"Inquisition: WiP Comic, Need Feedback", 11th Apr 2012, 11:20 PM #1
Registration date: 4th Jul 2011
Yeah so, I'm pretty much giving up on COA. I started it without any idea where the story was going to go, and now it's a mess. A few months ago I did get the idea for another comic though.
This comic is going to be written to touch on topics I find important in my life, without rubbing them in the reader's face or hurting the overall plot.
The story will follow Mathis, a former member of a The Order of Inquisitors. The Inquisitors were originally put in place by the Master's Church to root out corrupt clergy and maintain a righteous order. Unfortunately, due to influencing from spies of the Balthus Empire, the Inquisitors have lost their true purpose. At the time Mathis joined the order they were little more than thugs sent out by their master to kill criminal and assassinate free-thinking officials.
So you can probably tell by now it is going to touch on some religious topics. But not too heavily. I don't plan on lecturing about my religious views, but I do plan to make small reference to them through the characters. Even then it won't be anything more than passing comments.
Some of the more all-encompassing topics however are things like separation of Church and State, religious tolerance, and corruption and misguidance of the clergy.
I'll clarify what I mean by that last point. We has, as humans, aren't perfect. I think even for a religious minded person this is important to keep in mind. It's also to keep in mind that a loud opinion doesn't make someone right, as person of faith you have to decide for yourself what you believe and why you believe it, not be TOLD what and why.
So now that I'm done ranting I'll get to why I'm posting this here...
This time around I plan to write the whole series before I start drawing and publishing. Hopefully this way I don't get stuck with a mess again. But I'd like so feedback from a few people.
So in hopes of getting some feedback I'm going to post my progress here.
