Storming Heaven

<< < (2/7) > >>

Thread Zero:
Well I am an aspiring one.

That means I ain't sold a page let alone a whole screenplay.
Sob!

For what it's worth, I prefer Storming Heaven to Shakara.
I like them both, but so far I feel Storming Heaven has the greater potential. It just has more in it to chew over.

Shakara just does his Shakara routine and that's er..it. So far anyway.

But Storming H has oblique drug references, questions the very metaphysical nature of existence, redefines the timeless mythic story notion that is good versus evil and has lovely flowers and men with unfashionably long facial hair.

As for what the story is actually about, I haven't a clue!

I only read book 1 of Zenith, and that was a long time ago. I don't remember much about it so can you remind me where the similarity is with Storming Heaven?

Thread Zero:
Mangamax,

Zenith was:
People with obsessive personality disorder yet blessed with superhuman ability, seeking the need to either A) save the world or B) destroy it.

Storming Heaven is:

People with obsessive personality disorder yet blessed with superhuman ability, seeking the need to either A) save the world or B) destroy it.

Can't see the similarity myself.

Matt:
You can't criticise Stormin Heaven on that sole basis. It's about superheroes. What superhero comic isn't about saving the world or destroying it? When you boil it down to its basic premise that's the genre of the superhero.

nathan:
Scojo I'm none the wiser, I'm afraid.

What do you mean by "bbsessive personality disorder", isn't that when people have to keep checking they've turned the cooker off? Who has the disorder in Zenith and who has it in Storming Heaven?

What does "seeking the need" mean?

I'm not being picky, I really want to understand, because as far as I can tell the only similarity between the two strips is they have superheroes in them.
