Argh, thank you. My post-concussion syndrome brain fails me again, I have literally no memory of doing that. Argh.

"Expletives in My Webcomic Page Titles Are Censored - How Do I Uncensor Them?", 30th May 2022, 3:21 AM #2
User avatar
I was just looking through my archive, and I noticed several of the page titles which contain expletives have been censored with asterisks (i.e. "107. #5, Pg. 18 | Chosen One = Dumbf***").

If I am able to uncensor the titles via some setting buried in the comic management pages, I would greatly appreciate someone pointing me in the right direction.

I'm a big, big fan of John Cassaday's best work. My attempts to emulate it always include a tiny smidge of Alex Ross and a bigger dollop of an early influence on me, Amanda Conner of the Disney's Gargoyles comics from the '90s.


Fun fact: I was a huge Michael Turner (Witchblade) fan and clone when I started art class, but my teacher HATED his work and steered me toward realism.

P.S. Art teachers: don't tell people what style to draw, just teach them to do it better.

The trees are a bit on the bland and blobby side, but the animals are singing brightly with far more natural style and whimsy than anything I've ever drawn. Very nice.

They all contain pieces of me, per the "write what you know" paradigm.


James Barrington is my unrestrained ID with a British accent tacked on.

Jack is my bitterness, obsessiveness, and depression with some manly NYPD swagger tacked on.

Kathryn is my survivor's guilt, suicidal ideations, and rescuer's complex with womanly power tacked on.

Julia is my joyful innocence.


She's the hardest one to write sometimes.

I sold a spare cell phone for $100 so I got to pay my car insurance with no late fee.

...and I apparently qualified for my first-ever credit card, so now I can start building my credit up.

I put New York's own Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society in the background of a scene of my comic set in Central Park. Proudest moment? Possibly.

PS1 - 1996, still own it, though it failed last year.
Xbox - 2003, 97% just for the exclusive Buffy game.
SNES - 2005, bought used, didn't work. Sobbing internally.
PS2 - 2021, to replace the PS1. Still Bandicooting after all these years.

Very sad I was never able to afford a PSP.

Bizfurd:i struggle with nothing because i’m just built different

jk i agree with everything said so far (except noses, i actually really like drawing noses).

I like drawing noses too, but also I don't because I find it rather difficult at times. Especially when I'm using my lumpy werid-ass nose as reference, which I do on several of my OCs because I'm a glutton for punishment. Punishment, and Italian food.

Go hang a salami, I'm a lasagna hog.

Anti-suicidal PSA mixed with Gargoyles fanfic. Depth mixed with fun. Words mixed with boobs.

lirvilas:also I object to this suggestion that Hawkeye is somehow not deserving of being an Avenger

Mere suggestions are too mild: Hawkeye straight-up should not be there. #TRUTHBOMBS

To the OP: I give underpowered characters guns. This seems to work out okay.

Arayna and Julia.

Arayna has vampire reflexes, and Julia is a faerie who doesn't actually weigh anything or have body parts to injure.

James would boast about being good at it, but then immediately wipe out and then get drunk. Possibly in the reverse order.

Hands are easy to draw. They're like tiny faceless people. And you have a model of a hand with you at all times: it's your hand!

Some of George Lucas' improvements really were. Some REALLY weren't.

I have several pages in my archive which were ill-conceived from a production viewpoint. I'll be fixing them ASAP. I consider a webcomic very malleable before it goes to print. I've been learning as I go the whole time, and I want as professional a physical graphic novel as possible when the first 8-issue arc is finished.

...I'm trying to avoid redoing entire pages. I want to just do patch art to fix issues. I might, maybe, possibly redraw an entire page or two. Too much redrawing leads to perfectionism, and nothing is perfect. Perfection should not be the goal. Just clarity and quality.

It's boobs.

Extraordinarily difficult to draw well -- they're a globe and a pyramid and they change shape due to squishiness and they're wildly different shapes and sizes in their variance from woman to woman. And everyone STARES AT THEM, unlike dumb feet.

Boobs forever.

I prefer creating high-quality art.

I can settle for the upper end of medium-quality. Comics are a volume business, after all.

I get bothered by leaving anything alone when it's at the low end of medium, or, ye (non-existent) gods, the upper end of shit-tacular.


...thus, I've gone back at times and re-drawn various characters, props -- entire panels and/or re-arranged panel layout, if needed. I need my work to look passably professional when I get to the print stage, and the comic con artist's alley stage. It's coming sooner than my anxiety would like to believe.

I haven't updated in a while. But, even when I'm on schedule, I'm super salamander certain Kyo doesn't read my comic.

My dead mother.


She's a box of ashes, since her suicide. Kept in my closet for some future ash-spreading ceremony of my choosing, timing, and design.

I really, truly wish she hadn't killed herself. It's a small apartment, I need the space.*



(*She would have liked that joke.)
