I thought about doing this, but only briefly. Seems like it's harder to write good prose than do good comics. Is writing prose easier for you? How are you so freakishly productive?

Also, adapting to animation would be exponentially harder, but you've got so many 3D assets already that it might be a selling point to investors or producers. (that and your prolific output)

It sucks that a company can practically name itself "Rainforest Co." and still be the worst polluter on Earth. Case in point, Amazon.com.

https://www.engadget.com/2017/10/17/greenpeace-blasts-amazon-over-poor-environmental-practices/

Companies should be forced to change their brand to reflect their environmental record. Thus Amazon.com becomes Garbage.com. At least enforce the same treatment that cigarette companies get, forced to advertise their cancerousness in plain black & white.

Is your original version still adding new pages, or is it complete? I still think it's easier to create a separate comic site. That would automatically start each version at page 1, and you could copy/paste the auto-generated archive page HTML from version 1 to a side column of your dicector's cut archive page.

@Steven-Vincent That chart is truthy on first glance, but it's not based on real data. The whole point of charting stuff is to accurately measure the real world data. Oops, I just realized it's a hypothetical diagram, not a data chart.

Anyway, 100% realistic superheroes is kind of an oxymoron, and I think it's possible to have 100% realism be fun, although I can't think of any examples right now. (conversely, 0% realism might not also be fun)

MJThornton:What I always wanted to know was why American comics in general always seem so constrained to super hero stuff.

Maybe it's because superheroes are the biggest selling comics in America. But that perception is biased. A few decades ago, western cowboy comics were top sellers too. And there's lots of indie comics available.

I would like to be contradicted with maybe some cool totally not formula indie comic stuff if it's out there in the genre, I'm always looking for inspiration.


America also has a long tradition of alternative small press comics.

The Blue Monday layout might be a better match with your freestyle artwork, and its archive page looks left justified already.

Putting your archive page in two columns is possible, but it's going to require some HTML expertise. Also, with Javascript you could screen the archive page counter so each version appears to start at page one.

Inky, I always thought you were so smart and awesome because you're a filmmaker and knowledgeable about all kinds of stuff.

Anyways, as you know, there are different kinds of therapy techniques and therapists. CBT is supposedly good for all kinds of problems because it forces you to use your brain instead of relying on medication. You're evidently good at using your brain, so maybe apply a structured technique like this to your current problem.

I kind of identify with what you described and I can't find a passion. Actually, the popular concept of passion is ridiculous to me, because I associate passion with something you would die for, like the passion of Jesus Christ. We have so much social and intellectual freedom in the modern world, we don't need passion anymore, just the willingness to learn new things or finish old projects.

Barbara Sher is a funny life coach who identified a personality type she calls a 'Scanner.' This type feels trapped if they have to pick just one career or passion or whatever. I dunno, maybe this crumb will help you.

Sorry, I could not see an UNTITLED chapter list at that link. If you want to separate two different versions of your comic, I guess you could register an alternative CF site if that's easier for you.

If you just want to share a limited selection of earlier work, probably the extra pages idea is best.

The hard way might be to keep both versions in the same comic as chapters, as you're doing, but using tricks like page titles and posting dates to keep everything organized. For instance, title each page "Director's Cut Chapter X Page Y" or "Ver.X Ch.Y Pg.Z" or something kind of like they title TV episodes like "Series.Title.S01.E01." Be consistent with matching chapter titles and page titles, and consistent labeling will be easier to read as well as parse programmatically later on.

Oh yea, part of the clunkiness might be because that layout center aligns each title. If the titles are left justified, it might be easier to read.

As far as I know, Ko-Fi uses PayPal, so you could just use a PayPal button and cut out the middle man if you want. Maybe the label the button "tip jar" or "buy me a coffee" or whatever.

There is a service called digital tip jar but I dunno anything about it.

Another thing I heard about is accepting Bitcoins or other cryptocurrency.

The trouble with "a bit of heated back and forth" is that everyone has differently calibrated thermostats. What temperature are you comfy with and how much is a bit?

Please forgive me but I just gonna talk about this one strip posted above. Your art is lovely and I like your lettering technique in this sequence. The troublesome part is how the character is describing what's happening in the panels. They say "show don't tell," but I don't think that's a law written in stone. However, maybe consider if there's a note in the skulls mouth, draw the note in the mouth. And it follows that we'll all be curious what the note says, so next panel would be a close up of the note, showing what it says in creepy handwritten letters.

Panel flow looks readable to me. The dialog is oddly changing font size for unknown reasons. I suggest picking a size and sticking to it, unless some exceptional emotion is expressed. Also pay attention to haphazard use of crossbar "I", which looks better as first-person pronoun. Also try to reign in all the unused space in your balloons.

Keep up the nice work!

Characters published before 1923 are all public domain. Between 1923 and 1978, if the publisher forgot to put a copyright notice on initial publication, it automatically became public domain.

MK_Wizard:I doubt paint is one of the ingredients in these foods.


Fun fact, food dyes are also used in industrial paint. And some artists actually use candy to paint with.

The difference is in the edible sugar/corn syrup solutions versus the polymerized solutions.

If I understand you correctly, you're asking if it's good to write something original, but still inspired by something else. I'd answer "yes," otherwise nothing new would ever get published.

Personally, I once plotted something out that was inspired by something else, which was also inspired by something else, which was also inspired by yet another something else. Internally, I struggle with how derivative the fantasy world would look, so that's something that holds me back from finishing it.

I just remembered, Alan Moore is widely considered a great comic writer, and he's adapted all kinds of old things.

Neil Gaiman, too.

That's a tough distinction, because cartoonists and graphic novelists are rarely if ever recognized in the same pantheon as "great writers."

Sorry, I should have known this was a comic context by default.

Hmmm, but aren't "to make it big" and "to become a great writer" two very different goals (albeit complementary)? Typically people mean "rich and famous" when they "make it big."

@Rechkalov what big company do you consider "creative?" Maybe we have different connotations about what that means. Can we agree the Disney company was at least innovative in some ways (if only technological)?
