Poor Image: Apathetic Citizens get usage counts

serial tweaker, sorry
Not only does the image on Apathetic Citizens have abysmal quality, I'm not even sure if it's an example (it's three guys being decidedly responsive and one who just seems grumpy about the economy), it isn't sourced, and I'd hazard a guess that it's also copyrighted since it seems to be a one-panel cartoon. I think it deserves a pull.

serial tweaker, sorry
In the meantime, I made two images from the Watchmen example: [1] and [2]. I'm not all that happy with them, but I think they (especially the one-panel) are better than nothing.

It would be best to have an image where the action is shown, not just narrated, but I couldn't find any so far.

No, the other one.
[up]The one-panel works. Not great, but it works.

I think the one panel is excellent, really. Can't see what's not great about it.

[up]Too much text-based. There's a little image to it, which makes it more than just a quotation, but it's still an image you read rather than look at.

Good one. I almost wished we had an image of people looking passively on a murder that's just happening.

I hate it. Like Duck said, it's just a quote with some little incidental brown. That's not an image.

The only thing that saves the one-panel Watchmen pic is the people looking out their windows. I think it's better than no pic, but I'd like to see something better.

[up] Still, if the ratio of text to image in any suggested pic is skewed towards the former, then I'm not in favor.

This isnt very good but there is noone rushing or yelling at all when Raye dies. He just collapes even though plenty of people saw.

[up] Y'mean page 9?

I dunno, looking at it, all you get of anyone other than Raye Penber is peoples' legs. Not really enough to illustrate apathy.

I'm with Willbyr on it; it's not unusable as there is a visual component, but it's hardly ideal.

How about we use the watchmen image right now as a cover until we find a better picture? Maybe the boondocks or black dynamite might produce results given the nature of them

[up] That's so horizontally squashed it's impossible to tell what's happening.

This is what it looks like unsquished... Seems it was cropped to a 16x9 image (going by how using that aspect ratio kept the FLUDD HUD a circle and not an oval), at the expense of the coin counter in the upper-left.

Still, the "Press ESC to leave fullscreen" kills the image. What video was this? We can try again.

[up] That would need to be at 350 px to tell what's happening, and I agree that the ESC notice in the middle makes it pretty much useless.
