LISTEN!

Photocomics don't get nearly enough love. A while ago Banes did a great newspost on the subject where he did some great little promotional reviews of some prominent photocomics on DD. I thought that was a cool idea and I've been meaning to return to the subject ...

Every now and again, an acquaintance or friend who ain't as deep in comics culture and creation as I am (which is to say they ain't really got much of an idea about comics but have seen the Sunday funnies page and know that Batman is a thing ...

The Impracticality of Being Practical

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, March 13, 2017


The Businessman, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

I have a certain level of disdain for people who believe that comics and art in general are merely hobbies. When I was much younger and on the receiving end of advice from many well-meaning grown-ups, the word “practical” and the phrase ...

Them's the rules, bub.

HyenaHell at 12:00AM, March 3, 2017



Well last week we had chaos and disruption, so reckon it's high time we reestablished some order around here. And to do that ya need rules, right?

Rules. Yeah… Oh boy.

MARDI GRAS ATE MY HOMEWORK

HyenaHell at 12:00AM, Feb. 23, 2017



Unless you live in one of a handful of places scattered across the globe, either still sucking on the dregs of medieval Catholicism or entrenched in the aftermath of colonialism, Carnival probably means jack shit to you. Or maybe it does, but it's likely not an entity in and ...

Boring Heroes, Fun Villains

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Feb. 4, 2017



It’s something so often encountered and/or mentioned in stories (be they comics or novels or film) that it’s becoming in itself a cliché: Heroes aren’t interesting because they’re straight arrows. Villains are fun because they’re the ‘bad boys’, the ones that can do all ...

HippieVan at 12:00AM, Jan. 20, 2017



A little comic by Vasya Lozhkin: “I will take revenge”

Earlier today I was reading this article about an immigrant to Canada who learned English with the help of comics, and who now creates comics himself. It got me to thinking about what a great resource comics are for learning ...

FEATURED COMIC --> Unfruity and Nonchalant

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Jan. 18, 2017



Unfruity and Nonchalant is the product you would get if you mixed a Keith Haring painting in a bowl with absolute cuteness. The simple style tells a quick story in one, two, three, or four panels while only using a single color (now THAT is talent!). The text dialogue is ...

When Death Comes…

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 12, 2016



No matter what the genre, plot and general tone of your comic, death always is absolute.
