Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #93

The Minstrel, Q-boy, & Muffina Winters On Self-Esteem

ccc-86-theminstrelqboymuffytemplate

Well it looks like Muffy and The Minstrel are getting along now… We’ll see how long that lasts.

So in the last episode of “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” “Buffy” gives this speech about being “cookie dough” as opposed to “cookies”.  Mostly this comic is making fun of that. There’s a good joke about “eating her” but mostly the speech seems oddly pre-prepared for the situation.

Tomorrow The Minstrel, Q-boy, & Spiderous-Man talk once again talk about self-esteem and maybe a movie coming out get mentioned. Hope you enjoy, and see ya then!

Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #86 The Minstrel, Q-boy, & Muffina Winters On The Olympics

Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #86

The Minstrel, Q-boy, & Muffina Winters On The Olympics

ccc-86-theminstrelqboymuffy

I haven’t watched one second of The Olympics.  I just don’t care.

So I decided I’m going to run with this whole “trying to make the comic relatable” thing I started last week for a while. Also as the comic suggests I’m keeping The Minstrel (my “Harley Quinn” based character if you didn’t know) around to ride on the wave of popularity “Harley Quinn” has gotten from “Suicide Squad”.

Muffina Winters (my “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” character if you didn’t know) if you notice is referred to as “the former
“Murderess Of Monsters”. She appeared a few times in this comic and “The History Of Comics With Q-boy”.  I have a whole story about it if I ever get around to it.

Tomorrow The Minstrel and Q-boy return and are joined by Freedom Female (the “Wonder Woman” character) to talk about anxiety. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #84 The Minstrel, Q-boy, & Nodachi On The Struggle To Eat Healthy

Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #84

The Minstrel, Q-boy, & Nodachi On The Struggle To Eat Healthy

ccc-84-theminstrelqboynodachi

“Katana” is a woman named after a sword so I just picked a different sword for this chatacter based o her, “Nodachi”. A nodachi is a super long sword like the one the “Sephiroth” from “Final Fantasy VII” uses.

So the general idea about this comic was making fun of attempting to make this comic more like a “normal” webcomic (many of which are focused on gags based around relatable topics).  Enough of this, back to talking about “Suicide Squad”. Let’s get to “Harley Quinn”.

In previous comics I made it pretty clear I wasn’t a big fan of “Harley Quinn” being part of “Suicide Squad” or her costume changes over time.  It just makes no logical sense why anyone would pick “Harley Quinn” to be part of “Suicide Squad”. She is unstable, unpredictable, and has no powers.  If any fairly athletic chick with a bat can make your black ops team you need to shut that team down and start over.

“Katana” much like “Jubilee” in “X-men: Apocalypse” is given very little to do. I think she only has two lines that are actually in English.  She’s just kinda thrown into it, and that’s it…

“Captain Boomerang” is given the big intro treatment (that leads to a “Flash” cameo (and he still looks stupid)) that “Deadshot” and “Harley Quinn” get but again he doesn’t do much.  There’s no part of this movie that really required the use of a boomerang.

“Killer Croc” looks really stupid and barely even speaks. I wish they made him like the version in “Batman The Animated Series” but that’s purely personal preference because that’s the version of the character I know.  He does actually use his special abilities by swimming through the sewer at one point (you don’t see it) and using his strength to throw something.

The other characters I either covered last time or it would be spoilery to talk about them much. The villain is stupid and their plans completely change without explanation. The plot shows no need for this particular group of characters besides maybe “El Diablo”. The action is weak. These so called “worst of the worst” are actually pretty tame and damn near heroic. All that and all the humor falls flat.

We’ll finish up with “Suicide Squad” as Q-boy, The Minstrel and in his first appearance (the “Joker” character) The Mad Jester discuss dating. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

If you’re asking what “Pepe the frog” and “frog on a unicycle” are… I honestly don’t really know. In fact I didn’t know the “crying frog” was named Pepe for some reason for the longest time. Where did they come from? What do they really mean? No clue… But they are memes I see (especially on Instagram) and some of them are pretty funny. Also I don’t know who “Young Metro” is or about his trust issues. I wonder if this is what people who don’t comics feel when watching comic book movies.  Enjoying it but feeling like you’re missing something. Gee hope that isn’t how it feels to read these comics… Moving on…

So the big “Agents Of Shield” finale was last night. It sucked like almost every episode does.  A different person died than I thought but that person barely counts. Tomorrow we’ll hear from The Smasher, General Magnetic, and Dr. Do talk about our secret group of heroes from Monday’s comic.  Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #38

