I agree that a year is nothing, it takes time to build an audience.

That GORGEOUS art is definitely a plus for you, though.

One of the many Facebook groups I'm a member of.

I'll also be offering to do reviews--not critiques--here on the site once I get this 'real life stuff' squared away.

I worry a bit, as I generally release 18-24 pages once a month (been a delay in recent uploads, real life stuff gets in the way). I've got plot points and seeds from 'way back that I can, fortunately, remind readers of by linking back to whatever page, but the eagerness of getting to the good stuff and the fear of keeping readers waiting too long can be an issue.

I just had my comic reviewed by this site and while I disagree with one specific point he made--that he liked the art in the early issues, which I don't--I got a well-written and well thought-out critique of my comic. And the rest of the site is great, also--I think some of the more adult or raunchier comics here would be a perfect fit, as some of it seems geared towards a more mature and adult audience.

I absolutely hate 'Kokomo', but stand by everything else.

I once had the joy of overhearing two older businessmen-types discussing how crime in Manhattan would be so much less of a problem if Batman were real.

I put a nice little dollop of ketchup on the side and then dip as needed.

One of my early readers actually emailed me a couple years back and told me he'd made a tv tropes page for my webcomic, and hoped I didn't mind. I was honored!

Shameful. The guilty party should be called out, that's sacrilege on a site that's all about art and creativity.

The entire 'Pet Sounds' album. Pure genius.

Lost mine as well--and this was after the laptop died, so it was insult atop injury. I just recently started messing around with Painter, it lets me upload pages to my phone and paint them from there, after which I can upload the images back to my desktop and do the lettering in Gimp. I don't have a smart pad and certain situations are tricky when attempting to paint black and white art on a smartphone, but it has a VERY handy fill tool, and is surprisingly simple to pick up and learn. The only annoyance is streaking a line across the page every time I need to move it in whatever direction--it's the brush stroke as if I'm intentionally putting a line across the page, when all I'm trying to do is adjust the size or move to a new area on the page. A simple 'undo' erases the line, and I haven't yet figured out how to move around without doing that.

It's a nice substitute for now and allows me to paint while in transit. The Wacom pens can be expensive and a pain to find, but they're out there. I'd try Amazon, which is where I'll be getting my next Wacom tablet and pen from.

I'm amazed folks fall for this crap.

I was a bad roommate in my late teens, when I first moved out on my own--I honestly had no idea how things were supposed to work when living with people. The only bad thing I did was eat food that I didn't buy--I'd just go in the cupboard and make a box of mac and cheese, for example. Young and naive, I saw nothing wrong with that at the time.

The roommate in question remains a good friend to this day--he's actually a character in my webcomic, even. I know a lot of us do silly, thoughtless things in our youth, but it still bothers me that I was that clueless about living with others and respecting territory.

Mine is my entire comic--the entire thing is somewhat of a 'love letter' to the comic books I read as a kid, using lots of characters I created back then. Every little comic book moment I've ever loved is somehow worked in or referenced, but it was originally intended to end with #33 (I'm at #24 currently).

I write contemporary fiction as well but comics will always remain a love of mine, particularly certain eras of DC, Marvel, 2000AD, etc, and I wanted to tell a big, 'epic' superhero story set in an impossible universe where superheroes are as much a part of life as celebrities and mailmen.

One of my characters is naked 50% of the time just because that's how she prefers it, and she'll be getting a LOT more screentime in the coming months, so the trick for me is doing that and not having it seem gratuitous. Mostly I just show her breasts and rear-view scenes with her.

It read fine. And great art, too.

I celebrate milestones in the style of old-school comic books (which my comic is modeled after and pretty much an homage to). The upcoming 25th issue will be a 'double-sized spectacular', for example, as will #50 (further down the line, the culmination of certain storyarcs and plotlines).

I 'revamped' and dusted off old characters I'd created long ago, as a kid, and have been doing the monthly comic for a couple of years now. I recently dug out an ancient sketchbook that had several pages of a story I'd done back then, over 20 years ago, and was able to work those pages in as a part of the current story for an upcoming issue (in a weird way). So I could definitely see doing it the other way around--but in this case I did the revamped series and will be posting the old comic well into it.

It wasn't until after I went full color (issue #12) that I decided that a certain female character was a redhead, though early full-color covers show her as a blonde. She sticks out as a redhead now and I never forget to give her that shade of red (and green eyes).

I recently forgot an entire character! I don't write anything down script-wise, and dialogue the pages as I'm lettering them (as the artist/writer I already know vaguely what they're going to be saying), and totally forgot a minor villain who'd already had a few lines of dialogue earlier in the storyarc. At the last minute I hastily worked him in, but it would've been a glaring mistake to leave him out.

I've set up such a scenario in my comic--the trope of a new character taking over the rle of an old character (superheroes). As a kid I LOVED this--Rhodey taking over as Iron Man, for example. Daniel becoming the new Dream. I love the current Thor, and hope Marvel somehow keeps her around after the true Thor's return--I loved how badass Guy Gardner was during the Crisis, new costume and attitude. It's one of my favorite aspects of a superhero comic, the legacy being passed down, and I seeded it long ago with a major character in my comic and an upcoming storyarc.

As a writer it's fun to see the other characters' reactions to the change, as well as how the new person adapts to things. It's ripe for storytelling possibilities. (I was in the minority but I absolutely LOVED the transition from Hal Jordan as Green Lantern to Kyle...Kyle had a new, fresh approach, and Hal went out like old school Magneto hopped up on crack. As a reader it was just fantastic.)
