  • In 2007, Gaia Online decided to take advantage of their new cinema feature and enlisted an animation company to animate their Halloween plotline. After teasing us with works from 3d animation companies during the film festival, "MMVII Part 1: White Eclipse" was released. Even if you ignore the awkwardly implemented plot and horrible voice acting, you can't help but noticed how one of the characters appears to have come down with a horrible case of hemorrhoids. There's also the fact that after the Vampire protagonist kills a wolf and drinks its blood, they put plenty of blood on the inexplicable midsummer snow, yet forget to put it anywhere else. The Vampire's mouth, and the wolf's corpse are both blood free. And this is only in part one. Needless to say, Gaia reverted to a comic based story line, undid most of what happened during the animated shorts, showcased the best parodies of the shorts, and then tossed them into the bin of "Things we'd rather forget".
    • Unfortunately, some of that stuff still happened canonically. Vladimir seems to have been Killed Off for Real. Moira and Louie have been having some sort of light-switch relationship since then. So as long as we have plot coming out of that damn thing, there are going to be people who have to watch it for that material... unless, of course, Gaia has it remade as a manga in their usual art styles (hint, hint, Gaia staff).
  • MAD used to let several different artists draw the front cover, which almost always has mascot Alfred E. Neuman on it. Once, they let movie poster artist Drew Struzan do a cover, which turned out nightmare-fuelingly off-model. Sergio AragonÚs' two covers didn't fare much better.
