Another cog in Nefcy's soulless machine.
Truly a slave to his passions no less than to the whims of his creator, but a man can dream and so he did, of the soulful sweetness that made Between Friends one of the only good things to come out of his show.
The real Marco in the TV series is a self absorbed beta male wannabe. Area's Marco actually cares about Star beyond a superficial attraction like TV Star has for Marco's abs. TV Star and Marco both have no substance, just like their creator Daron Nefcy.
As St. John of the Cross once said,>"Where there is no love, put love, and you will draw out love."
The very epitome of Starco's image as a cute and wholesome ship is no better personified than in Area's comic, creating an interpretation of the characters that trumps canon and creates something beautiful where canon has failed to.
