190 - Netflix's One Piece w/ Alex Degen and Alec Robbins
OK and Sarah are joined by two of our absolute favorite cartoonists Alex Degen and Alec Robbins to discuss One Piece both as a comic😤 and as content😩. Alec’s fantastic thread on the “corporate experiment” that is Netflix’s One Piece prompted this excellent convo on art education, WGA/SAG actions, and flattening of culture that happens online. Alex and OK also endorse interesting live action adaptions that happened via ice and in kabuki. We want ART not YOUTUBE BYPRODUCT. We want DIGNITY not SLOP!! They are trying to feed us BUGS when we need REAL FOOD that will nurture our souls and lift our spirits. Isn’t that what One Piece is truly all about??

New President, same bullshit, but perhaps slightly more annoying given the faux progressive pandering. Not to mention the cultural pandering! No matter how communal an aesthetic might feel, there’s always some asshole willing to sell it off to the political class. Hope everyone gets their half a vaccine so we can at least become cool mutant creatures before we go.
