I’ve been having some pretty philosophical discussions with Ratfist creator Doug TenNapel. Some of them include:
– The role of science and religion in society.
– Etymology of the English language.
– Ultra-Cons vs regular moderate Conservatives.
– Climate change.
– What angels would really look like and why.
– Optimism vs realism.
Granted, this is mostly in the comments below the comic, with a dozen other people. But Doug and the readers are probably some of the more engaging people I’ve ever discussed anything with. You can tell that half of this crowd is actually intellectual. And he actually responds to most conversations, taking time to actually contribute personally.
Which is the sign of a great artist. Those who take time to integrate themselves with their readers and actively participate usually succeed where other comic people fail. Granted, he’s a bit of a
Conservative dick argumentative person, but that’s nothing new or unusual. XD
