Result in thread: Your most favorite tropes?

The Fish out of Water trope features in so many of my stories, you could make it a drinking game. Usually coupled with You Can't Go Home Again, though I've been trying to move away from that one as of late.

The addition of a Supernatural genre is most welcome! And more moderation tools will help as well.

I use Liferea. It's relatively lightweight and simple, and I'm used to it after years of use.

Liferea knows a few tricks, like fetching the comments of a blog post from WordPress-powered websites, but not the form itself, and I'm not sure how it does that anyway.

Think it's a coincidence that lately when Top Web Comics sends me to something hosted on Webtoons, there's almost always an age check? Way too often. Kind of unlikely that so many comics there would be adult.

As the title says (source: Twitter). No comment, just... brace for impact. It can't be long now.

I looked in my list of webcomics and noticed how many of them were hosted here. So I joined. And it turned out to be a great idea for many reasons.

3) Per page whenever a whole chapter is available.

(Because catching up with a whole chapter at once is tiring, and waiting long irregular intervals between pages makes it easy to forget what's going on.)

Team Stormbow:Wait, how does one do that? Like many here, I don't have any money of my own, but I'd be totally down to have ads on my comic to keep the site running.


It's in INFO & SETTINGS > Edit Settings, under Functionality -> Advertisement, on each comic's management interface.

Would it help to know that I subscribed to your comic after reading this thread?

Robotwin.com:I dunno why letsencrypt isn't allowed to blanket SSL all the subdomains. They say on their site they can do that. I guess dreamhost has some obstacles in place?


I have two websites of my own, on different web hosts. Both give me SSL for free with no extra action on my part, for all subdomains. You decide what that says about hosts that don't.

As for funding, I was surprised to discover that Project Wonderful was never replaced by ComicAd Network here. Guess there must be a reason for it?

Welcome! Thanks for the compliment, and good luck! I just decided to dip a toe myself, after hanging around for a few years. It works like a charm here, go ahead with confidence, and... show us what you make. ;)

Well, it certainly seems to work! (Shameless plug.) Can't promise to leave it on, after all it's very short even divided into scenes like that. And of course it would need more work to make presentable. But the process was amazingly easy, the format is a great fit, and this is a chance to give something back. Thanks, everyone!

Edit: turns out there's a quirk: comics that use custom HTML instead of simple page images don't work with the infinite scroll view. Something to keep in mind if that's important to you.

So let me get this straight: this is possible right now by abusing custom templates and/or page descriptions? Then we don't even need much, mostly just a way to mark written fiction as such, so people can choose if they want to read it or not.

That would be nice. Then I could post some of my own work, since I write but don't make comics.

Tell me about it! My personal catalog alone has 24 comics hosted on SmackJeeves that never moved to other places. But even archiving one comic is a lot of effort without special means. At least authors can download their own, but outside of that? Much will be lost, and that's, ugh.

Somehow I failed to notice until today, so maybe other people could use the heads-up: with the site closing down in less than a month, SmackJeeves lifted their geo-block, so if you have a comic to archive, it's now possible to do that from EU countries. A couple of my favorites even continued to update in this time! Enjoy, and hope this helps.

snuffysam:Something interesting is that, as far as I can tell, photo comics HAVE taken off to a certain extent?


Did they? In my experience, that's one technique that nobody ever figured how to make work, and they died off. Well, apart from Lego comics, arguably? But those are a niche.

As a reader, I like both. 3D comics are more work, anecdotally, from what creators say (arguably a paradox, but there you have it; games are the same, by the way). And in the past they tended to feel lifeless, like someone else pointed out, but in the mean time techniques have improved. I know at least a couple that look absolutely amazing. But of course 2D allows more nuance, at the cost of requiring a different skill set.

Absolutely! Besides, looking back at the way your art has evolved can be amazing. Some of the best, most popular comics today started out looking like a kid's doodles. They attracted an audience through story and writing, and the rest came with time. Now they look stunning, and it's only because the creators kept at it. Just think of Two Kinds, which is ongoing, though the now-completed Zap! went through a near-identical arc.

Speaking as a reader, reboots can be tiresome. You've been following a story for years and years, then bam! It starts over one day instead of going on.

Reboots can work after a hiatus though. Better than abandoning entirely. Otherwise, yeah, it's probably better to keep going and improve things along the way.
