Marry Me
« on: June 10, 2008, 05:22:22 AM »
Most comics - popular-and-not-horrible comics, that is - suffer from the same malady: excellent artwork and bland text. "The Phoenix Requiem" is a good(I mean, bad, for me, at least) example; there are many more. But, drifting between beautiful and boring, I found this little gem: Marry Me, a graphic novel. It's very simple, the plot revolves about one event and four(so far) major characters, but it makes an impression just the same. It's popular because of the same reason "Pretty Woman" was popular: all characters feel alive.

I don't quite understand why it's copyrighted only by the writer, and the artist isn't even mentioned on the main page, but, well, lucky writer, I guess.

I recommend it.


And, yes, Dungeon Crawl and Elf Only Inn forever, etc.

Nice.

Thanks for the tip, Kulyok.

No, I'm not saying anything on 'Pretty Woman'.

Yeah, I actually spotted that one when I was casually looking around after voting for Dungeon Crawl in the webcomix contest a few months back.  That was definitely the most interesting one to me out of all of the others.  I didn't read more than the first few issues then, but it was still the best drawn and most interesting out of the lot, IMO.

And for the record, I usually despise anime art.

Aaand it ended, and the ending was... mmm, not so good. But they can make a good romantic comedy out of it. :)

Yeah, a tiny bit disappointing, I didn't expect it to end so fast, but...
 ;D Heh. I'm still a sucker for happy endings!

Thanks for the link Kulyok, I loved it. :)  I'd go and see the movie, and I hate those sort of movies.
