My comic is an ongoing story of interconnected and/or swapping between characrers' storylines. I do not have chapters or headings or anything of the sort.

When I decided to make a comic, it came about with a bunch of stories/scenarios I wanted to depict (which came from a bunch of scenes I'd drawn), and story flowed from these.

Essentially I plan a few pages ahead, and when nearly done with them, plan out the next ones. So I write out the details as I go, but the actual STORIES being told are 'SET', and I'm then "fleshing them out" as the saying goes. It also allows for re-working or new ideas to be included.

I also have a ton of notes (bits of dialogue, places/characters, backstories, funny moments to include, etc.)

So I guess I'm betwixt-and-between meticulous planning and flying by the seat of my pants.

It's working out well so far. :)

Wow! Thanks for taking the time to explain. It sounds like a great take on the survival game. Imagine a whole series of games each with a different philosophical view. Nah, that's too much. :)

And now, pertaining to thread... hmmm...

Fabulous. Please tell us what game. :)

On Reddit, in a discussion of games we'd like to see come to the Switch, I said a Kid Icarus game. I've not played the handheld game KI: Uprising (since I never owned, nor wanted and don't need a handheld game). I'd been told by someone that I have no right asking for a Kid Icarus game if I'd never played Uprising.

I replied that I'd played - and beaten {reportedly no easy task!, and I recall it being unnecessarily difficult throughout} the ORIGINAL game upon RELEASE, and I certainly have SEEN Uprising. Not to mention well versed in mythology, the source it draws from...

So what the hey? I'm not allowed to want a game of Kid Icarus?

I also recall in the documentary Star Woids, a kerfuffle in line when someone left and they wouldn't let him back in place without knowing the most arcane MINUTIA from Star Wars (like the call number of a particular Stormtrooper in a particular scene or something).

All these "real" fans of something are likely "peripheral fans" of something else anyway. :P :)

And I like the point daydreamsofdragons made - you could be just getting into something, so you get penalized or snubbed for it? Bah.

Hello! If you're working on comic yourself, it couldn't have taken TOO much coercing. :) Welcome to the mix!

Oh yes. I look through my comic frequently. I have done so for reference and/or consistency, to re-examine what's there and make sure I didn't "drop" anything, to reacquaint myself with the story, to show it to others (I have them all printed out), to simply re-enjoy it... so...all the time.

Maybe I'm the only one who doesn't cringe at viewing at old pages? Personally I don't see a difference in the quality or have any other qualms. I've been at it for a year and a few months (longer if you include the time it took me to work up a buffer), and I haven't missed an update each week. I've also been using this drawing style 'forever', so I'm pretty familiar with it. Sure, I've cringed at past art in my life, to be sure, even in this same style. Just not in the comic. I've also noticed improvement over the years, too, so I think I'm just at a comfort zone.

I don't really see how one can make a narrative comic and NOT have to go back through pages.

@The Doodler -
Even though it's technically a movie rating, I didn't think of it in terms of that. I suppose it could be regular PG, but I figured I should be on the safe side, especially with the sexual elements that come up farther down the road.

They're not smoking cigarettes or cigars. Recreational smoking. Don't want to glorify it to younger audiences.

My comic is rated PG-13, for suggestive material. Mostly this material has yet to show up in the comic. But I made it PG-13 because it already involves recreational smoking (not cigarettes or cigars) [although it's actually a form of wolfsbane here]. Later there'll be sexual activity, but nothing blantant or nudity. Just... suggestive. ;)

Read webcomics you haven't. Read a book. Write ahead in your comic.

Welcome, Daxjack! Gotta respect a guy with storytelling ambition. Also great that D&D DM didn't satisfy your craving (meant as a testament to you, not at all intended as a D&D slam) And I love that you're a pianist. My sweetheart is, too. Always terrific to have live chamber music around!

Have fun on Comic Fury, it sure is to be had... if you know where to look... no, I jest. Fun, help, silliness (good kind) & profundity abound here, both in comic and discussion form. Nice to have you.

