No Hugging, No Learning

HippieVan at 12:00AM, Nov. 18, 2016



Recently I wrote a throwaway character for my comic based on a real-life friend of mine. In short, he’s a loveable misanthrope. And because he’s based on a real human being, I felt like I owed the character something: he won’t grow, or change, or become a ...

Stuck in the Middle - Midpoints

I've often found the Midpoint of a story difficult to find and difficult to write.
It's one of the big three pillars in story structure, and it's the
most subtle.

The Midpoint doesn't have the “dragged into a new world” of ...

I recently posted the above image (click through to see the whole thing) as an extra in my comic. I drew it for myself after I realized something: I kept forgetting the details.

When Death Comes…

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 12, 2016



No matter what the genre, plot and general tone of your comic, death always is absolute.

I was a big fan of all the Indiana Jones movies back in the day. When the fourth one, Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, finally came out, it was exciting times! Harrison Ford only seemed ...

Genejoke at 12:00AM, Nov. 9, 2016

Embrace the Pun! by Barry Corbett.




The title says it all, Embrace the Pun is a gag comic made up entirely of terrible puns. I say that with love, because personally I love bad puns.

The format is simple and effective, a single image and a pun, no more, no ...
