Okay, somebody tell me... why are we following Abbey's progression from mere idiocy to sociopathic idiocy and Teddy's endless degradation into a sextoy for the use of the jocks who used to beat the tar out of him when he was a normal nerd, when we could have fun reading about Abby and funny dimension-tripping monster-slaying shenaningans and ocassional futanari sealife sexy escapades...?
Probably because it’s much easier to imagine the idea of a good story than it is actually to write one. This comic is hardly unique in demonstrating that; a whole lot of geek-favourite properties, from Doctor Who
and Star Wars
to The Prisoner, Blade Runner 2048,
are brilliant in our heads because of the way they’re described and sold, but then turn out to be a bit pants on screen or the page.
(I mean, generally much better than DC, obviously, but still not as good as the thing we’ve been led to expect.)

Seriously, with all the things she's gotten into and her investigative abilities, when is Naomi going to get invited to Artemis Academy?

Maybe she missed her chance because her abilities weren't shown before a certain age?
Or a certain interrogator has prevented it, be it as part of her breaking regimen or to "keep Naomi safe". :rolleyes:
