Where does your main audience come from? And how do you change your work to accommodate them?

For a lot of us it's north Americans (mainly from the USA), which is interesting, especially for those of us outside of there because our cultures are slightly different. We THINK we totally understand each other but there ARE differences. So to make ourselves properly understood with the original intent of the story we often have to translate things slightly (much more in Tantz's case!). This goes doubly when a story is set in a different era. How much do you localise your story for the audience, how much SHOULD you?

This week Gunwallace has given us the theme to The Caraway Crew - What’s behind that corner? What’s out there lurking in the dark shadows? Why it’s demon breakdancing robots of course! A mystery tale setting beginning gives way to a marching, mechanically robotic stomping rhythm!

Correct...that's why my comic script is always weaker for the american audiences ....
