    Don't like the art and the nudity doesn't do it for me.

      Personally, the nudity isn't even noticeable amidst the revelation of crazy Techno Satan being a thing.

        Whilst anon is gay, it's pretty fair to not find what is pretty much the demon-possessed corpse of a guy's sister especially titillating.

      Man, even with the minor bits of shitposting, that thread was great. Reminds me of when we did Eight Billion Genies.

    i was disappointed in it. the plot was weak, the killer naked chick looks like a suicide girl, hell, there are about half a dozen characters that look like the stepped out of someone's 2010 chronicles of darkness game, it escalated to full apocalypse way too quick, the corrupting darkness imagery was weak and generic, most of the characters were very shallow with the main guys coworker having that serious shithead moment. the idea of a cosmic horror coming through the internet could work, but this was uninspired.

      It also has the issue of the bad guys operating in a way that specifically allows the good guys to oppose them. If you wanted to summon Techno Satan from the Evil Internet you wouldn't have some guy livestream murders in America (which realistically would have gotten shutdown and him geolocated far faster than the comic indicates), you'd pay a couple buildings full of scammers in India to bombard the world with links as your opening move. The story feels like it should have been set 20 years ago given how it treats the internet.

        Did you even read the story? Gabriel very explicitly states that he and Worldtree sealed off the connection so the Undernet couldn't breach containment easily again.the entirety of the first few issues is it trying to build up enough strength to ramp up and spread as far as it needs to whilst avoiding alerting Worldtree to its initial movements.

        That and what you're suggesting would literally either get ignored by most people (scammers from third-world shitholes are rarely convincing and most people aren't going to click on suspicious links out of the blue) or if it did cause a snowball effect, would result in Gabriel knocking off the internet and power grid way earlier. The Undernet only gets as far as it did because it snuck in via the kid's livestream going under the radar and not getting noticed by anyone of note until WAY later.

        You are also hilariously overestimating the speed at which basically anyone shuts down fricked up shit online. You can find videos of real people being tortured or dismembered by cartels that haven't been touched by anyone because they're too 'minor' to be noticed by anyone of relevance or they're on platforms too small to bother with. Most people aren't even going to assume that those were real murders and up until an actual report came in HOURS after the massacre, nobody knew he'd slaughtered almost all of his neighbors. Gabriel himself only noticed because he was already watching for signs of Undernet activity and put 2 and 2 together.

      >it escalated to full apocalypse way too quick,
      There is a MASSIVE time jump between the world actually ending (2049) and the current set-up (2024). And yes, the world going to Hell nigh-instantly is intentional - the Undernet spreads via everything that can possibly connect to the internet, possibly via electrical systems in general. There is no reliable way to contain that sort of spread in any lasting sense.

      >the corrupting darkness imagery was weak and generic
      Seems like a you problem. We've barely seen enough of it to really say much, but what little we do get from that one chick's perspective has more going for it than most depictions of a corruptive darkness in horror fiction.

      >most of the characters were very shallow with the main guys coworker having that serious shithead moment.
      You don't read horror stories for their super-deep characters. More than that, they work within the framework of the story. I agree they could be stronger, but they're fine as is for now.

        it only took five issues to reach an apocalypse. the corrupting darkness imagery was super tame for a book with full nudity and sex, and was generic devils and low end spooky. and this kind of story is hugely character driven.

          It's a pre-apocalypse at most. The actual apocalypse has such a massive gap between it and the present day story that everything else is playing catch-up to it.

          >the corrupting darkness imagery was super tame for a book with full nudity and sex
          Anon, I'm not sure how you think this is tame at all. Obviously it's no House of Velez or whatever, but you can't put something like that in a book. Even then, I still wouldn't call this "generic".

          >and this kind of story is hugely character driven.
          Which isn't a problem. The individual characters aren't particularly offensive and work for the narrative being told.

            IT TOOK FIVE ISSUES TO GET AN APOCAYLPSE. i don't know how many more times i have to say it. yes it's partially non linear, but WE know it now goes full apocalypse. rather than building with what it has, it adds another time frame. and i don't know what kind of horror you read/watch, but both imagery and character are shallow and generic. seriously classic devil imagery with a little blood and a girl bathing blood? thirteen ghosts did better because at least they had backstory. and you can say the same for the characters. shallow generic blurbs that any mid budget horror flick can offer. that can be the description of the whole story, mid budget studio horror flick with delusions of grandeur.
