Hey, I'm just a simple cartoonist. I make a (not usually) weekly webcomic called "Madness, With A Side Of Relish." Feel free to do whatever you want with my work, as long as you credit me. It would also be greatly appreciated if you gave your thoughts and criticisms.

The Forest is always waiting for those who are unfortunate enough to venture in. What it does with those unfortunate souls is unknown, but many whisper of strange creatures, which were once men and women.
Anyway, this is definitely the biggest piece I have ever posted to DA, which is kinda fitting seeing how my first anniversary is coming up. I might do something, might not.
Now, I'm not one that usually gets hyped about things, but the trailer for the Netflix's "A Series of Unfortunate Events" was released recently. I am a huge fan the books, and I have been looking forward for this serious since I first heard about it. So what do I think? I'm . . . intrested
You may have noticed my less than enthused attitude. I mean, I'm properly still going to watch the show when it eventually comes out, but nothing in the trailer really made me excited for the show. Still, I thought it would be fun to make a quick post about my thoughts on the trailer. Oh, and if you haven't read the books already (which, you totally should) just be warned that there is potential spoilers for the series in the trailer and in this post.
#1- The Look
First off, the look of the show is spot on. I think the slightly cartoonish, yet monotone and somewhat sinister feel of the visuals of the show are a perfect fit for the tone of the series. The set design looks great, and the slightly cheap CGI actually adds to the atmosphere even more. The makeup and costume design looks great, and from a purely visual perspective, the actors are perfectly casted.
#2- The Humor
While I wouldn't necessary call the books funny, they definitely did have a engaging sense of humor. If I was to describe the humor of the books simply, I would say that most of the humor focus on the bizarre events in the Baudelaire's life, and the characters either ignoring or being part of the madness. The humor in the books was subtle and quirky, while the show's is much more loud and in your face. This just might be because it is a trailer, and in all fairness, the jokes weren't bad, but they weren't really funny either, and didn't really fit with the books tone. Oh, and I can't get over how weird it is to have Olaf casually mention the internet. Speaking of Olaf.
#3- Olaf the Clown
To me, the biggest problem with the trailer, is the fact that the Neil Patrick Harris is just too damn likable. To best describe Olaf from the book, I would say that it would be Hannibal Lector through the lens of a Saturday morning cartoon. Sure, he was goofy at times, but he was also sinister, and the audience is meant to completely hate him. Again, maybe it will work when the show comes out, but my initial reaction is negative.
Conclusion There is some other small things I could mention, like how they are bringing some later elements of the series into the story earlier, and the small things they added, but I've probably bored 99.9% of you already. Again, I'm still interested in the show, but I won't lie, I'm skeptical of it turning out great.
