A webcomic university? Sounds like the next plot for a Pixar movie. :)

Really, I guess any fantasy concept can be considered silly if all you care about is realism.

If someone dislikes one of my posts or videos, I just take it with a grain of salt. We can't all like the same things or agree on everything.

I've had the power go out while I was in the middle of drawing something. I always save every couple of minutes.

Worked at Toys r' Us for 8 years. Not counting the holiday season, the rest of the year was pretty fun. Seeing kids, playing with toys, and having a nice crew to work with.

This is really inspiring to see everyone's improvement! :D

Anyone can just look at the very first page of my comic vs. the most recent and see the difference. :)

Timelapse11:Where I live in the UK, we call them 'car boot sales'
I don't go to them as often I as I should, I've got good stuff from them the very rare occasions that I've actually been to one.


"Car boot sale"? That's a new one to me. :)

Merged Doublepost:

khkddn:Flea markets I've been to have vendors that are more professional than someone having a sale in their yard or garage. Some of them sell things that are secondhand but many sell things that are brand new. Sometimes there's people selling food too.


Yeah, the flea market I went to was in the local church, and they were selling food in the church cafeteria.

Merged Doublepost:

GMan003:From my own experience, and speaking only of my own region (central Virginia):


A "swap meet" is a hobbyist thing, and usually for trades instead of money. Like, say we were into vintage computers, we might meet up at a swap meet and I happen to have a spare power supply for your broken TRS-80, and you've got an extra floppy drive for a Commodore PET you don't mind parting with, we both end up happier by swapping. And it's just a chance to talk shop with fellow hobbyists.


Ah, okay. I was wondering what that meant.

Dumb question of the day. I was at a flea market over the weekend, and plenty of the shoppers there all called it something different. So it got me thinking....when you're at a yard sale type of event and/or holding one yourself, what do YOU refer to it as?

Is it a garage sale? A yard sale? A church sale? A junk sale? A flea market? A swap meet? ("Swap meet" was the one that was new to me. I rarely hear that wording used.) Does it depend on how big a venue it is, or what's being sold? Is it a regional thing and it just depends on where you're from? Am I thinking too hard about this?

What do YOU guys call a venue where you're selling off your old junk?


Me personally, if it's just a small thing you're doing yourself at your house, it's a "garage sale". If it's at a venue with a bunch of people and/or a neighborhood thing, it's a "flea market".

Even though I can read webcomics for free most of the time, I've still gotten print versions of a few of my favorites. It's far easier to re-read them that way versus trying to click through a bunch of screens, and what if you don't have internet access?

I think any and all avenues of making money off your comics can work--it's just a matter of what works best for you and/or what versions of consumption the fans prefer the most.

Superheroes can be a great escape, but also an inspiration to be a better person, especially if you come into a position of power and using the gifts you've been given to help others.

I think you pretty much answered your own question. It's all really just a matter of trying to identify the things you need to improve on, and then actually practicing over and over.

The parents who are supportive of their kids interests and defend their child no matter how "weird" they are (within reason). The Addams Family and the parents from Frankenweenie come to mind.

Try watching a marathon of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic". That should help you. ;)

Nice to meet you! And you make a very good point. Independent creators need more of a chance to shine.

Everyone seems to hate the "I've got Batman in my Basement" episode of B:TAS, and while I can understand why people hate it, I've still got a soft spot for it, mainly in its wish fulfillment. It's a salvageable/good idea that I think just got messed up in execution.

Instead of showing all the build up to the kids rescuing Batman and hiding him in their basement, they should've just started the episode right away with Batman passed out in the basement--make it a surprise/stinger reveal. Like, start off with the kids playing or something, and the boy keeps mentioning that he's got "something" in the basement, but won't tell them what it is, and then finally shows them it's Batman. THEN go back and show what happened (albeit much quicker, like, the kids just come across his unconscious body and take him in, but we don't know what happened to him until much later. And don't have the kids running into danger where a supervillain is clearly present.)

Penguin could still be the villain, but make him an actual threat. You could still have the kids try the "Home Alone" thing, but DON'T have it actually work. Like, maybe they try stopping Penguin and his goons with Batman's gadgets, but since they're, you know, KIDS, the goons easily subdue them. Penguin could even have a line like, "You kids honestly thought you could stop us with some homemade traps? This isn't like the movies you idiots."

And finally, have the kids learn a lesson. Because they pretty much begin and end the episode the same way. Either A: have the main boy (Sherman I think his name was) be more of a shy wimp who doesn't know what he wants to be when he's older and/or is being picked on constantly, but after saving Batman, he's inspired to be braver and to be a detective.
Or B: keep Sherman as he was in the episode, only he goes too far by trying to investigate real crime scenes and/or gets too close to actual villains, and after this Batman incident, he learns to dial it back and that there's some situations where you need to leave it to the professionals and just call the cops.

And instead of Batman watching the kids through the basement window like a creeper, either leave the scene out completely, or if you REALLY need that in there, then have Bruce watching the news or something, and a story comes on saying something like, "In other news, local group of kids help neighbor find missing dog", and when Bruce sees who it is, he just smiles.

There---that's my "fix it" for an infamous 'bad' episode. What do you think?
