Being politely asked to leave in Monterey, CA.

Apparently gin is communicated on a time delay.

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Here's the deal--is gin a delicious morning refreshment or is it the downfall of the British Empire as produced by Boris Johnson?

I welcome your erudite responses.

The Letter M:
I wouldn't call this fashion. More like buying things which catch my eye like a deranged magpie.


Dude, I gotta get over to Australia. You people know how to carry on with carrying on.

I wanna get loaded and throw large appliances off a parking structure wid you and Argyle.

I seem to remember another hockey comic. Please link it.

In any case, welcome back to full strength!

CrosEL:
I see why some scenes are confusing now, should arrows only be on the gutters or should space be allowed on the sides too,, to also help show the flow of the strips?


Arrows to show the next panel are crutches. I would not recommend them in future works. Good panel flow means not having to use those... and anyway the tails of your dialogue balloons should serve that purpose already.

Gutters give space for the readers’ eyes to momentarily rest. I would err on the side of too much, unless intentional claustrophobia and confusion are your goals... and depending on the work, these can be worthy goals.

...(RockB):

Serious question: How about thumbnails, is thumbnailing better?


Captions and thumbnails and scripts and anything else for the purposes of constructing a work, sure use em whatever gets it done.

My contempt is reserved for “finished products” that don’t stand on their own. There’s another thread covering this, but imho author’s notes should add to or multiply the effect of the comic page, not work damage control on a flawed page.

IMHO, author’s note descriptions are a friggin’ crutch. I find them irritating and pathetic—we’re here to do comics, not captions.

I've seen page images stacked in order to display them as a scroll on an "extra page" that's linked in from the author's notes or a menu bar. I forget who did it (please chime in) but they added it as a bonus at the completion of every chapter.

Negative. Panel order and gutters need attention.

To illustrate: take a red pen and draw a continuous line in the order of everything a reader’s eye is expected to look at. It is confusing.

Apologies, Master Centcomm—just passing through.

Sure, it's fine. Go ahead and hang up them spurs.

Go ahead and live a "normal" life for a while: consuming convenient content, working for second-tier organizations, and dreaming other people's dreams.

You'll be back.

Do you not?

Precaution: producer must be skilled at written interactions.

Let’s be real.

When you can produce an equivalent level of quality in less time without tracing, then yes, it’s a crutch and you will burn in hell.

OK, so what? Either you forgive yourself or you don't.

Because tears don't make pages... grindin' makes pages.

Welcome back.

Not reading enough of works great and small; not spending enough time in museums.

That, and falling in love with a perennial underdog of a medium.

Comics will break your heart.

If you were already going to draw a comic, if you were already going to do a blog on CSP, if you were already going to draw NSFW, sure sure sure, push a Patreon. But doing it for its own sake? I'd be cautious about doing something merely because it offers "a benefit" without weighing the required costs in time and energy. That's how you spread yourself thin on trivialities.
