Well, we're going to have to ask for a bit more detail if you want us to supply a title for it. It'd be a bit silly if you're making a serious comic about war or politics, and have us suggest Magical Girl Bubble-Chan, or something. :P

I collect titles, though, so if you give me some plot-details, I could dig through my list and see if anything fits.

I usually give a comic a name after writing out 10 chapters of its script.

To help you with naming a comic, ask yourself the following questions.

Centers on the main protagonist/antagonist
- What kind of job does he/she have? Then proceed on finding words that are associated with that kind of job.
- What adjective best describes your main protagonist and/or antagonist?
- Is there any ‘catch phrase’ your protagonist likes to say all the time? Or odd habits that are worthy of attention (ex: the way Beavis and Butthead laugh)
- What are the origins of your protagonist/antagonist?
- What is the goal of the protagonist/antagonist?
- What best describes the relationship between the protagonist and the antagonist?
- Does the protagonist have a weird name?

Centers on the setting
- Where is all this drama taking place?
- When is it taking place? The time period?

Centers on the overall theme.
- Do you have a political or religious agenda on your comic? If so, find words associated with what you're trying to promote or criticize.
- Do you have any ‘moral lessons’ you wanna impart on your readers?


*If you know another language besides English, USE IT in coming up with titles. For example, I named my comic “MAG-ISA” (to be alone) because it is Tagalog word that can best describe the situation of the protagonist.


Hope this helps.

So… is it a fighting comic. I guess that's something, but you really aren't giving us very much to work with. What are the main characters names and personalities? Post a plot synopsis, please.
