Blurb writing is an essential skill you need to develop if you're going to be able to sell your work and make it attractive and interesting to people!
What IS a blurb? Well it's a short little summery of your webcomic (or anything else), it's positive, descriptive ...

Does anyone remember the early days of the Internet in the mid-nineties, where a majority of online interactions took place on and Internet Relay Chat (IRC)? I was only ten years old when I was first connected, and it did not take me long to learn that saying 10/f ...

The Main Character Decoy

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 25, 2017



One reason why the movie Psycho is so iconic is, aside the expert directing and artistic cinematography, the fact that the one we’re led to believe is the main character of the movie gets brutally killed in the shower quite early into the movie.

What did killing her off ...

The trouble with Commissioned artwork

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Nov. 24, 2017



As a comic artist you build up a repertoire of marketable skills that people would like a piece of. When you need a bit of money you're able to offer your services, which is very useful! Sometimes people will look at your work and just offer you money to ...

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 ...

Unfunny Funny

Banes at 12:00AM, Nov. 16, 2017



Lame jokes.

Sometimes I love them. They can make me howl with laughter these days - but I find it's important to be careful with them.

Where was the first place I heard and ENJOYED bad jokes? David Brent of the original “The Office” is the first guy that comes ...

Political Comics

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 11, 2017



Considering that a lot of comics have politics embedded in their stories or worldbuilding or actively part of their characters’ parameters, what would constitute a political comic as opposed to a comic containing politics?

In my opinion and from the general descriptions of this budding genre, a political comic is ...

Comedy no comedy

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 ...
