Looking back at the references for those flashbacks was painful!
Why was it so painful looking at the references?
I’m assuming she means the old art didn’t measure up to her current standards.
Probably that. But she shouldn’t see that as painful. She should see that as a testimony of the progress she has made, and an encouragement to keep progressing further!
Wait, what was wrong with her old art?
Nothing. But art improves things over time. The most evident examples being Questionable Content and Brawl in the family; you can really see the difference between the first and latest comic. With Kiwi Blitz, it’s not very evident: the characters seem to have a bit smaller heads, but it’s not really comparable; the art is still amazing going that far back.
Yeah, that’s what was thinking: true there are improvements, but they are relatively ‘minor’ ‘tweaks’ rather than a huge upgrade (and yeah, regularly read QC but never heard of Brawl before)
Oh hey, that’s right! There’s a mecha in this comic, too!
Sometimes having to explain yourself to dad is just as intimidating when your twenty five as it is when you’re four.
“son, I am not mad at you. I am just disappointed.”
“Son, I am disappoint.”
I think I get it. Bahia Sr. doesn’t dislike Blitz per se: He’s bitter that his hands have been tied for so long by bureaucracy and this little girl just runs in and does his job in ways he’s not allowed to.
Yeah, getting that vibe as well
“I dunno, dad. Is our job too hard? Let me ask Arm-Kun. Hey, Arm-Kun, how do you feel about our equipment situation?”
*Hand-Mouth talky actions* “Our equipment situation’s great! Stun Batons are toootaly effective against killer cyborgs!
“Of Course, Arm-Kun, and what about this Raccoon fellow? Don’t you think that a child with a bit of criminal funding can make a complete mockery of our local police force speaks terribly of the current state of affairs?”
*Hand-Mouth talky actions* “Of course not! That Racoon’s a genius mastermind thief protege! That totally happens, right?
“No, yeah, that totally happens. Nothing weird about that. So like, there’s no reason we’d require assistance from a child with access to lots of expensive gadgetry is there?”
*Hand-Mouth talky actions* “Such assistance would make that child a menace to society!”
“For sure, for sure, I agree entirely. Any time you wanna jump in here dad. Anything you want to ask Arm-Kun?”
“Alright, Arm-Kun. You’ve made your point. You’re now being promoted to Head of Punching Crime”
Arm-Kun! Agent of P.U.N.C.H.!
“But son, YOU’RE FIRED!!!! Oh, and tell your mother I will be home late tonight and ask her if she could put my dinner in the microwave and I’ll warm it up when I get in.”
Cube, it’s painful because it makes you realise how much more you’ve improved!
And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
But it looks like Cho and Papa Reed are fighting over who is the most Grouchy McGrumperson.
(What’s Cho’s full name anyway?)
“Reed’s Partner Cho”
I love it when people oversimplify things.. and they never realize how insipid it is to imply that nobody should ever accept help or advice from anyone ‘below them’ and they’re always right because they’re the authority..
Their job is to do things legally. (If they’d wanted to illegally kidnap the snake guy they could have done so easily.)
I’m sure the chief would welcome help that achieved that goal.
that new arm has integrated well with Reed, hasn’t it?
Hah! I’m glad somebody finally got called on the old “[Superhero] can do things the police can’t” line.
The line is always uttered as if it’s a terrible shame that we have rule of law.
Frustrates me the most when they pull that argument with Spider-man. I mean sweet shit, do you know how many superpowered officers the NYPD would have if every New Yorker with a “gift” joined the police force instead of running off to do their own thing willy nilly? Plus Peter Parker makes all sorts of advanced crime-fighting gear on a budget, which honestly would probably be more valuable to the cause than his spider-strength ever was.
What superheros can do that the police can’t? Like pulling a Batman?
“Wait, so you’re NOT saying a team of vigilantes riding around in adorably colored war machines can handle crime better than the Police? Darn, there go my “Police Team Super X Rangers” Plans.”
Just read this. I am semi ashamed to admit that I was internally giggling and occasionally D’aawwwing despite being a 17 year old male.
Pretty sure Seniors line (“…because our job is too hard…“) is going to be significant
