The comic then covers the two girls adapting to their new lives, particularly with their knowledge of their original ones and, in Ash’s case, complete lack of knowledge about her new one, whilst Rumisiel works to get back into the filing depository to sort out their misfile.As time goes on, they develop new situations in the world as well as new understanding with themselves and others.Initially for example, Ash has to come to terms with being female, whilst Emily copes with losing all her hard effort and starts to doubt if it was ever worth pursuing when she found little fulfillment in it.
Other angels have appeared in the series, building up a kind of conspiracy theory plotline that whilst it does seem important, is rightfully kept off to the side while the comic focuses on the very mortal main characters.
So, time to put my review hat on and cover the standard points. Having had eight years to progress, Chris’ art has rightfully and properly advanced.
It’s mostly in the fine-tuning details that one barely notices over time, but the difference between the first and latest pages is marked.
Misfile is a long-running comic by Chris Hazelton and his wife Third-Child, produced regularly since 2004 and currently releasing a page every weekday.
Considering this has been managed for such a long period despite various family commitments, hospital emergencies, and indeed even pregnancy and birth of their latest son, that alone I think qualifies them for a feature.
But don’t be discouraged if you think I’m just giving them a pity-review of somesort, Misfile is actually worth checking out.
The story focuses dominantly on three main characters: Ash the racing fanatic, Emily the scholar, and Rumisiel the pot-smoking angel.
While your head kind of reels from that last one, I’ll explain: At the start of Misfile, Rumisiel smokes some pot whilst on the job at the celestial filing section of heaven that determines all manner of details that go on down on Earth.
This event is what creates the whole situation that continues Misfile and brings the characters together.
