Personally I think the art kind of loses something in the transition to fully coloured art. Or atleast this specific approach does. I dunno, it looks way too digital to me for a comic that originally had a great hand drawn look to it.

This is a floppy comic mini-series, Adam Warren doesn't do the art for these. They're done by other artists. He does the art for the main graphic novels.

This is pretty good, thanks for posting :D

I have a suggestion, though. Maybe shrink the pages a little. As they are, it's a little difficult to read them because you can't just scroll down, you have to move each page.

Yes, they're way too big for my screen.

Something about that armadillo seems really untrustworthy.
Plus, I love the kind of Silver Age feel this has, whilst still being decidedly modern. More comics need to be this colourful and bombastic.

I'm assuming you haven't watched Madoka...

It has some creepy Japanese sexualization of teenage girls. If that doesn't render it unwatchable for you, it was a game-changing examination of the magical girl genre (which La Soldado Del Amor is pastiche'ing). I can't say anymore because it's highly spoilerish. Watch until episode #3 before deciding whether you want to continue.

A high point for me is the use of abstract art and collage in different media to represent magical monsters and dimensions. It looks wonderful in animation:

I always thought this should be the solution for visual adaptations of Lovecraft.

It's a pangolin.
And they outright identify her earlier as a bargainer, so once she dies she'll still be around as one of the superundead

I enjoyed this series but I was hoping for someone to give the argument that love spells are essentially roofies. It just seems like the ramifications of this sort of thing are never taken into account

That does tend to come up in this series, to my immense disappointment because the series is otherwise really really good.

For instance, there was a character who had to power to create illusions that essentially mind-controlled people. His father mentioned that he "just used his powers to get laid," which was portrayed as a harmless boyish antic. I was like "hum... dude... that's rape."

There was also the incredibly awkward part - to me - at least, where we found that Spooky basically had sex with Thugboy in order to spite Emp in the future. Part of that is kind-of addressed in later volumes with Spooky's whole arc, and it does come across as the more.. Early-installment weirdness of that first volume - before Warren moved it away from more 'bondage jokes with a bit of story' to 'story with increasingly less bondage jokes because that shit would be legitimately traumatic'. But.. Still. That never sat well with me.

Although the asshole heroes of the series never really seem to fully get what they deserve in the series, given their shitty treatment of Emp; I did get some real enjoyment with the end of the last volume with that in mind, though.

Growing up in non-Spanish-speaking Latin America, the first anime I've ever watched were all retranslated from Mexican releases. As a result, the Spanish language for me is strongly associated with Sailor Moon and Saint Seiya and all others. It's therefore enormously pleasurable for me how this series has avoided the cheap cop-outs of American comics monolingualism; rather than putting English between brackets with a crummy "translated from Spanish" note, it openly features proud, unapologetic, actual Spanish dialogue. It reminds me of European comics (like Isabel Kreitz' Die Sache mit Sorge, where in a single book German characters speak German, English English, and Japanese Japanese, with nary a footnote in sight.)
