Adapting Myth to Modernity (part 2)

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Feb. 18, 2017



So last week I’d started talking about the reincarnation upon reincarnation of myth and legend into modern sequential and narrative art- and got some pretty insightful comments on why it persists for millennia (it is said that Euripides adapted the legend of Medea himself in order to make it ...

Good Starts: Beginnings, again.

HyenaHell at 12:00AM, Feb. 17, 2017



Welcome back, gang! Er, can I call y'all “gang”? Is that too informal or too assumptive about your willingness for complicity in my extra curricular activities? Eh, too bad. Once you're in the gang, there's only one way out. Now, while you're letting that sink in ...

ACT 2 - The Premise

It's about a guy who…

When we try to decide with our friends about seeing a movie, or surf Netflix for something to watch, or try to sell people on a movie/book/story we want them to experience, that's what we have to ...

Adapting Myth to Modernity (part 1)

Tantz_Aerine at 5:03AM, Feb. 11, 2017

Start... Uh... Where?

HyenaHell at 1:02AM, Feb. 10, 2017



Huh. You're still here? I'll be damned.

Well then. Let's just go ahead and pick up where we left off last week, which if I recollect, was the beginning. Or at least, that's where you stepped into my world. Now, how you think about beginnings has ...

This Year's New Resolutions (a bit late)

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Feb. 6, 2017



At the start of the new year, I decided to make a couple resolutions. The first was that I am not going to buy any new clothes this year because I invested in a sewing machine because I plan to sew my own outfits from fabric.

The second resolution is ...

Of course I know what I'm doing.

HyenaHell at 12:00AM, Feb. 3, 2017



Every good story (true, fabricated, or more typically, somewhere in between) here in the City That Forgot to Care, begins with a thoughtful pause, a drawn out “Well,” followed by the phrase “what had happened was…”

“Who drank my beer?”
“Dude, what happened to your face?”
“Why are you carrying ...

Playing with Time

Banes at 12:00AM, Feb. 2, 2017



Time doesn't really exist in comics. Someone can blast through multiple pages in seconds, or linger on one panel for years. Well, that would be rare. But you see what I'm saying.

What if you want to make your readers slow down? To give your pages the pace ...

Hippie Van’s last-ever newspost

HippieVan at 12:00AM, Jan. 27, 2017



Hey everyone! And farewell, also.

When I started writing this newspost I went looking for the first one I ever did. It turns out it was in November of 2013 - that’s over three years of Friday newsposts! I don’t think I’ve ever kept a paying job that ...
