place to have a three page Wentzian monologue about God.
I mean, in my opinion, Fall Out Toy Works is a jumbled mess of ideas to begin with, but this… this bothered me so much. It bogs down the action and is mostly a wall of text in what is supposed to be a VISUAL medium. If I wasn’t so determined to see where this landed, I would have just closed out my Comixology reader here.
As a counter-example, look at the infamous Helen Cobb letter from Kelly Sue Deconnick’s first Captain Marvel #1. In most cases, something like that would take up anywhere from half a page to an entire one. However, it gets stretched out over four pages, serving as narration to the first time Carol meets her mentor then back to current times as she scatters her ashes. I know Kelly Sue laments the pacing on her first arc, but that’s an effective way to have something that is a block of text and put it into the story without breaking up the visual pace of the comic.
I think if Fall Out Toy Works had more time to actually tell its story, this kind of monologue would have been interesting narration to an issue where Tiffany plays a game of “Real or Not Real” with herself over the false memories planted in her head. Instead, we get this and her own internal crisis somewhat shoved to the side as The Toymaker and the Baron have an existential dick measuring contest with each other over her.
TL;DR: It’s an alright monologue, but this was the worst place to even put it.
Makes sense. I don’t read enough comics, but I do agree that I generally prefer the more visually paced pages. I guess I wasn’t thinking too much about that.

My girlfriend just gave me a verbal smack-down and she’s right. I thought it was good enough to tag the title of the original work, but it really isn’t.
From now on I’m going to always link to the original author in some way or another.
Even if you don’t do it consciously, if you get along well with your family, you’re more likely to have enthusiasm for other things.
