    You know, I like where this is going, if this cute little comic relief loli actually becomes a serious and traffic death, I like that turn of events.
    (Is this the place for this, idk) But like, I’ve been thinking about the older days of this comic and I’m kind of saddened by this page? It kinda succinctly summarizes a lot of slow but steady artistic, narrative and atmospheric problems we’ve seen over the last few years in one page.
    Ok, I love this comic a lot, it’s a big part of my childhood and a huge part of my personal art development, and since I’ve been feeling really nostalgic for the older days of grim tales, I just felt like actually making a little comment. I’m way past it but I still like talking about it.
    I feel like we’re at a place where the comic is just here and we all know it’s not good anymore. The story is what it is now and that’s fine, grim tales was never really grounded or conventional in story telling, lbh. But at least it was taken more seriously? There was a gravity and a gloomy air to it that drew you into the bizarre happenings and the tale of Minnie Mandy and Grim jr. (The edginess is gone but not really but it’s also boring too now??)
    In this page, a few things happen, a wide-eyed, mainly silly kid character is hurt, possibly killed, the current antagonist is subdued with specially made weapons, But IT looks So Flat. I remember older pages taking points like this slower and with more hit to them. I can’t think of any examples rn but where’s the drama, you know? Where’s the heavy framing, the dialog to match, even the lighting is just bland. Things like coloring don’t reflect how serious these events might turn out. I’m reminded of how boring the jr. and granada reaper’s pep talk was. The art is one small part of it (still amazing but not as impactful) but this whole story is just really really watered down in terms of attitude, thematic grip and stylistic uniqueness. If all it’s going to be is light funny meme shit, then whatever. I’m still attached, ofc, but yeah, those are my opinions. Sorry lol

      “lbh”? That stands for “Let’s be honest right?

      I’ve never seen anyone use that.

      The GTFO is planned to connect to the main plot. Though, obviously not shown yet.
      Such a drastic shift to what happened in the previous chapter to this doesn’t help, we understand. The writer for this chapter is different from the other chapters too, which also has an impact on flow and tone. Without any knowledge to the future of this comic and no contact with the previous writers, the current writer did what they could.
      Primary reason why this chapter is happening NOW is because Bleedman wanted to take time to collect critiques from fans and utilize them to the best of his abilities and fix up the story where he can.
      None of this is a justification and I am not trying to change how you feel. I just wanted to explain the situation and clear up some possible confusion.
      I’ll give Bleedman your review! Thanks for taking the time to give your thoughts, we really appreciate it and hope you continue to read the comic.

        I wasn’t expecting any response honestly, thanks nonetheless! I actually came back to see if I could ask to have my comment removed. I never ment it in a bad way, of course, I just feel like it could be better.
        I figured the current writer isn’t having any direction from past writers or knows the plan in the long run, I understand. I’ve been following the comic since maybe early chapter 3 and it just gives me a lot of enjoyment reading it again, which is what made me think so much about current pages. I hope grim tales or any other of his comics haven’t become a project Bleedman or any crew feel has become a harsh pressure to make. I know what that’s like.
        In any case, thank you for your reply, I could never do what he does. GTFDB will always have a special place in my heart.

          We generally only delete comments if it is obviously problematic or if there are unnecessary arguments, derailing from conversations outside of the comic itself could also be considered as such since it was deemed as a problem in the past. We don’t consider your comment bad whatsoever! We understand that there are fans that are upset and are trying to improve where we can. We may not be able to make everyone happy, especially considering how long it’s been since GT started and the different writers coming on board.
          We really do hope that you continue to support the comic, even if it’s for nostalgia purposes or just to see how it finally ends.
          Bleedman appreciates all his fans even if he can’t say it himself most of the time.

    Hm. There seems to be consternation in the comments. Deleting the argumentative things and muting offenders as I see fit.

    honestly this is kinda poetic since in my understanding this is the only fate for characters such as her.They either join the dark side or fall into a monochrome abyss.They can never be the stars of something forever.
