OS POSITIVOS

you-a-wrong & rightly so

As the author noted in interview: “comics are the best medium for extreme heightened emotions. A comic where people don’t scream with emotion is only going at half speed in my opinion.”

Opiniões. Então não: autor e personagens falam a vozes diferentes, estas podem subir em escalas de histerismo absolutas sem que o seu criador sinta as linhas que lhe escorrem, vice-versa as personagens podiam estar perfeitamente indiferentes ao seu criador a um punch line de acabar o show. Depende. Voltemos ao enunciado:

That’s the charm of the series, we are always in the world of the characters – experiencing things as they experience them. We are not on some remote plain looking above, but in the guts of its action and passion.

Di(z)cordamos. Há series cujo encanto está no looking above / aside / below enquanto as characters estropiam guts em actions pelas suas passions. E concordamos:

It’s not about trying to approximate life, to reach some naturalistic verite; it’s about exploding outwards from the comics form, embracing the exaggeration and the trash of it; digging deep into it and finding the divine.

Sim. Esse "exploding outwards from the comics form" não exige que o divine esteja na página, essa é uma âncora que o segura, talvez uma fechadura que o abre. Dig deeper. E aqui viramos todos a mesma:

There is a way in which this type of thing can be annoying, a sort of wink-wink nudge-nudge self-awareness that permeates through so much of modern pop-culture. This is what Neil Postman would refer to as pseudo context - “a structure invented to give fragmented and irrelevant information a seeming use [...] pseudo-context provides is not action, or problem-solving, or change. It is the only use left for information with no genuine connection to our lives. And that, of course, is to amuse.”

Que muito nos irrita e disparamos emoções em full speed – autor e algumas personagens juntos – quando o pop-moderno assim o winka porque 1) sim, e também 2) não. Senhores, 3) OS POSITIVOS: divertir-vos não é o plano.

Smaller print: a bd da Sarah Horrocks rocks! mas obviamente foi a ref ao Neil Postman que nos chamou a atenção: quantas vezes encontram o homem ligado aos cómicos que não entre nós?
