mitchellbravo:Why is it so hard to write a script???

Probably multiple answers, but for me it's more how you look at what you need to get across.

If I'm writing a script for someone else I'd try to do a full script with panels, descriptions and dialogue, but when I'm writing for myself it's mainly dialogue and maybe a vague description.

It's at the art stage when I start worrying about panels and I work that out as I'm sketching.

Sometimes the drawing that results causes me to rewrite dialogue, but it's usually an improvement.

Uploaded Monday and Friday's comics into the queue.

Hopefully I can get some more comics drawn this next week and not have to rush things at the last minute. (Although with my track record the odds are pretty even there.)

Two curious books, most likely doomed to never be reprinted again... because of the Berestain Bears cottage industry.

Stan & Jan Berestain are interesting cartoonists who had a much wider footprint than those damn bears would lead you to believe, cartoons and covers for Colliers magazine, cartoon books on raising children, a failed comic strip, and, as far as I can tell, 3 cartoon books dealing with... S... E... X!

(Shock. Horror. Rioting in the streets.)

I don't know how shocking this would have been back when they were released, but they're pretty tame by today's standards. If they were a webcomic, they'd get away with a teen rating. However even the otherwise comprehensive book on the Berenstains, Child's Play, fails to mention these books.

Anyway...

Spoilered for art you'd never see in the Berenstain Bears.

How about Gertrude and/or Brunhilda? (Gertrude's the blonde, Brunhilda's the black-haired one.)

Drew and scanned a comic, but decided against rushing to finish it and hold on to it for either Friday, if I can't get the 'planned' comic finished, or run it next week.

KAM:now I just have to create panel lines, add text, color, and upload before midnight.


And for those who bet against me doing that... you lost. ;-)

Didn't have a lot of time Sunday, Monday & Tuesday, but finally finished drawing and scanning Friday's comic. Later than I would have liked, but now I just have to create panel lines, add text, color, and upload before midnight. Tick, tick, tick... ;-)

Part of Wednesday's comic.

Hobbes in toy form. Kind of tough finding a decent reference pic for it as Watterson rarely drew him full figure like this.

While once in a blue moon the single panel limitation might be affecting the storytelling, I don't think it's that big a deal.

Another possibility is maybe some people are confused by the setting and world being different, but again I don't think it's major. If you're worried about it you could create a page that explains some things about the world.

How are you hyping The Under? Do you post on Twitter/Facebook/something else when the comic updates? Some people record themselves drawing their comics and post it on video sites like YouTube to get publicity.

KidCthulhu:I accidentally hit "dislike" because of where my mouse was when the page refreshed >_<


Kinda figured that since you also liked it. Thanks! :-)

Okay, last night before bed I finished drawing Wednesday's comic, finished it up today and loaded it into the queue. Woohoo!

I also started sketching Friday's, but it's got a ways to go.

I've added some interior scans to my previous post.

The Saturday Evening Post Cartoons: The Nine To Fivers
As a collection of cartoons from a magazine this is unlikely to be reprinted, although the actual cartoons may or may not be reprinted.

Have a few, but these were handy.

The Best of H.T. Webster

image

Was created after the cartoonist's death in 1953. I suppose it's possible it could be reprinted, but how many people would know who he is these days? His most well known creation is probably The Timid Soul starring Casper Milquetoast, which is why calling a weak timid person a milktoast was a thing in pop culture for a while.

Rhoads' West

image

A book of western cartoons by Fred Rhoads printed in 1972. Rhoads wrote and drew Sad Sack comics for Harvey.

image
image

In the book the words are on one page with the art on the next page. I've edited it so it reads easier.
