She's not entirely incompetent, she's just painfully mentally unstable. It's an asset in that she can write believably fucked up characters, but it also stops her from doing as well as she could. Plus she's been doing this comic forever. She's probably burnt out to some degree and won't improve in certain areas because of emotional hangups she has. She doesn't want this to be a "furry" comic, so bobbleheads. She just wants to write slice of life right now, so the tone is jarringly unsuited to the subject material she's written herself into. I think with good therapy, a decent break, and a distinctive lack of suitcase, she could regularly turn out good content, but that's not the situation as-is.
It's honestly a lot like what the characters in the comic do most of the time. If they stepped back and thought things through, then they wouldn't have the problems they're having, but they're so hung up on bullshit that their vision is clouded and they can't make rational decisions. Every character in this comic is Taeshi to some degree.>>98946691
