Nick Spencer continues to be the only tolerable writer other than whoever writes the Transformers comics. In short, Astonishing Ant-Man #3 is pretty damn nice. Oh, and I like the gayness of Machinesmith. Sadly, seems like Scott doesn’t get a new pet in this issue.
So, watching Onepunch-Man #12 got me to thinking about the beeeeeeautiful animation in Irresponsible Captain Tylor. And that got me to thinking about older animation in general, particularly cartoons. And you know what I found? I found people being “cool” by saying the 80s sucked and the animation was clunky and you’d need nostalgia goggles to appreciate it.
I also found these people to be full of shit.
Just saw a low quality version of the Onepunch-Man finale. It was beautiful. Like, 80s/90s slave labor animators beautiful. The choreoraphy’s inconsequential of course. But dem details. Dat way the bricks loosen and flew away; it was old skool tight yo. I’d gotta give the finale props just for that animation.
