I've been told I have a knack for picking good attributes out of things that are complete shit, but this can sometimes blind me to just how AWFUL something really is. As I love the reviews written here, what better way to get a criticizing opinion than here?
To start off with I have some pros and cons of the comic that I observed myself.
Call this a preference but I find the art rather enjoyable. The colors are such a mix of bright and clashing that although sometimes it feels cluttered in color scheme it's always interesting. It's one of the comics I find myself looking at the recent update several times to appreciate the poses and expressions. Though all the characters do have bendy noodle bodies devoid of bones or joints, I find the style refreshing among all the shiny animu eyes around every corner. The story seems to also really want to be super interesting. But there are cons that subtract from it being overly exciting.
Mentioning the story again, it can't seem to decide yet between 'there is something cool going on here' and HIGH SCHEWL DRAMUR. Which is...distracting. I often forget that there's some omnipotent being (I think she's omnipotent there is never a lot given about these menacing figures) planning some messed up shit for our frightened little protagonist. And when this character is shown plotting or what have you it's for such a short period of time that NO information is given on what's going on with her or what's supposed to be happening. Now, I understand that the comic is pretty new, so maybe it will get more exciting later but often I just find myself questioning; Why?
There are also more annoying but less constant or present cons such as, if Tentadora (the antichrists' bodyguard) was specifically created to watch over Damian (super creative name for the antichrist by the way) why was she built as a boobilicious babe? This would make sense if Damian was supposed to be incredibly sinful I suppose, but he presents strong dislike for lustful feelings presented for his caretaker because she was, well, his nanny and he knew her since he was a tyke. So, why is that a thing? Why is she that sexy? Is there really a purpose? It says she lures mortals into sins like adultery so that Hell has more souls to claim but she's never shown doing such and as it is she's such a bobblehead that she can't even keep track of the kid she's supposed to be watching. I know that if you have a kid to watch you're not going to be doing tons of whoring around. At least not without sacrificing the care of the child, which was what she was solely created for, so says her character bio.
Also, stop with the upside down crosses as a satanic symbol. It wasn't originally one and nobody should be pursuing it as such because that only encourages ignorance.
And why are all the hellspawn furries?
Though that isn't all the pros or cons of the comic, it seemed like enough to spur on some conversation about whether this could be considered a bad webcomic or not. Though I follow its updates (which have been on hold repeatedly because of the Author's college tasks) I would like to hear what the community thinks of it.
