Love Is Hard I finally finished the new BANG issue (digital download will be available soon) and finally had the freedom to do whatever I wanted. Instead of getting farther in Bayonetta or watching any of Over The Garden Wall, I wound up writing this all weekend. This is something I really have been thinking about for many years. I had the sudden realization recently that the same belief of writing I had about "getting to know" your characters also applied to the depiction of love. It was something not many people realized or thought about. I had to cut off the article somewhere and couldn't use half the examples I had. Mordecai and Margaret appear at the end because that was an example of character growth being applied -- eventually the RS staff realized Margaret wasn't going anywhere and replaced her with Cloudy Jane. Adventure Time isn't afraid to experiment either....they started out trying to bring Finn and Princess Bubblegum together, only to change that direction when Peebles grew as a character and became too cold and calculating for it to work with Finn. EDIT: Just saw "Eileen Flat-Screen." So Margaret is back? Ugh. I had paragraphs and paragraphs in my head about Joe Quesada. No room.
