Ha. Oh yes.

I've been wanting to do a crazy comedy comic starring some Disney-esque duck characters I've had rattling around in my head since forever -- but every time I watch a great (or even medium-quality) episode of the The Simpsons, I question whether I could ever achieve anything even half as funny or inspired. Drama is hard, and yet, easier than funny.

Somewhere in this conversation, I think we need to talk about what a great character Nelson Muntz is. The episode where he dates Lisa is an utter classic in how it deconstructs and reconstructs him, and also in how it shows how his crappy home life influences his bad behavior. The episode makes some very human statements about a character who had mostly just been a (funny) one-note joke or a somewhat cardboard antagonistic force.

Merged Doublepost:

...conversely, I feel they've gone over the line with Bart a couple of times, taking him from his natural bratty and disrespectful territory and over the cliff's edge into the badlands of sociopathy. Bart isn't supposed to be a deeply damaged person who lacks empathy, so much as a lazy, fun-loving, snarky, selfish ass (at his worst). They haven't gone too far that often. The episode where he won't stop lying to Marge and then steals a bulldozer to tear the Springfield sign down with... that one jumps the shark by feeding his conscience to it.

A lot of characters in the SwordCat Knights universe could be described as "mean", especially in the main comic. My lifelong adoration of Superman aside, I think it's very interesting to watch flawed, selfish, rude, and violent characters finding depths (heights?) of decency and empathy within themselves. If done well, I think it can make their good deeds seem more unlikely, more precarious, and more difficult for them to pull themselves up to. Innately "good" characters can be very interesting, but I've had a lot of negative emotions to work through... I can't afford therapy, so I send my characters through one another's ringers.


Person of Interest was exceedingly great at making protagonists out of fundamentally mean characters, usually as long redemption arcs. And Buffy got a lot of useful mileage out of Cordelia's mean girl years... and then there's Spike's arc, being pulled between innate evil and a growing sense of affection for the hero (eventually). Even when [spoiler]he got a soul[/spoiler], he was still a pretty big jerk.

If a character is a jerk exclusively to seem "cool", that's where writers start to lose me.

I helped my mom and sister put a t-shirt line up on Cafepress. The concept has attracted an IP/trademark infringer. We alerted Cafepress, who replied to us by stating they found no infringement. Some print-on-demand services don't seem to care if someone's getting ripped off, as long as the print-on-demand service is making money.

WanderingJew, the same applies to Amazon. If you're not rich enough to sue over it, they just don't care. I bought a few graphic t-shirts last year on Amazon -- Spider-Man, Big Bang Theory, Garfield -- and they all turned out to be counterfeit products. I informed Amazon... no reply.

I assume you'll flame out like a meteor before you get this far, but, just in case... go nuts.

I could do almost anything, really. There aren't many any genres I inherently dislike. And even though I loathe horror, I've written a couple stories which veer strongly in that direction, because I felt the character development demanded it.

I'd never do a comic based on the "choose your own adventure" setup, nor one in which plot developments were voted on by readers.

Yes, but not quite in a way which would make Ned Flanders overly happy.

I'd like to go into greater detail, but I'd have to give plot points away.

zerothe3rd:I had a method for this in my comic. Eventually I found this worked out pretty well. I have an example in the spoiler tag; it's just a single panel. I don't know if it'll help or not. Basically i put them on top of each other; Spoken on top, unique characters in the center, translation on the bottom. All in the same bubble.

[spoiler]Image[/spoiler]

Wow, that's brilliant. I tried this sort of thing with straight movie-style subtitles once...

(Considering this is your own thread, dpat57 -- the 57th of all the internet's esteemed dpats -- I hope the mods don't close it.)

I've wanted to work in prose for a long time, but had a bit of trouble working up the nerve. Didn't want to suck at it, or be too derivative...

I've spent most of this year working on a novelized prequel to my main comic, SwordCat Knights. It's called SwordCat Princess and the Doorway to Avalon, and it's about young Kathryn's experiences growing up in Castle Boru as the daughter of the great King Brian Boru and her headstrong mother Gormflaith. Also: there's a doorway to Avalon. The novel is mostly finished, but most of the scenes aren't in order, as I wrote them in bursts of inspiration on trips to my favorite beach, so now I'm in the thick of editing.

I'm also in the process of expanding a short story I wrote years ago into a novel. It's called Learning to Fly, and it's about a man who wakes up as a fly one day and then keeps going on about his normal life. It exists within the SwordCat Knights universe, but can be read independently.


I'll be posting the first chapters of both here of CF very soon, and likely the entire texts once they're done. I'll also be releasing them on Amazon. I hadn't heard of Smashwords before this, so I'll check them out.


