Optical Sloth weighed in with a review of Almighty Then,Crude Dude Comix, Spaz, Huju, King Cat and Pale Fire, Catfight and Cursed alomg with comics from Barry Rodges and Chris Anderson. High-Low covered several comics from Sparkplug and Mineshaft. ComixTalk recommended The Complete K Chronicles and du9 talks about a big book called Kramer’s Ergot 7 (via Madinkbeard.)
Sly Eagle posted a fun character analysis technique that could let you show off the internal reality of your comic’s characters. A Nickel’s Worth interviews Cory Thomas – as always, watch question six. And here’s a chance to hear the inimitable Mel Blanc on advertising.
And I wish I had the coding skillz to put something like this rating system together for webcomics (via Tech Review.) Even though comic reading is pretty subjective, I think that would give us a much better idea about which are considered the best comics by the reading masses. There could be a best comic (which would probably be in constant change,) then best gag/story comic, then best action/horror/supers/etc category and so on. Maybe one of you can put this together for all of us…
The Floating Lightbulb brings us a useful analysis of website readers and visitors. And speaking of readers, is your comic on Tangent’s reading list? Actually, that’s pretty forward of Tangent to offer that information … I’d be worried that creators would get offended by not being on the list or worse – being on the comics-I’ve-lost-interest-in part of the list.
I like this script critique from iFanboy. I also liked reading about every single news bit I saw in this post from The Dish, especially the Publisher’s Weekly one.
For those who are reluctant to draw, don’t listen to the voices that tell you that you can’t draw. I’ve seen results like these – even though the food analogy threw me a little.
