First off, something positive; the character design in the Vegan Artbook is really nice. Most characters are aesthetically pleasing, and there are even some variations in eye shape and facial structure. Looking nice is the only thing going for this, though. There is no plot, and no attempts at characterization. Worst of all, this comic fails as propaganda. Aside from the numerous factual inaccuracies mentioned on this site, Priya fails at making her protagonists more sympathetic than her antagonists. It's Shawn, the meat eating main antagonist, that has the most physical abuse heaped on him, it's Shawn who was rejected by his sisters and girlfriend for his diet, and so it's Shawn and the other omnivores who gets the most sympathy compared to the inhumanly perfect vegans, who never make mistakes or get angry or do anything that would serve to make them relatable. When the guy who disagrees with your message is your most sympathetic character, it really hurts whatever point you're trying to make, since one is more inclined to agree with characters they like.
Truer words have never been spoken.
Unfortunately, the fans of said series are too crazy to ever listen to reason.
Writing a sympathetic vegan wouldn\'t be true to life unless they got the rights to use the name and likeness of Bryan Danielson.
I\'ve noticed that about a lot of militant vegans. There\'s just...this smug sense of rectitude worthy of a religious fundamentalist who\'s convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that you\'re going to hell.
