Use hashing like #### or //// to fill things in. This has the advantage of giving you control of how dark you want something to be.

I'd say roughly even at this point but there's still the Fall and Winter seasons to play for.

I didn't get into making comics until recently so the first is actually Level 30 Psychiatry's prototype proof of concept. Made with a fancy marker and coloring pencils about 6 years ago.

I shouldn't need to say anything else.

I think the crux is that replacing characters rather than establishing new ones is what's causing the ruckus. Frankly I think the source of the problem is Marvel killing off the multi-verse so they don't have safe grounds to test new ideas and then work them into the main series later. They just dive in at the deep end and suffer the consequences of backlash.

Lemme just lay out what the good and bad examples of Marvel's changes are IMO

Good Examples

Miles Morales aka Ultimate Spider-Man
The last big thing to come out of the ultimate Universe before the multi-verse collapsed. Ultimate Peter Parker went out with a bang, defeating Goblin and another young lad with Spider-powers stepped up to the plate. His series deals a lot with the idea of legacy and whether Miles is disrespecting Spider-Pete by doing what he does. When the universes combined, Peter Parker and Miles Morales were alive and had Spider-Powers at the same time but Miles still remembers the old world and keeps his motivation. Both Spideys operate at once so no-one's been replaced and both have their own issues to work with.

Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel and Kalama Khan aka Ms. Marvel
If I asked you who Captain Marvel is, you'd probably think of DC's one, now known as Shazam. Marvel had one for years but it was mostly a ploy to stop DC aquiring the full name rights. Marvel made better use out of Captain Mar-Vell's female counterpart Ms. Marvel so when DC finally gave up the Captain Marvel name, Mar-Vell was out of the picture and Carol Danvers got a promotion (even though her actual rank is higher than Captain IIRC). The new Ms. Marvel is a young Muslim girl but her religion isn't the main crux of her character (indeed she debuts enjoying the smell of hotdogs) and neither is she a straight copy of the old Ms. Marvel with her being a shape shiftier rather than a flying brick. She even tries copying the old Ms. Marvel directly before figuring that she has to be her own hero.

Bad Examples

Jane Foster aka "Thor"
Off the bat, Thor isn't his secret identity, it's his name. But that aside, this is an example of how leaving out details doesn't make an intriguing mystery. Thor loses his powers for... reasons? And suddenly a mortal has gained the powers of Thor. Who proceeds to deliberately keep their ID from everyone and what's meant to be a mystery riven story quickly becomes tedium. There's a reason that for 95% of heroes the audience is let in on who they are.

The Captain America mess
Turning Falcon into Captain America was confusing as he's already an established hero but what was really the mistake is when they brought Steve Rodgers back and then turning him into everything that he stood against. Imagine one of those Silver Age "Superman is now evil" stories dragged out over multiple issues. It's insulting to the audience who can see the tampered memories "twist" coming miles away and insulting to those who simply wanted their hero to return to active duty and fight alongside Captain Falcon (wait...).


I won't say anything on Iron Heart because I don't have enough experience with that series, though I will say it's dumb to have her headline the Iron Man comic rather than an Iron Heart one. If you can make a good character, they shouldn't need to piggyback off another's name like that. (What happened to Rescue BTW?)


What's important here is race is the most visible issue that people latch on to but what's happening is that Marvel comics is shaking things up, sometimes successfully, sometimes not and let's just say there's a reason comics are infamous for sticking rigidly to the Status Quo. Remember, Jason Todd was so hated for replacing Dick Grayson as Robin that he got killed off in a phone vote and they were both white males.

TLDR: Comics have always been adverse to change. Rasism and Sexism are secondary issues that are being blown out of proportion. Spider-Man Homecoming hinted at Miles Morales so there's that to look forward to.

Only for the obligatory Undertale joke.

I should mention, if anyone wants to make a guest comic but has no ideas for content, I have a few spare scripts you can use.

The correct phrasing would be "I have a sense of humor" as that both implies making jokes and being able to take them.

"I am funny"? That could mean anything from "I make jokes constantly" to "I slip and fall a lot" to "I work as a Circus Clown".

I'd describe myself as a comedy writer, and if presses, point out that Mr. Bean himself admitted to being a boring person IRL.

Wow, thanks so much. It's so pretty. Do you want both your comics linked in the Author comment or just the most recent one?

We're still uncertain of how long it'll take for us to get everything up and running again so any more art from anyone is still much appreciated.

Smaller fanarts are preferred as it's easier to collage them but feel free to go nuts.

Thanks to a bust tablet, we at Level 30 Psychiatry are hampered and we need some support until repairs are done. If you like the comic and have some spare time would you be willing to make some art to help fill the gap?

It can either be a full blown guest comic or a bit of fanart that we'll put into a collage. It doesn't have to be the greatest art ever (though that'd be pretty sweet.)

We can repay you in graitude, thank yous, shout-outs and subscriptions.

Either post here or PM me.

Thanks again.

Kyo: Is that a thing you can do? Just like, pay once with it?


It's not an explicit feature but you can be a Patreon for one month and then cancel if that's what you want to do.

I think Patreon is the way to go. At least that way I can say I have hosting costs and sound like I know what I'm doing with my life.
