This webcomic was an absolute drag to read. I'm biased in that I already don't like single-panel comics- Ava's Demon does it, but at least the artist makes a sense of progress per panel (most of the time).
Here, I feel like I'm going insane every time I hit the arrow key and see that some small detail was changed because they really want to capture an 'animation' type of aesthetic. It's very bothersome. Do I REALLY need to flip through 4 different panels to watch two characters walk past each other? Can't this just be done in one panel? It's almost like the artist(s) are incapable of conveying movement and actions in a condensed space and deliberately draw out said actions. It's even more annoying that every time you go forward, a new page has to load.
I also hate the Steven Universe aesthetic, so... yikes, this comic is like a checklist of all the things I hate.
Are you sure you didn't make this review just so you can express your hatred for Steven Universe and its creators? --At4wfan 17:49, March 22, 2018
- I know jack shit about Steven Universe. I know that it's annoying and the worldbuilding/lore/plot makes little sense, and features some borderline degeneracy, such as having sex allegories in a childrens' show where children are apart of the main cast. Basically it's retarded and doesn't appeal to me in any way. I wanted to review this webcomic because it's not good, and I have a bone to pick with Shelby because she was one of the ones who snaked her way into Homestuck's inner circle and ruined what could have been Webcomic's sole masterpiece.

I had to make an account just to complain about how bad this review get's sidetracked by a writer who spergs out about the use of singular "they" basically because of it's perceived proximity to social justice types. The review starts getting off topic by waxing philosophical about men and women for no reason that is actually necessary other than the reviewer felt like it. It then claims we never use singular "they" which is objectively wrong. English speakers have been using singular they for centuries. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singular_they
It also claims all developed languages have she/he pronouns for some reason, also wrong. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gender_neutrality_in_genderless_languages
Now all of this is suppose to be relevant because the characters in the story use gender neutral pronouns at all times. In the comic the humans were raised by an alien race that only has one sex so that seems to have influenced the way the kids use language. So the flimsy excuse the author has to vent about singular they is actually nonsense.
It could be better summarized as, "The authors are into social justice and they made all the characters gender ambiguous, including constructing a reason for them to never use gendered pronouns." Other than that their review is fine, they just need to stay on topic.

- You're right. I should explain, I did not write this review to rant about a singular they. That would be an incomprehensible level of autism I could not fathom. I made up half the review because I didn't really want to write it but I did it anyway because I had fun writing the first few that I made and I thought this would be fun too. It wasn't because I don't care about this webcomic in any way. So I had to pretend like I cared, and I eventually, unwittingly, made up a character for this review and it didn't translate well. It's really not a good look, so I'm deleting most of the review and slowly replacing it. Thanks Lt. Art Major (talk) 03:20, 12 May 2018 (UTC).
