Julia finds that, when she reaches sexual climax, men die. Off Girl, by Tina Fine and Mark Reihill, chronicles her quest for a non-lethal lay, to understand what is causing this problem, and (we’re told) become a superhero. But some storytelling problems are keeping us from getting off on this comic…
Dank, the goblin, flunks out of assassin school, answers an ad for an assassin, and is hired to be… a thief (although one who kills a lot). Rene Pfitzner’s Sneaky Goblins is well-drawn and interesting, but can we sympathize with the main character?
Tim and Mulele discuss both. And, will Tim catch up on the MCU?

One thought on “Critiquing Comics #156: “Off Girl” and “Sneaky Goblins””
It took a while for me to get back to respond this review. You guys really don’t understand Off Girl. She drops her meds, accidentally. She does everything she can to supress her libido. She went to see her friend in a bar, for help, not to pick up guys. She is not lonely. She fakes her O to have a relationship. “If you are not getting off, then what’s the point” — did you seriously just say that. THE MAIN POINT IS NOT SEX!!!! Orgasm is fullfilment and intimacy. JEEZ . You don’t need to show sex all the time. Now that there are 9 Issues, you can take a look, but I guess you won’t. No matter. Basically, you guys just don’t get it. Said my peace. Perhaps the only comment that was valid is that an editor is needed – however, the budget is really small . Last comment — there is more to a comic than showing a car crash. omg. OFF GIRL is the most original comic of its time. NO ONE, has done an orgasm trigger, and using that for good . You guys just don’t get it.
