Rain Has its Uses

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 18, 2017



These past few days in Greece we’ve had torrential rains that feel like the prelude to a second Flood- terrible casualties included. And that got me thinking that it rarely rains in webcomics.

Usually the weather is dry in sequential art- perhaps because it’s troublesome to draw characters ...

tags: Comedy no comedy



Riffing on Banes' newspost from a while ago of “Horror minus horror” http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/news/2017/oct/18/horror-minus-horror/, does a comedy story without the comedy STILL work as a comedy? And does that make it BETTER comedy than something that doesn't?
I would contend that is ...

Time Stand Still

Banes at 12:00AM, Nov. 9, 2017



Time doesn't really exist in comics. Someone can blast through multiple pages in seconds, or linger on one panel for years. Well, that would be rare. But you see what I'm saying.

What if you want to make your readers slow down? To give your pages the pace ...

Cheating

Banes at 12:00AM, Nov. 2, 2017

Cheat, cheat, no reason to play fair…(the Clash)

Years ago, when I did my first animation and posted it online, looking for attention like always, there was one comment that made me defensive, annoyed, and eventually, thoughtful.

I had no idea about animation timing or any of the little ...

Talking is Action Too

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Oct. 28, 2017



Often in making webcomics, creators may try to have more action than discourse, as it tends to make the comic more visually interesting and give opportunities to avoid ‘talking head’ scenes.

However, I think that sort of conundrum is a potential trap that might prevent creators from truly making use ...

Active vs. Reactive Characters

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Oct. 14, 2017



In stories there are always protagonists and antagonists. And sometimes it’s the protagonists that are more interesting while others it’s the antagonists that steal the scene. Very rarely, it is both.

In all the wide versatility and range between characters, what is the common feature of interesting, memorable ...

NEVER ENOUGH TIIIIMME

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Oct. 13, 2017



The funny thing about time is that it only goes in one direction and it goes faster and faster as you age. What at first seems like a broad, deep, slowly meandering river becomes a narrow, fast flowing, gushing torrent the older you get: there's just never enough time ...

Heavy Meta

I'm not generally a fan of ‘spoofs’ or parodies. There are a few greats of course, like Young Frankenstein, but even the well-regarded ones like the Naked Gun series back in the day aren't ones I was ever crazy about. There are some funny jokes and good performances ...
