Buying In

Banes at 12:00AM, June 2, 2016


I'm all in!
Poker reference.


We've all read comics that grab us and get us invested completely in what's going on. And we've read others that don't do it for us. Most are probably somewhere in between, with hits and misses. Such is life.

And ...

Mentors

Banes at 12:00AM, May 12, 2016



I like mentor characters.

This is not just me of course; the mentor and protagonist relationship is powerful. Some of the best moments in many stories are the first encounter with the mentor, the training and sense of discovery for the protagonist, and the eventual loss of the mentor character ...

Coloring Outside the Lines

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, May 2, 2016

Quackcast 257 - Accents in Comics

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Feb. 9, 2016

There are days that challenge me. There are days that mould me. There are days that have a significant impact on my day-to-day grind. Last Wednesday was one of those days.

In addition to my duties as a webcomic blogger, I have been juggling several other “offline” jobs that are ...
