Nemi Appreciation thread

#1 Posted by SC (12951 posts) - - Show Bio

Hopefully I am allowed to create an appreciation thread for Nemi. Shine a little spotlight on this very cool character. Plus a place for those who may be curious about her to come and learn and find out more. I like Nemi, I think she is a kind of character that can make you feel a little bit better after reading a story with her in it. Sometimes when I stand out in the fields alone, on a starry night, I like to think about things about things, like what are those little shiny things in the sky? Holes in the night? Some people like to refer to them as "stars", but I like to refer to them, as very small Night Suns. Nemi is like that too. Childlike. I also like to think of ways to troll people in a as polite and non offensive way as possible. Just like, you guessed it, Nemi. Probably the best, and by best, I mean laziest way to help one of you random people get to know her better is to put up some small comic strips of her being herself, as follows. (yey threads with pictures) Plus if you like what you see, she has books you can buy too! Need help with details I can help, just ask. ^_^ 

 




 
Nemi likes Video Games, almost obsessively? Cool. Reason number one to appreciate her. She is also willing to eat fruit off the ground. Sounds like a cheap date. Reason number two!

Its the government thats why my gun toting avatar friend. Nemi is a slacker of sorts, and therefore the "Man" doesn't like her ways and messages of uh stuff... like sleeping in and around.  
 
Also Nemi is against the whole government influenced and projected generalizations of fake and shallow beauty standards which cause like 6 year old boys to get boob, and hair jobs to look like Baywatch women. Nemi says no!

Who do you think would work well teamed up with Nemi? I think the following Marvel and DC characters would -  
 
Domino 
Gothic Lolita 
Teenage Negasonic Warhead 
Blue Marvel 
Death of the Endless  
Galacta 
 
Do you agree? Do you disagree? Do you flat out gree?

Spidey.

There really isn't a major player that's similar to her enough.

@SC: Nice thread! I love the opening post and the first two strips. She seems really interesting and more human than most characters in comics these days. She has craziness I can relate to ^_^

I agree, being able to relate to craziness, helps us realize we are sane. Or something. *goes back to researching the Dragon Robots from Mars 8 who have implanted themselves in the minds of all the worlds leaders in an attempt to rob the Planet Earth of their most valuable resource, the Banana*

The other day whilst I was running away from the police I started thinking about how awesome it would have been to live thousands of years ago, when dragons were around. This reminded me of this Nemi cartoon strip. Also more people have been asking for places to view Nemi comics in English. There is the Metro website, but they don't have a back catalogue, and a lot of the best Nemi strips were in the past, just like the dragons. So I will post some strips here for those people. Plus ask more questions, like what sort of dragon do you think Nemi would train and ride? One like Toothless? Barney? Blue Eyes White Dragon? Fing Fang Foom? Also, if you knew someone online, that likes you, would you post them bail via paypal? Food for though... 
 

 
Oh, and also,

@hydrabob:  You have a good sense of humor, I'll mark that as a win for Nemi!  
 
@warlock360:  Thats definitely the best nomination so far for the If "Nemi Was A Lesbian Which Conceptual Entity Should She Be A Lesbian With!" category.

I don't know about the characters you named, SC, but I'm pretty sure that a team-up of Nemi and BB (you know who I'm talking about) would not end well.
 
BB would probably butcher Nemi and leave her in a bloody heap after about 3 panels.  :D

I should have known you'd make one of these, SC ;)

#15 Posted by Jotham (4564 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd never even heard of her, but SC seems to love her, so I guess she's okay.

#16 Posted by aztek_the_lost (28224 posts) - - Show Bio

I've added dozens of her comics to the site!

@SC: yeah these are really good, but I've never seen one of her comics before.
#18 Posted by RazzaTazz (9587 posts) - - Show Bio

Definitely pretty funny, whenever I see her I think of SC, which is kind of weird though because he's not a girl.

You probably would like Nemi, Jotham, since you go for the more cartoony style of art. 
 
 
She's at about the same popularity level as Johnny Ryan's Angry Youth stuff...but with a lot more couth.

Actually, Razza, when I first started posting to SC...I thought HE was a girl. 
 
 
I even thought that there was a possibility that he was the artist who drew Nemi.

@SC: what would you recommend if someone wanted to buy a Nemi book, but could only get trades?
#23 Posted by kfhrfdu_89_76k (3723 posts) - - Show Bio

I like her, even if she`s also mean.

That is awesome. Nemi is pretty alright. I can post more pictures later when I wake up. I have to go to sleep now, so I can wake up in time for midnight.
