I hesitate to post this, given the never-ending shitstorm that seems to surround Goblins, but we haven't had a thread in a while, and something big is (supposedly) coming down the pipe.

Thunt has created a rough animatic as proof-of-concept for a Goblins animated series (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=km9RAIeccBQ), and has created a Kickstarter campaign (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1369986283/goblins-animated/) to fund it.

The good:
Professional voice acting.
Minmax - Billy West
Forgath - Maurice LaMarche
Thaco - Jim Cummings
Kore - Steve Blum
Complains - Phil LaMarr
Kin - Jennifer Hale
The animatic is surprisingly smooth, despite the rough linework.
Thunt claims to have learned his lesson after the clusterfuck that was his last fundraiser, and says he actually has legal representation to keep things running smoothly.

The bad:
Each episode is short, at ten minutes long.
Each episode is fucking expensive. The initial campaign goal is nearly half a million dollars, with stretch goals for subsequent episodes at $150-200K each.
As a result, backer tiers are very costly (ranging from $15 for a digital download key to $10,000 for tons of shit), and almost all of them promise loads of rewards, which begs the question of whether or not they'll actually be fulfilled.
We're all familiar with Thunt's problems, both personal and financial.
The campaign is using a dumb "quest system" to unlock campaign information; i.e., it took 1,000 Facebook likes to reveal that Jennifer Hale would play Kin.
After nearly a week, the campaign has raised less than $70,000, which seems low for Goblins, given how inexplicably popular it's always been.

Y'know, I think one of the biggest problems with Goblins is that the art style and the way actions are conveyed are too cartoony and goofy to be properly taken seriously in most situations, and yet it's too ugly and stark to look cartoony enough that the contrast seems deliberate and meaningful. It's just sort of… in this muddy middle ground where it doesn't quite fit anything.

It kind of reminds me of Andrew Dobson's work in some ways. While Thunt obviously puts more work into it and has come a long way from where he started as opposed to Dobson's eternal stagnancy and even degeneration, he still seems to be chaining himself to a handful of lazy, kind of stunted characteristics that aren't doing the comic any favors, but are recognizable as his "style". Like the weird flat faces, the wobbly outlines of a lot of stuff, the jerky little double-motion "wham wham!" type actions.

And this is why this comic is bs

Yeah, the problem with this "shocking twist" is that even if it was actually planned out ahead of time, it was written and delivered so poorly that it seems like an asspull anyway.

Not to mention even if he is raised from the dead, Dies has effectively bypassed his fate already, at least on the horribly spectrum. Forgath won't be treading new ground, so to speak.

And now Forgath is an abomination like his other fellow dwarf.

No, not the bunny one.

Wow, 1 1/2 pages and his death is completely meaningless.

ID: 55276  No.12448


I'm not actually defending the writing here, but I will say that the obvious change of life Forgath has just undergone is not "meaningless".

Goblins is at least trying to be about the characters and their feelings and emotions. So this sort of thing isn't just scratching out one species on the character sheet, writing in another, and continuing on with no reaction. Or at least I assume so.

Anyway, really what I'm trying to say is, death isn't the only meaningful thing, having other massive life shakeups resulting from what is essentially a near-death experience is a perfectly valid technique.

So Thunt (or "Ellipsis") is trans now and says that her coping with that was the cause of her mental breakdown(s).

…For fucks' sake. She hasn't learned anything. Protip to coming out as a gender identity: keep it to those close to you if you've been at your rodeo for years with all the bumps in the road to show for it. Forcing it down on those who have come to hate you, is going to defeat the point of turning that new leaf to begin with, for now they have fresh ammo that you've just given them to shoot you with in your new dress with all the swanky frills. All she needed to do was keep Thunt as the stage name, and Ellipsis as her personal name. Don't need the world's recognition, just those who matter to you.
