This was a beautiful and inspiring love story of our time. I’m not kidding. (She did martial arts and was on a man-saving mission! He ran a secret revolution from his tea shop!)

guys i have to tell u about how great this movie/show is

basically this girl isn’t alice, her name is alice and everyone thinks she’s the first one who comes to wonderland. she isn’t though, but she ends up in wonderland through a series of spoilers and wonderland is FUCKED UP

wonderland is set up that they steal humans from the real world (called oysters) and harvest their ‘pearl’. basically they take these humans and put them in a giant casino where people feel various emotions (ecstasy, dissapointment, terror, etc), and these emotions are harvested.

these emotions are then sold as tea to the civillians of wonderland - to mollify them since everyone hates the government this is how they keep them complacent in the system.

of course the hero (alice) comes in, and basically fucks shit up, saves wonderland, sees her father again, the ‘girl who stole her man’ is humanized, the acting is great, and there is an adorable old knight who is the best comedic relief ever.

this show is the only thing that has come close to the brilliance of the original, and brings in its own individuality

this movie/show is like someone came in and filmed your favourite dreams.

i highly recommend watching this

That. And I also like that they did the “Omg, get this, Alice in Wonderland, but dystopia” without going “Omg, let’s make it all dark and twisted looking”. Which is fine but, it get’s done a lot.

Case in point, the Queen’s super secret police ride hot pink flying flamingo bikes, seen here being hijacked by Hatter and Alice.

Everything in the movie is bright and vibrant, oh, and their Jabberwock actually looks like the jabberwocky:

I love many, many versions of Alice in Wonderland, but Syfy’s is my favourite re-interpretation.

MY FAVORITE!

This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy. 

Yup.

So this.

I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.

Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.

One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.

There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.

I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.

There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.

And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.

It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.

OH MAN I SUCK. I was going to post this yesterday for Free Comic Book Day, buuut after sketching/handing out comics all day at my local shop, I pretty much crashed as soon as I got home.
But I was overwhelmed with the positive reception I got to the preview of this comic I posted a few weeks ago, as well as how excited people have been to buy copies at cons since then. So now, as promised, is my original comic MARKED in its entirety :D Thanks for waiting for it, and I hope you’re satisfied with the ending!
