Is it just me or has RA's general idea/plotline/feel died? The original senseless randomness seems to have all but disappeared... but it hasn't really been replaced by anything since. There have been a few story plots like Cancer and the aliens, but it seems like there just isn't any more new material. Just re-hashes of previous scenes every week and (the ever annoying) guess artist submissions.
I might be coming off as an ass, and I'm genuinely sorry to hear that, but you have to admit it's been awhile since Zee Captain has argued with skeletons and has been worshiped as Lemonade, or that Snippy has done anything other than being immersed in the Biomass as of late. In short, I just haven't been seeing much of the lighthearted/dark humor that got me originally interested in Romantically Apocalyptic.
I'd say if anything RA has more plotline now than ever it did in the beginning. Just because they're showing off a little story and background etc about the main charactres doesn't make Captain any less weird or Pilot less insane or anything. It just takes a few panels to show the story is all. I guess Captain will be back in more focus later and he'll still be talking to skeletons and make Snippy fly with ballons and similar stupid thing. Besides, if you didn'tknow, Alexiuss isn't at home. How can you then expect the same type of art all the time? I'd like to see more of the realistic styled are too, but I don't mind the guests.
It sounds like you dropped off right around the time Vitaly's computer died, to be honest... there hasn't been a rehash of previous scenes at all. Are you reading it on dA or are you reading it on the website? You sound a bit behind.
And I don't find the guest submissions "annoying" at all. RA isn't just a comic, it's a COMMUNITY. And the big thing about it is that it's versatile. It can be serious, it can have dark humor... and then there's the huge plot behind everything, if you're paying attention enough.
Really good comics grow with their community. I don't see any of the dark humor being lost lately. Especially in the last plot, with Snippy and the mug.
RA is everything that originally got me interested and more. If you have suggestions, make them. But please at least be constructive. They work very hard on this comic and love it very much... remember that and you won't have to worry about coming across as an ass.
