Like a couple other folks in this thread, my first was the ur-sprite-comic Neglected Mario Characters. I fondly remember waiting for updates to Bill and Fred's Quazi-Mediocre Adventure around the turn of the millennium.

My comic progresses in real-time. For example, in the eight-and-a-half years since the comic began, the character Chel has aged from a 6-year-old first grader to a 15-year-old high school freshman.

Good luck with the burnout! I know how rough that can be. I hope you enjoy your break.

I got comics in dark comedy and nonfiction flavors, if you're interested.

I've really gotten into minicomics/zine comics recently. It's a different experience than bigger, commercially-printed comic books. Might even print some of my own eventually.

So yeah, if you're interested in making some, I'd say go for it. They're relatively easy and inexpensive to produce, and there's definitely an audience for them out there.

I used to struggle with hands, but after almost nine years of drawing them nearly every day they've become second nature to me.

Feet, however...

Cooke:I have a wacom that's over a decade old and never had this issue. Are you like putting your whole body weight on the pen when you draw? Because a standard heavy hand to me should not have caused this issue.


It was just a guess, as I’ve had to teach myself in the past to ease the pressure I put on my pen when drawing for the sake of my fingers and wrist. For the record, I’ve used numerous tablet pens before, including other Wacom pens, and these two cases are the only times this has happened to me… and both were Pro Pens 2, so maybe it’s just something to do with this particular model?

In any case, I bought the second pen off Amazon less than a month ago, so I’m sending it back for a replacement. For the older pen, I’ll look into soda powder or epoxy putty. I appreciate the suggestions!

I draw using a Wacom Cintiq 16 with a Wacom Pro Pen 2. After many months of use, I noticed that parts of the pen at the tip, surrounding the nib, had begun to chip off.

image

This causes the nib to bend out of place when I draw and prevents it from registering pressure properly. Thankfully I had an extra Pro Pen 2 on hand... but after some time the second pen is also starting to chip in the same area.

I imagine this is due to my massive, manly hands crushing this puny plastic beneath my iron grip me using too much pressure when drawing, so that's something I can work on. But in the meantime I don't want to drop another $70 on a replacement pen because one part is a bit busted. I'm not sure how easy it would be to replace the broken part either; I can disassemble the pen to a degree but the broken section seems to be built directly into the barrel.

So I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience with this kind of damage in tablet pens in general or Wacom Pro Pens in particular, and if so, how I might going about fixing it.

For the most part I'm a runner. I love making comics and I have no social life so most of my free time is devoted to writing and drawing them. This is how I operate with my primary webcomic, Because I'm Depressed. It took me a while to get there, though: the first few years of the comic were punctuated with unplanned hiatuses and aborted story arcs. But eventually I got into the swing of things with planning and scheduling, and the comic has been consistently updated for the last six-and-a-half years.

When it comes my other webcomic project that I debuted this year, Comics Chronicle, I'm more of a hiker. This is partly because nonfiction comics require a lot more preparation than fiction comics. The first comic I made for CC took me the better part of a year to research, draft, re-draft, and draw. I can't just put one of these comics out every week (or even every month), so it makes sense to rely on a more relaxed, "when it's done" release schedule.

This approach is also beneficial when it comes to balancing two webcomics: if I tried to tackle Comics Chronicle with the same strict deadlines and work schedule I do with Because I'm Depressed, I probably would've collapsed under the pressure and given up on it. Treating it as a secondary project, something I can work on when I have the time rather than a thing I need to worry about completing by some self-imposed deadline, allows me to work on it free of stress and guilt.

^ & ^^: I have read that biography of Andre the Giant! Haven't read the others though; I'll have to add them to my wishlist.

The first short is out today. It's a 12-panel strip briefly outlining the history of the vaccine and its predecessors in medical science.

Laura here was hired as Diego's new coworker in one strip and quit two strips later, never to be seen again. I think I would've liked to have done a bit more with her.

The longest storylines I've done that take place over the course of a single day have been eight strips long, or eight weeks.

My comic started out with the placeholder title "BCDE", which I eventually backronymed (sort of) into "BeCause I'm DEpressed". Some other worthy candidates:

Bicameral Democracy Endures
Buy a Carton of a Dozen Eggs
Before Christ, Dinosaurs Existed
Bankers Committing Deplorable Embezzlement
Boomsticks Can Destroy Everything
Blind Corneas in Dead Eyes
British Children Don't Expectorate
Become a Certified Diabetes Educator
Boot Configuration Data Error
Ball-Crushing Dominatrix Ensemble
Bloodthirsty Chewbacca Devours Ewoks
Blimps Can Deflate Easily
Bankrolling Corrupt Delegates Esoterically
Bill Clinton Doinked Everyone
Bibliographic Classification, a Dubious Enterprise
Blondes Can't Do Engineering
Broken Condoms Don't Encapsulate
British Columbia Doesn't Exist

"Comics Chronicle: Comics about History, Democracy, and Justice", 24th Feb 2022, 1:59 AM #15

It may be hard to tell from the comics I've shared on CF in the past, but I am a big fan of history, and my favorite kind of comics are nonfiction. I believe comics are a powerful medium, with immense potential for sharing history, journalism, the sciences, and personal memoirs in an accessible and appealing format. For a long time I've wanted to branch out from my other comics into making nonfiction works, and recently I got all my ducks in a row and launched Comics Chronicle as a place to share these comics.

Currently there is only one comic uploaded, but of course I plan on creating more in the future, both longer features as well as short strips. I already have a lot of ideas about what I would like to do next. For those of you who decide to give them a read, I hope you find them engaging and informative!

The title card for inaugural comic:

I also drew a bunch of dumb video game comics in the past, and I still see them getting passed around on the web now and then. A few examples:
