Could Have Been So Much More.
I'll start this review right off the bat by saying I only got into DBM for two reasons: The basic concept and the artwork. The former is a letdown because many universes are just such generic ideas (Oh wow, a universe where Bojack won. Oh look, a universe where Cell won. The creativity is just astounding!) There are only three universes in the tournament that seem interesting, and they barely get any attention. And the latter might not be a viable reason to like the series for much longer since Gogeta is leaving as the artist.
The main problem is the plot and story telling. Salagir's writing really isn't worthy of praise. The pacing is awful, not helped by the absolutely useless specials that break up the tournament plot. The specials give zero new information on the universes. Take the recent U13 special for example: Who the hell couldn't have figured out that Kakarot killed everyone on Earth? We didn't need to waste an entire chapter on yet another special where all the heroes are brutally murdered. Hey, here's an interesting idea, why don;t you show how the hell Vegeta and Kakarot became Super Saiyans?
Next the characters, good God does Salagir like to play favourites. He's perpetually jacking off to his little pet character Vegito and he's pretty much made Bra into his personal waifu Jerk Sue
. This wouldn't be so bad if the comic didn't seem to practically revolve around U16 (In addition to an entire fic all about Salagir's little pet universe), where all other characters that people are actually interested in get pushed by the wayside to shine the spotlight's on that asshole Vegito and his Jerkass
daughter. And don't even get me started on how badly they overhype Broly.
Characters like the Super Namek, or the Super Humans, or the Tech Warrior universe would all make for interesting plots/specials, but they BARELY get any screentime, and we know virtually nothing about them.
So in conclusion, if DBM doesn't get a decent replacement artist then the series will just plummet in popularity. The writing needs desperate improvement in pacing, and Salagir really needs to stop showering his Creators Pet
's with so much focus.
If you like it, fine, I can see some appeal. But personally I feel you'd be better off reading DBZ fic's like Honor Trip or Bringer of Death.
