Maybe my assessment was glib. (Honestly, I could probably be swayed on the matter.) I'm only unhappy when it feels like the creators are just trying to pat themselves on the back or win brownie points. I'd be more inclined to give IDW the benefit of the doubt if the stories and art were consistently good.
I have reviews that go into more detail into my thoughts on the first two, I'll get to Witch House in about November or so since I've only skimmed it so far. Short version is I do like them, the frst one just logic issues you just kinda expect from this series and the other had a bit too much going on. I love Keith but even he felt a bit tacked on. I've got a lot respct for the crew on those and eeven including things like Keith, alongside the nifty representation. This case didn't feel brownie point-y since it's not intrisuve and the crew is actually generally in the communites represented. (Hope my joke was funny, you kinda hit a beserk button for me lol)
And Mike is right, what they did to Night of the living dummy was inexusable lol. Although for me it was mainly Jelly Jam , Dummy and Abominble Snowman to a lesser extent that bugged me, the rest looked fine to pretty good, Shock Street easily looked the best, and Scarecrow had some creepy moments, almost tooks too realastic for Goosebumps though.
K? K what? The letter before L? The letter after J? Did you know that in JK the K stands for “kidding?” So your reply is “kidding?” or K as in Potassium? Do you need some Special K for breakfast? K as in I can K/O you? Can I knock you out and feed you to hungry sharks? Sharks have a K in it. "K"? Are you *SALPY* kidding me? I spent a decent portion of my life writing all of that and your response to me is "K"? Are you so mentally handicapped that the only letter you can comprehend is "K" - or are you just some *SALPY THE DUM* who thinks that with such a short response, he can make a statement about how meaningless what was written was? Well, I'll have you know that what I wrote was NOT meaningless, in fact, I even had my written work proof-read by several professors of literature. Don't believe me? I doubt you would, and your response to this will probably be "K" once again. Do I give a *SALP*? No, does it look like I give even the slightest *SALP* about a single letter? I bet you took the time to type that one letter too, I bet you sat there and chuckled to yourself for 20 hearty seconds before pressing "send". You're so *SALPY* pathetic. I'm honestly considering directing you to a psychiatrist, but I'm simply far too nice to do something like that. You, however, will go out of your way to make a fool out of someone by responding to a well-thought-out, intelligent, or humorous statement that probably took longer to write than you can last in *SALPY* with a chimpanzee. What do I have to say to you? Absolutely nothing. I couldn't be bothered to respond to such a worthless attempt at a response. Do you want "K" on your gravestone? Do you want people to remember you as the *SALP*hat who one day decided to respond to someone with a single letter? "Hey, look, everybody! It's that "K" guy!" That's who you are. You're going to be known as the "K" guy. How does it feel? Do you feel happy? Quite honestly, I don't care, which is why I'm not even going to respond to you. Goodbye, and good luck with your future as that guy who said "K". Alright listen up *DUMMY*, and get your comfy seat because we're gonna be here a while. Do you really think you can just get away with "k" as a message? What if someone did that to you, huh? Do you think you would like it? Making an entire paragraph to get a *SALPY* one letter response of the tenth letter in the alphabet, you think that's *SALPING* funny, *DUMMY*? Do you want your crush to respond back with "k" after you spill your feelings out like this? (Take me back, Emma.) Huh? What if I did it to you? k. Did you like that? What, did you just peed in your pants because someone disregarded your entire effort of writing this ENTIRE paragraph FROM HAND in about fifteen minutes? That just makes me feel *SALPIED* rejected just like my ex. (Take me back, Roxanne.) k. What're you, *A DUMMY*? Can I have a response that actually MEANS something instead of just *SALPPING* our "conversation" with the spam of "k?" Now occasionally with questions or something it's reasonable, but doing it to any *SALPY* response they say. "We're having a nuclear crisis, you have fifteen minutes to evacuate." You're the type of person that would say "k" to that, you *SALPY* hypocrite. You think you can get away with this, right? You think it's SOOOOOO funny to do this *SALP*, but I can guarantee that you'll be taken out back and shot soon. You're *SALPY* dead, "k"iddo.
Took me a few minutes to remove all the swearing but it was worth it
The IDW comics are pretty not great with diversity. They've got fleshed out, good LGBT and PoC characters, but they've so obviously been shoehorned in. However, it is nice to see at least one LGBT character in the entirety of Stine's writing, even though Stine has no part in the comics (and also if I remember correctly, according to Troy Steele's blog, aren't there only 3 characters, none of them protagonists, who are PoC in the series?)
also also, Scarecrow Walks at Midnight and the Werewolf of Fever Swamp comics are GOLD, everything else isn't great
I'm only reopening this thread because I noticed something tangentially related to the original category-of-discussion.
>While she was preparing things, Mrs. Dark caught her turning her into a demon. [...] She also admitted that she has had feelings for Ellie ever since she arrived. Ellie shared these feelings and the two fell in love, starting to go on scares together.