@MistakeNPotatoes -
Well jeepers. I thought I had the solution for you. Who knew you'd have already done it? ;)

[spoiler]Yeah, repairing weapons would be nice. But I also kind of enjoy the tension and risk of running out of weapons to use. :) And ya know, even though it's obvious, I didn't think of running out of room on the walls for 'em. You have more things you'd like to save than me, I guess. ;) Just out of curiosity, did you find the more-than-hinted sexuality of the guy you by the house from a little offensive? There's just no excuse for the horrid stereotypes. :/ [/spoiler]

@MistakeNPotatoes -

I don't have the same luckluster attitude about Zelda that you seem to have (though I totally agree about the boomerang).

But I do have a work-around of sorts for you as to how to hang on to weapons you want to "save" - yes, if you use them, they will break. But you can at least "save" them for when you might want to use them rather than have them clog up your inventory.

Here's how:
[spoiler]You can buy a house. You read that right. It's on the southern side of Hateno Village. Talk to the guys around the house. And when you have the house, you can then furnish it with wall mount displays... and "keep" your weapons, either forever, or for later.[/spoiler]

Hope that helps. :)

I also would be in favor of around four genre tags/categories allowed. Besides just being a good idea, I too, have a comic that seems to defy a single category. Although "werewolf fiction" comes DAMN close. :)

When I'm excited for something (movie, video game, TV show, book, etc.) I poke around a little to make sure there isn't something that will make me inherently dislike it, if not already be obvious. Meaning if a red flag (for me) shows up I know I can drop the whole thing and not be frustrated later. After that I will watch or collect info until I think I've hit a personal point of no return/no going forward. Yes, sometimes that winds up meaning I 'spoiled' something for myself. Drat. But that's not often the case. I usually put an end to the ability to be spoiled (not counting uncontrollable incidents such as the cited Elaine in Seinfeld example) and have just enough info to make me even more excited.

On the whole, I dislike spoilers and will never understand people who 'flip to the end of the book'. This, to me, is an insult to the creators. Show some respect, in my opinion.

As can be gathered from my post about the cast page, I'd prefer to keep people spoiler free... but alas, it seems one just has to let folks be assholes to themselves. :/ (Again, an opinion.)

I do think there's a tendency to spoil too much right from the get go of the media industries, though. For instance, what the hell is this trend of having 6 trailers for a movie before it comes out?? TWO at MOST used to be the norm. Now it's just a throwing up of what's in the film.

And regarding Darth Maul - heck, I think they made a huge mistake showing his face at ALL before you were sitting in a theater. But no, we all saw it all over the place in posters. Just think of the IMPACT it would have made when he first lowered his hood.

Spoilers do have degree levels, of course. All in all you just have to know how much you can tolerate, be strong and hope for no Elaines.

ehcuat -
have you played Life Is Strange? It's more of an psychology study than a video game, but it's fun to see the story unfold and rewind (as it's partly about time travel). The situation you gave regarding the character in Night in the Woods is the type that happens all the time in it.

Well, one way my basic werewolf began life is via sculptures in actual clay, done at around the same time I started drawing them. So in essence, I have figures of them. [Sorry, no pictures readily available.] HOWEVER, none of them are actual characters. They're just the 'basic werewolf' as I said. When it became a webcomic many many many many {so many} moons later, then the specific characters developed. So yes, it would be neat to have figures of the 'wolfenalities' that I've come to love.

I'd think they'd be weird if they were jointed, so they'd probably be a figurine/statuette type. I guess I think of them as the type of "inaction figures" put out by Kevin Smith for ViewAskew characters. Talbot would come with his bindle & bone for sure. Can't really think of other accessories for anywolf. Maybe bags of bane? I imagine there'd be several for each in different poses/events. For instance, there really should be the Talbot on the run figure, but who wouldn't want him in another pose/way/& with an outfit, too? So maybe about 3 options for each 'wolf.

Edit: Oh. DUH. They'd come with pizza slices, and Charlie would come with a whole pizza.

Hiya hushicho!

Glad to see you came back. I've been here for just over a year myself. And it's a lot of fun, both in the comics and the conversations. They range from stOOpid to poignant, and there's always something engaging, whether it be advice or an anecdote. You made a good choice. I'm on Tapastic, too, but I don't really do much there but put up my comic.

Go, run, and be free ... :D