I'm curious: how are your Amazon sales on your novels?

Matt Comics:I forgot to mention that I'm highly uncomfortable about making people pay for my comics, though. Direct stuff like patreons and whatever, at least. I wouldn't mind some ad money but good luck with that. I'm all about sharing stuff I had so much fun making with the world and hoping they enjoy it, so blocking it behind a paywall sounds at odds with that.

I want my comic to be accessible by everyone, forever, so I feel you, like I feel Harvey Birdman.


...Caley gots ta get paid though, yo, so I've tried censoring the free version a little to make it kinda PG-13, and then offering the R-rated-ish version behind the Patreon paywall. Same story, same pages, different levels of explicitness. I'll let y'all know how it's gone once I've properly finished the process.

I've been a patron for My Life with Fel when I could afford it. I would definitely pay for webcomics, be it to support them, to get access to bonus content, or to reach ones I really wanted to read behind a paywall.

I pay for Netflix (though I should have just bought the Person of Interest box set and skipped the last two months of Netflix) and Hulu (which I pause for three months at a time about twice a year), and, depressingly, CBS All Access (only for the unrepentantly awful Star Trek: Discovery)... why should webcomics be any different?

I'm more unemployed than not at the moment, so future webcomic support from me will be dependent upon increasing my budget. I think I might try crime...

I hate scrolling.

Print is dying.

Phones are ubiquitous.

Scrolling is the future.

I am dinosaur, and the future is a meteor which is slowly crashing down upon my world.

In the case of my main comic's lead, Artemis came first, then a design, then a secret identity of Kathryn Davis, then a renaming to Kathryn O'Mega, then a major redesign, then a decision that the fake-ass O'Mega would be an alias and that O'Brian would be her real last name, then the concept that Artemis was a legacy title in which she was part of a line of others who'd been given the title, then a decision that she'd start with a different alias surname (Kennedy), then a years-too-late realization that her superhero name should be SwordCat, then a retcon to wedge that into the continuity I'd long established in the webcomic and the 7 years of scripts I've already written ahead to follow it (plus various spinoff scripts), then a further retcon that a struggle between her personal identity and the demands placed upon her might be well-reflected in a "marriage" of the two superhero names into Artemis the SwordCat...

...development can melt one's mind.

I tried to watch the Doctor Who premiere. The video froze at the 9-minute mark. At that point, I still didn't care about a single character, was still not impressed by even a single line of dialogue, and was already bored by the mystery. The cinematography was pretty good, I guess.

I gave up and watched episode 3 of 1994's RoboCop: The Series instead. It was as dumb and clever and dramatic and fun as I remembered from my youth. I had a good time.

Normally, I'm a fan of Chris Chibnall's work. I loved Broadchurch, especially season 1. I liked his Torchwood outings. I don't know what prompted him to start the new season of Who with 9 of the dullest and most generic minutes of television I've ever seen. It's hard to get excited at the notion of putting any effort into watching the remaining 51-ish minutes.


EDIT: Reloaded the bloody thing, spent about another 23 minutes on it. The supporting cast is utterly forgettable. The writing remains dreadfully dull.

Jodie Whittaker is doing excellent work. She is very talented and very well-cast. She is, thus far, the only part of this thing worth watching... but as soon as the hackneyed script forced her to say "the question is", that blandest and cheapest of non-plot-furthering plot-furthering dialogue, I turned it off again and got back to editing my novel.

THE QUESTION IS... will I come back for more and finish the premiere tonight?


EDIT 2: I did it. I watched the rest. I'm (mostly) sorry I did. When comparing this episode to a Saturday morning cartoon, it's boring. When comparing it to other similar-ish genre fiction like Buffy, it's vapid, shallow, and dumb.

...I did like the Doctor's genuinely heroic leap; it was a great risk and looked properly scary. And how the old man actually got a chance to act in the end; he was rather good. The older lady, though, was a badly-written character who seemed overly eager to [spoiler]die in this episode,[/spoiler] like [spoiler]Trip Tucker in the Star Trek: Enterprise finale...[/spoiler]
...so she never came across as even slightly real. The villain was badly-written, but looked cool as hell, in and out of the mask. I did not like the really, really, REALLY dumb cliffhanger ending.

I hope they delve further into the the Doctor's new gender in future episodes. On a show like, again, Buffy, there would be some fundamental meaning and character impact beyond "Oop, my legs are shorter than before!" I don't know if I can be bothered to check back in for future installments to find out... I was extraordinarily bored during about 98% of this episode.


FINAL VERDICT: If Doctor Who's shittiness has gotten you a bit down, try washing that feeling away with a Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law mini-marathon, which is what I did. Thanks, Hulu: I really DID want to feel him.
