I think this has been done elsewhere too. The Redwall series involves a father raising his son to be a responsible young man I believe.

That's not necessarily true. Look at The Legend of Korra and Batman Beyond. I admit it takes warming up to for the nostalgia fans, but they do give it a chance and it grows on them. Plus, look at the sequels of video games. They do not always have the same characters yet people love them and in some cases, more than the predecessors.

I felt that way when Rodimus Prime became the new leader. And I loved Rodimus and the new age that came with him, but due to bad writing and harping on him not being Optimus Prime, it was a waste on so many levels. So they brought back Optimus which as much as I liked, I hated that he just rebecame the leader. It's just... no. That's a bad message and it's a bad way to save a show. Even the greatest people retire and we need to be accepting of the new generation as they are. We were all new at one time.

With that said, I confess that I actually like the passing on the mantle trope, but I am not blind to how fragile it is. Like I said, the secret to doing it right is to move on that this guy is "not Optimus Prime" for example and let be great as they are because a successor character is a character first.

I just might. Or at least, the best of my art relating to my comic.

I'm flattered, Blu. I've even gone as far as making faux ads, but as with always, I only put up the best on my gallery.

I've made up other brands too though they don't come up in my current comic because it takes place in the Victorian age. I "The Ugly Mug" for coffee, "Sugar Cubed" for a bakery and "Abstract" for a clothing line for monsters. I chose the name "Abstract" because not all monsters are humanoid (mermaids, centaurs, manticors, etc.).

Oh I wish. I love diners. They're so fun. As for your Mistress cakes, are their other things you made?

That and real malt based shakes that are home made. PS, Mistress Glazed Buns sounds cute.

A good friend of mine made up our own burger franchise which is a play upon Nickel's. It's Dragon Burger.

Because of the way copyright laws work now, you can't use real life brands or logos anymore in the fictional world like Coca-Cola, Gap, Chanel and so on. With that said, you have to improvise and make up your own brands. Do you guys have a made up brand of something inspired by real life? A chocolate bar, clothing line, coffee shop, gaming industry, etc.?

I think that it is worth doing if the kid can stand alone without being exactly like their parent. The biggest mistake writers make is making the child a carbon copy of their parent and that shoots the story in the foot from the get go. Just like in real life, we are not our parents. That should shine in the child. I mean, look at Goku and Gohan. They are father and son, but they are not copies of each other by a long shot and that is what makes each of them great together and on their own.

Well... yes and no. I believe in divine intervention and how there is a grand plan, however, I also believe that plan is flexible and can happen in many ways. That and plans can change hence human beings having free will.

Thanks. For someone who's into dark themes, you're a real angel, Wander :)

I might reconsider in the future when I'm more reassured. After all, this is a big basket to put eggs in.

It does. Thanks again, Wander, but the challenge with my webcomic is that I do want to make it into a book, but it will be four books. In other words, it's a long story quite literally.

Ahh, thanks, Wander. Hmm, still it doesn't make me want to work with them.

Catburger:Is flexible funding not a thing anymore?


Well, Patreon is suiting me so far. I get the money I earn at the end of the month fair and square. While a small percentage is kept by Patreon, it's not too big. The only thing is that I don't have a lot of patrons yet. Still, every supporter is precious even if they are paying only by time. Bigger things will come with time and steady hard work ;)

One word; yikes. As I said before, I almost made a big mistake. This is why the "About" page of a site matters. It should be honest and informative.

Ugh. It looks like Kickstarting is not in my favour. I misunderstood it completely. I'm very disappointed because people hear "Kickstart" and that draws in crowds. I guess it's not what it seems.

Well, thanks with love to everyone who clarified this. I almost made a big mistake.

The title is self explanatory. I went to Kickstarter, but the "About" page is not very clear. How does it work? Is it basically like Patreon?
