I was sitting at my desk and randomly remembered the one comic about the girl who could float and everyone fucking hated her, and that other one with the two soldiers who get attacked by an enemy tank

>the girl who could float and everyone fucking hated her
unrelated but why does that seem to be the focus of nearly every female wish fulfilment story?

>girl: i'm special!
>everyone else: FUCK YOU IN PARTICULAR FOR THAT REASON BUT ALSO FOR NO REASON FUCK YOUUUUUUUUUUU!
>>
Also I just realized the editor, Kazu Kibuishi, wrote this comic for scholastic that I read in 2008-- and the final volume came out this year. What the fuck.
>>143644943
lmao the best part was that there was a flood and everyone fucking dies, and her mom dies last and she has to watch-- and then the girl finally gets tired and drowns.
>>
>>143644902
>You guys remember these?
No. God I fucking hate indieshills so much. If your oh so precious ~ART~ rags were any good, they wouldn't be so obscure, and you would need to be an obnoxious cunt who shoves this trash in everyone's face. Fuck off already.
>>
>>143644902
Yes, and they were gr8/10.
>>
>>143645351
It's okay anon, you will muster the courage to kill yourself one day.
>>
>>143644902
Yeah, I scanned most of the comics a while ago and storytimed it but it seems all the images in desuarchive are dead. I should restorytime them sometime.
>>
>>143645003
I remember reading this as a kid. It was fun. I always imagined Emily sounding like Maka
>>
I remember seeing these in our small country's local book shop but I've never heard anyone talk about this comic series
>>
>>143646776
Guess that means any fan of this anthology a TRUE hipster. I only have the first 2.
>>
>>143645707
>Nooooooooooo!!! You HAVE to worship muh heckin indierinos!
Kill yourself. Indierags are inherently shit. No editor, no oversight, nobody to tell the drooling psycho scribbling their shit on the paper to knock it the fuck off. They are ALWAYS, invariably some kind of fucked up manifesto the "author" wants to push. Fuck you and fuck indierags.
>>
>>143647140
It's okay to admit you're le depressed, anon.
>>
>>143644902
Yesh they're neat. Not every comics in them is great but there's enough variety to hold your interest. I've got the first five of them from a used book store and one day I'll pick up the last few.
>>
I love these and I love the anthology format.

>>143647140
Grow up.
>>
>>143647140
Corporate cocksucking at it's finest, lmao
>>
>>143644902
I wish I wasn't so poor at the time. I remember reading these and another anthology series at borders when I was a kid.
>>
>that comic about the girl who gets buried alive in an immortality box

The tone of these comics varied WILDLY
>>
>>143648986
Anon was just molested by a hipster at the age of 4. He never recovered.
>>
>>143644943
Because it's accurate. Look at anything with a girl on social media
>girl: I can do this thing
>everyone: well you're doing it wrong. Or you're lying. Someone else helped you. Or you're a freak. Or you're not that special You're so full of yourself for thinking that's special. No one cares, why are you even talking about it?
>>
>>143649817
When you're dealing with media written by hacks, criticism is always deserved. And if it's something good...... do you know what trolling is? Were you born yesterday?
>>
>>143644943
>unrelated but why does that seem to be the focus of nearly every female wish fulfilment story?
Because the theme is usually accepting yourself despite the difference and not caring what people think
>>
>>143644902
Yes, I think I actually have one somewhere.
>>143649817
based and correct
>>
>>143644943
That describes male power fantasies, too.
>>
>>143644902
Yeah a friend of mine had all of these and let me read them. I distinctly remember a scene with a bunch of dimensional doors. Cool stuff.
>>143645003
I actually met him and got one of the volumes autographed years ago. Cool guy. Wonder if it ended well.
>>
Yeah, my first girlfriend got me a volume of Flight as a gift back in high school. Relationship didn't last long, but it was a nice present.
>>
>>143645003
>and the final volume came out this year. What the fuck.
Man, maybe I need to properly read through these now that I'm realizing how old I'm getting.

please read media beyond 90's Image comics and shit with big muscle guys.
>>
>>143651535
the protagonists weren't special in this story, the message is to never lower yourself to leftists
>>
>>143644902
I remember these being in just about every bookstore's graphic novel section back in the day. Never bought them though because they were on the pricier side for teen me.

Yes, I remember these.

The random collections of stories were nice, but it probably didn't help them sell very well. There wasn't really much motivation to pick up the next one since there was no ongoing story or even repeat characters. It was just a bunch of random comics, all somehow vaguely related to flying some of the time.
>>
>>143644902
Only a few of the story's where actually good
>>
>>143649739
In fairness getting diddled by a guy who won't fucking stop talking about Zap Comix has to be pretty traumatizing.
>>
>>143653695
I fucking LOVE science.
>>
>>143646521
>>143644902
Storytiming volume 2 here
