Also, here is the first page of my Snowflame fancomic:
Sorry this was finished later than I intended it to. Here is the text version, with intentional crappy word balloons to echo the warrior comics. There are some refs thrown in too.
The color and the space nebula, they remind me of a folder I had when I was in high school, except there were wolves on it instead of enraged muscle men
Its tumblr post is here, if that's your thing.^-^

R.I.P. Warrior. Your wondrous insanity will never be forgotten.
This is awesome. So this is where The Warrior gets his crack from.
The reason is the same reason I won't introduce Expies of Raoul Puke or of Brad's stoner friends: I don't want to condone or encourage the use of drugs by portraying drug users in a lighthearted and/or comedic fashion.
And yeah, I know that I have Suika, but I personally believe alcohol to be a lesser evil than drugs.
That said, why is alcohol a lesser evil than drugs to you? Just because its culturally accepted, despite the number of road accidents, as well as domestic issues it can create? In that case, I would ask you to reconsider your position.
First of all, alcohol and drugs aren't good or evil, or degrees thereof. They're inanimate objects, and putting them in a good or evil binary deceives people to what they really are, chemicals to evaluate benifit versus potential danger.
Also, labeling something as evil is just as likely to attract people to doing something. It glamorizes it, and there will always be people who are attracted to doing something because it comes off as taboo. Not labelling things to a black/white dichotomy is better, because then the only way left to evaluate them is to their benefits vs. risk.
Not only that, but labelling things outside of a culture as evil infringes on the rights of other cultures.
Mescaline and coca leaves are two drugs that don't distort emotions, cause violence, aren't addictive, and you can't overdose on them. Mescaline is important in some native american religions. Coca leaves, because they alleviate pain, hunger, weakness, and altitude sickness, are crucial to some south americans way of life.
But because of their origin in native cultures, they are considered pagan and evil, and have mixed legality and get attacked by anti-drug legislation that groups them with dangerous narcotics even though they are absolutely less dangerous than alcohol.
So anyway, do what you like with your writing, but consider updating your good/evil philosophy in regards to inanimate objects. I'm not trying to beat up on you, but I do defend my work when someone labels it as socially harmful. The above illustration is just funny, and that's all there is to it, but I do write about SnowFlame in <href="[link]">my webcomic, which shows his addiction also as dangerous and potentially unsustainable (the doubt is because of his super powers.)
Two insane incoherent babbling maniacs duking it out on some alternate reality that makes no sense whatsoever. Space is warped, time is bendable and there is way, WAY too much narration that somehow contributes absolutely nothing and leaves you MORE CONFUSED.
I. LOVE IT.
AT THE SAME TIME!!!!!
Also... kick his spluttering ass, Snowflame!!!
