Comments on Arthur B's Ferretnibbles 5 - Wrecking Elven Cities and Drawing Elf Porn
To read Tolkien using the word 'gnomes' - a word which still, for most people, conjures up images of colourful midgets in the garden - for elves brings back some of the weirdness that the word 'elf' must originally have had.
Tolkien has an ideology, and one which is rather alien to many modern readers, and that gives his work a distinct tenor. Whereas in most of the modern fantasy I've read, the heroes either save the world and look to a bright future within history, or it's just a story of personal success and glory. You do have your grimdark authors as well, your Abercrombies and the like, but I've yet to find anyone who shares Tolkien's simultaneous despair-within-history and hope-beyond-history.
So I'm curious if you just meant "there are more gay couples in the later strips", or if there was something else you were getting at? For the most part I read Oglaf as generically sex-positive - sex is fun, sex is normal, sex is a bit silly - and while you get more gay couples later on, nothing about the comic's overall view of sex seemed to change.
