The crowd here seems in danger of drowning.Gotoh wrote:It's more that not all cryptids are bad. Just as MC showed that not all AA students are necessarily "good".JoybuzzerX wrote:EC was all about that they're not bad.
No it didn't, it was never said how many victims there were and it was never said how many Marine was personally responsible for. Some of them may have simply been drowning victims (not unheard-of at beaches). All we have is Tiff's assumption.Storm-forge mystique wrote:the first of the two recent EC stories says outright that the cute mermaid girl has a substantial body count.

Well that's unfortunate, but as far as I can tell, no one here think's Lance is abusive. Irresponsible, by my count, but not abusive. (Note he doesn't use corporal punishment as far as we can tell.)tau neutrino wrote:I was thinking of Mrs. Hartley in VC, who got tarred as an abusive parent when she got mad at her daughter. Thinking about it, the only parents in the C-universe I've seen that hold to the "parent not a pal" philosophy and discipline their children are the Delacroixs. Maria even inflicts physical discipline.LegendaryKroc wrote:I don't think we're in any danger of that, although he's definitely a neglectful one, and it's a little late to start acting like a responsible one.
They didn't die because Tiffany and Tracy intervened. The previous victims were described as having drowned, in a suspicious pattern. Drowning is actually pretty rare at a public beach, esp. in Canada. There were 0-8 drowning deaths per million persons in 2012.

Problem is that this is set in Canada, not Japan.Lokitsu wrote:I think less neglectful parent and more that DC is following the manga trope of High school teenagers basically living on their own with their parents either being dead or just never appearing. I'm not sure if this represents something in Japanese culture or if its just more convenient if authority figures aren't around to put a halt to the wacky high-jinks.Cortez wrote:Yea, he's never around and Teddy and Abbie are pretty much by themselves and he only visits every once in awhile.
He's not physically abusive, but he is neglectful. Honestly, i wouldn't wonder why he bothered taking custody if he was never going to be around. Like, why not let his ex-wife have full custody?
Then again, some couples going through divorce see custody as a win/lose thing. Thankfully not all of them though.
No one died because two slayers were able to interrupt it. The implication is what about when they weren't around, at the previous drownings Tiff mentioned. Marine said the feeding ground was no longer safe, meaning she'd been feeding there (up the coast) before. 10 drownings a day from all sources is pretty in line with my link (9-14 per million in a country of 350+ million), and it's even lower in Canada.Gotoh wrote:I know. I read the story. It doesn't change the fact that no one died, nor does it change anything else. Drownings also aren't as uncommon as you seem to think.tau neutrino wrote:They didn't die because Tiffany and Tracy intervened.
I admittedly like that too, they don't sugar coat in here either, they make it very clear that if Chloe doesn't have sex she will die or kill Teddy. She's slowly losing it and doesn't realize it that much. It's kind of sad really, she may be a succubus, but she's a caring one and doesn't want to have sex with Teddy because she knows he will die if she does. She's pretty much sacrificing herself to keep him safe. I really hope she's able tp pick herself up in the end.Balancer wrote:A part of me is finding the shady stuff cringy but also validating because it's been a quite stark reminder that a) These creatures are classified as literal monsters by the rest of the world, and b) That hell is evil, like not even misunderstood, they are actually evil. After Erie Cuties and the early parts of this comic, well pretty much white washing that fact, it's nice (in an odd way) to be reminded that 9.9/10 these creatures are actually awful beings when the spotlight isn't on them and the comedy tropes aren't full force.
