The Comedy Plot, Toolbox Edition (part one)

Banes at 12:00AM, May 11, 2017

Hello again!

I'm gonna continue for the next two or three weeks about “The Comedy Toolbox” approach to comedy structure.

There is quite a bit of crossover between this method and other methods you've heard of. But that's probably a good thing; there should be some similarity ...

World Building Is Ubiquitous

image from The Art of Veiling, by yours truly

There have been posts before (I think) about how to go about creating a world, especially when it comes to fantasy settings. You’re supposed, if you want to do it right, to build everything that makes up the world in ...

The Use of Shadows

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, April 1, 2017



There are some comics where shadows don’t really exist- like Tintin where nothing casts a shadow at all. In other comics, shadows play a huge part, like Sin City. And yet in others they are just part of the natural environment of the comic and nothing more.

A True Scary Encounter

Banes at 12:00AM, Oct. 13, 2016



I continue to be an occasional fan of true scary stories found online. The “realistic” ones are cautionary tales, and might even give an important reminder to be on guard and keep one's eyes open…and the more unusual/“unexplained” stories are pretty darned entertaining and addictive!

Anyway, I ...

FEATURED COMIC -> Man Bun

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, July 27, 2016



Scapegrace needs a new lead singer… and who do they get? MAN BUN! What? Nooooo! But yes, Man Bun Fred looks like being their new official lead singer, mainly due to drummer Amber having a mega crush on him. Guitarist Katie seems mildly impressed but keyboardist Ivy doesn't like ...
