Neither of us have Facebook and both of us very sincerely loathe it, the only upside to it, that we can think of, is how amusing it can be when someone we haven't seen for a while tells us they've been following us on Facebook. Depending on whether or not we want to be jerks we let them know they couldn't have been or just run with it. Neither of us have been asked what we have to hide, denied employment opportunities; some companies like it when you don't have Facebook, means you can't talk smack about them online; and when we make new friends, it happens, shut up, we just ask for a number or email to keep in touch with. It's kind of nice to not be a collector card, which is what it feels like to be on Facebook, and as for promotion, check out this video, it'll make you rethink the whole thing.

If you can't or find the runtime off putting, it's about the usefulness of Facebooks likes and discusses the legal and illegal purchase of likes through Facebook ads and click farms, explains how the like system works then shows you how completely pointless likes are.

If you want views we highly recommend posting on several Reddit Subreddits like r/webcomics, r/CreativeRoom, r/comicbookart, r/ArtBuddy, r/storycomics, r/makecomics, r/comicwriting and whatever genre pages you can find, r/horror, r/lovecraft and so on as an example. We received 342 visitors on November 6th and 785 pageviews, for perspective, a paid ad we placed in May on TopWebcomics netted 143 visitors and 1176 pageviews, the visitors matter more then the pageviews, so we paid for ad space, which was around two hundred for four days, and received more for free from posting on Reddit.

Facebook and Twitter are a waste of time compared to that, they are good for networking but putting up a poster in your local comic store, school, library bulletin board and wherever else you can, printing cards to hand out to people you meet, getting a shirt of your comic you can proudly wear at cons where you give away free posters and so on, are all better and garner you more of a genuine response. Our book is somewhat known in our community because we've done this, we've talked to honest to goodness fans in person and wow, is it ever humbling, and our book is shit compared to so many others here on ComicFury.

Stay frosty.

We often say every comic creator is fighting an uphill battle against Batman. It doesn't matter how great your work is, how much of a fan following you have, Batman wins every single time because he's a ridiculously huge franchise character with an immense set of side characters that all have a equally ridiculous amount of steam built up over an enormous amount of time barreling down the street at an impossible speed. No one can beat Batman, all we can do is the same thing Bill Finger and Bob Kane (and all his ghost artists) did, and that's to keep producing new, consistent, ever-evolving to stay relevant content.

Boys love comics are the Batman of the net now-a-days, used to be Dungeons and Dragons and gag-a-days, weren't trans related comics a thing last month? There's always a new big rush and it'll be something else soon enough, just keep producing new, consistent, ever-evolving to stay relevant content and you'll eventually, through attrition alone, burst free and stand tall.

If you want instant success however then by all means, succumb to the flash, just know it's a flash and while sometimes they can last a good long while, eventually something new will come along and steal the eyes of everyone not currently watching the latest Batman related release and you'll be back at, you guess it, producing new, consistent, ever-evolving to stay relevant content to win those eyes back again.

Even the mighty Batman has had that happen and yet he's still the standard, he's had to claw his way back to the top a few times and he does so by appearing in new, consistent, ever-evolving to stay relevant content. It's the only thing that works, hit people over the head with media long enough and eventually it becomes mainstream.

If you don't like Batman as an example that's cool, replace Batman with Disney animated features and related media, Star Wars, Harry Potter, whatever multi billion dollar conglomerate you want to put in Batman's place is fine, the point still stands, keep producing new, consistent, ever-evolving to stay relevant content and you'll eventually get somewhere.

Stay frosty.

Hello furious friends, we've decided to go back and add some sound effects to our pages, one we're a bit stuck with is the sound of a rumbling fire that has consumed a city. 'Bwoosh' came to mind but we think it sounds more like an explosion then a raging inferno, anyone have any suggestions?

This was a good start; maybe an edit when you can with your rates; we'd recommend you make a post on Reddit and Twitter, we'd certainly upvote and retweet you!

In general, if you feel that your original attempt in no way did the story and characters justice then yes, but if there is a foundation to build on without necessarily starting over, consider just continuing. It sounds like, you've been working to signifcantly improve, and want this work to be your best, so perhaps a reboot is in order.

Yes, it's great fun!

We actually had someone shipping our resident Victorian vampire with the (human) leader of her group. She politely told the readership (in our IronGate extras which are linked to the comic) right now she prefers an existence of service over romantic adventures. It always interesting to watch characters and their relationships evolve over time!

IronGate is a centuries old organization struggling to protect humanity in a secret crusade against inhuman supernatural forces. Now one of their leaders has found and recruited a handful of people touched by those same mystical forces to act as an elite group to face the most dangerous threats. While serving IronGate, each must also struggle with how the supernatural has changed their own lives.

The ancient Greeks used "eis koraras" or "ball eis koraras" (this has been transliterated into our alphabet) it literally translates to something like "throw yourself to the crows", or in terms of meaning "go to hell". This saying is based on the idea of the person it's directed at dying and their corpse being shamefully left to rot. To my understanding, a variation of this is still used in Greece today.
