It’s book is out, I will read it later but for now have YaBoi’s take:

Can be read here:
So the main character is just Gabby's self insert again, the disease makes no sense and I doubt it ever will. Also she has a pet alligator and suddenly superpowers. There's also a big undercurrent of "fuck you dad!"

It's also trying way way to fucking hard to be hip, woke, and hispanic to the point where all three come across as painfully forced.

Holy shit, that first two pages is exactly what goes through the mind of every 13 year old girl when she starts her first tumblr blog.

Finished reading it, i didn't like it.

Our Pod-People Protagonists, BB (Fatty) and X-Acta (Cripple):

Basically Fatty and Cripple want to start a radio and go explore the broken states (good luck cripple girl) and bb’s dad is against it:

The art is a mixed bag, mostly bad. The coloring is painful to look at for longer than a few seconds SPECIALLY on Cripple:

There was this scene that was specially bizarre, she breals a rule and a guy scolds her while saying he’ll keep it a secret if she replaces the sign. Her reaction makes absolutely no sense and seems unreasonably hostile to someone doing her a favor by keeping quiet:

Also this is a post apocalyptic world where mother nature “got tired of being a good girl” and killed the 1%-ers, then 60% of the population and this somehow crushes capitalism:

Blah blah blah she has powers out of nowhere and the dad might know what’s up:

Since dad is being over protective and throwing her shit in the swamp she uses her powers on him:

I love how all these fat chicks and emaciated soy boys who never worked a day in their life act like they would survive in a world where capitalism doesn't exist.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL. These are the same people who couldn't function without e-begging and trust funds, so the moment the debit card that mommy gave them becomes useless, they'd start behaving like extras in The Purge.

Isn't Gabby a bit out of touch there - I'm sure there are some kids out there who want a radio show, but surely a podcast or youtube channel would be more realistic?

edit: I've not read the comic, so for all I know electricity and/or internet could be gone?
They have electricity and can communicate over long distances but everything except for a few things look like 3rd world living conditions. Like for example, here is Fatty's workplace and home:

And although we don't see her house, Cripple has this Dexter's Lab rip-off:

They don't seem to live that far from each other either:

So I have no clue what is the current state of technology in this world.

Aw, be fair. An obese pig like Gabby could survive for a month just on her body fat!

"Bad worldbuilding" is the answer.
Seems like a typical Latin American country to me.

Hmm, with all that tech I'd say it's a fair bet that pod or vodcasting would be possible, so why wouldn't the character want that?
Maybe I'm just sperging on for no reason, but in a fictional setting why would a character want to be on the radio instead of a vod or podcast? Like in real life I wouldn't find it surprising if a kid wanted to be a radio star, but for a comic I thought the current equivalent would be more relatable etc... is Gabby just old?
I guess 80s nostalgia is still "in" right now, if you've read the book does the character like retro stuff?

Just read it, feels so strange that they wanna do a radio show and leaves me with several questions. 1. How are they going to broadcast country wide since the radio towers nearest to them were broken until they fixed them? They're just broadcasting to the area surrounding them. 2. Even though they apparently have some real future shit, as evident by the cripple's little Bother Eye work station (and hovering wheelchair? Unclear) why are the using radio towers? 3. How are these broadcasts being picked up?

Would it kill the artist/writer to just include some radios prominently in the background? That would work towards building the world and making more evident to the readers what technological norms are here, because it's really unclear. They somehow have working electricity, so thank god the plague didn't kill everyone who knew how to build and work turbines in this post apocalyptic world. Also, they live in a swamp. Maybe it's because I'm not from a swampy area, but is there much growing you can do in a swamp? Where are they getting all this food?

Finally: the year is 2236 if i remember correctly; why do the characters speak with 201X slang? TBH, FTW, IDK, slang terms that are already old for us, along with just general language that is very this decade. Something that tends to help a world feel more organic is if the slang is reflective of the world they live in. Example: early on in the exposition about the plague that killed a large portion of the population, for some reason targeting the "greedy" (read as, people who develop skill sets that pay well) which, fine, it's fiction, I can roll with that. Why, 200 years in the future do they use the term "the 1%"? Feels like one of those things that would have evolved in that time, become a new term. It's not even like there seems to be a fear or a hatred of this 1%, at least not overt in the same way there's fear or hatred of other groups in most post-apocalyptic fiction where a group or faction are blamed for all the problems in the current world whether justified or not.

That's not even getting into the art which makes Steven Universe look like Monet somehow.
