As you know, May 1st (tomorrow) is free comic book day. While you are busy getting the freebies, have the self discipline to make a purchase while you are there and keep your comic shop open.
♦ Webcomic Overlook took a break from video games to promote some Webby picks. Webcomics Critique has hope for Starcrossed and Optical Sloth reviewed comics by John Brodowski, Aaron Norhanian and Mark Hensel.
♦ 8-bit Theater has run its course. Finis. For realz.
♦ Darkstalkers returns. I know you’ve been waiting.
♦ Brat-halla went to the 400 wall and Manga Critic turned onesies. Congrats!
♦ It’s worth mentioning twice that May 14th is Dialogue Free Comics Day. As it so happens, I just found the G.I. Joe comic (it’s in the reprints in Volume 3) that has the Silent Issue. And I ordered it so I could examine the storytelling techniques (and drift back to youthful memories, I suppose.) I’ll keep my eye on the comics submitted for DFCD – there is still time to submit yours.
♦ And if you don’t write your comic script separately from your pencils, you might just be a script-comicker.
♦ And I agree with this guy.
