    Holding up a 25 year old CG cartoon, one of the earliest of it's kind, as the artistic lockbox that all future intepretations need to adhere to is a pretty wild want. That cartoon visuals are so dated that it's practicaly a stylized artstyle.

    On a personal note, it's also 100% not what I want out of this comic series. The thing about the original cartoon is we already got it. It happened and it's complete and while it's not perfect, it's good enough that I don't need any kind of replication of it. They nailed it the first time, no redo necessary.

    Honestly this series already hews too close to the original, what with coopting the highly specific premise presented by the show. The further they can get away from that, the better. (And so far, they've done enough that I'm very interested in seeing where it goes.)

    Plus there's the fact that this Megs may realize he's made some kind of horrible mistake, if that message on the disk a few issues back is anything to go by.

    And let's not forget this is a substantially different Earth with freaky-deaky, possible Vok-created organisms. If it's even Earth at all.

    Most importantly, we can't neglect the addition of best girl Nyx.

    Don't you taunt me with the idea of more guys using the Enigma of Combination.

    Nah they just got rid if it. That last cover concept is actually hilarious given the events of the issue.
