My comic is called The Blackmail Kid. It's a kind of funky noir teen detective drama about a guy who wants to take a girl to a concert and is willing to lie, cheat, steal, work for dirty cops and blackmail criminals to get the money. No way that can go wrong!
Hello, I'm not new at DD, but after I just found out that you may present your comic or your updates here after you have reviewed the comic of the previous speaker, I thought: Great idea!
With The Blackmail Kid
, supercomixking has produced an unusual comic in several respects (which is nothing unusual in the DD environment). I'll first list what upsets me about this work of art and then what I really like about it.
supercomixking wanted to create an unusual layout. And he succeeded. The design and especially the lettering are so extraordinary that without the firm intention of reviewing the comic only after reading it, i.e. without a magnifying glass, I would never have understood what it was actually about.
I think its design is great in itself, but it's taken way too far. The lettering - sometimes tiny letters, shaded, in a serif font - is simply unreadable without special measures. NB: More and more people are viewing comics online, including DD, on their smartphones. This is very, very tiring with this novel…
You'll get a lot more readers if you simplify your layout, dear supercomixking. I'm convinced of that!
I really like the morbid story, the mood and the wonderfully nasty characters that I can still somehow like. The story isn't really recognizable yet, but it seems unusual and good.
Conclusion: Basically, “The Blackmail Kid” is awesome if you've managed to read the comic.
Some of you have already seen the Birdmantime's Hero
novel here, especially as it has been advertised several times. (I can only recommend you to use the DD ads if you have a few bucks to spare! Even if you don't suddenly get 1000 more readers per day, the money helps our admin to fund the ever-increasing amount of readable material on DD).
Ok, the plot is simple: It's the year 2078, the world is in a bad shape, but some nations want to demonstrate that humanity is not yet down. That's why they maintain a Mars station and want to supply Earth with super valuable materials from Mars. Giselle Bernier, a good-looking French biologist, also wants to do something for humanity and has applied for the Mars mission.
Birdmentime's Hero now tells the story of how her mission develops, starting on the day she is accepted by the IMMP (International Mars Mission Project).
What the term “Birdmentime's Hero” is all about will probably be revealed in the chapter 6.Today's update
(which was supposed to be released last Thursday, but wasn't due to a Thanksgiving party trip gone horribly wrong) is once again set in Giselle's hospital room, located more than 100 meters underground in the secret IMMP base in Kazakhstan. Not much happens, and the actors barely wear anything. However, this will soon change - in the next chapter at the latest.
