Now, well into middle age, when I play Dungeons & Dragons with teenage boys, I avoid criticizing them for their cringeworthy characters because mine were much, much worse at that age.
No man should be held accountable for his creative content when he was a teenager, and that includes Zach Cranor of Last Place Comics. Back in his confused, pre-internet youth, Slipknot was cool. Bloodvein understood and Zach’s girlfriend, Crimson Twilight, agreed wholeheartedly, largely because she was born with a Slipknot birthmark. Zach played their music, she felt compelled to kiss him with her whole mouth. All real girlfriends act this way.