Muffina Winters, Q-boy, & Slowku On The Afterlife (Censored)

ccc-38-muffyqboyslowkutemplatec

I know I said “that’s it for this week”, but I had the idea for this one and wanted to share it.  So here’s a special Friday edition of Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations. So here’s the two main things I wanted to get at with this one

  1. (If you don’t know or care about “Dragonball” you might wanna skip this) Goku being a crappy parent

People try to argue that Goku isn’t a crappy parent, but here’s the thing…. He abandons his family at every possible opportunity. See Goku never wanted to marry Chi Chi.  He agreed to when he was a kid and didn’t know what it was and then sorta went along with it later.  You never see Goku be like “I miss Chi Chi” or “man I can’t wait to bang Chi Chi” in the entire show.  Can’t really blame him cuz’ Chi Chi is a total nag.

Goku dies fighting Raditz and can contact anyone on Earth through King Kai. Does he ever contact Chi Chi? Nope! Goku escapes Namek’s explosion. Does he get back to his family as soon as possible or even let them wish him back to Earth? Nope! He learns Instant Transmission and teaches no one so he can always get away and no one can find him.

During the Cell Saga Goku actually spends time with Gohan training and then just chilling out for a while…. Which is strange because he could have actually kept training absolutely ensure he’d be able to beat Cell.  Instead he THINKS Gohan MIGHT be strong enough and puts the pressure of saving the world on his 11 year old son.  He EVEN gives Cell a sensu bean! …. Things don’t work out and Goku sacrifices himself by teleporting himself and Cell away when Cell tries to self-destruct.  Seems noble. Except Goku has plenty of time to get away.  He doesn’t.  He get’s killed again on purpose to get away from him family.

Think that’s crazy? After this Goku doesn’t contact his family at all for 7 years! Again he can contact anyone at any time with King Kai but chooses not to.  We know this because next thing we know Goku has another son that’s 7 years old that he doesn’t even know about.  As a side some people use one of the Dragonball movies as an example of how Goku is a good dad.  In the movie he teleports from heaven to help Gohan in a fight.  Usually movies are not considered cannon but this actually works against their argument.  This means Goku could teleport from the afterlife anytime and again chooses not to.

Then we get to the Buu saga where Goku withhold the fact he can turn Super Saiyan 3 and probably beat Buu early on because “the kids should beat him”. Then once again when that doesn’t work out and pretty much everyone is kills and the Earth is about to be destroyed Goku saves a relative stranger and his dog over his own kids.

Then we get to the end of Dragonball Z where first Goku once again is wants to blow off a gathering with friends and family so he can watch some dinosaur eggs or something.  Then at the very end he flies off to train with Uub and if you count GT he once again doesn’t contact his family for like 10 years.  Only seen less than 20 episodes of Super but yes he abandons his family to train in that too.  Goku is a crappy parent. There are many reasons I believe why he is that way, but I’ll get into that another day…

2. (If you don’t know or care about “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” you might wanna skip this) Buffy “dieing”

Technical dieing isn’t dieing. So Buffy drowns in Season 1 and from this we get a 2nd Slayer Kendra and then Faith when Kendra is killed.  All of this makes Buffy’s power make no sense.  If Buffy “died” then she should have either no power when she was revived; half power because she’s sharing it with another Slayer; or their should be no 2nd Slayer.

If Buffy died the 2nd time in “The Gift” then shouldn’t there be a 3rd Slayer? Speaking of “The Gift” most people see her jumping into the portal as this noble gesture, but I see it as just saying “eff it”.  Buffy risked the world by not killing this nonexistent person in the form of her sister, Dawn. Also irresponsibly leaving the world with no Slayer as Faith is crazy and was in jail at the point.

Okay and THAT is it for this week. Seriously this time. See ya next week and hope you enjoy!

Q-boy Short #47 Trading Up Or Down Depending On How You Look At It / The History Of Q-boy Part 45 (Censored)

qbs47c

So Q-boy dumps Miss Direction and finds a new girlfriend in Muffina Winters.  So if you’ve been reading these comics for a while I’ve been hinting around with this character for a while (specifically in these comics http://qr.net/bzznB & http://qr.net/bzzma ).  So yeah she’s basically this universe’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Each panel of this comic is based on covers drawn by John Romita Sr. (who Paulie Damiko is based on).

That’s pretty much it. Next time Eddy meets the drunken master and tried to recruit him. Also new Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations Tuesday-Thursday. Hope you enjoy and see ya next time!
